    Whenever I watch a sports show on TV, all they seem to talk about is the Eagles or Cowboys or even the Bears in the NFC.

    Whenever they talk about QB's its always Brees, Newton, and Manning.

    I feel like the Packers are a team that no one is talking about even though I think they are the best team in the league. I think this could be a good thing though. Just go out there, not a lot of hype, win games, and get GB another Super Bowl!

    Media tends to focus on the obnoxious, offensive, and controversial. We don't exactly give them much to talk about in those areas

    ESPN the mag picked them to go undefeated and to win the Super Bowl. I don't think that one is under the radar.

    They've all sucked on the Packer nipple the entire offseason. They are just looking for other teams to talk about right now. Remember, it's all about ratings so they try to talk about the other teams. They already know that nutty Packer fans are watching just to hear a tidbit about their team.

    No, but there are better storylines right now in camp with other teams. This team is rather boring at the moment for the media to pay attention

    If the Pack IS flying under the radar, that's just fine with me! I like to go into the season unassuming, and be able to surprise a few teams.

    Seems like the Packers are always somehow under the radar. Maybe it's just because they aren't covered 24/7 like the freaking New York Jets. Cannot believe how much press a 7-9 team is getting!

    We are too business as usual. They want headlines and ratings and jock shock. That is why the eastern media focuses on Tebow and Rex and Vick and the Saints down under. They have not paid much attention to us in the offseason since the Favre controversy. 3 Vikings fly down to Kiln, MS. What a story!

    we are absolutely not under the radar, Aaron Rodgers is the BEST QUARTERBACK IN THE LEAGUE there is no way he can fly under the radar, every defense in the back of their mind when they face the Packers is oh boy Aaron Rodgers, and the receiving core we have Jennings, Nelson, Driver and young guy Cobb no one is over looking the Packers.

    What Ivo said- Just not a ton of excitement or drama with this team right now. We don't make HUGE splashes in free agency, and we usually remain drama free, so there's no real big reason for us to get all kinds of media coverage come training camp and preseason.

    But no, we're not under the radar at all. A 15-1 team doesn't fly under the radar.
