Wow, I felt like CRAP after the first couple minutes. I got better.

I can't see Grant fumbling it for the rest of the postseason, so I'm feeling pretty good about our chances next week, no matter which team we end up meeting. Of course, I HAVE to think that (and say stuff like "our" and "we") - I'm part owner of the team!

Everyone take it easy on DrewDewce ;-)

That was really nice of the Packers to give the Seahawks a 14-point headstart before handing them their ass.

Nothing much else to say. That was a pretty straightforward butt-kicking; almost Patriots-like. Hell, you could see Seattle had completely given up in the 4th quarter and would have forfeited had the option presented itself.

Needless to say, if you're a Packers fan, you'll be rooting for the Giants tomorrow.

I don't really think it matters though. The way Favre & Co. played today, the Patriots are the only thing out there that can stop them.

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

Do they have another game like this in them though?

Hey, no hard feelings on my end. An obviously more talented team overcame a few early hiccups and asserted their dominance of a clearly outmatched foe. Hopefully we'll (there's that "we" again) make a run at Faneca in free agency to correct that horrible Hutchison gaffe of two years ago for the Offensive Line and maybe we can find a Tight End who can catch and/or hold on to the ball as well as stay healthy for something close to an entire season. Might help to get a Defensive Lineman or two who can help out with that AWFUL 3rd down defense we have as well. Will also be interesting to see if Holmgren actually comes back or if we go with Mora or someone else (could it be time for the Zorn era pt deux??).

I obviously, wish these questions were coming a few weeks later, but again, good luck against the Dallas/NY winner next week (and this time my heart is in it). I'm rooting for a JAX/Pack SuperBowl now . . . which unfortunately should scare all you Pack fans to no end given my rooting luck.

I know the NFC title game would be at Texas Stadium, where there's kryptonite under the field that vexes Brett Farve, but even at this point in his career I would take him over Romo in a game of this magnitude. Nothing against the Cowboys' quarterback, but I think Green Bay would get the rematch victory here.

What big games has Brett Favre won since losing as 11-point favorites in Super Bowl XXXII? I'm always baffled by this "I'll take Favre in the big game" logic.

I said I'll take Farve over Romo, of which you can say the exact same thing...except he hasn't played in two Super Bowls. Of course, he's also only been a starter for part of last season and then this one, so it's an unfair criticism. But the point stands that if it's Farve vs. the Game then it's also Romo vs. the Game, and I think Farve has the better chance in that one.

I'm not as convinced as I should be about this blowout, since it was a foregone conclusion that GB would whip the terrible-on-the-road Seahawks. The first few minutes did give me the cold sweats, however. I think it'll still be a brawl in Dallas next week but I'm heartened by the fact that everyone will be back for this match with Dallas, and Atari Bigby is coming off the game of his life. He was the major weak spot last time around in Big D, so if the weak link is suddenly doing well, Romo is in for a long day.

You've got to love playoff football at Lambeau in near-blizzard conditions. I would laugh my ass off if Eli "Eww, Bad Weather!" Manning has to play in something like this next week.

You wanna know why someone would take one of the top ten QB's of all time in a big game? Really? Even in this case when the other guy is in his second year starting?

I didn't ask why - I asked what big games Favre has won in the past decade.

When I think "Favre in the playoffs," I think "home loss to the Falcons in the first round in 2002," or "six interceptions in the second round against the Rams in 2001." If there's some big game Favre has had in a clutch moment against a quality opponent in the last ten years, please point it out to me.

It's a good thing for Favre that he won a Super Bowl relatively early in his career, otherwise he'd have spent his career answering the same "why can't he win the big one" questions that plagued Peyton Manning for years and basically serves as an asterisk on Dan Marino's career.

Yeah, I am with DrewDewce. I was pretty stoked 5 minutes in and then it all just went from there. The ground game has been bad this year and this was the game where it was needed. Plus, it is hard for me to hate on Favre. I am hoping for a GB/NE Superbowl rematch, just for the Pack to take it to them again!

The first five minutes took off about 3 years from my lifetime, and caused me to loudly curse in front of a baby younger than one month old. The remaining 55 minutes filled me with incredible joy.

At 3:52 PM last night, MrsSec19Row53 and I briefly, jokingly discussed leaving Lambeau to catch the 5:45 tip off of our oldest son's basketball tournament game. We decided against it. I'm sporting my Ron Dayne #27 Giants jersey right now :-)

It was surreal sitting in the stands last night. It wasn't "snow globe" snow, it was "New Year's Eve confetti" snow. We had a tough time seeing the other side of the stadium. How was it on TV?

This quote from Favre in the post game encourages me that maybe the gunslinger has grown up:

"Getting down, 14-0, oh boy, this ain't too good," Favre said. "I'll have to admit, I wasn't very optimistic. The history with me is to try to get it back all at once. I didn't want to make a bad situation worse. But a lot of those guys in the locker room are confident."

Psst - Add "Lambeau" to the dictionary.

Speaking as someone who hasn't upgraded to HD yet, it looked pretty awesome on tv (I'm sure it was even better for those of you with HD). The only thing that "suffered" was the over the field camera since it got water streaks on it from the snow quite a bit and it couldn't be cleared by hand (as much or at all??). Always fun to watch snow games, especially if you don't have to sit in it for 3+ hours (and watch your team destroyed) ;-)
