Its not like the Pack has been dominating on their home field in the playoffs. The road might be better for them

I also hope it doesn't cost a playoff spot, but the Seahawk/Packer game is history. Thankfully, all of the scab games are history. The Packers still have control of their own fate. The difference now is that the scabs won't be screwing it up anymore.
I'm thinking this season will be viewed like the 1987 season, in retrospect. Remember that strike year by the players? There were three games played by replacement players, and at the end of the season they counted in the standings, but nobody took them seriously. I suspect this season will go down in history with a similar "asterisk" in people's minds... that the first three games didn't really count.

Anyone remember the Packers having one of the top teams in the league for the three "replacement" games in 1987? Alan Risher at QB?

I remember that year. It sucked. I think that affected the season more than this will. The year of the replacements does carry a stigma but I don't think the ultimate NFL Champion (Washington Redskins) were undeserving. It did cost the Giants a chance to repeat though because they went 0-3 during the replacement games.

Monday night's game made me sick! Packers are talking about taking a knee on every play in protest of officiating (or the lack thereof)! Wouldn't that piss some people off?
It's because AR is afraid he is going to get sacked again.
