On the biggest stage the D was not all that great tonight. I'm a little let down. I'm sure there are plenty of arguments that it was the O and the turnovers that lost it, but the D was FAR from stellar tonight, on a night when they were needed more than any other game.

Rodgers threw for over 300 yards (304) with three TDs. The Packers O had 4 drives over 50 yards - 2 of them 70 or over.

Turnovers or not - that's not good. In fact it's bad. And it could have been worse had the GB recievers not dropped a ton of passes.

I love this team, I'm proud of the season and to wear the black and gold, but the D came up short tonight - very short.

Dude,

The D has come off poorly against passing offences all season long.
Our D just doesn't measure up to a good QB. We haven't had a good passing D in a decade.

That's just LeBeau's D. They stop the run and give up the pass. Good passing Os don't bother with the run and cream us with the pass.

We weren't all that good on either side of the ball tonight. Nor on special teams. And yet, we still had a chance to win the game at the end.

The D didn't create pressure... but you can't blame them for this loss...

this was on the O..
