Packers’ Final Play: Drawn Up in the Dirt

Okay, maybe not literally, but pretty much. Like when you were a kid on the playground and you’d draw up routes for each receiver to run in the dirt prior to the play, that’s kind of what Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers did on his team’s final offensive play against the Dallas Cowboys, Sunday night.

Randall Cobb said Rodgers just told the receivers what to do, rather than calling an actual play.

As you’ve probably seen about 50 times by now — and if you haven’t, just turn on NFL Network — Rodgers hit tight end Jared Cook for 36 yards to the Dallas’ 32 to set up Mason Crosby’s game-winning field goal.

That is some legendary stuff right there.

Cowboys should have never let the Packers wear their home greens!

    Wow. Rodgers is fun to watch right now

    So that tells us that Fat Mike elected to let Rodgers run what he wanted. Probably a good thing considering the Cowboys were moving the ball against the defense and scored 18 points just in the 4th quarter. Overtime might not have ended well.

    Look at those guns!!!!!

    Shouldn’t be long before killer queen accuses him of taking PED’s. lol
    Killer will be buying Rodgers high school year books to compare his body from when he was a teenager like he did with Mathews….lmfao. How sad must his life be huh?…holy shit.

    I hope all the queen fans, players, and coaches enjoyed watching a winning franchise and the GOAT yesterday.

    That could be the queens in like 10,20,30 years or so.

    MM told Rodgers to ‘Run it! And let’s get the hell out of here!’

    Awesome game, unbelievable play, and then Crosby put the exclamation point on it by making a 102 yard field goal, well only a 51 yard field goal, but he made it twice.

    Hey did anyone know that there might be some “salty” language in an NFL locker room? Wow, I bet that Captain Obvious never saw that coming either.

    I said somewhere after te 7th game this season I was watching the game mondays afternoon stead evenings and stayed relaxed whatever.
    I had to be somewhere this afternoon so I watched this morning. I couldn’t stay relaxed. I couldn’t get relaxed for several hours
    after. I didn’t dare to measure my bloodpressure, wich I should.
    Please, please , please stop doing that 4th quarter opponent come backs.
    I thought shit we didn’t hold them below 30 but then there was that epic play. Guess I can measure now before I go to sleep.

    I could never quite understand why Rodgers is suddenly better. I wondered if Rodgers simply stopped trying to sandbag McCarthy, that he have been trying to sandbag McCarthy for quite some time.

    According to Matt Hasselbeck, this theory isn’t far off:

      I thought the real reason for Rodgers resurgence was that he broke up with Olivia.

      This stuff is very confusing.
