    Excellent post..

    One thing people are forgetting...The Vikings werent losing by much..In fact they were winning in a few of those games..And that was with Mcnabb

    I have said it a few times already..Packers fans better not take any team for granted...Every week they will get the opponents A game and want to beat them..

    Now teams are thinking about it even more now that the Packers are undefeated..It will get worse every week that they dont lose

    I agree. The vikes are a very dangerous team. Packers should not be favored by 13.

    But what sets Rodgers apart from other "preparers" is his on field awareness and accurate snap judgment. McCarthy himself said he hasn't seen anyone like this since he coached Joe Montana. Can the same be said for Ponder? Only time will tell I guess.

    I wouldn't favor the Pack by 13 beforehand in this one either; although they should have won the last one by 30. If the defense doesn't get caught flat-footed by the 70 yd. pass play on the game's first play, if Cobb doesn't fumble a punt at midfield and later drop a td pass in his hands the Vikes probably lose 14 pts and the Packers gain at least another 14 on the final point total.

    The Packers played only one good quarter of football the last time at the Metrodome, when they scored 20 in the third quarter. The rest of the time they sparred around and let Minnesota hang around. But with the game on the line at the end they rammed it down the Queens' throats with a dominating rushing performance.

    The Packers are undefeated but hardly perfect. There's plenty of things in the house to clean up so maybe that helps avoid complacency and overconfidence at Lombardi Avenue. The last 3 games have been ragged so maybe this is one where the team is determined to play a complete and dominating game. Would love to see another 34-0 kind of game against this rival like at Lambeau in '07.

    I've got a bad gut feeling too. Everytime I've had it, it's been a rough game. I hope it's gone by Monday or else it's gonna be a looooooong day at work.
    Based on the players' tweets, they seem very prepared. I hope they're right.

    I feel pretty good about the game. Peterson is going to be an issue, regardless but the Packers have got to get to Ponder.

    He could play but I dont expect it. Might save him for the Lions game when we need him.

    All the drama with Brent, A-Rod, McNabb and Ponder.
    The rivalry.
    We got the makings for a Mid-States Story going on here.
    Auditions start next weekend.

    When your a Brett your a Brett
    From your first cell text to your last intercept
    Then you are set
    With a capital B
    Which you'll never forget
    When you retire finally
    (West Side Story rawks, btw.)

    Even though I wish, really, really wish that it would have been 3-1 for the Pack, I'll still take 2-2.
    And why not a bunch of more boos for BrINT?

    If, if, if. If Woodson didn't have two interceptions, if the Vikings hadn't blown coverage on one play the Packer scored a touchdown on, the game would have ended different as well. Remember, the "ifs" work for both teams.

    That is a VERY high compliment made by McCarthy. Joe Montana was a true student of the game as is Rodgers. Back in the 80's it was Montana, Marino and Elway (Fouts). 90's it was Elway, Favre and Aikman (Young). Now it is Manning (injured or not), Brady and Rodgers (Favre). Ponder has the work ethic, physical skills, intelligence, and understanding of the game to succeed in the NFL. Once he is seasoned, I'm thinking he will be more like Drew Brees than Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers, right now, is truly in a class all by himself. Your Packers are so lucky to have had two great QB's in a row. Poor teams like the Dolphins and Redskins just can't seem to get their engine started as it were.

    I'm just excited to see two rivals play on the national stage this Monday night!
