AARRRGGGG!!!!!!!

The Packers better get their heads out of their butts or their season will be over.

Missed tackles, 3rd and long - rushing only 3 and still allowing a completion for the first down? Fumbles galore. It should be 20-3 at the half instead of 20-10.

I wish we had Manning in Dallas. He's taken some shots today and still comes out swinging.

Packers were getting very lucky before that hail mary to end the half. That fumble that wasn't called a fumble was huge. Cost NYG 7 points. My brother's a big Packers fan, living in Wisconsin, but I have to root for the Giants in this one. Would give my Niners homefield next week.

Eli is impressive under pressure for sure. He can still get rattled though and make poor decisions. I haven't seen much of that from Rodgers.

So I'm still riding high from the Niner win yesterday. Wish I had recorded it so I could watch it a few more times.

On another note, my wife hasn't talked to me since (Saints fan). laugh

Too much time off for Rodgers? Not surprised they lost to the Giants, but the way they lost.

If it was up to the BCS the Packers would be in the Super Bowl.

The Packers must have taken lessons from Chicago. They SUCKED!

I think the officials wanted them to win the way they were throwing calls and penalties in their favor. I don't even think the first string of the GB Packers showed up to the game.

It seems lately that every team that has done well in the regular season, and has had time off before the playoffs, tanks in the playoffs.

The Pats took a break and man did they look good. I dont have a dog in this fight anymore but predict NE to win it all after watching game sat. Of course Giants beat my falcons and history shows beating falcons in playoff is spring board to the sueprbowl. Remember it is not neccesarily who is best team for season just who is best time in Jan. Omaha Niners game was one of the best games ever to watch when I did not care who wins.

The refs do not call playoff games the way regular season games are called. They let them "play" so to speak.

No segue. Back in the mid-eighties there was a great couple of Sports Illustrated lines about the Bears-LA Rams playoff game. The writer said, "you gotta understand what this means for the fans. If the Rams lose, so what, the fans grab some sushi on the way to the beach. If the Bears lose, it's back to WINTER." So it is with GB. Sorry about that.

Yeah, but Chicago is used to having losing teams. Look at the Cubs! laugh

I grew up on the South Side of Chicago, so I can pick on them. wink

I could ride my bike to Marquette Park or Midway Airport to watch the planes. No barrier fences then, just chain link and blast diverters at the end of the runways.

It all depends on how motivated they are on any given day.

Remember the old saying; It's not the size of the dog in the fight but the fight in the dog that wins.

Out of the 32 NFL teams, there are only about four or five elite quarterbacks that play well most every game. The only one I see left is Tom Brady. I would have to put my money on him and the Pats to take it all.

Pats are the one team I don't want to go to the SB. I prefer to see a defense in the big game instead of a 5000 yard passer.

There is NO defense for a perfectly thrown pass. Ask the Broncos who had a pretty good defensive squad.

I know. I certainly love to see some scoring, yards and big plays too. But it was too much this season. Outrageous scoring and yards. What, two QBs broke Marino's record that stood since '84, in the same season? Defenses are handcuffed now and this has resulted in inflated numbers. 300 yards used to be a great game. These guys eclipse that nearly every week. How much longer till we have guys putting up Arena Football numbers? I understand that touchdowns put fans in the seats. Guess I'm more of a purist than I thought I was.

Pretty soon it'll be flag football.

Personally, I think they should get tougher on the blatant illegal things (like stomping someone on the ground) but get away from the petty stuff.

Come on, when you're making millions of dollars a year, what's a $20 to $50 thousand dollar fine going to do? If the player is suspended for a few games, do they lose their pay for those games?

It was primarily to protect the quarterback, and rightly so. Troy Aikman and Steve Young have over 20 concussions between them. It's not right to put them (QB's) at further risk.
