From Packers news
Mike McCarthy needs to blame himself for the loss. The Packers were ill prepared to handle the Vikings front seven to the point they had no answer the entire game. It couldnt have been more evident than with first-and-10 at the Vikings 40-yard line in the final two minutes when the Packers appeared content or scared to settle for the long game-winning field-goal attempt that failed. McCarthys challenge on the ruling that Peterson was down on the half yard line wouldnt have benefited the Packers even if it was overruled. Stopping a team from a half yard that you had already given up more than 220 yards rushing wasnt plausible. All it would have done was take more time off the clock. As it was, he threw away a timeout. Being the most penalized team in the NFL (yardage) again is a reflection on how poorly McCarthy has coached this season. The 80 yards on 10 penalties again crippled the Packers on offense, defense and special teams.
The Packers are a product of continual mental and physical mistakes with the glaring inability to stop any rushing attack. With a handful of plays the last two weeks, the Packers could have beaten the lone perfect team in the NFL in Tennessee and delivered a knockout punch to Minnesota. But Green Bay (4-5) heads home next week to face Chicago (5-4), which is tied atop the division with Minnesota (5-4), in a must game if the Packers want to maintain any hopes of a playoff berth. If the Packers do lose, they are facing a potential losing season just one season removed from reaching the NFC championship game.
Why throw that challenge? If your trying to lose you throw that red flag there. Why play for a 52 yard FG? That last drive was terrible if not for that freak tip ball catch driver made it was nothing. This is what i suspected, they want to be able to lose these games and they have just the qb and and pathetic run defense to do it with. If ever there was a coach who threw or ineptly lost a game it had to be today. If he is really trying to win, then he is absolutely inept and if TT is really trying to build a winner he is inept also. The big question and key word is IF?

On the bright side, if there is one, Nick Collins has continued his stellar play. Another pick six, and he laid the wood on Shiancoe the TE that one time...I think he's officially the real deal.
Woodson and Tramon Williams also had great pics...these 3 guys have been outstanding, and I wish we had other guys on the team like them.
Will Blackmon finally took another to the house and almost took that last kickoff all the way back...he gave them a very good chance to win that game with that last return.
