Green Bay blows the NFC Championship at home


So, like a good fan I was following the game.  I was sending instant messages to another fan (whose responses have been blanked  for privacy).  This is an interesting account of the fourth quarter and overtime.

Start of the fourth quarter:

Rob Sanders says:
lets just not call any stupid screens
Rob Sanders says:
WHY DO THEY KEEP doing screens!!!!!!
Rob Sanders says:
I wish they’d try something else

Rob Sanders says:
they’ve tried a screen about four times and executed them successfully zero times
Rob Sanders says:
false start, 2 – 15

Rob Sanders says:
it doesn’t look good
Rob Sanders says:
ARRRRGGHHH

Rob Sanders says:
all they had to do was FALL ON THE BALL
Rob Sanders says:
punt returner fumbled the ball
Rob Sanders says:
NY fumbled
Rob Sanders says:
2 packers had a chance to recover and missed
Rob Sanders says:
#@$#%^%#^$
Rob Sanders says:
the crowd has to really come up with some distractions
Rob Sanders says:
or a block
Rob Sanders says:
not a chance
Rob Sanders says:
woo hoo overtime
Rob Sanders says:
the kick was way off

Rob Sanders says:
by a country mile
Rob Sanders says:
now we have to get the toss
Rob Sanders says:
we got the toss
Rob Sanders says:
GB is going to receive
Rob Sanders says:
2nd overtime NFC Championship in NFL history

Rob Sanders says:
a FG will do it
Rob Sanders says:
Favre Interception
Rob Sanders says:
why the <expletive> not?
Rob Sanders says:
live by the Favre, die by the Favre
Rob Sanders says:
looks like we’re back to a Giants FG attempt
Rob Sanders says:
about the same place as the previous miss
Rob Sanders says:
oh, a 47 yrd attempt
Rob Sanders says:
he got it
Rob Sanders says:
Giants win it, 23-20
Rob Sanders says:
and then the Patriots win the Superbowl
Rob Sanders says:
great season, see you in September
Rob Sanders says:
some *seriously* questionable refereeing

Rob Sanders says:
Eli Manning had a very good game
Rob Sanders says:
Green Bay just played like <expletive> and McCarthy’s offensive calls were stupid
Rob Sanders says:
why they blew three possessions with stupid screens is anyone’s guess
Rob Sanders says:
anyhow.. sorry, I’m seeeeeeething right now

Rob Sanders says:
bet not many people picked Green Bay to be in the NFC championship

Rob Sanders says:
Giants had plenty of momentum coming into the game
Rob Sanders says:
I have to go eat now

Thus end Green Bay’s remarkable run at the Superbowl. 

We’d all like to know what Donald Driver and Favre were thinking on the second play of overtime.  Favre either scores with a big play on his first pass in possession (in overtime) or he kills you. 

Throwing in the direction of a cornerback who just came off the bench and was nice and rested…. Live by the Favre, die by the Favre.
