And to top it off, Favre might be hurt. I'm very close to changing the channel.

From bad to worse. Favre forcing the ball down field behind zero pass protection and now hurt.

There is no pass rush at all from the Packers, and Jared Bush and Nick Collins appear to have no idea what they are doing.

Now a long completion to Owens from the four after it looked like Harris had him covered.

So far a total blowout.

Can we get a god damn roughing the passer call? Jesus christ.

I mean, call at least one of the forty. Give us some percentage of the calls.

This game is over. The refs appear to be on top of their game with America's Team, and the Packers look like complete garbage.

I really don't care if we're only down 17. Rogers doesn't know what he's doing, Favre is hurt, and when he's in there, throwing deep constantly. The defense doesn't know where they are.

This isn't the Packers team we've seen on this 6 game winning streak. They made the stupid mistake early on of switching up what's been working, and now they've dug themselves a hole that their defense can't get them out of.

EDIT: And I approve of terminating Jarrett Bush's contract before the game is even over.

I'm turning the game off for now. I think Rogers will put one in the end zone before the half is over, and we'll go into the second half down by 10. Then we'll go from there.

Keep me updated, I'm not straying too far.

Jennings scored. No call facemask of course.

I still think this game is over. Until they have a double digit lead with less than 2 minutes left, I won't believe they've won. The Cowboys offense is just killing the Packers defense.

They're going to have to go back to how they've played the last few weeks. You absolutely do not change what's been working. You can't do it. That is a stupid move and that mistake has killed them.

Cowboys run the second half kick back to the 45. Move it down to the 32 where the Pack hold on 4 and 2.

Rogers get another chance to shine.

I am thinking maybe Packers should have pulled Favre earlier. Seems like they have the Romo type mojo happening now with the new quarterback in there. Going to be a close game.

Touchdown Ryan Grant.

27-24 Dallas.

I take back what I said about Rogers. I was wrong. Premature angered judgment.

Still, the defense needs a stop here. That would be so huge. A Dallas TD here would probably kill this momentum.

Rogers with one run for a first down on a scramble and several completions to get to nine in a row. Grant for a TD from the one foot line on 1st and goal.

27-24 Cowboys.

Is Harris going to guard anybody? Or are we just going to let the Dallas receivers run by and catch the ball instead?

I'd prefer the game plan of actually covering them. Seems that would work a little better.

EDIT: These referees are incompetent. Making calls they can't see, forgetting the line of scrimmage. Wow.

INTERCEPTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOOO!!!

This has been such a roller coaster game. I called it earlier: very stressful. I've got a headache.

As good as Owens is, he will drop the ball. That time instead of just dropping it in the end zone, he juggled it right to Harris. LOL.

Time to move it down the field. Keep it up Rogers!

Great drive there. Good to see they made Dallas pay for the turnover.

I'm done commenting until it's over. I'm getting sick of this emotional roller coaster.

I just tuned back in to see Dallas put another one in the end zone.

Would of been nice to come up with a big stop on the third and goal.

Pretty iffy interference call on that drive.

Watching Rogers work the short game, I can't figure out what the plan was at the start.

I'm flabbergasted with that one. This could be a completely different ball game if they decide to focus on moving the chains as opposed to throwing deep into double coverage.

Nice kick for Crosby there, kind of surprised they didn't go for it though. Even before that, I thought Grant picked up the first down. I think we got shafted on the spot there.

...Beginning to wonder. There is a trend here of calls not going our way. I'm not one to buy into that bickering match over borderline calls.. but you would think at one point one would go our way.

Even the announcers are beginning to ask questions about some of the calls.

Nows the time, D. Kampman has been getting close. Now he needs to close the deal.

No breaks on calls tonight, that's for sure. I hate to use that as an excuse.

As do I. That face mask just killed us.

I said I'd wait but I can't.

Yeah, I hate to use officiating as an excuse, but when it's obvious, I could care less. Penalty yards are 142 to 65.

Add on to that the bad spot on Grant's run last drive, the ball Harris took from Owens early in the game, the no roughing the passer calls.

Eventually it becomes very obvious what's going on.

I'm not impressed with the Cowboys. The Packers got away from their game plan, had a ton of injuries, more than double the penalty yards, and have been on the other end of a lot of bad no calls, yet they're only up by 7.

Good to see a marketing nickname gets you the benefit of officiating. Maybe the Packers should look in to that.
