Packers post game
Well the good news is we didn't lose.
The bad news is we blew a 16 pt lead in the 4th quarter.
The good news is we kept the packers from being in a tie for first place in the North.
The bad news is it doesn't matter to us what the rest of the North is doing.
Why did we throw a screen the last play of over time instead of heaving it down the field and maybe hoping for a pass interference giving us a chance to win? I just don't get the play calling.
The interesting thing this week is no one in the NFC north won this weekend.

I thought we played a pretty good game. Refs gave them a touchdown with that long pass interference call that should have been offensive pass interference against the Packers. Also that bull#$#t holding call when we stopped them on third a nine. I am just glad we didn't cave completely. AP and Toby ran well. O line showed up. D played more aggressive. Receivers gave it hell. Even Ponder gave a decent showing until disappearing towards the end. No win but I still love the Vikings.

AP had a good game. Gerhart also, surprisingly, had a great game as well. Even Ponder started 15 of 18 for 181 yards. But then, at critical moments in the game the whole team, collectively, blew a 16 point lead. Missed open receivers (Ponder to Patterson), dropped passes (Patterson, Jennings), and a late game defense that decided to go soft. Top that off with the typical bad play calling. I'm stating the obvious here. Every one of you saw it too. It was a heartbreaking tie, only slightly less worse than a loss. I made the mistake, like usual, of actually thinking we we're going to win.
The way the momentum was going I think it was an absolute miracle we didn't lose in the OT.
