    I'm surprised that Mason made that.

    Wow. I just came online to realize we won. Last time I checked we were behind 21-13. Go Pack.

    Made it?

    It was PERFECT!

    And I think the Colts never even considered the possibility of the Packers doing it.

    I had to babysit a two year old last night so I didn't get to watch till this morning. An onside kick? Awsome. I think mike was sending a statement to everyone and the team. I liked Aroge's comments about becoming hunters again.

    I believe we saw why they decided to hang on to Crosby. That big leg of his. 50+ yards right down the middle. that kick had enough on it to make it from 60+ yards. If he can ever get consistent he is going to be a killer.

    I don't necessarily think MM was trying to send a message, the opportunity just presented itself to try an onside kick in game conditions and he took it.

    Let's not forget this was still a pre-season game.

    I'll be a believer in Mason when he does it in a reg. season game saving the game for the Pack.
    But I hope, really, really hope it doesn't get to that point.
    I still have not forgotten those close games he blew in 09.

    I turned the game off right before the TD scoring drive. :(

    I hope Crosby can make field goals like that in the regular season. You know, the OT loses from last year still linger on from missed Field goals.

    It made too sense not to.

    Going for it was good for the backups' confidence, as well as the whole team, that when we really want to win, we will win.

    And if we missed the 2 point conversion, it was like Aaron Rodgers said. Nobody was going to be sad that a preseason game ended.

    All in all, in hindsight, it was an obvious decision.

    Do we have to repeat another 50 lashes with a piece of string cheese again?

    Was anyone else hoping/wishing it would have been a reg. season game?

    Yet another phase of the game MM got to take a look at in preseason.

    Heck, the commentators sounded surprised that MM went for 2. The onside really caught them going "HUH?".

    That's what I thought too. I don't know what kind of "message" you can send with an onside kick in the preseason.

    Lol not really... I think if we ever had to do a 4th and 10 on the 11 yard line with 30 seconds left, get a 2 point conversion, a onside kick, and a game winning field goal over 50 yards, I would have a heart attack. Plain and simple.

    I wonder if it's a "statement" at all. Nobody goes out onto the football field looking to loose. Every member of the Colts organisation and the announcers were surprised. Packer fans weren't.

    I think MM picks the right moments for onside kicks, versus Arizona two years ago, versus the Patriots and then versus the Colts. All bold moves that the Packers won and made a statement afterwards. Now twice it didn't work out in the Packer's favor but last night it did. What got me was it was the first comeback win in a long time.

    I was talking to my wife about it, and realized I don't remember the last time the Packers had a comeback win at the end of a game. We had comebacks but not like that, and it made me sleep happily about this season last night.

    So I was surprised but pleasantly. Still I think its a win the Packers can study like hell upon.

    I was surprised. After the colts got that TD to go up 8 I kinda turned to the Brewers game that was on at the same time. I was in the chat room. I turned back to the game when the Packers was 3rd and Goal. I did not think we would get the TD and the 2 PT Conversion.
