Packers are preparing for Sam Bradford, such that it matters

Titans coach Mike Mularkey was fooled last week, because he didn’t think the Vikings would trade a first- and a fourth-round pick for Sam Bradford so they could start Shaun Hill.

Likewise, Packers coach Mike McCarthy expects Bradford to start for the Vikings this week.

“We’ve taken the approach that we could see either one of the quarterbacks,” McCarthy said, via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “My understanding is that it’s probably going to be Sam Bradford, but I have a lot of respect for Shaun Hill. He played very well against us when he was with the Detroit Lions. So we’ll prepare for both quarterbacks.”

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer didn’t say what he planned to do today, but his best player said he’s aware of the plan.

“Yeah, yeah,” running back Adrian Peterson said, “I know exactly who’s starting.”

Peterson didn’t share his knowledge, but it doesn’t take much imagination to gather that the time for Bradford has likely come. Hill was uninspiring in last week win over the Titans, failing to screw it all up but failing to make any plays either.

“The fact of the matter,” McCarthy said, “is it’s going to start with giving the ball to Adrian Peterson. Every time we play the Vikings, that’s the focal point of our defense.”

McCarthy admitted there were differences in preparing for Bradford vs. Hill, though the emphasis wouldn’t change the basic game plan. But the Vikings’ problem is, to be anything more than basic offensively, they likely have to make the change soon.

    Doesn’t matter which QB the Vikings start – the scrub who knows the offense or the scrub they overpaid for.

  2. Carl Gerbschmidt says: Sep 14, 2016 2:00 PM

    I wonder if Vikes will let their shiny new 1st round draft pick play in this game….

  3. stellarperformance says: Sep 14, 2016 2:01 PM

    The Vikings are going to play Bradford. This is one of their two annual “SuperBowls,” and they need to go all-in…….ready or not.

  4. Uptown Vike Fan says: Sep 14, 2016 2:01 PM

    I’m not sure the Vikes should let Adrian continue to be the spokesperson for the team…

  5. asgrimsnorrison says: Sep 14, 2016 2:03 PM

    Hill was decent except in the red zone, where he was awful. But so was the playcalling, and Peterson.

    I just hope whatever decision they make it is a football decision, not a pr/marketing one.

    Doesn’t matter which QB the Vikings start – the scrub who knows the offense or the scrub they overpaid for, it matters more how Erin plays against a pummeling defense that smells blood. Should be interesting.

  7. lindacaseauthor says: Sep 14, 2016 2:11 PM

    Unlike the Cheeseheads, it won’t matter which QB starts. We have a better roster and a deep more complete team. And we aren’t a one trick pony like our rivals to the east. We lost our starting QB and we’re still in the conversation. If GB lost Lil Erin Munn, they would be toast. No argument. No debate

  8. navyvike says: Sep 14, 2016 2:15 PM

    What they’ll have trouble with is preparing for Zimmer’s defense.

    Good luck cheddarheads and enjoy what should be a good battle.

    This Packer fan wishes Teddy Bridgewater a speedy recovery. The Vikings are a better team without him.

  10. Carl Gerbschmidt says: Sep 14, 2016 2:16 PM

    Interesting to see Vike fans use the feminine spelling of Aaron as some sort of slight. Especially interesting to see females do it. That’s quite an enlightened bunch of fans you got. All class.

  11. tsi431 says: Sep 14, 2016 2:16 PM

    Sad thing is. I’d take GB backup Callahan over either one of the Vikes QB’s any given Sunday. Heck I’d take an injured Hundley over them.

  12. revelation123 says: Sep 14, 2016 2:18 PM

    Hill will probably start actually.

    Amazing to me that the Vikings got the Erin slight from one of their own linebackers. Makes it that much more imaginative.

  20. Wisconsin's Favorite Son Jeffrey Be Dahmed says: Sep 14, 2016 2:42 PM

    As long as Aaron throws for more than 199 yards, we can win. Without that, he will pout and make those big cow-eyed angry looks.

  21. jimnsota says: Sep 14, 2016 2:43 PM

    I really could careless who gets the start. Just dont turn the ball over. We’ve shown we can stay in games without 300+ yds and multiple passing TDs. O-Line needs to play better and Norv needs to mix Mckinnon in more often.

  22. purpleguy says: Sep 14, 2016 2:43 PM

    I can say for a change that I agree with the first Pack poster above: my team is starting either a career back-up or an average QB that’s only had 2 weeks to learn the offense. Not exactly confidence inspiring. If the Vikes can overcome the QB crap and win this game, the Packers will certainly have something to think about.

    And it similarly will be interesting to see if the Packer’s shiny new draft pick can make it past third string and onto the field in a meaningful non-scrub way.

  23. lukeshow says: Sep 14, 2016 2:51 PM

  29. glac1 says: Sep 14, 2016 3:11 PM

    For the Packers, it comes down to containing Peterson and not turning the ball over.

  30. All Knowing says: Sep 14, 2016 3:13 PM

    That’s because putz-head Zimmer has no idea himself what he’s doing. He’ll flip a coin come Sunday and it still won’t matter who starts. Packers 38-0.

  31. richbiatch says: Sep 14, 2016 3:13 PM

    Its funny to listen to the denial on this board. The vikings have won the division just ONCE in the past fifteen years without Favre…. Ill be back on monday to hear the excuses

  32. djvh2 says: Sep 14, 2016 3:14 PM

    McCarthy is correct that Hill has played well vs Green Bay. To me it doesn’t matter. If The Packers play average they should win, anything better and it should be pretty comfortable. The Vikings biggest advantage is in head coaches. Zimmer is far superior to McCarthy, but luckily the Vikes also have Norv Turner to cancel a lot of that out.

  33. pkrlvr says: Sep 14, 2016 3:14 PM

    We have a better roster and a deep more complete team.

    That has yet to win a playoff game this decade. Meanwhile the team your badmouthing is tied with the pats for most consecutive post season appearances. What a delusional fan base. One of you guys even said this years team will have the best defense of all time. Good lord.

  36. djvh2 says: Sep 14, 2016 3:18 PM

    Vikings RBs had 24 carries for 50 yards vs TN. Packers held Jaguars to 46 yards on 24 carries by RBs. Hopefully this stays the same on both sides.

  37. cribbage12 says: Sep 14, 2016 3:20 PM

    Difference between McCarthy and Zim. Zim plays games with who plays. McCarthy, a man’s man, would say “We’re playing X. Come and get us.”

    Zim’s fear is palpable.

  38. 46plank says: Sep 14, 2016 3:22 PM

    Vikes fans are amusing. Spouting off as soon as they get a whiff of success. Don’t kid yourselves. Green Bay is still the team to beat in this division. I don’t like either team (Bears fan). I at least have the highest level of respect for Green Bay and their fans. Not kidding either. Just when I decide I could care less about the Vikings one of their fans says something and totally redeems themselves of the distinction of being the most arrogant fan base in pro sports that has done absolutely nothing.

    Zimmer is hedging his bet. “Hmmmm (scratching himself”)…. If I start Sam I have an excuse that I had a QB with little time to prepare when we get smoked. Bradford it is! Only I’ll play games till Friday and keep the Packers guessing.”

  40. lindacaseauthor says: Sep 14, 2016 3:26 PM

    Yes the Cheeseheads are favored by 2.5 points Odd Sharks, which to me is curious. I mean they barely beat the lowly Jaguars and suddenly they’re going to roll over the VIKINGS??? What’s wrong with this picture people?

    What McCarthy means is they are going to have the same team breakfast buffet, the same team lunch buffet, the same afternoon snack time, the same team dinner buffet, and the same after dinner snacks no matter who is going to be the Viking’s QB on Sunday.

  45. munny10 says: Sep 14, 2016 3:36 PM

    The level of insults back and forth makes me miss 4th grade. On to football, I am really looking forward to this game, with the only caveat being that I do not think either the team that wins or that loses is the team they will be by the time the playoffs come around. At year end, Vikes will have Bradford in tune with the offense, and they already have a great Defense and better ST. Pack will have some key starters back on D in a few weeks, and we will have to see if AR (and MM) can get this offense back on track. Also, can this young D (ILBs, Secondary) step up to the physical level of play needed. In the end, injuries aside, I wouldn’t be surprised to see both teams in the playoffs.

    Brain dead McCarthy? If I recall correctly, he has a ring (that’s what you get when you win a super bowl Minny). Zimmer a genius (maybe defensively)? That tool comes from the Bengals where you’re one and done year after year after year where you get creative in how you lose playoff games. He has that blueprint down in Minny already.

  67. beer4guy says: Sep 14, 2016 4:22 PM

    This should be a good game. I’m looking to forward to watching Rodgers vs. the Vikings’ defense.

    Last year, Denver gave the rest of the league the blueprint to slowing down the Packer’s offense. Single up on the WRs, take away Rodgers first read, and be disciplined in your rush lanes. If Vikings can do that, Rodgers will lower his eye level and start looking for a place to run to buy some time.

    Looks like Rhodes will be out, so that’s a huge loss. But it also looks like Jordy isn’t quite back to 100% yet as he didn’t look as quick out of his breaks last week.

    But if Rodgers is as jittery in the pocket (ala Jim Everett at the same stage in his career), as he was during the second half of last year, Vikings should win. If Rodgers reverts back to pre-2015 form, I’m not sure Bradford has enough grasp of the offense yet to be able to keep up.

  68. patsfan4lifesbchamps says: Sep 14, 2016 4:23 PM

    They are saving Bradford for a playoffs birth.

  69. filthymcnasty3 says: Sep 14, 2016 4:31 PM

    I suspect McCarthy will roll with Rodgers this week.

  70. qoojo says: Sep 14, 2016 4:35 PM

    “So we’ll prepare for both quarterbacks.”

    Meanwhile, title makes it sound like packers are planning on Bradford as the QB. But as the article quotes MM, you know the Vikings will be using AP a lot, so that is priority #1.

    I suspect the Vikings D will give the Packers O a lot of issues. The packers starters were very rusty after not playing pretty much the entire preseason together in a game.

    If packers don’t turn the ball over, they should win the game.

  71. beer4guy says: Sep 14, 2016 4:36 PM

    As far as the Vikings’ QB, Bradford is more talented but Hill has a much better grasp of the offense at this point, so I’m thinking it’s a wash. But in this league, it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. And, provided they stay relatively healthy, the Vikings will be a much better offense at the end of the year with Bradford at the helm.

  72. packsupersoldier says: Sep 14, 2016 4:44 PM

    The Vikings treat this just like any other game.

    Is that why the Vikings specifically requested that their first game in the new stadium be against the Packers?

    Packer fans are nice, wholesome, generous, down-to-earth people, something Viking fans wouldn’t understand. It’s much more likely that they’d skip the big-city stuff. You are right that they’d visit the historical landmarks, like the Laura Ingalls museum.

    Grin, boast, and flaunt all you want to Packer fans but I hope you realize you are in a no win situation in this game.
    IF you win, it is because of the QB situation, if you lose it
    is worse yet! HAHAHA!
    We know the real game will be in December! If I were you I would worry more about the Lions! They SHOULD have beaten you twice last year, and would have save an uncalled interference call on the Hail Mary.
    Your Packers sure didn’t look very dominating against the Jags, a game you could have easily lost.

    Looking forward to Sunday night’s game and the Barney’s laundry list of excuses.

    Top 3.
    1) The Packers just got lucky. (An old standard and always a fave.)

    2) The refs stole the game from us. (Whether it’s a 30 point beat down or a squeaker, there’s always some PI or Holding penalty that was called, wasn’t called, or it was just plain referee favoritism.
    Lame, get over it, but as excuses go, you can certainly count on it.)

    3) Bridgewater’s injury did us in, otherwise…….
    (Never mind the fact pedestrian Teddy could be just as easily replaced with a ham sandwich, they will still hang heavy on this one.)

    You can plan on the Barneys regurgitating all of these and several others, ad nauseam.

    Sunday night can’t get here fast enough and I can’t wait to see Zim’s new t-shirt selection. Should be interesting.

    I remember the silence form GB fans after the Vikings beat GB in GB last year . We shall witness the same Sunday about 10:30pm. They will hide from all social media outlets until they get a win…maybe week 4 or 5 of the season….

    Packers fans are the most arrogant fans I know of on this planet. They act like they are better fans than others just because they cheer for the Packers. They like to put other fans down but get offended if you come back at them, because you know, they are Packer fans and everyone else needs to respect that. After all doesn’t everyone realize no other fan base can appreciate their team like Packer fans?!!! How dare people not realize this!!

    Better prepare for both.

    Bradford for the first quarter.

    Hill for the final three, after Bradford’s injury.

    Should be a good practice session for Bradford to work out the kinks before Carolina

    Yep, the injury was a blessing in disguise

    This Packer fan wishes Teddy Bridgewater a speedy recovery. The Vikings are a better team without him.
