Only one word can describe that game.....EPIC!!!
That was one of the single greatest games I have ever witnessed. I have been watching the highlights on several different sport shows, and all I keep hearing is how bad the officials were. They act like the cards were the only ones getting away with anything. The helmet to helmet on Rodgers in OT was no doubt a missed call and the face-mask everyone is talking about makes for a good debate, but if you watch the game again, the Packers got away with a lot of stuff too. They honestly could have called them for holding every play, and we literally had to get tackled to finally get a call (and it took until OT for that to happen). I understand that they could call holding on almost every down in every NFL game, but these were blatant and often kept us from getting a sack. Also LSH was called down when his knee never touched, and he could have turned it into a lot more yards because the Packers thought he was down even though the whistle didn't blow until he started to run again. Meanwhile Jenning's (I think it was Jennings, but correct me if I'm wrong) knee touched down and he was able to get up and run it all the way down to the 5 yard line. Also some of PI no calls on both sides of the ball were questionable, especially the offensive side of the ball (their receivers were pushing off a lot). I understand that Packers fans are upset and I would be too, but on the contrary to how ESPN is portraying it, the bad calls went both ways.
Maybe it is just me but I feel like they should be talking about Warners incredible performance, and Doucets breakout game. Not bad calls and Jennings individual performance (Those two catches were sick though). I mean all they said about that ridiculous one handed catch by Fitz for a TD was that it should have been offensive PI, meanwhile they were praising Jennings for every little thing he did. Maybe they are just bitter that they won't have their precious Favre vs. Packers match-up for the NFC Championship, but I guess it doesn't matter because we are moving on to New Orleans where we will continue on our quest to Miami for a SUPERBOWL WIN!!!
I would love to here what you guys think, because maybe I am just crazy and I am just ranting for no reason.
By the way, this is my first post and the only reason I did it is because one of my friends is a die hard Packers fan and she said that we played dirty and the refs let us get away with it. That kinda pissed me off, then with ESPN not showing us any respect (whats new though) I had to take out my frustrations on all the lovely people at ROTB :). Anyways, I hope you enjoyed reading this and GO CARDS!!!
