    Re: OFFICIAL VIKES vs PACKERS THREAD

    Couldn't have went any better really. There is no reason to think we won't move to 5-0 next week.

    Favre is now 4th in Compleion %, 3rd in TDs and third in rating. He also is [size=11pt]27th[/size] in interceptions thrown.

    Most importantly ... 4-0.

    Just for shits and giggles ... on pace for 3,300 yards, 32 TDs and only 4 INTs ... T-Jack numbers pretty much right?

    Re: OFFICIAL VIKES vs PACKERS THREAD

    Sick game.
    As long as we get the W, thats all that matters

    having said that:

    Likes:
    Jared Allen...... no explanation necessary
    Pass blocking.... Awesome job.
    Favre only got hit a copule times, no sacks.
    great showing
    Favre.
    Efficient, but also took shots when they were there.
    Exactly the kind of game I could get used to.
    No turnovers... great game.
    Favre generates penalties... For once it doesn't seem like the refs hate us.
    no penalties.
    I don't recall a single one.

    Sidney Rice:
    Made some very nice catches.
    I believe he dropped one, but he was otherwise very good.
    Made some great important catches on those onside kicks too.

    Need to fix:
    Pass coverage.
    Just brutal at times.
    That first TD should NOT have happened, I'll have to go back and see who f-ed up, but I do believe that was TJ's side of the field.

    Run Blocking.
    Packers played Peterson well, seems the 49ers have taught teams how to keep him in check with a 3-4 D.


    Peterson.
    Not much was there, but instead of looking for the cutback that clearly isn't there, lower the shoulder, get low and dive for 4 yards up the middle.
    Oh, and hang on to the damn ball.

    The score was way closer than it should have been.
    We dominated them, only reason it was close was because o fmistakes.
    Fumble by peterson, mental lapses in the secondary.
    Rodgers should have thrown for 250 instead of 384.
    If not for a dropped pass in the endzone, the game could have been tied.

    Great game.
    4.5 sacks, safety and forced fumble for JA...not bad for a night's work.
    Favre wasn't too shabby for an old man.
    Guess he still has a little gas in the tank.

    AW, Kluwe, KW, Robison and Rice all had big games as well.
    Kind of felt sorry for Rodgers and his OL for a little bit, but then it passed.
    I also thought the LB corps had a solid game.
    Safety play was probably the weakest on both sides of the ball.

    One of the better packer games I've seen in a while.

    Sure the D should have ended the game sooner and sure AP sucked but

    [size=20pt]
    BRETT FAVRE[/size]

    Pass defense was horrible at the end of the game and we were not able to open up any running lanes for AP. Other than that great game

    Thanks Josdin

    I'm gonna cry. Haven't been this happy in a long time.

    I think the person that deserves the most credit is Brad Childress. People question bringing in a 40 year old QB and basically slapped Jackson and Rosenfeld in the face. People questioned getting rid of Bobby Wade for Greg Lewis.

    I still don't like his conservative nature, but I think we should start jumping off the Childress Hate Train. He is our Head Coach and I think it's time we started showing that loyalty, even when we lose.

    Nice to see Berrian make some noise this week!
    I was a loittle concerned with "All Day" after he had the ball ripped out of his hand!

    I wouldn't run to praise Childress yet, we had the opportunity to put them away in the third quarter, but the ultra-conservative Childress reared his ugly head.
    WHY? do we keep running stretch plays with peterson when they obviously don't work.
    Run up the gut for 3, or pass, both were working when they did it.

    We were a dropped pass away from being tied up.

    Question...

    Does Favre get credit for this win like last?
    DL?
