The Green Bay Packers figuratively snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in a humiliating 23-20 sudden death overtime loss to the New York Giants.
What happened to the kick butt team that blitzed the Seattle Seahawks just eight days earlier? Why this meltdown?
Packer fans will ask these and other questions because, quite simply, the team did not play credibly. Sure, there was no guarantee that Green Bay would win, but to be humiliated at Lambeau Field by a team that made its share of game blunders is not inspiring.
The Packers squandered the opportunities they had and, to make matters worse, opened up new ones for the Giants who eventually took advantaged of an intercepted pass.
The Packers, of course, deserve credit for a good season which unfortunately will be overshadowed by the meltdown that sent the Giants to the Super Bowl.
My suspicion is that Brett Favre will be back next season. I can't think of a player with his talent who would want his last NFL game to be the lackluster performance he turned in tonight.
