Packers 21, Bears 14: My Top 10 Observer-ations

Categories: Super Bowl XLV

10. Awesome. In this microwaved society of information, I learned Bears' third-string quarterback Caleb Hanie -- thanks, Twitter -- was a former Forney Jackrabbit before Fox TV viewers.

9. Personally, I don't find Pam Oliver attractive. But when it's like 15 degrees outside and she's wearing a blue, knit doily on the back of her noggin' she looks even more ridiculous.

8. Kudos to Packers' punter Tim Masthay, who ball-gagged Devin Hester and tilted field position all day. Five of his eight punts were downed inside Chicago's 20 and one went for 65 yards.

7. The Cheeseheads aren't even in town yet and I'm already sick of them.

6. It sucks how we compare every fat football player to William "Refrigerator" Perry. And speaking of B.J. Raji and his fourth-quarter interception return, I'm not 100 percent convinced he didn't have the ball punched out by Hanie before he crossed the goal line. Forget the Fridge, Raji should study Leon Lett.

5. As good as Aaron Rodgers was at quarterback, one of his biggest plays of the game was his open-field tackle of Brian Urlacher after the third-quarter interception. Shame on Urlacher, right?

4. Hanie's story was almost the stuff of legends. Imagine his Super Bowl hometown celebrity during Super Bowl XLV had he rallied Chicago past Green Bay in the NFC Championshp Game. Think about Stephen McGee being handed the reins in that situation. Yikes.

3. Will Jay Cutler ever live this one down? He was horrible when healthy, but then he left an NFC Championship Game with a knee injury despite being able to ride a stationary bike and stand on the sideline the entire second half? Wow. Willis Reed, hide your eyes.

2. The Packers are coming to Super Bowl XLV, but that wasn't exactly an impressive victory. Felt like they had four of five chances to put the anemic Bears out of their misery and couldn't do it until rookie Sam Shields' interception of Hanie at the 12-yard line in the final minute.

1. Rodgers >> Tony Romo. He turned the 15-yard post to Greg Jennings into something as casual and reliable as a handoff.

Happy 17th birthday to The Ticket. After 17 years they are still kicking ass and taking names. Funny how the P90X Douche never talks about ratings anymore. Guess if I was getting my ass kicked everyday I'd want to avoid the subject as well.

Stay hard P-1's.

I've got a top ten list for youy Richie. If the Steelers win the Super Bowl, are they a dynasty? Where do they rank all time?

I've got my list. Ten through six are great teams, but I only consider the top five on this list to be true dynasties.

10. Early 90s Bills - are the only team on the list with no rings. Under coach Marv Levy and quarterback Jim Kelly, they went to four consecutive Super Bowls. They gave us Wide Right and the biggest comeback in NFL history, and it was under backup quarterback Frank Reich. Of course, I must mention Bruce Smith, possibly the best pass rushing defensive end ever. Whatever happened to Thurman Thomas's helmet?

9. Late 90s Broncos - won two consecutive Super Bowls with coach Mike Shanahan, tailback Trerrell Davis, and quarterback John Elway. (He team went to a total of five Super Bowls in the Elway era.

8. 70s Cowboys - went to five Super Bowls and won three. Under Tom Landry they became America's team. They gave us the Hail Mary, but they also gave us the Sickest Man in America.

7. Current Steelers - are going to their third Super Bowl in six years. The Ben Roethlisberger / Troy Polamalu era seems to have slowly sneaked up on us. Mike Tomlin is still only 38, so think of how much time he has to define and refine his legacy. A win in two weeks could have this team moving up.

6. Early 70s Dolphins - went to three consecutive Super Bowls, winning two of them. Coached by Don Shula and including legends like Bob Griese and Larry Csonka, the 1972 Dolphins were the only undefeated team ever.

5. Mid 90s Cowboys - won three Super Bowls in four years. Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, and Emmitt Smith formed the core of the offense. Along with Jay Novacek and Darryl Johnston they went to a combined 26 Pro Bowls.

4. Early 00s Patriots - won three Super Bowls in four years. Tom Brady and Bill Belichick will retire in the conversation as greatest quarterback and coach ever. They get the nod over the #5 dynasty because they went to five Super Bowls in twelve years, including an undefeated regular season in 2007.

3. 1980s 49ers - won four championships in nine years. They us (he Catch and arguably the greatestpassing duo of all time in Joe Montana and Jerry Rice.

2. 1970s Steelers - won four championships in six years. Among others, those teams included Terry Bradshaw, Joe Greene, Mel Blount, Lynn Swann, and Franco Harris. They gave us the Immaculate Reception and the Steel Curtain, a defense so good it pitched three consecutive shutouts and five total in 1976.

1. 1960s Packers - won five championships in seven years, including the first two Super Bowls. They named the most important trophy in North American sports after their coach.

Your #1 Observervation is that Rodgers is better than Romo?

Your other Observervations, I can live with and are fine. I'm so tired of you purposely trying to be opposite side of the argument guy so you can bring more stuff to the radio and your blog. I know it works, because we come here and either support you or shred you. Oh well, Happy Monday!

"Rodgers >> Tony Romo" Careful out there on that limb RW. As for Cutler, I'll give him and the medical staff the benefit of the doubt on the injury. The Bears were better off anyway having him on the bench for the 2nd half.

00s Patriots are immediately disqualified from being above the 90s Cowboys for missing the playoffs between Super Bowls.

Great list, Rob. Number 11 would have to be the 73 - 77 Vikings. Lost three Super Bowls in that time. No ring for Fran, one of the greats.

The 70s Cowboys won two Superbowls, not three

Well Rob M, Richie doesn't read the blog but we do. Strong list. See, if RW did lists like these, he wouldn't get ripped the way he does.

No effing way. Romo is clearly better than CuNtler. Now Rodgers, yeah, he's better than Romo.

You're right. I'm not logged in though. I typed that out on a BlackBerry, so I can't go back and correct it.

I just had to hope most of what I wrote looked right when I hit enter.
