Rodgers tells sold out Lambeau crowd the Packers will repeat

PackersLambeau

It’s not out of the ordinary to hear a recently crowned champion tell adoring fans that they are going to repeat.

It is out of the ordinary for more than 56,000 people to brave temperatures estimated at 15 degrees below zero wind chill on a school day to cheer on their heroes in a sold out NFL stadium.

“I’ll tell you what, Green Bay,” Aaron Rodgers said Tuesday to a frozen Lambeau Field crowd Tuesday.   “We’re going to be right back here doing this exact same thing [next year].”

The support the Packers got on Tuesday is unique, like Green Bay’s relationship with its fans in general.   35,000 people greeted the Packers when they arrived home,  just to watch the Packers’ motorcade go by.

    Greatest franchise in all of sports!

    This, from the dude who has yet to win his own division. You’ll have to play a stronger schedule next year, which means playing Brady, Manning, and probably Phil Rivers. Better start working on it now.

    What will Packer fan do next season when the Pack lose in the 1st round?

  4. picksix401 says: Feb 8, 2011 6:37 PM

    what kind of spelling is this? absolutely horrible.. he didn’t send the crowd a text message

  5. secgreatness says: Feb 8, 2011 6:37 PM

    What else do they have to do on a Tuesday in Greenbay?

    FIRST

  6. FoozieGrooler says: Feb 8, 2011 6:37 PM

    The odds are against that happening.
    Over the last ten years, the NFC has sent a different team to the SB every year, with no repeats.
    The AFC has sent only 4 teams, the Patriots 4 times, Steelers 3 times, Ravens twice, and I can’t even remember who the other one was.
    Next year, if there is one, will likely be more of the same.

  7. bigbluefan1 says: Feb 8, 2011 6:38 PM

    Nice idea but doubt it to do it again the stars all have to be lined in your favor and rare that can happen twice in a row.

    56,ooo chuds outside in -15 degrees = WI’s welfare crowd

    School gets out early= Education has always been ignored in WI

    Rodgers says repeat next year = John Jolly was in charge of the hot chocolate

  9. revelationary says: Feb 8, 2011 6:41 PM

    “I’ll tell u what, Green Bay”

    Wow, NFL players are even SPEAKING in text language now? Truly, we have reached a new low.

  10. yankee343anna says: Feb 8, 2011 6:42 PM

    over the Patriots dead body.. maybe. Jus’ sayin!

  11. gbpackersfan12 says: Feb 8, 2011 6:42 PM

    One of a kind experience…. the tailgate parties were in full force. I swear it was a game day, just better!

    Nicely done Packer Fans and Organization. Today, I’m as proud to be a fan as I’ve ever been.

    Thanks for amazing weekend.

  12. sdboltaction says: Feb 8, 2011 6:44 PM

    That’s what they allllllll say.

  13. sterilizecromartie says: Feb 8, 2011 6:46 PM

    I knew people could use the letter “u” in texts or tweets, but I didn’t think someone actually speak it.

    You sure he didn’t also say “We r going 2 b bac here doing this thng nxt yr”?

  14. bluefan204 says: Feb 8, 2011 6:46 PM

    Thats just stupid. Nothing like making the bullseye bigger than it already will be

  15. brianforster says: Feb 8, 2011 6:47 PM

    I remember reading an article on ESPN a few years back describing the typical gameday atmosphere for all 32 teams, ranking the fan experience, etc. Green Bay was #1 and the description of the town/stadium and how the fans act on gameday just seemed amazing. I would love to be from GB and cheer for the Pack but I’m one of those rare breeds these days who cheers for a team with geographic significance. Go figure.

  16. lov3likerockets says: Feb 8, 2011 6:48 PM

    Apparently when Rodgers speaks he somehow incorrectly uses the wrong “two” also.

  17. tperk84 says: Feb 8, 2011 6:48 PM

    Nice spelling Rosenthal.

  18. assnfootball says: Feb 8, 2011 6:49 PM

    Wait, the fans paid to get in? I’d think something like that would be free.

  19. giablommi says: Feb 8, 2011 6:49 PM

    “”I’ll tell u what, Green Bay,” Aaron Rodgers said ^^^^^
    I’m pretty sure that he said “I’ll tell YOU what”.

    That’s disgraceful, even by PFT’s sloppy standards.

  20. supashug says: Feb 8, 2011 6:50 PM

    can’t debate that statement, seems very possible

  21. giablommi says: Feb 8, 2011 6:50 PM

    …and since when do they have guys named “Kareem” in Green Bay, WI anyway?

  22. daryllh says: Feb 8, 2011 6:52 PM

    How does 56000 people mean a sell out for a stadium that holds 73000? That’s old school, soviet style propaganda.

  23. hobartbaker says: Feb 8, 2011 6:53 PM

    They let the kids out of school early in Green Bay. When they turn 14.

  24. ghoul11 says: Feb 8, 2011 6:56 PM

    BELT!!! Eat it viking fans. Come back when you have 4 of them!

  25. cincinnasti says: Feb 8, 2011 6:56 PM

    If the Bengals ever tried that after winning the Super Bowl the fans would probably throw bottles at the feet of Mike Brown.

    ^^^^^^
    First, I’m sure taking home a Super Bowl championship trumps winning the division (just ask the Jest, they’ll tell ya). Lame argument.

    Second, since they didn’t win the division, they’ll play a second place schedule, same as they did this year. And since they don’t play in the AFC, I can pretty much guarantee they won’t play Brady, Manning and Rivers.

    A quick check of next years opponents reveals 6 games against NFC North teams, home games against New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Arizona, Denver and Oakland and road games at
    Atlanta, Carolina, Washington, Kansas City and San Diego. Not exactly the toughest schedule ever assembled.

    Right bigbluefan1 – the stars all aligned for the Packers to win this year. Maybe your team will do it next year – WITH 15 players on IR!!! Sure aligned well for the Pack.

    6 starters, and at least 3 KEY reserves missed significant portions of the season. This team will be better in 2011 – repeat isn’t such a stretch.

  30. sufferingbirdsfan says: Feb 8, 2011 7:03 PM

    Gotta admit to being a little jealous. I’ll bet no one in that crowd even felt the cold. Hopefully before I die I’ll be freezing my ass off watching an Eagle’s parade. It’s only been 50 years since the last one…

  31. sacram3ntal says: Feb 8, 2011 7:06 PM

    Green Bay Packers 2011 opponents:

    Home:
    Chicago Bears
    Denver Broncos
    Detroit Lions
    Minnesota Vikings
    New Orleans Saints
    Oakland Raiders
    St. Louis Rams
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    Away:
    Atlanta Falcons
    Carolina Panthers
    Chicago Bears
    Detroit Lions
    Kansas City Chiefs
    Minnesota Vikings
    New York Giants
    San Diego Chargers

    GB won the title this year with their backups.

    They got this.

  32. jarrman46 says: Feb 8, 2011 7:07 PM

    Actually the Packers get an easier schedule next year. No Patriots No Jets No Eagles

    This is the teams they play
    Vikings 2 wins
    Bears 2 more wins
    Lions 2 more wins
    Rams 1 win
    Giants 1 win
    Raiders 1 win
    Broncos 1 win
    Chiefs 1 win
    Panthers 1 win
    Buccs and Saints at Green Bay
    Chargers and Falcons on road

    Sure sounds brutal to me

    The fact is the Packers played a brutal schedule this year (at Pats at Jets at Philly twice at Atlanta twice at Chicago twice andfinally Pittsburgh)

  33. jarrman46 says: Feb 8, 2011 7:10 PM

    Dont listen to the guy who cant even name the teams that went to the Super Bowl. Last I checked Ravens have only been to one Super Bowl. And the teams you cant seem to remember are the Raiders and Colts twice. Do your homework before you hit that submit button.

  34. mataug says: Feb 8, 2011 7:13 PM

    @richmondhokie
    The Packers are in the NFC. They can play teams from 2 different AFC divisions at the maximum(1 division in regular season and AFC champion in regular season). So how the hell will Rodgers and the Packers go against Brady, Manning and Rivers when they play in the AFC East, South and West respectively ?

    That sir is a FAIL.

  35. mataug says: Feb 8, 2011 7:14 PM

    “This, from the dude who has yet to win his own division. You’ll have to play a stronger schedule next year, which means playing Brady, Manning, and probably Phil Rivers. Better start working on it now.”

    Wow this post is dumb! So Rodgers and the Packers needed to win their final two regular season games to make the playoffs, they went on the road to knock off the #3, #1, and #2 seeds in the NFC and then knocked off the #2 seed in the AFC in the Super Bowl, but none of that matters because he didn’t win the division? Incredible! I can’t tell from your screen name, but you have to be a Viking fan, right? Only Viking fans place that much emphasis on a division title.

    Their schedule won’t be affected by winning the Super Bowl because that’s determined by regular season record. They placed second, they get the second place schedule. They also won’t face Brady or P. Manning unless the Colts or Pats meet them in the Super Bowl. Yes, they’ll face some good quarterbacks, but guess what, they faced good quarterbacks this year and won the “effing” Super Bowl.

    Also, those 15 guys the Packers had on IR, yeah, they’ll be getting some of them back.

  39. cobaltdriver says: Feb 8, 2011 7:20 PM

    Bitter bitter bitter bitter Viking fans..you must not have anything better to do either than get on this board and bitch,cry piss and moan about the packers, Wisconsin, Katrina,NFL conspiracies,fixed games..boohoo whine whine ! Don’t you have a Star Trek convention or an ice fishing tournament to go to instead of picking on your mirror image state with the better football team and nicer people?

  40. smoothjimmyapollo says: Feb 8, 2011 7:22 PM

    “The odds are against that happening.
    Over the last ten years, the NFC has sent a different team to the SB every year, with no repeats.”

    The odds are against a 6 seed winning the Super Bowl were against them too, but that happened.

  41. emoney826 says: Feb 8, 2011 7:23 PM

    Richmondhokie,

    Correction. We don’t play manning or Brady next year. Rivers we do, and will crush them. You AFC homers once said we wouldn’t be a top 5 team in the AFC if we played in it, yet we dominated 3 quarters of the super bowl against the best you had to offer. The tides are once again turning back to the NFC dominance. Giants, Saints, and now the Packers have all won in recent years. I guess you should be proud that the steelers were able to beat teams like the seahawks and cardinals. Congrats. You all secretly know that the packers are here to stay. Our reserves were able to dominate you. What’s that say about your “supposed” best?

  42. emoney826 says: Feb 8, 2011 7:26 PM

    And by the way, the schedule next year is easier than this years was. AFC West and NFC South with a second place schedule. Easier than the NFC East and AFC East was this year. Chew on that you jealous haters.

  43. philtration says: Feb 8, 2011 7:27 PM

    Sold out?
    You mean they charged people to see this?

    I guess it was too early for Applebee’s

  44. thirdngoal says: Feb 8, 2011 7:28 PM

    NICE……….we already have 3 champs for the 2011 season. Media says Cowboys, New York says their Jets and now the Packers say they will win. Last I checked, we didnt even know if we are going to play due to a CBA. More paper champs…………….

  45. bordner says: Feb 8, 2011 7:29 PM

    I don’t recognize all of the names that have posted negative replies to this so far, but I’m guessing that some of them are the same clowns that have been guaranteeing Packer losses for the last 6 weeks.

    Not a lot of credibility left in your comments, boys.

  46. giablommi says: Feb 8, 2011 7:30 PM

    What will Packer fan do next season when the Pack lose in the 1st round?
    ^^^^^
    What will you do when the Steelers are 5-11?

    Super Bowl hangover usually applies to teams that lose the Bowl, but Pittsburgh didn’t make the playoffs in ’06 and sure as hell didn’t make the playoffs last year (though they did “raise hell” losing to some of the league’s worst teams in December).

    Moron.

  47. packerbeerman says: Feb 8, 2011 7:30 PM

    That’s what they all say…NOBODY repeats especially NFC….You can’t even make the playoffs with 15 players on IR and another starter suspended for the season….It’d be impossible to win the Superbowl without Charles Woodson AND Double D for the 2nd Half….UNLESS YOU’RE THE GREEN BAY PACKERS!!!!

  48. idgafkurt says: Feb 8, 2011 7:38 PM

    REPEAT!

    richmondhokie – a harder schedule? Do watch football? Packers played 10 of 19 games this year against teams that made the playoffs. They ended up 7-3 in those games. Best part, they played 9 out of 10 of those games on the road! Doesn’t matter who they play or where, they are hands down the best team in the league and won’t be losing any core players. 2nd youngest team in the league, best QB in the league, best D in the league and we get Finley and Grant back…look out! Dyansty??????

  49. 8man says: Feb 8, 2011 7:39 PM

    Uhh…it’s hockey season now….

    And baseball season in a month……

  50. richmondhokie says: Feb 8, 2011 7:39 PM

    My point, for those who can’t think logically, is this: If Rodgers can’t win his division once in 3 years, what makes him think he can win a Super Bowl twice in 2 years? The odds of that happening are astronomical.

    I am a Pack fan, not an AFC homer. Just keepin’ it real.

  51. db105 says: Feb 8, 2011 7:40 PM

    Packers just like the Jets were wild card teams that barely made the playoffs. These teams are more likely to miss the playoffs than to win a Super Bowl. Interesting how teams can get overvalued based on a few games. Do most of you people buy stocks based a on a few days performance?

  52. giablommi says: Feb 8, 2011 7:42 PM

    “Hopefully before I die I’ll be freezing my ass off watching an Eagle’s parade. It’s only been 50 years since the last one…”
    ^^^^^
    I froze my ass off watching the Patriots parade back in ’01, caught a glimpse of Tedy Bruschi and Troy Brown for about a split second, couldn’t see anything else, and that was it. It was the worst, and I never had the urge to go to another Pats, Sox or Celtics parade (or the Phillies either, and I was a half mile from the parade route down Broad St)

    So don’t feel too bad. But let’s be honest, you don’t need to worry about freezing your ass off at an Eagles parade…not because they won’t ever win it, but because they’d just postpone it to Tuesday (or March), just sayin’…

  53. jc1958coo says: Feb 8, 2011 7:43 PM

    Big deal, let Rodgers pump up the crowd and be happy. They came out in below zero weather for cripes sake. It sucks, but I just can’t trash a single thing about what Rodgers said or how the cheesers celebrate — they deserve the right to act like delerious dopes.

    3)Your junior prom had a daycare.

    also, to clarify — no, they didn’t charge admission. When they say “sold out” it means they gave away all the free tickets and had to turn some people away. It wasn’t a “full capacity” crowd because they weren’t able to clear every seat of the snow.

  59. greenbaysucks says: Feb 8, 2011 7:53 PM

    oh please…School day in Green Bay? That means the kids were at the plant huffing fumes to become more retarded than they already are.

    Schedule will be tougher next year, and yes, maybe win the division to start. Even if they won the super bowl, who cares, I always know in my heart that Green Bay sucks.

  60. herokravon says: Feb 8, 2011 7:53 PM

    Try to win the division next year first. Can’t take away their accomplishment, but without the collapses by Giants and Bucs, they don’t make the playoffs.

    Real talk.

  61. firegoodell says: Feb 8, 2011 7:58 PM

    1 – Congrats to the Packers on winning
    2 – ARod should STFU and enjoy it
    3 – all involved and all reading should keep in mind that if the Giants don’t blow a HUUUUGE lead to the eagles the packers don’t even make the playoffs
    4 – if he wants to give me the rest of the NFL against the packers repeating as champs I will take him up on that…because…as someone mentioned above
    5 – 10 different teams have represented the NFC over the last 10 years, while the AFC on the other hand has had 4 teams….in the last 10 years (The steelers 3 times, the colts 2 times, the pats 4 times, and it was the raiders (1 time) not the Ravens – that was 11 years ago

  62. baboushka says: Feb 8, 2011 7:59 PM

    What was Rodgers supposed to say. “hang with us my fellow Cheeseheads. We are going to suck big time next year. But we’ll be back in 2013 if the world is still around”. He said what a Champion should say. “We will repeat as Champions”. And the test will be brutal beyond anything they imagine right now. But right now they have a 50/50 shot to do it just like every single team in the NFL.

  63. ny82jy says: Feb 8, 2011 8:01 PM

    Teams don’t repeat anymore in the NFL. They usually have a hard enough time making the playoffs the following year. It’s too hard too do with the draft and free agency.

  64. stellarperformance says: Feb 8, 2011 8:03 PM

    To all of the Packer-haters out there, let me quote Shaq……..”How does our *ss taste?”

    That’s assuming you know how tough the teams they play are going to be in 2011, which you don’t. Every Super Bowl team winners’ fans always have a really short memory about the parity that exists in the NFL and that any team, any year, can rise up and overcome. The Packers were that team this year, lest you so soon forget.

  73. derrtony says: Feb 8, 2011 8:27 PM

    They did charge a $5 admission fee. From what I was told, when I cought mine was that it was going to the local Boys/ Girls club in Green Bay. SCALPERS were charging up to $120. I bet they are not donating it to the Boys & Girls Club. Simply amazing today.
    Hey Viking fan, if you turned up the tint and turned down the contrast on your 14″ Zenith, you can pretend that it was your team that was having the party. But then again you still have a hole in your roof and would have to throw that party at the place where football matters in town TCF Stadium. Still really bad football but at least the city is willing to pay for it. Enjoy LA you cheap bastards….

    Hey Packer Fans…. Funny fact, did you know that the University of Minnesota’s football stadium was partially funded by Dairy Queen? Boy did they miss the boat on naming rights potential if they would have funded the Vikings stadium instead. They could be called the Minnesota Buster Bars or the Minnesota Peanut Parfait at Dairy Queen Stadium… Very funny….. Dairy Queen did scoop $2.5 million to the Gopher Stadium.

  77. packerbeerman says: Feb 8, 2011 8:36 PM

    Minnesconsin: YOu’re wrong they did charge $5 a ticket. the reason there were empty seats is that ticketagents bought a bunch of tickets and sold them for $120.

  78. deebo92 says: Feb 8, 2011 8:37 PM

    If no one serious gets injuries, I dont see why not. I thought the Saints were gonna make it back too though. It’s tough defending that SB crown, every body wants a slice.

    I thought that the Jets and Ravens were the most arrogant and loud mouthed teams in the league.

    You’d think they’d won by 30 points. I tend to agree with the comments on the topic: “Were the Packers really that good or was it that the Steelers were that bad”?

    21 points off of turnovers. C’mon Nancy, the Steelers played their worst game since they lost to the Pats.

    The Packer backers weren’t that confident going into the stadium but were tres obnoxious going out.

  81. sterilizecromartie says: Feb 8, 2011 8:48 PM

    He’s probably right. The Packers could sleepwalk to an NFC North crown next year. And Rodgers is unstoppable in the playoffs.

    Try to win the division next year first. Can’t take away their accomplishment, but without the collapses by Giants and Bucs, they don’t make the playoffs.

    Real talk.

    =================================

    OR

    Just beat the red hot Eagles that took care of the Gents, knock off the #1 Seed Falcons, and take care of our real rival–the Bears!

    SUPER BOWL CHAMPS!!!!

    Considering that a third string Bears QB nearly kept GB out of the Superbowl I’d keep the repeat talk at a minimum.

    Green Bay the city thats really a town. The most cliquish, backwater, place in the universe. Where else would you get 50,000 people to spend $5.00 each to sit in the -15 degree wind chill cold to watch a bunch of millionaires hoist a trophy. They even let their kids out of school for this. Green Bay = Racine, Wisconsin just no football team. Go Bears!

  86. gbfan says: Feb 8, 2011 8:57 PM

    Love all the Packer hate after we just won the Super Bowl. This team is built to win for years to come. Our QB that you’re all ripping on? He just threw for over 300 yds and 3 TDs against the “best defense in the NFL” in the biggest game of his life. We are the ones that looked like we’ve been there before. Best franchise in professional sports and you all know it. There is a reason why Lambeau Field is consistently ranked as the #1 sporting venue in America. It might not have cost $1 billion dollars to build like one we just toasted the Steelers in, but there is no other place I’d rather spend my Sunday afternoon.

    MANS GAME!

  87. dwhitehurst says: Feb 8, 2011 9:00 PM

    Hmmm……

    Let’s not be too much a homer just yet. Even within our division, the Bears will play us tough, and I think Detroit will be even tougher next year (especially if they pick up DT Haynesworth—imagine Suh and him together?! Yikes.) Granted, the Vikes will be two easy wins—games in which we can rest our starters.

    Next year’s division standings will go something like this
    Packers: 12-4
    Bears: 10-6
    Lions: 10-6
    *Vikings: 3-13

    *As Pervy confessed to me, even the Vikings themselves do not know if they’ll be moving to LA or not, as the Minneapolis Star Tribune’s Sid Hartmann just reported on Feb. 5th in his column.

    This, from the dude who has yet to win his own division. You’ll have to play a stronger schedule next year, which means playing Brady, Manning, and probably Phil Rivers. Better start working on it now.
    ________________

    When you’re on top there’s envy.

    True, Rodgers has yet to win the division. All he did this year was beat the team that won the division twice and win a Super Bowl.

    Not the mention beat the Eagles in Philly (twice), beat the Falcons in ATL (almost twice), and beat the best team in the AFC.

    In addition, the team sans Rodgers almost beat Brady and NE in NE!

    Hate all you want. The Packers and Aaron Rodgers are here to stay.

  89. jarrman46 says: Feb 8, 2011 9:13 PM

    Yes it is true that you cant know which teams will be good next year. But you do know that if you have an elite qb you will most likely have success. Far as I know there are only 3 elite NFC qbs(Rodgers Vick and Brees). Odds are highly likely that all three of these teams will be good next year. Then you have Matt Ryan and J Freeman who are unproven talents so far but I will include them in the mix. Eli is a turnover machine Romo sucks Cutler isnt a leader. Mcnabb is finished Stafford cant play more than 3 games. Hassleback is out in Seattle. Vikings Cardinals Panthers and 49ers dont even have there qbs on there rosters yet.
    It looks like a 3 team race in the NFC

  90. tooz56 says: Feb 8, 2011 9:29 PM

    Racine has/had one of the top semi-pro teams in the country a few years back.

    I guess their isn’t much to do in Green Bay. Congrats to the Packers and their fans. As a lifelong Raiders fan, it still burns my ass that crazy Al Davis chose CB Fabian Washington with the pick BEFORE GB took Aaron Rodgers, SUPERBOWL MVP. Great job Al !

    come on ….everyone who wins says the same thing….pretty sure favre and the boys said the same thing back in 96…..doesnt matter right now……this was a special championship. to win on the road against 3 very tough teams and an extremely tough steelers D with a crap ton of guys on IR. Come on haters….just let us enjoy it for a bit without talkin smack. and PercyHarvin………arent you from Minn? you really gonna lay the hillbilly card?

    People on BBs like this who bitch, moan and complain and act as though someone has killed their dog are, well, sadly amusing.

    For heaven’s sake it’s a bunch of fans having fun. Do they have the team to repeat? absolutely. Will they? Those are some long odds to be sure in the era of free agency. But to the very few children here who act so offended … oh lighten up. You’d say the same thing if it were your team.

  93. jjclark28 says: Feb 8, 2011 9:41 PM

    Love the haters pointing out Rodgers hasn’t won a division title (yet has won a conference title) and don’t bother acknowledging that he won the SB regardless.

    Course, that attitude probably comes from the state to our west. The testatment to the Packer’s owning the NFC North is this

    1. When Lovie joined Chicago, his highest priority? Beat GB. Any other new coach on any other team would say “Winning a SB is our highest priority”

    2. The state to our west that shall not be named putting more value on division titles…their highest honor they think any team can hold though is # of Super Bowls lost (in which they are second to NO ONE – though they share that crowning achievement w/ Buffalo).

  96. toolkien says: Feb 8, 2011 9:48 PM

    21 points off of turnovers. C’mon Nancy, the Steelers played their worst game since they lost to the Pats.

    ————————————–
    I hate to break it to you, but what you saw wasn’t the Packers A game either.

    I can only hope that the Packer’s O reverts to its 2009 level after the injured come back, and coupled with the best D in the league the Packers just might be better than 1996.

  97. theoriginalcaptainmarvel says: Feb 8, 2011 9:53 PM

    NFC North prediction for next year:

    Vikings: 11-5
    Packers: 9-7
    Bears: 8-8
    Lions: 6-10

    I see the Packers slipping a little, provided the NFL is fair and gives them a schedule like the Vikings got. Same goes for the Bears. Vice-versa for the Vikings. And the Lions are the Lions.

  98. jarrman46 says: Feb 8, 2011 9:56 PM

    All the fools who keep saying that if this and that hapened thePackers wouldnt have made the playoffs. Well it did NFL history has been written for the 2011 season. It says GB Packers WORLD |CHAMPS.
    Lots of ifs and maybes in NFL history
    Scott Norwood should have made that feild goal
    Brady did fumble that ball
    Kevin Dyson Should have scored
    Dwight Clark shouldnt have caught that ball
    No way Favre throws another int in NFC championship

    But they didnt. History doesnt cars about the ifs and maybes.

    Why can’t people let them enjoy their victory? Maybe because your team can’t win! They just beat my “Steelers” and I don’t have an ounce of animosity towards them or their celebration. I can say from experience that it’s a hell of a good time. Enjoy Packer fans!

  102. 3yrsnfl says: Feb 8, 2011 10:03 PM

    That schedule looks do-able. Looks like about 12-13 wins. Every team has at least on clunker during the year, even the good teams. I think it has been about who is hot. The Jets were 9-2 and looked real good. Then the Patriots were riding high. The Pack had the talent and kept Rogers on the field and they made their run.

    Luck AND injuries always play a part. If they play 18 games, there will be more clunkers. And… there will be more of a swing in the power rankings throughout the year. Teams may look totally different from opening day to week 19.

  103. 49erman says: Feb 8, 2011 10:09 PM

    richmondhokie:

    You really are clueless, aren’t you? Pack didn’t win the division? Who cares if they did not win the division!!???

    The bottom line is they made it into the playoffs as the 6th seed, went ON THE ROAD 3 straight weeks to make it to the Super Bowl and then defeat a great Pittsburgh Steelers team to take home the trophy.

    The Pack was the first 6 seed from the NFC to win the Super Bowl and joined the 2005 Steelers as the only 6 seed to win it all.

    It doesn’t matter how you win the Super Bowl, you just go and do it!!

  104. minnesconsin says: Feb 8, 2011 10:11 PM

    i have to chuckle at people who use “21 points off turnovers” as proof that the packers somehow got lucky that the steelers weren’t at their best. steers fan in particular should be familiar with this style of defense — they actively work to create turnovers, it’s part of the game, and it’s as much, if not more, a strength of the Packers as it is a weakness in their opponents.

    Howard Green hit Big Ben on the first pic. Is that the Big Ben playing poorly, or is it a nice play by 95? Without that hit, maybe it’s a bomb TD to Wallace? And how many steelers did Collins beat on his way to the end zone? Was that the steelers sucking, or Collins with a great play?

    Jarret Bush’s pic — a bad throw, or a great aggressive play by Bush?

    Mendenhall’s fumble — a butterfingers cough-up, or a bigtime sandwich hit by Pickett and Matthews?

  105. xlvbonanzai says: Feb 8, 2011 10:17 PM

    Wow, what a bunch of haters on this site!

    The Packers win a SB and people are ripping the fans for being blue collar workers, the players for being proud and trying to analyze the trends of the past SB teams to debunk a repeat.

    If you guys are so good at predictions I would assume you would be rolling in Vegas cash instead of crying like diaper stained babies that the PACKERS WON DESPITE ALL ODDS AND WILL BE BETTER NEXT YEAR.

    All the haters know in their black hearts at 27 years old and with the nucleus of players signed the Packers are posed for a repeat more than any team since the early 90′s cowboys.

    Building through the draft and signing your developing players is not a novel concept, but one many teams do not have the balls to execute.

    Root for your losing teams with “win today and sacrifice tomorrow” strategies…until then you can continue to waste your time reading about the Packers.

    For all the fans that are respectful and actually understand a hot read or a zone blitz – good luck. For the rest of you….Enjoy your pathetic envious lives.

    Losers!

  106. 14fairways says: Feb 8, 2011 10:19 PM

    Great win for the Packers and their fans.

    I heard 400 Packer fans from up near the UP were not allowed in the stadium because the seats were frozen.

    I understand Green Bay offered them tickets to the out-of-state Super Bowl winner’s parade next year

  107. 85istheman says: Feb 8, 2011 10:26 PM

    To All Idiots:

    The Packers didn’t “get lucky” when the Eagles beat the Giants as you would have everyone believe. If the Giants would have won that game instead, the Packers would then have gone to the playoffs over the Eagles (they would have finished 9-7).

    Even if the Eagles would have beaten the Vikings or the Cowboys, the Packers would have edged them out on the tiebreaker because they beat them head-to-head.

    You make your own luck, and the Pack did just that.

    Thanks stlrgurl65, I took my two youngest kids for a two hour drive to a very cold Lambeau today and we did enjoy it. I was very glad the Steelers made it to Dallas, even though I feared them more than the Jets. It would have been easier to take had the Packers lost. I just respect Pittsburg and the Steelers very much. Beating them is meaningful in the best way, as they are the long-time class of the AFC.

  112. thereisnoiinteam says: Feb 8, 2011 10:43 PM

    Someone posted that repeats don’t happen due to the draft and free agency.

    Hard to break it to ya, but the Packers have 69 players signed already on their roster. Even if they lost all of their free agents (Jenkins, Crosby, Jackson, Jones, etc.), they are the 2nd youngest team in the league, they will still be the deepest team in the league with clearly one of the 2 best QB’s in the league (I would argue the best), a GM who has proven he can find talent out of every teams rejects, plus they have 8 draft picks as of now, and one of the league’s best free agent CB’s Nnamdi Asomugha has said he would like to play for the Packers (or Jets). Their coaches are pretty good too.

    This team is built to win a lot of games for many years to come. It is NOT premature to predict continued greatness for this team based on all of those factors.

    You can mention all you want how the last 10 NFC champs were all different teams, yet it still won’t be relevant. None of those previous teams were this team. That’s like saying the Packers haven’t won in Philadelphia since 1962…until 2011 when they beat them.

    Repeat chances are better than ANY team since the Patriots almost a decade ago.

    They ended up 8-8!

    Don’t get carried away with the schedule next year, Cheeseheads. It will not be NEARLY as easy of a schedule as you think. Every team on your schedule, with the exception of a few, will probably be much better next year.

  115. canadianvikingfaniii says: Feb 8, 2011 10:57 PM

    Congrats on another title, Rodgers as per usually played lights out. He probably deserved it with all the Favre talk and comparisons made when Favre left GB. I hate the Packers but I know when to give props and respect to guys, as much as I hate him lighting up the Vike secondary he is pretty fun to watch against other teams.

    Just 2 things though, the few of you have to stop with the “B squad” stuff. It shouldn’t matter where you are situated on the depth chart, you are expected to pick up the slack hense the reason you are on the team.

    The other thing, every season is a new season just look at the Vikings last year to this year..

    Yes, the Packers are the champs this year. And as the champs, next year won’t be just 16 regular season games. The champs are going to see every team’s best game. Think of it as 16 Superbowls. Every team will be up to play the Packers. Don’t believe me, it’s understandable since this is a new experience as of late for the Packers.

    I’ll put what’s his name’s prediction along with all the other predictions of Superbowl victories from head coaches who’s teams didn’t make it.

    This would be a really intelligent comment…if we counted division titles here in Green Bay. That may be something they keep track of in other NFL cities that aren’t accustomed to success. I know some other teams hang banners for winning the division or the conference but you won’t see those at the world’s greatest athletic venue, Lambeau Field. You see, here in TitleTown, we only count world championships. I suppose that’s to be expected when the championship trophy is named after our team’s greatest coach.

    And next year, we’ve got 15 guys coming back from IR and another draft that Ted will dominate. Say goodbye to parity for a few years…

  125. jimmysee says: Feb 9, 2011 1:18 AM

    Really — all season long we’ve been hearing “take it to the bank,” “I guarantee it,” “Book it,” “write it down,” and other silly promises from all those, primarily Vikings trolls, but with a scattering of Bears and Steelers fans, who have been telling us every step of the way how the Packers stunk, they’d get tromped every week, would never win another game after they started 3-3, and all kinds of similar hogwash.

    In the end, none of them knew what the hell they were talking about. Take THAT to the bank.

    Taken as a whole, they’re not even as good as a broken clock — which they say is right twice a day.

    No doubt it’s a tough road to repeat — but the Packers are in the hunt.

    2011 looks pretty good to me.

    Did those same Steelers fans know their starting quarterback was going to plow his motorcycle into the side of a car that offseason? Not the best way to start off 4 months of football

  128. pakrguru says: Feb 9, 2011 1:36 AM

    Gotta love the comments from the idiots out here.

    No…the Packers won’t be playing Brady or Manning next year. Their AFC opponents will all come from the AFC West, meaning they get Rivers, Tebow (possibly), WhiteCassel, and a QB to named later (Raiders).

    Education always ignored in WI. That’s why WI is regularly among the top 3 in the nation in ACT scores every year, and why the University of Wisconsin is one of the best public institutions in all of the US.

    There was a charge ($5) for seats. The capacity of Lambeau is 73,000, but the indoor club seats, private boxes, outdoor club seats, and the top 10 rows (often called the Brown County seats, since as taxpayers we helped fund the refurbishment of Lambeau, we get tickets in a lottery every year) were not being sold, meaning it was sold out at roughly 60,000.

    People often turn out for team parades after they win a Super Bowl. Because we turned out (yes…I attended) for a small fee to welcome back a team which had to play on the road for month straight in order to be WORLD CHAMPIONS for the 13th time doesn’t make us ignorant, it makes us die-hard supporters of the team.

    When YOUR team faces the #1, #2, and #3 seeds in the playoffs on the road, wins, then takes on the best defense in the NFL (statistically anyway) and lights them up for 31 points, then you can celebrate in any fashion you so choose.

    Oh…..and I more thing. For those that think the Packers got lucky, and that the Steelers would have won the game without those 3 turnovers, remember this. If my aunt had balls, she’d also be my uncle. Wait….I’m pretty sure someone’s aunt in MN’s does have balls, so for everyone else…..put it to bed. The Packers are 13 time world champs. And for those who say that they won a lot of those championships before the Super Bowl era, riddle me this….do we think of the Yankees multiple championships in terms of when they won them….or that they did win them? Considering the Packers have won roughly 15% of the NFL’s championships yet they make up just 3% of the league….that’s called DOMINATION.

    thatmulekicks says:

    21 points off of turnovers. C’mon Nancy, the Steelers played their worst game since they lost to the Pats.

    21 points off turnovers could be interpreted as either poor play by the Steelers offense or great play by the Packers defense. Considering the turnovers Green Bay was able to force all season, I think reason would tend to point to the latter.

    Regardless, the only thing that ultimately matters is that the Green Bay Packers are World Champions for the 13th time in their history!

  130. tokyosandblaster says: Feb 9, 2011 2:40 AM

    lol to the dude that said that we’d only have it for 353 more days. The Packers keep the trophy forever.

    Beyond that, if people think that the Packers don’t have a chance next year, we’ll probably go ahead and take the experts’ advice over yours. Especially the dudes from Minny predicting the Vikings on top of the division. A 6-10 team with 11 UFA and no QB at all, you think that BOOM the Vikes are going to be 11-5? Hilarious.

    I don’t buy a stock on 3 days performance but I do on fundamentals – not being down by more than 7 points AT ANY ONE TIME in an ENTIRE season is damned good, the Patriots can’t say that and they’re supposed to be the standard. Winning your last 6 games when you had to – against teams with a combined winning percentage of .711 – that’s crazy and yeah – DAMNED GOOD.

    I will leave you all with this nugget – last NFC team to do a back to back Super Bowl?

    Green Bay Packers

    I bet the slack jawed yokal who’s job it is to change the population number sign at the border of the village of Green Bay was busy that day! No way should they have a team, it should be the LA Packers. Moving them to LA would greatly increase the NFL’s revenue and benefit all teams. And you don’t have 13 titles, you have 4. The others were pre merger, which means new league and new championship game. And I can’t wait for the day when Mike “Buffet” McCarthy decides Rodgers no longer has it, like he did with Favre, and the loyal cheeseheads give Rodgers the Favre treatment. Was Favre s suppossed to die because Buffet man and TT didn’t want him anymore?

  136. 49erman says: Feb 9, 2011 7:33 AM

    Repeating as champs will be very difficult as the Pack will have to be prepared for everyone’s best every week. Statistically, their strength of schedule is only .500 but no one knows how good the teams will be when they play the Pack.

    The odds are stacked vs the Pack but if they can avoid complacency and keep that hunger, they have a chance.

    Right, because losing one of the biggest nationwide fan bases in the NFL would be GREAT for the league. It would be great for fan morale.

    Also by your genius rationale, the NY Yankees have only about 5 WS titles instead of 27. But even if you only count the 4 SBs, that’s still more championships than about 88% of teams in the league.

    To your last “point,” when Rodgers starts throwing playoff and season ending picks to defenders my grandma could see coming, then we’ll cross that bridge.

    Bitter, much?

    I’d rather be in the playoffs at 6 seed and win the Super Bowl than win my division and choke… at home… against a rival…

    Or just suck like the Vikings.

    To the people saying that the Packers’ schedule is easier in the 2011 NFL season, I should point out that people said the same thing because the Saints’ schedule was also pretty easy (2 games against Panthers, 4 games against NFC West… 5-1 in those games) but they ended up losing in the first rounds itself. There is a reason for the phrase ‘Any Given Sunday’

    I would love to see a team like the Packers (young team with a good offense) win it again but winning two in a row isn’t exactly that easy.

    7.) FAVRE GOES DOWN!! Streak ends…
    8.) Metrodome collapses.
    9.) Favre finishes season on the bench. Tells Bears Peppers to “Go beat the Packers.”
    10.) Favre watches as the Pack topples the Bears TWICE in a successful quest to bring the Title back to Titletown.

    ==============================================

    You could write a much better script than that. There’s a laundry list of great Packer accomplishments that happened in 2010 that we can celebrate and they don’t all hinge on what the Vikings failed at this year. Drop all the Favre/Vikings BS and lets focus on what an amazing year Rodgers and the Pack had on their own.

    Don’t get me wrong, as a Packer fan, I loved seeing the Vikings fall flat this year, but when compiling a list of a 2010 Packers dream season highlights, not every bullet point should be about the Vikings.

  146. gamustangdude says: Feb 9, 2011 5:13 PM

    Let’s not forget how difficult it is for ANY team to get to the Super Bowl. The pure notion of announcing it out loud, will make him/Packers a very big target this year. And if it wasn’t for the last play in the Giants / Eagles Game Green Bay would have missed the whole Post Season. Not only does a team have to be resilient, which the Pakers have proven they are, it also takes a lot of luck to make it to the Suber bowl (or in NO’s case a lot of Refs).

    Packers won’t win 10 games next season.

    Huh? How do you figure? Giants and Eagles both finished 10-6. Flip the results of that game and the Giants take the division and the Eagles miss the playoffs. The Packers already had the tie breaker over the Eagles, so the Eagles winning that game actually made it slightly harder for Green Bay to make the playoffs than if the Giants had won.

That (plus Jets play easily their worst game of year vs. GB) allows Pack to reach 10 wins and squeak into playoffs as final seed.

    Jan 9, 2011 – Eagles blow Wild Card game as NFC’s best kicker tries to play through a serious family matter , misses two easy field goals and allows GB to squeak by 21-16

    Jan 15, 2011 – Falcons stupidly spy on Rodgers as GB easily wins divisional

    Jan 23, 2011 – GB gets ANOTHER break as Cutler injured, but Pack has to hold off a late Bear rally led by their 3RD STRING QB (lol) to squeak by again 21-14

    (SB win ok, nobody wanted to see Roethlisburger win anyway …)

    Now, somebody, anybody – you too Mike – here’s your challenge: SHOW ME A LUCKIER RUN TO THE SUPER BOWL THAN THE 2010 PACKERS.

    I’m not hating, just sayin’ … GB fans you’d always rather be lucky than good, and this year YOUR TEAM WAS … so knock off the dynasty bs, enjoy the good luck you had this year, and better prepare for the pendulum of fortune to swing the other way next year.

    With that being said…after reading almost every post in this thread, i have come to the conclusion that I am SOOOOOOOO glad that my life has more meaning than having my emotional highs and lows being tied to the success or failure of a sports organization that, as a fan of, I have little or no control over their success of lack there of.

I’ll admit at the beginning of the season I just wanted to see Arod win a playoff game or two and next year would have been the conclusion to years of development. With all that said, this year was why Football is the best sport on the planet. A team put all the pieces they had together and played up to their ability. No one person above the team…and the outcome was??? Super Bowl Champs Homeboy.

    Not saying that they will repeat…but they won it all with less talent. With the rest of the guys coming off of IR, joining the team that won it…you’re lying to yourself if you didn’t think they’ll have a great shot at it again.

    You’re right, it was lucky to lose Grant in the opener. It was lucky to lose Finley in week 4. It was lucky Rodgers was knocked out of a game and missed the following one to a concussion. It was also lucky they had 18 penalties in a loss to the Bears, who had were given a win against Detroit on a horrible call. It was also lucky when Matthews knocked Kolb out of the opener, since Vick played lights out and mounted a huge comeback.

    Luck is having a ball bounce your way or a coin flip going your way, it’s not outplaying other teams and winning. Your whole post fails miserably, as the Packers had less luck than most teams this year, but still came out on top.

    This has to blowing Pervy’s mind, what little he has left. Packers won the superbowl and he’s, of course, going to talk about next year, or even more pathetically talking about last year. Now he can’t rip on Packers football so he has to rip on WI, nice ad hominen attack. Good luck on your next QB, I’m sure the next Sean Salisbury is out there for ya!

    Vikings fans keep talking about 2009 like it was the best season ever. Maybe it was for you. We talk about which Super bowl championship seasons we like the best, you talk about what if’s, could’a beens, and should’ves.

What if Rodgers had not gone out against Det? Or if Crosby made the FG at the end of the game to beat Washington? What if Rodgers played against New England… you have to play with what is delt… And a more accurate statement would be
    Packers= Greatest run to SB ever… They had to win 7 straight games against teams with winning records to get the title and they did it. Get over yourself and your team who finished 4th in the NFC North…

    How would the minnesota vikings handle the situation the packers went through?….quit in week 1 and blame the coach and finish 0-16?

    I could also make 6 excuses for why we’re not undefeated this year, take away the 18 penalties and we blow out the bears, don’t lose Jermichael Finley in the 1st drive against the Redskins and Clay Matthews tearing his hamstring and we beat the Redskins & Dolphins….Special Teams don’t flop and we beat the Falcons in wk12, Aaron don’t get a concussion and we sweep detriot and blow out the Patriots….

    Vikingsfansbeatshimselftosleep likes to forget about the 10 missed holding calls on Matthews that game and the missed PI call on Rodgers redzone INT.

    That’s probably b/c Packer fans don’t whine about calls as much as Viking fans, but when you have a 6-10 season, that’s more embarassing than the last 49 combined, I guess a questionable blown call is all you can hold on to.

  168. vikingfansbeatupjimmysmith says: Feb 19, 2011 6:06 PM

Do any of you know anything about the history of the NFL before Feb. 6, 2011? And nobody has answered my earlier challenge …

    To summarize:
    calloustongue whined about missed penalties, then said “Packer fans don’t whine about calls” IN THE SAME POST! = YOU FAIL

    kenny, you’ve gone from delusional to plain ignorant, I didn’t give you one game, I gave you THREE = YOU FAIL

    axespray ACTUALLY compared Ryan Grant to Adrian Peterson = YOU FAIL (ALL DAY) lol

    chuckyd317 at least tried to make a case, but having injuries like every team deals with and missing one FG doesn’t compare to the examples I gave earlier … also the way Flynn played against NE doesn’t make Rodgers seem quite that valuable does it?

    —————————————————————

    First off, McCarthy didn’t decide Favre no longer had it. Favre retired and McCarthy already had Rodgers prepared. Many Packers still supported Favre when he went to the Jets, it was when he went to the Vikings that the so called ‘treatment’ came out.

    Secondly, let me laugh. Bwahahaha. Now that that is out the way let me tell you that The Packers will never EVER move to L.A.. In case you didn’t catch that let me repeat; The Packers will NEVER ever move to L.A.. The 112,000 owners of the Packers would never allow the team to relocate. The Packers are a community-owned, non-profit franchise. So LA will never see the Pack there, which I can’t manage to shed a tear over.

    And, by the way we do have 13 World Championship Titles. Which, is a title just go onto the NFL network and it recognizes that the Packers hold the most World Championships at 13. No, the Packers do not have the most Superbowl Titles, but they do have the most World Championship Titles. There is no disputing that fact.

    ———————————————————————

    You can literally pick out any run to the Superbowl and pick out plays/instances in games that were lucky and should not have happened which led to them winning the Superbwl. In pretty much every game you can pick out so called ‘lucky’ instances.

    Now, there are blown calls in every game. If you really want to get down to it then the Packers would have won more games in the regular season if it was not for blown calls. It happens to every team it has happened to the Packers which resulted in lost games.

    Falcons: This game was not luck at all. You can say all you want, but the Packers purely outplayed the Falcons on all aspects of the game. Rodgers was phenomenal and the defense broke Matty Ice’s cool.

    Bears: First off, Cutler getting injured was not beneficial in anyway to the Packers. The defense was familar and prepared for Cutler and The Packers were winning the game against him. The defense won that game. And with the whole 3rd string qb, the packers defense didn’t know the quarterback. The Packers defense made two interceptions off of that qb. He got lucky throws agaisnt a defense that was figuring out how to play him and their running game got them back in. In no way, was that run all because of the 3rd string.

    In addition, our team was by no means lucky. I mean come on, in the Superbowl we lost 2 of our best veterans on defense and offense. With all of our injured players we were still a good team throughout the season. If 16 player went on injured reserved, many of whom were key players, on a another team that team would not have done well. The Packers have never trailed by more than 7 points throughout the whole season. Our SECOND string quarterback almost beat the Patriots when Rodgers was out. The Packers forced their way through the playoffs and MADE teams create errors.

    Yeah, I agree with you to a point that some luck is involved, but saying that luck is what won the Packers the Superbowl is just plain bull. The Packers are a good team and it is feasible that they could make a second run. It would be extremely difficult and I am by no means guaranteeing it, but it is definitely within the realm of possibility.

    The reality check is: The Packers do have a damn good team.
