    THE INTERCEPTION BY BURNETT

    Watched this several times and I'm not seeing what others do

    MB makes a nice pick and slides; it appears 56...Peppers kind of hand motions him to go to ground as he's sliding and jogs to the sideline while he goes down

    But there is a player coming up and inscreen...I think a OL....only a few yds away for the tackle

    He doesn't have nothing but green ahead. It doesn't appear he's going far

    I can't fault him on this

    I think what bothered me the most is that the mentality of the team went the way of that kneel down. At that point, I think too many Packers thought the game was over.

    I can. He should be able to out manuver a linemen.

    If there was a minute left in the game, absolutely slide.

    Otherwise go for the dagger.

    I think there were others behind the lineman too
    I'd have run.....but he made a great play there and I can't criticize here

    There wasn't a reason to go down early. But taking a slide instead of a hit was understandable.
    When I was in a slump, I comfort myself by saying if I believe in dinosaurs, then somewhere, they must be believing in me. And if they believe in me, then I can believe in me. Then I bust out.

    Had they just recovered the EASY onside, it was over.

    Not necessarily. There was the 2 minute warning and a TO. Packers go three and out and Seattle gets the ball back with 1:20 and no TO's. Based on the 5 minute Packer D, that was enough time to score at least three TDs.

    Hard to say what would have happened. The 2 guys from Seattle I saw between him and the endzone appeared to be linemen. Presumably Russell Wilson would have tried to run him down.

    The Burnett fetal position was annoying only because it was so symbolic of the attitude of the whole team in the last 8 minutes.

    I agree: "I think what bothered me the most is that the mentality of the team went the way of that kneel down. At that point, I think too many Packers thought the game was over."

    Not quite. They were still going to need to run two plays before the 2:00 warning (Seattle uses its last TO after the first play). And then, assuming they run a safe play, Seattle has the ball at its own 20 with 1:10 or so left. So if Bostick either comes down with the ball or just does his job and blocks, the game still hadn't been won.

    The Packers gelled as a team in the second half of the season because they were able to do what they needed to win, especially when it came to closing out games. The 2nd half today, starting with the fake FG where Slocum only dropped one guy back into coverage, and continuing with Quarless's drop, Burnett's early dive, and Bostick pulling a Bill Bucker, and maybe ARod missing an open Cobb, was the total unraveling of that ability to close games. I felt like I was watching Derrick Turnbow out there on the mound in the last four-five minutes.

    I don't either...let the $20M franchise QB move the ball down the field.

    There was just over 2:00 so I'm pretty sure they only need to run one play to the 2:00 warning. They go run - 2:00 warning, run 1:20, run 0:40, punt deep into Seattle territory with almost no time left. with a timeout there's 30 seconds to go the length of the field into the endzone. That's assuming they gain no yardage on any of those plays.

    If they PASS the ball, there's a really good possibility of much more time left on the clock AND the possibility of Seattle getting the ball in packer territory.

    After lunch the players lounged about the hotel patio watching the surf fling white plumes high against the darkening sky. Clouds were piling up in the west… Vince Lombardi frowned.

    When are you going to get it through your skull that the game WAS NEVER OVER or WON by the Packers at any point? You keep saying this and that would've won the game...and you are always incorrect.

    The game wasn't over...which is why you don't go into prevent defense or "milk the clock" mode and go away from the game plan that put you in position to have a chance to win.

    Collins with the pick of Luck.

    Up a billion points, still tries to run it back.

    I miss a lot of your good posts since I put you on my ignore list. Well, lets not go crazy with that "a lot" business.
