I disagree. It's all dependent on the situation.

The Patriots or Giants or Steelers or Packers can bring in a few asshats because they have established a winning culture with strong locker room leaders... whereas with some other teams, the Jets are prime examples, bringing in scumbags and selfish players leads to a complete breakdown of team chemistry.

Having a strong locker room and a culture of accountability keeps the shitbags in check.

yep. i remember in the mid 90's when the Packers had Reggie White. if there were any clowns or bad folks, they shut up in a real hurry because Reggie was the leader of the locker room.

it's all about that positive culture.

He'd have to go through another five year wait for the Hall then.

Don't do it Tuna! You should get into the HOF next year. Plus, you don't wanna be "that guy".

It does have me a bit worried about the team going soft come December/January.

can't believe the Cowboys were chosen to take on the Giants on opening night. imo, they missed a great opportunity to have the Packers come in and seek revenge. maybe the NFL just wants to ensure that the streak of reigning Super Bowl champs winning the opener remains safe.

this must mean that they have some other prime time game for the Packers for Sunday or Monday night.....maybe the 49'ers, Bears, or Saints.

top ten NBC sunday night football games by overnight ratings...

1. 1/02/12, Cowboys-Giants 17.1/27
2. 9/11/11, Cowboys-Jets 16.9/27
T3. 9/20/09, Giants-Cowboys 16.5/27
T3. 12/12/10, Eagles-Cowboys 16.5/25
5. 9/12/10, Cowboys-Redskins 16.4/26
6. 12/11/11, Giants-Cowboys 16.1/25


considering the giants-cowboys season finale had higher ratings than the packers-saints season opener... yea... hardly surprising that the league went with dallas. only thing that should be surprising is that nobody really brought it up beforehand, as it seems fairly obvious.

not surprising that it beat out the Saints-Packers considering that they are both small market teams. i think Giants-Packers would have had no problem shattering ratings considering the Packers' wide fan base across the country. i'd say the Saints brought the ratings down last year.
