Massive game for both teams. Will be tough if the Pack grab 2 division wins vs their biggest rivals in the first 2 weeks.
So many people crowning the Packer defense, sure they had a great game plan vs Trubisky but many times it came down to poor execution for Mitch. I think this is a game we should zag from our week 1 tendency. Yes the run game is key to set up play action but maybe we use more play action to begin the game. The beauty of having a strong run game the prior week can set up the play action right off the bat the following week.
The old pass to get the lead and run to close out the game is in order.
Yeah doubtful the Puckers are going to sit back in cover 2. Gotta believe they think they can rush 4 against our pass pro.
Here’s the good news, they’ve shown they have little answer for Diggs since he became a Viking.
These our basically the same people in the secondary (Albeit a years worth of experience) however they had nobody on the Bears to cover as good as Thielen/ Diggs.
It will come down to the same old thing for us, basically if the OLine plays decent to well we should win.
I do think they are improved at WR.
Think their OLine may be worse, and our D appears a lot closer to the 2017 Vikings as opposed to the 2018 version.
Rodgers as much as I dislike him is a wildcard and can go off. Hit him early and hard!
The goal with Rodgers is to eventually get home, but to keep him contained in the pocket. It's when he gets out of the pocket that he does the most damage. The Vikings have, Under Zimmer, employed an gameplan of containment in the past to great effect.
Looks to me that Erin is less prone to sprinting away from the pocket than he has been in the past, I suspect for 2 reasons, one he has lost a step, and due to that (less escapability) AND injuries in each of the last 2 seasons, he is getting gun shy.
I agree. However, I think he is still pretty accurate on the move. I don't think he's the running threat that he was once.
No QB likes to get hit (maybe Kapp and Luck) but I think Rodgers is hyperaware of self preservation, maybe only second to Manning.
