Are we a NYG type team (in the making) that can suck but get into the playoffs and superbowl it? or are we a glad to be here one and done team. That new orleans game was thrilling and all, but minus the beast quake and i'd looooooove to have that pic right now for a big name receiver (the only missing ingrdient).
Still wishing we had tanked 2 DAMN YEARS AGO? You are embarrassing.
No one said "wishing we tanked" saying after it was all said and done it didn't put us any further towards being a better team. A lot of the key guys from that team (save lynch) aren't even here. It was a great win and I loved every minute of it (as stated in the original quote) but it ultimately ended up being meaningless since we went in a different direction.
I'm not worried about the playoffs, either we miss it and we deserve to or we slip in some how and we deserve that to. not worried, im more worried about what we are gonna do when we get there. I don't wanna see a team get to the playoffs that has to rely on road wins to get to the superbowl that has proven so far that it can't win on the road. do you?
Do you want to see a team that can't kill a wounded lions team in the playoffs on national tv against a rested and angry Aaron Rogers? you want to be able to say your team beat out the cardinals that bad for a nationally televised sacrifice to one of these east coast teams we are not ready for on the road???
its not like these problems are new, this defense (While great) has had 3rd down problems since day one it just never manifested itself in a way that was too detrimental yet, now it has.
i think this fanbase has elevated beyond being "happy to be in the playoffs" this isn't 2003 get your mind right, this is a five time NFC west champion, 11 time playoff appearing, recent superbowl participating team. i'm not worrying about "getting into" the playoffs, that was my point.
We are the 2014 Superbowl champions and it can never, ever be taken away.
Greatest defense in NFL history.
