Arizona-GBay

If you aren’t watching the Cardinals-Packers, you are missing one of the greatest playoff football games in history.  The Packers have just tied the game at 45-45 (yes 45-45), after being, at one point, down 21 points.

2 minutes left for Kurt Warner (who has as of writing this 5, yes 5 touchdown passes).

Update I: Cardinals kicker Neil Rackers (former Bengal) missed a chip-shot 34 yard field goal with 14 seconds left to ice the game.  Going to OT and Green Bay won the toss. Look out.

Update II: The game ends (unbelievably) on a defensive fumble recovery for a TD.  The Cardinals plays the Saints next week in New Orleans.  It is going to be rockin’.  And the ball is going to be flyin’.  Hats off to 2nd year QB Aaron Rogers though who brought his team back on his shoulders, throwing for over 400 yards and 4 TDs (while running for another).

The game had the most points in NFL playoff history.

  1. “one of the greatest playoff football games in history.”? What? Two teams with no defense can never play great games. All they can do is run up and down the field, hoping that there won’t be time for the other team to score at the end. I was pulling for Arizona but I don’t see how they’ll beat anyone next week.

    Frankly, this weekend had 4 of the more boring games in playoff history.

    Now, if we only had even MORE instant replay…

    • I don’t know. True the defenses did stink it up, but I grew up watching AFC fun n’ gun ball (Warren Moon, Boomer), so I appreciate the utter mastery that both Rogers and Warner showed. And Rogers being only a second year QB showing that kind of guts was impressive to watch. Some great receivers making some crazy insane catches (on both sides) in that game.

    • if you want to gloat have at it. The J-E-T-S deserve it. Schottenheimer the Younger called a great game. Be an interesting game against the Chargers. The team I would not want to play is the Ravens. I think the Colts are very beatable and the Ravens have shown they can win on the road in the playoffs (this year and last year).

      As to the Bengals, we need some receivers. Losing Chris Henry (RIP) really hurt the offense, as they had no deep threat. Even still, props to Cedric Benson who played like a man possessed and tried to will the Bengals to victory on his back alone. The missed field goals and Chad Johnson (he has to change his name back after Revis owned him) dropping (an admittedly tough) catch in the corner of the end zone.

      • i’m a steelers fan what do i have to gloat about this year. but i just wonder about the bengie’s fubaring in the playoffs again. I don’t think the ET’S are that good and i would expect them to get spanked by the chargers. the only chance they have is that Norv ” giant bag of fail” Turner is the chargers coach.

        • The truth that dare not speak its name (or that Bengals fans don’t want to admit to themselves) is that Palmer has never been the same since Kimo von O. blew out his knee in that (prior to yesterday) last Bengal playoff game. Might be mental, might be physical, some combo…who knows, but he’s never been the same since.

          He has moments where he looks like his old self (against the Chargers this year for example), but they are few and far between. He runs hot and cold and the 2nd half of this year, he was pretty cold.

          I expect the Chargers to win against the Jets, but who knows. Revis should able to take out the best Charger WR. The guy the Jets will have a hard time stopping is Gates. But if their defense can keep them in it, if they can run the ball (keeping the Charger Offense off the field), they could have a shot late. The Chargers have been known to choke in the clutch. Still I would think the Chargers will be in the AFC championship game.

  2. Suck it, Green Bay.

    I was moving all weekend but caught the end of this game over dinner. My favorite thing about the Cardinals is their ability to make football even more interesting than usual (at least in the last couple years).
