Then they called that stupid play action, or whatever the hell that was. I frikkin blew a gasket. The same exact play they tried on the drive before and lost 20 yards on, and almost got Drew killed. I don't even remember the next 10 or 15 minutes after that play.
Donít know why we didnít take the 3 at that point in the game, which I thought was the turning point. With 3 points that would have dropped their lead to 5 but instead the Packers did a 14pt swung on us. Iím kind of torn because I like the fact we went for it but we left the points and the wrong play was called
