Even though we’re only halfway through the season and the Green Bay Packers defense looks anything but championship caliber, some members of the team are openly discussing an undefeated season.
Cornerback Charles Woodson addressed the topic with Michael Silver this week.
“We can talk about it,” Woodson said, smiling. “I don’t care. We’re 8-0. We’d love to be 16-0 – love to. It’s a realistic conversation now. We’re halfway there. So yeah, let’s talk about it.”
“I’d love to go undefeated. I’d absolutely love to. Not just the regular season – the whole thing.”
So there you go. Someone has finally pointed out the white elephant in the room.
In fact, although he’s the only one who’s made a public statement regarding an undefeated season this bold, Woodson also said he and quarterback Aaron Rodgers have discussed the possibility.
Coach Mike McCarthy was predictably more low key, though.
“I think it’s very premature,” McCarthy said of such talk. “Once you get to double-digit wins, those type of goals become more in sight.”
While an undefeated season is still a long way off, we’ve always maintained that it might actually be beneficial for the Packers to lose a game or two, if for no other reason than to quell the hype and bring them back to earth.
Only two teams have completed an undefeated regular season in history — the 2007 New England Patriots and the 1972 Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins own the only perfect season in NFL history, so obviously the odds are against the Packers.
But now the cat’s out of the bag and we know it’s a goal.
Good or bad? We’ll see.
After all, the ultimate goal is to win the final game of the season. Nothing else really matters.
Well that seals it. We’re losing monday.
As much as I would love to see them go undefeated, I’d rather just win the Superbowl with an MVP QB. It may be better if we lose a game before the playoffs. The Giants game is going to be the most difficult for us but Monday could be a trap game for us as well.
If the defense can tighten up it’s over for the rest of the league. Rodgers can put up big numbers against any team in the NFL. I hope we will see some improvment over the next two home games. 10-0 at least.
Just don’t lose at home to the Minnesota Colostomy Bags.
Green Bay’s due to lay down an asswhoopin’. The next two weeks would be the best chance to do so. Especially on these vaginal secretion Assqueens.
at least he wasn’t a complete idiot to make some jackass statement that said he knows they’ll go undefeated. We all know how that works. Just ask the Eagles. They got the ball and they’re gonna SCORE.
Right phylum, wrong species. That would be Seahawks.
Shut up CWood. Let the collective American sports-talk consciousness decide when to start talking about it. Why don’t YOU have a talk with Morgan Burnett about coverage signals or something.
Nobody – except for the other 31 teams in the league that wants some “luck” in their life – goes into a game wanting to loose…..of course they want to win. The man is stating the obvious…
I think we can all agree, that he earned the right to tell the truth (notice he was one of the first ones to open his mouth up on people not playing their best??)
Besides; everybody will try to tear down the Pack this year – preassure will mount – because they are the “prom queen”….everybody wants to hump the prom queen….it’s just the prom queen in this case has A-Rod to defend her honour….that’s right; everybody else: suck your own nuts – GO PACK GO!
What pisses me off about talk like this is that if there’s ONE thing that’s going to stop this team from winning a second consecutive super bowl, it’s the play of their F’ing defense. I love CWood as a player, and he’s certainly smart enough to know what he’s doing, but dude, start backing up that talk with some ass kicking on the field.
One of the reasons our opponents are getting a shit ton of pass yards is because they are trying to keep up with A-Rod and the high flying offense. They are making desperate risky throws. Unfortunately the d-backs have to work some lead out of thier asses and make plays. If more pressure was on QB’s there would be less time to throw down field. Pressure the fuck out of that dipshit ponder and make him wish he was born a woman.
Isn’t going undefeated the goal of any team until they lose their first game?
Buddy: Ponder plays for the Viqueens…I’m pretty sure he already wishes he was born a woman…..
Laura: That’s right! And starting back in week 6….that’s about 31 teams in the NFL….
I read somewhere (might have been ESPN, but who knows…I was really bored) that no one expects the Pack go undefeated and they seem to think that he won’t beat Marinos records……..w.h.o. t.h.e. h.e.l.l. c.a.r.e.s! Only the championship counts.
Are you saying in week 6, there are possibly 31 teams that are still undefeated?
And I think its…..who.the.hell.cares!
…actually I answered her question….Isn’t going undefeated the goal of any team until they lose their first game”
…why yes – and only the Pack has been untainted since week 6.
About your second remark; who.the.hell.cares!……there, better?
: ) GO PACK GO!
