Column: Packers are in the midst of another golden era
Talk of a dynasty will certainly heat up if the Packers win another Lombardi Trophy on Feb. 5. Any team with a chance to win three straight is going to be the object of intense and endless discussion on that topic. After all, only twice in the 92-year history of the NFL have teams won three in a row: The 1929-31 Packers before there were playoffs - when the title was decided by the final standings - and the 1965-67 Lombardi teams.

But even if the Packers fall short this year, their current run of success still ranks among the best ever.

The New York Giants appear to be a different, more confident team than the one that lost seven games in the regular season.

Will that be enough to upset the Green Bay Packers on Sunday in an NFC divisional playoff game at Lambeau Field?

Not one of four executives in personnel for NFL teams that were surveyed Tuesday thinks the Giants (10-7) will beat the Packers (15-1).

"I think it's going to be a battle," an NFC scout said. "If you had asked me this six weeks ago, I wouldn't have thought that. But I do think Green Bay will win because they're so good. "This isn't coasting a little bit at the end of the year because we won so dang many games. This is a playoff game . . . single-elimination . . . and that's a lot different. You put Green Bay in that mentality against the Chiefs, and the Chiefs don't have a chance."
