D gets some backhanded love
 
NFL.com news: AFC trio backs into playoffs but momentum isn't always a must

Can anyone play defense?

It's amazing that some of the best teams heading into the playoffs don't seem capable of slowing down opponents. It's starting to look like giving up 300 yards and less than 30 points is a pretty good day for a playoff team. The Saints and San Francisco 49ers did just that and it was good enough for solid wins.

After watching the Packers, Patriots, and Lions surrender 1,527 yards and 107 points between them, all I can say is Rodgers, Tom Brady and Matt Stafford better be close to perfect in the playoffs or this formula is going to blow up in their faces.

THe "D" has given up yards BUT Not points.

We are excellent on 3rd down ("O" & "D") - the KIttens went 0-5 on 3rd downs.

So....

JUST WIN BABY!!

I was thinking the same thing. If we could just get a little more pass rush. And, a few more interceptions in the playoffs -- we get the jewelry.

I'd be OK with DB not getting intercepted, too.

I'm going to say this: The Packers defense has been coming up with TAKEAWAYS. That's it!!! They have some standout players on defense but overall the Saints defense is much better. And since our offense is better, if we play them, they will lose.

Any team who's leader (Rogers) is seen blowing on party favors and ****ing around before a game is going to lose. Rogers' time is almost up. All I'm going to do is laugh.

We are in the middle of the pack when it comes to giving up points... so we do give up points. Average... I don't want to be average!

We should be better than Average... all this hype and talk in the off season By GW and the D and we get Average? Please.

Agreed. The playoffs are for real, talk is cheap, especially in the nose bleed seats.
