Default We're Favored?

I'm not a betting man and don't pay all that much attention to the spread but I was SHOCKED to hear we're favored this week. 2 points is the last I saw. I guess people are banking on that we don't lose the 6th straight? GB has been on fire lately and we're, well, you know how we've been. Here's to hoping we pull out of this slump and surprise some folks.

On Inside the NFL, Collinsworth and Simms picked us to win this week.....

Right after Collinsworth said he saw the Patriots going to the superbowl....

Green Bay hasn't played anyone good all year, that's why. When they do, the opponent tends to score 30+ points on them. They could be the most overrated team in the NFL this year.

I would've said "except for the Cowboys," except that it's starting to sound like they aren't even "rated" anymore.

Well keep in mind that this is a home game for the Steelers and the home team is always given a 3 point start in the spread. So when they say the Steelers are favored by 2...that's not saying they have a lot of confidence in the Steelers winning lol.

Their predictions were based on emotion and that the Steelers could not possibly give another game away. The bottom line is if they don't play well, they will be booed out of their own stadium. That you can take to the bank. I would bring earplugs if you are attending the game.

Looking back through the season, I don't remember us being underdogs in any game we've played. No, wait... the Ravens game had us heavy underdogs due to Ben being out.
