Packers have 43 points, 31 first downs and 524 total yards.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

Who knows how good the Vikings are but Rodgers has looked spectacular today.


I've wondered all off-season, with Rodgers only being 35 last season, and seeing what Brees/Brady have done in their late 30's...how much of Rodgers 2019 struggles were diminishing talent or just truly a new offensive scheme/system. Sure, the truth may still be in the middle somewhere, but I don't think he's done being in the top-5 elite QB in the game.


He'll be 37 this year, but I still take your point.

He did miss more big plays last year than he had at any other time in his career.

But I think he's still a top 5 QB. I'd just like to see if he can still come close to the level he's played at in the past. I think it's pretty encouraging that he's talked about better balance. He threw a lot of those off his back foot last year.

You simply can’t beat the Packers when Rodgers plays like this, you just can’t.



No doubt. Rodgers looks better than he has since that Collarbone injury.

He's getting the ball out quickly and he's as accurate as he's been in a while.

Meanwhile, the Bears are mounting a quasi epic comeback against the Lions.

And to think I said the Vikings would give up only 21. Even I overrated them.

This might be the most points a MN team has given up under Zimmer.

Close. 2nd most apparently. I certainly don't recall many teams putting 40 of them before.

I realize game flow dictates a lot, but not thrilled giving up 34+ to any team.

Way too early observation: defense looks like it’s going to hold this team back from being title contenders this year.

What is best in life? To crush the Cardinals and Cubs, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their fanboys.

We saw this late garbage defense so often last year and acted like it wasn't an issue -- until it became one.

I guess we are still doing handshakes and maskless meet and greets after games.

They've GOT to put in a call to Damon Harrison or someone like that this week. After week 1 you don't have to guarantee the contract the rest of the season. We needed another DL coming into this week and with Clark's status up in the air, we sure as hell need help on the DL right now.

Harrison should be available for a couple million.

DeAndre Swift drops an EASY TD for the Lions. Man that hurts.

They're all tested before the game. I don't know that it's that big of a deal.

Swift drops game winning TD. Like, easy TD. Victory for the Bears.

Both teams looked like junk.

The Vikings never possessed the ball in the 2nd half with a chance to take the lead.

I just remembered I drafted Rodgers in my fantasy league as my #2 QB behind Brees. That means Brees will have a stinker today. Hurry up and place your bets on Brady and the Bucs.


I didn’t pick Rodgers this year as my #2 as whenever I have him on my team he doesn’t play up to his standards... so you’re welcome everybody.
