Packers agenda[edit]

I believe this paragraph should be modified or removed:

Using the Playoff Bowl (and loss) as motivation in 1965, the Packers won the first of three consecutive NFL championships from (1965-67. As of 2007, the Packers are the only NFL team ever to achieve this "three-peat" in the post-season era (which began in 1933). During this successful run, the Packers also won the first two Super Bowls in convincing fashion. In an ironic twist, Lombardi's final game (and victory) as head coach of the Packers was Super Bowl II, played in "hinky-dink" Miami's Orange Bowl in January 1968.

It is interesting and true, but this POV seems to take the spotlight off of the article's topic (The Playoff Bowl) and instead directs the reader's attention to the non-Playoff Bowl accomplishments of the Packers, which are well-documented elsewhere.--Son of Somebody 18:45, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

Recent article regarding the Playoff Bowl[edit]

I reaad an article on Mental Floss written by Alex Watt titled "The NFL Used to Play a Thrid Place Game, a "Losers' Bowl for Losers." The article actually cites the data used on the Playoff Bowl page, so I thought it was worth adding it as a citation. Comatmebro ~Come at me~ 20:45, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
