49ers-Vikings one-liners

Receivers coach Greg Stewart decided to insert WR Greg Lewis on the decisive play of the 27-24 win because WR Percy Harvin was worn out — and because coach Brad Childress had told Stewart not to be afraid to use him.

Though it wasn’t as bad as his three yards on 14 carries from 2007 against the Niners, RB Adrian Peterson was limited to 85 yards on 19 attempts and no touchdowns.

Said QB Brett Favre of a downfield block he applied to San Fran LB Patrick Willis as WR Bernard Berrian tried to get more yardage:  “I thought maybe I could spring him.  Maybe get on SportsCenter.”

Vikings G Steve Hutchinson and T Phil Loadholt each took the blame for a blocked field goal just before the half, which turned what would have been a 16-7 lead into a 14-13 deficit.

Ray Ratto of CBSSports.com thinks Favre’s heroics are temporary.

How close did 49ers DE Manny Lawson come to hitting Favre before the ball was out on the fateful 32-yard touchdown pass?  Not close enough,” Lawson said.  “But close enough to know I’ll be thinking about that play for a while.”

Niners TE Vernon Davis found the soft spot in the Cover 2 defense for 96 yards and two touchdowns.

49ers RB Glen Coffee wasn’t happy with his 25-carry, 54-yard performance in place of Frank Gore.

QB Shaun Hill, who started his career in Minnesota, completed 15 of 25 passes for 195 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception.

Coach Mike Singletary was positive after the loss — and he let his players who didn’t share that feeling hear it:  “I don’t want to see you looking at the floor!” Singletary was heard saying to the players after the game.  “You
didn’t steal nothing!  You didn’t do anything wrong!  We will see them
again!  In the playoffs!  Hold your heads up!  Don’t you look down at the
floor for nobody!  You have nothing to be looking down at the floor
about!  Pick your heads up, put your shoulders back and let’s rock!”

    Ray Ratto thinks Favre’s heroics are temporary? You mean he won’t be performing them 100 years from now? No shit, Sherlock. This kind of BS is exactly what is wrong with our entire society. We can’t just enjoy a pretty amazing moment. No, the second it is over, all the “geniuses” have to show how edgy and smart they are by predicting how we’re all due for a big downfall. Just admit it was a great play and STFU already…

  2. GregO says: Sep 28, 2009 12:37 AM

    If Mike Singletary gave me the call I would suit up just to be a tackling dummy.
    Dude is awesome.

  3. mr coconut says: Sep 28, 2009 12:48 AM

    I didn’t hear Ratto’s comments, but it doesn’t take sherlock holmes to decipher his message. The Favre fade is not a pass. Why would this year be different?

  4. FumbleNuts says: Sep 28, 2009 1:00 AM

    Coach Mike Singletary will keep his troops moving forward and winning games.

  5. painday says: Sep 28, 2009 1:10 AM

    i hate bret favre. he has knocked the niners out of the playoffs 5 times. now this shit . great pass old nemisis. az lost as did the hawks and the god awful rams. 49 ers kill rams next week, guaranteed. and also cover a7 pt spread. physical domination at the stick next sunday. singletary will have them fired up and ready.

  6. FastEddy415 says: Sep 28, 2009 1:20 AM

    Yes it was a great play and a good win. Ratto only points at recent history regarding Favre. He comes out gun slinging only to fade as the season progresses. Jets had a great first half last season only to fade during the second half. Why? Favre played poorly.
    Vikings better hope history dont repeat itself.

  7. gopherb24 says: Sep 28, 2009 1:52 AM

    Singletary was nice enough to predict that the Vikings will make the playoffs. Thanks, Mike.

  8. steeler-hater says: Sep 28, 2009 2:32 AM

    I was hoping the Vikes would lose.
    Can’t stand Brett Favre anymore. Wish he’d retire already…

  9. mnmaverick says: Sep 28, 2009 4:37 AM

    It was a fortunate play.
    I am surprised that Singletary kept his pants on this time around though.

  10. Wonderlic--myballs says: Sep 28, 2009 8:20 AM

    I think Rat Ratto as a football sage will be very tempoary. Go play the dutch-rudder with Mark Shlereth. Well said ncm42.

  11. Bob Loblaw says: Sep 28, 2009 8:30 AM

    Yes, Favre’s heroics are temporary. My guess is they will last 19 or 20 years.
    Ironic this play happened against the 49ers. Reminds me of “The Catch”, though that was an NFC championship game and this was just a early season win. But “The Catch” catapulted the 49ers to a decade of dominance, so maybe this is the start of bigger things for the Favre-led Vikings.

    ————————–
    He’s right. They didn’t do anything wrong. It’s the coaching staff who failed them with the ultra-conservative run-run-run-punt BS to lose the game.

  13. JRLC says: Sep 28, 2009 9:59 AM

    Farve still has that magic & from the looks of the bullet he threw for the winning TD, he could play another 5 years. big time play for G.Lewis/Favre & a big time win for the Vikings. the Vikings looked like a complete football team with the addition of Favre & that throw was the reason he was brought in. Farve passed the big test & the purple #4 jerseys are flying off the shelf faster then ever.
    Singletary is what every team wants in a HC. he keeps players in check, he knows the game, he’s been in their situations & can relate to every player, he motivates the team & also keeps them humble. he’s got the 49ers on the right track & once they get real QB the 49ers will be a contender for years again. the only thing i didnt like was how he went 3 & out then punted, with Farve’s past come backs he should have tried for the a couple 1st downs instead of beating the dead horse runs up the middle. i also didnt like the prevent defense at the end when it wasnt what worked all day. he will learn & improve from this game, he’s just to good of a coach.
    i’m not a fan of the vikings or 49ers but i’m a huge fan of football & that game was awesome.

  14. ZN0rseman says: Sep 28, 2009 10:10 AM

    Singletary did exactly the same thing he did when we beat the 49ers with Gus Ferrotte last year. Singletary sold out everything defensively to stop Adrian Peterson, stacking the box with 8 and 9 defenders on every down and leaving his secondary out on an island. This allowed both Favre (and Ferrotte in 2008) to put up huge statistical days.
    But, at least there will be headlines about how Peterson failed to get 100 yards against the 49ers again… right Florio?
    Also, I just want to point out how extremely lucky the 49ers were, because that blocked field goal turned a game that would have been a blowout into a closely contested battle.

  15. thecree says: Sep 28, 2009 10:16 AM

    Singletary is the real deal….This guy is turning the niners into warriors.

  16. Wonderlic--myballs says: Sep 28, 2009 10:47 AM

    Apple crisp shitterson- please quit repeating we all can read in the papers.What was your point?
    Was a great game with both teams getting some breaks..par for NFL games.
    I will never understand the people that can’t appreciate Favre. When he was a Packer I admired him and I bleed purple and gold. A good old country boy that plays the game with a passion that is unmatched. Wish they all could play like him but then again that is why he is special. The winning pass was sweet as hell but him running downfield 30 yards to jack up that monster Willis for Berrian was PRICELESS. Hell,Willis then helped Brett up,the kind of respect that great players give him. People that don’t are just idiots.

  17. Beer Cheese Soup says: Sep 28, 2009 11:06 AM

    Norseman-since when is three points the difference between a close game and a blowout? And how can a team be extremely lucky when they lose?
    Congrats to the Vikes on the last second win, it was a very good game. I also have to echo what’s been said about Singletary, he is shaping up to be a great coach. However, one good (okay-amazing) throw does not make anyone an MVP. Testaverde was throwing TD’s in his 40′s as well. Hold off on the parade Viking fans. There’s a lot of season left.

  18. Chickenfoot says: Sep 28, 2009 11:26 AM

    When was that train wreck going to happen again?
    The guy does this for the Vikes and it’s lucky? While he did it for the Pack it was all skill?
    Sounds about right for a Packer fan.
    BeerCheese: I commend you. You have been nothing but gracious in your assessments. Thank you.
    It was good for you the Pack got untracked yesterday. Should shape up to be an exciting game Monday.
    I didn’t watch the Packer game, how many times did Rodgers get sacked? I heard of at least 2. I also heard it was Babre that gave them up.
    If that is true, they may want to consider playing his back-up. The Vikes ush was just tenacious this week.
    Don’t believe it will be a blowout either way though, they have been for the most part, hotly contested games. I can’t wait!

  19. purpleguy says: Sep 28, 2009 11:28 AM

    The 49ers are a pretty damn solid team, Singletary is a good coach, Vernon Davis has really come around, and their LBs are studs. Having said that, the game shouldn’t have been as close as it was given the Vikings’ defensive and statistical dominance. Yet a win is a win.
    Favre’s first TD throw to Rice was sweet, as was the final TD pass. Clearly, he still has the arm strength. However, his receivers dropped too many balls (Berrian particularly), and he threw at least 5 bad balls, so there’s quite a bit of room for improvement. As to Favre’s reign being temporary, that’s what the Vikes expected anyway. He won’t have to throw like this all year with #28 in the backfield.

  20. footballrulz says: Sep 28, 2009 11:33 AM

    That was one well played game. Wish I could say the same for the officiating. Bogus roughing the passer & bogus taunting calls. Obvioulsy nothing wrong with Favre’s arm & that was one hell of a catch. Vikes better shore up that offensive line if they want him for all 16 games–as well as telling him to stop trying to block. Course, that’s what makes Favre, Favre.

  21. 49ERGIRL says: Sep 28, 2009 12:01 PM

    As soon as he caught that damn ball the words that came out of my mouth were “NOT AGAIN!” Brett Favre will haunt my football nightmares…

    So the blocked FG for TD was luck… But the kick return for TD? That was skill.

  23. Chickenfoot says: Sep 28, 2009 12:08 PM

    Speaking of calls…. What was that defensive delay of game penalty all about? I have watched football for many years. I don’t EVER recall seeing that as a penalty. ( unless they are screwing around with the ball so the offense can’t get set.)
    Poorly offciated game definitely. Props to the 49ers though. I expect them to win that division handily.

    ——————————-
    I think my point was fairly obvious. But I’ll spell it out for you. It’s apparent you need that. The 49ers made no attempt to get a first down on their last possession. And this is how they’re rewarded.
    Great pass by Favre, unbelievable catch by Lewis. And the 49ers could’ve prevented all of it by acting like they had a pair and getting creative for the win.

  26. Fan of Football says: Sep 28, 2009 12:24 PM

    Yeah, Favre heroics are only temporary when his teams are giving up 21 first qtr points to Vick in the playoffs, giving up 4th and 26 plays like they are going out of style, and allowing Eli/Barber and comp to gain 400 yards and 24 first downs on them at home in -10 weather. He’s Favre, not Superman.

  27. Chickenfoot says: Sep 28, 2009 12:26 PM

    Adam, most teams play conservative like that.
    They don’t want to turn the ball over.
    Then they rely on their defense for a stop.
    You can’t fault them for that. The Vikes still had to drive down the field with no timeouts and make the plays, which they did. Passing the ball and having inconpletions saves the Vikings timeouts. It was the right thing to do. It just didn’t work this time because of the amazing play that occured.

  28. Supersuckers says: Sep 28, 2009 12:34 PM

    In Green Bay (not since 99) he would lead the team to a td in the same situation. The difference is it was never a wing and a prayer like yesterdays was. Throw=prayer (had to do it) Catch=awesome (if his left foot was indeed in bounds)

  29. footballrulz says: Sep 28, 2009 12:39 PM

    I forgot about that defensive delay of game–another idiot call. I think Rodgers was sacked 3 times. Line actually played alittle better in the 2nd half (though still not great). I actually think it was Mcarthey actually making adjustments at halftime (an amazing thing for him to do) where Rodgers got the ball out quicker. The line is horrendous but Rodgers has a tendancy to hold the ball too long–that’s when the line really caves. Glad we got some experience against Jackson today. He’s a beast of a running back which will give us a little experience for next week.
    Favre keeps playing with the discipline he’s been showing Vikes are going deep. However, in reality he should have had at least three picks yesterday, and the last one should have been a pick 6. That’s the problem with letting Favre hang around. He’ll beat you every time. Good game.

  30. nosleN boB says: Sep 28, 2009 12:46 PM

    On Sunday, how many QBs ran 30 yards downfield to throw a block for a reciever he just threw a pass to? How many? Oh yeah, just one.
    Enough of the for/against Favre b.s. Dude plays the game with more guts and grit than any other.
    He will live to play another day and continue to haunt the dreams of 49ERGIRL.

  31. Wonderlic--myballs says: Sep 28, 2009 12:59 PM

    Thanks Adam-Chris. I see so clearly now. Your statement to ZNorseman is fair also but I do believe a great kick return for a touchdown takes a lot of skill. Seems the good returners do it time and time again i.e. Devin Hester,Dante Hall,Brian Mitchell. Sure can be lane screwups that help but many those boys are just great returners. Harvin split the seem and is fast as hell. I really expect more return tds for him to come. Most FG attempts are routine plays resulting in blocks usually from a screwup like Hutch and Loadholt. I feel lucky if the Vikes block one but maybe thats just me.

  32. Chickenfoot says: Sep 28, 2009 1:00 PM

    Super:
    Trying to rile up the natives are we?
    That throw was the only place it could be for Lewis to make the catch, and you know it.
    I’m pretty sure if the officials didn’t find anything to overturn it, it’s safe to say he was inbounds.
    Jealousy will get you nowhere my freind.
    Why not just admit it was a great throw?
    Or is it just because Rodgers is like 1-9 in those 2 minute drill situations?
    I’m sure that has a lot to do with it.
    Way to smoke those Rams though!

  33. Supersuckers says: Sep 28, 2009 1:10 PM

    Rulz,
    Holding the ball too long used to be called “coverage sacks” What was he supposed to do with it? Ground it? There are a few moments that for us TV and bleacher viewers that it may look like he is holding onto the ball but put a helmet on and try to see through 10 6 foot 4 inch 320 lb linemen and tell me you wouldnt need a extra half secong to see. Views great from the bleachers and the recliner. Completely different game at eye level. Thats why QBs miss open recceivers and we get mad at them. They simply cannot see them while we can. You know what….Favre being on the Vikings actually makes me think we have a shot in this game. With Jackson I would say we would have a punchers chance. INTS baby!

  34. Chickenfoot says: Sep 28, 2009 1:27 PM

    Super:
    Maybe you should be worrying more about Peterson, considering that the Pack is giving up an average of 128.7 yds per game on the ground.
    I’d expect to see a bigger dose of Harvin also.
    I’m not saying the Pack has no chance, division games between these 2 teams are usually close.
    But, Kevin,Pat, Jared and Ray, present your offensive line with thier toughest task yet.
    I see the Barber of Seville gave up another 2 sacks against the Rams.
    Favre isn’t the key to this game. The Pack’s ability to “stop” ALL DAY and keeping Rodgers upright are.
    They haven’t been doing very well on protection so far, and being about 20th in the league in rush defense has got to be a huge concern going against the best pure runner in the NFL.

  35. footballrulz says: Sep 28, 2009 1:29 PM

    Holding the ball too long is still called coverage sacks. You get out of the pocket and throw it away. I realize how hard it is to see during a live action football game and the advantage of being on a recliner/bleacher–I have actually played the game-not ata pro level obviously. That’s why your O-linemen are supposed to block their opponents in certain directions to set up what is known as a passing lane. We don’t seem to be getting that done.
    And what’s Jackson got to do with interceptions. If I recall the only Jackson on the Pack is Brandon & he is currently an injured running back. Could you possibly have meant Woodson?

  36. Supersuckers says: Sep 28, 2009 1:47 PM

    Chickenfoot,
    If it were jealousy I would certainly let you know that’s what it is. I’ll take our guy over Minnesota’s guy every day of the week, twice on Sunday, and 10 times over next Monday Night!

  39. Chickenfoot says: Sep 28, 2009 2:24 PM

    Super:
    You do that. You are most likely going to take your lumps after the game too.
    Rodgers is a good QB, but Minnesota’s D is very tough this year. You have 3 pro bowlers on the line going up against a OL that has struggled against sub par defensive lines.
    He can be as good as he wants to be, but you cannot complete passes throwing off your back.
    I will say it again. If the pack can’t stop Peterson and can’t pass protect. They are in trouble. Especially if The Pack doesn’t get thier own run game going.
    Favre plays a caretaker role in this game, I don’t see Peterson getting bottled up by the 20th ranked run defense.
    The Pack may win, but it isn’t going to be from Favre interceptions.
    Face it, the Pack has a lot to shore up, that they haven’t shored up in 3 weeks. Are they automagically going to do it in 1 week? Doubtful.
    Close game, but I think the Vikings win this at home.

  40. Supersuckers says: Sep 28, 2009 2:25 PM

    Chicken,
    I use the Aikman rankings for comparison because i think the media and or league uses yards allowed to rank offenses and defenses. there is just too much garbage time etc etc to use yards gained and allowed as a true formula. Peterson? Who doesnt worry about him. Theyll do what they can to stop him. Minnesota will use him alot too. Though I think to really get to Green Bay’s D I’d use more and more of Taylor in the pass game. I actually think that with all the good 4 brings to the table he also brings the bad and this is a game he is going to be nervous for. Who wouldnt be? Its a coin toss with Minny having maybe a slight edge being at home.

    Agreed Adam. Now if its 1995….

  44. Chickenfoot says: Sep 28, 2009 2:39 PM

    Well Adam, It happens every sunday a lot of the time. I guess I’d tend to side with the guys that have been in football thier whole life, whether playing or coaching over a Packer fan who is pissed because Favre isn’t as finished as said packer fan thought he was.
    I just love you asshats that think correcting typin errors makes you so much better than everyone else.
    If you took a poll of all the coaches in the NFL, I’m sure the overwhelming response would be that Singletary did the correct thing.
    They only ran 2o seconds off, because Minnesota had all 3 timeouts left.
    That you don’t understand why they palyed it the way they did baffles me.
    The 49ers have a tough defense, he put it on them to stop them. They had to have a perfect pass and catch to win, that’s what they got.
    It’s like sending a runner from 3rd to home in baseball, they need a perfect throw from the outfield to nail you at the plate, they do, you tip your cap. He played the percentages and it didn’t work out, simple as that.
    So, go cry somewhere else, you are just cheesed because the Vikes won.
    If you still don’t understand, obviously you’re not a golfer.
    Don’t worry, I don’t expect you to get that refrence either.

  45. footballrulz says: Sep 28, 2009 3:00 PM

    Super & Chicken
    1st of all Super let me say I’m a little bit proud of you. Outside of the I’ll take my guy over your guy thing you are at least coming with some football talk ( a little) and not not just green & gold foolishness. Keep it up.
    Chicken you gotta admit Favre should have been picked at least 3 times yesterday & the last one would have been a pick 6 to seal the game. If the Packers are to have any hope of a chance on Monday it’ll have to come from Woodson/Harris getting those same opportunities. Hell, Jolly might even get his third one. The only way we will win is if our defense gets it. Favre took some pretty bigtime hits himself yesterday. Your O-Line isn’t exactly a steel curtain (not as bad as ours though). Raji, Jolly & Jenkins are going to have to bring it.
    I wish McArthey would get away from that offensive zone blocking crap & just let ‘em try to go at it. Barbre is just a wasted body. We’re also going to have to cut down on the stupid mistakes like false starts & holding. Packers really need a new O Line coach cause it’s been too bad too long.
    If this becomes an offensive struggle Vikings win in a blow out. Currently our QB is always on hte run, I receivers are droppping balls in a very uncharacteristic manner & we have no run game. MM is gong to have to totally change his game plan.. Foolish to try to stuff it up the middle on Jared & the wall.
    Automagically–I gotta remember that one.

  47. FastEddy415 says: Sep 28, 2009 3:23 PM

    Favre is great.
    But I dont see favre lasting 13 more games without injury. It wouldnt surprise me to see T.Jack starting soon.
    The Vikings are good and perhaps the class of the NFC (by default I may add) along with the Giants.
    Is it me? but doesnt it seem the NFC is looking weak these days?

  48. Wonderlic--myballs says: Sep 28, 2009 3:24 PM

    Favre nut huggers? lol Whatever you say Shitterson. I for one will take Favre and the Vikes over Rodgers and the Pack next MNF anyday.
    -Stephen Jackson ran for 117 and 4.3 avg. against the Pack. AD will do much better.
    -that 2-5-4 D not great. Expect Shiancoe to beat up on your LB’s like Fells did for Rams.Hawk will get bullied and Brandon Chillar can’t cover. Chester Taylor and Harvin will get many catches and YAC.
    -Daryn Colledge playin for Clifton yet? Rams beat him up,like Jarred Allen won’t??
    -Face it,how many sloppy arm tackles did Jackson break yesterday?AD lickin those chops his.
    -Packers dropped some passes yesterday…but Vikes did too. Both got to get that together.
    -Rodgers scrambles good, but we got speed keep that in check.
    -Pack making it by plus 8 in turnovers. We have been holding the ball good. That Favre interception was not his fault,off Berrians hands.
    -I am concerned about our secondary,better get it together. Rodgers much better than Hill and Driver and Jennings solid. Pressure will be important.
    Homefield,motivated Favre and supporting cast to help him blow up his old team. Vikes 35-17.Be a good game.

    Ask any head coach or GM in the NFL what the most important statistic is regarding a football game and a football season and everyone of them will tell you turnover ratio. So for Low Wonderlic score hairy balls to say we are “surviving” off the most important statistic in the game and trying to make it sound insulting is laughable. Got a lot to learn my friend.

    Vikings Coaching is still boring. I bet you a million dollars they run it on the first play of the next game. Any takers?
    I see sparks of offensive brilliance in the passing game, but i’m pretty sure that is because of Favre audibles. Favre is probably a better offensive playcaller then chilly dog will ever be.
    Singletary is becoming a damn good coach in my opinion
    he took a far less talented team and almost beat the vikings.
    if the vikings had a coach like that instead of Chilifeless we would terrorize every team we went up against.
    If Favre gets injured this year, move him to offensive coordinator and have him call plays.
    Phil Loadholt needs to learn how to block on pass plays better, and we still can’t pick up blitzes for crap. I feel sorry for whoever the QB has to be behind the attrocious pass blocking line of the Vikings.
    It amazes me how bad this team can play with all that talent year after year. 3-0… easy schedule and each game was close through the 2 quarters. what are the Vikings going to do when they play Pittsburgh? New York Giants? Baltimore? I see three in the loss column right there.

    Rulz:
    Look I dont think the Vikes are flawless.
    I also don’t like to deal in what if’s. It didn’t happen so I consider it irrelevant.
    I’m not trying to be faceitous about it either. It’s just that if you argue like that, you can what if yourself out of every loss. Did he get a little careless yesterday? Yeah a little. The one play though, him and Rice were not on the same page as far as the route. That’s all on him for not being there at camp. We accept that and it hopefully will get better through the year.
    Our pass blocking isn’t the greatest, no. I’m liking though that he is taking the sacks and not just hoisting it up there. The plays that were near picks, is him finding out that he can’t make the plays he used to. There again, hopefully.
    As for the run game, I don’t you are going to see much success there, Minnesota was on fire in the SF, hell they were almost beating the ball to the back. I really think they must have seen something on film, because they were off the ball very quickly, must have known the snap counts or something. They have been tough to run for 3 years running and it’s going to have to be on Rodgers to carry them.
    Look rulz, I respect your opinion and the trash I talk doesn’t pertain to a lot of these other fools.
    Super, You can go ahead and use Aikman’s formula. I’ll go with what the NFL goes by. If it’s good enough for them…
    Wonderlic, no way is this an 18 point game….either way. I look for it to be about like game 1 last year.

    Well Adam, It happens every sunday a lot of the time. I guess I’d tend to side with the guys that have been in football thier whole life, whether playing or coaching over a Packer fan who is pissed because Favre isn’t as finished as said packer fan thought he was.
    I just love you asshats that think correcting typin errors makes you so much better than everyone else.
    If you took a poll of all the coaches in the NFL, I’m sure the overwhelming response would be that Singletary did the correct thing.
    They only ran 2o seconds off, because Minnesota had all 3 timeouts left.
    That you don’t understand why they palyed it the way they did baffles me.
    The 49ers have a tough defense, he put it on them to stop them. They had to have a perfect pass and catch to win, that’s what they got.
    It’s like sending a runner from 3rd to home in baseball, they need a perfect throw from the outfield to nail you at the plate, they do, you tip your cap. He played the percentages and it didn’t work out, simple as that.
    So, go cry somewhere else, you are just cheesed because the Vikes won.
    If you still don’t understand, obviously you’re not a golfer.
    Don’t worry, I don’t expect you to get that refrence either.
    —————————–
    You’re such a tool. Look at how many games the Packers lost last year because of hyper-conservative play calling. Get into FG range, then run, run, run, kick. Whoops, missed the field goal. Maybe we should’ve thrown a pass and tried for a first down.
    Go ahead and side with the football guys. In this instance they’re wrong. You play the whole game one way and then freeze up in the last 2 minutes? Right. Makes lots of sense. Herm Edwards agrees with me.

    —————————
    Please. When he was a Packer I was calling for Favre to play his role in the offense for years. I never hugged his sack. I said he needed to stop making stupid throws and take what the defense gave him.
    And I never said he sucks. I said he makes bad decisions. I said he’ll lose games for the Queens. I said he’ll get run down at the end of the season.
    And I love it when you misspell a word in the very sentence when you call me an idiot. Congrats!

    Favre nut huggers? lol Whatever you say Shitterson. I for one will take Favre and the Vikes over Rodgers and the Pack next MNF anyday.
    -Stephen Jackson ran for 117 and 4.3 avg. against the Pack. AD will do much better.
    -that 2-5-4 D not great. Expect Shiancoe to beat up on your LB’s like Fells did for Rams.Hawk will get bullied and Brandon Chillar can’t cover. Chester Taylor and Harvin will get many catches and YAC.
    -Daryn Colledge playin for Clifton yet? Rams beat him up,like Jarred Allen won’t??
    -Face it,how many sloppy arm tackles did Jackson break yesterday?AD lickin those chops his.
    -Packers dropped some passes yesterday…but Vikes did too. Both got to get that together.
    -Rodgers scrambles good, but we got speed keep that in check.
    -Pack making it by plus 8 in turnovers. We have been holding the ball good. That Favre interception was not his fault,off Berrians hands.
    -I am concerned about our secondary,better get it together. Rodgers much better than Hill and Driver and Jennings solid. Pressure will be important.
    Homefield,motivated Favre and supporting cast to help him blow up his old team. Vikes 35-17.Be a good game.
    —————————-
    Wonderlic, wipe your chin and listen up. This wasn’t a discussion about Favre + Vikings vs Rodgers + Packers. I said it’s only the Favre nuthuggers who’d take him over Rodgers. Rodgers put up 4,000 + yards in his first year as a starter. Top 5 ranked QB, and he’s got another 10 years to play.
    Favre has shown a propensity over the recent past to wear down at the end of the season, try to do too much and lose games because of it. Right now he looks great. But didn’t he look even better at this point last season? How’d that turn out? And oh yeah, he’s got this season and then how much left?
    That’s why I said it’s only the Favre fan-boys who’d take Favre over Rodgers. Youth and decision-making.

    Shitterson- gotcha son,but see? In my misunderstanding I got to school you a little!!! Bill in the mail.

  58. Lost says: Sep 28, 2009 5:23 PM

    Dashon Goldson (38) and Mark Roman (26) are covering Greg Lewis (17) on the final play. Roman appears to have excellent coverage. He responded well to Lewis entering his coverage zone.
    It is Goldson (38) who loses containment and is outrun on the play.
    Notice Lewis is completely covered when thrown to. Also, the location of Favre’s 50 yard throw is perfect to the point of being ridiculous.

  59. Beer Cheese Soup says: Sep 28, 2009 5:23 PM

    That’s a very good assessment Rulz. I agree, this game comes down to defense and QB decision making. If it’s just an offensive shootout, we don’t stand half a chance. We may have some good weapons, but they aren’t good for much when no one can block for them, and Peterson is… well.. Peterson.
    If I’m McCarthy (after I hit the gym), I draw it up like this:
    On Defense, stuff the box. Shut down AP at all costs. Force them to beat us through the air. Our corners are a decent match for the Viking WRs, and Favre tends to make mistakes when passing all game. His emotions will be running particularly high for this game, we need to take advantage of that. Even if they do score on a couple of long bombs (and they will), keep minimal coverage. Do not let Peterson have anywhere to run, and eventually you’ll get a few picks.
    On offense, the Vikings have seen our joke of a line. They will be bringing the heat, and they have the talent up front to do it. Run the ball, then run the ball, then run the ball, do some short screens and dink and dunk stuff, then run the ball some more. That will slow down the blitz somewhat and get the play action taken seriously. After that, roll Rodgers out of the “pocket”, hope he doesn’t get hit anyway, and take advantage of the Vikings’ weak secondary. If Jennings even sees the ball in the first quarter, you’re doing it wrong. Stay committed to the run even if you’re not getting anywhere.
    I still have my doubts about our chances in this game. We’ve made too many mistakes thus far, and the Vikings have plenty of talent that can take advantage of those mistakes. Let’s just hope the intense rivalry and Favre-hate lights a fire under our defense, because IF we have a shot, it hinges entirely on them.

  60. Wonderlic--myballs says: Sep 28, 2009 6:27 PM

    Pretty solid stuff there BeerCheeseSoup, I think it sounds like a good plan really. With your line it will be a huge challenge to run against us though. I think it will come down to Rodgers airing it out. Quit frankly,that scares the shit out of me. We let Hill and Davis look a lil too Montana and Rice at times. I think Rodgers is better than Hill easily and Jennings and Driver are pretty damn good. Our secondary looks very soft at times. D line got to bring for us,and they can.
    That huge question is can you stop AD? Good luck with that,but you got plenty of San.Fran tape to watch,they did good job(which means he only got 85 yds.) Don’t think your run D near as good as 49ers though.If you bring every one watch out for Harvin and Shiancoe. Harvin is a very dangerous player that can turn a dink into a slam dunk.
    Sure you do want Favre to throw 48 like yesterday cuz picks can be had. We got lucky yesterday, they were dropping them. I feel better with 20-25 throws.
    Whatever happens,one thing for sure. A damn exciting game to look forward to. Favre in purple playin the Pack?? Who would of thunk.

  61. footballrulz says: Sep 28, 2009 6:44 PM

    Beer CHeese–McCarthey in the gym–trying to get that image out of my head. Good game plan–not so sure about the run, run , run. We gotta get 1st downs somehow. Good concept though-I certainly see the philosophy.
    Chicken–I like the philosophy it didn’t happen so it’s irrelevant. I wish the fact that our line actually blocking didn’t happen could make that irrelevant.

  62. purple hay-seuss says: Sep 28, 2009 7:42 PM

    According to the GB Brain Trust (and I mean those that have LEFT the Bowling Alley Bar), Favre won’t last the whole season, Rogers is God, Peterson will fumble 19 times, Jared Allen’s haircut is cool, Berrian is ‘highly-overpaid’, TJack sucks, Favre is named after a woman’s birth canal, Childress is a moron… *Inhale*… Childress is an idiot, The BiQueens have lost 4 superbowls, they all smoke weed before the draft, they all have sex on boats, they all hit cops with big cars, they all use artificial male genitalia to pee with in airports in front of security people, they all generally are just really dumb. And Childress is bald. And has glasses. And has a beard. And is dumb. And Favre is the AntiChrist. And Peterson is a loser that fumbles away the Vikings silly good fortune of getting super-lucky every week because the refs give them all the calls.
    Next week, they’ll be saying all of the above. Again. Even after the victory, they’ll be braying on and on about how unfair it was that Allen andEdwards sacked God all those times and Driver WAS interfered with on that 3rd down that would have put us in FG range, Dude. And that Favre was lucky to get out alive and that those faggy pink shoes were really faggy. And that Childress is is is really dumb and lucky to be alive and I can’t believe the Queens are 4-0. The refs give them all the calls, the faggy Queenie Queens. I wish we had an O line, Dude. And Raji looked great for being just a rookie that held out for the whole camp. Two tackles and 3 penalties isn’t that bad for a rookie like that.
    And if GB wins, they won’t shut up, ever. Period. No matter the outcome of any of the games left in the whole future of the NFL, they won’t shut up, ever. Ever. They’re lucky that Jimmy and Bob’s uncle owns that Alley. He lets them into the bar to have free Cokes but they can’t have beer and they have to keep their mouths shut. And not stare at any boobs.

    _____________
    McCarthy is so pass-happy most of the time (probably from being a QB coach) that no defense we face ever takes the play action seriously. That problem has recently been more evident than usual with our high school-grade OL.
    You’re right. We probably wouldn’t get a 1st down at all for the first three or four drives. However, no defense is perfect. Eventually they slip, the RB breaks one for 20 or more, and then they start biting on the play fake, then they drop more into coverage and Aaron can finally stay upright enough to complete at least one out of every four. The only way to score on a strong defense like the Vikings have is with a perfectly balanced attack.
    Sadly, I don’t think our playcalling has ever really been balanced, and that may well be our downfall on Monday.

    That’s okay though. I was just enjoying this thread, it was a rarity on this site, a real, actual football discussion. Then it got turned into the same blather: Vikings suck, they lost a lot in the past/no Packers suck, they’re losing now/well Whizzinator and Love boat and etc/well Reynolds and Harrell and Mandarich/ something about your mom/you’re a fag/no you are.
    I’m not saying you started it, or that you should take the high road. All morality aside, this shit is old. We’re all tired of it. We hate each other for football reasons, is it so hard to keep our discussions limited to football?
    Oh, and of course Florio doesn’t give a damn. He thrives on controversy and the hits it brings. Why do you think every other article on here is either about the Vikings, Packers or Cowboys? Because people hate them, of course. And keep your cheap gin. I’m drinking scotch. And smoking. I’m not the moral defender of shit, thank you kindly.

That had me ready to get back to work and play. LOL. I was at the game on sunday and saw a team that isn’t the most tallented but never quit and had a belief that they would win the game the whole time. To all the 49ers fans out in PFT land.
