Pack Attack: Super Bowl Power Rankings

Green Bay's 2010 Super Bowl squad rank 25th

Aaron Rodgers and the MASH unit known as the 2010 Packers joined three other Green Bay Super Bowl winners with their 31-25 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Using our NFL simulation engine we wanted to see how these Super Bowl champs would fare against the franchise’s other three championship rosters.

So we simulated the 2010 Packers in head-to-head competition with the 1966, 1967 and 1996 Green Bay teams 1,001 times.

2010 Green Bay Packers4816.517.2
1967 Green Bay Packers4215.217.8
1966 Green Bay Packers4014.917.3

Brett Favre’s 1996 season included him passing for nearly 3,900 yards, 39 touchdowns and only 13 interceptions en route to the Packers’ Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots. Even more remarkable is the team defense, anchored by Reggie White, which locked down teams to the tune of a meager 253 yards and 13.1 points per game.

Green Bay’s mid-1960s dominance may not be reflected in this simulation, but only because the statistical makeup of the Packers has evolved along with the game. Favre and Rodgers produced mind-boggling numbers when compared to Bart Starr and company. For those who preach “defense wins championships” and think the Pack’s 1966 and ’67 defenses are getting slighted, you could argue the 1996 and 2010 units were statistically similar.

We also simulated the 2010 Packers against the other 44 Super Bowl champions to see where they rank. Using our NFL Simulation engine, we created a round-robin tournament in which each team played the others 251 times to generate each team’s winning percentage and average score. Unlike a year ago when the New Orleans Saints tallied 25.6 points per game, the 2010 Packers could muster only 18.6. But thanks to a defense that allowed only 18.1 points., Green Bay won 51.1 percent of its games to rank 25th among Super Bowl champions.
