Packers lose in Overtime

Recommended Posts

Scott M

Stunning.

I really feel for the Packers and specifically Brett Favre.

This is shades of Vikings-Atlanta on 1/17/1999. It hurts really bad. Overtime loss when favored at home. Lots of similarities

Best of luck to NY against NE in the Super Bowl is all you can say. A rematch of Week 17.

I can't wait for the commercials, I don't think the Giants will make much of a game. As much as I hate to say it, I really think the pack would have been a tougher matchup for the Patriots. eeeewwwww, I think I just tasted some throw up in my mouth.....yuk I just said something nice about the Packers.

One thing I did get from that game was the clarification on why I am glad the Vikes still have the dome. You can't tell me that that could be real enjoyable... sitting on each others laps with full winter gear on. I love the big marshmallow for that reason alone!

This doesnt compare to the loss to the dirty birds IMO. First off, we had 1 loss all year, our kicker hadnt missed all year, then he misses 2 short kicks. Plus, we had a shot to win the SB. Nobody is going to beat the Pats.

Superbowl, homeboy...

Did you see Coghlin's face? WOWEE! Get that guy a face mask. He looked bad on the field and then in the post game interview he looked even worse.

You are right, the Dome would be more comfortable on days like this. Nobody would get frost bite in there.

Yup, it was kind of suprising that the same guy who threw 5 int's against the Vikes didn't throw one all through the play-offs. I didn't think they would beat Dallas and I definitely didn't think they were going to go into Lambeau and beat the Pack. I was amazed. I really thought the Pack was going to smoke them, especially in the frigid weather. Goes to show what I know crazy.gifgrin.gif

As a Bear fan I was happy to see it happen. Pretty high scoring for the weather though. I just think they abandoned the running game too soon, too many 3 and outs. In weather like that you have to run, run and run some more. As for the dome, I like the elements. I've spent many a Sunday in 0 to sub-0 in Soldiers Field and wouldn't trade one. Next thing you guys are gonna build a dome for Ice Fishing. lol.

Oh well, Try again next year. I wouldn't say the Giants were the better team, but they were the better team yesterday. Still a pretty good season for the youngest team in the NFL.

What were the Pack/vikings scores again??????

Surprisingly, Eli was the better quarterback last night. Farve looked like he was freezing his butt off while the cold didn't seam to bother Eli.

Coughlin should do a commercial for Vaseline as I think he had about a whole jar of it on his face.

The talented Eli came to play last night, and that was the key difference in the game. If the stumblebum Eli had shown up, the result would have been different.

For all the celebration about the cold weather advantage for the Pack, the weather didn't seem to give either team a worse time than the other.

The Pack wasn't going to beat New England anyway, but one more win sure would have been a great cap to a wonderful comeback season for Brett Favre.

That was a tough loss, and I wish the G-Men luck on the 3rd. It seemed to me that the Packers got away from what had been working all season. Where were the 10 yard crossing routes? Where was the running game? Why was the screen not working? Where were the hard hitting CB's?

Maybe they saw something on film that led them to believe those little flare passes could work or they needed to give Burress 8-10 yards to get off the line. Sure wish the outcome would have been different, but we do have the youngest team in the NFL and will be contenders again next year, Favre or not. Go Pack!

The Giants have a better chance to win the Super Bowl, being they are not playing at home....

The Giants D stopped the short passing game and the run. Favre tried to be the hero on some poorly thrown balls.

The Giants messed up a lot too. If they wouldn't of, it could have been worse for the Pack. But, a loss is a loss.

The Pack and the Vikes both have young teams. I just hope Brett doesn't keep his name in the news with "Will I retire or not". Just say "yes" or "no".

But, it could be the gutter for both teams next year. Just look at the Bears....

I don't think anything that went on yesterday was a surprise. It wasnt a surprise that the pack couldnt run the ball against a good run defense. It wasnt a surprise to see Burress go off. Al Harris is a good corner but he is not shut down corner. He looked lost yesterday just as he always does against superior recievers. Shut down corners don't get picked on and thats what went on yesterday. It wasnt a surprise that the giants won. I mean there about as good on the road as any team has ever been. And i'm sure i'll get crucified for this but i sent my friend a text message at halftime saying a Favre INT would give the game to the giants. The guy is a great QB but lets face it, his MO in the last 10 years worth of playoff games is INT's and the lack of ability to lead his team to victory. How many opportunities in the 4th quarter and overtime did he have to rise up and take his team to Arizona?

Get the guy a face mask. He look like he had frostbite before the game even started.

Its a bummer to see the Pack loose. Putting aside my deep hatred for them I would love to see a NFC north team make it.

Then to my other point, how in the world did the G men make it all the way. Anyone also notice that after Shockee got hurt Manning seemed to get better. He was his "Go to" man and after you get him out of there he has to go to other guys.

Oh well, lets hope the better team wins.

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!
    • Bigfatbert
      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated
    • JBMasterAngler
      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.
