Packers have perfect look

DETROIT -- The Green Bay Packers are going undefeated in the regular season.

I wasn't sure about that, but looking at their schedule and watching them abuse the Detroit Lions Thursday, I am convinced of it.

Those old-time Miami Dolphins might want to sweat some now. Even they have to know. It's going to happen.

The Packers weren't their usual high-flying offensive show for much of the game, but they turned it on in the third quarter, got three interceptions, including one that set up a touchdown at point-blank range, and they left Ford Field with an impressive victory.

The Lions were supposed to be one of those teams that could ruin a chance at perfection.

That's laughable now.

Green Bay could still lose a playoff game or the Super Bowl, but as far as the regular season get ready for them to win them all.

Sixteen and oh is coming.

Get ready for it.

2. division record - different divisions
You're an idiot.  Its their record against division opponents.  If the Packers drop one against the Lions or Bears at the end of the season, and the 49ers win out, the 49ers will be undefeated in their division and win the 2nd tiebreaker.  It isn't that complicated.

Papajon - And your point is? I don't understand all your hypotheticals. Is this like a new form of fantasy football?

Packers have perfect look

I really don't want to go pissing on anyone's parade, least of all Prisco's. Still, I had some curiosity about things prior to the games on Thursday. The 49ers were, according to the record only 1 game behind Green Bay for best record in the NFC. What would happen, I wondered, should the Packers lose and end up tied for best record? The 49ers had lost to the Cowboys, but that was their only loss prior to the Raven game. Were Green Bay to lose to the Lions, what then? Fortunately, they didn't but the question remains and the 49ers loss to the Ravens may mean more than most realize. Proceeding from a tie in records between the 49ers and the Packers the rules to split ties for the wild card apply.

1. head to head -didn't happen. 2. division record - different divisions 3. conference record - a conference loss (say to the Giants) puts each at 1 conference loss apiece. 4. winning percentage against common foes, 4 game minimum; 49ers BEAT the Giants, Rams, Lions and demolished the Bucs with one game remaining against the Rams if I'm not mistaken. A loss to the Lions would have given the 49ers a leg up on common games. Should the 49ers beat the Rams again the Packers must finish with a better record and/or beat the Lions again because I sure don't want to start down the point differential path with that ass-whuppin the 49ers gave the Bucs who gave the Packers a much better game than they did San Fran. In short, the Packers cannot take a 'game off' without putting home field advantage at serious risk, still, after watching the 49ers against the Ravens, my suspicions about their record being a tad inflated because of the weak division they play in was confirmed in my opinion, still, they did beat everyone in the NFC save for the Cowboys so they are not to be taken lightly.

Such an obvious attempt to get as many people writing and flaming him just to show his boss that people are reading his garbage. Prisco is the worst idiot of a writer in all of sports and has been for years. This is just a perfect example of what a total tool this clown is. Sad really. Give it up Pete you are a total loser.

What is the saying?  Even a broke clock is right to times a day?

bold prediction..and as a Packer fan it would be nice if Prisco were correct, but lets see how it plays out.  An injury here or there, a few bad breaks, and GB could easily drop any of their remaining games.  As the saying goes, "that's why they play the games".

I'd ;like to see a little more insight from Prisco; why GB is so equipped to achieve this?

One point some have made arguing against it is because NEw England was abusing everyone at the start of the season, winning by an average of 3 touchdowns (instead of the two GB is averaging).  This is precisley why GB standas a good chance.  theya r e not wasting energy running up scores.  It is kind of like killing a mouse with a hand grenade, exactly how dead does the mouse have to be?

GB's defense was a concern for me until yesterday.  But in a close game when the Offense was having trouble getting going the D sut out the high powered Detroit Offense  (weren't they the second highest scroing outfit going in), and only after GB opened up a 24 point lead (with some helpf form the D to get those poinpts) did the Defense give up a couple of touchdowns.  

Maybe McCarthy and Capers are duping us; playing a "ropea dope" defense letting teams wear themselves outbut in the end not getting much in the way of  points and using hte poter teams offense to run time off the clock rather than GB's. 

there have been some games that have been close but in the end the D has always stepped up when it had to.  Really New Orleans is the only team that really had a chance to force overtime and they needed to convert two plays at the end...and the defense came through when it needed to. 

What if the Packers coaches are not really dialing up the best schemes and pushing players just yet; waiting for the end of the season to unleash the true talent of this team?  Belechick rode that 2007 team like is was a sprint; running up scores and blowing people out.  Towards the end of the season they were barely hanging on to win.   GB has been hanging on, almost toying with teams like a cat playing with a mouse, almost letting it get away. 

Yesterday the two inside backers went down for GB and in steps two unknowns; both played admirable, Francois getting a big pick and smith making 5 takcles and playing well.  If this coaching staff has been grooming the new guys as they did last year and they get half the contribution from these guys GB does indeed have a good chance of going 16 - 0, but more importantly, winning another super bowl.  And as McCarthy said yesterday in his post game hews conference, that is the goal.  16 - 0 is nice but it isn't winning a champiionship!
