Score two for the Cheeseheads

I read this at the Journal-Sentinel's Packers Blog

Last week, some of the folks at told Green Bay fans to "settle down" after the team's 2-0 start. The point was that it was way too early to suggest the Packers would be playing games in January.

This week, Don Banks offered the same reality check. He tells readers at that no one should be putting the Packers on a pedestal - just yet.

Says Banks: "The Packers may well be this year's Cinderella story, and their NFL-best seven-game winning streak dating to last season is a testament to how quickly coach Mike McCarthy has turned Green Bay's program around. But let's not coronate the 3-0 Packers just yet. The Eagles would have beaten Green Bay in the opener at Lambeau if they could have fielded a punt. The Packers' second-half in the Meadowlands was impressive, but the Giants defense isn't the ultimate test.

I didn't know the Packer's streak was the league's longest, but with Indy as the only other NFL team in the running, it isn't totally surprising.

The Badgers hold NCAA football's longest active winning streak of 13 games making Wisconsin 2 for 2.

I take no blame for any bad mojo this blogpost may cause.
