So jjoyce

Postby Goober McTuber » Tue Jan 26, 2010 5:25 pm

I have a question regarding this story:

http://www.thedailypage.com/isthmus/art ... c492354fc5

I read this...

First, let's get a read on Packers fans. Their team has won 12 NFL championships, four in the Super Bowl era.


And I can only remember 3 Super Bowl wins. Care to explain?

The number in the modern NFL (old NFL + old AFL) should be three, but the total is still twelve.

I think the obvious answer is he made an error. Or are you looking for a secret Superbowl win?

I think I was asking jjoyce to address the question. Perhaps he was thinking of Super Bowl appearances.

They also had two additional appearances in the NFL Championship game where they didn't win: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NFL_champions

Interesting to look at all those old team names. Where can I get a Chicago Staleys jersey?

Could be, since jjoyce is from the Twin Cities and we all know that the Vikings' record in the Super Bowl is 0 for life.

The truth is that I effed it up. I mean, I KNOW it's three. I've seen the trophies! But I think I had the number four on my mind due to that being the number of SB appearances from both the Vikings and Packers. Of course, the Packers are 3/4 while the Vikes are 0/4.

Hmmm...maybe Jason isn't Ned Flanders, after all.

Well, and that if you take away the Broncos' cheap shot at Gilbert Brown's knee they'd be 4/4.

Mike Shanahan is dead to me.
