    In watching the major news networks tonight..... Ive come to the conclusion they are obsessed with T.O. and Romo, its like the Packers lost today or something...... The Cowboys are a good team, nut they arnt great, and it seems they are more of a selfish egotistical ticking time bomb...... Terrell Owens is a disgrace to the greats that came before him.....his antics are childish and pathetic. They have one good reciever and a solid but over rated defense. This is a team that barely beat Minnesota and SHOULD have lost to the Bills.

    Dont let the media fool you, the Packers are just as good if not better than the Cowboys.

    With all that being said..... I hope the media will continue to slobber all over the Cowboys.... so we can show up in three weeks and show Dallas who Americas team really is

    Of course they aren't. Besides Favre, Driver and Kampman no one outside Packers fans know who most of these guys are. Jennings is making a name for himself and Grant is starting to step up. But when you have a team full of guys who no one knows and teams with big names of course they're gonna give them more attention.

    It's all about the entertainment and ratings in the end. With a team full of guys that haven't made a name for themselves yet people wont be as drawn... just yet. Lets just keep winning and leave all the off field antics to the NFL celebrities while we grow stronger and better as a team.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Meh. I'd rather we not be covered at all rather than having excessive coverage of how our players have beat the odds thus far, and end up having our young team filled with a few big egos because of the excessive media coverage.

    I'm happy sitting at 8-1, let's get to the Superbowl and the Pack will get more coverage than they could've dreamed of.

    I couldn't agree more mate. The Packers are not getting their credit this season for two reasons:

    1-No real star players or household names, apart from the obvious.

    and 2-The minute a team from a large city, or large fan base like New York or Dallas are doing well, the NFL want that team and its potential market to get full media coverage. I mean, When the Giants are doing well, that means nearly 11million people in New York will take an interest and buy a jersey. When Green Bay do well.... who cares, the state of Wisconsin already buy tons of merchandise, there really isn't anymore people to promote the team to!

    In short, Money money money!

    But yes, the Packers are going to the Superbowl... whatever about winning it, we'll see what magic Brett can condure on his last game on the biggest stage of American Football and American Sport in general. should be good!!! GO PACK!

    Look, Dallas went up against NYG in NY. NY were only 1 game behind Dallas and would be tied if they won. It was a huge game in deciding the division along with 2 teams atop the NFC.

    On the flip side, GB faced the 3-win Minny team who have really 1 superstar talent and were playing at home. The Packers were supposed to win that game easily.

    So based on the match-ups, Dallas-NY was the bigger game. That being said, the media have been gushing over Dallas all year long, while merely being surprised that GB is still doing well. The lazy 'experts' predicted that GB wouldn't even make the playoffs and instead they're one of the top teams in the NFL. It's not in their best interest to talk about how great GB is because it means they were wrong and they are not good at admitting how dumb they really are.

    In the end, I'm glad we're not getting the attention from the national media. I don't want it! Give it to Dallas. Make them the great team and us the lowly Packers. I think we play better as underdogs and all that really matters is getting it done on the field.

    GO PACK GO!!!

    I have never seen a game won because of a power poll ranking or whom an analyst calls the best team in the conference. We have a young balanced team that gets the job done on Sunday's right now.. Personally I think it is better for the Packers to have the "talking heads" keep putting us under the Cowpokes.. it only feeds the fire for the matchup in a couple weeks.

    The big thing for us, yes it is cliche, but to not overlook anyone and play it one game at a time and on Sunday's line up and beat the snot out of the guy across from you.

    Point blank.. win it on the field not in the media.. leave that BS for the ego's of TO and the growing monster of an ego that Tony Romo is getting.. Wisconsin kid or not, the fame is getting to Romo, he will flame out here very quick with the time he is spending with the chicks from Hollywood...

    Let them drool all over Dallas...and continue to pour a little gas on the Packers' white hot flame. This team is getting better each and every week, and I have to say, MM is showing a mastery of gameplanning that I do not think any of us anticipated. The guy has transformed this team into a hard as nails unit, that has great minds calling the shots.

    Bottom line, our QB/WR s should be able to eat a suspect Dallas secondary, and our D is probably better top to bottom.

    Keep it rolling.

    I wanted to take this point and bring it home. I don't think I've ever seen a coach improve this fast in the NFL. He is literally getting better every week. In the off-season, he worked on his flaws and turned them into strengths.

    If MM doesn't get Coach of the Year, I'm going to be pissed.

    Wow, what a crappy article by Mr. Perloff. I've noticed that the play that is being emphasized in the national media is the would-be interception that bounced into Ruvell Martin's hands for a TD. That's the one highlight that was shown during halftime of the Sunday night game, and Colin Cowherd just mentioned it as well, as he said that it was one of those games where everything went right for the Packers. None of them has pointed out that the Packers had dominated the entire game and were leading 27-0 in the fourth quarter when that play happened.

    I try not to get too irritated by this stuff, but I can't help it. As I've said before, I'm glad this is pro football, not college, so it will all be decided on the field before the season is over. We don't need to worry about polls or bowl invitations.

    Yup.

    The FACTS are this. The Green Bay Packers HIT harder, they play extremely FOCUSED on the road, and, the Boy's will be a little to comfy playing their third straight at home which is MUCH harder to get up for then having just gotten back to their own turf.

    We, like NE, have way to much offense for them and I just don't see them being able to stop us. The Giants, with Manning and his WR's, cannot touch ours and I truly believe we could have stayed point for point with them offensively watching that game.

    People don't know the Pack because their a quiet team in a small market that minds their own business. We have star power ON THE FIELD. We just don't have it off the field which is fine by me.

    Aikman

    Listening to Aikman after the dallas game saying that dallas has set themselfs apart from the rest of the nfc. He gives Greenbay no credit it's like new england and dallas are it and there is everybody else.

    Well if you look at the one loss then people probably give more credit to the Cowboys because they lost to the Patriots and we lost to the Bears. I still like this underdog treatment though, because if people say you are the 2nd best in the NFC, then that is still freaking good. We are lucky to be Packer fans right now! Life is good :)

    Aikman

    Last week you guys praised him for praising the Packers.

    Stop being so whiny. It's better to not get credit, that way you can shove it in everybody's faces. Besides, Brett Favre gets an unlimited amount of facetime--and the rest of the fans find it annoying.

    Enjoy what you have.

    Aikman

    I heard him. I have to say when you look at all the numbers there is no way you can clearly put the Boys in front of us. It's as close as it gets and I doubt there are two teams with the same record so close together in most of the key catagories.

    We allow fewer points (ranked 2nd to their 22nd) and they gain more yards rushing (10th to 32nd). Other than a spread in these areas the two teams are remarkably close in almost all of the other areas.

    I wonder if Aikman goes that far out if he had watched the Packer game. I have my doubts and I certainly wouldn't hang my hat on a victory over the Giants because before the season is over I think they will prove they aren't that good.

    With all due credit to the "media," several sources have us rated above the Cowboys in their power rankings. I don't know about CNN and such, as I try not to pay attention to those, but about half of the sports analyses like the packers, especially with a developing run game. That was the main reason we weren't getting much love, which is somewhat understandable. .
