Mike McCarthy gave the kind of answer that could turn up in a beer commercial. "Milestone?" he said, wincing in confusion, with the kind of voice inflection usually associated with other one-word questions such as "Practice?" or "Playoffs?" "We don't think about it that way," the Green Bay Packers coach added after gathering his composure following ...

Where are all the Queenie fans that told us Pack fans that we couldn't talk on here until Rodgers won a playoff game? Well, we're here where are the Queenie fans?

Don't forget the reason the Packers are even in the playoffs. It was a game in Green Bay that a horrible ref crew gave the game to the Packers.. remember. Even the league apologized for it. Without that gift.. no playoffs.

Philly, 5 dropped passes, bad penalties, 2 missed field goals. Now lets reverse the game these things and the outcome. The packer fans would be screaming they didnt win we gave them the game. We would have won if we make the field goals. Even with missing the longer one with the short one made all we would have needed was the field goal at the end. we were close ehough to kick it if we didnt need a TD.This game was a gimme.

Oh I thought the Packer fans were always being criticized for living in the past. All year we hear about how A-Rod can't win a playoff game or a close game for that matter, he wins a playoff game on the road and then you blame Philly for making mistakes and a game in October that the "refs gave them"(not the two horrible BF INTS). There's no winning with the Queens fans and they can't give a guy his due. Even most Packer fans would admit that BF was unbelievable for you guys last year. What a bunch of sore loser, bandwagon fans that can't accept the fact that your franchise is entering rebuilding mode without a bona fide starting QB or a place to play after next year. You guys better start drowing yourselves in one of your 10,000 lakes. GO PACK GO!!!!!

What we are stating now are the things packer fans use for excuses and say all the time when they lose.And the RB is the reason they won not A-THE-GAY-ROD and his little skips and hops and his fake belt.

Wow. Think that one up all by yourself? I'll give the Vikings credit for helping the Packers into the playoffs by losing to the Pack twice. As far as the refs(since you're still hung up on blaming them), it all evens out during the year. Every team gets good and bad calls throughout the season that may affect an outcome of particular game game. Do you really believe all 18 penalties the Pack was called for against the Bears were legitimate? Some of those were bad calls or could've been called either way. Get over the loss at Lambeau you Queenies got their azzes kicked at the Dumpty Dome, even with Rice back from injury. The Pack deserved to be in the playoffs and they proved it yesterday.

Pardon me?

There were a few key misses for GB too. Or did you miss the Jones drop which would have put him near or in the end zone? With that catch, GB still wins. And let's not forget the fact PH had to attempts are the 2pt conversion... but still came up short. How many TDs did PH have? How many for GB? PH played in safe for 3 quarters... IN A PLAY-OFF GAME. They went full-on out of desperation at the end. GB didn't play it safe and came out of it with the W. End of.

This game was a toss up between two of the weaker teams in the playoffs, slight edge to Philly - Slackers won on luck more than talent, especially towards the last play of the game. I doubt many Slacker fans have sobered up enough or bailed themselves out of DUI jail in time to be a tad more realistic and objectionable about the game yesterday and the playoffs altogether but..........nothing else to cheer for over there as we all know.

Pittsburgh's gonna just spank 'em.

Ginger ain't no Favre, though he pretends to be. Yaaaaaeeee...you won a playoff game. Now lets see how many INT's the Slackers rack up since they dont have a running game.

1 and done GB! We'll keep the sidlines warm for ya!!!

And are you trying to tell us that this incoherent, mindless drivel is from a SOBER person?
"This game was a toss up between two of the weaker teams in the playoffs, slight edge to Philly"

Even worse than a 7-9 team that lost each of their 9 games by at least 10 points? Plus the fact the Pack won in Philly TWICE this season.

"Pittsburgh's gonna just spank 'em."

So which is it? One and done or in the Super Bowl getting spanked from Pittsburgh? Do you not understand how there are two seperate football conferences in the NFL with the winners of the respective conferences playing in the Super Bowl? Pittsburgh is part of the AFC while the Packers are in the NFC for future reference.

"Ginger ain't no Favre"

I'll agree with that since Rodgers didn't throw any interceptions yesterday and he actually WON a road playoff game in the 2000's.

"Slackers rack up since they dont have a running game."

Did you miss Starks setting a playoff rookie rushing record?

In closing this person put us "Slacker" fans and Cheesehead nation in our place. This was a terrific analysis from a great football mind that paid great attention to each detail of the Packer game yesterday. Howie Long and Jimmy Johnson better watch out for this Spector guy he'll be taking their jobs in no time. GO PACK GO!!!!!!

Three reasons to believe you aren't paying attention...

1) Two of the weaker teams? Check the Ravens, Bears and Packers against the field. All three teams are 3-3, Philly is/was 2-2. So, how Philly had the advantage (in your world) is anyone's guess. GB got lucky? How? By intercepting that Vick pass to the endzone?

2) Realistically, GB came away with the win. Period. With a second chance at a failed 2-pt conversion and two failed (safely called) FG attempts, Philly DID NOT deserve the W. I'd state the same had GB lost after a few key misses... including the Jones drop. And I believe you meant "objectively", not "objectionable". You oughta check your alcohol-to-blood level.

3) We're at Atlanta Saturday night.

Pittsburgh? gonna spank who? The Packers? When? The Super Bowl? wtf?

Are stupid or something? Ha ha All that anger a sh** talk and then you think the Pack play Pittsburgh??? It isn't even the same conference knucklehead!!! 1 and done? They already won the first game!! So "one and done" does not apply. WAKE UP! Seriously though get back on the short bus window licker!!
