Giants end Packers’ season

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on January 15, 2012 – 6:57 pm

The Packers’ season is over.

A season that went more than three months before the Packers lost a game, lasted only one game into the postseason. Again, it was the New York Giants that were the spoilers, just as they were in the 2007 NFC title game. This time, the Giants scored a 37-20 win in a divisional-round playoff game at Lambeau Field.

Turnovers and dropped passes were the culprits for the Packers. The Packers lost four turnovers and it would’ve been one more had Referee Bill Leavy not upheld a no-fumble ruling in a controversial replay review in the first half.

Eli Manning, who quarterbacked the Giants to the NFC title-game win in what was the last time the Packers had hosted a postseason game, threw for 330 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers passed for 264 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks made one of the big plays of the game, bouncing off safety Charlie Peprah and finishing a 66-yard, catch-and-run touchdown in the first quarter that staked the Giants to a 10-3 lead. Nicks then delivered the big blow of the game on the final play of the first half, as he went high into the air to catch a 37-yard, Hail-Mary pass from Manning that sent the Giants to the locker room with a 20-10 lead.

The Packers got to within 20-13 in the third quarter, before the Giants sealed their spot in San Francisco for an NFC title game match with the 49ers, with a flurry of takeaways and big plays in the final quarter.

Packers.com will update this story following postgame interviews. Tune into packers.com for full coverage of Sunday’s game.

    Looking back it seems like AR and some other key players took some sort of sedative 3/4 of the way through the season and never really came out of it. No intensity. AR looks like he’s going to yawn every time he comes up to the LOS.

    Giants win 2012

    Hats off to the Giants and their fans; even with a terrible fumble call that should have been yours, you still prevailed. Had we won, that call would have been a terrible injustice to the Giants and a win I could not have accepted. The Giants imposed their will against the Packers at each position all day long and deserve to move on in the playoffs. Good luck against the 49er’s Giants…congratulations on beating the Packers.

    A totally embarassing performance! What did the Packers do the previous two weeks to prepare? Obviously NOTHING. After no attempt to tackle on the first long pass play I knew the game was over!

I’ve never seen Woodson stand around and watch plays go right by him like I did tonite ! Terrible !! How could you let a Hail Mary go over your head in the end zone at the end of the half … You’re suppose to to be there fighting for the ball SHIELDS and WOODSON !! Finley go some where else if you don’t want to fight for the ball and make catches !! Unbelievable !!

    Here we go again. When Favre struggled, nobody stepped up to make a play and lead. Same thing now. Also, the Pack needs a new D-line, TE’s, and some defensive backs.

  23. By Judy on Jan 15, 2012 | Reply

    We were totally disappointed by the Packers’ performance today. I really think the defense did pretty well given the poor advance billing that they got. How can we expect to win when the receivers were unable to hold on to passes that hit them in the hands and the offense seemed “fumble-prone” What a disappointment since we thought the team was prepared to thrash he loud-mouth, arrogant NYG!! AR seemed to be the only person on the team that was truly trying to win the game. Even then, his passing appeared to be a little “rusty.” Sitting out a game or two did not improve the Packers’ performance.

    Agree with bigbah77. Finley’s performance this year was atrocious. It doesn’t make it OK simply because McCarthy says he’s got good hands. The thing speaks for itself. Major chokes it clutch situations all year. The D-line reminds me of Gilbert Brown after the first quarter in SB 32. Couldn’t even get up. How many times does a player have to get open right down the middle for the Pack’s secondary or Capers to catch on?

    Who’da thought the offense wouldn’t show up. The D did farely well, despite the hail mary lobb to the endzone. It sucks, really, really, really bad. I would have never thought 3 forced fumbles and 8 dropppes would happen to this offense during a playoff game, and in Lambeau of all places. It was a great run, too bad it ended the way it did. This team will be back next year, hungry and ready for another shot. Rodgers is still MVP!! GO PACK GO!! I hope the whiners stop Eli’s head into the ground and wipe that retarded look off his face.

    All of a sudden Dom Capers is the worst D coordinator in the league and Woodson can’t play anymore. The loss stings but we can’t dismiss last years performance by the def. A pass rusher opposite Clay Matthews would change the whole complexion of the def. and the Pack can get back to rolling.

    OK so I swallowed my pride and congratulated the Giants and their fans…a well deserved win at Lambeau. Now for the trolls and idiots that litter our blog with adolescent wit and classless /clueless comments. But first I must address our moderator. I asked very nicely for you to assume the job you were given this past week and moderate the cut/paste senseless posts penetrating your undying attention in vain. We Packer faithful can take ribbing, cajoling, bantering, any and all comers who visit our site spouting off how their team is better than ours and will beat us down. That said why do you still allow this page-after-page cut/paste garbage to pass through your filter? There are many Packer faithful here that enjoy chatting amongst ourselves but deplore having to scroll past the dumb, stupid, and inept…sort of like the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly only without any good.

More than likely not, so shut your mouth & either support your team or just be a follower and cheer for whatever team wins the Superbowl each year.

    This loss is a total team loss! Championships are won with defense. No pass rush, and 32nd ranked defense means all day to throw the ball! Lost the pass rush with Cullen Jenkins (draft a pass rusher even if you have to move up)! Dropped balls all over the field, where is the concentration? 3 fumbles,championship teams do not give it away! The coaching decision to kick an onside kick in the 2nd quarter, who does that? When at home play conservative. To me that sent a message of doubt to the team, like we can not win a shoot out! And the time out before the half that allowed them to get reorganized, looked like a cowboy play (we gave up too many big plays)! And why take Ryan Grant out in the 1st quarter when he was running so well? Stay with the hot players!!! 2 weeks off the team looked it!!!!! On a positive note; THANKS PACKERS FOR A GREAT SEASON!!!

    Well Guys,

    To say I am disappointed is an understatement.I just don’t understand with two weeks of preparation that you guys could have so many dropped balls, miscues, bad tackling, practically no 3rd down conversions, just terrible.

    I love my pack. Will always love you guys, but this loss is an embarrassment to both the fans and the organization in general.

    I hope in the future that this lackluster performance will be reviewed before we enter into another playoff game. (If we enter at all)

    Please in the future don’t assume that you are going to win just because you are playing at home. Donald Driver…thanks man. You were the one guy that really gave it your all. Your the best.

    For a non-packer fan you must have no life to be spending so much time on the Packers website. Must suck to not ever see a Lombardi trophy.
    Its okay. We all agree the packers defense sucked this year. but the real story is the packers offense dropping passes and fumbling the ball. The playoffs are all about the hot team and its obvious the Packers peaked waaay early this year. Last year we peaked at the right time. Hence why we rolled to a championship. So i wish the giants luck. Good luck in San Fran.

    Hope the Packers are happy that they did the stupidist thing ever, sat out the last week…..why?? the Packers are not good enough to sit out, but I’m glad they did, it exposed them for being the posers they are, THE WORST 15 and 1 TEAM IN THE HISTORY OF THE NFL!! gotta love it.

    by watching the game today i was super disapointed on the way both sides were playing. one the offense shouldnt drop that many passes and expect to win games and turn the ball over as well. the defense wow you guys played like a bunch of high school players, we need a pass rush bad!!!! and our secondary needs to play way better next year then they did today dom capers needs to make adjustments on defense and macarthy needs to work on the offense and there lack of catching important passes

    Dropped passes by the Pack receivers? Sure. Bye week rust? Maybe. Emotionally drained after the tragic death of coach Philbin’s son? Perhaps. But bear in mind that GB scored two TDs following absolutely horrendous calls: the fumble that wasn’t, and the phantom blow to the head by Osi. Face it, the team that played better won today. Congrats on a great season, Green Bay fans, now root on Big Blue to another Super Bowl.

    I am a NE Patriots fan and I didn’t even understand first why I came to this site. Now I know. I wanted to convey my thanks to the Packers for a great season and for really raising the standard for all of football this season. I was very sorry to see them lose today. I would have very much liked a Pats-Packs showdown.

    With all the sorrow going on within the team, especially with their OC, it is understandable that routine preparations were disrupted. Anyone can have a bad day, this unfortunately was theirs.

    They are a very classy team and will come back even stronger next year. Any real football fan has to like and respect this team.

    I’m also a fan of the Packers and always will be. Win or Lose. But that doesn’t blind me to the fact that today they played horribly. Our defense is simply undefendable and today our offense didn’t show up to play either. I have to admit in all honesty I didn’t expect to win today the way our defense has been playing. But, with some work in that area we’ll be back stronger next season. See all you nasty commentors then.

    I have to agree that many of the comments from “Packer fans” are a bit surprising and lack any modicum of class (other than being classless). They went 15-1, had a tremendous run but, on this day, had a bad day with drop balls and fumbles. I suppose none of the “fans” who have made disparaging remarks on this blog ever had bad days at work? But, then again, you probably do not work anyway.

    The Pack will be back in 2012-2013. Congratulations on a fine season and thank you for making this one a special one as well.

    Here is a thought. Back in 2008 versus the Giants McCarthy practiced indoors at the Don Hutson center to prep for the game. In that game the Pack did not look comfortable or prepared for that game and we lose. The exact same thing happen this year. McCarthy once again practiced indoors in the Don Hutson center to prep for the game. Bottom line, practice outdoors and get your team ready for the uncertainties of the weather. The real advantage of Lambeau field is the weather and the fans. McCarthy is to blame for this lose, he clearly did not get this team ready. And if Reggie wants Dom Capers for the Raiders head coach job, TAKE HIM! ASAP!

You dont get many chances like this in the NFL. Started in the offseason with some AWFUL choices by management, and ended with out of sync but well rested players(THAT NEVER WORKS!!!!!)and what we all knew would be our eventual downfall. The worst defence i have ever seen take the field in Greenbay. Combine that with an offence with no sense of urgency that has a well rested out of sync QB and tight ends that cant catch a football and you have the most pathetic performance…at home…in a playoff game…in the history of the Greenbay Packers organization!

    The Pack picked the worst possible time to play their worst offensive game of the year. The defense played their usual sh-it game – 400 total yards, 37 points and no pass rush.

    It is long overdue for a needed change in the structure of professional sports. It is time to pay players only when they win. Where is the incentive to win when you’re paycheck is guaranteed throughout the contract?

    The Giants played better than the Packers in clutch situations; our Packers made too many mistakes to overcome them. GB had a great season….but, it’s over. Hopefully, they will improve their team for next season and get to the Super Bowl (in a warm climate).

    Kudos to the fans who took their hats off to the Giants fans and recognized the blown calls. I was wondering if the same guys who paid the refs in the Steelers/Seahawks Superbowl also paid the officiating crew today. The game could have been over sooner had it not been for 2 of the most horrific calls I’d seen in years. That ref looked like he was on his deathbed – or at the very least, severely under the weather. After that hideous non-fumble call, I was sure things would go GB’s way. Guess not!

We thought that we were the best in the world, our heads got big. Then you realize what is happening, your not the best bet we are 1 offseason away from making believers of the Pack and reigning champions once again. GO PACK GO!!!!!!!!!

As for their fans who show their intelligence level with their ridiculous comments, all I can say is your lack of class in victory can only lead me to beleive that if you had anything better to do our National Unemployment Rate would be substatntially better. Congrats to all of you for bringing our nation’s economic recovery to a screeching halt. It is amazing that this level of stupidity resides in people who can access the internet. Your team deserved to win today, you played better on both sides of the ball. Take a note from the small town fans, win with class and dignity. P.S. use spell check before submitting your moronic “WE WON” comments. Hey Giants’ fan, you didn’t suit up and play, the men who wear your colors did, they may not be back next year. I can guarantee the Packers nucleus will be. Enjoy 2012, we will definitely enjoy 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016…….

  191. By OdinsEye on Jan 15, 2012 | Reply

    Not taking anything away from the Giants, the Packers did an excellent job of beating themselves. Seven dropped passes that ended drives that cost this team at least 21 points, three turnovers, one handing the Giants 7 points, and a Hail Mary at the end of the half that took whatever life was left out of the Packers.

    How many balls is Finley going to drop before the coaching staff realizes that maybe, just maybe, Finley is a bit overrated. Defensively, Matthews played well. Burnett played well. Pickett played well and Raji had a decent game. But where was the rest of the defense?

    The other day, it was reported that Oakland was interested in Dom Capers as a head coach. In light of how the defense has played all year and considering that the defense only has had one good season sandwiched by two awful seasons, Capers going to Oakland is not going to hurt the Packers.

    Two things that the Packers need to come to grips with. As good as Aaron Rodgers is, he cannot do it by himself. Second, you need a defense that is effective in keeping the opposition pinned in their own territory, not bending hoping for a turnover. How many times was Manning able to sit in the pocket on third and long situations? And what is with a three man rush early in the game?

    Both the Packers and the Saints, teams with questionable defenses and super offenses, no longer are in contention. And before anyone points out that New England won easily yesterday, take a look at who they played. The Packers, with all their offensive talent, still need a strong defense. The heck with this bend but don’t break scheme.

    I just want to know how much money McCarthy has in his annual budget to pay the refs today…and the Pack still lost. A fumble not called a fumble even when given a few minutes to look at it. A roughing call that wasn’t even close to it. I’ve never seen a reffing crew that wanted one team to win so much as these guys wanted the Pack to win today. They were terrible and one-sided.

    So we lost. It isn’t the first or the last time. It’s frustrating, but as a Packer fan we have laughed at the commercials, been elated with the victories, and been dismayed at the losses. Its a game. teams win and lose and it has been a thrill the last few years. Favre kept us on the edge of our seats year after year. Rodgers has already won a Super Bowl. Driver continues to smile and catch balls. It is an amazing franchise that perpetuates a culture that few other teams or businesses can pull off. Just look at all the “shares of stock” sold. GO GREEN BAY!!!

    I saw this one coming, no kidding!
    The defense was shaky all year. Was it the loss of Jenkins (Cullen) or Collins (36)? I don’t know, but the glue sure came undone. With zero pass rush and poor tacking in the secondary do you expect to compete at this level? Really? TT: hurry up and sign a few free agents for the defense. Look at SF’s defensive line, line backers and DBs. You’ve got work to do!

    By the way, Finley is a distraction and a phony. Let him go to FA and fill his spot with someone who has the character you usually look for in a GB player.

    Coaches who can outline plays on a black board are a dime a dozen. The ones who win get inside their player and motivate.

    I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.

    Show me a good loser, and I’ll show you a loser.

    The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.

    There is no room for second place. There is only one place in my game and that is first place. I have finished second twice in my time at Green Bay and I never want to finish second again.

    Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

    -Vince Lombardi

    I remember those years. These years are not those years……too bad. I’m a Packer fan for 53 years, this is one of the worst performances I’ve seen in such a crucial game. I bleed green and gold. Unfortunately our players and coaches, were not prepared to win. Lack of effort, concentration, preparation and will.

    The results of last year and this year for the Packers tells me that the parity of this league means that the hottest teams will have the best chances in the playoffs. I would have not considered the Packers a “hot” team at the end of the year.

    Also it’s ironic that last year the Packers had all the injuries and had this “us vs. the world” attitude and that carried them to the Super Bowl. That, and a healthy Nick Collins made a big difference. Can’t see how Charlie Peprah can be a starting safety for the Pack next year. Cost the Packers 7, maybe 14 points today with his inability to “make a play”.

    OK….I’m an Eagles fan….I know…8-8. However, we have owned the Giants for the past 5 years. Giants are an easy team to beat IF you can get pressure on Manning. He crumbles under pressure. The Packers, even though they had a great record were giving up way too many points all season. I kept saying if someone could shut Rodgers down for one game the Pack would lose because they give up way too many points. That’s what happened today. The Giants offense is not very good. To give up 37 points to them is just a reflection on how poor a defense the Packers really have. Not sure what happened from last year but something is different. Defense wins in January.
    Don’t be surprised if the Raven are there in the end.

    I would really like to know exactly how the Pack prepared the last two weeks, and how many off days they enjoyed. To go 15-1, and lose at HOME in the playoffs is unacceptable—a few years ago it was unheard of for the Packers to lose at home in the Playoffs—Bart Starr NEVER lost! I heard Jerry Kramer once say “when the games on the line you do your assignment perfectly, you leave no chance for error”…he was talking about his great block in the ice bowl to score Bart. Sadly, our guys didnt do their assignment, and blemished our home record in the playoffs. I hope they are as sick as I feel, and if not, I hope they are on a fast bus outta town.

    We have all been able to watch the Packers play since the Pre-season. It is easy to pinpoint out the faults of the team and individual players, and trust me, I did while I watched the game, after I switched jersey’s 3 times, hoping that one would be better luck than the other, I realized my efforts had no impact to what the Giant’s were delivering.

    This lose is bittersweet, but only gives the team motivation for the future. Some players will stay, some will be traded, and some will not make the team again next year, I enjoyed watching this years 2011-2012 team and cannot wait until August!

    Frank- I looked but I didn’t see Rodgers on defense like you said. You said he outplayed Rodgers but I didn’t see him take the field once all game on defense. He did however outplay the Packers defense. Rodgers had a lot of things go wrong today (6+) dropped passes that killed 3 deep drives for one. Yeah, I think he’s an elite quarterback. One game doesn’t ruin a players body of work. And doesn’t have an inferiority complex to have to proclaim himself one at the beginning of a season.

    Did we play our best today…not even close. Were their distractions like Philbin’s son dying and coaches being interviewed for jobs with other teams? Hell yes. Should we have risen above like a championship team is expected and still win…probably?

    Still at 15-1 we had a great season, hats off to the players and staff for that accomplishment. That said I have to side somewhat with Jimmy Taylor Redux when he asks why they call it the Lombardi…cause no one since him has done it as well. If you want a dynasty, something that lasts beyond the paycheck from year to year, then you must prepare and sacrifice the dollars for the legacy. With the coaches entertaining offers elsewhere before the seasons even over…how can one expect excellence or consistency?

    I have been a Packer fan for 49 years, through good times and bad. One thing I do know is that the Packers aren’t going to win every game, which some of you so called fans seem to expect. They have a great season at 15-1 and have an off day at the wrong time and many of you want coaches fired and players let go. I read many of the posted comments and wonder what kind of fans some of you really are. I guess if some of you got your way and the coaches and players named in some of these comments were let go we could at least look forward to the number one draft choice next season. As a true Packer fan I am deeply embarrassed by some of the comments by “supposed” Packer fans.

    Hats off to the Giants for a well deserved win. Great season Packers … Looking forward to next season.

    I, like all Green Bay fans, am truly dissapointed by this loss.

    It was a total team loss. I hope this gets their sense of urgency back, and that the players finally see how important fundamentals are, which is what McCarthy said was the biggest problem all season.

    I think the two things that I hate the most about this are, that now I have to wait until next season to watch the pack play, and that my total jerk of a supervisor is a giants fan, and he’s probably going to be pretty smug about this tomorrow.

    We seriously need Collins back. Peprah and Burnett are just not cutting it, Collins was way faster and stronger than either.
    Get Shields and Williams as Corners, they are fast and jump really tall and make Woodson be a Safety with Collins and leave Peprah and Burnett as reserves, Woodsons ability to strip the ball is that of a Safety.

    GET FINLEY OUT, or at least bench him until he can catch the ball, all the drops hes made, unbelievable. And get both a new DL guy and someone to rush the passer like Mathews, he got 3-teamed today many times and no one used the opportunity to get to Manning.

    Seriously, today the flaws were exposed, now please fix them in the offseason. Grant and Starks were good when they needed to though. Starks ran well once they gave him the ball.

    On any given Sunday, anything can happen. Its a game and stuff happens. Sometimes it can turn to a rout in only a few plays. Play again tommorow and your team wins. Keep your heads up and think about the great season (and times) the Pack gave you, not to metion the SB the year before. That’s a lot more than most any other team in the NFL. And by the way, I’m a Bear fan and know about suffering.

    Charlie Peprah killed the team in the first half.
    Crabtree, Finley, Kuhn, Starks, Grant, Jennings, and Rodgers killed the team in the whole game with bad hands, bad reads, bad throws, bad catches…. it was sickening.

    Every team won at home in the first 7 playoff games this season.

    But this team is not built for ice cold climate.
    Put a retractable dome on that dang field for January football and warm/fast it up there, or play only road playoff games or move them to Miami for the playoffs.

    I see a lot of GB fans chastising our players and coaches. Yes, we played poorly. No, coaches and players should not be fired for today’s game. This team and its fans are a family. The loss of the OC’s son was a big hit on this team, and it showed today. You could tell it weighed heavily on their minds. Is that an excuse, no. McCarthy said it himself, that you need to keep work and personal life separate… But sometimes, especially with the loss of, for all intents and purposes a ‘family’ member, easier said than done. That loss hit this team, all of them, hard. It showed in their game play. All this trash talk is ridiculous. Win or lose, go Pack, go. There is always next year. McCarthy and the coaching staff know what to fix, what they are doing. Have some faith. See you next year for another great season.

    First off, I want to thank the entire Green Bay organization for another great year. Whether we are 0-16 or 15-1, I look forward to cheering on this team every season. That being said, this loss is going to hurt for a while seeing that the packers had homefield throughout the playoffs and that they made so many mental mistakes throughout the game against the giants. I still feel if this game is played 10 times, the pack win 8-9 of them. Sometimes, you just have games where you do not do the fundamentals very well (tackling, ball handling, catching, etc) and cannot execute on offense. Congrats to the G-men on a great win and good luck against the niners. I look forward to cheering on the pack in 2012!

Your team had a +201 point differential in the regular season, second only to the Saints’ +208. Of course, you both met similar fates this weekend, proving, once again, that in football as in all sports, defense (pitching in baseball) usually wins out in the postseason.

    As a Giants fan I would like to say that it was a great game tonight with the Packers. No one really gave the Giants a chance to come into your house and win after your great 15-1 season. I think most pundits forgot that having a 15-1 season does nothing in the playoffs. Is a new season and every team is @ 0. Vegas lost a lot of money betting on your team to destroy the Giants. I think Vegas forgot about how our defense was starting to gel together the last 3 games. Today Eli has showed that he is up there with the Elite QB’s in this league and I bet the pundits still won’t give him his due props even taking out the best QB in the NFL this season with a 15-1 record. See you guys next year.

    How does a team that is the defending superbowl champs and a 15 and 1 season end up with that kind of game. It seemed the defence played good enough to win until they were force to try and strip the ball away at the end. The Packers were in the game till the end of the game until someone thought it was good idea to go for 4th and 5 yards to go. Who was calling this game for the Pack was it Alvin And The Chipmunks? I mean really it seem like the pack was in panic mode from quarter 1. Who calls a on side kick in the first half unless they are desperate or trying to throw the game. Sometime I question the reality of sports and think its only what others want us to see at the time.

    Well, one thing is for sure: The Packers had a great season but at the same time need to renovate their defensive line. Their organization will need restructuring. BUT, they play with heart and committment everytime. That is all that I ask as the Packers look to the off season to prepare for 2012-2013. Disappointing as it is to see a loss like this at a crucial time, I think that Vince Lombardi would want us not only playing on the field like winners, but being mentally tough, spiritually tough. I agree with that philosophy and am so proud of this organization!

    NY, you played outstanding, and congratulations. Good luck in the playoffs! A great performance like yours in perseverence needs no introduction or conclusion! Play hard and you will succeed both on and off the field! Also, win graciously and if you lose, do so with dignity, knowing you gave it your best all out effort!

    GB management, you have your work cut out for you; I have great respect for what you are done and have great regards for the effort. However, defese is the biggest priority and needs immediate attention.

    GB coaches: Thanks for sticking with your players rain or shine. Don’t let this one get to your heads; everyone has off days. This season, defense was the weak link in the chain. So don’t beat yourselves up, but concentrate on the positive things that can be done to make your offense and DEFENSE even better next year and THINK POSITIVE – THE GLASS IS HALF FULL!

    Thanks to everyone for a great season and look forward to 2012-2013!

    Just before the holidays I posted a concern about the Packer defense and some one posted back that Dom Capers was a defensive genous and that he will have the defense ready when the playoffs come up. I am not a family member of the Packer community,I am a fan since 1967 and I dont mind saying that despite their 15-1 season what I saw last night was the most pathetic playoff game since the cowbows leveled a then Lynn Dickey team in 1981. Games like this change a team for years so any one expecting the Pack to come back next year think again,it will take years for this team to be a contender,in fact im so sure of this that in the next two years if they even make the plyoffs I will come to Green Bay and by some of you a steak. They played like a pop warner team and no one can put their finger on the reason. I believe they had become so arrogant because of the way the press built them up that they thouhgt that they would win no matter how bad they played.and they played bad,and were coached horribly. To most of you on this post keep the faith because you are great fans of a legendary franchise. but be realistic.Big changes have to be made especially to the defense and the coaches need to have faith in the running game because it is a good one.Mcarthey may have ruined Rodgers arm by relying on him to many times and you have a back up that could be a great QB. In my oppinoin trade Rodgers and finley and Hawk and get the draft picks you need and some free agents and rebuild that defense and fire Capers and get Spagnolia before some one else does.

    I want to also thank the Pack for a GREAT season, but many Packers fans need a “reality check.” Some of the comments about Aaron Rodgers going back to commercials are ridiculous. You are spoiled and expect the Packers to win every game every year. THAT IS NOT REALITY!!! Sure, I wasn’t happy with a Packer loss either, but the Giants played MUCH BETTER than we did. Infact, there was no comparison!!! I ask you, would you rather have Brett Favre back with a MVP quarterback like Aaron Rodgers.
