It's not like the end of the season left my expectations incredibly high, so no, I don't think you have to worry about me jumping off of any ledges.

I will defer to people like you who know what the hell they're talking about.

I still feel bad for the guy, though.

Skins have 9 minutes to win this
Once they lose the wind, Packers will go on a run.

Basically imagine if you were kicking something that had a set of ridges on the back, when you expected it to be flat. If it's flat, it will usually go in the direction you expect it to. If there are ridges on it, they can mess with the direction of the kick. That's why you want the laces (the white part of the football, just in case you weren't aware, but I'm sure you were) to face away from the kicker. It's the job of the guy holding the football to spin the ball in the correct direction.

If you've ever seen the movie Ace Ventura, that's what the LACES OUT DAN! thing is referring to.

A Rodgers and C Matthews.

I'm sad, but it's whatever. We have a QB and some pieces here and there. Excited for next season already.

I can't help but thinking that losing to the Vikings last week was the best thing that could have happened to the Packers.

Redskins>Cardinals seems like an easier path to the NFC Championship game than Seahawks>Panthers.

You're kidding, right? Pack just got destroyed by the Cardinals a few weeks ago...

I still think I'd rather be at Arizona than at Carolina next week. We'll see, but I think the Pack have got their groove back.

I'm cautiously optimistic. The one thing that's been overlooked this whole season, while the Packers offense has struggled, is the fact that their defense is playing the best since they won the Super Bowl in 2010

NFL 2015 Part 2: There's a Flag Down

Dear God, at least we didn't lose to the Seahawks. Fucking hate that team. I'm legitimately angry at the Vikings for letting them hang around.

A repeat of last year's Super Bowl might be the first one I actively avoid.

Oh yeah. Aside from week three the Redskins were on the other end of probably the best Packers performance this year. They are on their way up for sure and should hold their heads high.

I'm not happy, but not jumping off a cliff either. Wish we had played a full 60 minutes, but it's obvious who the team with championship experience was.

That really does matter. As a Blackhawks fan, I'm used to watching a sluggish team nab the #5 seed only to stomp exciting young teams like it's nothing, despite the odds. The Packers were getting outclassed early, but they had the confidence to play their game for 60 minutes and expect good things to happen.

Sometimes a year full of challenges can pay dividends in January. They had been in trying situations and today their composure showed.

It seemed like it was going to be the Rams until a few hours ago, and now it's looking like Chargers and Raiders, which, if they're insisting on a two team stadium, is the better choice. The Rams moved over half the country away. It's dumb, to me, to have them come back. Meanwhile, we all know the Raiders NEED a new stadium, and the Chargers' own is pretty lame. And those teams still seem to have pretty active fanbases in LA, for as much as any football team can have a fanbase in LA.

In general, though, I hate this. Two teams means a home game EVERY Sunday .

It got flipped

5-1 committee vote got flipped the other way to 30-2 from all owners

Now we have Rams at old Hollywood Race track site with possible Chargers coming, too.

Raiders left out.
