    Pack gets done by Tennesse

    Well Minnesota finished 1-3 last year in the preseason and they finished 9-7. Green Bay finished 2-3 last preseason and finished 10-6 in the regular season. Trying to paste a label to a team based on preseason performance is futile at best.

    Fan4favre, you should speak to Packmann cause he is the person (and i use that term loosely) brought it up.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Agreed Whackthepack....I'm just supporting the idea that preseason, although important in many intangible ways, judging regular season outcomes on preseason performance is borderline ridiculous.

    Kind of disagreeing/agreeing with all here:

    1) It's preseason
    2) The record matters if your team is 4-0, it doesn't matter if your team is 2-2, and really doesn't matter if they went 0-4. It's all relative.
    3) You look more closely at when the first teams are facing each other, usually the first half scores, at best.
    4) Many players are held out (both Vikes and Pack) in preseason, so its not a true indicator of Week 1. Week1 is the best indicator of Week 1.
    5) It is always fun to watch the team you hate lose and gloat over it.
    Have you ever seen a race of turtles, and they all go the wrong way instead of towards the finish line?

    They had the Hall of Fame Game too last year, lost to the Chiefs. That threw me off too at first...thought it was just another case of Packer fan "special counting"
