A week ago everyone on this forum was ecstatic that we beat the Bears, won the NFCN and just slipped into the play-offs.

One monday later and everyone is let down by the SF loss.

Of course you always play hard, play to win and all of that, but in hindsight, on the long run... I'm not really sure who won out in week 17.

Again, you always play hard, you can't predict what happens in the play-offs and you don't throw games, but we did give up 7 picks to one of our biggest rivals.

The difference between the 14th and the 21st pick is drafting a guy like Kouandjio, Nix or Hage or not getting any of those guys and falling into a part of the draft where there's no d-lineman worthy of a pick and a lot of OTs you have to take a gamble on like Sherrod or guys with lower ceilings like Bulaga.

What's the point of my story? Nothing big, really. Just that the Bears, in hindsight, won in week 17.

While part of me concurs with your questioning... the economic impact that bringing a playoff game to GB probably outweighs those 7 picks.

Not to mention.. if you get in, you might get hot and have a chance. We are a and have been a banged up team most of the season... couple that with a defense that still has issues surrounding it.. probably not realistic to think a run to the SB was coming.

Go to hell Rock. [grin1] I had the balls to bring this shit BEFORE the Bear game and got my chestnuts roasted by a bunch of doucebag assholes, figuratively speaking of course. Now you cowardice-like come in here after the playoff game and bring this up? I'm appalled and frankly you owe me an apology. [roflmao] [roflmao] [roflmao]

People way overrate a few spots in the draft. No a few draft spots is not worth sitting at home for the playoffs. Good teams draft good players no matter where they are at in the draft. There are a shit ton of good players that will be available in the 7 rounds we are drafting we just have to find them.

Agreed. Two of Seattle's probowlers in the secondary were selected in the 5th round. Collins, Jordy, Cobb were all 2nd rounders, CM3 was #26, below where the Packers are selecting this draft. I could go on, but it's the same story we all know.

I'll gladly give Chicago seven spots in the draft in exchange for the experience of watching Aaron Rodgers hit Randall Cobb on fourth-and-8. That's an all-time great Packer play.

I can understand your thinking... Losing in week 17 gives the Packers a better opportunity to pick the player highest on their draft board.

However.. There is as Pack93Z states the economic impact.. Great point.

Add to that..... Playoff week and atmosphere experience. For all of the kids this week the playoff atmosphere and experience they received is a big plus in 2014. If that experience helps them calm down, and focus better next year at the dance, it more than makes up for the drop on Draft Day.

My view on this still hasn't changed. We won week 17 and we won this week.


Even if I already knew the outcome of this 49ers game it wouldn't change anything. I still couldn't go back to last week and root for Kuhn to miss that blitz pick up or for cobb to drop that game winner. Wow, the excitement on that game winner. Damn. It sucks that the season had to end so soon.


The Packers lost by inches against the 49ers. If they were to win that game this forum would of been feeling better than ever.

I think like myself ... a few more weeks of packers football just seems to make the winter just that little bit more bearable ... Now what do I have to amuse myself with?
and like others ... Ill trade 20slots in the draft to the bears for the 'chance' of our team to hoist the trophy.

Fully agree.
With al due respect the OP is an idiot.

I second the motion on the "go to hell" part. It's just as lame and half-assed now as it was when Dakota said it. He may have shit for brains, but you, Rock have shit for brains AND shit for balls.

How the hell can that be with all due respect? Disagree with the post.. but it is far from idiotic.

Statements like this are typical of most message boards.. we are not a typical message board. Want to smack talk.. see the back alley.

Fair enough, my articulate friend.

I would like to, one more time, point out that I stated that this was in hindsight, after the 49ers loss and that I didn't want us to throw the game in week 17. Rodgers to Cobb was amazing and I would've loved to see us get hot in the play-offs like we did on our last SB run.

I do feel that there is quite a gap between pick 14 and 21, regardless of whether you can find some gems in the 2nd, 3rd or even the 7th round.

I have to admit that a big part of this is personal preference, as well. I'd rather watch the draft than 3 Packers games.

After reading his post the first time, I couldn't help think of my answer being "My girls won". Why? Because they got to attend a Packers Playoff game and it was their first ever Packers game. And yes, eliminating your rival ON THEIR FIELD in dramatic fashion? Schwing!

We appreciate candor, but lets try to be respectful of the welcoming trend that everyone here has an opinion worth hearing, regardless if we ourselves feel it is "idiotic".

While this might be true, however those same players projected in the early teens could easily fall to us.

The Bears have had earlier picks in 7 of the last 10 drafts. And we keep ending up picking after them year after year.

I apologize for calling the OP an idiot.

I should have said his post seemed completely idiotic to me instead.

Seeing Cutler and the Bears cry and go home was priceless, I really don't care about when we pick in the draft.

I won!!!!! I got to slap my jackass B-I-L around for another week. Had the bares won both games this year he would have been even more of a jerk that he normally is. In the end all I had to say is GB has been in the playoffs the last 5 years with a SB to show for themselves. HOW BOUT DEM BARES? They only made it once and GB eliminated them in one way or another 3 of the last 4 years.
