Even though Brett Favres first game with the New York Jets drew a big audience in the Milwaukee market, the final national rating for the game showed there was no wide interest in Favres game, despite much media fanfare going into it.

Even though the preliminary rating was up for the Jets game at Miami, the final rating for the regional game (9.4) was the same as it was for CBS package of games in the early window last season. The network did get some unexpected competition from the NASCAR race in Richmond, which was bumped from Saturday night into Sunday afternoon on ESPN.

And it wasnt as if the Jets-Dolphins game was a blowout. It was settled on the last play.

Jets-Dolphins went to 63% of the nation, the same percentage that is to get the New England Patriots at Jets on Sunday. Milwaukee is among the markets getting Patriots-Jets.


This surprises me. I assumed this would have been the most watched game in the history of season openers.

I know I watched every second of it.

Fail. Only on that game though. The rest he can win. Better pick for us.

Weird. What the hell is wrong with people?

That's proof that the communists are doing something with our drinking water. Told you so.

I think that people who watch football on Sunday afternoons are going to watch it no matter who is playing, for the most part. It's a pretty static audience. It's the night games where a marquee matchup or star player can draw in a lot of extra viewers. Also, the Dolphins are a bad team, which didn't help matters. Nobody goes out of their way to watch the Dolphins these days. I saw a lot of empty seats in the stadium.

TheKanataThrilla: He's better than what we currently have backing up AR.
Smokey: A backup what, bartender ?
TheKanataThrilla: Looks like Manziel is getting cut. I'd be interested in him as a back-up.
Zero2Cool: Dunno.
Smokey: WILL WE HAVE A SB "CHAT", Zero2Cool ?
Mucky Tundra: I wonder if Stat Padford will follow Johnson to the retirement center?
uffda udfa: Winston Moss has a better all time win % than MM at 1000%. Let's make this permanent. :)
uffda udfa: We should take note and realize our Jordy might not be Jordy at 31 this season.
uffda udfa: I think Detroit has a way of doing that to players.
Zero2Cool: Calvin is retiring at age 30, just like the great Barry Sanders.
uffda udfa: He'd be 31 just like Jordy but his body is done.

Zero2Cool: Contest winners are sent a Packers related prize. It's not huge, just a token of appreciation so-to-speak.
Smokey: Prize ?
Mucky Tundra: Oh! I thought for a minute it got lost in the mail
Zero2Cool: Your prize. I feel bad. It's just been so chaotic with personal life and work stuff and my girls. I need to clone myself! lol
Mucky Tundra: No problem Zero! (Psst, what are we talking about?)
uffda udfa: We aren't going to go 19-0 for 4 straight seasons with this regime! I fully believe there's one that could get us closer.
Zero2Cool: Mucky, I haven't forgot. Just been really busy. Hopefully this weekend.
Mucky Tundra: Only four undefeated seasons? Such low standards!
Zero2Cool: .. or in SOME folks eyes ... go 19 - 0 four seasons in a row, nothing less is acceptable with potential HOF QB at helm. :massiveEyeRoll:
nerdmann: To become a truly GREAT coach, Mike needs to learn how to put other teams away.
uffda udfa: MM has always been secondary to my concerns as to what's wrong in Green Bay. Now, it appears he's speaking out just like guys like Dakota a
uffda udfa: Yup.. George Seifert and Barry Switzer won SB's. Do you honestly think MM is a great head coach? No need to cite any stats...just your op
