Let me start with saying, “Hell yeah” With this win and the Lions losing the Packers are now on top Morgan Burnettof the NFC North once again, A spot they have not owned solo since the Bears game of 2013, Now they control their own destiny.
I knew this was going to be a tough game as all division games usually are, It doesn’t matter what their records say, The teams know each other so well from having to play twice a year every year it is always tough to get these wins.

Teddy Bridgewater made quite a few throws that just missed their mark, plus, I saw at least eight passes his receivers dropped that would have been big plays, If they make those plays and Teddy makes better tosses the outcome of this game could have been different. With that said, The secondary played very poorly in this game and will need to play a lot better next week because Brady will not miss his marks if given time to throw he has Gronk back now who is having a great year so far.
Now let me rant a little about the penalties, I believe the ref’s were pro Vikings this game it seemed they called everything they could see on the Packers but turned a blind eye when it came to PI calls on the Vikings!  There were at least three pass interference plays I saw that should have been called, McCarthy even about jumped out of his shoes screaming that Jordy was fouled on one play 🙂
But the ref’s did not miss much when the Pack played physical, they had two big plays called back for holding and one for a block in the back which really hurt the Packers getting into their rhythm.  I sure hope they don’t draw this crew for next week because these ref’s should not have jobs in the NFL.
Eddy Lacy brings the thunder.

Eddy Lacy brings the thunder.

Okay back to raving, How about the hammer? Eddie Lacy was a beast this game running for 125 yards with 25 carries and 2 TD’s, One was a shuffle pass from Rodgers but Lacy did what he does best, He lowered his shoulders and turned up field and barreled 12 yards on his way into the end zone.

Finally we have to say “Rodgers” to Rodgers on a one yard TD pass that probably actually went 20 yards in the air lol, “Rogers That”
Let me close out by saying it’s these type of games that build character in a team, They fought through adversity and came out winners, I know as a fan I was glued to the TV.
Go Pack!
Jeff

    I did not call you crazy, but must admit that I had my doubts. 🙂

    Kudos to McCarthy for going back to what has been his formula for success on offense in the past.

    I apologize to you and my Packers for thinking their problems on offense were too much to overcome in a single week. But sure glad I was proven wrong, again. 🙂

    in 2010 the packers were 9-7 and still went ahead and won the Super Bowl … Don’t count them out

    I agree Brady to a certain extent but I do not think RELAXING as Rodgers says will do the job. Yes we as fans can relax but this team had better to get very INTENSE this game and get back to smash mouth football or they could be in trouble in the NFC NOrth chase IMO. Aaron really needs to start trusting all his weapons and not only Nelson also! He has not even tried Rodgers in three games! Well maybe once or twice but you see where I am coming from, Rodgers is a catching TE so get him the ball in the flat and let him do his thing. Lacy is having trouble getting through the front 4 or 5 guys so why not fake a hand off get him through the front four then screen it off to him? So what if the have seven in the back at least he is past the front four or five and can get small chunks of yards that way. They did this fairly well in preseason but have yet to see them try in three games now! Bottom line is if McCarthy does not switch his play calling up a little bit to get the defenses off balance then it is not going to go well for this offense this year! Mike has not changed the way he calls a game in four years so other teams has figured him out!

      Right on Jeff! We haven’t used the tight ends enough. The Bears are vulnerable to a catching tight end so time for Rodgers to get a shot. Let’s use the guys we drafted for cryin’ out loud.
