    Official Post Game Thought, Observations, and Rants

    *Sigh* another loss to the Packers.

    There were times when I was watching this knowing that we could tie or go ahead at any time in the game…we were so close!
    We just cannot get that certain play to get us going!
    This could’ve been 10x worse had the Pack held onto all of Holcomb’s passes he threw to them.


    It’s very sad when we put together a good drive and end up kicking a darn field goal.
    We get the pass to Shiancoe 15 yard pass, then Chester for a sweet 37 yard gain.
    Then the “Vikings” take over a week get KGB stripping the ball and we end up with 3.

    On the Defensive side we hold them on a drive only to have their fricken punter gouge us for a first down.
    Terrible pursuit by Special Teams, just terrible as they looked like the 11 Stooges.
    The Pack made the plays when it counted, we did not.

    Where the hell was the crowd?
    After the half we were only down by 4 and you could here a fricken pin drop in the Dome.
    What a shame to have home field disadvantage.

    Holcomb was not sacked a lot, but he sure was under pressure quite a few times.
    I am glad that we did attempt the deep ball.
    As you can see we are not a deep ball team.
    We have guys who cannot finish the play and haul it in and we have QB’s that cannot hit that guy at times.

    I am not going to concede that we dominated their run game.
    They simply chose not to run the ball because we do have a good run Defense.
    Then we get Moracy to fumble, but the dang ball goes out of bounds; just our luck.

    Ultra’s Salutes:
    Greenway:
    had a solid game.
    Gave us hope in the end!
    Winfield:
    did not get toasted.
    Came up with some nice tackles and had a sweet hit!
    Robison:
    liked the attitude and intensity he played with.
    Peterson:
    had another good game capped by a huge run and another that almost went big.
    He also looked great on returns too.
    He will do well there this year and should help give our Offense some yards so we can punt the ball or kick a FG.
    Taylor:
    the numbers are not there, but we saw shades of CT’s drive on his 37 yard run.
    Kluwe:
    did a good job of dropping it inside the 20.
    Longwell:
    hit them when we needed it.
    Run D:
    although their game plan was to pass, they did a great job vs. the run.
    Team:
    did not have as many penalties as we would’ve expected
    Wade:
    I like this kid.
    Had a nice catch and run for 40 yards.
    Rice:
    Caught the first TD in 20 posessions, that's worth a salute
    WHOEVER TOOK MCKINNIE OUT OF THE GAME!
    GOOD CALL!


    Ultra’s Thumbs Down:
    Pass Rush:
    looked ok at times, but with Brett getting near 70% completions it has got to be there more often.
    O-Line:
    Holcomb was under pressure way too much…again!
    Griffin:
    looks lost again.
    Did have a good defended ball in the 3rd.
    ST:
    way to give-up a first down to a Punter.
    Hang your heads fellas.
    Coaching:
    out coached and play calling ineptitude.
    Holcomb:
    could’ve been so much worse had the Pack held onto the balls.
    Missed open WR’s when we needed a big play.
    Crowd:
    out of the game even though we were not.
    Pass D:
    gave them all they needed.
    Pathetic!
    McKinnie:
    can this guy pass block or what?
    He blows!

    Well, I think we should get used to this type of play for the rest of the season.
    I think we are a 4-6 win team and there will not be any easy victories ahead.
    At the end of the season we will be looking for a new QB via the draft of FA.
    Childress will be gone and that painful 2 year chapter of mediocrity.

    Our play makers need to be on the field more. Simple as that.

    Someone please make me understand how your go to man, adrian peterson, can put up 12 carries for 112 yards most of which coming in the first half and then basically be put on ST and not touch the ball more than a couple more times in the second half... i understand we were down and were tryen to come back, but holcomb is dreadful and it just was not happening for us.. why not give the ball to our amazing RB and atleast let him get his 20 carries n see what happens... pitiful childress

    I think our pass defense played pretty damn well, considering Favre threw it 50 times.
    They held them to ONE touchdown until they essentially collapsed from exhaustion in the fourth quarter.
    They stopped them quite a few time.
    When a team plays as badly as we did on offense and is STILL in the game, the defense isn't the problem.

    Can we please get go after a QB with an arm and some experience? It also wouldn't hurt to get a call or a freaking holding on GB. We couldn't get any pressure because the refs wouldn't call a single hold on the Packer's O line.

    I'm not nearly as negative as that we did have plenty of offensive flashes during that game between both RBs, Rice, Shiancoe, and Wade to be as negative as I assume some of you will be I'll just see if when we put Tarvaris back in after the bye week if we can get these flashes to sustain over a full game it can get better.
