Who are Packers fans cheering for in the Conference Championship Games?

New, comments

We want to know just what portion of the Packers fan base is willingly cheering for the Vikings or Patriots this weekend.

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers Dan Powers-USA TODAY Sports

We at Acme Packing Company have our suspicions as to the feelings of most Green Bay Packers fans going into this weekend’s Conference Championships, but today is the time to put those feelings into numbers. We want to know who you, the Packers fan and APC reader, will be pulling for in Sunday’s games.

Will you pull for the upstart Jaguars to upset Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, and company? Or is there some part of your fandom that allows you to have the capacity to root for New England on Sunday?

We expect the NFC game to be similarly one-sided, but we want to know how many Packers fans will actually willingly cheer for the Minnesota Vikings to advance to play a Super Bowl in their home stadium. If you are cheering for the Vikings over the Eagles, we also hope that you will explain why. Do you have friends or relatives who are Vikings fans and whom you want to see happy? Is there some part of you that thinks a Minnesota win will be good for the rivalry with the Packers?

Or, for the even more cynical, perhaps there is a desire to see the Vikings advance to the title game at home and then lose when they get there.

Please tell us in the comments who you’re pulling for this weekend and why.
