Uncategorized NFC Wild Card Game: Vikings @ Packers January 5, 2013 nibbish 166 Comments I know football isn't hugely popular around here, but there might be some people who are watching the 'other' Minnesota sports game tonight. Go AP! Go Joe Webb! Go Vikes!

Hey, Hitman, what's up?
Watching basketball, you?
the TV has the vikes, the computer monitor directly below it has the wolves.
Probably making a three hour long mistake.
this is like the opposite of that time the pats went with, like, 40+ passing plays in a row.
I was hoping they'd have a 15 play drive with zero passes. Still possible, I guess.
I think thats called 'footbaw!!!'
So, that's why Webb isn't going to be throwing very much.
Also, long live Blair Walsh.
yep. strong arm, horrible footwork/mechanics
is "blair walsh project" a thing? if not, i should make some crappy t-shirts and take a road trip if they win this game.
Sort of? It looks like there was a poster, but I'm not seeing much else.
I wish everyone good luck. I barely remember what playoff football feels like but I know losing doesn't feel too good.
This is going to be... interesting.
One of the five worst passes I've ever seen!!11!!!
aaaaaand thankfully an incompletion.
Ponder's got competition
That was an insanely bad pass. No more of those, please.
The Vikes have a pretty good running back playing at QB tonight.
Just wanted to say, I'm only here and watching to more intelligently taunt Rowsdower afterwards.
Hi everybody! Is this the Packers game log? Am I in the right place?
Yes, and no, you're in Omaha.
(which I will also be this time tomorrow)
Omaha is the right place!
Queens need to dial it up a notch.
Or two. Or three.
Could Eddie Money possibly look any creepier.
Yeah, I was kinda hoping that wasn't really him.
Self-sack there. OMG.
Best sack move ever.
all right, i'm busting into dwindling stash to support the `sota.
Going with this.
Webb is going to make this
So, this is what Vikings fans have been asking for all year. "Couldn't be any worse than Ponder", indeed.
I think it may have been a good idea to bring him into the first Green Bay game because Ponder was absolutely atrocious. But full games just ain't gonna work.
I'd agree with that. When the defense isn't ready for him, he makes weird things happen, but if you have to rely on his arm in any way...
That game against Philadelphia whatever time that was (the one that pretty much ended Vick's career as a useful QB) was pretty great, though.
Spurgon Wynn ugly?
My mom, of all people, still brings him up as the definition of awful football players.
the stink doesnt go away after 12 years.
Sloppy passes in fashion.
I think a defensive or special teams TD is in order for a victory
And lots of scores of the three-point variety
AP went Nikto there.
The Iron Sheik is not impressed by Joe Webb.
Gotta love the "8 yard pass on 3rd and 9" play. Fools 'em every time.
that crowd shot before the commercial showed a lot of purple in the stands.
i went to lambeau for the first time last year. not the most comfortable place to watch a game.
Enjoying one of these to spur Webb on to victory.
some quality down-field tackling here. not the best down-field coverage, though
Need to keep them to a FG here.
and somehow they did...
I'm shocked that they didn't try to go for it again.
Packers were lucky that fg was within Crosby's range.
it could have been worse.
Vikings need points this drive.
Webb put it in a place Woodson couldn't get it!
If we're within a score at the half, it'll be a miracle.
yeah, that's my wish for the end of the half.
a pick 6 would be great right now
holding them to a FG would be great
Well, you were right the first time, too.
New plan: run it. I hear AP is kinda good.
Kinda hard to run the 2 minute offense that way.
It'd still be more successful.
webb keeps throwing directly at the ground. why you hate the ground, webb?
WHY U H8 GROUND!?
You joke and laugh and carry on. The Twins will sign him.
He doesn't throw many strikes.
induces more than blackburn, anyway.
hit a homerintercept it when it's on the ground.
Let's see the backup QB!
I wouldn't be entirely surprised if JMBT was in before the end.
They'd better shelve AP before the end, too. Don't want him to get injured before the Pro Bowl.
my hope is that the first half was used exclusively for calibration purposes.
I'll bet that was it. Those Packers are in trouble now.
In good news, the Twins are closer than the T'Wolves
with the Bungles losing and the Vikings going to lose, the Vikings dont get the tie break advantage when it comes to draft positioning because the Vikings had the tougher schedule.
Hey, at least the Vikes managed to net positive passing yards in the first half. It was -6 close to the end of the half.
the Bangles had something like -15 passing at their halftime earlier today.
...and did they win?
They got closer than the Vikings will.
It'll be funny after the game when Packer dudes will claim that no one gave them a chance to win tonight.
Are you kidding.
Alright who can't count?
we're leading in ineptitude AND stupidity now.
Well, that makes sense.
I'm so glad I gave up on this stuff.
*shrug* I thought they were going to win six games this year. Hard to be too frantic about this.
yep. playing with house money right now.
Playin' with AP's money is more like it.
don't worry, guys, the vikings will score 8 touchdowns next inning.
the 'twelve men on the field' jokes never get old.
the wolves are only down by a touchdown!
and they kicked a field goal!
midfield. well, i never...
ooooh, Webb could have overthrown a wide open receiver that play!!
You gotta hand it to him, he hasn't thrown an int yet tonight.
Spoke too soon.
**record scratch sound**
Might be time to just snap it to AP.
Ugh. I just hope that's not an injury that'll mess up next season for Harrison Smith.
I hear ACL repairs make you better
credit to the Packers. they seemed to improve their run defense from last week
That thing that they pointed out where last week, there were two levels of line versus a one line wall today seems legit.
thats why Al Micheals (knows all the arcane rules, great with down and distance, and will slyly drop in a gambling reference during gameplay) and Cris Collinsworth (picks up on everything. you can tell the guy does film work) are the best.
i'll admit those two are probably being the least insufferable, actually kind of insightful PxP duo of any of the nat'l networks' sports coverages.
they get stuck with 5th place AFC games on CBS, but Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts are pretty good.
well, that figures.
Somebody needs to work on their special teams next year.
So, if you're Ponder, you gotta be feeling pretty good about life right now, eh?
I would think so
I think if they get him a couple of decent receivers, there's something there. Hopefully they're not in a position to get an elite QB anytime soon.
also, lots of secondary help. and a stout nose tackle.
It is amazing how far Webb can throw the ball.
...just not with a shred of accuracy.
is Jacque Jone involved with the Twins? if not, how has this not happened?
He was the batting coach for Ft. Wayne (San Diego organization) last year.
Heh, I also referenced Jacque Jones with my friends yesterday.
4-2, down by 21, and you are punting.
Easterbrook wrote "game over" in his notebook.
I always envision him as a sort of Jack Torrance - writing "Game Over" over and over and over again.
i will concede that i most likely overstated the similarity in talent of the top 2 QBs on the vikings' depth chart.
I will similarly concede. I do wonder how this one would've played out with Ponder behind center.
would have been close, the Ponder throws a dagger pick late
I love AP so much. He hasn't even remotely conceded this game yet.
a touchdown would be nice because seeing '3' on the scoreboard is no fun.
there you go
Is it just me, I keep getting the 502 Bad Gateway?
I was earlier. Haven't yet tonight.
I have been getting it a lot all day.
502 Bad Gateway
OK, so it's not just me and my shitty netbook.
It seems one of the plugins doesn't work well with WordPress 3.5.0, so I disabled it. Unfortunately, no more editing of comments.
JOE WEBB IS THE GREATEST!!!!
Now let's see if Blair Wash is a true all-star
I think the bigger surprise is that Webb didnt sail that 15 feet over or worm burn it under the receiver.
Double digits, baby!
one touchdown away from covering!
That was a weird onside kick.
people scolded Pete Carroll earlier this year when they were blowing out some team and the backup QB came in and they were still passing the ball.
this is why you get your backups some reps.
also, have a decent backup option.
Best backup ever, any sport?
Elston Howard for Yogi Berra?
He wasn't that great, he was 0-1 as a starter that year.
Ugh. Sherels calls for a fair catch with no one within 8 yards of him.
I hope Webb throws a TD to cover.
I'm sure he was told to do that no matter what. Clock management and all.
Buuuut, he's more likely to return the kick for a TD than Webb is to throw for one.
OK, you got me there. Unfortunately coach doesn't see it that way.
if Frazier wants a TD there, he would have stuck AP back there.
So, apparently, Christian Ponder not being able to play was a bad thing?
butt Joe Webb iz bettr!!!!!oneone!!
