And expecting a team to blow someone out week predicated on your opinion of their talent is absurd. This is not Madden. It's easier to get up when you're the team that has nothing to lose versus a team that is expected to walk away with an easy win.

His teams, unlike MM's teams, did not shit themselves regularly.

Mike McCarthy has one of the best winning % in football since he became a head coach. They do not "shit themselves" regularly you are being overly dramatic and your definition of "shit" certainly needs a readjustment.

So where is the "good" team that has blown out everyone else this year?

You don't have to blow every team out. All I'm asking for is consistency.

Packers have consistently scored more points than their opponent four weeks in a row. I suppose you want them to have more yards, first downs and less turn overs too before you're happy?

If they played up to their ability and still lost, I'd be happy.

That would be da Bears. Besides the Panthers game where they barely put up a W and the loss to us, they've blown out everyone else.

51-20 over the struggling Titans
41-3 over the Jags
23-6 over the Rams
41-21 over the Colts

They're blowing out teams they should blow out.

I'd LOVE to see a blow out against someone. Hasn't happened yet this year.

GB has beaten two 7-1 teams decisively. I'll take that over only blowing out bottom feeders. With all the injuries to significant players right now I'll take wins. As long as you make the playoffs how you played week to week in November means absolutely nothing.

Look at all the teams that have been winning the Superbowl (which is the point). Pretty much none of them were super consistent during the year, that's the way the NFL works. I know Packer fans like to think that the players on their team are significantly better than everyone else and they should destroy every team they face but in reality there are not huge talent discrepancies from team to team. The only thing that matters about the regular season is making the playoffs.
