    Studs:

    Aaron Rodgers : 24-30, 300+ yards and 3 TDs with 0 INTs.

    Greg Jennings: Another 100+ yard game with a TD and some great catches

    Charles Woodson: 2 INTs, quite a few break-ups, even a pressure or two I believe

    Clay Matthews: 7 Tackles I think? 1 awesome sack, a deflected pass, quite a few knock down and pressures. Roughing the passer? My left nut! That was a clean play! Keep doing what ya do, Clay!

    Mason Crosby: Stay automatic my friend! His 4 field goals really made the difference.

    Duds:

    Randall Cobb: Another key dropped pass. Yes, he had a great return so maybe he should be in between stud and dud? You make the call.

    Packers Defense: Besides Woodson and Clay, we really gave up quite a few passes that really hurt us. AP ran all over us. The Bears held him to well under 100 yards, we should have done better.

    Anyone else? Please comment and leave your own nominees!

    I agree, Starks did great! 75 yards rushing, and a few BIG ones when we really needed them! Just sad we didn't score in the 4th. Happy has hell that we won!

    Yeah, I would put Starks into the Studs Category. Those two 1st down runs at the end of the game were fantastic.

    I would put Walden in the Dud category but even he knows he shouldn't be playing as much as he does. This needs to be addressed as he is a liability in both run and pass defense. His only value is as a pass rusher.

    I don't want to knock the D too much for letting AP run so much, but i can see the argument as a dud. Cobb is a Dud, that fair catch fail and the dropped pass marks him as DUD.

    He's making a trip to best buy for the receivers and Rodgers for breaking his streak.

    Duds - except for Woodson the secondary allowed a lot of free space early in the game.

    Stud - Starks in the fourth quarter when it counted.

    I should also put the officials on the Duds list because they didn't eject the guy that kicked lang in the nuts. He clearly saw it as he threw the flag but that should be an ejection.

    I was thinking that when it happened, make the rookie pay.:mad: It was just too easy to get angry at him.

    Oh and teh Packer that downed the ball inside the 5 deserves the title of stud.

    I've been tempted to rag on MM's play calling many times, but the fact is it has gotten us to 7-0. After just getting us a Super Bowl... When it loses us a game, then we can yell at him.

    And... He also came out and took some shots, which went incomplete, and gave the Vikings the ball back quickly. If the Packers had executed on rushing plays in the 3rd and 4th quarter like they did in the last 3 minutes, the game never would have gotten so close at the end.

    The pass D in total was a dud, I would even put woodson in the mixed bag, he gave up a lot of big completions late that would have sealed the game. Seemed to me he was getting greedy and looking for that 3rd pick. The 2 picks were the key to the victory though.
