    The funny thing about Theisman's list is that all the teams above the packers in his power rankings have a somewhat legitimate shot at beating the packers on a neutral field and I would be nervous about those games. The ones below have no shot (except the chiefs of course)

    Controversy to take a gamble and say ha ha I'm right if he wins.

    Theisman isn't a very bright guy. Never has been. I don't pay him much mind.

    I like the fact that people are writing the Packers off already. After one loss, it seems everyone has jumped onto the Saints and Niners bandwagon. Less pressure on us the better

    Maybe he spent too much time blow drying his hair and burnt his brain.

    I haven't been paying him much attention, tbh. Has he always made off the wall predictions like this? It makes me wonder if he's been smoking funny things.

    Is that one of those laugh fests where one guy totally looses it, and then everybody starts laughing at the guy laughing, and nobody can stop? Because it wasn't ALL that funny.

    His job is to create controversy. He does a good job since all of the other "experts" are somewhat similar in the top 10.

    The question with a much more concise answer would be "What's not wrong with Joe Theisman?"

    What do you expect from a guy who changed the pronunciation of his name to rhyme with the Heisman Trophy? He's a total *** wipe.

    Joe Theismann's ranking of the Packers this week hasn't changed my view that he continues to be one of my favoite tv analysts. In fact, it was Theismann who convincingly established Rodgers as the best quarterback ever. The video was funny to me cause I needed a good belly laugh while I recover from my hernia surgery.

    It's his opinion, don't really effect me.


    I never liked the guy personally, included when he was a commentator. I wish they'd bring back Joe Gibbs on CBS if they desperately need a Washington connection for a commentator.

    Both Thiesmann and Sonny Jurgensen aren't that bright. It was Jurgensen that was praising Dan Synder to start a washed up Jeff George over young Brad Johnson, (whom had just won a Super Bowl not too long ago at the time) some years ago, the one and only time I agreed with Terry Bradshaw when he made fun of them both"Sonny and Jeff have one thing in common, they've never won anything!"

    Which didn't help him. Was he even drafted by the NFL? I know he was playing in Canada for a bit.

    4th round pick by Dolphins. He thought he was better (see $$ and ego here) and went to Canada.

    Mark Rypien < Joe Thiesman.


    I would put my money on Rypien to win, where Thiesman lost them a Super Bowl to the Raiders after the refs gave them the game against SF.


    Even die hard Redskins fans will tell you Rypien would be there choice over big mouth Thiseman.

    As a commentator, Thiseman make Aikmen look like a genius. The only thing worse would be having bloody Favre in the booth.

    You mean other than him being an idiot?
    Seriously, in the past I usually find myself liking players who wound up on the tube a lot better than when they on the field. Dan Dierdorf and Joe Theissman are notable exceptions. I often wonder how they keep their jobs. The most ridiculous and inane nonsense comes out of their pie holes on a regular basis.
