Default Packers vs Cowboys Showdown....And the winner is.....??

There seems to be a lot of thought that the Cowboys are going to win this game without a doubt. Vegas even has the spread at 7 in favor of "America's Team". Maybe it's just me, but I think more respect is due to Favre and the Pack, sitting at 10-1 as well. Anyone else agree with me here??

Bret hasn't won in Dallas ever. Don't see it happening this time around.

Yeah. I would like to see Green Bay win because it is everyone's duty (besides coachJ's) to be a Brett Favre fan and to hate the Dallas Cowboys, but I don't think the Packers' defensive secondary will be able to contain the Dallas passing attack. And while I hope he plays well, I could see Favre trying to force the football and likely making a couple of mistakes tonight.

Hopefully I'm surprised.

Actually the real winner is the NFL Network.

Ho-hum: Another double-digit loss for the Packers at The Hole-In-The-Roof - their ninth straight.

And make it 10 seven weeks from now.

The worst happened. Green Bay lost (which I expected, anyway),
but worst, Dallas had to go an put Brett out of the game.


Thanks, Dallas. Favre was having an absolute storybook year,
and Dallas just had to go and take the strategy "knock Brett
out of the game."

The Packer o-line sucked; Dallas was all over Favre. On defense, the Pack got no pass rush on Romo; so they effectively lost the battle on both lines. I have no idea what Favre was thinking trying to throw 70-yard plays every down; they didn't get to 10-1 doing that. They were trying trick plays, flea flickers, onside kicks ... just not playing Packer football. It's as if GB felt they needed trickery to beat Dallas. I wish they would have stuck to their game plan, and when Rodgers came in, he ironically got them back to the screens and slants that are their trademark.

I was most disappointed by the GB defense. Clearly, they were hurt by the loss of Woodson and KGB. But seeing Dallas get easy, easy touchdowns was utterly frustrating. Despite all this horrible play, it was still pretty close and GB fought back. I think they have a legit shot if they have a rematch and are at closer to full strength.

Oh, and that 40-yard pass interference call against GB was complete rubbish. You simply cannot give them 40 yards and first-and-goal because the players' feet got tangled. THAT rule has to be changed.

More than likely, dave, Marc means always placing the ball at the spot of the infraction when pass interference is called, instead of giving them the option of making it a 15-yard penalty - or, as I support doing, capping the penalty at half the distance to the goal, as they do with just about any other penalty.

You are not implying that Dallas intentionally took him out are you? I did not see the game but saw the hit on SportsCenter and it looked like a completely legit and clean hit to me. I don't think he got flagged on it did he? What is he supposed to simply pull up because it is Brett Favre? Hits like that are part of the game and part of playing the position.

Marc, are you saying that PI needs to be reduced to 15 yards or that PI should not be called when guys get their feet tangled? I saw the play on the highlights and thought it looked pretty bogus myself simply because PI is not supposed to be called when there is incidental contact. The only way PI is warranted in that instance is if the referee thought the defender was intentionally trying to trip the guy up.

The hit on #4 was more from the act of throwing coupled with the hit. Clean & legal & nowhere near questionable IMO...

On the PI call, in real time it seemed a bad call but on the replay, if the CB had continued to go for the ball instead of turning his head back to the receiver at the end, odds are no call...

Favre showed why I think he's been a great QB but not near 'The Greatest' with those unforced, "Why in the world did he throw that ball???" decisions that have plagued him thru-out his career...

The Pack are a sum of all their parts & the loss of Woodson & KGB pretty much assured them a poor day against Romo & Co. If they were available, I believe this game would have been much different. Besides their talent level, those 2 bring & keep up the emotion/passion for the GB D. Just can't downplay their absence IMO...

Say what you may about NFL Network but they guaranteed my loyalty when they started with all the cheerleader coverage. Ahhh, just like the good old days...:thumbup:

The Super Bowl is already set. Dallas vs. New England.
Lock it up.

New England has got their throats on every opponent they
face...and 16-0 and a trip to the Super Bowl is theirs for
the taking.

In the NFC, nobody is stopping Dallas (unfortunately).
Like I keep saying (and nobody seems to be listening to me),
Green Bay CANNOT win in Dallas. They can't...it's just a
psychological fact of life.

The only other POSSIBILITY is somebody upsetting Dallas at
home in the divisional playoffs. Do you see Romo bobbling
another hold against Seattle THIS year???
