Matt LaFleur called a great game, and an analytically sound game.
2020 Week 1: Packers at Vikings
The mercurial receiver perfectly fulfilled his role in the offensive explosion
He didn’t see any targets in the passing game, but it’s clear the Packers like Big Bob as an all-around tight end.
Would they be a run-first team? Would the receivers be good enough? Does Aaron Rodgers still have it? How far would they regress after a flukey 13-3 year? With an impressive Week 1 win over the rival Vikings, the Packers asked "Any questions?"
The Packers are down to six offensive linemen for the rest of the game.
Two Packers starters won’t play in the second half today.
Rodgers’ second TD pass of the half suggests that the Packers have their legitimate deep threat again.
Rodgers’ pocket presence and impressive arm extended the Packers’ lead shortly before the half.
Mike Pettine dialed up a great call with the Vikings backed up near their own goal line.
Matt LaFleur alluded to it previously, but the Packers are shuffling the deck on the line instead of simply plugging in a replacement for Billy Turner.
Turner’s status had been uncertain leading up to kickoff, leaving the Packers with questions on the right side of the offensive line.
The Packers may be missing their presumed starter at right tackle.
In the second part of our chat with the Daily Norseman’s Eric Thompson, we talked about the Vikings offense and how things could look a bit different under new OC Gary Kubiak
In the first part of a two-part discussion with Eric Thompson of the Daily Norseman, we learn about the still-potent Vikings defense.
Minnesota couldn’t cover Davante Adams or stop Aaron Jones last year. Now, without key personnel from last year, the Vikings defense appears even less equipped to stop them. Matt LaFleur and Aaron Rodgers must decide how much they want to change from a gameplan that worked twice last season.
Turner is the leading candidate to start at right tackle this Sunday.
