"Farve Not D's Focus"

Obviously.

Thanks Green Bay. You just showed to everyone on national T.V. that we are a two headed monster. Shut down AD and Farve will kill you with one on ones.

Me too. I hate people that make excuses. When things go wrong, losers make excuses. When things go wrong, winners strive to make things right. We'll see what kind of team, from management to coaches and players, the Packers are going to be. The Vikings played better than the Packers this time. Excuses and "ifs" won't help the Packers win the next Packer-Viking game. Playing better is the only thing that will help.

The Packers MUST focus on Adrian Peterson! Forget B.F. and the drama.Stop AP ( slow him down,he will get his yards) and make BF beat you throwing,and if the vikes win so be it,but,dont let AP win it.
If they can do that,i like the GBP chances of winning it,if AP runs wild,it could be a long day and either team falls behind by more then 10 it prob over,Minn will have to rely on BF to throw it alot,game over,,,,GB will have to throw and prob wont have someone in to block and help College block J.Allen,again Game over.
"If Favre has to throw it alot game over" I guess you were right again.

Vikes, that was actually a thought-out analysis from eric of what GB should do to try to win this game. It wasn't inflammatory or anything. What positive thing have you ever added to the debate? Do you even understand football well enough to add anything productive or do you just get off on sticking your tongue out at people in forums? Get a life and get football 101 so you can keep up with what's happening in here.

<quoted text> Please eric wake up, So if Brian Urlacher did'nt get hurt, we would have beat GB. Your o line sucks and has all season,and your D sucked too. I don't think i've ever seen a QB have that much time as Favre had last night. That was embarrassing for GB. Ar did'nt do shit to the Bears,watch the game again. Your in the same spot as last year..... 3rd place!
Packers lost to the Vikings straight up. I admit it. But you have no room to talk in here. Bears lost to the Packers straight up. Until that season record evens out, I'd stay out of Packer fans' faces. Cutler fell apart under tough pressure from GB D. We forced him into multiple mistakes and capitalized. Be careful what you say about that, or "If Urlacher wouldn't have gotten hurt ..." will be your slogan for the season.

Hey Douche bag, I mean Jeremy. The only pressure that Rodgers is getting would be from this media that you believe in so much oh yeah and the defensive lines he is up against every week. As for the normal pressures any NFL qb has, there is no difference between Rodgers and anyone else who was a back up for a few years. I think if you are making a comparison between the qb's that followed those legends....and Rodgers you are an idiot. Denver drafted Griese '98 and tossed him in the fire right away, smart move and not comparable to AR. Miami got Fielder from Jacksonville went 11-5 then started 2002 with a 5-1 record before an injury....what is wrong with that? Then there is Dallas....Qunicy Carter, come on. A college junior drafted in '01 and starting immediately. His first year was ok, they benched him the second year, then he brings them to a 10-6 record under Parcells and they axe him. Still I think AR has less pressure than any of those guys, and stop making excuses.
Right, Rodgers faced less pressure, with Favre trying to get back in and management keeping him out, with fans at training camp screaming "We love Brett" while he was playing. Griese didn't face anything close to that. Elway just quietly went away. You're letting your bias cloud your judgment.

Yeah, I am not sure if you noticed the last three vikes possesions? But besides the one long toss BF took downfield, it was basically all running plays eating time off the clock. So to try and make this game look closer than it did, Min leading by 16 just after the start of the 4th, is pretty funny. And do you really think AR is going to continue to put up these numbers averaging 5 sacks a game? How long will it be until an injury occurs? AR knows he is an effective QB and he will be deadly behind an oline that will protect him. But with TT at GM and MM running the show I don't see him in GB for a 10years. By the way I live don't live in Wisconsin. I am not sure why it says GB when I type a message.
Dude, it was a close game. It shouldn't have been, and an elite team would have driven the nail into the coffin on the Packers. But the Vikings couldn't do it. They're good, better than the Pack right now, but not elite.

People yelling "we love brett" and the management trying to keep favre out? Thats all you got? What about just being drafted and never being on a pro team? Not having a BF type qb to watch how he plays, reads defenses, studies the game for a few years. Being thrown right into the game after on off season of training camps. I would find this to be more of a pressure situation than what Rodgers went through last year, and is still going through. Like I already said, statistically AR has proven he can play with what pressure any experienced back should be able to do. I was just tired of everyone jumping back to this excuse of too much pressure. I am not sure how that would be considered clouded judgement from bias. Just stating the facts.

I don't think anyone said pressure was an excuse for anything with Rodgers. He hasn't buckled under the pressure. If anything, he's been widely praised for handling the pressure much more effectively than others in those situations have.

If that's what you're arguing, it's a non-issue.

Hey retard, that is what I was saying. The pressure excuse is null. The packers just blow when it comes down to crunch time pressure, Mrs. Rodgers included.

Nice, I offer a reason for my opinion. Yours is based on ... what, your own stupid homerism?

Elite teams put other teams away. And Sunday just further confirmed it. The Vikings should have twisted the dagger, but again they left the door open.

Again, I think the Vikes are very good and better than my team, but they need to figure out how to put teams away. They've got more talent than anyone. That's just me trying to actually offer analysis in this forum, but you may proceed with your "you're dumb" line of argument.

No, retard. You say,“The pressure excuse is null.” I say “Who the hell’s using the pressure excuse?” Who are you arguing with? Some elf on your shoulder?

That’s like me saying,“Your argument that the Vikings are liberals is irrelevant.” You never made that argument, so I WIN! Yeah! I’m going to go make up some more arguments to win, so I can be a winner like you!

You're irrelevant.

Previous post from Jeremy...AR has handled the most pressure on a QB in NFL history, period. The wins have yet to come, but the numbers were there last year. To ask a QB to follow in BF footsteps in GB is almost an impossible task, but AR has handled it very well and professionally, what more can you ask from him. Ask any GM in the NFL about Rodgers and they all rave about him. Don't start an AR argument, you'll lose every time. No, we are not at the level of the 49ers, but we have a D who is out for blood because of a certain #4.
This is what I was speaking of Double Douche. Numbers mean shit when you have a pathetic record, and saying that he has had the most pressure is a joke. Why don't you read the posts before you comment. Douche

Child,

EXCUSE FOR WHAT???? He's performing fine. No one's saying "He's doing bad because of pressure" because no one, except some blind Vikings nimrods, are saying he's playing poorly! What are you arguing???? EXCUSE FOR WHAT????

Our record isn't great, but NO ONE IS USING YOUR SUPPOSED ARGUMENT!

Yes, Rodgers faced pressure, but he's handled it fine. It's the "EXCUSE" part of your statement that shows the mental capacity of a particularly dense tree sloth. No one's using that as an excuse for anything.

Keep trying, dude. You'll find a relevant argument eventually.

thank you for stating the obvious - every viking fan knows they need to stop letting teams catch them when they have the lead but just because they arent beating team by 21 or more doesnt mean squat. In the NFL a win is a win... ask any coach how hard it is to get a win on any given sunday. The bears beat pittsburg - does that mean they are an elite team. i think not.. therefore, i dont think youre dumb just the comment you posted - now unbunch yer panties

The first time I responded was to someone saying "Karen Rodgers has had the most pressure of any NFL QB ever on him to do well. I know what his numbers are knob licker, all I said was that he had no more pressures than any other qb that was a back up for 3 years. NO PRESSURE, AND HAS DESCENT NUMBERS FOR A QB(understand what I am saying????) BUT yards and qb ratings mean shit, specially when it is crunch time and your team is relying on you to put it in the endzone, the he scampers out of the pocket like a little scared bunny and gets his 31st sack of the season on him. Yeah you are right GB has looked amazing this, that is against teams awful teams. hahahaha I predict 7-9 on the season.
