IT'S TIME TO COMPETE FOR A CHAMPIONSHIP
THE NFC TITLE IS ON THE LINE
I still remember the words coming out of Mike McCarthy's mouth nearly 2 years to day...
"We're here to compete for a championship."
SAY WHAT? With Brett Favre pondering his future after a 4-12 season, and Ted Thompson gutting most of the roster in a bigger rebuilding project than most cared to believe, life in Packerland was murky at best.
Spin ahead 2 years, and things are as clear as the blue sky. Sure, they're the youngest team in the league...but coming back from 14-0 down shows this team doesn't flinch, doesn't blink, doesn't panic...and they're wise beyond their years.
Yes Packers fans, you are competing for a championship. And it might not be the only one this year.
