    Lions' late win over Buccaneers paved way to Packers Super Bowl - Peter King - SI.com

    I'm well aware of the HUGE difference it made when the Lions beat the Bucs & the eagles beat the Giants...I'm sure many of you guys are aware of that too, but Peter King needs to make sure EVERYONE can see have a reason to believe the Packers didn't belong...kinda negative, guess what Peter King REDSOX SUCK!

    Well, Peter King/Bill Keenist, you're into Ifs... If your aunt had balls, she'd be your uncle.

    And if Green Bay had won one or two of the six close games they lost..?

    If, if, if.

    Somebody sounds mad that the Packers won another Championship. Geez, get him an account at OBF.

    Peter (which is the french verb for "To Fart") King is one reason why I hope there is a Packers/Patriots Super Bowl next year - no matter who won, his head would explode. And then the world would be a better place :happy0005:

    So good to hear that the entire Packers season came down to two games, neither of which they were involved in. I'm pretty sure this is the first time in the history of the NFL that a team has benefited from other teams losing. Think it will ever happen again? Gosh, I hope not, I'm having enough trouble wrapping my head around this one.

    How about this, if the Packers hadn't won on the road against the Eagles, Falcons and Bears, then traveled to Dallas and beaten the Steelers there, they would not have been hoisting the trophy

    In the end it all doesn't matter how the Packers got there.
    The only thing that matters is that they did get there.
    And the major way they got there was through great efforts by winning those last 5 games, which really all were playoff games.

    the guys is basically bringing down the packers glory a couple notches by writing about something like this, they just beat the #3, the #2, the #1 NFC seeds and when on to beat the #2 afc seed to become THE CHAMPS...how about you write about that PETER KING, all the adversity the team went through, losing players in almost every position

    IF Peter King was a better columnist, I'd read his stuff more.

    Maybe they should give them all rings too after A-Rod takes them all out to dinner.
    (He really is super cheap if he doesn't do that.)

    Oh good, we're still whining about the media.

    Good Lord. Here's the dirty little secret: He's right. We don't make the Playoffs without the Eagles pulling off that miracle and the Lions beating Tampa. That Sunday, despite our loss at New England, was one of if not the most important regular season Sundays of our season.

    Again, I have no problems with this, and again I'm amazed at this whole "the media hates us" attitude of some of you.

    Hey, Peter King. Here's an "If" for you.

    If the Packers took 26 points off the 45-7 blowout of the Dallas Cowboys and distributed them equally to all of the total scores of the losses they faced this year, they would be undefeated.

    what's to be amazed about, the guy is obviously not in the Packers corner and I'm pointing it out by posting it here

    Peter Kind is a small portion of the Media and he decided to write about something negative about the Packers Success...why wouldn't that bother any packers fan?

    Because it's not negative! It's not a smear job! It's the facts. If that weekend doesn't happen, our Super Bowl run doesn't happen. It's a big part of the story of the 2010-11 Packers.

    And of course he's not "in the Packers corner". He's a national journalist. They have classes on being unbiased.

    he's still bringing down the successful season the Packers have had, I don't agree w/ that choice of topics to write about...write about the injuries...write about the emergence of backups playing like starters...write about the leaders of the team going down w/ injury in the superbowl...write about the consistency of aaron rodgers the last 6 games...write about how dominating we would be if we didn't lose grant or finley...nah, let's write about how they are lucky to be there

    Hell, I can do Peter King's job:

    "The performance of Aaron Rodgers against the Steelers' defense was almost as good as the triple mocha frappuchino I had last week at that little out of the way place down in Soho where all us awesome cool beautiful people go. Now, here's a picture of some random cheerleader because there were none at this year's Super Bowl..."

    It's "funny" how some of us (Myself included) takes some things against the Packers so personal.

    Nothing at all wrong about having the passion one has for the Packers but we should all learn to pick our battles.
    (And again, I'm including myself in that equation.)

    I'm agreeing with Jess.
    I don't see the big deal about this one.
    Let the media say what they want.
    Bottom line is the Lombardi is home and nothing they can write about will take it away or take away our pride.
    We all should learn to let go on certain things.

    He's not bringing anything down.

    We were lucky to be in the Playoffs.

    We needed Philly to come back from 21 down with 8 minutes left against NYG.

    We needed Detroit to break a 27 game road losing streak against a very good Tampa team.

    On the same weekend.

    Both happened.

    You don't think that's luck?

    It doesn't diminish what we've done, it doesn't cheapen it, it's just a very interesting part of the story of this team. Hell, Rodgers even points to that weekend when asked where it all turned around this year.

    do I think that's it's luck that Mike Vick came back from a crazy deficit in an away game against the GIANTS...the eagles are a lucky team? they aren't "good"? I think the Giants got comfortable and played stupid and it just so happened to benefit us

    the lions can play ball, beating the bucs was huge, do i think that was luck, don't know didn't watch the game

    I really don't think you can consider any one team beating another team "lucky"

    now desean running it back was lucky, but the game was already tied

    the titans beating the bills in the Championship game, I think that could be considered lucky b/c the refs had no perspective of the ball being thrown forward

    and just as lucky to have 16 players go on IR to be in that position
