    I like this one. The comments below the blog post are hilarious. REMEMBER, Aaron Schatz had us as a Super Bowl sleeper...with everyone laughing at him then. I know there's still a lot of season left, but his prediction doesn't seem so laughable now.

    http://www.packerforum.com/index.ph...opic&t=9859&highlight=Packers+super+bowl+odds

    We were at 60-1 odds, 8th worst in the league to make the Super Bowl this year. I'd say those odds are a bit slimmer now.

    I like looking back at old threads/stories to see how people felt at the time.

    Those comments are AWESOME!

    "Ted boy is the worst GM in the entire NFL..."

    "Shouldn't he be accountable? Instead we get comments from Ted like, "I think we're pretty much OK with the guys we have", and, "It is what it is ". Its just wrong. "

    ......aaaaaactually you were wrong.

    When I predicted 16-0 and Superbowl, EVERYBODY listened...NOT!

    I am definitely not EFHutton. But I seem to be getting NO credit for MY predictions...

    Pack_in_black:

    This is my favorite comment.

    From Jersey Packer Fan.

    "Hey all you TT lovers WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!! He is by far the worst GM in the NFL, do not even mention Ron Wolf and TT in the same sentence!!

    Do any of you remember a free agent named Reggie White? Or a coach named Holmgren? How about BROOKS,FREEMEN,LEVEINS,BENNETT,HENDERSON,CHMURA,CLIFTON,FLANNY,I can go on and on. please stop giving TT accolades on drafting AJ Hawk at number 5 he would have been a fool not to take him. Also remember all the players old Teddy boy showed the door. Sharper,Longwell, Flanny etc. I have been a Packer fan for over 40 years, and have seen them play all over the country but we have to call a losser a losser, TT wants his name on this team and has done nothing to help the best Q/B the franchise has ever had."

    NOTE: I DID NOT START THIS. R.P. IS COMMENTING ON THE ABOVE POST. Heretofore.... Do not rag my *** about being a T.T. Lover.

    Thank you....

    R.P.

    Loved this one:



    Yeah, damn that idiot for signing one of the best DT's in the league, and the fulcrum-point of our top-10 defense! .......Nice.

    Remember everyone...60-1 odds. Just one more win and we're in.

    Remember when KGB said we should have a good chance of reaching the Superbowl? Remember how the reporter just laughed off his comment? Remember this prediction?

    Pretty awesome stuff.

    That's really not it at all. At least that wasn't my intention. I just wanted to post that we were such underdogs coming into this season. Nobody thought we'd be this good. One expert predicted our emergence pretty well. It was supposed to be a "feel good" thread.

    I don't think now is the time to do a "I told you so" thread.

    Sorry I was referring to the net comment.. the intention of the premise of the thread wasn't intended that way.

    That thread made me very sad. It reminded me that I was going to bet, but never got around to it. I was going to put $100 on the Pack. That would have been a nice chunk of change. could have taken Mrs. Z on a cruise with that money.

    As usual I'm a year late and a dollar short.
    Last year when I was in Vegas I put $100.00 on the Packers to win the Super Bowl.
    My wife was pissed that I did that, now if she thought about it she would be pissed that I didn't do it this year.
    Oh well!

    Do I have to drag out all of the "Favre sucks" and "Favre should have retired", "Favre doesn't have the arm strength anymore", "Favre is holding the team hostage", "Favre is retarding Aaron Rodgers" etc.,etc..ad nauseum?

    Or are you only upset at the posters that took a shot at "Ted Boy"?

    Why are you being defensive? Did anyone specifically bring out your name? Just enjoy the moment now.

    Obi1,
    I was actually going to start a new post this morning pointing this out.
    I got busy at work :evil: and forgot. So sorry.
    I just wondered how much green and gold koolaid you had been drinking.
    I figured the Pack would be 9-7 tops. (7-9 more likely.)
    Super Bowl? Not this team. Well You we a lot closer than most of the rest of us.
