By now, you’ve all probably read everyone’s take on last night’s embarrassing showing by the NFL. I’m a bit late to the party but I have the benefit of some extra time to digest what took place and having read it all too. I don’t have it figured out, probably never will. But I do know that I feel very disappointed.
I’m not going to break down the numbers, re-hash the stats or talk about the “shoulda, woulda, coulda”. So what am I going to do? I’m just going to shoot straight from the hip. I’m going add this one to the list of disappointments in recent Packer history:
- The Terrell Owens TD catch in the end zone to beat the Pack during the 1998 season playoffs. A loss that ironically was affected by another bad call by a referee as an obvious Jerry Rice fumble was ruled down by contact. Back then there was no instant replay and the call stood. 9ers drove down and. . . .
- 1st playoff loss at Lambeau Field against the Atlanta Falcons (a dome team) during 2002 season playoffs
- 4th and 26 a year later
- The embarrassing playoff loss to the Vikings during the 2004 season playoffs
- The entire 2005 season
- The gut-wrenching NFCCG loss to the Giants during the 2007 playoffs that would be Brett Favre’s last game in a Packer uniform
