Mark Murphy presumes a Super Bowl appearance for the Packers

The Packers haven’t been to the Super Bowl since 2010. Their CEO thinks that streak will end in 2017.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun for all our fans to drive across the state when we’re in the Super Bowl in Minneapolis,” Mark Murphy told shareholders on Monday, via Aaron Nagler of PackersNews.com.

It’s a dream scenario for Packers fans, and a potential nightmare for Vikings fans. And the Packers will indeed be one of the favorites to make it to Minnesota for Super Bowl LII.

Of course, they’ve been one of the favorites for each of the past six seasons, but they still haven’t gotten there. Making it to the first, and likely only, Super Bowl to be played at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis will more than make up for losing the first regular season game there, which happened last September.

If it happens, it still could have been worse for Vikings fans. The Packers could have signed running back Adrian Peterson and brought him home to Minnesota for a game the Vikings haven’t played since 1977.

  1. BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Mark Murphy needs to be in concussion protocol!

    The packers “defense” will get a huge dose of Dalvin Cook and Stefon Diggs…….

    SKOL!!!!!!!

  2. And thank you for jinxing your franchise!!!!

    I love how everyone thinks this is the year the refs finally get the packers over the top. What has changed since the NFC Championship game beside unproven rookies and Davon House??

  3. Don’t be like the vikings and jinx our season before the team even enters training camp!

  4. Murphy knows what those “owners” want to hear. Every last one of them (a) believes the Packers will win the Super Bowl every year, and (b) is obsessed with the Vikings. Playing the Super Bowl in their arch-rival’s stadium is a dream scenario. The beauty of it is they’re all expecting it, which will make it even more delicious when they fail once again, most likely in spectacular fashion.

  5. When ya got the refs on your side anything’s possible I’ll never forget that one ref patting Rogers on the back during that last playoff game against the cowboys that was the most blatant show of favoritism I’ve ever seen

  6. Chemical fire defense, no running game. Basically ARod playing playground football against awful NFCN secondaries. This team is the Saints in an easier division.

    Why would we be “obsessed” with the Vikings ???

    We have 13 World Championships, and they’re OH FOR FOREVER !!!!!!!!

    Obsessed with laughter at their futility, maybe !

  8. What a shocking story. A team president thinks his team in going to the Super Bowl, very news worthy.

    “…for a game the Vikings haven’t played since 1977.”

    Forty years of futility. Let that sink in for a minute

    Ah yes 1977 the last time the Vikings were in the Super Bowl this is what happened that year:

    Carter was president
    Apple computers corporates
    Roots and Star Wars comes out
    It snowed in Miami
    Disco was popular
    Gas was 65 cents a gallon

    Anyhow as a longtime Packers fan I am not convinced they can get to the Super Bowl until I see improvement on that defense.

  10. This just in, Robert Kraft thinks his Patriots will be in the Super Bowl. Is that more credible?

  11. As Ned Potter mistakenly said to Marshal Rooster Cogburn, “That’s bold talk for a one-armed fat man,” There’s some U.S. Bank billboard material. Those predictions ain’t happenin’ “that I can tell you.”

  12. As long as they’ve got a healthy Rodgers I suppose there’s a chance. And based on his sour look in that picture, it appears it was taken after the last time the Pack played in US Bank stadium.

    Why is that the “likely only” Super Bowl to be played at a brand new stadium?
    ———————

    The new stadium is the only reason they even get the one. When cold weather cities build a new stadium they are entitled to one pat on the head Super Bowl as their reward. With new stadiums on tap for Vegas and LA the odds of taking the league’s premier party event to a frozen locale in February are only going to get worse. Heck, once those stadiums are available Houston, AZ and Miami are going to have to step up the freebies just to stay in the mix.

    ))))))))))))))))))))))))00000 you must be a new fan of the nfl.
    The Vikings have the sixth-highest regular-season winning percentage in modern NFL history, ahead of teams like the Ravens, Packers, Patriots and Colts.
    And certainly a better franchise than the Jags.

    And a grand total of SQUAT to show for it.

    Please don’t ever change. As much as I like watching purples make fools of themselves, you really stand out.

    Wouldn’t that be living in the past? Isn’t that what Viking fans keep telling Packer Fans to quit doing?

  18. The Giants have already booked their plane tickets and Dallas has already rented the horses. I think Seattle has also proclaimed their appearance. How many teams from the NFC can go?

  19. The Packers would be really amazing if they had a defense. Not sure when they will figure that out.

  20. Murphy should know better than to stoke the fire like that. He doesn’t have to play a down so its easy for him to run his mouth.

    The only silver lining is that if the Packers don’t make it this year, he can pull Ted Thompson aside and have a little chat about Ted’s pending retirement.

    Meanwhile, let the Viking trolls have their fun. 3rd place is such a lofty perch from which to make their comments.

  21. I think the Packers will invent a new way to collapse in the playoffs that will be funnier than the Seattle mealdown, the Arizona overtime choke, and the Atlanta blowout.

  22. There will be slightly more green and gold jerseys at US Bank Stadium in February than there will be during the Pack’s regular season meeting against the Barneys.

    Still
    Keep
    On
    Losing!!!!!!! SKOL!!!

    He’s right about one thing – you must be a new fan of the NFL, otherwise you would know that viking fans celebrate regular season win totals and division banners, because that’s all they have. Other than that empty trophy case.

  24. It’s never a good thing when their gm alreay had a dream about suppert bowl appearances. Doctor Martin Luther Kong’s brother is Mark Murphy.

  25. It’s never a good thing when their gm already had a dream about suppert bowl appearances. Doctor Martin Luther Kong’s brother is Mark Murphy.
