Packers find yet another way to win, headed to Super Bowl

NFC Championship Football

The Green Bay Packers are headed back to the Super Bowl after beating the Bears 21-14 in some of the strangest ways possible.

Aaron Rodgers got the headlines in the playoffs, but the Packers have survived this deep into January because of their ability to win games in a variety of ways.  That really showed up Sunday in Chicago.

This win was about their punter Tim Masthay, who pinned Devin Hester back all day.    It was about undrafted player Sam Shields picking off two passes.  It was about the coverage skills of nose tackle B.J. Raji, who scored the only second half points for Green Bay.   It was about Rodgers making a Ben Roethlisberger-like tackle of Brian Urlacher after a costly interception.

Third-string Bears quarterback Caleb  Hanie helped make it interesting, driving the ball inside the Packers’ 30-yard line with under a minute to go before Sam Shields clinched the game with a pick.

This was a game that the Packers could have put away a few times.  Rodgers was picked off twice and didn’t seem to play the same after taking a big shot to the helmet from Julius Peppers in the fourth quarter.   After Raji’s score made it 21-7, Hanie rallied to put together a lightning quick touchdown drive.

This was a game that may be remembered as much for Jay Cutler’s disappearing act as anything the Packers did.   But the contributions the Packers got from throughout the roster show how this team has grown.

James Starks and the running game were huge in the first half.    Greg Jennings had 130 yards receiving.  For the most part, Rodgers’ protection held up well.  The defense thoroughly confused and harassed Cutler while he was in the game without having to blitz much.

Rodgers has undoubtedly improved every season as a starter, but the players around him improved more this year.    This Packers team is about so much more than a passing attack.

And now they are one game away from being Super Bowl champions.

    A win is a win but man, that was ugly.

    They may be the weakest team to ever represent the NFC in the SB. They are doomed for Big Ben wants ” One For The Penis!”

    .
    WOW Caleb a NOBODY had the win and some coach called a timeout to take away that MASSIVE hole the RB had for a first down HOLY omg…………..

    Serves CHI right. I rooted for the Bears, but I don’t feel sorry for them. Like my brother said, if you beat the Pack the last game of the season, they don’t make the playoffs; Bears probably go to the SB.

  6. kennyrogerschicken says: Jan 23, 2011 6:45 PM

    oxycode30 -

    Where are you? You didn’t trash the Pack all week and decide to disappear when they won, did you?

  7. richmondhokie says: Jan 23, 2011 6:45 PM

    What’s scary to me, as a Packer fan, is that Hanie outplayed Rodgers – by a bunch – in that fourth quarter. Rodgers finished with something like a 55 passer rating. That won’t win the Super Bowl, Aaron.

  8. aaronitout12 says: Jan 23, 2011 6:51 PM

    WOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO PACK GO!!

  9. JimmySmith says: Jan 23, 2011 6:51 PM

    For awhile there, I thought it would be two NFC championship games in a row where the team that dominated the game statistically ends up on the short end of the stick.

    But the Packers aren’t the Vikings and found a way to win.

  10. aaronitout12 says: Jan 23, 2011 6:52 PM

    Got to give props to the Bears. Great team, great season. Happy to have another classy organization like them in the North!

  11. gbpackersfan12 says: Jan 23, 2011 6:52 PM

    From one life long Packer fan…. You knew this game would be close, what a great job by both teams, showing the strength of the NFC North. It just feels so good to be a Packer Fan today!

  12. gbfanforever says: Jan 23, 2011 6:53 PM

    awesome! congrats on the great season bears fans, I know this has to hurt

  13. theoriginalcaptainmarvel says: Jan 23, 2011 6:54 PM

    Well at least (hopefully) we won’t have to listen to Packer fans run-their-mouths about how Favre sucks and Rogers is soooo much better. Rogers did nothing today. Give the Packers defense some credit. But I’m sick of hearing about Favre from Packer fans. Favre played great in last year’s NFCC game, but the Vikings had 4 fumbles plus got screwed by the refs.

  14. patriotinvasion says: Jan 23, 2011 6:56 PM

    Last year, I question Drew Brees because I though he was more of a Fantasy Football creation than a true winning QB. He proved me wrong…now Rodgers is one win away from doing the same thing. Since I hate both AFC teams left, I’m rooting for GB all the way…Go Pack Go

  15. dolphins4 says: Jan 23, 2011 6:56 PM

    Where were the Bears today? I wonder if the Bears were paid to lose.

  16. slatetundra07 says: Jan 23, 2011 6:56 PM

    Go Packers
    Sorry Bears, but you played a tough game

  18. sterilizecromartie says: Jan 23, 2011 6:57 PM

    Congrats to GB. The better team certainly won that game.

  21. mkepackfan says: Jan 23, 2011 7:05 PM

    Good job Chicago, you played us tough and certainly stuffed up everything GB could do for 3/4ths of the game.

    Just get some young, drafted WRs (no old re-treads like TO or Ocho Stinko) and some O-line help and you’ll be in our position within a few years.

  22. jimmysee says: Jan 23, 2011 7:05 PM

    Pervy — Aaron texted me again before the game and said this one was for you.

  23. fonetiklee says: Jan 23, 2011 7:06 PM

    Wow. Did you need to change your pants after writing this, Rosenthal?

  24. Wisconsin77 says: Jan 23, 2011 7:08 PM

    Pack won in spite of Rodgers today. What a great team effort!

  25. ohmss21 says: Jan 23, 2011 7:10 PM

    The best thing Jay Quitler did was leave the game! Gave his team a chance to win! Bears still suck! Go Pack Go!

    jimmysmith you moron – the vikes from last yr would mop the floor with your team…but its all irrelevant because its not possible but ah good luck in the superbowl…ahaha just kidding i hope you guys get blown out

    Some where in Hattiesburg, MS, a Bears Julius Peppers jersey is lit on fire.

    pervyharvin -

    Typical Viking jackass. Even if the Packers win the Super Bowl, you still won’t give them any credit.

    Go away, dude, you’re act is tired and your team sucks. Learn to live with it.

  31. footballpen says: Jan 23, 2011 7:19 PM

    The Green Bay Refs won today.

  32. mrcmos says: Jan 23, 2011 7:21 PM

    Pervy & Marvel:

    Why not just admit that you are bitter Viqueen fans that have backed a loser and until you change teams you will always back a whinny, pathetic and sorry team?

    Give the other teams some credit. The Bearse fought hard and the Lions are an up and coming team.

    Enjoy the cellar for years, if not decades to come.

    Now STFU and just GO AWAY!

    When Aaron took off down the side lines on that 20+ yard scramble… If you look at the film… There was a lady in the third row wearing a pink hat.

    He did not wave at her.

    What a Dick.

    Yeah, all Green Bay did was knock off the #3, #1, and #2 seeds in their stadium. Very weak indeed.

    Today the better team won, but Chicago showed they had every right to be there. An incredible game for the rivalry, and a future untold millions for Caleb Hanie.

    Good luck in the SB Green Bay!

  37. medic406 says: Jan 23, 2011 7:26 PM

    Just think….going to the SB even after all of those injuries. Have to give McCarthy and TT some credit. Today is a great day. Go Pack!

  38. scoops1 says: Jan 23, 2011 7:26 PM

    The Packers did the nation a favor today. Now our tax money won’t be wasted on extra security since Obama is staying home to watch the super bowl

  40. rpiotr01 says: Jan 23, 2011 7:27 PM

    Bears D rose up in the second half. That was to be expected. They don’t call it the black and blue division for nothing.

    Bottom line is that GB did a lot wrong and found a way to win. They got a number of breaks too. It happens.

    Frankly I like GBs chances on that fast track in Dallas.

  41. jwil444 says: Jan 23, 2011 7:28 PM

    this just in…..vikes got screwed by the refs last year……………loser.

  42. wafflestomp says: Jan 23, 2011 7:29 PM

    Green Bay Packers are Superbowl bound.
    It still amazes me after everything we’ve been through this year that I can say these words..

    I would just like to send out my heartfelt respect to the Chicago Bears and their fans.
    Classy organization and our true rivals of the North.

    After spending 2 years listening to those whiney vike fans (Thank God they’re going back into their slimy little hovels!) it’s has been great to spar with some classic NFL Football fans.

  43. emoney826 says: Jan 23, 2011 7:30 PM

    Pervy,

    That’s how you win an NFC championship game. Take some notes so that you’ll be ready once you get back there in 10-20 years.

    By the way, the giants were going to beat us. Then the bears were. Then the eagles were. Then the falcons were. And then you prophesied that the bears would beat us. Now the steelers will? When will you quit hating and showing how jealous you are and admit that the packers are just that good? I know you’re a knowledgeable football fan. Give them some credit for once in your life! I wasn’t ashamed to admit that your one year wonder team was good last year.

  44. frumundaman says: Jan 23, 2011 7:35 PM

    Percyharvin:

    worst team to represent then NFC ever?! How about the 4 Vikings teams that made it there and lost?! Your logic, much like Jim Marshall, is running the wrong way.

  45. beauregard says: Jan 23, 2011 7:36 PM

    Congrats to the Pack. The good news is they won’t be facing Davis and Elway again.
    I’m an AFC guy, but I hope the Pack wins it all this year! They’re truly on a mission.

  46. tomnickle says: Jan 23, 2011 7:38 PM

    Does this mean no team in the NFL is ever allowed to complain about injuries going forward?

    J. Finley
    A. Harris
    M. Burnett
    M. Neal
    N. Barnett
    B. Poppinga
    B. Jones
    B. Chillar
    M. Tauscher

    J. Finley

    That’s a lot of important players not in uniform…..wow.

    Well, at least those fans who sold their tickets for $500-600 above face value can take their profits and go to the Pro Bowl.

    I’m sure Hawaii is beautiful this time of year.

  48. pervyharvin says: Jan 23, 2011 7:45 PM

    @ emoney……Yah, you are good. That being said…..are you watching the Steeelers>???? You guys have your work cut out! You must have been the only one to admit the Vikings were good in 2009, most your fans didn’t.

  49. slatetundra07 says: Jan 23, 2011 7:46 PM

    Hey Pervy…you’re on a hot streak with your picks…I hope you continue to pick us to lose!

    Sorry, we’re not allowing any more Queens fans to jump on the bandwagon.

  50. Amadeus says: Jan 23, 2011 7:51 PM

    Wait till A-Rod gets to Dallas. In the dome, he’ll put up 45.

    Pack will beat S—tsburgh by 21.

  51. pervyharvin says: Jan 23, 2011 7:51 PM

    Let me first give you the good news…..you made the SB! Congrats! Now for the bad……The Steelers power offense and stingy defense is going to crush you. I mean that sincerely, no smack. I mean, Tomlin is a Viking …..he knows your stink

  52. rcunningham says: Jan 23, 2011 8:03 PM

    I LOVE how people are STILL falling for Pervy’s act.

    The fact that you can win the NFCG and still be mad at Pervy is astounding.

    It’s not about falling for anything, it’s about disdain for stupidity. I think most of us are guilty of that.

    Pervy is nothing but an insufferable idiotic hater. He predicts a Packers loss every single week. You all see how well that has worked out for him, but he keeps doing it.

    Is it wrong for us to call him out for being the angry inbred fool that he is?

  56. aaronitout12 says: Jan 23, 2011 8:16 PM

    Does it get any better??

  57. emoney826 says: Jan 23, 2011 8:17 PM

    Packer fans only hated because it was the vikings. Any knowledgeable packer fan would have admitted how good the vikings played last year. Hell, you crushed the saints but managed to give it away with the turnovers. Packer fans just didn’t want to see the vikings in the super bowl, just like how Viking fans feel today with the packers. It’s divisional hatred. Nothing wrong with that.

    The steelers offense doesn’t scare me. Their defense does.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    First you make a declarative statement, and then nullify it by admitting it is both irrelevant and impossible. Must have attended the same football school as Col Klink, the king of idiots.

    Your choice of a screen name is even more amusing. When were the Vikings ever a dynasty? The very definition of the word implies that they actually won something and this is the franchise that is 0-4 in Superbowls and 0-5 in their last five NFC championship games. My advice is to go back and get your GED before you post again. You sound like a complete moron, actually that is being redundant considering you are a Viking fan.

    Nice season chicago and a great game to remember for years to come.

    You may have won the battle (NFC North Crown) but you lost the war.

    Next year should be fun. At least chicago fans have a good sense of humor. For example duct taping a packer fan naked to a street sign is classic. Laughed my a$$ off when i read that.

    Vikings, SAY hi to detroit as you pass them on your way to the NFC North basement.

    If the Packers are the weakest team ever to represent the NFC in the Superbowl — what does that say about the cellar-dwelling Vikings — who the Packers beat twice – one of which was a wipeout that got the coach fired!

    Also, interesting claim that the 2009 Vikings would beat the 2010 Packers — of course, that’s only until Brett would throw a late pick and that would be it.

    Vikings fans — take your meds, please.

  63. footballcoach17 says: Jan 23, 2011 8:54 PM

    Rodgers is playing like Manning and Brady when they won their championships. Packers will win it all because the QB position leads and wins Super Bowls. He is playing like a champion. Did you see the heart of a losing QB like Cutler. Told my kids that he is a good example of how you don’t want to play the game.

  64. metalhead65 says: Jan 23, 2011 9:01 PM

    Don’t even say the only reason they won is because of a third string QB- um they whooped cutler to the bench and that was the only reason that guy was even in, and because the Bears just suck. seriously, what is to like about the bears?- actually as a packers fan I love their quarterback!

    As a lifelong Vikings fan, it’s never easy to watch them stink up the field. But that’s exactly what they did in 2010. I’d like to Congratulate Green Bay for winning the NFC. Also, Kudos to Green Bay and Chicago for representing the Black and Blue division proudly in the NFC Championship game. Best division in football in my opinion. Vikes fans, don’t be bitter and trash talk the Packers or their fans. They obviously have the better team right now. Vikes fans, we can only live on the magic of the 2009 season so long. Time to let it go.

    I agree that it is great to see two historic franchises in the Super Bowl. Congrats to the fans of both teams. Two great fanbases (as are Chicago and NYJ).

    This Packer team reminds me of the Cardinals team that was in it a couple years ago. Not a great regular season, but they snuck in to the playoffs and got hot at the right time.

    It is damn hard to bet against Big Ben, though. The guy just has it. He might not put great numbers up, but he keeps drives alive and makes first downs. Every time I watch him, I am amazed by the sixth sense he has.

    I give the edge to the Steelers because I see these two defenses as being equal, but the Steelers have the magic touch on offense. Should be a fun game, though.

    Not likely. Results of Steelers Super Bowls are already decided before they begin. This one probably won’t be any different, and that spells a penalty-filled loss for the Pack. Really wish the Jets had shown up for the game…

  78. badcallsfootball says: Jan 23, 2011 10:20 PM

    too bad the packers win was tainted with bad officiating. It became obvious that the refs were favoring the packers when they called that intentional grounding penalty.

    Didnt they realize it was Caleb Hanie (who?) in there? He was trying to hit his WR his accuracy is just that bad. He has to feel like crap about that call. His aim was so bad that they thought it was intentional grounding.

    congrats packers you beat the bears third string qb who still amost beat you. you can stop whining about how the refs sxrewed in the first gam you guys played,pretty sure they more than made up for it today. you hung on to win and so now your the best in the nfc a conference that everybody made fun of while the bears were winning the division. you barelt win and it was because rodgers had an off day,newsflash he was off because the bears made him off! screw the mutual respect between the teams I hate you and you fans with a passion and will be rooting for the stelers to kick your asses!

    I don’t know what’s better….Bears fans burning the jerseys of their top-10 QB, or watching the somber, sullen mood of the Minneapolis news anchor after the Packers win, mentioning on air how hard this win by the Packers was for many Vikings fans, given how “close” they were last year. (The “Packer Envy” up here knows no bounds…as the daily troll posts of PurvurtHarvy demonstrate every day).

    Very sweet that for the first, and possibly last, time in history the Packers are hoisting the Halas Trophy in Soldier Field!!! MAJOR bragging rights…..now my FIB relatives will finally shut up at family reunions, and heck, my MinnySOEduh neighbors won’t have a team soon to be blowhard in August/fair-weathered in December about. (Ok, maybe that’s too much to expect.)

    congrats packers. as a vikings fan, i know who is going to win it all, and it’s the pack. and probably for the next 10 years as long as you have rodgers. seriously, i think the packers will win the next 5 to 10 superbowls. they can’t be stopped with their youth. i just hope the vikings move so I never have to watch them again.

    Congrats to the Packers and their loyal fanbase

    no one can say you didnt earn this trip to the Super Bowl or didnt earn it. Sometimes Super Bowl teams have a relatively easy path to the big game—at times only needing two home wins to get there.

    Not so for the pack: They won 3 road games and knocked off the no.1, no. and no.3 seed and knocked off one of the scarier teams in the wild card round in the Eagles in Philly. They proved their poise holding off the Eagles and Bears despite late game pushes by the opposition and showed what they can do when they put it all together when they smashed the no.1 seeded Falcons in Atlanta

    No doubt with the Steelers experience, coaching and defense they will be the favorites heading into the SB but as far as Im concerned its dead even

    When Aaron took off down the side lines on that 20+ yard scramble… If you look at the film… There was a lady in the third row wearing a pink hat.

    He did not wave at her.

    What a Dick.
    ————————————————————
    Yeah.
    C’mon A-Rod and drop that football and give her an autograph because PFT ppl think that ladies with pink hats take priority over your duties as a quarter back!
    I sense another PFT headline based on speculative knee jerk reactions without getting Aaron Rodgers side of the story.

    For Metalhead:

    The last time I checked, we beat your first, second and third string Quarterbacks.

    Technically speaking of course.

    Almost forgot … the one truly nice thing about a Packers/Steelers matchup in Dallas … is that it’s got to be one of the Cowboys’ worst nightmares ;)

    Nice job by the Pack today- they beat our Bears but it was fun to see Hanie make it interesting.

    Crazy question- is Capers so adept at game planning that he had the Pack defense so attuned to Cutler’s game that they really didn’t know what to do with Hanie when he got in there, or was it just pure luck that Hanie made some decent throws and the ground game picked up?

    Either way, I’ll be pulling for the Packers in the Super Bowl. Great fans and a great organization, and probably the best place to go see a game. If you’ve never been to Lambeau and you love football and football history, make sure you go, even if you hate the Packers.

    Packers vs. Steelers… damn I love the NFL. What a matchup of two true traditional championship franchises. Should be a fantastic SB.
    ____________

    Not likely. Results of Steelers Super Bowls are already decided before they begin. This one probably won’t be any different, and that spells a penalty-filled loss for the Pack. Really wish the Jets had shown up for the game…

    Shut up idiot. You dont even deserve to enjoy this. You have spewwed your Ted Thompson hate and you have been proven wrong( like Majik) and I was exactly right. I even got the exact score right. I am the Hydra!

    You Pack fans are nothing more than my trained hamsters. Like Jay Quitler, you guys are so fragile and can’t take getting messed with. Thanks for the cheap entertainment losers. Enjoy the next 2 weeks living in hope because the SB loser(YOU) means nothing and is never remembered….

    Yes, I was wrong about Ted. I even admitted it three weeks ago. Let it go already.

    Regardless of my personal feelings toward you, we are both Pack fans, and that makes us allies. Got a tough, tough game coming up on the 6th. Our team needs ALL of our support.

    All of my attempts to discredit the Packers’ success in a game that my team could NEVER win (and, in fact, lost just last season) have failed to upset a fanbase that has long since had enough of my weekly redundant trash talk. I am going to go sit in a corner and cry until I come back here and try it all over again tomorrow.

    Rodgers is playing like Manning and Brady when they won their championships. Packers will win it all because the QB position leads and wins Super Bowls. He is playing like a champion. Did you see the heart of a losing QB like Cutler. Told my kids that he is a good example of how you don’t want to play the game.

    ********

    Yeah, he’s playing like Manning and Brady … on their worst days. Aaron has had two good games in the past five. He had a 55 passer rating against Chicago yesterday. On passing third downs, over the past two or three games, he is 4/22. Not exactly lights out. He’ll have to step up to beat that Pittsburgh D – which is ranked higher than Green Bay’s in total points allowed.

    It is a great time to be a Packer fan…..and a bad time to be an Eagle and Viqueen fan….The Bears are still a class act…Someone had to loose…..too bad it was them….
    Go Packers
