Bears 27 @ Packers 20

jeremy.jpg
Jeremy
It seems to me there was a Wisconsin sports team in recent history that got off to an over-hyped fast start, I'll have to do a bit of legwork to find out who that was and how that played out. Stay tuned.

Remember when people thought the Packers were going to be at the bottom of the division? And these people get paid to make these predictions? Shame on them! I'm liking this season, but sometimes the games get a little bit intense. I can't say I'm scared of Griese as an individual, but you never know when it comes to the Bears. Favre usually has some good games against them.

Jon
I want to pick Chicago but I don't think their offense is good enough to put any points on the board. I don't think Green Bay's offense is great either, especially in light of them facing Chicago, but there are too many injuries to the Bears' defense to assume they can still dominate.

Cowboys 25 @ Bills 24

Jeremy
Gush all you want about Brett Favre, it's hard to watch Tony Romo on the Cowboys and not be a little envious.

The Cowboys are also 4-0, same as the Pack. Still don't like the Cowboys, but I kind of like Romo, what's wrong with me?

I imagine it would be hard for a Vikings fan to watch the Cowboys and not be envious. Along those same lines, I set lineups for 5 fantasy teams last night and didn't realize until just now that the Vikings have a bye this week!

I'm not sure if the Cowboys have an infinite amount of betterness , but they probably have a team of higher quality overall. And, the Packers play the Cowboys this year, so we really won't need to debate.

edit: Also, according to the power rankings on ESPN, Foxsports, and CBSsportsline, the Cowboys are only 1 better than the Packers, which obviously isn't that much of a difference.

To be fair, I think the Packers-Viking game was one of those game discussed earlier where the final score really doesn't reflect how close the game actually was. Of course, because I'm talking about the Packers I'm sure I'll be accused of being homerish, but the game was not as close as the 7-point margin indicated. That said, I don't completely disagree with jthompto's first part of the comment that the Cowboys are better.

You're right, that 7 point margin should have been closed by the fumble return TD the refs took off the board.

(Also, in all seriousness, the Packers allowed the Vikings big play after big play, so I don't know why you feel they were beaten more "handily" then 7 points)

Well the game I watched never really got out of hand, the bad fumble call would have tied the game, and even with that the Vikings still ad a chance to tie at the end.

I also think the cowboys are better at this point due to the fact that they have a solid running game, unlike Green Bay. But hey, they play on Nov 29 so I guess we will see then.

How well do you really know Jeremy? Even if the Pack blow out the Cowboys by 56 points there will still be the talk about "Hey, remember that one play where the ref called it wrong? That was the turning point, and you can negate about 49 of those points... therefor they are not better, the Cowboys just got shafted"

If not Jeremy, then someone....

Well to be fair the play I'm talking about cost the Vikings 7 points in a 7 point game (not to mention the Packers scored 7 of their own on the drive that should have never been.)

Though I still don't think 1 win over another team makes the other team the 'better one' automatically, even with a 56 point margin.

Oh that, yeah. Well, if I remember correctly, the whistle blew immediately, so there was absolutely no way that the call (right or wrong, in this case, the right call emoticon) could even have been reviewed. Also, I think it was the 4th qtr. I'm sure there are lots of calls that that the refs made up that would have given the game to the Vikings. The only one that I could see being argued as an obvious call was the pass interference on the last offensive play for the Vikings. Whatever though, I stand by my thoughts. I never once felt that the Vikings were putting up much of a fight. If they would have given Peterson the ball more than 12 times maybe things would have different. I never would have thought that a former Wisconsin Badgers offensive coordinater would not know what to do with a good running back.

Oh, it wasn't reviewable? I stand corrected, it had to be the right call then, I'll withdraw my charge that they screwed up.

So when the Vikings were down one score, had the ball to go get those points they needed after the Packers turned the ball over while in "all we have to do is not turn the ball over" mode, and on the ensuing drive the receiver was absolutely hogtied and violated leading to the game icing int bouncing off him on the 30 or so yard line you thought to yourself, "Well we got away with one there, but we were so dominant today that the Vikings were never in the game, so I don't feel we got away with one?" I wish I knew what life looked like through those 'Opportunity meets Preparation' glasses. emoticonemoticon

You do realize the only time the Vikings trailed by even 2 scores was for like 3 minutes after the questionable call, yes? A bulk of the day the Packers weren't even a TD worth ahead.

In other words, what other teams' fans do you think get done watching a game where they had to survive both the onside kick and a worst-case-scenario turnover while in "the ONLY thing we can't do is turn it over here" mode. Only then to cling to their one score lead and then think to themselves, "Man, we really kicked some ass today! I wasn't nervous for a second. Why did that other team even bother to show up?"

We all know there are close games score-wise that shouldn't have been, but I don't think you can make a rational argument this qualified. Those are the games where a team is up 35-7 and put in their 2nd string D to play prevent for the entirety of the forth quarter allowing a couple meaningless scores.

ok, literally, the refs do not know how to count. These guys even have HD replay screens!!! I'm sure this won't have much of an effect on the outcome of the game, but how do you not see that 12 guys were on the field when the ball was snapped?

The Packers easily could have been up about 35-3 that first half. I hope the Bears go through one of their 4th qtr meltdowns that have become regular this year.

How do the refs have time to count 12 men in real time when they can't count 12 men in slow-motion? Also, how often do you see the 12 men on the field penalty in the NFL, and we've had it twice in this game, once for each team. Crazy.

Ok, I'll summarize so this still makes sense for posterity sake. GB challenged the spot of the ball on a close first down. The ball was moved back but the Bears got the first down by 3 atoms of pig skin. Why did GB lose the time out? They moved the ball.....and now Al Michaels is talking about this as I type.

I guess it was the right ruling since GB had to challenge first down or not and not the spot of the ball that just implied if it was a first down or not. Either way that's a stupid rule. Just a terrible last drive by the Packers. Clearly they had gone to the Denny Green school of time management.

Edit: Collinsworth agrees apparently.

Those refs should be fired. They're probably the same refs who called the Packer-49er wild card game of '99. We got way too conservative, and by not kicking to Hester we still gave them excellent field position and in return gave ourselves terrible field position when we got the field back.

The whole challenge system is moronic in the first place. If all the college games can have automatic replay on every play, you'd think the 14-16 games per week in the NFL could handle it too.

For the record, I'd call the first Jones "fumble" an incomplete pass, he was bobbling it still when it was knocked out. The lining up over center penalty was complete BS. I'm still wondering how that wasn't 12 men on the field, and probably always will be. I had to listen to the first part of the 3rd quarter while driving home, but as far as I can tell the Packers play caller from the 1st half was fired for doing way too good of a job. Favre was very naughty on that pass to Urlacher. Going back to play calling again, they should've taken a shot at the end zone at the end of the first half. And I'm assuming the reason they didn't run some down and outs and slants to the sideline at the end of the game is because they either don' t have any of those in the playbook or um...I can't think of any other reason why you wouldn't run those routes. And finally, they were who we thought they were and we let them off the hook. Wait, one more thing, Driver should never have less than 5 catches.

Just for fun I'll add that the Packers had twice as many penalties as the Bears. Maybe they were all valid (besides the one on the field goal) but I wouldn't know because there were about three series in a row that the Packers started with killer holding penalties but they never showed the replay on TV. That always makes me suspicious.

Edit: And I would've spotted the ball at the 42.5 not the 42. I'll admit that's probably more affected by my bias than some of these other things, but I still think you could reasonably make the argument that when he his knee hit the ball was at the 42.5. Of course that's assuming that you noticed that his left knee actually lands before his right, but I'm fairly certain that the guy who can't count to 12 didn't notice.

Both of Jones' fumbles were fumbles and that FG penalty was accurate by rule, but as Al and John discussed, the intent in this case and the rule didn't jive. "A Team B player who is within 1 yard of the line of scrimmage at the snap must have his helmet outside the snapper’s shoulder pad." Clearly his helmet, even after he slid over at the last possible second, wasn't clear of the long snapper's shoulder.

I would gripe about that obscure penalty on the field goal in the first half. The penalty was illegal formation on the defense. The explanation from the announcers was that the defensive lineman cannot line up square to the center to prevent a player from teeing up a defenseless center the instant he moves the ball. First of all, I don't think I've ever seen that called in any game I have ever watched. I'm not saying the rule is dumb, but I've never seen it. That said, the replay of the lineup showed that the d-lineman was not lined up square to the center. The rule apparently says that the helmet must be outside the centers shoulder pads, and the replay showed that it was. That gave the bears a first down and 2 plays later they scored a touchdown (which if the game played out exactly the same without the td, the Packers would have been down only 3 on that last drive. Obviously things would have changed throughout the game though.)

Another weird call came in the first half and really did nothing to affect to the outcome because the Bears punted later in the drive anyway. Al Harris was called for a facemask penalty about 3 seconds after the player was tackled. It's not that the ref just called it late, it's that Harris' hand brushed against the facemask well after the player was already down.

On one play that resulted in a 9 yard gain, Driver was called for a pass intereference when the replay showed that he was standing by himself while Favre still had the ball in his hand. Illegal contact maybe (I didn't see any other replay except the one that showed Driver alone without the ball yet in there air), but Pass intereference requires the ball be in the air, which it definitely wasn't.

Overall, it seemed like the officials were wanting to be somewhere other than the game.

All that being said, though, the Packers shot themselves in the foot too many times. Like I've said, a good team would have found a way to overcome some of the bad luck the Packers were getting. The refs had nothing to do with the 3 fumbles. The refs had nothing to do with the fact that the Packers started playing like they were up by 30 in the 2nd half. The Packers have looked pretty good all season, but they definitely have a long way to go.

We deserved an L. The Pack played OK, but there were definite times where we earned it (how about two stripped balls, same two parties both times? two interceptions?)

Also don't you almost have to think that somehow, and don't ask me how, the 12 men on the field thing was the correct ruling. Remember that they did originally call it, then the booth said "Eh, were not so sure" and the ref reviewed and agreed. I have to imagine counting is one of the things they can handle.

I would put my money on the fact that the Bears got off on another by-the-rule, but stupid, technicality. Like if any part of you is off the field you count as off the field, or something.

Edit: Also keep in mind that the penalty on the field goal had a chance to help you. You're always playing with fire as a coach when you opt to take points off the board.

I agree completely with your last comment about the field goal helping. Which is why I'm not THAT upset about the whole thing. The Packers could have stopped them from scoring any points because of it. But that doesn't change the weirdness and probably incorrectness of the call.

Maybe when you become head coach you can have your special teams always get this penalty on purpose then since it's so helpful.

That is rare and that's my point for busting in chops. Giving the Bears a first down on the 13 increased the Bears chance of getting 7 points from 0% to probably like 60%, leaving about a 35% chance to reget the FG, and a 5% chance of turning it over. So it wasn't really equal chances. Maybe if it had been like a 55 yard field goal I'd be more apt to agree.

Secondly, had the Cowboys scored the 2 point conversion they wouldn't have kicked the onside kick and there would have been like a 97% chance the game would have gone to overtime, where the Bills had a decent shot at winning, or at least a better shot then the 0% chance of winning after the Cowboys final field goal sailed through.

At best the Bills had a 50% chance to win in overtime. I'm having difficulty finding actual stats, but lets say the Bills had an 80% chance to recover they onside kick + a 10% chance to not get the kick but still win on a missed/never attempted field goal. So there's 2 possible results to the 2 point conversion, once of which leaves the Bills with a 50% chance to win and one of which gives them a conservative 90% chance to win. The fact that they didn't win doesn't change the fact that the 2 point conversion failure was clearly the better outcome for the Bills. The 0% after the field goal doesn't matter, since the result of all plays after the 2 point conversion (result, not choice of play) were completely independant from the 2 point conversion itself, and 90% is greater than 50%.

Of course they could've won had the game gone to overtime, but if we're going to ignore a 40% difference in statistical odds then you might as well say maybe the Bills would have been better off going for 2 on their last touchdown and failing, so that they were only up by 7 and then the Cowboys would've just kicked the extra point and then the Bills could've won in overtime.

Most of what you do here is slightly weird.


I won't argue with that, even coming from the guy who has a Vanilla Ice quote as his tagline. "Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it."

I think you're severely over thinking a fairly simple observation. Obviously any team in that situation should not let the team score, but the end result being what it was they would have been better off in overtime.

Mike Holmgren used to be known for letting people score on purpose to get the ball back and avoid the clock. I think it's a smart call in certain situations.

PS Overthinking on Nutcan - you can't be serious. Heh.

Not converting a last minute drive with a bad pass on fourth down cost us the Super Bowl.

I don't think that last score cost the Packers the super bowl. Because they would have kicked a chip shot field goal had the packers stopped them 3 straight times from the 1. I always forget though, that the Packers actually got down to about the 30 yard line on the ensuing drive.

That is the truth. The Pack got down to the thirty and on 4th down Travis Jervey dropped a catchable ball that would have given us a first down inside the 20. Stupid Jervey.

It wasn't Travis Jervey, it was Mark Chmura. And I'm pretty sure it wasn't a dropped pass. Favre was rushed and had to make a quicker than desired throw and Chmura had to dive for it.

Your right but I know Jervey dropped a pass somewhere in that final four plays. John Mobley broke up the Chmura pass on fourth down.

I know I remember the Broncos scored 21 points when John Elway pulled off the worlds first 1080°

My memory isn't what it used to be, but I think the entire world was destroyed.

A Packer fan talking about the Viking's Superbowl losses? I never thought I'd live to see the day.

Edit: I also like how a comment commenting on how overhyped that play was, followed up by a Futurama quote, tripped the Packer fans', "Are they insulting the Packers? I can't tell. Better play it safe and point out they have no Superbowl wins." default reaction to everything ever said by a Viking fan.
