I could have gone with a poll asking who was the most valuable player on the Green Bay Packers to have been injured and not returned during the game (TE Jermichael Finley, DE Ryan Pickett, LB Clay Matthews and TE Donald Lee would have been my choices), but I'm keeping it positive and handing out a game ball instead. Matthews is still nominated for what he did before he injured his hamstring in the middle of the second half.

One thing I'm upset about (besides the injuries) was the bad decision by Mike McCarthy to call a QB sneak on 3rd and goal, and then go for it on 4th down instead of kicking a FG. I hate walking away from points (and any decision that leads to QB Aaron Rodgers getting hit) and he did them both. It could have turned this loss into a win.
