    1973-1981 no playoffs
    1982 Won First Round (Cardinals) lost Second Round (Cowboys)
    1984-1992 no playoffs


    What team are you referring to?
    Packers

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Bay_Packers_statistics

    1982 isn't even worth mentioning. That was a strike year when the scabs played & just about everyone went to the playoffs.

    GB's record that year was 5-3-1, so take that for what it's worth.

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

    only to packers fans :wink: everyone elese called it the 22year drought.




    ps, i'm glad you pointed this out, now i can rub it in the face of my stupid friend who likes the packers
    They refer to it as the 30 year drought because it was 28 years (30 years rounded off) between suberbowl appearances, with only 3 other playoff appearances during that time.

    In 1972, they lost in the 1st playoff game.

    In 1982 they won the 1st game, but lost the next one. Incidently that was a strike year when the scabs played & just about everyone went to the playoffs that year. GB record that year was 5-3-1, so take that with a grain of salt.

    In 1994 they won the wildcard game, but lost the next one.

    Besides, 30 between superbowl appearances sounds better than 22 years between playoff games, But I'd bring up both.

    i guess that makes sense, i'll have to find another thing to shove in dumb packer fans faces, like the 22year playoff drought, everything always works out for the yogimeister
