GREEN BAGS, Wiseass. — Aaron Rogers doesn’t need more guns than the Green Bay Packers.
Something has to change, whether it’s the influx of game manufacturers who can stop the race, or the overhaul of the circuit.
If that doesn’t happen, it will be another year before the other side of the ball costs Rogers his second Super Bowl. Not that Rogers is innocent in his search for a second title, but Sunday’s 2-5 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday 28-22 – which defeated the Packers 5-2 in what was essentially a one-player match against Delvin Cook – revealed the same problems that eliminated Green Bay in an NFC championship game against the San Francisco 49ers last year. The same 49 people happen to be next at the Packers show in California on Thursday.
The defensive possessions of the first four Packers came to an end at Lambo on Sunday:
- Cook, 21-yard touchdown for a target of 73 yards and 10 games.
- Cooking, one meter touchdown to catch a 12-game discus, 67 yards.
- Cook, 1 yard touchdown for a 65-yard disc for 10 players.
- Cook, 50-yard touchdown, four games, 63-yard drive kick.
He is now the first Viking to score four touchdowns at Lambo Field, the first player invited to score four touchdowns here since Carolina Deangelo Williams in 2008, and the first player since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970 to score a TD in each of the first four touchdowns of his team, according to Elias.

On the way to his four points Cook collected 226 yards (163 in the race and 63 in the landing).
This suggests that Packers’ director Brian Gutekunst was actively seeking help from the beneficiaries – he reportedly contacted Houston Texans through Will Fuller for Tuesday’s negotiation date. If he hadn’t asked for defense help by Sunday, he’d have to do it now.
With two Pitmen defeats this season, the defense was unable to hold out after a quick start to the attack. Sunday’s game was 14-14, with both teams scoring touchdowns in the first half – and only two possessions in the first half. The Viking defense, which played an improvised second place, stopped Rogers and Dawante Adams, who scored the first two touchdowns. Conditioner protection couldn’t respond.
As for coach Matt LaFleur’s options, he won’t have much time to adjust in a short week and meet the team that embarrassed them twice last year: 38-7 in the regular season and 37-20 in the NFC championship game. It would have been almost impossible to change the defense coordinators at that time, but Mike Pettin’s status was precarious after a 285 meter run by the 49ers, so he could be questioned at some point.
Including the playoffs, the Packers have now allowed 200 yards and four TDs in the game: The kitchen on Sunday and Rahim Mostert in the game for the NFC championship of 2019.

At least they finished with Cook, who scored six of the eight touchdowns of the Vikings against the Packers this season. Mustert is in the injury pool and will not play on Thursday.
The destruction of the Buy More: In strong winds, Rogers was still effective in the early stages, so time could be short. He made the first nine passes and then shot from 17 meters into the end zone. In the third quarter, Robert Tonyan shot from 45 yards up close when the game ended at 9:14 p.m. The Packers opened with more than 13 consecutive discs, and this is only the second time during Rodgers’ tenure that they have opened a game with two such discs. Rogers finished 27 out of 41 for 291 yards and three touchdowns without interception.
It’s a promising trend: These two long opening games ended with touchdown passes to Adams, who scored a third touchdown goal in the fourth quarter. Over the past five seasons, Adams has played 11 games with multiple touchdowns. No other player finished Sunday with more than eight such matches in that time.
Unpleasant tendency: For the third time in the last four games the Packers’ defense failed to strengthen. They only have four starts (two interceptions, two recoveries) throughout the season. They haven’t had any interceptors since the second week. This season they are gaining strength nine times, after turning 25 last year.
