    Once again you are 100% accurate. As a Packer fan it makes you wonder how many more Lombardi trophies the team would be hoisting if they could simply get there heads out of their asses. Brutal. Kind of makes you think fans of crap teams (such as the Skins) have it much easier because those teams simply have no chance. Oh how tortured it is to be a Packer fan…

    Come on Czabe. Dude, you are beating a dead horse. It’s not like if he returned the INT and got another 20 yards that the Packers were then GUARANTEED victory. Hell, even if he scored a TD the Packers were not GUARANTEED a victory. The only way you are guaranteed a victory is when you are ahead and the clock reads 0:00. The other 2 photos you posted were of plays that decided a game. This play was just one that was slightly questionable. He probably should have at least attempted to return the ball and get some yardage. But it was hardly the deciding play of the game. I’m not really sure why you have latched on to this one play as the definitive boneheaded play of the century.

      Peppers probably would have picked off the first lineman he saw. Russell would have got to Burnett, but not until at least the 40 or 35 yard line. Maybe Burnett drags Russell another 3-4 yards. That is getting very close to FG range. Or Rodgers could have smelled the endzone from there, and had the impetus to go for a TD.
      The major point is the coaching brain trust thought the Packers should hold their breath and tip-toe outta there once they had a lead.
      To me it’s not so much a matter of aggressive play calling, it’s a matter of smarter situational coaching that we seem to lack.

    Dear Santa,
    All I want for Christmas 2015 is for Mike McCarthy’s balls to drop…. and I hope mine drop by then too. You see, mine were kicked in by a buddy who is a Seachickens fan…he kicked me when Green Bay kicked the FIRST field goal. He kicked me again after the second field goal, and a real whopper on the third. At halftime, my buddy said Green Bay is going to lose because Coach M grabbed panties instead of big boy shorts, and EVERYONE knows Seattle owns the 4th quarter.

    Needless to say, I was got kicked repeatedly in the fourth quarter. This guy was so good at the smack talk that I had to ask him if he was a former Cowboys fan.

    If balls are not available, I will take Neuticles as a replacement.
