Packers vs. Steelers - The Haiku Review
My brain is numb after that. Here be poems.
Steelers do not blink After a Flynnpressive drive. All tied up through one.
The Packers scored. The Steelers answered. Both teams had no trouble moving the ball. A sign of things to come?
Ed Lacy can fly. No really, I saw him fly. What a running back.
If he hadn't already, Eddie Lacy sealed his place in Packers lore with his cutback, spinning, whirling, barrel-rolling (technically aileron rolling) touchdown run in the second quarterback. I'm glad he's ours.
Still want Le'veon? His fumble is Eddie's score. Illegal batting.
Sure, they got help from a questionable illegal batting call (which is a thing, apparently). But the Packers did benefit from a bad fumble by Le'veon Bell, whom Steelers coach Mike Tomlin infamously said he prefers to Eddie Lacy. (Which is a totally manufactured controversy, by the way. But who cares.)
Nick, Don, and Matt all flop. This ending is so fitting. Missing little things.
An encroachment penalty by Nick Perry, a false start by Don Barclay, and horrific clock management by Matt Flynn sent the Packers out with a whimper after a furious fourth quarter rally. In a season where the Packers have been eternally derailed by a lot of little things (and some big ones), this seemed a perfect end.
