Steelers were a 6th seed a few years back when they won as the wild card. However, Green Bay is the 1st NFC #6 seed.. good enough for me. Congratz phonedawgz,our team kicks butt. (And any other less vocal Packers fans out there.)
Like I said before, I was at week 6 in Lambeau, their only home loss. Spent 300 on tickets, 200 on hotels and food, and 100 on gas. 600 bucks and they lost that game. It was absolutely worth going through that long trip home to see them win this game.
I did not know our team could do it after the loss to Detroit and New England late in the season. Glad to see them make me look foolish for despairing. Going for the repeat next year, and we get Finley, Jolly, and Grant (Thank God) and others back from IR and suspension. Those were the guys in purple, to answer the earlier question. Watch out next year, this team will get even better.
dude im so stoked i cant talk literally i cant my voice is gone from celebrating on college ave. ( fox city guys know ). i was about 8 when they won in 97 but this is awwwwwwwwwwwwwsommmmmmmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeeee cant believe it. good job rodgers and jordy nelson looking to compete next year if thiers football, doubt it. yyyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssssss.

I think the MVP award should have gone to Nelson. That guy has talent and heart.
Not after 4 dropped passes, yeah he had a lot of yards and catches ad a TD, but if he had caught those 4 passes he would have had 13, not 9 catches. And they were ALL catchable. Even if all the dropped passes had just been caught and not for touchdowns, Rodgers stats would have been legendary. The game was on his shoulders, he did very well.. he was definitely the MVP. I like Jordy and James Jones a lot, but dang, they cannot hang onto the easy touchdown passes, just the hard ones. I dont understand it. One of them will be a big piece in trades next year.. someone who needs a receiver is going to give a late 1st or early 2nd round pick for one of them.

From Pittsburgh it is hard to lose a big game, especially a super bowl game, since Pittsburgh is a football town. Listening to the radio and comments from Pittsburghers they were okay with the lose since it went to Green Bay. Even before the game they were saying it is hard to see Green Bay in a bad light, mainly because the Green Bay is similar to Pittsburgh in that it's a working town, blue collar. Both teams were not named after any animal, but the after the kinda people who worked in the city.
