Packers vs Cowboys: The best 4th quarter ever?

To be fair, I have not seen every 4th quarter drive in the history of the NFL.   Nevertheless, I doubt if anything from the past was better than we saw on Sunday night.    

Let's see what Neil Paine wrote about that 4th quarter:    
Packers-vs-Cowboys became only the eighth playoff game in NFL (or AFL) history to feature at least four fourth-quarter ties and/or lead changes. But beyond that, it was also one of only two games in which a team entered the fourth quarter down by double digits but stormed back to tie or take the lead, then gave up another score and then fought to re-gain the tie or lead again.1
Dallas entered the fourth trailing Green Bay by 15 points  and had a mere 7 percent chance of winning. They then scored twice and converted a two-point conversion to tie the game at 28, raising their win probability to 46 percent. Then, after Crosby knocked down a 56-yard kick to re-take the lead for Green Bay with 93 seconds left, the Cowboys’ win probability was bumped back down to 18 percent.
But the game wasn’t done yet. Cowboys QB Dak Prescott led a 6-play, 42-yard field-goal drive to tie the game again, raising Dallas’s win probability to 49 percent. That number rose even higher, to 54 percent, after an Aaron Rodgers sack on the following drive appeared to kill any hope of another Packers response. 
But with 12 seconds left, Rodgers hit Jared Cook for a 36-yard completion, Cook dragged his feet to barely stay in bounds, and Crosby gave Green Bay the 34-31 victory with another long kick.
Well, someone had to win and someone had to lose.    It's a shame that these two teams won't get to play for the NFC title next.    My guess is that most of the country would love to see a rematch!

A Man who left a Party without Seats or Ideas

Over the next few days, we will read a lot of articles about President Obama.
We will hear from his supporters that he saved us from a Great Depression and his critics will say that he messed up everything in the Middle East.   
We may also read that leaves office with high approval ratings. In fact, the RCP average is 54%, a very good number.
We probably won’t hear a lot about the state of the Democrat Party. Looking back, President Obama’s real legacy that he devastated the party after all of the hope of 2008. This is from Deroy Murdock:
Behold the tremendous power that Democrats have frittered away — from January 2009 through the aftermath of Election Day — thanks to Obama and his ideas:
Democrats surrendered the White House to political neophyte Donald J. Trump.
U.S. Senate seats slipped from 55 to 46, down 16 percent.
U.S. House seats fell from 256 to 194, down 24 percent.
Democrats ran the Senate and House in 2009. Next year, they will control neither.
Governorships slid from 28 to 16, down 43 percent.
State legislatures (both chambers) plunged from 27 to 14, down 48 percent
Trifectas (states with Democrat governors and both legislative chambers) cratered from 17 to 6, down 65 percent.
These numbers only tell part of the story.
His real legacy is that it will be very difficult for any future Democrat to propose a government solution to anything. My guess is that we will now enter an era where most of the solutions to these problems will come from governors and state legislatures. We will look to the states rather than the federal government. This is partially because most Americans are now living in a state where a successful GOP governor is delivering results, from Texas to Florida to Michigan.
Also, President Obama’s weakness overseas has convinced most Americans that the U.S. must lead not just watch events. Our choice is not between doing nothing or sending 500,000 troops. Our real option is to lead and behave like the superpower that President Obama did not realize that he was governing.
We wish President Obama a happy retirement. I hope that he is ready to see how much of his legacy turned out to be a lot different than his followers predicted eight years ago this week.
P.S. You can listen to my show (Canto Talk) and follow me on Twitter.
