    Not ashamed to admit I felt the Pack could/would go 19-0 until the Chiefs game. I felt like that game took some of the air out of the balloon. The fear factor so to speak.

    I felt the Packers could have repeated this year but the Giants were also IMO the toughest game they could have played in the NFC.

    I never was scared of the Saints but they were always hyped to be the best. I always stuck up for the Niners.

    I really did want to see SF at GB.


    I think the Giants take it in SF but it won't be easy. SF will be jacked up for it. Giants D is a heck of a lot better up front then the Saints though so Alex Smith better be ready. And Eli better be ready for more pressure too and not so many easy third down conversions.


    Don't even want to talk AFC at times. First seed opens with Tebow. The second seed opens with Yates. Shoot me now.

    What a game. Man, the Packers are tough. Until that Jacobs TD I was not convinced it was over.

    If any team can sympathize with a defending champ losing the next year in the divisional round, at home, off a bye, it's the Giants.

    I was surprised to hear the Giants fans at the game. You could definitely hear "Cruuuuuuuz" after every catch. Did not expect that.

    Congratulation Giants fans! Your defense and special teams efforts did everything to thwart the Packers and your offense cleaned up on those turnovers. I could easily see it was our inability to fundamentally handle the football that helped carry the day for you guys. Great job! As for the Championship game, I like the 49ers. What can I say for their exciting win on Saturday and the storyline of Harbaugh's influence and Alex Smith and company's trials and tribulations through the years. That's one team that needs a "feel good" Super Bowl win.

    As for us Packers fans, I reckon most of us will be off from work on Martin Luther King Jr.'s Birthday. That's good because it'll kinda create a time buffer as far as getting an ear load from our fellow co-workers. Ha ha. It's been a fun ride this year and our stock is soaring! Enjoyed chatting with you all and look forward to next season. 3-18, 3-18, hut hut.:)

    Thanks for the hospitality on these boards....great fans, great ppl

    This was a hell of a game, I know its a tough pill for you guys to swallow...

    In all honestly we know what that feeling feels like, we were in a similar predicament the year after our 07 SB win.

    Good luck to GB in the future, Rodgers & Co are a very tough out. I'm sure we'll meet again soon enough...you guys def ain't going nowhere

    Hopefully you guys snatch up a stud in the upcoming draft

    Anyways, I'm outta here for the most part, (maybe I'll post here once in a while, I do like your forum...lol) so once again, thanks for the hospitality...

    Later fellas! (And gals!)

    Hey all just want to chime in and say thanks for all the positive comments in regards to the game. Most of you guys are true football fans and class acts. I do wish the game had been closer - it was clear the Pack rhythm was off for whatever reason. Clearly, Rodgers had pressure and that made some impact on his throws but there were too many dropped balls to open receivers that are just unacceptable. Consequently the officiating was terrible once again this match up. I was happy to get a win - but I do wish the win came against your team at its strongest - today was not their best. Haters are going to hate on the Giants. However there isnt a team left that we cant beat. We bELIeved the same to be true last week. Congrats to a good season though and we'll see the Pack again next season.

    I feel less confident about the 49'ers than I did the Pack to tell you the truth... We almost beat u guys 1/2 way through the season but got better while you went backwards imo. The 49'ers have only improved since the last time we played them and I think Alex Smith is a lot better than people are giving him credit for. Should be a TOUGH game and the 49'ers proved this weekend they can keep up score with the best of em so don't think outscoring is the best solution either especially with their incredible defense

    Defensive battle. Might come down to which QB can pull it out of his rear. Eli has done it more and has more experience but it's tough.

    Giants 20 Niners 17. Something like that would not shock me.

    I might favor the Niners more if the Ravens manage to win the early game. Then I will think HARBAUGH BOWL.

    I know this is late but I just wanted to thank you all for your hospitality the past week...you guys are by far some of the classiest and most knowledgable fans I've met in a my short, 17 years of existence. It's all been said, but I think we can all agree the refs missed some calls, made some debatable calls, and despite the Packers seeming to be a bit "off," the Giants played a good game.

    As tough as this game must be for you guys to accept you have a hell of a lot to be proud of not to mention to look forward to...15-1 and a probably league MVP QB...the team is young and I'm sure you guys will be contenders for years to come.

    Let's go Giants!!

    Which scum sucking Giant :poop: is that mocking Aaron and putting on the belt?
    He doesn't deserve it. He is an uncreative hack for being unoriginal.
    I hope every team beats the Giants from now on.
    I used to like them but that just pushes my buttons when someone makes fun and mocks someone else. Low class.
    Screw the Giants. May they lose every game from now on.

    Congratulations to the Giants. Giants came to play and the Packers didn't. It's that simple.

    I was shocked at the way this game went, not that the Giants won but that Green Bay played so poorly....on offense. The Packers handled the Giant pass rush fairly well, but good god, the drops and the fumbles were the story of the game for the Packers. That and giving up a hail mary to Nicks after Bradshaw rips off a 25 yard run after MM called the stupidest time out of the whole season.

    The number of mental mistakes and timing mistakes by the Packers was just unbelievable.

    The Giants did what they had to do and they did it more than well enough. Packers never gave themselves a chance to actually do something in this game. Giants executed. We didn't.

    Once again, congrats Giants.

    GG G Men. Im rooting for you through the rest of the stretch. Even though Harbaugh was a great Michigan Wolverine QB, and is a native to the Detroit area....I cant stand the prick. Whoop the 49ers.

    Congrats to the G-man and their fans. Your team played well and deserved the win. Even with several, imo, bad ref calls going against your team, they still notched the W. Good luck the rest of the way.

    On the Packer side, am very disappointed. I never get down when the team plays well and is defeated. But... 8 drops and three (really, four) fumbles? Most of those drops had little to do with the defenders-- rather, just a loss of concentration on the Packer part. And all of the fumbles, except for Rodgers perhaps, were not due to a bone-crushing blows. It just just running into a routine/solid tackler and not protecting the ball. In both (non-Rodgers) cases, Grant and Kuhn only had one hand on the ball, despite seeing the tackler coming and knowing a hit is about to occur. Inexcusable.

    In summary, the defense played it's usual horrible level. No surprises here. They suck. Only player that showed up, as usual was Matthews. A few spotty good efforts by a few others, but otherwise unremarkable. A key moment for me was watching Hawk, our MILB, get knocked over by a Giant wide receiver who merely stuck his arm out. The Giant (Manningham?) was already blocking another Packer and saw Hawk run around towards the ball carrier. He stuck out his arm and knocked Hawk completely off his feet. Wow. Packers defenders had a cinderella season in 2010-- that is becoming clear. 2009 and 2011 are probably actually reflective of their skill level. (and maybe of our defense coaching staff?)

    But, the offense really played uncharacteristically sloppy. This is not meant to slight the Giants-- they played well and did what they had to to disrupt the Packers game and earn the win. But, in my opinion, the Giant D-line was not the key factor on doing this- as many thought would occur. The defensive backs surprisingly played very well (Aaron had plenty of time all game long-- but simply did not have open targets) and our receivers played like crap when they did get open. Too bad for GB. I really thought this was going to be an even battle to the end (most of us did). Never expected our "playmakers" (except Rodgers, who played well) to simply not show up.

    Oh, well. Into a long off season. Dang. I hate the off season.

    No divided loyalties now. It's all NINERS all the way to the SUPERBOWL!

    We'll avenge the Pack's loss with a stomping of NY at the 'Stick.

    I'll add my congrats to the G Men and their fans. I am confident that the Packer's D line and secondary will tighten up over the offseason, as bloody long a time as that's going to seem to me. Since I am ever loyal to the NFC, I will just say that whomever wins the Giants-49ers game had better whomp on Brady and his crew (or, possibly, Flacco and crew - but that does not have the same ring to it)!!
