It should be about the matter at hand, taking care of business, and focus. The Pats will have this for the next two weeks.
The Falcons already sound like They dont belong there. More and more players are calling it like it is. There is a small group of teams the NFL helps on a consistent basis.
After being humiliated yet again in the playoffs i can see why turd nation is furious! Maybe turd Bay will hang yet another participation banner?
Let me explain NFL holding. Pretty much the only thing that gets called is when these two things happen at the same time:.
Holding on interior lineman is rarely ever called, meaning you can pretty much tackle those guys if need be. An edge rusher might get a hold call if he blows by his guy and he gets brought to the ground.
Part of the reason why the Packers got called for less holding was because they got rid of Sitton. He led guards in holding calls in , and again in where he only started 12 games.
So much butthurt on one message thread. The fact that they won eight in a row, ended their season at , put the Vikings back in their time-worn rightful position…..
Injuries happen to all teams. The Packers had no right making it as far as they did…….. Viking trolls are trying their best to make us feel bad about that.
How could we possible feel bad about that? We could only feel like losers……if we were Viking fans. The level to which they are trying and failing to bring us, echoes how it must feel to lose year after year after year.
Their jealousy is evident in their repetitive and desperate attempts at relevancy. The refs are so tried of Rodgers throwing up his arms and glaring at them after every incompletion they are hesitant to call offensive holding.
Rodgers is such a sour puss. Grady Jarrett is mouthing off because even though his team won, he personally contributed one tackle.
He can talk big because the Falcons won , but they did not win in any manner due to him. Enjoy it now GB fans. Jan 24, 1: Packer fans are the best Forbes because of the dark years, not despite them.
What other fan base has the background and history to form such a supportive atmosphere? Ease up there, guy. No argument from me, as they were obvious.
Look at the replay. Dallas had to settle for a FG instead of it being 1st and goal at around the 1 yard line. This easily could have been a TD instead of a FG which could be considered a 4 point swing in favor of the Packers.
Did you say something about drive-killing holds? Instead of a 5 yard penalty, it turned into a 10 yard penalty. That 1st and 10 turned into a 4th and 13, and this is where Crosby kicked a 56 yard FG from the 38 yard line to take the lead.
Crosby is good, but not that good. Shall we say 3 points for GB due to a bad call? Prescott then completed a pass to Williams to the GB 15, and then the penalty was called.
Very likely at least 3 points erased for Dallas because of a bad call. And then the dagger. There were other holds not called, mostly with Gunter holding Bryant almost the entire game some of those were called, some were not , but the refs have no outcome on the game with bad calls or non-calls, right?
The Packers just squeaked by the Cowboys in a horribly officiated game, and I think virtually anybody with a set of functioning eyes would agree.
Bad calls and missed calls on both sides of the ball. Then the Packers were destroyed by the obviously superior team in Atlanta.
Life goes on, the world continues to turn. What lie did he tell? Every big play or touchdown Green Bay scored against the Giants they got away with blatant, massive holding.
I know they are spectacular, as Dallas also has Lombardi trophies — it just happens to be 5 of them. While this may be true, Dallas fans are not allowed to complain, since their line gets away with the same stuff.
And have the titles, of course. And throughout the 90s, as well, the Giants. You cannot be serious typing this. OF all the great quarterbacks that are left in this league, Rodgers is by far the most vocal about penalties.
I wish there was a stat for every incomplete pass that Rodgers throws, how many times he has his hands up in the air looking at the refs.
Last year Rodgers gets a hand brushed along side his facemask, keeping the drive alive to win -vs- the lions. This year, Rodgers not only hooks his fingers inside of a face mask, but the helmet actually comes off the defensive player after Rodgers extends his arm.
Rodgers then complains about that penalty. Stevie Wonder could have seen that headlock Lang put on Irving — simply go look at the replay.
Horrible non-calls on both sides of the ball, PI calls that were holds, and then trouble spotting the ball correctly more than once in that game.
See my above post regarding the horrible officiating in response to stellar performance an interesting name that he may want to change after the Atl game.
Dallas has arguably the best O-line in the game. Jan 24, 2: They will hit late and do anything they can to put him out of the game. Watch the play where Rodgers takes the helmet and throws it.
Rodgers was simply giving back what he was getting, but got caught for it. I was proud of Rodgers for not taking any crap from anybody.
He played his heart out, without any supporting cast. The Packers stunk it up, but Rodgers gave it everything he had.
If that were the case, we would see many more fines from Packers opponents. It would be a talking point by all the pundits on sports talk. You are full of hot air among other things no surprises there.
If anything, he gets beneficial calls. You cannot hardly sneeze on the guy with out it being a 15 yard penalty. It sounds to me like you are looking for any excuse you can to defend the prima donna.
If hes running with the ball and trying to score a td im sure this is 1 of the plays you are referring too , he ahould expect to be hit like a running back.
Look at screen names and actually read the posts. Fans of a lot of teams are sick of the preferential treatment this team gets. Why are any of you talking anyway?
Youd think youd be embarrassed by that pitiful display on Sunday. That is not just an issue with Rodgers. It is an issue with all quarterbacks. They all get targeted.
There are some QBs that are treated with a higher premium. How stupid is this, just look at NFL web site and check out the numbers your self… or if you are a Viking fan have some one read it to you.
Packers are right up their for most penalties. Jan 24, 3: By the time they reached Atlanta this team was being held together with duct tape and baling wire.
It was obvious this was not one of their best seasons, but they sure made it interesting. I am a proud Packer fan, and I feel no shame from that game.
Rodgers proved to me he remains a force to be reckoned with. Whether or not the front office gets their thumbs out of their butts remains to be seen, and knowing Rodgers as most Packer fans do………I pity any team on their schedule next year.
You know as well as I do every team in the league with the possible exception of one would take him in a heartbeat, and welcome him with open arms.
This guy will never hitting people with good analysis from behind a desk after his career is done. I am assuming he watched tape, but GB has struggled most of the season on defense, especially after their DBs were getting thin.
They did not do that on Sunday, and that why the game got away from them, the Falcons are also a great team, which also had a lot to do with it, which is why they playing in 2 weeks.
You know, as well as I do, that a majority of the responses on this thread are from angry, bitter Barney fans. Or maybe I have you pegged wrong.
The NFL knows what is going on. There only concern is ratings. Oh for sure, the Packers get all the calls.
They only can win by cheating. This has skued the fact that the Vikings are the greatest franchise since the dawn of time and always will be.
Again, in case you didnt hear it from another one of our fans, the Vikings rule, the Packers drool. Sure, almost all the threads I post on about this have nothing directly related to our team, but it is so important.
I just wanted everyone to know that—not that I have any insecurity or envy complex. Packers were penalized times this season for yards, Atlanta times for yards.
Comprehension is lacking from Packers fans. All the methane fumes from the cheese factory must be the culprit. I look at it logically. NOT like most of the comments on here.
I see fans doing it with the Patriots, Steelers and Seahawks. Once a team starts to struggle, those comments go away. When you cheer against a team that you hate so much, you actually start to believe there is a flag against them on every play.
I use to think that to…… when I was These are the same fans that expect something for nothing. There are a lot of comments here saying Rodgers has all day to throw the ball so there MUST be holding.
Rodgers was sacked 35 times during the regular season. He is pretty mobile and scrambles a lot. Maybe, just maybe, that has something to do with it.
There are too many teams to list that are studying the legal means by which the Packer O-line protects Rodgers.
James Campen is a very good coach and he is being copied. One loser Falcon buys into the idiocy and it is validation for the viking fan base to continue this ridiculous diatribe.
Jan 25, The packers have lead the league in 3rd down penalties against their opponents for the last 2 seasons. Teams that play the packers get a letter from the league saying there were mistakes made during the game.
Sorry that it helped the packers. But people that pay attention to the games know that the league takes care of the packers.
Stupid packer fans come back with penalty totals. What about when the penalties are called? That is the important part. They also received the most 3rd penalties that year and again this year.
That line gets away with more than other lines do. No holding calls in the Dallas game. None in the Falcons game. It is pathetic but what is worse with this help the packers record in the last 11 home playoff games is And they were given two game by the Vikings.
And another palyoff game the refs took away a win from Dallas when Dez caught the ball. Someone needs to explained to you the meaning of the phrase packer fan.
And then look for the refs to bail them out with a flag. He must think everyone holds then…At least that is his excuse for having 4 sacks over 36 games.
Yeah, we get away with a lot of holding. The crybabies who think the refs favor the Packers clearly did not watch the 12 games they won this year. Or the 11 games they won last year.
Or the 13 games they won the year before that. Or the Super Bowl they won in Or the 15 games they won in Maybe the refs make so few calls against the Packers because the Packers are a more disciplined team.
You must be logged in to leave a comment. Rodgers stopped laughing with the Refs after the 4th drive. Falcons talk alot of trash for a team with an easy schedule.
I would never fault officials for favoring the Packers. As a Bears fan I have been seeing it for years. What a weak minded whiner. GB will be the next Cleveland Browns if the Refs start calling a fair game….
Glad somebody finally said it. No, they struggle stopping teams on third down. There are penalties on every play in a game if you want to comb it with a fine tooth brush.
Spoiler Alert, Grady… Every team is holding almost every play. All teams hold, they are taught how to cheat. D backs are trying to grab jerseys and hold.
It is to keep Aaron Rodgers upright, of course. By the way, carl Gerbschmidt, are you packed for HeadedToHouston?
Guys like this remind you of what bad teams and fanbases sound like, cough, Minnesota, cough. Maybe ill be rooting for the pats again after listening to this garbage.
The games are fixed. Pretty much the only thing that gets called is when these two things happen at the same time: Dallas is out, and so is GB.
