How Far You Get With One Piece Of The Puzzle Missing

If you've got an elite quarterback, outstanding receiving corps, a fast and aggressive defense, but only a mediocre offensive line, how far do you get?  You get a wild card slot and you take the defending conference champions to overtime after your early blunders spot them two touchdowns, that's how far.  You get super high-scoring games but uncertain-until-the-end outcomes.  The deeply interesting and heart-wrenching season of the 2009 Green Bay Packers will end with this line:  "A. Rodgers sacked by M. Adams. A. Rodgers fumbled. K. Dansby recovered fumble and returned for 17 yards."  Although disappointing, it seems fitting.

I hope you took the over, Readers.
