The last time the Green Bay Packers met the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs — following the 2014 season — the Packers walked away with 26-21 victory. That game will be most remembered for the Dez Bryant catch that wasn’t, however.
Bryant made a grab over Sam Shields on a 4th-and-2 that would have put the ball on the Packers’ 1-yard line with the score at 26-21. The ball squirted out as Bryant hit the ground. By rule, it wasn’t a catch because the receiver didn’t maintain complete possession through the duration of the act of the catch or make a football move.
The Packers got the ball and ran out the clock.
Cowboys fans and Bryant have been whining about it ever since. Bryant took some more time to whine about it this week.
Dez Bryant: "[Fans say] It's January blah, blah, blah, 2017, 3:29 p.m. and I just want the world to know that Dez Bryant still caught it."

Did he catch it? Not by the definition of the rule.
And you know what else?
Because it doesn’t matter.
Neither the Packers nor the Cowboys made the Super Bowl that year, as you surely know what came next.
So the question is…what comes next, this Sunday?
The Packers have the league MVP…Mike McCarthy. What could possibly go wrong?
Hello Packer fans,
I have some very annoying coworkers from New England who keep trying to tell me that the Packers championships before the Super Bowl era don’t count and that the Pats are a better franchise than the Packers. I argue for Green Bay here. Any thoughts on how I can shut them down?
That’s easy… Grab a soda, and when they are all together….Simply bring up the subject. Calmly tell them that you conferred with the NFL historian experts at TotalPackers,com. Look them straight in the eye and let them know, you were to advised to tell them to..(4 second pause) “Swallow a big fat cock”. Take a drink of your soda, burp, then immediately walk away.
Do you have a concealed carry permit? No court in the land would punish you once all the facts came out.
