McCarthy has never lost a regular season game to the Giants. In fact, the Giants have only won one regular season game against the Packers since 1995. Besides, the Giants haven't gotten to the point where Coughlin is about to lose his job, so they aren't ready to start winning.

True but when was the last time we beat them in the playoffs? Back in 62 maybe.
We beat them in the regular season and they beat us in the playoffs.I just dont like the matchup with NY,but, they are 6-4 so they dont seem to have peaked yet either.They were 7-7 at one point last year and look what happened,ITs win able for sure,Its not nearly the end if we lose,as division games are much more important but it makes a statement with a win.

Larry was a very good player for the Packers during his 12 year career and holds the 4th longest consecutive start streak in Packer history. He was named to 2 Pro Bowls and was inducted to the Packer Hall of Fame. Unfortunately for him, not a lot of the other Packer players were good when he played.

One of my favorite McCarren stories was about his first Pro Bowl appearance. Larry was naturally very excited and thrilled to meet many of his idols. He said he met Joe Theismann for the first time. One day Joe needed a ride to practice and Larry was honored to give him a ride. However, Larry thought the ride couldn't end soon enough because of the insufferable conversation by Joe Theismann whose favorite topic was Joe Theismann. Apparently, Joe loved him some him.

Yeah, he was really good in highschool, played both ways if i recall...got a fullride to the Illini, and i remember the summer after his freshman year, as he came home all bigger and much more muscular...we had a Qb, Jeff Jones go to Purdue, he came home with a new, gold Camaro....lol...Back then, a lot of funny stuff was common....

That's funny....i was a kid, at O'Hare airport, when the Bears returned from an exhibition game in DC....Anyway, i idolized Dick Butkus....as he was walking thru, with the other players, i asked for an autograph, and he said...Get away, Kid....lol....Funny thing was, we only lived like 5 miles from where he grew up in Chicago....

Yeah, players are people too! Like all people, there are some that are mean, selfish, self-centered, egotistical, and lack character for a variety of reasons, or simply have some bad days or moments. It never ceases to amaze me that people act as though their adoration should have the power to transform people. However,it does smack a person in the face to realize that our heroes aren't what we imagined and hoped, but that's also true about anybody we know, hero or not.
