Sadly, I also remember 4th & 26.



That 4th and 26 is why I will always hate Brett farve

No one ever talks about the fact that the interception he threw in that game at the end is one of the worst interceptions I have ever seen in my life--especially considering the circumstances. And that is no hyperbole.

Actually, I take that back: That IS the worst playoff interception I have ever seen. Brian Dawkins caught that like a punt! LOL.

Here, 4:00ish:

Basically threw it up in the air for grabs because he didn't want to get hit instead of taking the sack

I forgot about that! Yeah, that was Brett for you. As a Packer fan, I can recall how so many times he'd drive the ball the length of the field in a close game only to try to force the ball in & throw a pick 6 on the 2 yard line. Or he'd see that the team is behind & take it entirely in his hands & do like he did here & just launch it in the middle of the field.

Thing is, on the next series he'd often throw a 60 yard perfect pass to Antonio Freeman, so we were easy to forgive.

I think a big reason Rodgers takes so many sacks is because he stood on the sideline all those years & watched the team consequences from Favre's interceptions.

You are right on with that last comment. I think it is 10 regular season games at Lambeau he hasn't thrown an INT! If that is the case should be slim pickings for the Eagles "D"!

They were saying now that the stat came out about Rodgers not throwing a INT at Lambeau since December of 2012 means he will throw one this sunday because he is long overdue lol

As long as he doesn;t throw 2 or more and more TD passes to balance it out

I think it only ends if the eagles get a td from their special teams and defense along with 3 scores from the offense

I see no way the Packers lose unless the above happens

Agree. I think Rodgers and the Pack take care of business today.
