Firecop, I'm here.....I had to take a couple days to soak it all in. My hats off to the Giants, they were certainly the better team THAT day, which is all that matters. The Packers' two biggest veterans, Favre and Harris, both sucked big-time and McCarthy's play-calling was horrendous. Any given Sunday, baby. Go Giants!!! Boy, the Brewers AND the Packers choking in the same year! Arrrgghh!!!!!!!!!

What do teachers and high school football coaches have in common? - They're both overpaid ! !

But he isn't any other player. He's the quarterback, the one player every win or loss is going to be focused on, whether it's warranted or not. It just seems Romo is still a bit immature and too determined to prove to people he'll do whatever he wants to do, regardless of what anyone thinks (especially the media). I fully expect he wants to win badly, but at this point I think he's caught up in being a big-name celebrity, whether he's dating Carrie Underwood or Jessica Simpson. Making the choice to stay home, rest up, and at least give everyone paying attention (which is obviously a great many people) the impression he's focusing 100 percent on football, would've probably been a better choice for a guy who's final portion of the season sucked. - dyams You're pretty tough on a guy whose only played what, 27 combined NFL games? The kid's plain got it....give him time already. Everybody wants it right away, and you certainly are no exception. You think the '07 'Boys are the only team to almost get there? As a PackFan whose team has arguably the most upside for the foreseeable future, I'm pretty sure the Cowboys will be right up there with the Pack for awhile in the NFC until the next cycle. But you gotta enjoy the ride... (your welcome rcade :) )

rcade, you're right! that was firecop's comment, my bad (i shoulda known!) To your point, any team is capable of losing at home, but this ain't ought2 or ought4. The past is always the past.

I think SD vs. GB for the SB is good, but it would be a home game for the Chargers. (Joe188) Maybe in Bizarro world it is. Packer Nation travels like no other, they also spend the coin to do it. everyone (like lefty)dismissing the Giants in favor of the Packers! (firecop) The G-Men have virtually no shot... playing home games in Lambau guarantees you NOTHING! (rcade) You just keep telling yourself that... much like watching Joe Buck call a Yankees playoff game. (firecop) ah, whattttt???

I was at Lambeau Field on Saturday, I'll be there next Sunday, too. All you football fans who want the sporting experience of a lifetime, call H.R., take next Monday off, and open up your wallet and plunk down some serious cash and get to Lambeau Field for the NFC Championship game. In a year or two, you won't miss the money, but you'll have a sports memory hard to duplicate or exceed......guaranteed! And since the Pack will be favored (and should win) you will feel energy in a stadium like you've never felt before! From the Frozen Tundra to the Arizona Desert!!!

Hey Nerfballtard, It's tough to spot anyone 14 pts. What a dumb comment! All you Packer "fans" better jump on the wagon, it's getting full and I'm not gonna stop for many more!!

Much respect for Coach Gibbs, but the game has passed him by......Good luck in retirement Coach, you deserve it.

And by the way, I was at the last playoff game when the 'Hawks visited, and I (along with 70,000 other fans) heard our old teammate say verbatim "We want the ball and we're going to score!" Can't blame him for that. Youthful exuberance, just having fun and being "in the moment". I understand a lot of people never actually played sports, especially at a high level. So I hope that comment, while comical, isn't a big issue this week. Matt's a good kid and I wish him luck. He surely didn't mean anything, like over-confidence, by it. Remember when you ended up playing in college against your old high school buds? Or in high school against your old Little League buds? Same thing. Good luck Seahawk fans. You're gonna need it. You are overmatched in this one. But, that's why they play the games.....

At least Kornheiser ain't Bryant Gumbel of the NFL Network...(If I could type out a Krusty the Klown sigh I would!)

I guess the Apocolypse is truly upon us. What a sad commentary on the state of society when someone who cheats garners such an award. Mike McCarthy of the Packers surely deserved the award. Let's see: the youngest team in the NFL, no running game for half the season, a H.O.F. QB who McCarthy was successful in reigning in, and posting a 13-3 record after going 8-8 the previous year to which NObody thought they would even be in the mix. I guess Belicheat even intimidates the writers. What a crock! Spin it any way you want to Pats fans, but the bottom line is he cheated, plain and simple. I guess if he were black (which I'm not) he'd be strung up like Barry Bonds, huh? DISGRACEFUL ! ! !

Here's a wrench.....Not many of these players were EVER busted by a bad test. Let it run it's course.

And another thing: There's one word for anbody, NCAA included, who doesn't think a playoff system is not only warranted, but overdue: SHORTSIGHTED.

Caveman, you're high if you don't think WVU can hang with any of those other frauds!!! (And I'm not even a WVU fan!!!)

If you think THIS is "controversial", wait'll the NFL MVP is awarded. Brady for the stats or Favre for his impact on his team. Can't WAIT for that argument!!

I'd like to preface this by saying I'm a Badger fan. But if I WAS a Michigander, I'd certainly be happy with the change. Sure, he kinda won a national championship, and his winning percentage is merely respectable, but the only things that matter at Michigan are.....you guessed it, his abysmal won-loss record vs. their arch-rival Ohio St. and his pathetic Bowl record. As a Badger fan, I'm bummed he's gone, but for the good of the conference, game, etc. I'm glad he is. Can anyone say Jon Gruden???

Did I read correctly when you said Packer Backers should enjoy the ride because once we get to Dallas, it ends? For shame, better jump on the wagon now......it's anout to get awfully crowded! D-E-F-E-N-S-E ! ! !

All you politically correct wussies either don't have kids, or have been brain-washed by the left-wingers to "avoid conflict". If you touch my kid, you answer to me, plain and simple. Maybe it's about time y'all turn in your man cards.

Although I'm a Big Ten guy, map1876 is spot on with his post.

That's just like trying to compare teams or players from different eras. It's impossible and purely a waste of time, yes?

For all baseball newbies, since I can't physically be there, thecompletepitcher.com will show you all how to grip respective pitches. Of course, you won't be able to throw them, you'll only know how to GRIP the ball.
