A few thoughts after Packers’ loss to Vikings
1. McCarthy: Why does it take until after the game to admit he should have adjusted the play-calling? Should have adjusted play-calling ASAP or at least at half- time when they were down only 14-10. Hundley’s biggest strength is his athleticism. How may plays were called for him to roll out of the pocket by design? None.
2. Hundley: Has 10 games to prove he deserves to be a QB in this league, after 3 years in the wings. If he fails, that is major condemnation on Thompson’s ability to draft a successor to Rodgers and McCarthy’s so-called ability as QB guru.
3. Capers: Quit blindly protecting him given the recent years’ results. Besides not being able to get off the field for 9 minutes in the 4th quarter vs Dallas, he had a healthy front 7 for this game and couldn’t put a finger on a third string QB in Keenum all game. No excuses. Bill Cardiff Mequon
Protecting the quar terback?
A breakdown in the officiating protecting the QB has developed in the NFL. This was unmistakable at the Packers-Vikes game when Aaron Rodgers was over a yard away from the defender, who made no effort to restrain himself and proceeded to jump and climb over him and viciously crush him backward into the ground, breaking his collarbone. The official showed no concern about the obvious flagrant foul and our QB paid for it by probably being out for the season. I am infuriated. The chief official should be ousted as a due and exemplary penalty. Antonio N. Monaco Chicago Rodgers is the greatest
As a lifelong Packers fan, I have seen every quarterback going back to Bart Starr. I am convinced that Aaron Rodgers is the greatest Packers quarterback of them all. Tim Eli Trenton, N.J.
