I don't know how this author can base this article these so-called facts. I think he is full of it. I laugh at the fact that he say's we the fans are responsible for Vick running all over us in our first home playoff loss. And the fans let Moss catch pass after pass during the infamous Mooning game. I guess I missed the memo that let the fans play during actual games.

Here is my reply to him.

Ask any fan of the Green Bay Packers about what team nation among the NFL sea of fandoms is the best and I bet 99.999 percent of those asked will obviously point to the Packers. Yes, Packers fans as old as I have lived through the glory of the 1960, the ineptitude of the 1970s [...]

The decline of home field advantage in the playoffs the past decade isn't just a Green Bay thing but a league wide trend really. New stadiums designed to pack as many people in them tend to be more open with noise not traveling well and numerous television timeouts do a lot to kill crowd noise and the crowd impact on the game.

Odd he mentions the Giants game but ignores the Seahawks game the week before that when GB fell behind early off of Grant's fumbles or the OT game vs Seattle. As far as losing to the Falcons, I seem to recall GB having a ton of injuries that year and being burned out before the playoffs (like getting annihilated at the Jets two(?) weeks before).

I am not appalled by this article because I know the Green Bay Packer's fan base is considered top 2 with the Steelers. It should be interesting to see how many people get upset over this though.

I don't mind someone having an unpopular opinion but the guys reasoning and explanations are pretty weak and lame. The article just screams attention grab.

Maybe people perceive our fanbase as being entitled just like the Patriots fanbase for example. Well if that means we win a lot and expect to win a lot in the future, then I am all for that!

The problems we've had at home in the playoffs the last decade or so stem from two factors:

1: Favre being blackmailed to throw games in the playoffs.

2: Mike's emphasis on building a "finesse" team to take advantage of the league emphasis on highlight reels and scoring.

Nothing to do with fans.

When people spell NFL as N.F.L. ... they lose all trace of credibility.

I think it was the mobs blackmailing Mike into throwing the games.

Packers fan base is number one, throughout the world. Some others change with the winds of the win-loss records, but Packer fans are the bomb, on this planet. Don't believe media hype for one moment.

We surpassed the Cowboys a few years ago, thanks to their continued suckage.


Gleen Bay Packa!

As heard in Vietnam. lol

It would amaze you brat, beer, cheese-doodle-whatever, suckin' sod-busters. Packer fans are everywhere!

BEHOLD the power of cheese!
