Packer DynastyA lot has been said lately about the Patriots’ “Dynasty.” It’s time to set the record straight and understand just how high the Packers set the bar for what a dynasty is.

First, lets take a look at the last ten years for the Patriots. The table below outlines, not only the years they made it to the Super Bowl, but how many points they were away from possibly reaching another Super Bowl.

Most Dangerous Substance on Earth - Packer Offense
Year Points Shy
1 2005  14 points away from the conference championship.
2 2006  4 points away from the Super Bowl.
3 2007 Made it. Lost.
4 2008  Didn’t make the playoffs.
5 2009  19 points away from the divisional round.
6 2010  7 points away from the conference championship.
7 2011 Made it. Lost.
8 2012  15 points away from the Super Bowl.
9 2013  10 points away from the Super Bowl.
10 2014 Made it. Won.

The Patriots were in the playoffs all but one year during this stretch of time, but they only played in three Super Bowls and they lost two of them. In this stretch, the Pats needed 69 points more just to move on in the playoffs.

Now let’s look at the Packers of the 1960’s and see how they compare.

Year Points Shy
1 1960 Made it!
2 1961 Made it! Won.
3 1962 Made it! Won.
4 1963 8 points away from the championship.
5 1964 8 points away from the championship.
6 1965 Made it! Won.
7 1966 Made it! Won.
8 1967 Made it! Won.
9 1968  Didn’t make the playoffs.
10 1969  Didn’t make the playoffs.

Let that sink in for a while. The Packers were 16 points away from being in every single championship game from 1960 through 1967 and they won five championships in that time.

Just some food for thought.
