As for Aaron Rodgers, the guy played as well as he ever has in the second half of the season. He has a ton of great football left in him. But he’s 33 now, and he can’t do it himself. The guy needs help.
And the Packers better get it for him before his window does slam shut. Get this guy a running back he can count on. And some playmakers. If they want to get back to this point and beyond, it’s a critical off-season for Green Bay.
As for the Falcons, I had said it earlier this season. They were different. And Matt Ryan was different than what we had seen in the past. My reservation about these guys was that young defense. Look you can see they’re a freaking monster offensively. But was that young and inexperienced defense going to hold it up. Would these grow quickly enough to be a Super Bowl caliber defense? I was skeptical. But not anymore.
Look, putting up the numbers they do offensively, they don’t need to be the 85 bears. But they have to upgrade on defense.
