The O-line didn't thrill me. Too many hits on A-Rod tonight. Starks had to run hard for his yards. Else, by far best game of the year.
Oh Jared Allen. One of those guys you want on your team, but love to hate when he's on your rival's team. Wonder what Rodgers said to him walking off the field at half time? Something for #AskAaron perhaps
I don't know about him, but if I were a QB I would be as nice and complimentary as possible to the league's best pass rushers. Or really any pass rusher. Actually, really any defender.
Pretty sure it was some nice words between those two. I know from earlier interviews that Rodgers totally respects Allen and his way to play the game. If they were not on different rivals they would be best friends.
Okay, third quarter and Rodgers scrambles and goes up the middle. Allen tackles him for, like, a two yard game. In most situations the defensive lineman would at least land on top and dig in an elbow or a knee to make the quarterback remember the next time that they will be punished. Allen just pulls him down and makes sure he doesn't land on Rodgers. Thought that was really classy.
I loved seeing the obvious respect between the two, at half and after the game.
I can't help but like Jared Allen and Brian Urlacher, they're good for the game.
They said during the telecast, that Rodgers and Allen are golf buddies. And after his comments after the game (He hopes the Packers win the Super Bowl), I think he is the only Viking player I respect.
UGLY = Pass protection in the 1st half.
Where did you see that Allen quote?
BJ Raji should be in the "ugly" section.
Dude got pushed around like a rag doll all game.
Whatever, great win. Both D and O looked great on the whole.
10-0 is a fact.
Like last week I renew my protest of rating Aaron Rodgers w/ mere mortals.
I was not satisfied with Newhouse's play. The signature play was when Allen falls down (on his own) gets up, and goes to the middle of the field and makes the play. Newhouse is standing right over Allen the whole play. So easy to knock him back down as he tries to get up. And I get that Allen is going to get his, but if we were looking at this match up as a measuring stick for progress by Newhouse, I'd say, "not enough." To me, if Clifton is coming back for the play off run Newhouse has not convinced me that he deserves to keep the job, and Sherrod could very well win the job next summer.
Plus he could just "sit" on him while he is down, totally legal.
We will lose when we are out coached.
We will lose when an opposing teams finds some kryptonite.
What is this "lose" you speak of?
That was the dominating performance we've all been waiting for. If the pass rush shows up like that for the rest of the season, look out. It's going to get ugly.
Also, I can't BELIEVE Woodson dropped that pick-6.
Woodson couldn't either.
I know, he was licking his chops and looking downfield. He knew he had it.
Bad = MNF color-commentary guys. Jaws and Gruden can be insightful, but is it me, or are they just way over the top gushing over guys, not just ours, too much? If it were possible to have the radio sync'ed with the tv, I'd listen to Wayne and Larry, than the all-out love fest from Jaws and Gruden.
Gruden would be ok if he was synced up with the game. He has great descriptions of formations and plays, except that he usually ends with, but that's not what they did here. Sometimes I think he is watching a totally different game. The other two, I have no use for. Do they make a radio delay device we can hook up?
Allen is the Crazy MF'ing friend that everyone has. Great at parties, but way too annoying to deal with on a regular basis...
I agree. He drives me nuts.
Right on. He seems to have grown up some and maybe stopped binge drinking, but remember the guy was one drink away from a season long suspension.
Whoa, now. I'm here to tell you that binge drinking and growing up are definitely not mutually exclusive.
Ryan Grant should be in the ugly/horrific.... 0.8 yards a carry last night....
I am an idiot.
I apologize for all of my past posts.
I am an idiot.
haha. All is forgiven.
It's like after all this time you still haven't learned to trust TT, MM and Capers implicitly...
i am ashamed.
Where is Todd when you need him?
I really do miss Todd.
You know what one of the really cool things to watch was? On Sunday, I was watching Bears/Lions game and was marvelling at how hard hitting those defenses were--especially the Bears. I thought to myself, "Man, I wish the GP D would play like that".
And they did!
Loved seeing Flynn! Means we're up big, and ARodg isn't getting hit.
Also less alarmed to see Jarrett Bush on D. If Woodson would retire, I could see him taking that role. Shaky in coverage, but get INT and can blitz.
Uh, no. JB has transitioned out of his "53rd guy on the roster", "guy you love to hate" role into being a functional d back, and great special teamer. Still, I think we've seen all the development we'll see out of the guy.
