With mostly unfamiliar pass-catchers filling in because of injuries, the Packers QB picked apart the Minnesota secondary.

The Packers could have put Sid Hartman, Pat Reusse and Jim Souhan at WR and they still would have been able to carve up the Vikings horrible defense. (Couldn't you see Sid put a move on Cook or Robinson?)

Rodgers makes difficult throws look effortless. He can thread the needle 25 yards downfield. Ponder has trouble hitting a guy in the numbers while he's standing perfectly still ten feet away.

We can't judge Ponder in his first year, without any training camp(2011). We can't judge Ponder until we get him some WR's or someone to throw to(2012). Is Ponder any better 3 years into his career than his 1st Pro Start? Nope. Let's not forget, last night was Ponder's best game this year! Pathetic, I know.

I'm not sure what's more enjoyable...listening to Viking fans rest there teams outcome on a wish, hope and a prayer...watching Rodgers thread the needle to Nelson, like it's a walk in the park...or watching the Viking bench with there sullen look and jaws hanging on the the greatest team on the Planet, the Packer, carve up the Vikings like a plump turkey on Thanksgiving.

Fire Spielman. Wonder if Wilfy is still handing out game day neckties. proly handing out hanging ropes. Wilf is just another rube and out of his sand box when it comes to football.The Packer game was just like the Chiefs vs Vikes years ago. Hank Stram yelling at his players "keep it up boys,this is like taking candy from a baby" and all the while Bud Grant staring into space without a clue.Some things never change.

Well, when you let Lacy run for 7/8 yards every first down and then play 8 yds off Jordy Nelson it's not hard to carve up the defense.

packer55124, the Packers aren't even the best team in the NFC (and maybe the NFC North), let alone the greatest team on the planet.

GB isn't the best team in the NFC at this moment, but they might be after getting their full arsenal back. Has to drive the Purple Eaters mad that we have had back to back great QB's which is where all great teams start.

The Packers will be doing the same thing that the Vikings will be doing in late January, sitting their butts on a couch watching someone else win the Super Bowl.

All you Vikings fans have left is hoping the Packers don't get another title. You all were saying the same things in 2010. Green Bay has an excellent chance at another SB.
