Yeah this is just more BS. I posted most of the things cubez said awhile back after someone said GB backed into the playoffs.

I added the Miami game. If the official would have gotten the call right and not thrown the flag on Johnson for being lined up over center when he was clearly more than a yard back they would not have lost that game either.

I really don't mind it when the games that went in favor of GB are pointed out as long as they point out the ones what went against GB too.

The problem with this article is it lacks all the gifts which were given to Chicago to win the division starting with the joke win against Detroit. I still don't know why somebody with possession of the ball over the goal line has to not lose control of it going down. It is dfferent rules for WRs than RBs in my opinion.

Nobody had a horseshoe like the Bears this year.

Personally... it proves just how close the margin is in this league to winning it all and sitting an watching another team win it.

That isn't anything new.. just a very solid illustration of that point, IMO.


How is it solid? It's not even accurate. You can't change one outcome without having a domino effect. Surely you remember playing and how winning and losing effected you, your team and how your coaches coached.

The article is 'un' solid and comes off whimsical in my view. ;)

A thorough article would have outlined the what if's for the Packers as well. This just points out that basically the Packers were 'lucky'. I strongly disagree, the game is of inches, everyone knows this and the Packers have lost by inches and won by inches.

He's only looking at one side of the coin, and only glancing at it.

That always stumps me too ... so a guy can run in like rodgers or a rb and alls he has to do is be 1 cm over the line and its a TD; but a dude catching the ball has to hold onto it even when he is drilled and he cant let go of it even if he is hit by a mack truck.

Exactly, the Bears had how many injuries, home field advantage (-Falcons) and how'd that work for them? Not to mention the Lions game as just mentioned above.

King has a deadline and needed a story. Any story. He didn't care how accurate he was. Wasn't he a Favre-ite anyway? Like Madden, he probably is sore that GB won without ol #4.

How does it not illustrate that the margin between qualifying for the playoffs and not is oh so small?

A play here or a play there.. of course there is the totality of effects from that point out.. but I stand by my comment, the margin between winning and losing in this league is tiny.. and the Packers getting in based on a number of factors over two other teams with the same record and a accumulation of events that separates them.

And of course it doesn't outline all other factors.. King was trying to point out, IMO, that tiny margin between sitting home and getting into the playoffs and earning it from there.

"Whimsical" is a good word for it, and that's why it doesn't bother me much. It's not a stand-alone article anyway; it's just a little prelude to his weekly mailbag column. I haven't yet heard anybody discrediting the Packers for their championship, and that's not what this is.

By the way, Peter King predicted the Packers to go to the Super Bowl, and he was highly skeptical of year two of the Vikings' Favre experiment, so I don't see any evidence to support wpr's theory that King didn't want the Packers to win it without Favre.

I dont give too much credence to kings article - many many people picked the pack winning it all or going to the big game preseason. I didnt hear too much talk after we started suffering injuries thou.

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).
