Mocking The Packers' Ability To Lose

From Football Outsiders:

Customer Service

SALES REPRESENTATIVE: Creative Losses Incorporated, this is Maggie speaking. How may I help you?

COACH: Hey Maggie, this is Mike McCarthy...

MANAGER: Since you are playing the Bears in Chicago on a Monday night in December, we have the following suggestions. You could lose on a kickoff return touchdown after a game-tying field goal. Or, you can lose because a fumble gets away from one of your frostbitten players in the snow. Finally, there's fog. Are you interested in losing a game in the fog?

And in conclusion:

Pick: It's impossible to pick the PACKERS to win anymore, but they usually lose by three or four points, they are likely to cover a four-point spread.
