Head coach Mike McCarthy has said that the team likes to divide the season into four quarters with games #1 through #4 representing the first quarter of the season, games #5 through #8 representing the second quarter of the season, and so on. What’s interesting about this is that if you look at the win-loss records of the Packers in each of these four quarters of the 10 seasons in McCarthy’s tenure as head coach you notice that the records are almost identical.
First Quarter (Games #1 through Games #4): 26-14 (.650)
Second Quarter (Games #5 through Games #8): 26-14 (.650)
Third Quarter (Games #9 through Games #12): 25-14-1 (.638)
Fourth Quarter (Games #13 through Games #16): 27-13 (.675)
