I also saw some sort of quick ad about a replay being shown. MassPackersFan might be right, I saw a 9:30 timeslot too. Keep an eye on Wednesday.

I recall last year the Packers having a lot of sloppy penalties early on. For a while they lead the league actually. Now that came down last year and hopefully for the Pack it does again this year.

I noticed Minnesota just committed penalties. GB committed BIG penalties especially on the Driver play which was executed to perfection by Rodgers and Driver. I guess Tony Moll didn't get the memo.

Offensive Line I would say held up very well without Scott Wells.

Rodgers offensive player of the game

Hawk defensive player of the game

Blackmon special teams player of the game

Kudos to Bob Sanders for calling more blitzes.


Reality Check Time:

If TJ didn't throw that pick, they were on their way to another score!

They were scoring alot in the second half. I don't think most of you know how close the Packers were to losing that game. Fortunately, the playcalling by the Vikings was terrible in the first half, or they might have won handily.

Some postives on the Packer side, but lets not get ahead of ourselves people. It was only 1 game.

The season is a long one, and we'll have to see how this team holds up throughout the year.

To me, it's too early to tell.

Look at New England.

That was fantastic! After all the BS this summer it's nice to have the first win in the can! Sloppy, yes, satisfying YES!

I can't stand Tony Kornheiser! Stuck here in chicago makes it impossible to mute the TV and listen to the radio (so does the 2 second delay with Directv) but I would have given anything to be able to. Maybe they'll can his ass before the Nov. Monday night game.
Aaron Rodgers deserves much respect for an 81.8 % completion rate. He looked better than expected, and I have high expectations for him.

Bring on the Lions!

The Viking DB's were horrible.

After the Lions game Rodgers will come crashing down to earth when he has to face some GOOD defenses.

Then we will see what we will see. So live it up now, I guess. lol.

If it wasn't for the punt return, the Packers would have lost.

I know the blind homerism is rampant now, but this team has a ways to go before they can be ranked with the elite, imo.

we played a team that many so-called "experts" picked to go at least to the nfc championship game, if not all the way. trust me, roddyboy - we are all VERY well aware this was one game & we have alot more to play. all we are doing is simply enjoying the fact that despite what the "experts" kept saying, rodgers didn't fall on his ass, throw INT's all over the place, OR get sacked umpteen times by allen.

If the Vikings hadn't made one mistake they could've kept driving... and if we hadn't made mistake after mistake we would've had at least 10 more points on the board.

Waaaah Waaaaaaahhhhh Roddy.

I don't see anyone crowning this team -- I see people expressing joy and relief that we have a competitive team, especially since folks like you have been crowing about how we're barely a Div. II NCAA team w/ Aaron at the helm.

Minny's DBs aren't up to par w/ the best in the league, but if you're trying to claim now that they don't have a good defense, all that does is expose your own bias (against this team -- why, I don't know, but whatever yanks yer chain).

It's a good team, with a good QB. I'm not going to say they'll win ___ games, because there's no way to know that -- I do feel confident that they'll be competitive throughout the season, though. Very confident.

All I'm saying is that the game was a lot closer than you think.

I (and my fingernails) fully realize how close it was there at the end, believe me. :lol: I do think that we outplayed them, but also had far more mistakes (i.e. big penalties) than them.
I'm happy that we got out of there with a W against AD and that defense with that many penalties, and I saw plenty of reasons to feel confident about the team as we move forward and clean some stuff up.

I will say this. I don't know if we would've won this game with Favre.

Yes, it was a close game. We know this, evidenced by the complaints many have expressed that they shouldn't have run 3 heavy set running plays in a row on that last drive. The Jets/Miami game was close, too -- and I would hope you realize that Miami isn't anywhere near the team Minnesota is.

But, we also WON the game, as did the Jets. And when it comes time for the playoffs to roll around, wins and losses determine who gets in, not style points or the margin of victory.

The rest is all sour grapes on your part -- whatever axe you have to grind against the current team is clearly stronger than what actually occurred out on the field last night.
