The other day, for some reason, it simply occurred to me that when Korey Hall plays, the Packers tend to win. Don’t know why this occurred to me but it did. So I did some research to see if this thought had statistical backing.
- 2009: The Packers are 6-2 so far this year when Hall has played
- 2008: During the Packers dismal 6-10 season, the Packers were 6-5 when Hall played
- 2007: During the Packers quality 13-3 season, the Packers were 12-2 when Hall played
- Total: The Packers are 24-9 when Korey Hall plays – compare that to their overall 27-17 record since he’s been here.
No, I’m not trying to make too serious a point here about the critical presence of Korey Hall. But I do believe that sometimes, there are certain guys who have a winning sort of aura about them – and perhaps Hall has that. Korey Hall’s winning legacy stretches back to college, when in 38 games over 3 years, he and his Boise State Broncos won an impressive 33 times – including the undefeated 2006 season that was capped off by the dramatic OT victory over Adrian Peterson’s Oklahoma Sooners.
Perhaps the key to our playoff run is quite simply Korey Hall playing in the remaining games.
