Yeah right. We would have ruined Rodgers career. Guy is probably counting his blessings every day that we didn't draft him.

It's like coming out of college and getting recruited by Goldman Sachs vs Del Taco.


who knows. maybe rodgers has the mental ability to deal with all the adversity and actually may have saved mike nolan's career?





....which is why i said "could have" and not "would have"

I don't know if Montana could save Nolans career but who knows. People under estimate how terrible our coaching, game preparation, and over all organization has been the last 8 years. Forget about Alex or Aaron etc...rabbit holes deeper than that. But I mean yeah...who knows.

It's 19 degrees, there. A 49 yard FG is like kicking a 60+ yard FG in regular conditions. To put it in perspective, the longest FG ever made at Candlestick is like 53 yards. And we don't even get into sub freezing temperatures, here.

Yes, it is. They say it all the time on the radio when I listen at the games. Usually when a team is punting when everybody is expecting a FG attempt.
Chicago looks unprepared for this game.

you don't need to remind me about the coaching. but alex's tentativeness also played a role. rodgers has that "f*ck it" attitude that may have made the difference.

but this is a topic that's been discussed up/down/left/right/and backwards, let's just agree to disagree.
