GREEN BAY, Wis. Bruce Bochy Jersey . - Slowed by injury but perfect in the clutch, Aaron Rodgers used his accurate arm to help the Packers move one step closer to the Super Bowl.An officiating call that went Green Bays way also helped in a 26-21 win Sunday over the Dallas Cowboys.Rodgers went 9 of 9 in the fourth quarter, including and a laser-like 13-yard touchdown pass to Richard Rodgers for the go-ahead score with 9:10 left of the fourth quarter. The final period also featured the officials overturning what was initially a brilliant catch by Dallas Dez Bryant.Bryant jumped high for the 31-yard grab to the Packers 1 over cornerback Sam Shields, who had solid coverage on fourth-and-2 with 4:42 left in the game. But the play was ruled incomplete on replay review after Packers coach Mike McCarthy challenged the call.The NFL rule states the receiver must maintain control all the way to the ground. Replays showed Bryant bobbled the ball as he rolled into the end zone, with part of it touching the field.Some people think throwing the red flag is fun, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. It was such an impactful play, you had to challenge. It was a confident challenge. And a hopeful one, too.Hours after the game, Bryant tweeted: as I went to the ground I rolled over and I tipped the ball to gain better control. We lost and I accept it but please change that rule.The Cowboys were stunned. After going 8-0 away from home in the regular season, Dallas road winning streak came to a stunning end.This is really, seriously one of the more disappointing times Ive had on a personal basis, owner Jerry Jones said.All wasnt lost after the overturned call. The Cowboys could have seized another chance with the ball if their defence had stopped the Packers on two third-down plays with less than 3 minutes left.The Packers (13-4) converted both times and the Cowboys (13-5) started their off-season.While almost every Cowboys fan will remember this game for the reversed call, coach Jason Garrett said the loss didnt come down to officiating.We had 60 minutes, Garrett said. That play was big in the game, but there were plenty of other plays in the ballgame an unfortunately we didnt do things necessary to win the ballgame in the end.Five takeaways from the Packers first win in the playoffs when trailing at the half since a come-from-victory against San Francisco in 2002:CALF WATCH: Rodgers finished 24 of 35 for 316 yards and three scores. But he said he realized that his mobility might be more limited than he expected after throwing a 4-yard score to Andrew Quarless in the first quarter.Rodgers seemed be a bit more mobile as the game wore on. McCarthy said Rodgers got into a rhythm late.Rodgers said he felt better moving to his left out of the pocket. He suspected that he might be limited again this week at practice for the Seattle game.But there was no chance that he wasnt playing.I think I got 120 minutes left in me, Rodgers said.REMATCH: Seattle (13-4) beat Green Bay in the season opener, 36-16. The Seahawks have seemingly improved on defence since then, while the Packers are better on offence.But a slowed-down Rodgers will face a toughest test trying to evade Seattle defenders.Going up to Seattle, theyve got some guys that can get after the passer. We know its going to be a challenge, guard T.J. Lang said. We know everything starts with us up front as far as the run game and taking care of Aaron.WHAT A RUSH: Running back Eddie Lacy provided the offensive balance that the Packers desperately needed with Rodgers limited. He ran for 101 yards on 19 carries, including 45 on the Packers opening drive that ended with Quarless touchdown catch.Lacy has now run for at least 97 yards in six of his last seven games, just the kind of production the Packers need going into Seattle.ROMOS NIGHT: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was an efficient 15 of 19 for 191 yards and two touchdowns in his return to his home state. Romo grew up in Burlington in southeastern Wisconsin.But his last pass attempt to Bryant didnt go Dallas way.The calls, they dont go your way sometimes, Romo said. Its disappointing whenever it does not go the way that you want. We had a chance to win.CATCHING KARMA: The Detroit Lions also chimed in on Bryants overturned catch. Detroits star receiver, Calvin Johnson, had a similar reception reversed in 2010, and they also were stung last week in the wild-card round against the Cowboys when the officials picked up a flag that would have given them a critical fourth-quarter first down.The Lions tweeted: Sorry @dallascowboys. We know the feeling, with a link to the Megatron play and the hashtag CompletingTheProcess.The NFL has used the Johnson play in explaining the rule to coaches and players.___AP NFL website: and Pro Football Writer Barry Wilner contributed to this report. Johnny Cueto Jersey . -- Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday for the first time in his seven-year career because of a swollen muscle in his left upper back. Willie McCovey Jersey .com) - Calgary Flames forward Johnny Gaudreau has been selected as the NHLs Rookie of the Month for December, the league announced Friday. . Toronto dropped a 7-2 decision to the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday afternoon, with only a pair of late runs preventing a second straight shutout loss. Josh Willingham belted a two-run homer in the first inning and Kendrys Morales hit a bases-clearing double in the seventh as the Twins took the rubber game of the three-game series.We wanted to present to you our version of the best all-time Raptors team and we expect debate and look forward to your suggestions of where we went wrong. Below you will also find some reasoning why we picked the team we went with. So, here it is: our ALL-TIME RAPTORS TEAM. The All-Raptors Team The Toronto Raptors are, without question, Canadas NBA team and as their 20th season approaches, we thought that it would be interesting to put together the all-time best Raptors team or the All-Raptors Team. The teams entrants are based mostly on statistical achievements and league honours, but can also factor in that players impact on the team. Despite having not won an NBA Championship or frankly come close, hopes are high for this years Raptors team as they enter into the NBA Playoffs with the most wins in regular season franchise history, the third seed in the Eastern Conference and their second Atlantic Division championship. All-Raptors First Team Centre: Antonio Davis – 42.6 FG%, 77.0 FT%, 12.9 ppg, 9.2 rpg, 1.3 bpg, 1x NBA All-Star appearance (2001) An easy choice as Davis is the only centre in the history of the franchise to earn an NBA All-Star berth. Davis was the defensive anchor of the Raptors when they earned three straight NBA Playoffs berths and in the most successful incarnation of the team which made it to the Eastern Conference semifinals. Here are highlights from the only NBA All-Star Game that featured two starters from the Raptors: Power Forward: Chris Bosh – 49.2 FG%, 79.6 FT%, 20.2 ppg, 9.4 rpg, 1.2 bpg, 5x NBA All-Star, 03-04 NBA All-Rookie First Team, 06-07 NBA All-League 2nd Team Back when he was known as CB4, Bosh was the future star of the Raptors. Compared to Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett when he entered the storied 2003 NBA Draft, he fell into the Raptors lap when they selected fourth and has had a fantastic career since. Despite his decision to leave the Raptors for the Miami Heat, he had a great run in Toronto, leading the team to two NBA Playoffs berths and earning five All-Star appearances in seven seasons. One of which he earned using this clever video: Small Forward: Vince Carter – 44.6 FG%, 78.3 FT%, 23.4 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 3.9 apg, 5x NBA All-Star, 98-99 NBA Rookie of the Year, 98-99 NBA All-Rookie Team, 99-00 NBA All-League 3rd Team, 00-01 NBA All-League 2nd Team The only other Raptors player to earn more than a single All-Star Game berth while with the team is Vince Carter, AKA Vinsanity, AKA Air Canada, AKA Half Man Half Amazing. Carter deserves credit for putting the Raptors on the map as the leagues most exciting player. The Raptors started appearing in nationally-televised games in the U.S. and he was the face of Nike for a time. That time came to an end when he stopped dunking the ball in protest and demanded a trade. The Raptors obliged by trading Carter to the New Jersey Nets in the most lopsided trade in franchise history. Here is TNTs John Thompson interviewing Vince Carter after being traded and the Inside the NBA panel weighing in on it: Shooting Guard: DeMar DeRozan – 44.7 FG%, 81.5 FT%, 16.7 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 2.2 apg, 1x NBA All-Star DeRozan earned his first NBA All-Star berth this past season and played a huge role in the most successful Raptors regular season of all-time. The improvement of DeRozan over the years has been pronounced and he will be a major player in the teams future outlook. DeRozan is the first All-Star in the post-Bosh era of the Raptors. Here is “Chocolate Thunder” Darryl Dawkins giving DeMar DeRozan instruction in preparation for the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. Point Guard: Jose Calderon – 48.1 FG%, 87.7 FT%, 10.0 ppg, 7.2 apg, 2.5 rpg, 1.1 spg During his time with the Raptors and beyond, Calderon has been one of the most efficient offensive point guards in the NBA. Calderon has shone with his high shooting percentages, his near-automatic free throw shooting and his incredibly low assist-to-turnover ratio. Because of these attributes, he was narrowly selected for the All-Raptors First Team. Heres Calderon talking smack to Kevin Garnett: All-Raptors Second Team C: Marcus Camby – 44.8 FG%, 65.4 FT%, 15.7 ppg, 7.9 rpg, 3.3 bpg, 1.2 spg, 96-97 NBA All-Rookie Team Marcus Camby played two seasons with the Raptors after being drafted second overall in the 1996 NBA Draft. The Raptors actually won the draft lottery, landing them the top pick in a draft with Allen Iverson at the top, but had to move down a spot due to their expansion agreement with the league (in hindsight, one of the worst moments in franchise history). Cambys two seasons showed off his incredible defensive prowess, which would ultimately lead him to winning the NBAs Defensive Player of the Year Award as a member of the Denver Nuggets in 2006-07. Camby was traded to the New York Knicks after the 97-98 season in exchange for Charles Oakley, who would provide the Raptors with veteran leadership after drafting Vince Carter. Eventually, Camby was traded back to the Raptors as part of the Andrea Bargnani trade before this season, but he asked for his release so that he could go to a contender. Thanks for the vote of confidence Marcus. Hows that four-seed treating ya? Here is a young Marcus Camby talking about overcoming adversity for the Raptors: PF: Amir Johnson – 57.2 FG%, 70.3 FT%, 8.7 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 1.2 apg, 1.1 bpg When “The Junkyard Dog” Jerome Williams left the Raptors, they lost a player who has embraced the city of Toronto and been an advocate for it. Amir Johnson has filled those shoes. Johnson has been a great defensive presence and efficient offensive player who has improved dramatically each season since being acquired from the Bucks in a deal that brought him and Sonny Weems to Torontofor Carlos Delfino and Roko Ukic. Johnson also has an interesting piece of trivia attached to him, being the last high school player to be selected in an NBA Draft. Heres Amir Johnson at his first Leafs game: SF: Jalen Rose – 43.1 FG%, 82.2 FT%, 16.2 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 3.4 apg, 0.7 spg The point-forward position was made popular last decade by players like Rose, Lamar Odom and Antoine Walker. Rose was brought in via trade for Antonio Davis after Davis complained about his children having tto learn French in public school. Custom San Francisco Giants Jerseys. The expectation was that Rose would be able to find openings for Vince Carter and he did for a season until Carter was shipped off. Rose, ironically, was traded along with a first round pick in exchange for Antonio Davis expiring contract. Davis would start eight more games with the Raptors at age 37 and then retire. Heres Rose giving his account of the legendary behind-the-scenes altercation between now-TSN NBA analyst Sam Mitchell and Vince Carter. SG: Doug Christie – 41.4 FG%, 81.7 FT%, 14.2 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 3.8 apg, 2.1 spg During his tenure in Toronto, Christie was known more for the relationship he had with his possessive wife Jackie than his defensive prowess. Christie was a jack-of-all-trades, but was primarily lauded for his ability to steal the ball and get the offence moving in transition. Christie went on to play an instrumental role on the Sacramento Kings during their years of title contention after the Raptors traded him there for Corliss Williamson. Heres Christie and Reggie Slater in a Toronto Maple Leafs Nike commercial: PG: Damon Stoudamire – 41.5 FG%, 82.0 FT%, 19.6 ppg, 8.8 apg, 4.1 rpg, 1.1 spg, 95-96 NBA Rookie of the Year, 95-96 NBA All-Rookie First Team “Mighty Mouse” was the original face of the Raptors and won the Rookie of the Year Award after the Raptors inaugural season despite getting booed by fans at the 1995 NBA Draft, which took place in Toronto. Raptors fans wanted the team to draft Ed OBannon. Stoudamire was a great floor general with a pass-first mentality, but also with great offensive prowess. Here is Stoudamires classic Nike commercial: All-Raptors Third Team C: Keon Clark – 50.0 FG%, 64.5 FT%, 15.2 ppg, 9.7 rpg, 1.4 apg, 2.1 bpg Clark was a really good player with a very sad story. Clark was an alcoholic and in a court hearing admitted to drinking a half-pint to full-pint of gin per day throughout his entire career. Despite his alcoholism, Clark was a tremendous talent, who was very efficient offensively and possessed great defensive prowess, especially when it came to shot blocking due to his incredible length. Clark retired young and told The Toronto Stars Dave Feschuk, "Anybody could use a guy like me when it comes down to basketball. I do know how to play it. But I dont know how to play those other games that go along with the NBA. Im non-conformist." Clark is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence in Vermilion County jail after pleading guilty to both a weapons charge and a drinking under the influence charge. Here is Marv Albert calling Clarks monster dunk on 76” Shawn Bradley: PF: Donyell Marshall – 45.7 FG%, 75.9 FT%, 13.8 ppg, 8.7 rpg, 1.3 apg, 1.0 spg, 1.1 bpg This was likely the toughest spot to fill as Marshall gets the nod over Andrea Bargnani, Jerome Williams and Charles Oakley for the final power forward spot on the All-Raptors Team. Why Marshall? Simply put, he was the consummate role player who did everything well. He had tremendous range for a big man, was a plus rebounder and defender. Marshall had one of the best statistical seasons for a Raptors player, averaging 16.2 ppg, 10.7 rpg, 1.2 spg and 1.6 bpg, while shooting 46.7 FG%, 40.3 3P% and 74.1 FT%. Here is Marshall sinking 12 three-pointers in a single game, an NBA record that he shares with Kobe Bryant to this day: SF: Tracy McGrady – 44.8 FG%, 71.2 FT%, 11.1 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 2.5 apg, 1.0 spg, 1.4 bpg Another event in Raptors franchise history that can be filed under “one of the worst things to happen” was Tracy McGrady leaving the Raptors in free agency for the Orlando Magic. McGrady was coming off of a 15.4 ppg and 6.3 rpg career year as a 20-year-old before the days of restricted free agency and bolted for warmer pastures. McGrady would go on to win the Most Improved Player award, make seven all-star appearances, finish top-five in Most Valuable Player voting twice, make two All-NBA First Team appearances and average over 30 points-per-game in a season. His versatility was amazing and he was considered a top-10 player for nearly a decade after leaving the Raptors. Had he stayed in Toronto with his cousin Vince Carter, who knows if there would have been a championship banner or at least an Eastern Conference championship banner hanging in the rafters at the Air Canada Centre at this moment. Here are Carter, McGrady and Oakley discussing what could have been on TSNs Off the Record: SG: Morris Peterson – 42.1 FG%, 78.2 FT%, 12.0 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 1.8 apg, 1.0 spg, 00-01 NBA All-Rookie First Team When it came to valuable role players, few were as good as Morris Peterson, who was one of the best sixth men in the league. Peterson always provided a spark off the bench and embraced that role during his seven seasons with the Raptors. Here is Peterson hitting the most clutch shot in Raptors history while Chuck Swirsky goes bananas and Wizards coach Eddie Jordan shakes his head in disbelief: PG: Kyle Lowry – 41.4 FG%, 80.7 FT%, 14.9 ppg, 7.0 apg, 4.7 rpg, 1.5 spg When the Raptors traded a barely-protected first round selection to the Rockets for Kyle Lowry, fans were flabbergasted. After all, Lowry had the reputation of being a coach killer and a curmudgeon. Since then, Lowry has made those fans feel great shame, playing up to his potential and nearly earning his first All-Star Game berth this past season. Yahoo! Sports columnist Adrian Wojnarowski wrote a great piece about Lowrys miraculous transformation into a leader and one of the leagues best point guards. Lowrys future after this season is up in the air as he will be a restricted free agent, but given his chemistry with his teammates and his relationship with Raptors coach Dwane Casey, many would be surprised to see him leave a situation in which he has thrived. Here is Lowry throwing his shoes to a Raptors fan in Chicago, only to have them intercepted by a Bulls fan: We want to know who YOU would have picked. Vote for your team by Tweeting us @BarDown (using the hashtag #BarDownRaps) or emailing us at or just post your team in the comments. We will follow up with results as well as get some pics from other famous Raptors fans.
