The kicking situation wasn't helped when the punter (holder for kicks) was changed after the pre-season games had been completed. I' not saying that there was anything wrong with the holds, but it could be that the level of comfort is not there.



Really, comfort level?

Perfect snaps. Perfect Holds on all three attempts.

Talk about excuse making and coddling.

Hey Daniel, are you feeling comfortable? Can I get you some tea? A hot towel? We may need you to do your fricking job, is there anything I can do to make you feel better?

Sent to the officials before the game:

[Fake News Network - FNN] - We want to keep Rodgers from getting hurt this early in the season. We cannot have the Vikings ahead and that pass rush teeing off on him. We prefer the Packers ahead at halftime, Minnesota can win, but not by more than a FG.

In the first half, if you see anything that might develop into a big play by Minnesota, quickly flag them for holding. Try to force them to pass, take their run game out of the equation.

Do NOT throw any flags on the Packer OL for holding, and any hits on Rodgers, penalize the defense with any subjective call you can find.

I am sure that's not how it went down, but could be a formula for helping a dog beat a favorite.

There seems to be a certain pattern with regards to upsets and officiating. The officiating either appears nuetral, or in favor of the dog at the onset.

I really can't recall a game where the underdog got shafted early on, got way behind, and in their comeback either got no help from the refs, or overcame ref bias the entire game.

Most upsets, the dog seems to get help from refs from the get go, get the benefit of the doubt on close plays, many times get help with obviously incorrect calls, get biased calls in their favor, and the favorite is held at bay by holding calls. Then the dog just 'miraculously' makes a skill play that doesn't involve the refs at the end, or the better team that was getting screwed by the refs, makes an uncharacteristic mistake at the end.

Carlson didn't make any excuses. I thought the hold on the last kick looked to be a bit off, but I have no idea of what type of hold he might prefer. I hope the new kicker can get the job done.

Carrying the conspiracy in post 8903 a little farther:

They wanted the Pack to get way ahead, then the Vikes to mount an improbable comeback, and win by a FG.

Why would they want the Vikes to win ? They wanted the Packers to get flagged on their own rule, the Aaron Rodgers rule, and lose, sending a message to AnimRod, and to the Packers and the rest of the league about whining about the rules.

And to carry that a step further, should the Vikings and Packers meet in the playoffs, the refs will have the green light to call the Aaron Rodgers rule on the Vikings late in the game.

The Packers win, and Packer fans will remind Viking fans of the flag on Matthews the 2nd game of the season. Payback in their eyes.
