And your point?

I think his point might be that, despite 4 Super Bowl wins, and despite only three teams having more Super Bowl wins and only one team having the same number, and that despite the Vikings having exactly zero Super Bowl wins, the Packers will have years in which they look as bad as the Vikings always do. I think that's the point.

Viquennfail - actually his point is fair weather fans like yourself should enjoy Rodgers while you can. The dark ages of the 70s and 80s in which Green Bay was a laughing stock of the league are only a few short years away. Better dust off the paper bag hats from the 80s!

Got your facts wrong, Jim. The Packers won a playoff game against the Cardinals in 1982, and gave Dallas all they could handle in the next round. Remember Lynn Dickey? Apparently not.

Yep -- take away Rodgers and the Packers are just another NFL team with a horrible defense! Most Packer fans 30-years or younger have no concept that for decades, you looked at the schedule, saw the two Packer games, and automatically jotted down two W's for yourself -- I suspect their return from the QB fantasy world they have been living in during the #4 and #12 eras will be a bitter journey!

The Packers have sold out every home game since the last game in 1958. Thats about 387 games. Even during the bad years the fans supported the Pack.

Hey Vikings1, GB has (THIRTEEN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS) that would be compared to the Vikings (0). The dark ages will NOT return, Lambeau Field and the Green Bay franchise are a model of one of the best franchises in the NFL, playing in the NFL's smallest city. Yes without Rodgers they will struggle, but so would Denver, New England and New Orleans would. But GB fans will still support one of, if not the best franchises in the NFL

Mymyheyhey - saw a lot of the "fans" stream out of the last two home games at the beginning of the 4th quarter. Can only the "support" the fickle fans of Green Bay will provide once Rodgers retires, lol! Btw - much like the Gophers 7 national titles in football before 1970, no one cares about the 11 "world championships" you and your ilk like to continuously quote.

My word you people. You are right- he does not come out and just say his point. As a writer he leaves that up to the reader to come to their own conclusions, otherwise his article would be two sentences long. When you hit the quarterback jackpot- not once, not twice, but three times in a franchise history it is a big deal. The vikings did it once with Tark, other teams maybe twice, so be thankful for it because with Rodgers out it is a gentle reminder as to how hard it is to win without an absolute star athlete, leader, passer on the field. It really is that simple.

Green Bay will always support the Packers. There entertainment choices are pretty much limited to either going to the Packers game or going bowling.
