FanPost

2004 @ Philly

The OT interception at Philly wasn't the biggest "stomach punch" by Brett Fave in Green Bay.  The game however, is the biggest stomach punch of my life as a Packer fan.  Everything seemed to be going our way. (Nate Poole vs. Minnesota, Favre vs. Oakland). We were a miracle fourth down conversation from a date with the Carolina Panthers in the NFC Championship game.

There were three plays that could have changed that game.  Nick Barnett being in the right coverage on Fourth and 26. (I saw a story about how Barnett should have been deeper on the play, essentially taking away McNabb's lane to Freddie Mitchell). Mike McKenzie knocks down the ball rather than going for the interception on Philly's game-tying touchdown. And of course last but not least, Favre's throwing that dreadful interception.

I have no doubt we would have won the NFC Championship.  And our chances against the Patriots would have been much better than three years later in 2007.  Our defensive line could not have handled Brady they way the Giants did.  Manning and Burress torched us, what would Brady and Moss have done?

Even though having lost to the Eagles gave way to the (in my mind) greatest Super Bowl in my lifetime, it still stings far worse than the loss to NYG.
