This one goes out to Green Bay...say it with me Packer fans...1-7. That's right, the Green Bay Packers, the perennial powerhouse of the NFC north and yearly contender for the Super Bowl, have one win. It's not even a good win, it was over the Saints. Cementing their downward spiral was yesterday's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lambeau Field.
Think about that for a second...the frozen tundra has always been a source of power for the packers...You weren't going to beat Green Bay at home...It just wasn't done. However, looking back on the 2004 season and this season, the Pack are 5-7 in their last 12 home games. Good teams win at home. Good teams don't let the Tennessee Titans beat them 48-27 on their own field.
I know many of you who are drinking the green and gold Kool-Aid are going to write me saying, "but look how close they've been when they lose" and "if we just make one more play a game we'd be 5-3." Good teams find a way to make plays and good teams find a way to win close games.
If you haven't picked up on it yet, The Green Bay Packers are Not a good team.
So kick back Packer Backers, grab a miller, and pull your cheese hats over your eyes...I'm going to give you a peek into the future...
