Default Interesting Packer Fact

The Packers lost twice by field goals in overtime, twice by field goals in the last 10 seconds of the fourth quarter, and twice by four points, with both of those four-point losses coming on the road with quarterback Aaron Rodgers injured. No team in NFL history had ever before had a six-loss season with all six losses by four points or fewer, according to Stats Inc.

In fact, until this season's Packers, no team had even had a five-loss season with all the losses by four points or fewer. The only team that ever had four losses all by four or fewer was the 1987 Washington Redskins, who went on to win the Super Bowl.


I only post this because a lot of people seem to think this is the same Packer team you guys faced last year, and its not. With 15 guys on IR and the constant shuffling of players into new spots, this really is pretty amazing considering what we went through this year. I also read that we have never trailed by more than 7 all year (didnt verify personally).
Anyways I am sure you guys arent all that impressed, but I figure I would post this anyways and maybe give you a different perspective on the Packers,

Ive said this a few times the last few weeks. What happen in week 15, week 13, last year, SB 31, SB 1, SB 9 has ZERO barring on Super Bowl 45.

The Steelers waxed the Jets to the tune of 24-0 before they took their foot off the pedal. Who saw that coming? No one. Steelers spotted the Ratbirds 14 points, and beat them a week before that. And Ratbird games are always close from quarter 1 to 4, last min games.

However, looking at the Packers run the last two games especially, they waxed one of the worst secondaries in the league in Atlanta and beat the most overrated team in the NFL in the Bears. The Steelers beat a 12-4 wild card team for the 2nd time and beat a Jets team that beat the Pats and Indy in their house.

If I were you, I would worry about stopping the Steelers run game. Because Matt Forte was running all over you guys. And if Urlacher isn't running a 5.0 40 on that INT, that game would have changed quick. And you also let a 3rd stringer go up and down the field pretty well until dumb play calling stalled that last drive. Steelers do not make bone head decisions in clutch moments. So be careful.

First of all, I will give you another Interesting FACT! In the HISTORY of the NFL, No team has EVER won a Super Bowl where they had a LOSING road record...none! And if you think that teams getting to the Big game would normally have a winning record on the road, you would be wrong. There has been 4 of them, and ALL 4 lost.
Remind me again,,,what was Green Bay's road record ?


Oh, and as for the Injury card,,,PLEASE don't go there with us. We have lost way more significant players to Injury, or from trades and free agency then the Packers have. And as for your QB being out 2 games, both road losses...CRY me a river dude. We had 4 games without ours, and we went 3-1, and should have been 4-0

And as for your Detroit loss. Hell your Mr. ALL-WORLD QB was sucking it up even BEFORE he got Injured. He was 7-11 yes, but for 46 yards A crummy 4.18 YPA and 1 Interception...PLEASE DUDE! Not to mention the losses to teams like Miami, these same pathetic Bears, Washington, and the first Detroit game that your team SHOULD have lost...all WITH Mr.Rodgers. So please son, don't come here with your weak A$$ Sh it cause THIS Forum has REAL FANS in it who will blow the doors off your little Cheese Head stats! So long now little Boy. It's past your bed time!

I suppose the argument is the Packers do not know how to close out tight games with all those losses

Other teams have played close games


The ’09 Steelers were the first team since the ’98 Super Bowl champion Broncos not to trail by more than 7 points at any time during the first 12 games of a season


http://fifthdown.blogs.nytimes.com/2...eason-preview/

Steelers record at that point was 6-6 - NFL counted all 6 losses the same as if those losses were blowouts and the Steelers missed the playoffs

Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades

Im not one for arguing with people who refer to you as "Son" on a message board when I am sure I am older than you, but whatever. I could go on for days about facts and stats and try having a reasonable conversation about football with you, but I see your a liberal and we all know theres no point in trying to talk sense into them.

If you want to talk football and keep it to a respectful level, I am there all day with you. If you want immature banter about my weenis is bigger than your weenis, you got the wrong guy.

I will say this to anyone who wants some football opinion from me. I am not making excuses for the Detroit loss, that was sickening, but their DL is absolutely beastly. Suh is the best DT I may have ever seen. That is probably the only team I worry about aking a huge leap into the upper echelon of the NFC in the next few years. Say what you want about that being a pathetic loss, and it was....But Detroit isnt the pushover they once were, not to mention division games even against the shittiest opponents can go either way sometimes.

Not to sound to ignorant, but do you think you dramatically improved and if so where and why? I see Pouncey as a huge improvement, but not sure about anything outside of that.

Polamalu did not play after mid-November in 2009 and missed the Green Bay game

Some might say his absence was significant

I can relate with that. Hell last year we got punked by the Browns and Bengals, so we know all about division games against perennial bottom feeder teams. Don't worry about some of the fans, they're prolly still a little edgy from dealing with the crying Jets fans.

The defense is unbelievably better, with Polamalu and McFadden back and Ziggy Hood much improved. The Packers will NOT be putting up 36 points this time around. The Steelers defense has only allowed more than 22 points once all season, and that was against the Patriots. The defense last year was ranked number 12 in points allowed. This year, they're number 1. The Packer offense went from number 3 in scoring offense to number 10 this year. The Steelers scoring offense last year was ranked 12 and it's in the same exact spot this year (and that's including the games Ben didn't start!). The Pack defense was 7 last year in points allowed and are 2 this year. A slight improvement. So basically, from my point of view, the Steelers could put up 37 again, but there's no way it's in a shoot-out.
