NFL Division Preview: NFC North
Kiss the Ringzzz
In honor of the World Champion Green Bay Packers kicking things off tonight, we move to the NFC Norse for our next division preview...
1.) Who is the best player in the NFC North: Aaron Rodgers (GB), Calvin Johnson (DET), Julius Peppers (CHI) or Adrian Peterson (MIN)?
Dave Hendrie: I love AP but I have to go with Rodgers based on the importance of his position.
2.) True or False: Green Bay is the odds on favorite to win the Superbowl?
DH: False. I know they are set at every position, young, and the defending champs, but I have to say that putting them over the Steelers or Pats is silly talk.
3.) If you were an Offensive Lineman, who would you dread blocking the most: Suh (DET), Matthews (GB), Peppers (CHI) or Allen (MIN)?
DH: I am pretty sure Matthews shouldn't count because a tight end could handle him. He is such a paper tiger I can't even stand it. Allen is off the juice so he is also not in the discussion. Even though he is a bit of a check collector (must have gotten it from his basketball experience), Peppers is my pick here. Suh might overtake him this year, but I hate him with all my being due to his egregiously dirty play. When is the media going to wake up and start hammering this guy?
4.) If Jay Cutler, Aaron Rodgers, Christian Ponder and Mathew Stafford walk into a bar, who leaves with the best looking girl?
DH: Ponder. Stafford and Cutler like thick women and Rodgers is too low key. Ponder just got out of the game at FSU and is an absolute stud.
