Commercial real estate firm Jones Lang LaSalle happens to have an executive chairman by the name of Roger Staubach.

Yes, that Roger Staubach.



According to Chicago Breaking Business, JLL "looked at vacant office space in team’ cities since 2000 and found that in seven of the cases, the team whose city had higher office vacancy rates brought home the Lombardi Trophy," and created something called the "Office Vacancy Index."

They continue:

"For instance, in 2006, the most recent year that the hypothesis held true, Pittsburgh’s office vacancy rate was 15.9 percent, compared to 10.5 percent in Seattle; the Steelers outscored the Seahawks 21-10 that year.

"So what about this year? Just over 12 percent of office space is vacant in Pittsburgh compared with almost 19 percent in Green Bay."

Staubach is quite sure of the power of the Index, and isn't mincing words regarding Sunday's game.

“You can mark my word, the Packers will prevail,” Staubach said.
