    Since HDTV is crying and making excuses. Percy Harvin was clearly faced masked and his head turned at 3:14 in the 2nd quarter on the kickoff after the 14-14 score when tackled. No mention of it by the announcers. Oh but it didnt matter brett lit the Pack up on the drive for a TD anyway! Oh wait, thats the interference call HDTV doesnt like. Guess what HD? There was an offsides as well on that play so it DOESNT MATTER!!!! The offsides would have negated the interception anyway.

    Did you watch the game?

    Not the same analogy at all. If I were to say a RB had 20 caries for 120 yards and 2 TDs, then most would say, "WOW, nice game, he dominated with 6 yards per carry." But, then I tell them one of his TDs was a 90 yard run on 4th & 1 when he broke out. So, he had 19 other caries for 30 yards. Stats can be misleading!

    hdtvfan...I was not arguing his seasonal stats vs. Favre or any QB. It was all about when & how (see above) he got his yards. I was saying that he racked up yards because he had to throw the ball since they were down 2 TDs. Minnesota went to a less pressure defense (besides the DL) to try & not give up big plays. When they brought heat, they got burned by Nelson. You kept saying how great his stats were last night...I showed you how misleading the stats were, but you can't accept it.

    Rogers isn't bad, but Favre's not bad either. Neither is a Manning, Ryan, or Flacco. ;):lol: (QBs on teams I like)

    there was defensive offsides on #55 of GB that play that was declined!!!!!!!! no interception either way. GET OVER IT!!!!!! and it was in the 2nd quarter. There was no interception in the endzone in the 1st quarter. Did you even watch it? GB got whipped.

    Actually - the offsides on that play was on the Viking Defense...

    The other "invisible" penalty was called on the Packers for interference. The replay clearly showed no such thing happened, and both of the announcers were quick to state it was a horrible call, and would otherwise have had a major impact to the momentum of the game against the Vikings (not to mention chalk up a Favre interception, take 7 points off the scoreboard seconds later, and give the ball to the Packers on their 20 yeard line instead. Yup...a game changer - they don't always have to happen at the end of a game either.

    I actually watched the game, but until you mentioned that, I forgot about the offsides call. So it wouldn't have made much of a difference had they not called interference, maybe a yard or so in where they spotted the ball.

    Play back the recording of the announcers in the game if you can - there were 2 flags thrown, whereby play was stopped afterwards, and "offsetting penalties" forced it back to a 1st and goal on the one.

    Each team was called for a different penality (the Packers invisible interference was theirs), and since it was the larger of the two called, that one was enforced.

    Going back to the real topic here....yes, Brett had a good game, but even he surely knows he dodged a bullet to win this one. I haven't seen him that antsy and full of worry in the 4Q of a game on the sidelines since Superbowl XXXI (in person).

    That's now what is on they announced in the booth on THAT play.

    There was an offsides called on Green Bay on the next play.

    In any case....now that we've had some fun on the Tuesdya Morning Quarterbacking...

    Bottom line - Brett won.

    Doesn't make him the better QB last night, but indeed he won.

    I was curious and just went back and looked at it. There were 2 fouls on GB on that play, interference and offsides on 55. If you have it recorded, its at the 1.5 hr mark.
