I could look forward to a Giants - 49ers game. That could be a good matchup. San Fran was fun to watch yesterday.

About time Eli gets the respect he deserves. He’s as good as any this time of year.

No Brees or Rodgers in the NFC title game. Not many folks would have predicted that.

Mmmmm. Is it possible for an entire team to throw a game?

Not unless you're considering a football version of "Eight Men Out … "

This is not the 15-1 Packer team we saw this season.

It's definitely not the outstanding Packer offense we saw this season, but it sure is the same pathetic Packer defense.

Too late for the refs to decide the game for the head office, but they keep trying.

And now Aaron Rodgers is hurrying his passes.

He can't believe it, either.

Now it’s three possesions by the Packers for a comeback....ain’t gonna happen.

Too bad there's no resigning; these last five minutes are just a waste of everyone's time.

An all east coast - west coast SB has been sealed. I might just skip the big game this year. Far as I am concerned my season and it’s interest is finished.

He's definitely coming out of Peyton's shadow. The media has to cover him semi-objectively.

Here's another one for Coughlin.....have stunts like Rogers just pulled reviewed. He deserves an Oscar nomination for that performance.

You can get away with the explosive offense/no defense combo in regular season against mediocre-to-good teams, but you stand no chance in the playoffs.

As much as I love football, all SBs are hyped to the point of nausea for the last several years. IMHO.

Ok. Hard offside kick into a player or a a big bounce kick? Which one?

If Eli wins another then Peyton will be in his shadow. What’s Peyton’s defining moment? The year they won the superbowl he was wretched the entire postseason. Bob Sanders won the trophy for him.

I would have kicked off here and not onside kicked, especially still with 3 time outs.

You have to give Aaron Rodgers credit, though … at least he's put up a touchdown to make the score at least appear respectable.

30-20, New York Football Giants, with 4:46 left to play.

The Packers tried an onside kick a second time, but the Giants recovered for a second time.

Now they have 1 timeout and the 2 minute warning. And the Giants just converted again. GB would have to catch lighting twice to come back.

Hard offside recovered by the Giants … driven for a couple of back breaking first downs.

I thought it was dumb doing the onside kick so soon, they kickoff, get a 3 and out, they would be in much better shape.
