Packers have heart

As bad as this loss was, it wasn't as bad as the NFC Championship OT Loss to the Giants in 2007. Part of it was because we were so close to knocking off the Patriots in the Super Bowl, and part of it was because of how much heart the Packers showed on the road down 31 - 10 in the third quarter in a real life madden game where your D didn't play like it should have. Kurt Warner had the perfect game, and ARodge matched him step for step except for a few mistakes. Even a die hard Bears fan emailed me, "That was one hell of a comeback. Too bad the worst player on the field made the deciding play. It's a shame that Rogers didn't connect on the 1st down play, that WR was as wide open as you can get in the NFL downfield. Maybe a bit more experience will let him throw that with a bit more air where it's a certain catch or pass interference? In the end, Rogers holding onto the ball too long cost the Packers, but the future is bright there, unfortunately (for the bears). I was hoping to see Rogers vs Favre one more time this year. I don't know if Dallas is really that good or has Philly's number, but they look real good on both sides of the ball. Romo still has a case of the yips back there from time to time, he ducks out of throws a lot where someone like Rogers or Warner takes the big hit to make the completion. " Thank you entire 2009 Green Bay Packers Team, you wouldn't go down without a fight, and I appreciate it.
