Green Bay is now 3-5 at home in the playoffs since 2001! That is a bigunreal stat there. Makes you wonder how a good
team can lose at home so many times in the playoffs!

Green Bay's not that good. They won a poor division. There really bad defense would have exposed them at some point along the way. This was their best shot. Where is Clay Matthews, they really needed a game breaking play.

It's all on Drew Brees now to stop it from being a black quarterback in the Super Bowl.

That rookie afleet hyde could have ended that drive with the int that went through his hands but of course we won't hear about the afleet mistakes the morning after. Only the mental lapses by the white athletes.

Let's face it of all the remaining teams brees' defense is the weakest. He will need to win shootouts for the Saints to have a chance. Sean Peyton needs to open up the offense and just let Brees air out because the Saints defense is like night and day. I hope Rob Ryan has the Saints defense prepared next week and hopefully the week after.

The rest of the NFC playoffs is unwatchable. Zulu priest Brees and his chocolate team will get slaughtered in Seattle, and who gives a **** about SF vs CAR? The NFC title game will be an equally loathsome affair. This is the unfortunate reality I was talking about. It's now AFC or bust.

Well, I tried. At least I did that.

The black quarterback campaign is in full force, and they dominate the NFC now. When your choices are Scam, Krapernick, Midget (somehow never gets a pass batted down) Wilson and Zulu leader Drew Brees, you know we're supporting the wrong sport.

Krapernick was awful most of this season, but come playoff time he was miraculously able to stroll into freezing Green Bay and come out on top of the great Rodgers. Just like Scam, who again was mediocre most of the time, he will be lauded as a genuine superstar.

What are the odds that the playoff games featuring the only two teams worth rooting for in the NFC would end identically? Both white friendly teams losing on their home field, in cold weather, which should have given them a considerable advantage, on literally last second FGs? What is a DWF to do, but demand more black players?

Agreed. I will root for Brees and company in the nfc but if it's Brees and said AFC team in the SB i'm going with the AFC team.

Rogers needed to stick the ball in the end zone the last series. They wasted a play with run with Cobb and didn't throw to Jordy inside the 10. Hyde could have sealed it with a catch - but that was somewhat excusable. Jared Bush on the other hand should never play in the NFL again after that dimwitted move. That would have been ball game. My wife even knew Krapernick was going to run on third down.

Can it get any more loathsome than sf vs carolina? Uggh. It makes you want to vomit.

Mike Mcharty's play-calling can be head-scratching at times. The Packers wasted 3 good series in which they came away with 3 total points. When your defense sucks as bad as it does, you need to score points in almost every drive. Unless GB had a 2 TD lead going into the last 4 minutes, they were always going to lose that game in predictable fashion.

About the same odds as KC and Cincy both losing to less black dominated teams.

I don't buy the claim that cold weather favors the home team (and anyway it wasn't cold in Cincy and Philly). Teams play at most a game or two in cold weather each year, and where someone is from along with their racial background is a better indicator of who will be less bothered by cold weather much more than the geographical location of a given roster of mercenaries. With every team in the league being black dominated with the possible exception of New England, there's no inherent advantage to having a cold weather home game beyond it being a home game.

What bigunreal overlooks here is that the Saints and 49ers were moving the ball at will on the other teams defenses. The last second field goals were just strategic. Taking a TD would still give your opponent a chance at a win.

I think it did in previous years because many teams in the past were clueless on how to configure proper shoes and how to keep the qb's hands warm. I recall Dan Fouts talking about the famous AFC title game against the Bungles how he got mild frost bite on his hands and he didn't have a proper grip on the ball all game. These days with the scuba gloves and specialty shoes this advantage is less of a factor.

Absolutely. Cold weather on a home field is no longer the advantage it was for Lombardi's Packers in 1967.

UGH I wanted Green Bay to win sooooooo badly!!! It sucks period when the team you're rooting for loses, but I think it sucks most of all when they lose because of a last second field goal and clock management by the other team.

At least San Diego won.

Jared Bush with a huge defensive lapse by coming inside, which enabled Kapernick to go around him and pick up the first down.

I wonder if we'll hear about that in the write-ups of this game, like how we heard ad infinitum about how Riley Cooper's drop last night was so monumental?

Or how we heard about Eric Smith failing to contain on Tebow?

The only good thing about that is one black quarterback will have to lose. Of course I won't be watching the game. I can imagine the DWFs now:

<DWF_mode>
Isn't there some way we can watch a playoff game where both of the quarterbacks are black and they both somehow advance?

One of the worst defensive lapses ever was Denver's Rahim Moore allowing Jacoby Jones to get behind him and catch a long last-second TD pass in the playoff game against Baltimore last year when the Broncos had it sewed up, yet over time the popular perception of that game has morphed into it being another of Peyton Manning's supposed "chokes" in big games.

I almost threw my beer at the tv when that happened. The officiating was terrible in that game too.

From the qb perspective, this game reminded me of a great boxing match between two white warriors. It's hard to watch one lose when they both were outstanding. They both had around 400 yards passing games and great rushing stats by the two of them too. What a game. Hold your head up Smith. Nothing to be ashamed of. You played your heart out.

To be exact Smith had 378 yards passing to Lucks 443 yards! Wow lets see some of the dwf's qbs do that!

I agree! This was one of the best Quarterback duels I've seen in a while. About midway through the 4th quarter, I kinda got upset because one of these guys was going to lose. THIS is what dual threat quarterbacks are supposed to look like!!

Went over to Weenieworld and I don't see Riley Cooper listed on the depth chart any longer. I guess they couldn't wait to "cut" him since he's no longer under contract. Hopefully the Eagles will resign him and he can have a breakout year playing with Foles from Week 1.

And I believe Moore received a ton of sympathy from everyone, including of course the DWFs. It's the white players who receive death threats and other ugly messages when their rare mistakes get magnified.
