  • I wonder how many shit stories will be written on ESPN etc blaming the GB lack of a playoff bye on the Seattle game and not on the fact they lost 5 games?? What do you think?

    Maybe it's good we didn't get the bye then. We have to go on the road for multiple games and play the wildcard game. We have zero advantage in the playoffs, we must earn it. There will be no *

  • I hope that somebody in the national media points out how disengenous that argument really is. It's absurd (as we all know) to blame something that happened in WEEK THREE (!!!) for the rest of their year. They had destiny in their own hands for the next 13 games (and, most importantly, the definitive Game #16). I hope Minnesota beats them again.

  • My response would be if the Packers wanted the bye, their crap defense shouldn't have Christian Ponder put up stats that made him look like Joe Montana.

    That is how it should be but I have lost all repect for the Media. They are all frauds. They dont give a damn about facts but rather manipulating all the people to their point of view. They want to control the thinking of us all. I refuse.

  • God I hope so :3: , The Media needs to console the Porkers.
    Those stupid Temporary Refs. should have been coached by the regulars on being bias to the crybabies.
    Seahawks deserved that win when Chancellor batted down the ball in an earlier play, the Packers were GIFTED a PI call for them to continue on for their TD which shouldn't have been.

  • And there it was. It just came up on the NFL Network. Surprisingly the usual talking heads on there said that if the Packers could have gotten the bye by taking care of busniess today, and that it's time to turn the page.

    Oh just wait. I am sure ESPN or CBS will have an article or 2 of spin in the next week that will say the Fail Mary was the fault of GB not getting a by. I will put money on it. It will happen!

    OK the bet is on. One article by the media will take a couple of hours to do to get the right spin. We have taken a total of 15 minutes making a few posts. True the posts have taken time to be added but that is the nature of a forum.

    LOL I like your post but I am not sure we are "Whining" more than we are speculating on their agenda.

    I like the idea, but you should have had a "Who cares, the Seahawks beat every one of the Packer's primary competition for that bye week and the Packers simply weren't good enough to close the deal so enjoy the rematch against Minnesota next weekend" option.

  • Don Banks at SI delivers!

    So now we know what the Week 3 victory they had stolen from them in Seattle cost the Packers: the No. 2 seed in the NFC, and a first-round bye. No small matter there.

    With Green Bay's loss at Minnesota, the Packers ended the season 11-5, a half-game behind San Francisco (11-4-1) in the battle for the No. 2 seed. At 12-4, without the replacement refs' game-ending fiasco on that Monday night in CenturyLink Field, Green Bay theoretically would have been in position to lose Sunday to the Vikings and still earn a much-desired week off to start the playoffs.

    Maybe the media is, but Packer fans aren't whining over it except for a few who probably whine about everything. Like you said, we had our shot at the bye against Minn. We lost. Was a great game. AP is unbelievable. We're in the playoffs, we're at home next week. We ain't bitchin'. Packers may actually play some D next week. If so they'll win.

    There's pluses and minuses to having a bye anyhoo.

  • Sick of people on .net talking about fail Mary.


    We did lose the game. Tate didn't catch the ball and we were awarded with the win.

    So what? if the Packers have beaten the Seahawks they could had lost to the Rams and Arizona.


    Let the Media talk about it, it's their jobs but stop posting it on here.

  • Yup here is the first from Don Banks this is a quote. The link was posted a few comments back

    So now we know what the Week 3 victory they had stolen from them in Seattle cost the Packers: the No. 2 seed in the NFC, and a first-round bye. No small matter there.

    With Green Bay's loss at Minnesota, the Packers ended the season 11-5, a half-game behind San Francisco (11-4-1) in the battle for the No. 2 seed. At 12-4, without the replacement refs' game-ending fiasco on that Monday night in CenturyLink Field, Green Bay theoretically would have been in position to lose Sunday to the Vikings and still earn a much-desired week off to start the playoffs.

    It's spilt milk, to be sure, but for the team from the nation's dairy land, it was a significant mistake. Teams with first-round byes are one homefield win away from playing for the conference championship. Instead, Green Bay will have to win twice to get to the NFC title game, with at least one of those games coming either at Atlanta or San Francisco.
