Bucks Diary

Packer fans will enjoy this

I don't usually do football, especially in the middle of a Bucks renaissance (well, defensive renaissance), but I assume there are many Antlerheads who are also Cheeseheads, so you may enjoy this post by Brian Burke of Advanced NFL Stats.

Burke basically argues that last season the luckiest team in the NFL was the 13-3 Green Bay Packers. This season the luckiest team is the New York Jets, while the 5-9 Packers are the unluckiest team.

Guess who the common denominator is between the two luckiest teams. Favrey Boy! Old Brett!

However, Burke argues that Favre is not the cause of the luck, but its a funny coincidence nonetheless.

I kind of pull for Favre, though I don't regret the Packers decision. I just didn't like how they went about it. Some of the things I've heard the Packers did to the old magician were a bit tacky (when he tried to enter the locker room for the first preseason game, they locked him out). So good for Favre that he brought a little magic with him to the Big Apple.

I think he's gonna need it...

Burke has also been quite critical of Favre in the past, arguing that he is given unwarranted credit for many yards that his receivers gain after the catch.

Anyway, the point is that he may not be an unbiased observer when it comes to Favre.

Blake... YOUR BACK!! You have commented in a coon's age! I thought you were pissed... you have to get in line for that...

Yeah, I like the Pack. But the Bucks are my thing. I always bitch when I go into Dick's Sporting Goods because they have a shitload of Packer, Badger, and Brewer gear... and then a little ass Bucks corner.

Pisses me off. Glad you're still a fan of the blog, though... we may be moving soon... more on that as it develops!!

Burke is just a contrarian. Favre's so idolized, he's an easy target. But Burke generally backs his arguments up with evidentiary logic, that's why I like his work... even if I can't understand half of it.

BTW, I have a theory on why Favre is so beloved... its sort of the same reason so many women loved Princess Diana. Didn't you ever wonder why that was? Women in this country simply adored her! What did she do to deserve that adoration? Nothing really. She simply fit perfectly the Kantian Archetype of The Princess... that's what women were responding to.

In the same way Favre fits perfectly the lost American archetype of "The Cowboy", the same archetype that made John Wayne so respected by men in this country (he's a Southern who had to adapt to Northern culture, he's often referred to as a "Gunslinger", he's aloof and uncertain, etc).
