The Pack also should thank the refs in the first Vikings game - they blew a couple TD calls that should have been in favor of the Vikings (and I'm not talking about the late Harvin TD that was correctly reversed).


What TD calls? And how do you know the Packers couldn't have overcome it? I can think of Shiancoe's, but by rule, it was not a catch. Unless I'm remembering incorrectly.

Actually league officials admitted afterward that the Shiancoe TD should have been ruled a catch:

There was also a TD to Quarless where he bobbled the ball.

You're right, the Pack still could have overcome those, but then maybe they wouldn't have...

As has been said over and over it doesn't matter. Go look at any team and over the 16 game season you will find a play or two that changed the outcome of a game or two.

GB had more than their share of bad breaks/bad calls that figured into the outcome of their losses.

Upon further review, the ruling on the field stands and GB is still the SB champs. No one. NO ONE gave them anything. They did not back into the playoffs. They do not owe a debt of gratitude to Detroit, Eagles, Tampa, New York, Chicago, Minnesota, The other New York, Washington, Dallas, San Francisco, KC, Houston, Atlanta, New Orleans, New England, Miami, Arizona, St Louis, Denver, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Tennessee, San Diego, Indy, Buffalo, Baltimore, Carolina, Cleveland or Cincinnati.
LA for not having a franchise or Mother Teresa.
Jacksonville- ok yes they do. Just wanted to see if you were still with me.

I'm not right, I don't know the Packers would have overcame it or not. I just don't like the whole hindsight thing of "ooh this call there, that call this" because it's just not that simple. Game plans are fluid. You call a different game when down by 10 than you do when you're down by 3. Maybe that score gets them over confident? Maybe it GIVES them enough to dominant? I don't know, I do know the Packers won and that's the only thing matters.

I'm all for the what if game, although, it has to be reasonable. The only game that could be changed by one play, I feel, was the Redskins game. IF Crosby makes that kick, game over.

One of the things I admire about football, are all the different possible endings and how you just never know ... its over. Hell, in the Super Bowl, I was full of racked nerves during the kneel down. Remember Herman Edwards? That kept going over and over in my head. It was the longest minute of watching football in a long time.

Zero2Cool (1h) : Capers presser summed up? INjuries are why we suck. (shut up, coach and adapt)
Zero2Cool (1h) : nearly crapped myself hearing dom capers talk, forgot to close the tab after mccarthy haha
Zero2Cool (2h) : McCarthy said the communication was not good enough on defense yesterday. Injuries in secondary have complicated substitution patterns.
Zero2Cool (2h) : McCarthy again says "I believe in him"... sorry, BS, we saw how you believe in him yesterday.
Zero2Cool (2h) : @The_Green_Gold Highest graded players Kenny Clark & Blake Martinez. It wouldn't be possible to grade an entire defense
Porforis (2h) : Well, it WAS clean until someone 'shouted' in it...
Zero2Cool (2h) : QB Brett Hundley when targeting a WR against Saints: 6-for-15, 54 yards.
