Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for December 16, 2013

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

After the euphoria has begun to fade a bit from yesterday's comeback, let's take another look back to see how it all happened.

It still almost doesn't seem real that the Green Bay packers fought back from a 23-point halftime deficit to beat the Cowboys and keep their playoff dreams alive, and yet it happened. It happened, and nobody can ever take that second half away from Matt Flynn, Sam Shields, Tramon Williams, and the rest of a resilient Packers squad that would not say die.

Okay, that's enough with the rhetorical nonsense. Before we really dig in and analyze this ridiculous game, we'll give you a look at the reactions from the other members of the media and the blogosphere to get a better idea of just how everything happened yesterday.

Mike Vandermause gets some fantastic quotes from some of the Packers players after the comeback win.

Matt Flynn takes some 'personal satisfaction' in Packers' comeback win - JSOnline
Good for him. After all the crap he's been through the past year and a half, it's awesome to see him succeeding again. (Yes, I know he's made a bunch of money, so it's tough to really feel sorry for him, but I still like the guy.)

Soft-spoken Lattimore stirred up the locker room at halftime - JSOnline
Interesting that it was one of the usual, vocal locker room leaders (Jolly) and one of the quietest players (Lattimore) that sparked the team to its comeback.

I'll admit, I was one of the people questioning whether Scott Tolzien should come in for the second half. I'll happily eat some crow for that one.

There's a great bit on the goal-line play with B.J. Raji and Mike Daniels in at fullback, and how that play was only instituted in practice this week.

Many elements to Green Bay Packers' improbable comeback - ESPN
Tramon Williams on his interception(s): "The one that I didn't get credited with, I thought I caught it. The one I did get credited with, I never felt more sure about a catch in my life."

Late picks only part of Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo's whole story - ESPN
I'll only post this one link talking about how Dallas blew this game instead of how Green Bay won it.

He might get downgraded for a rough first half, but Matt Flynn deserves a Blue Chip as far as I'm concerned.
