Vic refused to consider writing a book (and as far as I know, he hasn’t). Would any of you consider writing one? Fiction or non-fiction? “From Platteville to Pro Bowl: The Spoff Story” or “Hod: Older Than He Looks”? Has Larry ever mentioned writing a book? Or reading an audio book?

Coldest games? Aren’t you sitting in your cushy chairs in the heated press box? Hot dogs and popcorn delivered to you like King Louis XVI?
Delivered? Ha, if only. There are times we go onto the field pregame so that’s what Wes was referring to. The coldest non-Lambeau game I’ve ever experienced was Week 16 at Chicago in 2007. The wind off the lake was the most brutal I’ve ever felt on a football field.

The 2016 opener at Jacksonville. Bar none.

Barely predating the wild-card format, until we had success with Brett and I could move on, I often wondered what that ’89 team might’ve done in the playoffs as that wild-card team. With Majik’s magic, every game seemed winnable that year.
Actually the Packers’ only playoff chance that year, as it turned out, was as NFC Central champ, because they tied with the Vikings at 10-6 and both NFC wild-card teams (Eagles and Rams) were 11-5. Green Bay, which split its two games with Minnesota, lost the tiebreaker to the Vikings based on division record. But there was no stopping the Niners that year regardless. They…
