This is all pretty neat, but if they don't beat the Bears, it won't matter one hill o' beans... That is all.

Agreed. I only care about the numbers if they win, then it's nice to look at how dominating they have been. But as they say, past performance is no guarantee of future performance, but that's all you can go by.

I don't think this Packers team cares about anything, numbers, accolades, trash talking, even the rivalry, besides playing strong for 60 minutes, winning the conference, then preparing hard, playing strong for 60 minutes, and winning the Super Bowl.

A far cry from the team who were unprepared against TB a year ago, huh?

Actually, putting together the playoffs last year, and in 07, I think MM becomes a much better coach in the playoffs. He's quickly able to recognize what's working and what's not, sticking to it, he's imaginative, he exploits mismatches to the maximum, and he keeps his players focused throughout.

Aside from the numbers, I actually started to have confidence in the offense being able to move the ball consistently.
Defense I always had confidence in. ST, still not so much.

For those of you who are now boycotting PFT, you'll want to read at least one more post by Mr. Florio ......

Trying to save face now that it has escalated. Might be fueled by possible threat of losing NBC endorsement, due to huge negative publicity.

I stopped reading his crap after the NBC merge.

Anyone hear #12's interview in the Jungle this morning? It was epic. EPIC FAIL! Dude called in 3 times and his I-phone kept going out. Really sucked, it was in hour #3 and I waited around to hear it (at least I was getting paid to do so, lol)... never happened. Rome still gave him the charma though, so we're good there.

BTW Space ghost: "(.628, 27-16), one tenth of a percentage point better than the Pittsburgh Steelers (.627, 32-19)."

That's actually one thousandth of a percentage point better. Still better though. Is that as bad as the spelling nit-pickers?

dennis eckersley's picture

It's might be worse, because you're actually incorrect. He wrote that it was a tenth of a winning percentage point better....... .628 is not written as a percent, it's written as a decimal, and it is equal to 62.8%........ and it's a tenth of a percentage point better than 62.7%

FITZCORE1252's picture

LOL. Very true. My apologies space ghost. Ha, that's what I get for trying to be a smart ass.

BTW, I saw you pitch at County Stadium. The "Bash Brothers" went back-to-back.

Amazing ..... I, too, was at that game ..... July, 1987 ..... You must have been the dude sitting a couple rows below me (you had a hat on) ..... You kept talking about how Molitor was leading the league in batting at 34.2% ..... Small world.

Yeah, I was all excited to listen to it on the way to work and at&t blew it. Jim Rome also blows so I changed the station right after.

Two more wins this year would do it for me
