Rodgers-to-Cobb wins Never Say Never Moment of Year

Posted by Mike Spofford on February 1, 2014 – 6:33 pm

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers’ 48-yard TD pass to WR Randall Cobb on fourth-and-8 in the final minute of the Week 17 showdown at Soldier Field won the online voting for the NFL’s Never Say Never Moment of the Year.

The award was announced on Saturday night at the third annual “NFL Honors” show in New York City.

The touchdown, with 38 seconds left in the game, gave the Packers a 33-28 victory over the Bears for their third straight NFC North title. The division crown and an NFC playoff spot were on the line in the game.

The Packers trailed, 28-27, when they took possession on their own 13-yard line with 6:24 left. Converting a pair of fourth downs on a short run by FB John Kuhn and a pass to WR Jordy Nelson, the Packers faced another fourth down at the Chicago 48-yard line.

Rodgers, playing in his first game back from a broken collarbone that sidelined him for seven contests, and Cobb, also in his first game back from a leg injury that cost him 10 games, hooked up for the game-winner.

The Bears brought a blitz, Kuhn threw a key block on Chicago DE Julius Peppers that allowed Rodgers to get out of the pocket, and Cobb was running free down the field waving his hand. Rodgers’ pass settled into his arms at the 10-yard line and he dove over the goal line, setting off a wild celebration on the field and on the Packers sideline.

    One of the best things about that radio call is hearing the Bear fan in the background yelling, “oh God, oh MY GOD!!!”

    Man, was it ever great to watch that video again!

    And putting the radio audio track over it was genius.

    Thank you!

    It just doesn’t get any better then that. It felt like a second Christmas the end of that week! First A Rod coming back on Thurs. then hearing that Cobb would play late Sat. evening, the “star’s” were lining up for the best end of season play I’ve seen!!! I still get goosebumps watching/listening to it. And let’s not forget that it would not have been possible if it hadn’t been for John Kuhn, what an outstanding block & heads up play. Hope TT does AR right by signing him for another 3 yrs!!! Thx for the 2013 memories!!! I think 2014 is looking bright!! Congrats Lacy!! OROTY

    I was traveling and managed to catch the game on an airport monitor. Luckily, I set my DVR to record the game…I never get tired of rewinding and watching this play over and over.

    This was EASIEST award to give, knowing what was at stake in the game, the recent and past history of the teams, -ridiculous anyone else was even considered.

    The Seahawks are a hundred times better than the Packers. I just knew they would be.

    It was a great play. I still think a “Never Say Die Award” should only go to a team that didn’t give up and die though.

  18. By SonOfDebbieDowner on Feb 3, 2014 | Reply

    What a win it was over the Bears in week 17. Then they lost to the 49ers a week later, I just knew that would happen.

    This award should have went to Kuhn! His block is what made that play!

    I have watched that video over and over again. It never gets old. Love the look on Cutler’s face.

    Congrats to Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb!

    Its time to pry Brett out of retirement. He’d gladly backup Rodgers, or vise- versa.

    Hate to say it,but all season long I said ‘Offenses win games, Defenses win championships’. And with brainless M.M. keeping Capers, its going to be another short season!!!

    M.M. and T.T. could not make water-boy for Pete Carroll…..Green Bay better get some real talent to match Pete and his system or it will be a few short year’s……..

    George, maybe you should find hobbies that make you happy. Football seems to be bringing you down.

    John Kuhn should have been mentioned

    Sometimes you eat the Bear and sometimes the Bear eats you. Chicago Bear taste pretty good.

    The Lions folded like a cheap circus tent and saved Rodgers’ job. I just knew they would.

    This was a true Never Say never moment. Both back from injury and it was on the most dramatic win of all the other nominees. That was for a playoff berth and a division crown on the road division rival on 4th & 8 with under a minute to go. Great great moment on a season that was robbed from the packers due to injuries. Finley will be missed he was finally playing at that peak level it seemed he was stronger faster and bigger than he had ever been.

    One of the best plays all year and so glad to see both players back from injury. Looking forward to a great year next season, with the Offensive Rookie of the Year Eddie Lacy and hopefully a healthy team all season. Need to sign John Kuhn who is a free agent now, would hate to see him in another uniform.

    GO Pack GO
