A couple of things. If it were possible to play 82 games without dying and the Packers played 82 games, there are chances that they wouldn't have the best record. The Giants would most likely finish with a far better winning percentage than they had at 9-7. Having the best record in a sprint of a 16 game season is not the same as having the best record in a marathon of an 82 game season. Second, no one is saying that a cup is even as important as the PT. That doesn't mean that when you have the PT in your grasp you shouldn't want it, in addition to a cup.
