    I keep hearing how big of an upset this game was. With the amount of injuries to our team, how was this really an upset? Seriously, no Harris, Bigby, Barnett, Burnett, Shields, Chillar, Pickett, and Matthews (2nd half) on D and then no Grant, Tausher, Finley, and Lee on offense. How exactly should the Packers have been considered favorites on the road to a .500 team?

    Because even with all of those injuries, we were still the better team. I wouldn't call it an upset, but the Packers had every chance in the world to put the game away.

    So youre saying Poppinga, Peprah, Bishop are better than Matthews, Bigby/burnett, Barnett? Please.

    And for the record... :viksux::chisux::detsux:

    Because we posted over 450 yards this game and put up THIRTEEN points! I don't care who was in the game.... you post that many yards and score a piddley 13 points and you deserve to lose.

    I agree that we could have won that game. I just don't see it as a huge upset. I see it as a 2nd string defense going out and playing against one of the better QB's in the league. But basically just that a 2nd string defense.

    What? I don't see anything in my short post that would've given you that idea. Our starters are CLEARLY better, and if we had a healthy team, I think we would've dominated. What I'm say is, even with all those benchwarmers in, we could've easily won.

    Or rather, we SHOULD HAVE won.

    I agree we should have won. our defense, second string or not, let up 13 points. VERY good performance there. But, our "one of the most prolific offenses in the nfl" scored 13.... 13!!!!!!

    Even with the injuries, that's a game we should have won. It's an upset in my book.

    I agree, I follow both teams and the packers the way they started, even with injuries, should have closed them out. But this is the reality of the NFL, if you leave teams around late into the 2nd half... your bound to see things like this. The game is practically designed for close finishes. Let's just learn from this and go forward, win the division, and then go from there.

    It's not a game we "shouldve" won.

    We're overrating our own team and saying we shouldve won games that are really either/or.
