    one thing i never realized

    i never realized the packers never made the postseason from 1972 to 1994! during that time the vikings flourished, making the postseason 13 times in those 22 years. sure the vikings may not have a super bowl, but at least they weren't losers for 22 straight years following vince lombardi's reign. then favre comes along and beats a second rate patriots team to make the cheesedicks happy again. while the vikings had to face teams like the dolphins, who just came off a 17-0 season, the steelers, who had a team full of hall of famers, and the raiders, who were coached by the nfl's all time winningist coach in john madden. the only good super bowl team green bay played was denver, and they lost!

    i just had to make a rant out of this

    Nice rant. I made a bunch of $ of the Packers during their Forrest Greg years when I was a student there. The problem is that you cannot have a rational conversation with most Packer fans. That's why we love them.

    That's why that era is referred to as the 30 year drought.

    Anybodu could've told you that they sucked royal balls back then. :lol:

    And they are heading that way again, starting with the 29 balls Brett had picked while his cranium was crammed up his ass.

    I can't imagine my favorite team in any sport missing the post season 22 years in a row! At some point you kind of have to give up.
