Of course expectations are high. Expectations for the league leader in championships should never drop.

So anything short of a superbowl victory is just another Favre-esque failure?

When you win the lead in Superbowls you can brag.

When The Steelers win another 6 NFL Championships they still won't be able to brag, because they will still be one behind where the Packers are now and by then the Packers will have won another dozen or so Championships. The Packers have ALWAYS been the best in the NFL and always will be. There isn't a close second. Do idiots like you only count MLB Championships since the last expansion? Or since interleague play started? Or since the number of playoff teams was increased? It is obvious you are stupid enough to line the McCaskey's pockets and get nothing in return but abuse and failure. So I fully expect such stupidity from a loser like you. Ha ha sucker!

Anything short of a superbowl victory is just another failure. Favre never succeeded or failed to win or lose a Super Bowl. Football is a team sport you idiot. The Packers won those record 13 NFL Championships. There were many players on those teams that were privileged enough to be a part of the Packers.

It's enough that the NFL and every knowledgeable football fan knows the truth. The opinion of idiots doesn't matter. Yeah, that means you!

Me too. The NFL isn't a pee wee league. By the time people reach their twenties, I hope they can accept that are winners and losers. In the NFL the season ends with ONE winner.

Read the Official NFL Record and Fact book you idiot. You do know how to read, don't you? If you do, you will see the following fact:

TEAM RECORDS
CHAMPIONSHIPS
Most Seasons League Champion
13 Green Bay, 1929-1931, 1936, 1939, 1944, 1961-62,
1965-67, 1996, 2010

The "they" you are talking about are idiots like you. As I said, KNOWLEDGEABLE NFL fans and the NFL know the truth. Idiots like you don't matter.

It's doing fine. It's helped to build the best venue in the NFL, it's helped to create a 13 time NFL Championship team, and it's helped the Packers contribute millions to charities throughout Wisconsin. How is your $3500 PSL fee doing? Ha ha sucker!

Not a whole lot of info as of now except JaMichael Finleys mild concussion.Looking forward to a solid season, the playoffs and hopefully a successful playoff run and a Super bowl championship.All to be determined of course,but,they are amung the top favorites to win it all nd there is always that team or 2 that underplay and a team or 2 who surprise,overachieve or whatever ( i dont like the phase overachieve,if they did it,they are capable of doing it,so ...but for the lack of another phase.)

Every year the preseason predictions are nothing more than a reflection of the teams that made the playoffs the previous year. Then every year there are about a handful of those teams that fail to make the playoffs. Most of the teams moving into or out of the playoff picture from one season to the next are from the teams with records within 3 games of .500 though. In other words, teams in the 5-11 to 11-5 range may find themselves changing their fortunes enough to put them in or take them out of the playoffs. The 15-1 and 3-13 teams aren't usually making a huge move in or out of the playoffs from one season to the next. I know that has to be bumming out the Viking fans, but as you've seen, some of them are very good at deluding themselves.
