Ugh.

I don’t know what else to say. I’m sure it’s the same thing most of you are thinking as well. How does one properly sum up a 27-point beat down at the hands of the Green Bay Packers?

This was the NFC’s No. 6 seed, a team that lost 20-17 in this same building back on Nov. 28, walking around the Georgia Dome like it owned the place. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers may as well have been Arthur Blank’s spoiled nephew Felix, sauntering into the end zone in his underpants and dropping a deuce wherever he pleased.

As far as I know, Felix is a fictional person. But that’s what 366 yards and three touchdowns feel like against a team powerless to stop it. It’s frustrating. It’s embarrassing. It’s … a dose of reality.
