Packers XLV

Packers Apply Nails Into Coffin that is Vikings Season

Posted November 21st, 2010 @ 10:11pm

In 16 years of attending Packers-Vikings games at the Metrodome, it's never felt sweeter than this. It's never felt more satisfying than on this Sunday, when the Packers emphatically ended the Vikings' season and most likely, the misguided Brett Favre era in Minnesota.

Once again, the Packers' defense rose up and dominated. They've allowed just one touchdown in the last three games and once again used turnovers to turn the game around. The Tramon Williams interception was a game-changer. Favre and the Vikings were driving late in the first half of a 10-3 game when Williams got the pick. Rodgers took the Pack down the field and punched it in right before halftime to make it 17-3 and cause Vikings fans to head to the beer line to drown their sorrows.

When the Packers came out and scored to start the third quarter it was 24-3, and for all intents and purposes, there was your "dagger." The Vikings had no life left and no chance in passing mode against the Pack's pass rush. For the rest of the day, we Packer fans at the Dome enjoyed belting out "Go Pack Go" while on defense, causing Vikes fans to boo and raise the decibel level in the dome while Favre and the offense tried to run their offense. Speaking of which, I love the fact that Green Bay won the toss and deferred. I love putting that defense on the field first and taking the ball to start the second half.

Once again, Mike McCarthy and the coaching staff had the team ready coming out of the bye. It took the offense a few series to find their rhythm, but the 17 point second quarter was a thing of beauty--Rodgers and the passing game was razor sharp. McCarthy is now 4-1 in games following the bye and in division games he's 20-8.

At 7-3, the Packers are rolling, winners of four straight, with a tough test in Atlanta next Sunday.  As for the Vikings, they can start thinking about 2011, if there is a 2011. And if there is, they may decide to find out beginning next week whether Tavaris Jackson is their guy.

if you would have stuck with me we probably would have won anteohr Super Bowl. Really, Brent?Favre's talent is undeniable and he is largely responsible for bringing this organization out of a rather miserable two decade plus rut. However, that era is now over and unfortunately we are left with an extremely sour taste in our mouths. While Favre has continued to make all the wrong moves, Rodgers has made all the right ones. He was treated horribly by Favre yet never complained and to this day hasn't shown any bitterness towards Favre. Not to mention, Aaron just won a Super Bowl/MVP.Favre needs to just shut up. We have our guy, A-Rodg, and I wouldn't trade him for any other QB in or out of the league.

When should Rodgers have won it brett? Should he have been pliyang the giants in the NFCCG before you toss a win(pick) to the Giants at the end of the game? .Should he have won it in 08 against Arizona when the defense gave up over 50 to the birds? .Should he have won it in 09 when he was sacked for 50 times? ..Truth is, Favre fell into a good situation pliyang with the #1 defense in 96. For a guy who tossed 6 picks in 1 playoff game. Threw 2 picks at the end of 2 NFCCG's he sure talks pretty arrogant. Lets not forget the 04 pick against the eagles at the end of the game giving the Eagles a win .Favre's best years were 94-98. After that, his playoff record is horrible. 1 S B in 20 years Brett just stfu.

I read the transcript two days ago when it first came out. I am stneund, STUNNED, that they are trying to make a story out of this. No one who originally heard or read the interview would have come to the conlcusions these pencil-necked weasels and flabby pile-of-shit bloggers are trying to foist on us. How does I'm suprised he didn't win it sooner get translated into a negative? They should send Favre thankyou letters for bringing traffic to their sites.

I give brett a lot of credit there He didnt show Golden Eagles Nation his dick. I kind of execetpd not to see that but with that little smirk on his face in the picture from the telecast on the top of the page, you know he's thinking I wonder how many of these people watching wanna see my dick? Yeah probably all of them I'm Brett fuckin Favre!

To all of you Bernt Fart dick suckers, he didn't bring this frhicanse back from our doldrums. Ron Fucking Wolf did it. Without the rest of the players around him Bernt wouldn't have had the success he did.Also, he enjoyed the love of the greatest fanbase in professional sports and he took a shit on it.Remember we had Brunell and Hasselbeck and others behind his highness. It was never all about that dickhead. He was never once bigger than the frhicanse, he just didn't know it because you petty fucks kept licking his bunghole and still do today.

You'd think he could recognize what a putz he sodnus like running off at the mouth like that !!! He's jealous , and an attention whore !!! He'll never be as classy as Rodgers ! Rodgers is twice the Man Favre could even hope to be ! Keep digging your hole deeper Favre !!!!!

I could do that interview right now.Q: What do you think about TT's dseicion to let C. Jenkins go?A: Well, that is the business side of football, and I don't get involved with that. Cullen was a good football player and we'll miss him, but I think we'll be happy with Mike Neal, CJ Wilson and Jarius Wynn. I expect a lot out of those guys this year.There you go.As far as why J Campen is still the OL coach? Because he just won the Super Bowl. Any other questions?

think, the Packers might have helped tleesehvms more than they knew by sending the final blow to Childress’ career. They have scratched the Vikings’ back, and it’s time for them to return the

DD. Really?! You worship Brent Favre that much! You had to sink to Jr. High humor. I think you fzasitine about A Rod, why else would you make such a comment. Too bad for you, he's into primo hot chicks that regular dudes will never get. Sorry DD Dick Dangler

I have never been more happy to be a Packer fan living in the T.C. Atlanta looks to be a challenge. I hope we can keep rolling. Joan

Congrats to all us Packer fans!

Davy....I echo your comments on how sweet it is !! Represent all of us Twin City Packer fans by smack talking PA on KFAN Monday morning in your call in. They trash talked us last year. No turnovers, no key penalties, Rodgers play, great team defensive effort. The tone was set early when Favre was hurried and hit numerous times and put on his back. Tough road games upcoming so lets not get too ahead of ourselves. GO Pack GO !!

I have to say I was miffed they deferred the coin toss knowing Mike prefers a fast start but after the td at the end of the half, they clearly had a chance to put the game away and did. Mike did a nice job early of running right then went all out with the air assault and the rest was history. The Go Pack Go cheers in the dome were priceless!

A sweep of your archrival is a sweet thing Dave-ay. Although we looked offensively hungover from the Bye in the first quarter, the defensive tone was set early on by holding the purple to three points. Nice to see the pressure, hurries and knock downs on 4 and it was only a matter of time before he threw the first INT. Given the year Peterson has had, our D did a great job of containing him and taking him out of the game in the second half when the Gunslinger started firing blanks. Woodson had a nice game and the his locker room speech covered by FOX really shows his leadership. Williams interception clearly turned the tide and it looked to me that our defensive secondary was lying back just challenging 4 to throw...expecting to make a play on the ball. Rodgers had a great game! Let's not forget he ripped a page from Favre's book by taking the Packers with 1 minute left in the first half, down the field for the score. This is clutch people! Let's not forget the tough road ahead...including Chicago. Go Pack.

ODE TO BRETT FAVRE It was many nights before Christmas and all thru this inflatible bag they call the Viking House, Many fans were stirring, even the one they call the Chilly mouse, You went back to pass as so many times in the past, And all you could see was Claymaker, Woodson, and Jenkins and hope it was not your last, As you looked up into the box and saw the man they call Ziggy, He the one who sent the three wise men to beg you to play for his team in a jiffy, So as you fade off to sell more Wrangler jeans, You must be wandering oh why did I come back to play for these ViQueens?, As you hand the reins to a guy they call TJack, Please do not contemplate another comeback, We thank you for your many great games as a Green Bay Packer, For you will always be remembered as never playing as a slacker.

It was kind of funny to hear Jared Allen talk about the game in Green Bay that they could(should) have won. Well the better teams win those games. There was very little doubt easrly on as to whom owned this game. Being a season ticket holder in GB makes this that much sweeter. Great take Siny.

on November 22nd, 2010 at 09:21am

Dave, Good take on the game! It was great to put a " Dagger" in the Vikes season, Favres career and Chilly's tenure as coach. What a 3 punch knockout! Pack is rolling and gaining more momentum each week. Atlanta here we come!

on November 22nd, 2010 at 10:45am

Great to see Rogers' Quarterback Rating, head to head against "#4" yesterday, to be 90 points higher for the game! That said, I would like to see Bret get better every week from here on out, so he can lead the Purple to a defeat of the Bears on Dec. 20 (just in case).
