Jordy has unreal hands

October 27, 2013

I don’t think Jordy gets enough credit for having great hands. He makes some fantastic grabs – and that HUGE TD was a great demonstration of that. Of course, that pass couldn’t have been put anywhere else. Rodgers is tremendous (13/16 for 169 yards).

Great screen call there

Didn’t get a bunch of yards but the Vikes are so hyper right now that’s a great way to counter that.

Stupid play by Jones

What is he thinking? Can’t afford that kind of mistake in a game like this. Now Peterson can get right back to it.

Peterson is Vikes only hope

If they just keep giving it to him they have a chance. But if we come up with one stop and take a bigger lead than we have now, could spell trouble for Vikes.

Love the aggressiveness

by going for it on 4th down earlier. Smart play.

How deflating for Vikes

October 27, 2013

That is kind of what I thought would happen after that return. Great drive by the Pack and phenomenal throw/catch there by Rodgers/Jordy. Fun to watch. I’m not surprised we drove down there so easily. Solid plays by lots of guys.

Don’t let up the whole game.

Need a 1st down here

This is an important early third down.

Tough start

Great return there. Somehow though, I think that might work against Minnesota. If the Pack can have a solid drive here, the Pack and simply undo and then reverse the momentum.

McCarthy/Rodgers need to work Quarless in right away

October 24, 2013

I really hope Finley’s injury is not career ending. He is a valuable member of the team and the offense in particular. The match-up problems he causes helps to open up our offense probably more than most of us realize. But he is badly hurt and I think it’s safe to assume he will at least be out for the year. And that means Quarless, Bostik and Stonebrunner need to step up. (I won’t hold my breath for a Stonebrunner surprise – last week I counted one costly roughing the punter penalty and 2, yes 2 clear late hits that weren’t called. While I guess I appreciate the intensity, we don’t need a present-day Ken Stills especially now that that sort of stuff is usually penalized more than it used to be back in the day.)

I think in this game against Minnesota on Sunday, Rodgers and McCarthy should design a few plays specifically for Quarless to get him involved. (And maybe even for Bostik too.) There is a significant psychological factor (a sense of loss/diminished offensive capacity) at play when a team loses an elite player, and Finley was playing at close to an elite level. One way to counter that is by showing confidence in the replacements and getting them involved. I have never been too impressed with Quarless but sometimes when an opportunity like this presents itself, guys rise up. As this article mentions, this is his second chance at this for Quarless really – and I hope Quarless can do it this time.
