    I hope so too, but even with this very good game by Ponder, I don't think he has done enough to secure the job for next year. I don't feel like he led the team to a win today. I admit that I have been wondering out loud what the score would have been if we had an elite QB on the field.

    He can prove me wrong still. I would like nothing more than to see Ponder put in brilliant performances next week and in the playoffs.

    Walsh, is money...damn that kid can kick.

    The defense seems to be more dynamic with Griffen on the field. Certainly helped to get Cook back. The DLine played great. Harrison Smith can just flat out play ball. I actually think i saw AJ Jefferson make a couple of plays...

    Ponder looked real good in the first half. AD was bottled up by a very good defense. Jarius Wright looks like a developing playmaker.

    Great Team win!
    Don't apologize for giving credit t the coaching staff. This is the third straight game that I think they have put together a great game plan.

    I agree it was one of the more complete ROAD games they've played in awhile, and against one of the top teams in the league no less. I was even waiting for our typical prevent defense meltdown that usually makes these type of games end up being closer than they should, but it never came. We even got to see Yates come in and give us his best Sage Rosenfels impersonation xD.

    We shall now refer to you as EricThePrognosticator xD.

    Yeah that was hard to see. I don't want to see him fall short and we have to look back these wasted opportunities and ask what if. I understand the injury risk too, but having a realistic shot at one of the games more important records doesn't come around very often.

    Yeah he came up with a fumble recovery haha.

    All that's standing between us and the playoffs is GB. We shoulda won the first game, and IMHO we are playing our best football right now.

    To many game balls to hand out for me...Great team effort. Walsh, great to see the rookie having such a great year, Rookie of the Year???? I say so, not to mention he only set an NFL Record and hasn't missed a 50 plus yarder yet....
    I'de just like to mention, LOADHOLT!!!!!!! No flags today, thats sweet..Also, I watched him closely when Watt's lined up against him, Load dominated him!!!!!!!! Not taking away from Watts great talent and what he's done this year for his team, but he got owned by Load!!!!!! Watt's only had some nice plays when he lined up against our guards, and yes, the Texans Coaches moved Watt's away from Load. Watt's was to quick and powerfull for our guards, but couldn't handle Loadholt.... For me that was really nice to see....overall, great game by all our team and now to kick some GB ass....


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Why do I get the feeling I am being set up for a huge letdown?
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    Barring a total meltdown by the Seahawks tonight, the Packers clinch the #2 seed and a first round bye if they beat us next week, so we'll be getting their A game. When you think about it, we've been playing playoff games the past 3 weeks so I think it's going to be a good game with a lot to play for next week.

    A loss will be disappointing and fit right in with the history of this franchise, but a win and we'll be on a roll heading into the playoffs.
