That's the way to kick the season off right.

Positives:

- Pass rush showed up! Loaved our hunger for attacking the QB tonight. Loved the hits Kamp/KGB/Hawk got on Travaris.

- Rodgers was solid. He came out and had a good outing. He will hopefully learn from this and continue to improve. Loved the accuracy.

- ST are looking like a solid group early. Terrific job. Finally Blackmon has a chance to show what he can do, and let's hope injuries don't hurt him again.


Few complaints though:

- Too many penalties. McCarthy will be mad, he'll make it better by the Lions game.

- Running game needs to be more consistent. Loads better than at this point last year, but it still has to get better.

- Too conservative at the end. Go for a first down, don't run three straight times and hope the Vikes can't do much with the little time left on the field. That's not the McCarthy I know.

The fact that we won with 239283 penalties speaks VOLUMES about this team.

It says a lot about COMPOSURE, about coming back after these bad plays.

It says a lot about TALENT, about being able to come back in the first place.

A lot of teams, after the driver TD that got called back, might have crumbled. Not this team. Not the Green Bay Packers.

And I think it might be wise to review Bigby's place on the hands team. I can't believe the ball went through his hands. That's inexcusable. Thankfully it went out of bounds.

Waaaaaayh too much yellow on the field, and if affected both teams. As poorly as Jackson played, the score should have been much worse.

Congrats GB on the well deserved week 1 win.

A very frustrating game to say the least.

In my opinion, we pretty much dominating the game, yet we allowed them to stay in the game until the end. Reminds me a lot of the first game of last year. Sloppy game, great help from our special teams.

It's comforting to know that we are only going to improve. As sloppy as we looked, we still looked pretty damn good.

Jackson looked pretty slow, indecisive, timid, and week. Grant is obviously way better. I could tell he was getting winded easily tonight. We need to get him in shape.

Bring on the Lions!!

Yes, excellent game except for the penalties. Better than expected showing for Aaron. We should all sleep well tonight.

Collins had a couple of hard hits. Loved seeing that.

About time he progress and become apt at making game changing plays, let's hope this is the beginning of a new Collins.

Thought we came out flat but quickly turned it on after the long completion to Jennings.

I thought we were too conservative at times. Didn't like not going for the TD at the end of the first half.

Frost looked good. Consistent.

Blackmon was HUGE!

How about A.J. Hawk??

I was thinking he wouldn't have a great game coming off of an injury, but he was all over the place tonight!

Can we say breakout year for him?

Atari Bigby. He's a great game clinching closer as well.

I missed parts of the end of the first half, so I have a question:

Did the Pack have more than 1 timeout?

If so, I find it really odd that McCarthy didn't at least attempt to score, even if it was on a quick slant or throwing it to Driver/Jennings and letting them try and do their thing in the open field.

So Paul, how about changing that signature up to something a little more factually accurate? =)

The Pack did have one timeout left.

However, I really don't disagree the call. Young quarterback, first start, an easy chance to go up two possessions. Take the safe road. Obviously it backfired.

I wouldn't expect to see that by midseason once a bit more confidence is established.

How about "and Rodgers first start and Allen's first start as a Viking end with the same result, A Packers win!"
