Opening Letdown: Vikings Fall to Pack 24-19

The Packers didn’t need Brett Favre to beat the Vikings for the fifth straight time. Aaron Rodgers passed for one touchdown and ran for another in lifting Green Bay to the 24-19 win at Lambeau Field in the season opener for both teams. Will Blackmon ran back a punt 76 yards for a score, and Atari Bigby intercepted Tarvaris Jackson on the Vikings’ last-ditch drive to seal the win.

Jackson completed 18 of 35 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown, while Adrian Peterson rushed for 101 yards and a score. The Vikings defense came up with zero turnovers and failed to record a sack to lose their season opener for the first time under coach Brad Childress. The Vikings host Indianapolis on Sunday.

    This is joke….I mean really we gave a draft pick for this!!!!! Our QB still sucks beyond no doubt he can’t read my sons first grade book!!! He has the best running back in the league and still can’t do a corret playaction pass. Our defense was soft as my girl tits!!! There was so much armtackles that I know those guys arms are bruised. This so called line held up well in the run but couldn’t smell cheese comin from Aron Rodgers. Our secoundary is still god awful they have no clue what there doing they look confused just like in madden 09 !!! WTF is going here I been a diehard Viking fan since 87 WTF is going again why is the Vikings so soft in the defense it’s because they heart for the Viking team there’s no loyal player there!! Our coach by the way is also re re as well!! Fire either him or the secoundary coach simple as that. His play calling is suspect! Please lord let them spend Money to get a real Qb and secoundary coach pleaseeee!! Well I guess that’s it that’s all I got say…….o0o wait the Vikings secoundary need to dig in the create and look at joewy browner tapes get sum heart back cause they look like they was scared!!!
