Saturday night I had to force myself to sleep early because of how excited I was. Sunday, I was so excited (and nervous) I was pacing back and forth in the shower. The game started and Falcons drove down and scored. This was expected. Falcons script their first two drives better than anyone in the NFL. Mason Crosby missed a very make-able (my opinion) field goal. Falcons drive down and get 3 points on that short field. Packers drive down and Aaron Ripkowski fumbles (BTW, this was a great play by Falcons more than it was a bad play by Ripkowski) short of the goal line. I knew then this was not going to end our way and began the "acceptance" stage of defeat while still hoping for a miracle.

The game is over, the season is over and I say this sucks. This fucking sucks!

I read a lot of football and watch a lot of football (probably too much to be fair) and I've seen a few fans calling the Packers season a failure if it were to end without a Super Bowl ring. That's absurd and unreasonable, but I get it. It's just the Packers season was not a failure. It was exciting and did not end how we wanted. That happens for 31 teams every single year. This team played way above its talent and overachieved. Teams like (to name a few) the 49ers, Rams, Jaguars, Bears , Jets had failure seasons.

The Packers lost their best cover corner, Sam Shields. They lost their best running back, Eddie Lacy. They lost their 2nd and 3rd best corners. They had their 2nd best receiver dinged up most of the season. They had a quarterback who battled hamstring and calf injuries. The best running back on the team came into the season as a receiver. The big free agent signing tight end missed a good deal of the season. They finished the season with the best cover corner being someone who wasn't even drafted.

It goes on an on and quite frankly it's sickening how unfortunate the Packers were, but hey other teams had injuries too. It's not an excuse.

The season was pretty damn awesome. We humiliated the Seahawks. We beat the Cowboys in their place during the playoffs for the first time in 50 years. We finally beat the Giants at OUR place (whew) and I got to bring my girls there for an amazing experience. And when the team was 4 - 6 most, if not all fans lost hope, lost faith and somehow, someway the Packers got even the most negative assholes to believe they they could, they might just win the Super Bowl.

Yes, we measure success by Championships in Green Bay and by that standard the season was a failure, just like 31 teams every season.

As a Packers fan, I'm proud of what they accomplished when all things are considered. We now must hope for some changes because it's obvious from 2014 and this 2016 season that status quo is just not cutting it.

What's your one big change you'd like to see for 2017? Mine would be, can we get a defensive coordinator that forces form tackling and doesn't let his players have 7-10 yard cushions?

We've been home for probably 90 minutes and I'm still geeking out over the game.

While we were entering the stadium some Giants fan was shouting "we are gonna kick your ass, we have a better record here than you!". Some Packers fan next to me sheepishly goes "damn, he's right". I told him "and their HC Ben McAdoo was on the coaching staff for their two losses we had". The guy just smiled.

The temperate was 13° at kickoff. I saw that and looked at the girls and smiled. 13 is my lucky number. ;-)

Words cannot describe how incredible of a game that was to watch. It was just awesome. Aaron Rodgers truly is one gifted quarterback. Granted, through the first quarter, I wanted to punch him for missing Geronimo Allison and Aaron Ripkowski on separate plays that resulted in a sack, none the less, great performance.

When I watched Rodgers turn his back to the OL I clenched my fist said DAMMIT. The guy next to me looked puzzled because the play wasn't even over, lol.

When Jared Cook dropped the pass with :06 left the guy next to me was on the ball. He said good thing that was dropped, clock would have ran out. I didn't even know we burned our time outs! And the Hail Mary!! I freaked! I could't see Randall Cobb behind the group of players and then suddenly the crowd just ERUPTED! I was jumping and yelling while my daughter just looked at me smiling thinking "yah, thats my dad" lol. She looked happy to see me happy, if that makes sense.

I was saying to everyone that would list, "WE GET THE BALL TO OPEN THE 3RD!!! WE GET THE BALL AGAIN!!!"

The changing point from what I saw was the offense ran a lot more SLANT routes and the Giants DB's were always trailing.

That Clay Matthews sack fumble we in the stands were saying get the ball go get the ball!! lol

Why the hell did Damarious Randall keep running? I was so worried that someone was going to get a cheap shot on us. Did you notice Odell Beckham Jr helping up Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix after the interception? I wasn't expecting that.

Why did Mike McCarthy go for it on 4th down instead of punting? My God we were all shouting and screaming PUNT!!! lol

Christine Michael looks like a fast ass jitterbug in person.

Beckham was getting good separation, but when thrown to, dropped it a lot.

Randall Cobb, Davante Adams, Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix and of course Rodgers all had pretty damn good games. Can't forget Clay Matthews and Jake Ryan and the old man Julius Peppers! Freaking great game, just great!

I have it recorded too so I'll be watching it again.

I tried chiming in the Chat as much as I could, but I was kind of excited and it was hard to pull out the phone, lol.

I had my Camera fully charged and made sure it was all set up this morning and ready to go. We get to the game and I start taking pictures and get ready to record and keeps shutting off on me. I thought it was broke. Turns out, when I configured the settings this morning I didn't turn the damn thing off!! Agh.

I was bundled up!

Keiana's favorite part of every event.

The coin toss. The girl you hear, that's my oldest.

Wow, points for and against really tell the stories of where these two teams have been going this season. I'm figuring timely turnovers will likely determine the winner.
