Stick A Fork In Them

They’re done.  The Green Bay Packers season is over, ended by the foot of Kris Brown as time expired in a 24-21 loss to the Houston Texans.  The loss dropped the Packers to 5-8 and three games out of the division lead with three to play.  The playoff hopes of the Packers died much earlier than expected on a frigid day on Lambeau Field.

In the loss, the Packers were shredded through the air, with Matt Schaub passing for 414 yards.  The Packers were shredded on the ground, with Steve Slaton rushing for over 100 yards.  In the end, the Packers were 5-8 and missing the playoffs.

The best case scenario for the Packers currently would be winning out to an 8-8 record, gathering some momentum that could hopefully be carried into 2009.

    Sorry Pack.  No playoffs for you.  Look on the bright side – at least the weather’s nice.  Haaaaaaaa

    It is sad to see the Pack not make the playoffs but a positive note I have to mention is Ryan Grant is just so good when he is on. WOW! I am a fan of that guy.

    At least you didn’t have to deal with Favre this year… I’ve been bashing the trade since day 1 and finally everyone else is starting to see why.

    Must be nice to know your future and to not have to worry about Favre draggin’ your organization through the mud yet again. Enjoy a productive offseason for once! We’ll be dealing with your garbage this year… Let’s hope he realizes he’s been done for years and hits the road.
