Over the season we've had many back and forths about never being happy unless the team wins the Super Bowl. I think it would be interesting to see what all of us view as an acceptable playoff result. This is completely open to your own interpretation.

I'm not including an option for losing to Carolina in the NFCCG because 1. I don't think they can beat Seattle and 2. If we lost to Carolina in the NFCCG I would hope all of you would be extremely upset.

Personally, beating Dallas is an absolute must. Losing at Seattle would suck but I do think they are a better team than we are and they of course match up great against us. So I'd be content with 1 win. While also wanting everyone fired of course.

Content?

I'm not content with anything but a ring but I also understand how hard it is to win it all.

Losing to DAL and Romo would be like a gut punch from Tyson though.

I guess I'll say at least beat them and if we lose to SEA, I can take it.

Green Bay is superior to Seattle offensively; the Sea Hawks, have the better defense across the board---players, coaching, coordinator and scheme effectiveness. Though, the 2014 regular season is easily the best the Packers have performed on defense since 2010.

Content with a playoff loss? It depends if the Packers go down fighting or get abused like they did in the 2011 and 12 season playoffs.

This thread is hella weak. Why would you even make a thread about what you're ok losing with?

It's another one of those "we don't have a chance against teams like Seattle/San Francisco" type things so basically just trying to accept it now I guess.

Content? Winners are never content. Nobody has ever trained for second place. Winning it all is the only goal.

There's a difference between being content and being rational. That is the key here. I'm only content with a SB win. If we lose, I will be angry and disappointed, but rational enough to know you start the year with a 3% chance to win it all and it doesn't mean we were a bad team or need to fire everyone.

That's the exact words I was trying to find. Well put.

Ok could you please change the title to "Which playoff result do you view as fair based on your perception of the Packers as well as their potential playoff opponents"

Thanks.

Dont see the point in this thread, but if we're going to lose it might as well be to Seattle since they are the better team. If we lose to Dallas I'll be raging for weeks. If we lose to Seattle I wouldn't be nearly as upset.

Winning playoff games is incredibly difficult. So much so that I don't think a lot of Packer fans realize how difficult it is. It's damn tough. I'm aware of how tough it is and I'm not one of those that thinks every year should be a Super Bowl win or it was a wasted year. It takes time, it takes building a team, chemistry and a little bit of proverbial magic.

That said, I expect a playoff win. I'll be disappointed with anything less than one playoff win this year. Rodgers is too good, McCarthy is too good and we have too much talent to go one and done. I get on Manning's case a lot because he has a tendency to crumble once the playoffs start. I have to hold Aaron to the same standard.

I also know that it's damn near impossible to beat Seattle at home in big games, so I would understand a loss there. But if we beat the Cowboys and if the Panthers beat the Seahawks, I expect a Super Bowl win. I expect this team not to lose to inferior talent in the playoffs.

As far as the Super Bowl, I will not be able to survive a Super Bowl loss. A Super Bowl loss means, no matter what, that Rodgers would be at least X-1 in Super Bowls. I can't accept that. I can't accept a lost Super Bowl considering we have the best QB in the NFL.

So to answer your question, the only outcome I would be okay with in this year's post season is a loss in Seattle.

once you get to the playoffs it's Super Bowl WIN or bust.

Sure, and if I was a player for the Green Bay Packers, I definitely wouldn't be content with anything but a SB victory. But I'm not, I'm a fan with absolutely 0 control over anything they do. Thus, I don't really need to concern myself with what I trained for.

The problem with so many fans is they feel like they're responsible for holding the team "accountable" for its performance. You're not. Believe me, the owners and executives of teams already put themselves under more pressure than we as fans can put on them, because their salaries and future job prospects depend on winning.

As to the question of the topic, I'll be disappointed if the Packers lose this week as I feel they're the better team, but I'm fairly happy with how the season has gone to this point regardless. If they get to the NFC Championship game, I'll consider this a successful season in terms of their talent vs. on-field success.

I would be happy with less than a SuperBowl if I felt like this team was overachieving and having more success than their true ability. However, I truly feel like this team can be as good as they want to be. Seattle is the only postseason team I could see beating us when we're playing at our best, but even they should be taken care of soundly. But the others? We'll sooner beat our self, or lose to the injury bug.


So yeah, it's Lombardi or bust for me this year.
