Could there be a better storyline? Well of course...the Colts could be in the hunt, but lets put that aside. Even without the storyline of two number six seeds making the Super Bowl for the first time the Jets and the Packers bring great stories if they can make it to the Super Bowl.
On the Jets side you have the very vocal coach in Rex Ryan. Ryan has made comments about how it has been personal every time Manning and the Colts have defeated his Jets. Then he walks into Indianapolis and wins a game that fell short of nothing but a classic. Then he opens his mouth and calls out the Patriots saying the Jets are going to walk in and beat the Patriots. Well wouldn't you know the Jets left the frozen tundra with a 28-21 victory over the number one seed. Lastly you have a young Quarterback that came into the league having to follow a great season lead by Brett Farve. Now in only his second year and he is leading the Jets on a possible Super Bowl!
The other side of the story has just as much hype with Aaron Rodgers, the Quarterback who had the biggest shoes to fill. Rodgers entered the NFL behind none other then Brett Farve and took over for him in 2008. The fans in Green Bay loved Farve but Rodgers has quickly stolen the hearts of the people in Green Bay. Rodgers had a tough start leading his team to only a 6-10 record but since has lead them to the playoffs two straight season and is poised for a Super Bowl run in only his third season.
What an amazing storyline if the Jets and Packers make it to the Super Bowl. Two young Quarterbacks leading number six seed teams to the big show. Two young Quarterbacks who both played under the great Brett Farve at one point in their young careers. Two young Quarterbacks still eager to play but just as hungry for a Super Bowl ring!
