Packers win!

The game ball for today's game gets split between three entities.

First, James Thrash gets the game ball for the illegal motion penalty which called back the touchdown. Without that penalty, the Packers would have lost the game. Brett Favre went downhill so much between the first and second halves that there was no way they could have eaten up enough field to set up Longwell for the field goal.

Second, Al Harris gets the game ball for the interception on the very next play after the penalty. Without that interception, the Redskins probably would have gotten the touchdown (again) and won the game. Those couple of minutes were very emotional in my house, let me assure you.

Third, the referees get the game ball and an honorary spot on the Packers' MVP list. Even I think the penalty against Thrash was bogus, but frankly, things had gone against the Packers so much that they were due. Even their first score, that field goal, came after they basically got a gift from the refs for a penalty.

Good game, though. Good game. (And no, I'm not going to mention "the prediction.")


  • Good, because the mask prediction cuts the other way.
