Right. I was doing the math based on calendar years, not actual NFL seasons. You're correct.

It may be Eli's first playoff game at Lambeau since then, but he has played 2 regular season games since then against the Packers, and lost them both (this year in NY, and a blowout loss last year at Lambeau: 45-17). Eli MAY arguably have a better receiving core and healthy RB's than he did in '07, but EVERYTHING about the packers is SIGNIFICANTLY better in 2011 than it was in 2007: the receiving corps, the QB, their RB situation, both the O and D lines, and above all, their D is almost night-and-day different, in a good way. This is a better Packers team than last year, when they won the whole frigging thing.

I'm MUCH more worried about a team like Baltimore and New Orleans than I am about the Giants. The G-men are just above Houston and Denver on my "Serious-Threat-O-Meter".

Eh. Obviously Manning has had playoff success, I'm not trying to take anything away from the guy. That being said, unless the Pack are overconfident and seriously rusty from their bye-week layoff or they get some significant in-game injuries, I can't see New York winning this game.
