Me and sarcasm are not bed fellows.. there is no doubt about it in this media.

But I will agree.. there is no reason to be arrogant about this win. But we did what we had to do to take the next step into the playoffs. Stop AP from taking over the game.


Alright. Sarcasm aside, I'll shoot straight.

We stopped AD because their QB situation was so bad, we could throw 11 people at AD. It was a joke. If the Vikings had an all All-Star OL and an All-Star FB, then it might have been more fair.

I'm not gonna gloat about this win. We didn't stop AD. Joe Webb stopped AD.

That's what I was getting at.

See and what I am saying is it really wouldn't have mattered with Ponder either.. he of zero starts in cold weather. He that needs the play action to assist him at this point. Could have he shocked the world again.. possibly.. but not probable.

Oh and if that is your honest opinion.. I really am at a loss with your sarcasm. lol.

AP drives that offense.. much like Rodgers drives ours. Take them out at their strength.

At the end of the day... we just believe in different fundamentals in the game of football.

Well, maybe. Can you imagine what the Vikings might have done with Webb's running ability AND AD if the Packer defense had played as undisciplined (especially the linebackers) as they did a week ago?

AD got 99 yards. That's a good day for anyone but him. So they didn't shut him down. But the D played disciplined and fundamental football and that was sufficient to contain him at the level of "good". Sure, not having a pass option with Webb helped. But I'm not sure the difference between what Ponder offered and what Webb offered. Based on what I've seen of the two, the difference seems to be that Ponder throws fluff balls that allow DBs to close and/or intercept, whereas Webb throws bounce passes that no one can catch.

I'm bugged about the second half. It's like after the Pack went up by 21 no one on either team seemed to care anymore. They went from fighting hard to putting in the time until the end. Were it not for the lack of removing starters, most of the second half looked like a preseason second-half not like a postseason one.
