This team should be underdogs against the Pats, Seahawks, and Vikings coming up and will likely be 4-6-1 after that stretch. The talent is there, and the coaching gets even less out of it than they should.

This team should be an underdog until next season, and only if they prove otherwise by then.

I totally disagree. The Packers played a 7-0 team on the road, and went toe-to-toe in a game I believe they would have won if Montgomery hadn't made such a selfish decision to bring the ball out.. It was an extremely disappointing loss.

You are all fans, and as such you have the right to throw in the towel at any point. However, I sure as hell hope the coaching staff and players continue to believe that they're no one's underdog. I believe their play yesterday kind of proved that point.

Please note, I'm not talking about point spread, as I've explained earlier in this thread.

Onto another extremely tough challenge, against the New England Patriots at their house. The Packers certainly have put their backs against the wall and have left themselves a little room for error. I m sure we can all agree on that.

The Green Bay Packers never lost a football game.
They just ran out of time.

I didn't call, nor do I believe anyone posting in this thread is an idiot. I certainly don't think GM - a longtime fan and poster is. And I understand and respect you, GM, Mark and others believing that the 7 - 0 Rams (a very good football team) are a superior football team to the 3-2-1 Packers -- they certainly have been over the first seven games of the season. The Rams from a literal spread perspective are indeed 9.5 point home favorites.

I started this thread stating an opinion, not a soundbyte. I think that a  finally healthy Packers team coming off of their bye week are no one's underdog. Not only is that my opinion, that better be the attitude of any team that wants to contend and compete each week and for a championship.

Why anyone would take that as a personal affront is beyond my comprehension.

I'm looking forward to watching a game between two contending teams in nice weather - 80 and partly cloudy sky's. I've always liked the Rams and am glad to see them back in So. CA. The all-time series is knotted at 46 - 46 - 2 so the winner will have season and series bragging rights.

Like I previously wrote, ". I will be delighted, but not shocked if the Packers win. I will disappointed, but not shocked if they lose." Either way I hope to enjoy a beautiful day, I hope you and the shrinking brethren here at chatters do as well. 8)

I didnt mean you, but someone else posted this.

"As for those that want to doubledown that it is just a soundbite, well go ahead and step to the front of the line of delusional and out of touch idiots."


That is pretty hostile, and clearly intended at certain people with an opposing opinion. Therefore, retaliation is expected and warranted. Just making sure the blame here is on the right poster.

I'm beginning to think you have a crush on me Shineman, but I'm already taken. Married almost 30 years now to a beauiful lady and wouldn't give her up for anything, but I have the faith that you will find that right someone. Keep your chin up, it's going to be alright.

As for quoting me, you may want to go back and read the post in order that they are posted and you should be able to figure out who responded to who. My post at the top of page 2 follows the last post on page one. That may well be throwing you off, but anything on page one is before the first post on page 2. Just remember that 1 is before 2 and you should be able to get this.   

I do not believe you will ever grasp the mental concept of 'No one's underdog', but I do believe you can master this page 1 and 2 thing. Now go S-L-O-W and don't rush yourself, we have seen what happens when you rush yourself. I believe in you, just take your time.

RT, shut up. You're not my type, your not a woman, nor intelligent. I've got a wife, and she has more common sense than anything I've seen come from you. So I guess even if I do decide to switch sides, you're out of the question. Continue to run your pie hole,  because its allowed now, it doesnt make you anymore of an annoying horses ass than you already are. Be happy being a bitter old fella with nothing better to do than try and pick fights on a forum. I pity your family, it must be tough living with someone so devoid of substance. Have a good day ya little angry fella. Better luck next time.

Well looky here, it appears that I own a large section of real estate in that big empty head of yours. It is worthless swamp land that has been used as a toxic waste dump for decades, but owned none the less.

As for these anger issues you have, well I want you to know that I am here for you. I will be like your life coach. Whenever you have that urge to abuse someone, your wife or children or even a pet, well just stop and come here and vent. Vent at me, spew out some of your normal stupidity, just let it flow and hopefully your anger will subside.

But and this is a big but and very important, vent only at me. Do not and I repeat, do not vent at Mark or Larry because they will b*tch slap you right back into your hole. And Mark may even boot you off the site and then we will not be able to continue your therapy. I am very much looking forward to helping you change your life around there little buddy. Keep that chin up, you can do this.

Obviously you cant stop replying to me. Who is in who's head? Just shut up already, you are nothing but a keyboard warrior who wouldnt have half the mouth on him in real life. Focus on the post, and leave it be. I dont think anyone would boot me, as you're the jackass that started the name calling and came after me. If you cant handle the retaliation, gtfo. Damn you are annoying.
