Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings:
My unfitered game day running blog post of comments, observations and first impressions.
Inactive for Packers today: CB Charles Woodson, RB Johnny White, CB Sam Shields, LB Clay Matthews, LB Terrell Manning, WR Donald Driver, DL CJ Wilson
Inactive for Vikings today: WR Percy Harvin, QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson, CB Brandon Burton, LB Audie Cole, G Mark Asper, TE Allen Reisner, DE D’Aundre Reed.
Greg Jennings returns to the field for the first time in 8 games.
Today’s captains are Josh Sitton, BJ Raji and Jarrett Bush
First of three straight NFC North games for the Packers; currently they’ve won nine straight games against division opponents.
Noon game at home: A great day for football…
Control destiny: Any week you line up and have the ability to achieve your goals you set for the year, it’s a great thing.
Loss a motivator: No doubt, any time you take a shot like we did, it’s an opportunity. Like Paul’s 2nd letter to the Corinthians. I’m glad of weaknesses, for when I am weak I am strong.
Jennings: Will have to work him in the flow. Decision was made medically – we’re going to be smart with him. We’re taking him more as a situational and we’ll evaluate more at halftime.
Peterson: What he’s been able to accomplish is a credit to his work ethic, his genetics, the medical staff at Minnesota.
Ponder: He has big play ability. Athletic – can make plays in and out of the pocket. Very good player with his feet.
Minny pass rush: It’s a key matchup today. We have to establish ourselves in the run and the play action.
OLine: You gotta play football. It’s starts with running the football, off of that play action. Sometimes guys have to win one on ones.
Packers vs. Vikings – First Impressions – First Half:
Vikings win the toss and defer. Unusual for Packers to start the game on offense this year.
Packers showing a good amout of three-wide on the first series – Jennings is not in.
James Jones: ball thief…
Packers favorite play is without a doubt the free play…
