Am I the only one that feels like Matt Ryan is a complete product of the system. Dudes been average his entire career. Every throw he makes is wide open. Plus he's had elite weapons his entire career.

We'll see how good he is next year with Shanahan gone.

I think this is snap reaction sour grapes. He has made some great passes today. He has thrown some balls that should be picked, but he did it when they were already up 17-0. He has been pretty fantastic. He has Julio Jones, but Jordy Nelson has been an elite receiver for a long time as well. Give the guy his due, especially this season.

Right? If I was a coach, I'd keep it going too. If you don't like it, stop us. Now, if it was like 45-10 in the middle of the 4th quarter or something I'd bring in backups and everything but our job is to score, yours is to stop us.

We lost a middle school basketball game by almost 50 points playing 8 minute quarters. I didn't want the other team to take it easy on us when it was so obvious that they were going to win. Losing by 20 because a team let up doesn't feel any better than losing by 40.

This is probably Lang's last game with the Packers. Sad to see him have to walk off the field hurt.

You think McCarthy knows this is 4 down territory?

This is becoming historically bad. On track to be the second worst blowout in a NFC championship game. The record is -41.

Could be the end of TJ's career as a Packer.

I think that this is precisely what the Packers needed to be able to cut ties with Dom Capers. I think the offense has been awful, but I think that an exit via embarrassing defensive play is what has been needed to get him out of there.

I wonder what it feels like to know you're going to the Super Bowl in the 2nd quarter of the NFC Championship game. That has to be a good feeling as a player and as a fan.

How many guys have been knocked out of this game today? I stopped watching but keep seeing injury updates on my phone.

Just because we suck at putting teams away, can't fault another team for doing it to us. I wish frankly we did but instead we end up in a life or death match in the fourth quarter of every game because we consistently take our pedal off the gas.

Maybe a little sour grapes there but I don't think you can ever compare Jordy to Julio. Not the same class.

One thing I take away from this game is Rodgers & Jordy have some heart,wish I could say that about even 1 guy on our defense.
