Green Bay Packers fans are no stranger to horrible takes from Colin Cowherd. The controversial sports commentator, or analyst, or whatever you want to call him, has always had it out for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. As a result, he has said numerous things that go against common sense when it comes to Green Bay. Earlier this month, he had a take that might rank up there with the worst of them.
The Green Bay Packers are the NFL Version of the Wisconsin Badgers
Colin Cowherd is not a Packers fan, we all know that. Earlier this month, he made a ridiculous comparison and prediction about the team. In short, he compared them to the Wisconsin Badgers. For years, Wisconsin has drawn criticism for being good enough to compete, good enough to win its division of the Big Ten, but not good enough in big games. The Packers, according to Cowherd, are a similar type of team. They can win their division, but cannot get through to the Super Bowl.

Does Cowherd Have a Point?
Colin Cowherd is right about one thing: the Packers have struggled to get the Super Bowl. They also have won their division eight times in the last 11 years. However, comparing them to the Wisconsin Badgers is a very flawed argument.
The Wisconsin Badgers, of course, are nowhere close to being an Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, or Georgia like school. That being said, they are plenty better than most other college football programs. The Green Bay Packers, on the other hand, are consistently ranked as one of the top teams in the NFL. Yes, they have not gotten to the Super Bowl in over 10 years. However, at this moment in time, there is no single NFL team that is head and shoulders better than them.
Colin Cowherd also said Joe Burrow would be a disaster in the NFL. Let’s not put too much weight into his “logic.”
