Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings:
My unfitered game day running blog post of comments, observations and first impressions.
Inactive for Packers today: WR Jarrett Boykin; CB Davon House; RB James Starks;LB Frank Zombo; WR Donald Driver; DT Jordan Miller; DE Jerel Worthy
It’s come to this: inactive for a home playoff game. Gotta feel bad for Donald Driver…
Vikings throw a monkey wrench into the Packers defensive game plan – Christian Ponder inactive.
Packers are 2-4 in their last six home playoff games. In all six of those game, the opposing team scored on their first possession.
16 of the last 21 Packers – Vikings games have been decided by seven points or less.
Ponder: Joe Webb – very athletic QB. Had some time to look at him during the week, even today as it became more apparent he will play.
back-to -back same opponent: In a lot ways, we feel we’ve had 2 weeks to prepare for this game. QB change is an adjustment for our defense.
Stopping AP: Good solid run defense. It’s about us. We’re at home, it’s about the mission we have before us.
Scheme: Run defense is not a one man deal. If you watch our DL line play, they played very well, but it takes a lot more than that. Everybody has to tackle, and they will tonight
Ross: Both Cobb and Ross will get some work in the return game tonight
Offensive Strategy: We don’t want to be one dimensional. We’re not going to come in here and throw the ball 50 times. That’s not in the best interest of our football team.
Dujuan Harris: He’s going to start tonight as far as getting the first carty and then we’ll see how it goes. it’s all about riding the hot hand.
Special teams coverage: We had one or two individuals who just didn’t do their job properly. I’m confident our play on special teams will be better tonight
