    Brady looking quite Aaron Rodgers-esque tonight.

    No, he's definitely looking Rodgers-esque.

    2-0 according to picks this weekend here so far...

    A 1996 Superbowl replay is looking oh so more likely...one more game just needs to go the right way.

    If that happens...I'll go see those two teams play in person just like last time. :)

    A rather unimpressive, uninspiring, and quite jejune victory. :sleeping:

    As indicated by my avatar exactly what I am hoping for, preferably with a different result though, even after 15 years in WI still most loyal NE teams :)

    Quite True.

    But this week is the one that I think has the greatest risk. ;)

    I see the fix is in already for the Packers. Pathetic.

    Unbelievable! Replay clearly showed that ball was out before the guy was down! It was clearly a fumble, but the crooked Referee Bill Leavy refuses to overturn it.

    It's obvious whom the NFL brass wants to win this game. All the more reason to root for the underdog Giants!

    There is a report thread on issues that sound doesn't work....since the play by play (and more accurate) is working just fine here.

    Then again....the 6 holding penalties that should have been called on the NY offensive line seemed to be invisible too...despite replay that clearly shows those.

    Forget the refs...they are failing both ways.

    The refs have been bad all playoffs, but when make an egregious error on replay, that's inexcusable. Missing a holding call during a play is one thing, but in replay, you need to get the obvious ones right.

    The NFL has to fix the officiating.

    The last two plays of the first half show just how bad the Green Bay defense really is. That was pathetic.

    I agree. As a veteran NCAA Baseball Umpire, it's understandable when my judgment might be off, like an NFL official's judgment on holding, but when REPLAY clearly shows one thing and the Referee rules in opposition to said replay, that's unforgivable--and inexcusable.

    I could soon be 0-4 this weekend on teams I wanted to win.

    You've also stated that you'd call a strike a ball if it looked like a ball to the people in the stands - and that any good umpire would. Don't see how that's much different than giving a call in football to the home team.
