  1. You are right LC, how great was it to see Bart Starr at the game. What a class act. My mailman is a Steelers fan and says to me last week "we lead the league with 6 Super bowls"....I had to remind him that the Packers lead with the now 13th "championship"...too many folks think the NFL started in 1967 with SB 1....this guy is my age and I had to remind him that although the Packers have been around a long time, so has the Pittsburgh franchise...told him we did a three-peat in the 60's and won 5 years out of 7 under Vince!! For our Packer fans on the board, you can listen to the celebration tomorrow (Tuesday) from Lambeau on the web at wtmj.com. I'm pretty sure this is going to be televised in Wisconsin.


  2. Somehow I knew that game was not going to be as easy for the Packers as that first drive was -- tough second half but I'll take the result. On to Dallas !! Go Pack Go.

    Any Bears fans here care to weigh in on the Cutler business? Pretty surprising to hear NFL players and the comments they are "tweeting" --- I don't know a hell of alot about Cutler, but I do know he doesn't miss many games (if any) and I don't think he is the type of guy to bail on a championship game.


  3. LC:

    In response as to who I think will win Sunday:

    I will take the Packers winning the Halas trophy, 31-27 and while I'm at it I'll take the Steelers beating the Jets 26-20.

    I got to tell you, as much as I look forward to Sunday, it is going to be a gut wrenching 3 hours for me -- I'm glad the NFC game goes first -- these games are scary.


  4. I'd like to nominate McCarthy Coach of the Year, Thompson executive of the year and give Capers defensive coach of the year, if there is a such thing. Any team that has 14 guys on IR, 6 of them starters, at least of 2 of them pro bowlers, and get the results out of the roster they get, deserve mentioning. Not only have the Packers shown they have great depth, they have won 4 straight playoff (for them the Giants and Bears games were playoff games). Next week's championship game in Chicago should be a great one --- I can't wait!


  5. The Packers nearly gave me a heart attack. Guess you have to be lucky as well as good in these playoffs. They will have to play near perfect next week in Atlanta, that front D line Atlanta features is much better than Philly's -- would like to see the Packers not be so conservative on the D side of the ball -- doing that today almost cost them the game in the 4th quarter. I'm sure Dom Capers will draw up something good for Saturday night.
