Packers win fourth Super Bowl

AP

In December 2009, the Packers took a six-point lead over the Steelers with 2:06 to play.  Starting from his own 14, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger led the team to a one-point win.

In February 2011, the Packers took a six-point lead over the Steelers with 2:07 to play.  Starting from his own 13, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger couldn’t get it done.

And that sums up the outcome of Super Bowl XLV.  As expected, the game entailed plenty of scoring.  The Steelers fought back from an 18-point deficit to keep it interesting throughout the second half.  After cutting the score from 21-10 to 21-17, a sense emerged that the Steelers not only would catch the Packers but blow by them.  When Ben Roethlisberger badly missed a wide open Mike Wallace on what would have been a 44-yard touchdown pass, the surge of momentum evaporated, punctuated by a 52-yard Shaun Suisham field goal attempt that looked like a postseason kick from the foot of Mike Vanderjagt.

The Packers eventually pushed the lead back to 11 with an Aaron Rodgers touchdown pass to Greg Jennings (their second of the night), but the Steelers didn’t quit.

A 66-yard drive capped by a 25-yard touchdown pass from Roethlisberger to Mike Wallace and a two-pointer on an option play to Antwaan Randle El cut the gap to three.  A long drive by the Packers, which nearly resulted in a Larry Fitzgerald-style catch-and-run from Greg Jennings, ended with the three-pointer that pushed the Green Bay lead back to six.

Five plays later, a fourth-down attempt from Roethlisberger to Wallace hit the turf, and Vince Lombardi was waiting to welcome his boys home.

“We’re going back to Titletown baby!” said safety Nick Collins, who returned a first-half interception for a touchdown.  “This is big.  It’s coming back home.  The Vince Lombardi Trophy is coming back home.”

It wasn’t the prettiest or most exciting of Super Bowls, but the Steelers had something that, early in the game, it appeared they wouldn’t — a chance to win the game late.  In plenty of past situations, they’ve pulled it off.  Tonight, they didn’t.

So congrats to the Packers on getting their fourth Super Bowl win.  With the Cowboys and 49ers at five and the Steelers at six and a strong nucleus of talent in Green Bay, the Packers could be getting to No. 5, No. 6, and maybe No. 7.

  1. Titletown USA baby! Aaron Rodgers now belongs in the conversation for top QB in the league. Clutch under pressure. That completion to Jennings was a laser.

  2. As was the case all year, Green Bay was able to overcome key injuries and will themselves to victory.

    All respect to the Pittsburgh Steelers, who were able to overcome devastating turnovers to give themselves a shot at winning at the end. A great Super Bowl between two storied franchises.

  3. Surprised. The Steelers on paper were better,

    Better except for the two picks their great QB threw.

    How does that taste, Pittsburgh?

    Triple H called. He says, “The Packers won and if you aren’t down with it I have two words for you. Suck it!”

    Meanwhile, I’ll watch your hockey team tank and your triple A baseball team continue to suck, and laugh.

    Laugh.

    Did I mention, laugh?

  4. To all the Steeler fans, congrats on a great season. I honestly thought we were going to lose the game, but somehow pulled it out. I must say when I thought the Pack would lose I just couldn’t be upset that the Steelers would win it. It was such a great game, and a true microcosm of the Pack’s season with Drive, Woodson and Shields all going out and backups having to step up and make plays.

    GO PACK GO!!!!

  5. Sour grapes much Stairwayto7? Hilariously ironic name though. By the way, the Packers have 13 NFL Championships. Think about that when you’re wearing your 6 Super Bowls T-Shirt.

  6. As a person that hates the Steelers, their stupid towel waiving fans, and Brett Favre, this it pretty nice.

    Except now we no one thing for sure, Brett Favre is coming back for sure now.

  7. Congrats to my Packers…goddamn it though it sucks having to work tomorrow!

    Grats again to the Steelers…despite your turnovers, you were right there to the end.

  8. Where are you now PervyHarvin?!?!?!?!?! Go ahead and pray that a QB falls to you in the draft or you’ll be rooting for the LA Vikings!

  9. All in all…a very entertaining Super Bowl between two great franchises. As a Patriots fan, I’m happy our legacy in this era gets a little boost of preservation.

    Now let’s get this CBA signed and do it again next fall…

  10. I, II, XXXI, and nkow XLV. Man, I’ve got a high right about now that can ONLY be produced naturally.

    Where’s Pervy at?

  11. Bears and Bears fans: Suck it
    Viking and Vikings fans: Eat it
    Brett Favre: Eat a fat one
    Big Ben: I hope you get raped by a much larger man….but mostly, you suck

  12. Good game on both sides. Turnovers proved to be the difference maker in this one though. Congrats to my team for the win and congrats to the Steelers on a great season as well.

  13. Awesome game for my bots from Cal, Aaron Rodgers and Desmond Bishop!!!! Parabens!

    and as a Niner fan… FU Mike Nolan FU FU FU you insecure little Napoleon! I hope the hemorrhoids you have in Miami never end!

  14. Give it a rest on the missed deep ball to Wallace. It was a very hard throw, had to be right on, and couldn’t be underthrown as he had a guy a step behind him. Just because the dumbass on the teevee says he missed an “easy” throw doesn’t mean it’s true. And I’m a Steelers hater.

  15. It was a good year two of the nfls beloved people Vick (comeback player of the year that came back from i guess torturing and killing dogs) and Ben ( the rapist) didn’t win. Congrats packers

  16. HAHAHA I’m so glad the Pack won. After the Steelers hosed my Dolphins with their Pittsburgh bred officials they are my most hated team behind the Yets. Good game Pack to have that many starters on IR and loose your best defensive player in the 1st half and you still come away with the win? Very well played, you deserved it!

    ++++++++++++++++++++++

    How does this idiot spell the NFL’s most commoniy misspelled name (Favre) and then totally whiff on “people”?

    I assume from his moniker that this guy is a disgruntled front-running Steelers fan. I’m pretty sure most Steelers fans aren’t this juvenile… and moronic.

  18. WOW! What happened? Did the Rooney’s forget to pay off the Refs?!?
    I wasn’t really rooting so much for the Packers, I was rooting against the Stealers.
    Stealers are done, Rapestburger showed how ‘good’ he really is…Fat, bloated loser.
    Way to go Packers, beat the most overrated franchise in the NFL.

  19. Congratulation to the Packers on a tough fought well deserved win.
    Somehow, losing to the Packers isn’t as hard a pill to swallow as had it been somebody else…

    Enjoy the win. You earned it.

    Oh and uh, thanks to the Pack for making it as good a game as it was supposed to be. Right down to the wire.
    No complaints here.

  20. If you are a true Packers fan, I say congratulations. That was a well-deserved win for one of the best and classiest organizations in the NFL.

    If you were just rooting against the Steelers because you don’t like them, I say eat my crap.

  21. great game to watch….the packers scoring that last td cost me 4500 bucks in my box pool but such is life. lets hope these idiots get this labor dispute settled soon….im already missing the greatest game in the world.

  22. Congratulations Packers fans. I’m thankful we were able to come back and make a game of it. Thought your defense was quite impressive despite losing your star corner. Happy for Woodson that his injury didn’t keep him from being on the field to celebrate. Not nearly as painful losing this one as SBXXX–probably because the 1995 team never had their moment and these players did in SBXLIII. Hope you all enjoy yours.

  24. Report: Pervyharvin seen wearing a cheesehead and teetering on the edge of the 35W bridge over the Mississippi in Minneapolis. Police are on the scene.

    more news as it breaks.

  25. Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers from Steeler Nation. You guys outplayed us nearly the entire game and deserved to win.

    Let’s just hope the powers that be can figure this thing out, so this won’t be the last football game we see for quite some time.

  26. The Packers earned it. I’m at least proud of how much the Steelers overcame this year to even make it to that point. Even down 21-3, they fought to the end. Can’t lose perspective, Steelers fans — these past 10 years have been awesome.

    And thank you, Aaron Rodgers, for deservedly knocking Peyton Marino… er, Manning… down yet another peg.

  27. What stood out for the Steelers in the Jets playoff game became worse here – the Steelers were not able to close out the game as effectively as they should have. Granted the Packers did not look like closers even in beating Philly and Chicago, but they showed more such ability than the Steelers did.

    This was another exciting Superbowl – and fifteen years ago who could imagine saying that after decades of Superbowls that never lived up to the hype.

  28. The Patriots Team of Decade/last 10 years debate ended tonight…if it was even a debate. Now Brady, Manning, and Ben have LOST a Super Bowl…but Brady still stands above them all with 3 rings and 2 MVPs.

    Steeler fans – this game reminds me a lot of our loss in 2007 (short of that whole 18-0 thing). THE REASON IS – you guys have an aging team like we did then. Ward, Farrior, Harrison, Keisel, Smith, Taylor, Polamalu, Randle El, Hampton, and Clark are ALL OVER 30 with some of them entering their mid-30’s. Good luck with that…

    PS – for anyone who wants to drop some weak spygate non-story comment, remember that the Patriots have gone 16-0, 11-5, 10-6, and 14-2 since with a rebuilding team. The Steelers haven’t done much since Rape-Gate either 😉

  29. stairwayto7 –

    Actually, the Steelers are done, and the Packers are the champions. Keep living in the land of make believe – you have been for the last two weeks.

  30. As a lifelong Pittsburgh resident, I have to say that I am absolutely sick to my stomach. It’s not because the Steelers lost, it’s the realization that the Pirates are that much closer to opening day.

  31. Steelers will be abck next year easily! Bungals are a mess, Browns are the Browns and the Ravens have slow wr’s and want ray lewis out of there! Steelers 12 wins and anothe rtrip to the super bowl and a championship! Packers will fight for a wild card yet again!

  32. One of the nicest things was NOT seeing the trophy handed to a fat-cat owner.

    It was a real team effort.

  33. Where are all of the Steelers blow hards that talked big all week? Suck it.

    For the non-blow hards, great game. Ben sucks, but Mendenhall is an incredible running back. Your defense is legit.

    Tauscher, Clifton, Woodson, Collins, RODGERS, McCarthy, all deserved this. Gotta love the veterans getting their returns! What a crazy ride this season has been. Lombardi is coming home!

  34. Congratulations to the Packers. A great organization, that overcame lots of adversity. It shows what can happen when a team refuses to make excuses.

    Congrats to the Steelers on a great season as well. Any fans of other teams that use this game as a chance to take shots need to realize that ther’s only one team better than the Steelers right now.

  36. As a Viking fan, it kills me to say this but here goes…Congratulations to the Packers on a great year. They had tons of injuries and made no excuses. Their second (and third) tier guys elevated their games. They are going to be very good for a long, long time. The NFC North has become a very strong division. Poor Farve..he set the Vikings franchise back a few years and now he has been partially eclipsed by Rodgers in Green Bay. Poor guy, he probably spent the Super Bowl taking pictures of his d*ick.

  37. I’ll sleep good now knowing that the rapist didn’t win in my teams house!! Congrats to Aaron Rodgers! No more assinine Favre questions.

  38. In related news a ugly little monkey wearing a purple #4 Jersey was found lying dead in a Minneapolis gutter with two bullet holes in its head and chest. The cell phone clutched in its little hand supposedly was still pointed at its’ crotch and one of the creature’s crocs was missing.
    Preliminary testing of saliva found on the monkey’s genitals has a C.O.D.I.S. HIT.
    The DNA matches a known scumbag named Pervy Harvin.
    Usually he is easily found being a boisterous ass on PFT but probably will be in hiding after this HISTORIC PACKER 13th Championship

  39. Congrats Packers. What a gutsy and resilient team. All those injuries during the year and losing Woodson and Driver today and they somehow dug deep and would not be denied. Looking forward to next season (I hope) as we get back Finley, Grant, etc. This can be the beginning of something very special. The Lombardi is returning to its rightful place.

  40. I’m just glad this SB wasn’t disastrously officiated like the Seattle debacle. Imagine the Jordy Nelson catch and rumble to 2 yard line is taken away for a phantom hold…. a Nelson touchdown called back for a ticky tack interference….a Jennings TD called out of bounds (DJack pylon play)…..etc. etc. etc…….

    NO, I can’t let that one go. It was that brutal.

    Congrats to the Pack.

  41. The Packers look to be way better next year.

    They’ve got a Super Bowl-winning roster, then get their IR starters and Johnny Jolly back, and Ted Thompson’s next masterful draft (7 – 9 picks depending on compensatory picks to be awarded) and undrafted free agent singings (like the NEXT Frank Zombo and Sam Shields lurking out there!).

    Go Pack Go!

    (What a game!)

    somebody has his crabby pants on!!

  43. PervyHarvin,
    I hope you were able to get reception of the game with your rabbit ears in your trailer. Just wanted to let you know that the Green Bay Packers are World Champions! How do you like them apples? Give me some feedback for some laughs girl.

  44. Congrats to the classy steelers fans for your comments……never went on many pitt. postings….now i now what you meant about classless cheatriot fans…..packer message boards have pervy and you have patriotinvasion……maybe they are the same person? You never see them together……could there be TWO complete wastes of oxygen??????????

  45. @patriotinvasion …

    None of us care enough about you to drop anything about the Patriots. Get over yourself. There was no “Rape-Gate,” jackass. That was an accusation leveled against an individual that had nothing to do with the team. And the evidence showed that it was a false accusation. You guys have a former player serving time for raping one of his students.

    You must be pretty obsessed with the Steelers to be posting this same garbage on every thread. How sad for you. Steelers fans aren’t doing anything other than congratulating the Packers. It’s called good sportsmanship. You should try it sometime.

  46. Patriots left one on the table here……..they’d have crushed Pittsburgh like they always do, and the Pack was wobbling in this game bad. Woulda Coulda Shoulda…. but they lost to a team with better FEET.

  47. Pervy Harvin

    I know you are probably busy training either with the Army Rangers, Brock Lesnar or Prince’s Dance Squad. But please come back and tell me what you are thinking…..F’n coward.

  48. huge steelers fan here and hate making excuses but common. How can the D go alllll game getting burned by the slant pattern and not correct that? seriously how could they not drop a lineback into middle coverage considering that GB wasn’t gonna run the ball.

    And, is William G.a-y Mike Tomlin’s nephew or cousin? Cause he probably couldnt make any other practice squad in the NFL. What did he get burned for? about 11 completions and 2 tds. yea hes definitely a starting corner.

  49. I thought the stealers were going to win after the phantom facemask call early in the second half. I guess Rooney’s check bounced.

  50. They said the Packers had too many injuries. They said we had a finesse defense. They said we couldn’t win without a running game. They said our QB couldn’t win the big game. They were wrong. Go Pack Go!

  51. Yeah, Go Pack Go!

    Enjoyed the battle with the Steelers – great organization and tough team. Wonderful fans to boot.

    All in all a good Super Bowl. Not the prettiest but we’ll take it. Congrats to Pittsburgh on a great season.

  52. Was it me or did Fox butcher the broadcast from an audio standpoint?

    The entire 1st half sounded like we were in an airplane hanger. The crowd sounded faker than a Madden 98 video game crowd. With all the “Issues” this week and thru kickoff, at least we know Indianapolis doesn’t have much to do to raise the low bar set by Jerry World.

  53. It is great as a non Packer fan to relish in the heartache and pain of the Steeler fans. You all act like you invented the game. No you can swallow a loss like the rest. This is fun to watch. Thank you Packers.

    Haven’t looked up Ben’s stats yet. But I thought Neil O”Donnell was making a come back tonight. Stats and rating I am guessing were almost the same. Ben = Neil O’Donnell 2.0.

    Just kidding. It is so much fun getting even!

  54. Outstanding GREEN BAY PACKERS World Champions
    Now would all you TT haters and Brent lovers please STFU
    To Minnesota fans the Super Bowl is our Super Bowl Unlike you who thinks beating the Packers twice is the Super Bowl (sucks to be you 0-2 against the World Champs this year

    ———————————————-

    No, MOST Steelers fans are class acts. It all flows down from their classy owner, classy head coach, and their classy town. As a Packers fan, I was totally impressed by the things Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin said in the post-game interview—I’ve never heard a head coach give the other teams nothing but props, while making no excuses whatsoever for his team losing. WOW!!! I will always be a Packer fan #1, but I’ve wanted an AFC team I felt worthy to root for, and by the class I’ve witnessed from the Steelers and most of their fans prior to and after this Super Bowl, they have definitely become my 2nd favorite team in the NFL. They’ve earned my respect. As for the game, it hurts to lose no matter what the score, but I hope Pittsburgh fans feel proud that their team fought all the way to the end, that it truly did go down to the wire as most of us predicted—to be honest, I’m still somewhat shocked that my Packers won in the end. The Packers didn’t really have a “definitive” win over the Steelers–the Packers didn’t “dominate”, they merely “prevailed” over the Steelers. If this game had 5 quarters, the Steelers most likely would have won. So again, props to Steeler Nation. All the best to you and your team next year, that is, except until our paths cross again, hopefully in the next Super Bowl!!!

  56. Just because the dumbass on the teevee says he missed an “easy” throw doesn’t mean it’s true. And I’m a Steelers hater.
    ————————————————

    You mean three time Super Bowl winner/SB MVP Troy Aikman …… THAT “dumbass”???

    I wonder what he knows about quarterbacking in a Super Bowl?

  57. So does this end the “Roethlisberger is elite” argument? 3 Super Bowls, 0 elite-type performances, 0 MVPs.

  58. Congrats to GB and Rodgers, a great story.
    I just want to minor rant a little here.
    You folks just won a super bowl.
    At this point there are 10 posts from you GB fans calling out a pervyharvin, who is most likely a thirteen year old kid?
    Not the spirit of Green Bay, nor does it reflect the class of your team, nor the reputation of you fans.

    Bring up your game, people.
    When you lose say nothing, when you win, say less.

    And remember, the best way to deal with trolls is to ignore them?
    Thanks, and congrats again on the win.

    —–

    We hear what you’re saying, and agree with you in general, but apparently (?) you must not come here very often thoughout the whole year. You see, there are “trolls” (which, as you rightly say, you ignore), and then there is Pervyharvin–not sure he is a loyal Viking “fan” as much as he is a loyal Packer hater who makes trolling Packer threads a career. If you hang out here the whole year, it won’t take long to understand what I’m saying.

    Good luck to your Steelers next year!!

    Secondly, understand that there is a ton of enmity between Packers and Vikings fans (and Pervy happens to be a Minneapolis Viking “fan”, or at least a Packer hater par none).

  60. I can not believe how many people are talking about pervyharvin. His popularity and legend grows with each individual that mentions his nam. I do not know him and this is my first post on here but seems weird he would receive such accolades.
    I am a Minnesota Vikings fan and I can honestly say I am not thrilled with the packers winning, Not for the dislike of the fans or any other reason other than a rival.
    I congratulate the Packers and their fans on their team win of the super bowl. It is an achievement i would like to see my team achieve someday. But for now hats off to the packers.

  61. Great win Packers! Your fans deserve this. Maybe my Broncos need to look how this team was built. Class team with not a lot of talk. They just played. One thing JAY CUTLER should learn is what it takes to be a TEAM LEADER. He gets hurt and does not leave the bench to cheer his team on during game. He can get up to walk stairs the next night at a Steak-house though. C.Woodson breaks his collarbone and he is in obvious pain yet he is up non stop cheering his team on.That’s the difference in being a real team leader.

  62. Congrats to GB, you deserve it. To Pittsburgh fans: HAHAHAHA!!! The most obnoxious, classless fanbase in all of sports. Go cry in your dishrag! Nothing was more satisfying than watching James Harrison walk off the field dejected and pissed.

  63. I’ll bet Neil O’Donnell secretly loved seeing the Steelers lose this game.

    Now maybe (some of) the Pittsburgh fans will stop treating him like he was the Steeler version of Bill Buckner.

    The fans forget how their team should not have even been in that game in the first place. The refs blew the call on Stewart’s TD catch. The replays clearly showed Stewart stepping out of the back of the end zone before catching the ball… and the ref saw him do it, too but didn’t throw the flag.

    Fortunately, the refs couldn’t hand this game to the Steelers, like they had VS the 1995 Colts or the 2005 Seahawks or the 1979 Oilers…

  64. I think both the Packers and the Steelers have now proven you can’t ever count out the 6th seed.

    Epic run. Fantastic finish.

    To be the best you have to beat the best.

  65. Wow!

    Their team has just had an outstanding season and finished it with a well earned championship and some, not all but way too many, of the GB fans show their true colors by making such classless comments. Distasteful & disgusting, but it’s what has become common place the past few seasons on this site.

    Stay classy GB fans!

    (they will now validate my comment by all voting a thumbs down)

  66. Would love to offer my congrats to a great game plan executed by the Black Eyed Peas. You have a true shot at repeating!

    As far as the game, ashamed the Steelers didn’t come to play. Anyone could see how flat they were. They played half speed and still was in it to the end.

  67. They say true class is shown by how you handle victory. Now the world sees the lack of class displayed by Packer fans on this story. I need not say anything.You fans hung yourselves.

  68. Just read the story again and this time paid attention to the last line – “, the Packers could be getting to No. 5, No. 6, and maybe No. 7.”

    Sure, because history, especially recent history, has shown us how easy it is to win three or four championships over a four to five year period. Injuries, free agency, age or a bounce of the ball has detoured more than one dynasty – just ask the Saints.

    Also keep in mind that if a play or two in the Eagles, Bears and Steelers games goes the other way they don’t even have No. 4. That’s how close the NFL is and how easily fortunes can change.

    Just saw another high-lite on TV – damn Rodgers throws a beautiful ball!

    You must not have been around here after the Steelers won their last title.

    There were plenty of obnoxious Steeler fans here gloating and acting like asses after the Steelers won.

    So Pittsburgh fans need to suck it up. The Steelers lost so deal with it.

    Anyone who spent any time here trash talking about how “great” Steelers are needs to “man up” and take their medicine when they lose.

    It’s what you get for running your mouths…

    No wonder. All you little boys like quittsburghsquealers thought we’d whine like you do over a loss and instead we’ve done nothing but congratulate the Packers (except for stairwayto7, but we try to keep him locked in the basement most of the time). Class speaks for itself. So does classlessness. Just keep talking, 8man.

    Oh, and quittsburghsquealers … my issues with O’Donnell aren’t about how he played in SBXXX but about how he behaved afterward.

    @dwhitehurst …

    Congrats on your win 🙂 Thought of you last night. Know you were celebrating. Thanks for the kind words about the Steelers.

  73. As a Steeler fan, feeling a little dejected (and hungover!) today, but congrats to the packers and their real fans ( not just Steeler or Viking haters) on your SB win.

    Rodgers played well (he threw some real lasers), but I’m not sure that you could rate his performance as one of the best of all time. That being said, when we turned the ball over he made the plays to turn them into points.

    Steelers fans have nothing to hang your heads about, we were down 21-3 and still had an opportunity to win the game in the final two minutes. Using up those 2 timeouts early in the second half may have cost us the chance to organize a more controlled drive, but again congrats to the pack for holding off the steelers and hanging on for the win.

    GB is a class organization as are the majority of your fans. Hope there is football next year so the Steelers can get their revenge on GB in next years Superbowl!

    But Since you said Super Bowl T-shirts, then Steelers will enjoy 6 while the Packers will enjoy 4.

    Small details I know, however the above gives a much more potent “trask talking” statement.

    Stay classy Greenbay!

  75. I’ve noticed GB fans think they’re being classy, but their classless-ness has just been replaced with smugness. And still all I hear is Favre. Well while playing for the Vikings, Favre had his best year (2009), best game (446 yards vs AZ 2010), and best play (TD throw vs SF 2009, ESPY winner). Packer fans will never be able to take that away from him.

  76. Pittsburgh has a great team and great fans. (The fans are maybe a little spoiled, but that’s not really their fault.) Anyway, to be the best you have to beat the best, and the Packers did that.

  77. Congrats to the Pack faithful, well, my good buds in the Green Bay Covenant anyways.

    The rest of you cheeseheads can die a slow death.

    Deb,

    Condolences in your loss. Heck, I could only start “celebrating” after the incomplete on 4th &5. That’s a tribute to your resilient Steelers. Before that Packer nation was sweating bullets…that Big Ben might pull out another last minute victory, like he did last year on the last play of the game against the Pack.

    But hey, you can’t win em all. It just was the Packers night this time. Hopefully we’ll see both our teams in the playoffs next year. I don’t have to tell you and Steeler nation to stay classy. You simply are classy. Can’t wait to visit Pittsburgh again (I have a relative in Oakmont).

    Good luck in the draft!!!!

  79. Congrats GB! Great playoff team! Still takes 50 something points to beat Rodgers postseason!

    Steelers had a great year too, can’t win them all.

    Guys this game has nothing to do with the Pats, come on man.

    Smugness?? Ok Farve Lover… here is your daily dose of reality:

    2010 Packer Dream Season

    1.) Favre comes back for one more run… bumb ankle and all.
    2.) Favre and Vikes fans get what they want… Randy Moss.
    3.) A-Rodge and Packers sweep the Vikings. Favre adds bumb shoulder and hip to the list.
    4.) Favre gets accused of sexting. Has his schmeckle plastered all over the net.
    5.) Moss and Vikes lose to Patriots. Favre takes one on the chin, Moss gets cut by Childress.
    6.) Childress gets canned.
    7.) FAVRE GOES DOWN!! Streak ends…
    8.) Metrodome collapses.
    9.) Favre finishes season on the bench. Tells Bears Peppers to “Go beat the Packers.”
    10.) Favre watches as the Pack topples the Bears TWICE in successful quest to bring the Title back to Titletown.

    Priceless… couldn’t have written up a more perfect script.

  81. Lots of belly aching going on about “classless” fans. Seems to me the complaints are coming from poor losers. Just sayin’…

    As for the game… if A-Rodg had a group of receivers who could hold on to the ball- he may have thrown for 400+ yds and at least one more TD. The Packers continue to show a GREAT ability to overcome their own mistakes… something the Steelers couldn’t do when it counted. That was the difference in this game.

  82. Let the haters hate. Say whatever you want. It won’t change the fact that the Packers won the Superbowl.

    Congrats to the Packers.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Thanks, pervy.

    Honestly, I never thought I’d see you say something like that. It takes a lot. It means a lot, too.

  84. Packer fan reality check …

    Oct 24, 2010 – ball pops loose as Quarless hits ground, refs mistakenly call GB TD / Shiancoe catch properly ruled Vikes TD on field, inexplicably overturned by moron on replay / NFL admits blown calls but referee gaffes allow Pack to somehow squeak by Vikes 28-24. That (plus Jets play easily their worst game of year vs. GB) allows Pack to reach 10 wins and squeak into playoffs as final seed.

    Jan 9, 2011 – Eagles blow Wild Card game as NFC’s best kicker tries to play through a serious family matter , misses two easy field goals and allows GB to squeak by 21-16

    Jan 15, 2011 – Falcons stupidly spy on Rodgers as GB easily wins divisional

    Jan 23, 2011 – GB gets ANOTHER break as Cutler injured, but Pack has to hold off a late Bear rally led by their 3RD STRING QB (lol) to squeak by again 21-14

    (SB win ok, nobody wanted to see Roethlisburger win anyway …)

    Now, somebody, anybody – you too Mike – here’s your challenge: SHOW ME A LUCKIER RUN TO THE SUPER BOWL THAN THE 2010 PACKERS.

    I’m not hating, just sayin’ … GB fans you’d always rather be lucky than good, and this year YOUR TEAM WAS … so knock off the dynasty bs, enjoy the good luck you had this year, and better prepare for the pendulum of fortune to swing the other way next year. (I’m thinking more Rodgers injuries and/or a Clay Matthews steroid suspension are most likely scenarios).
