Packers vs. Vikings – Unfiltered Game Day Commentary and First Impressions: Green Bay 45, Minnesota 7
Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings.
It looks like the wind is picking up at Lambeau and…….wait a minute! Kyle Cousineau just appeared on ESPN. That was cool.
Minnesotans are surprisingly optimistic about their team’s chances against the Packers tonight. Christian Ponder has given this fanbase some hope and the Vikings have shown signs of life since the rookie from Florida State took over as the starter. We’re about to find out if that optimism is warranted.
No surprises on the Packers inactive list: CB Davon House, LB Jamari Lattimore, LB Robert Francois, LB Frank Zombo, OL Ray Dominguez, LT Chad Clifton, DE Mike Neal.
Packers win the toss, defer to the second half, and force the Vikings to go three-and-out. This is just what the defense needed.
Who needs the NBA when you have Randall Cobb taking a punt to the house, then shooting a jump shot toward the referee. Cobb is becoming the Packers version of Percy Harvin.
So far Matthews has lined up only on his usual left side. It won’t matter much where he lines up if the Vikings keep trying to block him with Toby Gerhart.
Vikings punt again and we go to commercial with Megadeth playing in the background. Props to Monday Night Football for playing some metal this season. I’ve also heard Pantera and Lamb of God in previous games.
Asher Allen is wondering how Driver — a guy twice his age — just out-jumped him on that 3rd-down conversion.
