NFC Championship Weekend

Are you feeling down this weekend, with the Packers eliminated from the playoffs? Feeling like you don’t want to watch the NFC title game on Sunday featuring two teams with which the Packers have a recently ugly history? Fear not… this post will put a smile on your face. This is a look back at the 2010 NFC Championship game that sent Green Bay to Super Bowl XLV. Remember the joy of beating the Bears that Sunday in January 2011? See, you feel better already.

Look how many Bears it takes to bring down FB John Kuhn. 

The future Super Bowl MVP looks to throw a long one downfield. 

A Jay Cutler sandwich. It comes on a Matthews/Jenkins roll and is served with chips and a cookie.

RB Brandon Jackson (remember him?) gaining some yardage. 

DB Sam Shields gets a sack of Cutler. 

The B.J. Raji touchdown off an INT. 

Get rid of it, man! 

Rodgers runs and leaps for a TD. 

“That’s what I’m talkin’ about!” 

Touchdown-saving tackle following lucky Bears’ INT. 

All eyes on the ball. 

Mr. Shields saves the day. 


I’ll bet you feel like an idiot going home and washing that paint off after a loss. 

Soldier Field becomes Lambeau Field (South).
