Everybody has a bad game. I'm a little concerned about some of the calls Roman made, though. Fangio sucked today, too.
The vikes beat us at our own game plan.....run out the clock so the other team doesn't get a chance and play D. When teams do that against us, we'll be in alot of trouble.
Agreed, and this is why the team needs to adjust accordingly to different styles of play. Against a team like GB, where you know Rodgers is dangerous and can score at will, it makes sense to hold the ball and play methodically. Suffocate the opponent into submission by virtue of bleeding the clock.
But against a team like Minnesota, you cant always rely on a slow methodical kill, especially when said team is playing the same game. Today the Vikings used our gameplan against us. They bled the clock out, and forced the team to "open" up offensively, something we're not accustomed to. All of a sudden, it looked like our offense was a chicken with its head cut off -- no deep passes, dinks and dunks and runs with clock running out.
Poor coaching all around, IMO.
