Give The Packers Their Props

The Packers are 7-1.   7and 1 people. 

So why are so many of you upset? 

Now some of you are the same complainers that find something to whine about every week. Hell, right after the Packers won the Super Bowl your comments were, “Yeah but they won’t win back to back”.  I know, nothing will make you happy so go ahead and live in misery.

But for the rest of us, here’s the reality; At first, the Packers D was carrying this team while the offense found their stride.  Now, the offense is starting to play well, and the D is slacking a bit. 

But look at it this way, the Packers are 7-1 and still haven’t played their best football. 

The Packers opponents are 30-29-1 and Green Bay has beaten 5 teams who are .500 or better.

Compare that to the Saints whose opponents are 32-38 and have also beaten 5 teams who are .500 or better.

So let's look at the 49ers.  Their opponents records are combined 16-35 and San Fran  has only 2 teams .500 or better under their belt.  Heck, even the Patriots opponents are 14-42 with only 1 team better than 500 on the docket.

So while you may not think the Packers have a legit shot at a Super Bowl, for right now, and in today's reality, you have to give the Packers their props.
