Having to win the game in spite of a poor supporting cast tends to do that to GB quarterbacks. I just wonder how long it will take for Packer fans to turn on Rodgers when he starts making bigger mistakes. Getting creamed a dozen times per game tends to make ANY good qb start to crumble under pressure. I don't think anyone would want to be Aaron Rodgers this year. He has an automatic beating on the way every week! Their O-line SUCKS!!!

If you ask me, lining up behind that line in the first place is a poor decision.

Rodgers only threw one pick, and it was just a really good play by one of the best corners in the league. I feel like he did as well as could be expected with the circumstances. 26-37, 384 yards, two TDs and a pick.

Let's not pretend like Favre has never made a bad pass before. He's forced more passes into double coverage than any other man to play the sport.

Best QB in the Metrodome tonight wore #12. But to state the obvious, the difference between #12 and #4 is not nearly as great as the difference between the two teams lined up across from each other.

A lot of our supposed "through-thick-or-thin" Packer Backers will now spend the next two weeks gnashing their teeth about the ineptitude of everything ('cept AR) Packers and once again demonstrate they don't deserve their reputation of being the loyal fans they think they are. Much the same as any other fans, Vikings fans included.

But, come November 1, a Packer win will likely move them to 5 - 2 and could likely drop the Vikes to 5 - 3 after their upcoming games against Baltimore and Pittsburgh. The results of that weekend could also find the Bears anywhere from 6 -1 to 4 -3. After that, the Vikings appear to have the easier record but there is a lot left to be determined in this Division.

Rodgers also had a pretty bad fumble, and with a few of those sacks, he could have gotten rid of the ball, yes his O line is terrible, but a few of those sacks could have been avoided.

Everyone is just saying OMG 8 SACKS and he had a good rating! His turnovers led the 14 points, he held onto the ball a long time and a lot of his passing yards were after the catch. I disagree with the consensus here, I think # 4 outplayed Rodgers last night.

Again, his O Line is terrible, but Rodgers #s are misleading for those of you acting like he played the perfect game. imo

The fact is that if the O line problems can't be fixed, the Packers are in for a long season and Rogers will probably end up injured. Lets hope that the 8 sacks sends a message to the coaching staff to make some major changes pronto.

Lets not forget the pick Favre threw in the end zone except the ref called a pass interference penalty that was clearly wrong.

Also the late hit pentaly???

Just makes you think.

There was also a Packer lined up in the neutral zone for that snap, but it still made for a bad pass Favre got away with. It's happened many times before.

He did? What years? Were Edgar Bennett, Dorsey Levens or Ahman Green "sh%tty?" Really? Not that you'd confuse any of them with Barry Sanders but you've got more than a half-dozen 1,000-yard rushing seasons between the three. And give me Frank Winters, Adam Timmerman, Earl Dotson, Marco Rivera, Ross Verba etc. over these ham-n-eggers on the current Pack O-line any day of the week.

Oh yeah, that was the play that they also called the Packers for being offsides. I remember that, what about it?

All I can say is that The Packer's should have kept Favre and Teddy T and Mike McCarthy are the reason I am no longer a Packer fan! If they would have kept Favre and got Moss I probably would have stayed a fan but when a team has it's fan's bend over and take it....well take that Teddy T you should have kept Favre!!!!
