If you are a Green Bay Packers fan, odds are you did not sleep well on September 24, 2012.
Why would this have been the case? Because you just watched the worst officiating blunder in the history of the NFL-the Fail Mary:
It is still difficult to find the words to express just how piss poor of a call this was, as well as accurately describe the emotions Packers fans were feeling after watching victory literally intercepted by the officials.
For a league which prides itself on precision, this was the low point of the official’s lockout. This game did serve as the impetus to resolve the labor issues but only after the NFL brand was embarrassed on a nationally televised audience.
When the Packers preseason schedule was announced in May, fans of the green and gold circled one game on their schedules: Friday, August 23. 7pm. Lambeau Field.
Very seldom-as in never before-was a preseason game being met with such excitement.
Of course, not every preseason game would feature a “rematch”...

First he was overrated, not worth a first-round pick. Then he got to camp and he was ‘too fat’. Eddie Lacy must’ve heard all that, because he came out like he had something to prove Saturday night against the Rams.
Lacy started the game after two weeks of injury-laden training camp practices which lead to hesitation that he would play at all against St. Louis. But play he...
As the Green Bay Packers Training Camp unfolds, I am going to do my best to track the players along the depth chart. While things will certainly change over the course of the preseason, this gives us an idea of how the coaches are valuing the players.
Please note that this is not a projection, but rather a snapshot ranking based on observations of training camp practices. Those players...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- As the Green Bay Packers began practice Tuesdaymorning, there was one notable missing player. There was no sign of quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
However, the Packers weren't worried about Rodgers' absence. And, after practice, coach Mike McCarthy explained why.
"Aaron was held from practice due to an illness," McCarthy said. "We'll expect...
According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Packers rookie running back Johnathan Franklin ”hasn’t fit well in the NFL” so far during the preseason.
Per beat writer Bob McGinn, Franklin “can’t get out of neutral” as his 2.56 YPC average in the preseason suggests. “He looks like his numbers,” a personnel man said. “He’s not a real impressive guy. He plays...
Eddie Lacy came in on the second snap of the game and had the look of a featured RB. He moved the pile with power, he blew threw would be tacklers, and looked like he had burst. This whole DuJuan Harris is the starter thing may have been put to rest after tonight. Lacy will be at the very least a 2-down back and will have the most value in the Packers’ backfield.
Aaron Rodgers has a Superbowl ring, an MVP, and arguably is the best Quarterback in the NFL. In spite of all his accolades and skills, Rodgers is still getting ripped by his former teammates. Just imagine how much his former High School schoolmates must hate him. Rodgers looks exactly like I thought he would.-TORodgers Videobombs the Pregame Show‘PTI’ Timeline: Aaron Rodgers
Aaron Rodgers has been sacked more than nay other QB in the NFL over the last 2 seasons and he might make it 3 in a row. Of course the Rams D line is arguably the best in the NFL, but hopefully McCarthy gets the ball out of his hands quick. See the GIF below:

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Nearly one full year later, Green Bay Packers safety M.D. Jennings is still reminded constantly about his role in the infamous conclusion of the Monday Night Football game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Call it the Fail Mary or the Inaccurate Reception or the game that finally got rid of the NFL's replacement referees, it's the moment that Jennings isn...
Neither a defender nor the sound of a whistle could stop Packers tight end Jermichael Finley.
Two passes, two nice catches on the run for Finley in practice Tuesday. After sidestepping defenders for extra yards, Finley kept right on going for the goal line each time even after coaches blew the plays dead.
By all accounts, Finley is having one of the best preseasons of his six-year...

Aaron Rodgers: ‘I Feel Bad for Johnny Manziel’
The Green Bay Packers looked like an entirely new team from the one that was shutout in a preseason opening loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The St. Louis Rams made a lot of mistakes and the Packers played consistent football en route to a 19-7 win on Saturday Night.
Here are observations from Green Bay’s second preseason game:
Observations (Real Talk)
- Eddie Lacy was a trending...
One of the many things that I love about football is how quickly things can change. A blowout can turn into a one-possession game in what seems like a blink of an eye. Status can also change…one injury and the backup Quarterback can become a Franchise Player (just watch Any Given Sunday…or better yet, last year’s Super Bowl). At the end of the day, the players are all employees…and...
