60 Max Power O:
The Green Bay Packer clinched the NFC Central title by closing out the Chicago Bears in grand fashion.
However, the Packers aren’t happy with just division titles, they want Super Bowls rings and they feel that they are just getting warmed up.
Along with key players getting healthy, there is a feeling that the team is coming together at the right time.
When a team is hitting their stride, you can break out all the clichés quotes, enjoy Packers fans:
"Not to diminish anything," McCarthy said, "but we are just getting started. We feel that way as a football team. Not trying to be arrogant, [but] we feel that a lot better football is in front of us," according to Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com.
"I think guys are jelling," Woodson said. "These tough games, man, they test your team. That's when you find out what kind of team you've got. ... People respond in those situations, it makes for a good team."
"We're hitting our peak at the right time," defensive lineman B.J. Raji said.
"We're getting there," Pickett said. "We're starting to play good at the right time, and that's what it's all about. We're headed that way."
"I've definitely been on a Super Bowl team," cornerback Tramon Williams said. "Do I think we are a capable Super Bowl team? No doubt about it. But I don't know yet."
We'll give Woodson the final say.
"We like where we're at this point," he said, "... but we know we can still get better, and we're going to get better."

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Greg Jennings could be preparing to play his final few games with the Green Bay Packers, and the two-time Pro Bowl, soon-to-be-free-agent wide receiver knows it.
"Sometimes you look on the wall and you see a lot of writing," Jennings said Wednesday in the locker room. "And it's hard to ignore that writing as a player. Because you never want...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Less than eight minutes away from clinching the NFC North, the Packers, with a comfortable 21-10 lead over the Chicago Bears, decided to try a trick play. However, it backfired terribly, almost got the Bears back in the game and had quarterback Aaron Rodgers wondering why it was even attempted.
"I wasn't thrilled with the call, to be honest with you,"...
With an opportunity to become NFC North champions for the second consecutive year, the Green Bay Packers went into Chicago and got it done.

Aaron Rodgers didn't put up huge numbers in this game, but the NFL's reigning MVP played worthy of that title. Rodgers completed 23 of 36 passes...
Greg Jennings is not naive and he's not ignoring reality, either.
The veteran wide receiver is in the final year of his contract, and has yet to hear from the Green Bay Packers about an extension. Common sense - and Green Bay history - would suggest that means he'll be playing somewhere else next season, a notion Jennings doesn't dispute. But even with the Packers playing...
Green Bay Packers WR Greg Jennings continued to discuss his future with the team. Jennings was asked whether or not he plans on being back with the team next season.
“Will I be here? That’s totally up to the Packers,” responded Jennings, via NFL.com. “I know one way I don’t want to be here is under a franchise tag.”
Jennings, 29, is set to become an unrestricted free...
According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy wouldn’t say for sure whether cornerback/safety Charles Woodson will play this week.
Coach Mike McCarthy would not guarantee that Charles Woodson (broken collarbone) would be back for the Tennessee game Sunday, but he did say he hoped to get him some action before the playoffs...
Greg Jennings has been Aaron Rodgers‘ favorite receiver for going on six years now. But the times may be a changing in Green Bay.
Jennings has been the Packers’ most productive receiver and biggest red zone threat over the past five years, averaging about 70 catches, 1,100 yards and nine touchdowns over that span. But a lingering groin injury this season severely limited his...
Packers linebacker Clay Mathews brought out his inner Magic Mike yesterday after a sack on Bears QB Jay Cutler. It's not surprising that twitter blew up with ladies saying how hot his new dance looked. I was a little more into the game than the dance which the Packers won 21-10 behind three touchdowns by receiver James Jones.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Donald Driver is a four-time Pro Bowl selection, the Green Bay Packers' all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards, a Super Bowl champion and a "Dancing with the Stars" winner.
But even though Driver's DWTS success last spring did wonders for his celebrity status, the 37-year-old is having a challenging 14th season with the Packers. Driver...
Dear Tom Brady, Please do not take this letter as anything personal. Your team just demolished a juggernaut Texans squad and you’re about to face a slugfest with the boys from San Francisco later tonight.
