Which is why I said yestrerday to just lock all the JC threads......there is nothing new being brought to the discussion; just some more people coming in late.

rather have wind at back to end the game than start it, which is what happens when we defer to the 2nd 1/2..granted a FG didn't matter at end, but its the correct strategy at Soldier field.

and of course if we took the ball first and it came down to a LOng Fg and robbie missed it just short, the same hindsight would be killing lovie for not putting wind as back in 4th quarter

Shredded?... what was his passer rating??? 0 TD's and 2 int's?... our 3rd string at least FOUND the Endzone. pack won yeah. but you take away that pick 6 by Raji, and it's a tie game dude.

True, but if you noticed in the season, there were many times where they didnt kick it into gear until the 2nd half. Many games it looked like we were going to lose the game based on our 1st half performance, only to see them make some adjustments at the half and come out with the win, playing as a better team in the 2nd half.

So, the D just dropped the ball in the first half, played like crap.

Not that I feel like talking about this anymore; but I thought it was good info to have. A friend of mine said NFL network rewatched the whole game to find when Cutler got injured, and said it was when he fumbled the ball. Said you could see that his whole body was on the ground except for his knee and leg. So with some research they were able to isolate when hit happened. If Fox had bothered to do the same a lot of issues that came up would have never happened.

Exactly. I gave up on most threads trying to justify my opinions at the time because everything i wanted to say was already said by Wolfman or Benji or others...NUMEROUS times, the only thing that changed were the people coming in to display their rage on those of us who already admitted we were wrong and got over it already.

you ALWAYS want the ball at half.
if your down early it gives your the opportunity to take some chances/put points up before the half knowing you get ball back.
if your up, it gives you the opportunity to put your foot on their throat or take them out of the game completely.

I Agree w/Phil/Benji. Don't let THAT O get a chance to get momentum. Let Rodgers cool off from the warmups, and have a little pressure on him if we score first. Also don't let their D have any chance of being able to pin their ears back b/c their O gives them the lead.

It takes a big person to apologize and It's frankly good to see. I respect the opinions of many posters on this board, even when I don't agree with them. That's why it's fun to visit and participate.

Losing to the Packers in the NFC Championship game is a tough pill to swallow; however, I am glad that we finally faced the Packers with so much on the line. Over the past 40 years, are teams have been good and sometimes great, but never at the same time. I look forward to the 2011 battles with the Packers.
