late in the 4th when the packers were down 30-13, on the drive that osi got called on that bogus roughing the passer, aaron rodgers rushed for a 1st down around or inside our 30 yard line. after doing this he threw the first down arm out...like he was celebrating something. then after driver got the touchdown, there seemed to be some mild celebration as well.

i've always liked the packers and aaron rodgers, so i'm not trying to bag on them and rub it in, but this was kind of odd. please tell me someone else took notice?

it would really bother me if eli, or any other giant, did that being down 30-13 in the 4th quarter of a divisional playoff game at home.

surprised no one in the media has mentioned this.

Who cares. If nothing else it was probably more about trying to gain some confidence, like they might have a chance. If you're down being sullen the entire time isn't going to help. So I dont mind celebration, just not over doing it.

Exactly. And they were......what if they had recovered that on-side kick and gotten a quick score......that would have made it a 3 point game......</P>

apparently not you. haha. but thanks for the feedback. just an honest observation that i'm surprised i haven't heard discussed.

anyway, i just watched the highlights and noticed this again. i remember thinking during the game how pissed i'd be if i were a packer fan that he was carrying himself like that.

but you're right, probably not a big deal.

I remember the first down signal and did think that it was odd - like the situation his team was in wasn't clear to him. Maybe the Packers were so sure they were destined to win that they still hadn't read the writing on the wall. Maybe it was an attempt to rally the troops to do what was nearly impossible.

However, I don't remember the celebration after the TD. Maybe I went to pee about then.

I think I saw him do it on a non first down play... Thinking it has something to do with the formation or something.... I could be wrong...

In rewatching the game, like Eli's "Omaha", Rodgers does a sort of "nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh" ... Was very strange.... I was kind of waiting for "NOONAN!" to come out.

Kinda the opposite situation...but reminds me of when we played the Saints...at some point in the 4th quarter we were down by like 30 points or something and Cruz scored a touchdown and didn't do the salsa dance. I was very proud of him and thought he made the right choice, we weren't in a position to be celebrating anything.

Just something to think about in comparison.

I knew it was over when Nicks caught that hail mary pass before halftime. I know I sound like a horrible fan but I just got down in the dumps when that happened.

I didn't relax until Jacobs punched it in to make it 37-20.</P>


Between Rodgers and the terrible officiating, I thought anything was possible just prior to that.</P>

JMF we didnt deserve to win and those were some bad calls against you guys. I am a huge Packer fan but if we had won everyone would be saying we shouldnt have because of those calls. I know that was a fumble by Jennings. In reality we should have lost 37-6 as much as i hate to say it.

This.

Not to discredit the original poster's point. He may still have a valid one. However, I do believe that it was not so much a first down celebration thing as a hand-signal to get his team lined up properly. You could see sometimes he was doing it while looking around at his teammates and he didn't always seem to be making the gesture perpendicular to the sidelines.

Rodgers might be a tiny bit arrogant, but I really think he is one of the classier QBs in the league.

Of course, no one out-classes a Manning. =P
