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.

hardrocker950 (8h) : Just wonderful - my pick em didn't register....
beast (17h) : I'm not sure if it's still true, but it used to be hard to get sacks on Eli because he'd toss one up when linemen got semi-close (which lead
Zero2Cool (18h) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (18h) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (18h) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (18h) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (28-Sep) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : . Aaron Rodgers has a completion percentage of 33.3 on 10+ air yard passes this season (tied for the lowest in NFL).
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : High-ankle sprain could sideline Cook
