Yeah that 12 men on the field call was clear as day, I don't how they blew that one. Hell I could see that from California. :-b

How is a game with that many turnovers and penalties and questionable penalties a good, much less "GREAT" game? It was slop on slop with some extra slop. It was horrible. It takes more than a close game for it to be "great".

It was a great game because it was close, because it was a come from behind upset, because so much of what happened was unexpected, and of course, because the Pack is no longer undefeated.

Chalk this one up to THE BEARS.


Wrong!

If they had a time out left don't you think they would have used it during that last drive of throwing it right down the middle. The time out was taken from when them when they challenged the spot of the ball and the refs change the spot but took their time out too even though they were right.

Pack got screwed. 12 man on the field call was blown. McCarthy won the challenge...and his timeout was taken away? WTF???!?!?!? How the heck are they going to explain that?

On another note, McCarthy's play calling was too conservative.

No it doesn't. GB got screwed there. They should have had another TO. And another TO would have made it alot easier to score there on that last drive.

Chalk this decision up to the refs.


Yeah, because an extra timeout guarantees another 7 points...... :-S

Don't know if this has been mentioned before [probably has] but the most important parts of this game were the turnovers. Take away the Pack's turnovers and the Bears would have had a hard time winning this game.

Bears players stepped up and looked like they were playing much harder than they have in any other game this season.

Oh how sweet to beat the 4-0 Packers in Lambeau. ;-D
Go Bears!
