What game were you watching? The Packers final drive stalled at 4th and 8 (yards!), not 4th and inches. And, since they were behind by 8 points at the time, a touchdown would not have given them the lead.

I said earlier when they went for a 2-point conversion that they'd probably regret it. And they did.

Rodgers seemed to have an open field to run it in on 3rd-and-goal. Instead he passed to Adams who was under heavy coverage.

Green Bay had so many chances and didn't take advantage. The Bucs deserved to win.

This is true, but LaFleur will be questioned big time for not going for the touchdown. Every metric says in that game situation you go for the touchdown.

I have no disputes with anything you wrote, but it has nothing to do with my statement, which was that it was NOT 4th and inches for a go-ahead touchdown.

Pardon my confusion. So a yard is 3 feet and a foot is 12 inches and an inch is three grains of barley placed end to end .and they use a chain (which should be 22 yards if we are being sticklers for correct terminology of units of length) to measure inches?

Packers still blew it. Easier to have a final drive for a FG than a TD.

How do you 'blow it' if you never had the lead?

how do you think "blow it" only refers to leads? What school did you go to?

🚩 Can I get a review here please?

Glad GB lost. Heard they are whining about the officiating. Payback for all of the horrible calls that they got their way against the Lions over the years!!!!

Back to the original question "Is it weird to be a Brady fan now"? Since we live in Florida about 2 hours from Tampa...we have become fans of Tom Brady since he came to the Bucs, and how he has helped the Tampa Bucs. Also kinda get a kick comparing the season of his old team VS his new team. Maybe he's a spoiled and pampered player....but it looks like he is good also. He has lifted up Tampa for sure.

Well, looks like Superbowl LV is going to be Brady vs Mahomes.

The GOAT (to date) vs the GOAT 2020 and up.

You have to wonder if anyone can stop KC.

Based on how KC was playing tonight, I doubt it. Mahomes makes it look so effortless.

I went skiing today. First new snow in a while! It was a good day.

Reading the game recap and this thread, Tom did it again. Not the best QB in today’s game by the numbers, but the QB for the best team. Maybe all of the wins are due to his effect on the other people on the field.
