My true Packer fandom began in 2000 with my first trip to Lambeau Field, before that I was young and bounced around between that years hottest team. But since then I have experience heartbreak after heartbreak in the playoffs.
I want to know what game sticks in your mind the most over the last few years. The top two nominees to me are the 2004 Divisional Playoffs in Philly and the 2008 NFC Championship.
The 2008 NFC Championship for me was by far easier to get over. I dont think the Packers would have stood a chance against the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. Once I saw the way the Giants pass rush went after Brady I knew we would not have fared well. Especially the way Burress and Manning torched our more than suspect pass defense in the title game.
I dont know if I have still fully gotten over the 2004 Divisional Playoffs. We had that game! I have no doubt we would have gone into Carolina and won. Then Super Bowl XXXVIII would have been a toss up. I understand that in the NFL it is hard to say for sure we would have won, but there wasn't anyone who doubted we were destined for Houston.
If the Packers can go into Philly and win it will help ease the pain of that unfortunate loss.
Lets hope the Packers can get on a role and we can go to Dallas to spoil Jerry Jones' party!
