    I can't believe I didn't find this thread sooner. Nice to see some Brits interested in the NFL. I'm a Ravens fan, which pretty much sucks right now. F the Steelers. I hate that team so much. I still can't believe we lost that game. And my best friend is a Jets fan, so this is killing me right now. I hope the Bears win the Super Bowl now.

    All the way back to Foxborough because they lost to the Jets.

    (I'm a Colts fan, don't care that we lost as long as I get an opportunity to put you punk NE fans down.)

    Yeah I've found a fair few Brits with an NFL interest. More than I would have expected if I'm honest. What a great sport And I don't want the Steelers or the Jets top win, so any NFC team will make me happy.

    Hey, it's just banter :p: Next year this will happen all over again, just hopefully we'll go a little further.

    And you bet your sweet ass it does.

    Hell Yes

    The Packers completely dominated the game. The same will happen on Sunday. :p:

    Kansas City Chiefs fan here, which has been depressing for a few seasons but all is good now. How did most people get into watching/following nfl?

    I wouldn't say dominated, first quarter was all Falcons, 2nd Packers, Falcons took control again in the third but failed to capitalise, finally Packers took the game but it wasn't from solid offensive drives; it was through some sloppy defensive play.

    My ex girlfriend lived in Tampa, thus I went to a number of USF and Buccs games, developed a love for the sport from then really.

    :nah: The Packer offense was just unstoppable since the second quarter. That's why every coach in the league would love to have Aaron Rodgers on his team.

    Maybe, though Ryan has thrown the same amount of TDs with less interceptions. Only 200 yards fewer too. Ryan put the balls in there on the weekend, his offence just couldn't catch a cold.

    It's all about the play-offs, if you lose in the play-offs no one cares how well you did in the regular season after all.

    In a way, yes, however there are always a couple of QBs whom most people will recognise as having a good regular season. The play-offs does not identify the best players in the league, not by a long shot. If your team isn't in the play-offs the main reason to care is for your fantasy team.

    Second that, Rodgers and Matthews gonna run all over the bears and then do the steelers in the SB. Niners may have actually got somewhere if they drafted Rodgers.

    Well that's a lie, i think Belichick would rather have Brady, since he's better.
    Although you only have the Bears, you'd have your hands full with either the Steelers or the Jets in the Superbowl, that's IF you make it.

    To instantly assume you're in the SB final is moronic enough, but to claim you will "run all over the Steelers?" Yes, Yes of course you will, because the Steelers are the worst team in the NFL. Mug.

    Hmm interesting...if the pats were still in you would probably be saying exactly the same thing.
    At present in the postseason, the Packers pretty much hold all the best stats:

    1. Rodgers best QB, Roethlisberger doesn't even touch Rodgers.
    2. Most rushing yards
    3. Most interceptions
    4. Decent sack stats.

    Yeah obv it isn't dead cert they are gonna win or even reach the SB but it's looking all rosy.

    We'll see what happens this weekend.
