    Same here. Can't really blame the guy, though. You get two hands within half a foot of the ball, you have a good shot of getting the block. There's just no way to know the exact angle the kick is going to go (not responding to you so much as some others).

    The missed block on Dawson's FG doesn't matter, the Packers were offsides and a flag was thrown.

    I didn't realize this till much later last night. Still would have made for some EXCITING football in the moment.

    How would the offsides flag have affected the 0:02 left on the clock as of the snap? Do they reset the game clock?

    I don't know if it's reset to 0:02 or the play is untimed, but it doesn't matter -- a game can't end on a defensive penalty

    If he would've blocked the kick, that would've forced Phil Dawson to have to rekick in another pressure packed situation. Phil is a pretty good kicker and at that distance the accuracy rate is probably like 99%, but I doubt he would want to have to kick again right after his first kick got blocked in a season deciding situation.

    Halfway there with you Wade. Cards beating SF - hope so. That said a Seahawks-Niners rematch would be fun.

    Go 'Hawks!!!

    I think the Saints are done unless Brees performs a miracle.

    my bro said bad coaching on the saints management and i have to agree. if they would have let brees play that 4th down instead of failing the field goal, things would be different i think. just look at the passes just now resulting in a TD

    Why in the hell did he not just get out of bounds. That was such a crappy way to end that.
