Got a question for those of you who saw the game on TV. The final 2 point conversion attempt was ruled out of bounds. The replay on the Tundervision sure looked like he was in.
Did anyone mention why there was no review of the play?
We figured no one wanted injuries in an overtime preseason game.
Did they not think he was forced out?


Now I haven't seen it so I'm only speculating here, but the 'force out' rule is no longer in effect in 2008. The only penalty is if the defensive player carries the offensive player out of bounds. Otherwise, they need both feet inbounds.


I knew the rule had changed but I did not know the scope. It's a good thing we GB "forces" the other player out of bounds but not hwn it happens to GB.

I saw the play, and the replays, and it was very clear that he only got one foot in bounds. The second foot was a good foot or two out of bounds. What made it deceptive was that the end zone had a weird paint job with slanted white lines that made it hard to tell where the sideline was at first glance. The defender did push him a little, but as TheEngineer said, there is no longer a force-out rule, so that didn't matter.

Thanks Greg. I do remember seeing those dumb slanted lines and trying to figure out which one was the sideline. Unlike TV, they only showed it once and cut the feed as soon as they could. The angle of the camera also made me wonder if his right knee was down but I figured that was just an illusion.

GoPack1984 (4h) : Dismal season? I think that's too harsh.
uffda udfa (4h) : Packers should have never been 4-6. Dismal season.
GoPack1984 (4h) : ...with the current defense.
GoPack1984 (4h) : Good season. Great rebound from 4-6. Would have loved to have seen them go to the Super Bowl and win, but I don't know if that was realistic
uffda udfa (4h) : •thanks Shakespeare.
The_Green_Ninja (4h) : Mike at the end of the day is with the team every day and knows what is needed and not needed. Don't be surprised if Mike helps push the cha

uffda udfa (4h) : Nobody has ever lost a championship game by as big of a margin as us. Title Town revolt.
uffda udfa (4h) : Did I hear wrong or was that the biggest beatdown in championship game history? Nice.
Nonstopdrivel (4h) : ndedly fill in all the holes on the roster.
Nonstopdrivel (4h) : I do get the same sort of complacent vibe from the Packers front office that cost Bill Polian his job. You can't rely on the QB to single-ha
The_Green_Ninja (4h) : Thomas Brady has been given tools his whole career. It's up to the Packers to start doing the same.
The_Green_Ninja (4h) : As much as I loved brett, Aaron is right. We need more tools and HE is the QB that deserves the tools

shield4life (4h) : Blame the coaching
The_Green_Ninja (4h) : This is near the same time Brett started saying the same stuff.
uffda udfa (5h) : That is exactly what Aaron is saying. We don't do what needs to be done to win. Same song over and over.
uffda udfa (5h) : Aaron is a troll and a hater and doesn't understand the game. Who is he to say such things?
Zero2Cool (5h) : Probably reading into it wrong, but I think he's saying to front office. Do. More!
Zero2Cool (5h) : Rodgers says "We just gotta make sure we're going all-in every year to win....we can take a big step this off-season"
