Packers lose in Overtime

44 posts in this topic

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.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
