Game tied, 21-all, after 95-yard Packer drive

Green Bay just finished off a 95-yard drive against the Panthers' defense, which has to be embarrassed about allowing the Packers to go the length of the field like that. The TD came on a five-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers to Donald Lee, and that made it 21-19.

With 5:17 to go in the third quarter, the Packers decided to go for two points and tie the game at 21. That worked like a charm, too, as Rodgers threw a pass to a wide-open Greg Jennings, and just like that, the Panthers' 11-point halftime lead had evaporated.

The drive was keyed when Donald Driver, 1-on-1 against newly rich Carolina CB Chris Gamble, burned him for a 46-yard reception. That got Green Bay out of a hole on its own 5.

On the same play as the tD....Doesn't Fox see it.......Same play over and over.

Memo to the refs, that was either an interception, or an incomplete pass. If the rule on the previous near interception was that he had to maintain possession after impact with the ground, how is that not also the case with the Green Bay receiver? It was obvious the ball was out because why else would the second Green Bay player have jumped in to try to get the ball back.

The Panthers D is playing so badly (not at all) that I just switched channels to watch Indianapolis and the BROWNS!

Oh, of course, this is all Jake's fault...

Somebody please slug the first idiot that hops on this forum bashing Jake. Then buy them a copy of "football for dummies".

Nope, not Jake's fault the ssecondary reeks today!

How do you define a Panther addict... I stayed with the Colts v. Browns for about 2 minutes and went back to the torture. :-)

How appropriate is it that Jerry Richardson had to get a pacemaker?

Can we get a good kickoff for a change?
