    Any loss to the packers, let alone the 5th in a row is automatically an F

    Offense:
    C-.
    Ran the ball well.
    Passed the ball well.
    Before you jump on that last comment, take another looks at TJack's throws.
    Except for the final INT, he threw the ball extremely well.
    Rarely forced a play and threw tight spirals.
    The only negative on the plays were the number of drops by the TE's and WR's.

    Defense: C.
    Alternated 2 dominating plays with a pretty average play.
    Too many big runs, passes, blown coverages and 0 turnovers.
    Where was Jared Allen?

    Special Teams:
    D.
    Kluwe should be running wind sprints right about now to make up for that horrible line drive punt that was returned for the game deciding touchdown.


    Coaching:
    D.
    Horrendous play calling in the first half.
    7 passing plays with no intermediate game is inexcusable because it didn't worked.
    Time to find another phrase other than "we want to establish the run."
    No sh*t.
    New phrase should be, "we'd like to score a touchdown."

    Effort:
    B.
    Team played hard.
    Kudos to the O line, who without McKinnie, kept Jackson clean most the night.
    LB played fast and hard.
    Madieu might have made the difference.
    AP and Chester were monsters.


    Tough start.
    Some questionable no calls on the Packers secondary, a special teams TD, lack of turnovers, and a pretty incredible Rodgers TD pass...everything went right for the Pack and nothing went Minnesota's way.
    Hard to win, but enough to be encouraged.


    Must play better next week to beat Indy.
    Hopefully the coaching staff calls something other than bubble screens and hail marys next week...

    were you watching the same game I was?
    drops?
    I guess you expect every diving attempt to be a catch?
    should Mills really have to limbo to catch a frickin ball.
    I could give less than 2 shits if he threw a spiral or not, he needs to work on his accuracy.
    Period.
    There were throws that were sooo bad that Even I could have done better.
    No joke.
    some throws just left me asking "why the fuck did he just throw that?"
    those long bombs to berrian weren't even close to on target.

    Childres and the coaching staff, being 0-5 against the Pack, get an F. They were not as prepared as the Pack was. Its getting old.

    Offense C would be a D cept for AD.

    D gets a C...no pressure as usual

    ST C

    Re: Grading Vikings Week 1

    yeah, I watched the game.
    Where did you want the ball to Mills to be thrown?
    Did it hit him in the hands?
    The 2pt conversion pass was thrown behind Allison, agreed, but there were more balls thrown in places that big time players need to make catches.
    Let me be specific:
    Shiancoe's drop inside the 30 when he couldn't hold on after a hard hit was PERFECTLY thrown.
    Berrian dropped two.
    Granted I think there was some interference, but Bernard made NO great catches.
    If you're complaining about the screen passes or missed passes in the flats, I'd argue those were intentionally thrown low because the coaching staff has pounded into T's head not to turnover the ball.

    Tarvaris had two passess at the feet, one too Berrian which could have lead to a score and one to Thomas Topeh. On this specific one Tarvaris was dealing with great pressure on a rollout and tried to throw it around the defender, more of a throw away. He also threw one short to Shancoe as he was forced to throw because Anthony Herrera completly blew his blitz coverage pickup. In the end he really had one bad pass at the feet to Berrian the others were lack of protection and basically a pass forced before it was time.

    Exactly. That pass to Tapeh on the Play-Action was most definetly a throw away. He had a DE in his face.
