great collection there. i’m absolutely flabbergasted that grant is the #9 back in the league average-wise right now. does he have incentives in his contract? think of what our running game could be if mccarthy called 25-30 running plays per game.
here are two more stats i found:
– if brett favre wins an mvp and a superbowl, 38% of packer fans will end it all, 93% will vomit all over their new shoes, and 29% of favre-detractors will claim they supported him all the way, buy a #4 jersey, go out into the backyard with it and rub dirt on it so it looks at least 24 months old.
-if brett favre wins an mvp, throws 59 touchdowns, has a passer rating of 154.45, but contributes to his team’s failure to achieve a superbowl win in ANY WAY – 85% of packer fans will be just fine with that. if he outright loses a playoff game for his team, packer fans will (rightly) give new meaning to the word ‘smug.’
