lol, nice.

I mean, I can't deny it, I would love to have him opposite of Kampman. However, I would be disgusted if we gave up that much for him. At that price, he better be getting like 5 sacks a game. Thankfully, we have management who actually thinks with their heads instead of their wallets.

Ahhh, good to be a Packer fan . . . as always.

I ended up at my Mother's house this evening. No internet (I need to set up a wireless network over there.) but at least she has HD and a big screen TV so that was ok.
I want to catch up with everyone else's post game comments.

First I am thrilled with the win. Any "W" is a good one.

The most frustrating part of the game for me was the penalties. I can wait to see what this line will look line once Sitton and Wells are in there. While there were some questionable no calls on the DB's one of the pass interference calls didn't look like it was much of a penalty to me. So referee crews are known to call more penalties than other crews. I wish we had week to week stats on the refs so we knew before hand watch to expect. With that said I expect the refs to throw the flag when there are 12 men in the huddle (GB) or 12 men on the field (MN) and the other dumb plays that both teams had.

Lots of pressure on T Jack tonight. I think it was a mistake for MN not to run AP 30 times. Or at the very least get him the ball 30 times (which would incl the short passes.) Jackson should never throw the ball 35 times in a game. Thank you Brad Childress.

I can not be too hard on B Jackson, he may have only had 12 yards but there were several occasions that he had not one but two defenders on him in the GB backfield. That is not his fault. Other times it seemed like the whole MN defense was waiting for him at the line of scrimmage. Take away the one big run of 57 yards and Grant had a rather mortal game. Kiddos to the whole GB team for getting 139 yards against one of the best run defenses in the league.

The conservative play calling at the end of the game was frustrating. But in reality Mike McCarthy was very conservative about 90% of the time. That helped set up the few big strikes they had. Despite what humpy dumpty AKA Tony Kornheiser said, going for the for the FG just before half made so much sense. It should have been automatic. Those 3 points would have taken a lot of pressure off the offense. There was only a few seconds left and no timeouts. MN had been putting pressure on AR. It is tough to get the ball into the endzone when the you are on such a short field. A sack or a receiver not getting the ball out of bounds would have ruined their chance for the FG on 4th down. GB had the lead. It would have been different if they were down by 7 points.

Big applause to Cliffy for sticking it to Allen. I hated the article earlier in the week that said Allen was going to try and terrorize AR. Any QB that is terrorized does not belong in the NFL . (even on the PS.)

What a defense. I think it will only get better as the year goes on. Lots of tight coverage. Lots of hard hits. Lots of pressure on T Jack. Just a half of a second a few times is all that it would have taken to get more sacks.

Gregorius is the man. Key fumble recovery. Huge pass reception. Too bad he missed out on a TD tonight. Loved it when DD broke a big reception to move the sticks and keep the clock running.

I was so happy that Blackmon got the return. He and management has had to suffer thru injuries long enuf. Great to see it work out for him.

The thing I liked best about Aaron Rodgers is when he would tuck the ball and get the 1st down. that is something a former GB QB did in his early years but gave up on too quickly. His runs will open up more passes later in the year.

Announcers- As we all know Kornheiser's a jerk. Even his mother turns the sound down when he is in the booth. I normally do not care for Jaws but he made some outstanding comments tonight. If he keeps this up I my have to change my opinion of him.

I was thinking the same thing Greg.

Well that's all I have to say about that. I feel better now.

Great game, big confidence boost for me and this team. Rodgers played great and he sounds real humble in his post game conference.. I'm really excited for next weeks game.

I'm hoping Driver can step up, hopefully Jones plays and Nelson gets some receptions. Grant should have a great game vs Detroit. Lets see what happens!

Was I the only one screaming at Bigby to fall down after the interception?

He was trying to make a big play which could have been disastrous.

If it happens again I think Mike McCarthy will drum it into him to just eat dirt.

That being said we won.

A - Rod was consisten as hell all night. and as I predicted AJ was awesome.

Special teams coverage and returns was great. Frost looks a beast, he can really boom those punts long and high.

Wow!!!!!!!!!!

Didn't know typing Mike McCarthy gives an Mike McCarthy picture.

I want to type Aaron Rodgers and get an Aaron Rodgers picture too

maybe an AB for Atari Bigby and an AJ for the Hawkster.

Just so he doesn't feel left out heres a Ted Thompson mention.

Even play-by-play announcer Mike Tirico was screaming for Bigby to fall down, and he was an impartial observer. As good as Bigby is, he can be scary at times. He looked to me like he wanted to attempt a lateral. I hope he gets an ass-chewing from the coaches for that run.

I hate all those heads that pop up, by the way. To each his own, I guess.

I know I was. The party was over and they were turning out the lights. And Bigby was trying to pat his return stats. I just knew he was going to fumble while he was out there trying to make a big play even bigger.

This game was absolutely fantastic.

-Aaron showed he can make big plays if he needs to(the Jennings play. Gregolicious) and he showed he can manage the game as well.

- The defense played well. I wish they could have got more pressure on T Jack, but we did whack him pretty good a few times in the 4th qtr.
- That block Korey Hall laid on Darren Sharper to spring the long run by Grant was a thing of beauty. If you didn't see it, go to nfl.com and watch the highlights.
- The Greg Jennings catch. That was absolutely text book on how to go up and get a pass.

Bottom line- I could watch this one all over again. I wonder if the NFL channel is going to show it this week? :wav:

I don't think Aaron could of had a better game. His TD pass was magic, he's got a cannon for an arm and looked pretty calm back there.

Brandon Jackson didn't look good tonight, I'm willing to give him a pass because the Vikings are tough but next week vs. Detroit I would expect the running game to really turn it up.


The flags went both ways. There were shitty calls against both the Packers and the Vikings, so to say that the Pack should have won by 10+ is a little inflated. But you are still on the morning after high... so I guess I won't complain too much. ;)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA wait....


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA !


AAAAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA


ok i'm better.


hahahahahaha.


lol. Glad you got that out of your system. Allen will still prove his worth to the Vikings. One game does not determine the season.

That was one of the first things I really liked about the Aaron Rodgers debut. The fact that he can scramble every now and then and pick up some easy first downs with his feet is a new weapon in the GB offense. AR's accuracy with his passes also has me very excited. He handled the stress like a veteran tonight which I'll freely admit I didn't think he would especially at home. My game ball on offense belongs to AR; on defense I give the nod to AJ Hawk who seemed to be all over the field last night.

I thought when I was watching NFL Total Access late at night after the game, a little banner on the bottom said "Want to watch this game again? Wed. 9:30pm EST". I can't verify that right now but it's worth looking into. :thumbright:

NFL channel lists the Tue games Jets vs Fish of course and Carolina's upset of SD. No word yet as to the Wed nite games. Least not that I saw.
