Ok so it comes down to just a few teams left.
I'm not saying who I'm rooting for but.....
You will be very disappointed next Sunday.
Couldn't be more disappointing than this
I've never heard that before
What can I say? The Packers get a lot of opportunities to dance during a game!
Haven't heard it before? We have a young whipper snapper in here!
This came out in the 90s. I was in college in Milwaukee and was subjected to this torture on local radio on a regular basis
Not quite that young! I've never been a radio listener, so that's probably why.
I'm with @JBtheExplorer on this one - even though I live on the other side of the Cheddar Curtain now, I'm Green Bay born and raised. Once a Packer fan, always a Packer fan!
Remember the mid 90s my friends where the road to the Superbowl came through Dallas and each year the Packers had to come down to big D.
It's not quite the Aikman-Smith era anymore. Dallas is led by rookies now. They've had a successful season, but will they be able to handle the pressure of the NFL playoffs? I'm not so sure about that. Their offense has been tough, though, and the Packers defense is has been pretty bad this year. I think that's largely what the game will come down to. The Cowboys offense and the Packers defense. I don't think this game will mirror what we saw in week 6, but having seen my team get four losses in a row, and then seeing them get 7 wins in a row, I have no idea what to expect.
That can't be easy!
We get 2 of our best pass rushers back and one of our best corners. You guys are pretty beat up.
I will say this. Packer fans are far more loyal. Even when you kept coming down here and losing in the 90s I was in college at Marquette and your fans were always friendly and loyal.\
Hell that freak on channel 12 WISN would always do the sports in full Packer body paint every Friday.
Injuries don't really bother me because its true just about every year. 2010 was one of the worst years for injuries and it led them to win the Super Bowl. I have as much confidence in our second and third-stringers as the starters, except for QB.
Loyalty is easy with a team like GB. They're America's team. Most championships, 2nd most total wins, playoffs nearly annually since the early 90s. There's always something to root for.
I give more credit to fans of teams like the Browns and Bills, who rarely make the playoffs and never win Super Bowls. They may have smaller fanbases but no fans are more loyal than that!
Now please. There is only one America's team and it is the Dallas Cowboys.
We were dubbed it for a reason. We are the most popular team with the most fans and the team that's worth the most. Far more than the Packers. We are worth almost double of the Packers.
We have more super bowl wins than the packers more playoff wins and more appearances in playoffs than the Packers so let's not get nuts. And we have only been around half the time and still have more in all of those categories which makes it even more impressive. I tried being cordial here about the fans but you are off the deep end with your America's Team nonsense.
I thought the Patriots were Americas team?
Another cheesehead here backing the Pack. I watched some really poor football played during the 70's and 80's in Milwaukee when the Packers played at County Stadium. As pathetic as they were then we still supported our team. I wish I had been able to afford my mom's season tickets when her health forced her into giving them up. Go Pack go!!!
Let's not get nuts indeed. Let's look at the facts.
1.) The Cowboys do have a much shorter history in american football, while the Packers have a long and storied history in this country. (Point goes to the Packers for America's team)
2.) The Cowboys do have one more championship under the "Super Bowl" name (five total), but the Packers have more total championships (thirteen total). (Point: Packers)
3.) The Cowboys have more Superbowl losses. (Point: Packers)
3.) Both teams have 32 playoff appearances. (tie)
4.) Cowboys have one more playoff win (which will change one way or the other this weekend), but then again, does that matter much when considering the Packers went on to win more championships? (Point: Packers)
5.) The Cowboys are certainly worth more, but I wouldn't consider that a qualification for "America's team". Still, I'll give the Cowboys a point for it. (Point: Cowboys)
6.) The Cowboys are frequently on the top of the list for largest fan base, but it also switches between the Packers and Patriots, too,
...however, both the Patriots and Cowboys almost always top the "America's least favorite team" and "most hated team" lists. (minus 1 point for the Cowboys)
That's 4 points to Packers and 0 to the Cowboys.
That was all for fun, but in reality, the only qualification for America's team is which team has a larger, widespread fan base across the country - which team America likes more - and there is no statistic for that, although it's worth noting that the Cowboys play for one of the largest cities in the country in the second most populated state. The Packers are in the smallest NFL city in a state with an average population, which would suggest that Packer fans are more widespread across the country. (Point: Packers )
No, the Patriots are just the team who's theme is "America's team"
Packers fans are spread accross the world.
It was a lot harder when Chicago had an actual team...
that was said about the Seahawks not too long ago, that being said that Seattle team had a way better D,however the Dallas front line could even make me into a great QB. I think they still have an outside chance of making the super bowl. If Elliott is the real deal, they will start to spoil their fans again.
dear mr admin, can we get an animated gif of the emo eating popcorn, I seeing fighting words.....
