After yesterday’s games, it appears that Green Bay has a real chance at making the playoffs. The Packers need to beat the Bears next week — and the Bears ought to be resting their good players after the first series of snaps, since they’ve already clinched homefield advantage — and the resurgent Redskins need to beat the troubled New York Football Giants, who today are battling rumors that their coach will be fired at the year’s end. I’m not saying that it will happen; I’m saying it’s a realisitic possibility.
I’m not saying the playoffs would be easy, either. I’m just saying, when you’re a fan, you don’t abandon the team, because they just might pull through.
