    WELL, I know there is a JINX, but I clearly remember the 1996 season and the lead-into the season, they put us on the cover and proclaimed us as the team to beat.

    I think Reggie and Robert Brooks were on that cover? Yep here it is, this was their preseason cover.

    Then during the season, they tried to jinx us again with this one:

    OMG,

    Speaking of the jinx: that was robert brooks first and only SI COVER ever, and what happened? he tore his ACL early that season and didn't get to play a down in that super bowl.

    Reggie and Farve had other covers though, Farve many of them.
    Reggie only had a couple I believe, and of course, he died way too young.

    Put Jared Allen on that cover soon please SI !!!

    I also believe the Packers are the top NFC team. We are pretty much stacked everywhere and every loss we get will come as a shock to me honestly.

    I know you're all wondering, and SI had Green Bay playing Kansas City in that 1996 preview issue. I remember that issue vividly, and I may still have it laying around here somewhere.

    Banks is a national writer but lives in madison wi and has a pretty decent grasp on the packers than other national writers.

    I remember (I think) Banks being a Star Trib guy back in Minneapolis.
