At what point do we direct the accusatory finger in the direction of the defensive guru Dom Capers?
To be honest, I can deal with Peterson’s 199 yards and 2 TDs (1 receiving) vs. Green Bay but couple that with Christian Ponders 234 yards and 3….countem 3 TD passes and you have to wonder what the game plan actually was vs. the Vikings yesterday in the giant garbage bag known as the Metrodome. Ponder has thrown only 3 TD passes total in the 5 games prior to the titanic struggle in the season finale.
Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense have played above average this season, not great but above average. For the Packers to win the in the post-season, Cobb, Jennings, Nelson, Jones, Finley will have to be in sync, as one, with the ARog universe if Green Bay is to have any aspirations to venture past their divisional foe on Wild Card Weekend in the NFL next Saturday night.
The old adage is, “Defense wins you championships”. If that’s what you’re relying on, as a Packers fan, you’ll have to borrow the most famous phrase any Cubs fan continuously and repeatedly utters…..”Wait til next year”.
