It is Amazing the Packers Won the Super Bowl

Did you know - The Packers had such problems with injuries that they had two Offensive lineman play snaps on D this season?less than a minute ago via TweetDeck

Isn't that amazing? The Packers lost so many guys throughout the year, and they were still the last team standing at the end of the year. Not only did they lose stars like Jermichael Finley and Ryan Grant, they got hit hard and deep at places like the defensive line, yet they were able to plug people in and keep winning. The Super Bowl itself is a perfect example. Early in the game they lost Donald Driver and Charles Woodson, and it seemed like they didn't even miss a beat. They didn't make excuses. They just kept plugging away.

That seemed to be one of the messages that Mike Munchak was trying to get across in his press conference the other day. No excuses. Injuries are a part of football. The last couple of seasons the Titans have let them be an excuse for losing, but why should they? The Packers didn't.

Now obviously personnel comes into play here. The Titans clearly haven't had the depth to maintain a high level of play when certain guys go down. Green Bay is one of the deepest teams in the league because they have drafted well and have signed the right free agents. Well that, and they have Aaron Rodgers.
