From my seats it was GREAT..

On 2 of Rodgers runs i think he took off to early, instead of passing it..I know the 1st longer run he had, I CLEARLY saw 2 wr's ( Jennings and Driver ) break a pattern off and they were both WIDE open 20 yards down.. but Rodgers ran it..

Aaron Rodgers might have seen his receivers slightly open downfield, but decided to take the sure-fire 10 yard run, instead of the pass which is could easily be off-target, dropped, intercepted, etc.

The QB has got to weigh the risk vs. reward of each decision during the game and only has a split second to do so.

Getting a sure-fire first down is better than risking a 20+ yard pass in a close game.

Yes I am fully aware of that..but my vantage point I saw the entire field and was wondering WHY..

All your reasons could have been why...He knew he could get 10 yards..

** edit **

Just realized that Brett would have thrown it, might take some getting used to a running q/b now

Other than some stupid penalties on their part the offensive line did a great job. If you remember they were going to get killed by the Vikes "D" line but we give up 0 sacks and 130+ yards running against the best run defense in the business.

The good news is we win while not playing a great overall game against a key opponent.

Rodgers was unbelievable for all the pressure that guy was under and what he did out there. IF the "0" line doesn't take it away he gets another 70+ yards and totals two TD's which would have put him well over a 100 rating for the game.

The "O" line was sloppy and the defense inconsistant at times but Rodgers was steady as a rock.

Then at the end of the game The Packers just sat on the ball instead of trying to make a first down, but the defense came through and got the turnover and the team got the win which is the most important thing.


Yeah that always drives me absolutely crazy. That and "prevent" defense. We should have tried to get one first down in that situation. THEN sit on it. We basically just gave them the ball with 2 minutes left. Yeah our defense came through, but why just GIVE them another chance to score? I have never liked that strategy, and never will.

And no I would not have complained if they would have turned the ball over trying to get the first down. Had that happened, so be it. At least they are trying to get a first down.


The holding penalty on Tausher takes all that away. Trying to go for it at that point is pure stupidity. That was the WORST penalty of the night because it stops the clock. Otherwise the Vikes get it back with about a minute twenty and no time outs. If you let a team go seventy five yards in that case you deserve to lose.

The Packers made the right call on that series. Had there been another minute on the clock or so you make more of an effort for a first down but they were not anticipating Tausher to make a bone head play and give the Vikes 40 more seconds.

What do I think.

I think we won, we can definitely take a lot of things from this game to build upon. But we have a ton of clean up to do this week, granted we play the paper Lions this week, but if we expect to be the playoff team we think we are we better strap on the helmets this week in practice.

Rodgers was excellent for all that was built into this game.

Grant looked good on short reps so far

Hawk was a beast.

Overall the defense played well, bent a little late but a good showing.

Oline needs major OT this week.. if I am Campen and co.. those boys are working the graveyard overtime this week.

For all the talk about BJack.. I was disappointed in him.

Overall a good game on a team that looks scary on paper.. next week will give us a little better gauge to where we are really at, meaning, was alot of the mistakes a forced type thing because of the opposition or were we just the shaky along the oline. I believe somewhere in the middle is probably accurate.


OT - ILikeThePackers39 holy sig batman.. that is a cool sig but a monster in size.

Oh, hell no, I didn't make it -- I just found it via a GIS. I can fix your tube amp or re-wire your guitar or something like that, but I can't do graphic design or anything web-related. Call me Luddite.

Yeah. Forgot about that. That's unlike Mike McCarthy . He's usually much more aggressive. Wonder why he did that.
