Rodgers completed his first 10 passes, had an ideal passer rating (158.3) through one-quarter and three touchdown passes over the first 23 minutes of the contest as the Packers built up a 21-6 advantage against a team not exactly equipped to win a shoot-out.
"I felt like regardless of how our defense was playing, if we could set the tone offensively, vis-a-vis it would help out the defense, give them a little confidence when they took they field that they're not behind or against the field position every single time, as they were many times in that four-game stretch". And the one thing about it is, Xavier, Terence, these guys are as good a people as there is in the world. And they've scored 10 or fewer points in three consecutive games for the first time since 1966 when John McCormick and Max Choboian split duties under center. They study, and they're really good kids. "I think you're seeing more of a flow to our offense, and it ultimately comes down to Jordy's execution".
Did Zimmer say anything to him during the game? "But there's times when [Rhodes] goes to [Nelson's] side, there's times when he doesn't", Zimmer said.
Rhodes allowed Newman to do what he wanted, and Zimmer confronted Rhodes on the sidelines.
"Everything was a miscommunication", Rhodes said. We handled it after the first series.
The rejuvenated Green Bay Packers have been fighting for their postseason lives for a month, with great success. Those were Nelson's NFL-leading 13th and 14th touchdowns on the season, as he completed with a team-leading 154 yards on nine catches. You would also think this would put a serious kibosh on any plans the team might have had to bring Newman back for next season, though at age 38 it's possible that he could opt to retire anyway.
"I said, 'We can cover this guy.' I didn't say, 'Hey, let me cover him the whole game.' I didn't say anything like that", Newman said.
This is why you're supposed to listen to your coaches!
Because as it turns out, spending an extra five hours on an ice-covered runway was a heck of a lot more enjoyable than trying to stop Aaron Rodgers. The Packers had Nelson in the slot, where Rhodes never shadows receivers, during the second series of the game, as well as on his 48-yard reception on the first play of the Packers' third series. On the other, in the final half-minute of the first half, Crosby hit a short, high ball that one of the wedge blockers, tight end David Morgan, returned only to the Vikings' 29.
Terence Newman said it was a non-issue.
"As I mentioned in my previous story about this, Newman is someone that's been with Mike Zimmer at all of his National Football League stops". "After the season, I'm going to sit down and evaluate everything, not just the players and not just the evaluations that we do on players, but everything - myself included".

Although everyone pretty much had the same agenda the day before Christmas, some say it was the deals they were after. But a late rush isn't expected to make up the difference. "It's a yearlong investment for the consumer".
In a year filled with boring football games, the Chiefs and Broncos have now given us two games we won't forget. There are ways you do things, I think, and I wouldn't have called the play at that point in time.
