    New Orleans is all around the more complete team.

    The problem with New Orleans... They already lost a shutout with the Packers... And have lost two other games.

    That is why I cannot say they are a better team than the Packers because there has been no obvious improvement as the season went forward.

    They are good, no doubt... But I have them just a hair below a healthy Green Bay team.

    No they didn't. The Pack escaped with a 42-34 victory, far from a "shutout". Since then the Packers have remained consistent, at best. Their offensive line is so-so; their receivers drop too many passes; their defense is porous. New Orleans has improved since that week 1 loss.

    I think he meant shootout.

    That's a couple letters away from just a typo. ;)

    Autocorrect can be a weird thing. shotout autocorrected to shutout maybe?

    Autocorrect? Doubtful. He's a Packers fan. They're not know for their intelligence. !rolling

    Not a Packers fan... But not a hater. I have been forced to use my iPad for the last month... And the autocorrect on the DBSTalk app leaves a bit to be desired, especially since I type way faster than the iPad can keep up.

    I did indeed mean shoot out... Not shutout.

    The larger point being, I could see either team having an equal chance in a rematch... Thus I could not say one team was obviously better than the other based on games thus far... In fact, Atlanta still could win their division if they beat New Orleans tonight and chips fall their way next week... So New Orleans still has some work to do.

    The Lions/Packers rematch is this weekend. Any Cheeseheads wanna make another wager with me?

    Why would anyone make a wager with someone who routinely backs out of the losing bet?

    WTF are you talking about? I didn't back out, ask Scott. The agreement was I had to have the Packers logo in my avatar and Go Packers in my signature for a month. I kept my end of the bargain.

    I remember someone telling me to hire a lawer if I wanted all the loopholes taken out. (something to that effect.)

    No you didn't honor the bet.

    The game is meaningless and has no impact for the playoffs. Detroit will get stomped in the 1st round anyway.

    Pretty much the way many folks see it, including the NFL Network and ESPN commentators.

    Still...happy for the Detroit folks to make the playoffs for the first time since electricity. :D

    If people had learned anything from the past 3 years in particular...the playoffs are an entirely new season - almost anybody can beat anybody.

    Should be interesting times.

    It matters to Detroit. And Detroit may play the Giants in the first round, which eliminates the possibility of them getting stomped....unfortunately.

    Whoever plays Detroit will beat them, unless the sorry Cowboys get in.

    Living in NY, I see a lot of the Giants. They are terrible the past 7 weeks. I don't think they can beat the Lions right now. Heck, if Romo is healthy I don't think the Giants can even beat the Cowboys.

    I watch them every week (they're one of the four teams I follow), too, but I wouldn't say it's been a terrible 7 weeks. It's been a typical NYG 2nd half of a season... inconsistent. :lol: They should've beat the Packers, they handled the Jets, beat a Romo-healthy Dallas, only lost by 1 TD to a resurgent Philly team & tough 49ers team.
