Favre told Fox he has never tried to throw the ball in worse conditions.

With that mustache, Kyle Orton should easily find a job in porn when he finally washes out the league.

Maybe going to Dallas isn't the worst thing in the world. If this is how they're going to play in this kind of weather - against the Bears - I'd hate to see how they play against a good team.

There's a difference between Cold weather... and cold Weather with 200 mph winds (ok, a little exaggerated). We still want to play in Green Bay, as it's not nearly as windy there as it is in Chicago.

They're just playing like absolute garbage. The Bears are playing in the same conditions the Packers are, so the weather is no excuse. They're letting KYLE ORTON throw all over them.

That's ok. I find joy in knowing the Bears will be comfortably watching the Packers from their couch this post season.

What a sad display. It doesn't seem like a 12-2 team should be able to play as badly as they have today, no matter the weather.

Yeah it was awful. They got absolutely dominated. No way around it, because when it gets down to it, the Bears played on the same field in the same conditions. Weather is no excuse.

But, 35-7, 100-7, 8-7...a loss is a loss. They just need to keep their heads in this for the playoffs and don't get too caught up in this game. They gave up homefield back in Week 13, so this shouldn't be too much of a shock.

There's nothing to worry bout guys. How many times does a team come in and shock the team with Home field advantage?

Do you want to know why 75% of teams with home field advantage in the playoffs (excluding the NFC and AFC championhip games) win their game? Because they are the BETTER team. not because some magical aura about the field takes to equal teams and adds a little more to the home team.

That is why only 57% of the time, the teams in the NFC and AFC championship with HFA win... because you finally get two good teams playing each other and it's a toss up. The

The Panthers won 2 games this year, wow... big advantage there.

Home Field Advantage is over-rated and a non-factor. the 0-9 record in Dallas, and the 2-0 record in Green Bay is a mental tihng, and no indication of home a game is going to go.

This is great for us, because now we have two weeks to heal everybody up, as do the Cowboys. But the Cowboys healthy cannot compete with a healthy Packers team. I don't even care that we lost, I don't care if we lose next week... as it's not going to affect us in the least bit.

Yeah I'm not concerned about them going to Dallas. Despite what Dallas fans would like the rest of us to think, they aren't unbeatable. In fact, they're very beatable.

There have been a few games where Dallas has barely gotten by. Carolina, Washington, Buffalo, and Detroit come to mind. There could be a couple more, I'm not sure.

Dallas had a TON more to lose than Green Bay did by giving up homefield.

Let's let them have their moment in the spotlight. They'll come back down to Earth once the games get going and they're actually playing good opponents.

You have got to be #ing kidding me.
That is the funniest thing I have heard yet..
You all are way too big for your breeches... You'll see when the time comes.

So you match an arrogant statement with another arrogant statement and say we're 'too big for our breeches'?


I already gave you the breakdown earlier in the year. Healthy, the Packers are better.

It wasn't an arrogant statement. The Cowboys struggled with teams they shouldn't have, and just lost to a team they shouldn't have. They beat the Packers when we did not have our starting QB and 4 of our top defenseman in the game, and did so by only 10 points. You guys should have beat us by much more than that.

That's where I can conclude that a healthy Packers team will beat a healthy Dallas team. Not an arrogant statement, but one based off of what has happened in the season.

Uh, you did have your starting quarteback for the first quarter and a half of that game and we dominated him. I submit to you, had Favre continued to play, the score would have been much worse than it was. Dallas had game planned for Mr.Favre, not Rodgers...:shk:

This is where it becomes clear that you haven't watched many Green Bay games.

Brett Favre and that offense don't come out on a roll most of the time. They usually get it turned around after the first quarter, and we all know Favre didn't even make it to halftime.

Here is their points scored quarter-by-quarter:

1st: 72
2nd: 121
3rd: 102
4th: 106 (includes 6 from overtime)

They average a TD a game in every quarter except the first. It's quite clear they start off slow.

So if you want to tell yourself that Favre would have continued to play like that to make yourself feel better, by all means, keep doing it. But it's simply not likely at all.

Ok, so I've made a bet with this girl I know who happens to be a big Cowboys fan. At first it was this: If the Cowboys and Packers met in the playoffs, and the Packers won, she'd have to wear my Favre jersey... something innocent. Well now the stakes have been raised.

If the Packers lose to the cowboys, I have to wear a shirt that she'll make that says "I'm Homo for Tony Romo."

So what I need suggestions for is what I could have for if the Packers win...

Well, all I can suggest is get prepared to be looked at by some very feminine men.
GO COWBOYS!!!!

There's so many possibilities. I won't go in to them. Just be creative. Put all your thought in to it because it'll be worth it in the end. I wouldn't worry about the "Homo for Tony Romo" shirt. You won't be wearing it anytime soon.

Unfortunately for him, in three weeks or so, he will be. That is if GB even makes it that far, judging by their last performance, I have to wonder if they should even be in the playoffs.
