Get your chalk and get excited. Kudos to the Packers on locking a playoff spot a week early and giving themselves a 75% chance of playing Arizona and a 87.5% chance of not playing Favre in the first round.
Also, props go out to Chuck Woodson for being named a Pro Bowl starter, and to Rodgers and Collins for making the squad, as well. Because the players starting in front of both Rodgers and Collins could very well be playing in the Super Bowl the following week, we may be fortunate enough to see both playing a lot in the game if the Packers themselves aren't playing the following week.
I'm sure Ted Thompson is sitting at home right now jerking off to the news article that named Clay Matthews as a Pro Bowl alternate and am obviously happy for Clifton and Grant for making that team, as well.
How AJ Hawk made it beyond me as the only player on the defense that's worse in pass coverage is 2009/10's Packers Hendie (the Carroll's? Rhodes?) favorite Jarrett Bush...and that includes the d-line. While I'll save my montage of AP photos of opposing receivers catching touchdowns with Bush in the frame for that occassion (seriously, can we do this?), I'd like to credit Hawk's Pro Bowl alternate award to the rest of the much more taltented Packers defense that will certainly make watching the team more fun in years to come.
Playoffs, baby! Get excited!
