- CRITTER TALK
Packers and Steelers, however you slice and dice it, are two cold weather teams going to Dallas for the big game. The temperature will not be cold, but it should still be a good game.
This will be the fifth time for the Packers. Rodgers looked good, Cutler looked anything but. from NFL.com:
Aaron Rodgers ran for a touchdown and made a saving tackle on Brian Urlacher’s interception return, B.J. Raji returned an interception for a score and Sam Shields picked off two passes to lead the Green Bay Packers to a 21-14 victory over the Chicago Bears in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game.
The victory sends the Packers to the Super Bowl in Arlington, Texas, to meet the Pittsburgh Steelers, who beat the New York Jets 24-19 in the AFC Championship Game.
Raji’s TD return in the final quarter put the Packers ahead 21-7. Green Bay then withstood a rally led by Chicago third-string quarterback Caleb Hanie. He led two fourth-quarter TD drives, but the Bears’ last chance to tie the score ended in the final minute when Shields came up with his second interception in Packers’ territory.
Bears starting quarterback Jay Cutler hurt his knee and played only one series in the third quarter. He was replaced by Todd Collins, who was pulled after starting 0-of-4 passing.
Da Bears D limited the Pack to seven points in the second half, but that was all they needed in the second half. Say good night Urlacher, get your assistant to call in for that tee time the week of the Superbowl ok?
The days second game, Jets and Steelers gave me hope that it would be a little more interesting. My sister in San Diego was rooting for the Jets, and since I despise her yuppie ass, I went for the Steel curtain gang. I texted her 5 minutes into the game: Bet you aren’t liking the outcome so far-when, in spite of having that long-assed catch called back, the Steelers scored anyway.
Gee, that dumb blonde never responded to my text, but I digress. The Jets scored all of 3 points in the first half. I was afraid a nap was in my immediate future by halftime. I did everything I could to stay awake. Got up, got online, texted my sister a few times, tauting her with nasty messages about how Mark Sanchez was going to get torn into small pieces by the Steelers linebackers…and just as I was falling asleep somewhere in the middle of the fourth quarter, she called me screaming at me to f*ck off and that the Jets were coming back and I could kiss her behind the next time I came down to San Diego. So I did get to see the end of the game.
Well, the Jets did try to come back..but they didn’t succeed. Sanchez had a great second half. If he had a good first half they would of won. As my husband always says.. if my aunt had balls..she would of been my uncle. I know..I don’t get it either..but it seems apropos.Click here for reuse options!
