The first seven weeks of the 2011 NFL regular season have been filled with plenty of excitement, as well as disappointment. Teams, players and coaches have all had their highs and lows, but it's a matter of how well each has built off the momentum and learned from their mistakes.
The Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl last year, but they barely made it into the postseason after beating the Chicago Bears in Week 17 to earn a Wild Card spot. The Packers got hot at the right time, and continued to ride that streak.
Other teams, however, may be hot at one point, but then lose that fire and never seem to gain it back. At that point, their season may end sooner than hoped for.
