What a dumb play.
Aaron Rodgers drops back, Julius Peppers hits the ball just as Rodgers arm is moving forward to throw.
Ball falls to the ground.
Just a guy watching the game in a bar, I thought it was an incomplete pass.
But even in the littlest of little league football, coaches will tell you that THE PLAY ISN'T OVER TIL THE WHISTLE BLOWS!
So there's the ball on the ground, it gets picked up by Jarrett Boykin who then stands around with it for about an hour while all the Bears walk back to their huddle, FINALLY Boykin hears either Rodgers or his bench yelling for him to RUN! and it's all over.
You can't give Aaron Rodgers 7 points in a playoff game and expect to win.
But I have to say this about the Bears of 2013: at the start of the season, I did not expect them to even be close to a playoff berth.
I did not expect that the last game of the regular season, the Bears vs the Packers, would decide who would be the NFC North champs.
All year long this team was so up and down it was unbelievable - that they were able to pick themselves up after the revolting Eagles loss is actually very impressive.
And it was a really exciting game to watch.
Just a shame that on 4th and 8 the D would allow Randall Cobb to be, and I'm being conservative here, about a million yards wide open.
Seriously, if you dropped a giant net down on Cobb, you wouldn't have caught a Bear.
He was waving for the ball as soon as he saw Chris Conti decide to run up next to the linebackers and look around for a snowball or whatever he was doing.
Awful end, great game, surprising season.
Do you care if they re-sign Cutler?
Because it's gonna be some cash.
I think they do because there are too many other holes to fill.
And for all you kids who don't know what "In A Gadda Da Vida" is, well... it was a song by Iron Butterfly they actually played on the radio quite often back in the day. And it had a drum solo in the middle that was so long and annoying that it actually killed the opportunity for any future drummer to have their own drum solo.
Go to about 6:24 of this video and listen to drums until your ears turn to stone.
