Packers Stun Vikings, Win 31-3 At Mall of America Field

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 21, 2010 – 3:51 pm

Add another item to the list of confounding and disappointing events to the Vikings 2010 season because the Green Bay Packers marched into Mall of America Field on Sunday and promptly dismantled the Vikings, winning 31-3 in convincing fashion and dealing a crippling blow to playoff hopes that remained for the Vikings entering the afternoon.

The Vikings opened the scoring with a 1st-quarter Ryan Longwell FG and took that 3-0 lead into the 2nd quarter. But from there it was all Green Bay Packers, as they virtually abandoned the running game and passed their way through the Vikings defense to 31 points. The Vikings offense didn’t have an answer and managed only 300 yards of total offense and zero points after the early FG.

Green Bay WR Greg Jennings had quite the day, hauling in 7 receptions for 152 yards and 3 TDs, while fellow WR James Jones tallied the other Packers TD. QB Aaron Rodgers was 22 of 31 for 301 yards, 4 TDs and 0 INTs, which adds up to a pristine 141.3 passer rating.

For the Vikings, QB Brett Favre was 17 of 38 for 208 yards with 0 TDs and 1 INT. RB Adrian Peterson had 72 rushing yards on 14 carries and Percy Harvin recorded 18 rushing yards on 2 tries. Harvin also added 2 receptions for 12 yards. The Vikings leading receiver was Sidney Rice, who returned from the PUP list and hauled in 3 receptions for 56 yards.

The loss is the Vikings 2nd in a row and it drops them to 3-7, a seemingly insurmountable 4 games behind both the Packers and Chicago Bears in the NFC North standings.

    It suks to be a fan whose team cannot pull on every sunday. Can any one of you answer my few questions:
    1) Will FAVRE be benched?
    2) Will CHILLY be FIRED?
    3) Will Joe WEBB gets to play?

    Season is OVER but I want my team to start playing like a TEAM for next season.

    Okay, our season is now unofficially over. Lets try to save the future. First step, coaching. Say goodbye to Childress and make Frazier the interim coach for the remainder of the season. I know he has had several interviews with other teams for a head coaching job but none of those teams seem to think he has what it takes, but we need to give him the chance to try. If he suceeds great, if not, then we need to totally clean house at the end of the season. Second step, quarterback. Favre is a has been, Rosenfels is a never was. Perhaps Jackson has the ability to become a quality starter but we will never know if he sits on the sidelines for his entire career. Let him play the rermaining games and lets find out. This organization is quickly bleeding out money and draft picks and we are jeapordizing our entire future, possibly for many years to come, on the hopes that we can assemble some type of winning combination. It is time to admit that we are on the wrong path and try something different. Even if that meens restructuring the organization and starting fresh. If we don’t do something soon the good players we do have are going to want to play elsewhere. As a lifelong Vikings fan I am embarassed by what we have become and I am confident that the remaining fan base will agree it is time for a change. Mr. Wilf needs to show his leadership and business sense now or the fans will lose their confidence in him too. I know this is a harsh statement but I beleive it is a reality we need to accept. Thanks for the opportunity to voice my opinion and Go Vikes!

    Until today’s blowout, this season has been a series of close-calls and bad bounces. This is no way for Favre to go out.
    1. Fire Chilly (not all his fault but a change has to happen)
    2. Try to talk Gruden out of retirement (or Favre’s other coaching buddy Steve Mooch)
    3. Bring Favre back for one more try and draft a top tier quarterback in the first or second round (e.g. Luck, Mallett, Lockert, Keenum, Kaepernick, Newton, Pryor) and let them develop under Brett next year.

    We could so easily be 7 and 3 right now. I want a do-over!

    The only thing that is keeping chilly here is the new 4yr, $14million contract suckered Zigy out of a year ago. Maybe, after today Wilf will decide it’s not worth it to keep Chilly around to embarrass him.

    Play the rest of the season to the best of their ability because they have nothing to lose.

    Marco said it all, new coach, new QB, and some serious talk from the owner. With the stadium issue also, I say LA is looking better, starting over sounds like a good idea because to go from 12-4 to maybe 4-12 in one year is unnerving and ridiculously inconsistent all reflective of leadership. What a sad season for the team and fans.

    As a life long Vikes fan… I hate to say it but we need to scap almost the whole team including coaches and start over. AP, Percy, and Rice are all keepers on offense. Jared, Chad Greenway, and EJ Henderson can remain the leaders of the defense. The Williams Wall is old and worn out. Without a push in the middle from our D-line, we are not getting the pass rush (and sacks) from the outside. Cook has been a major disappointment and is beaten consistently. I would rather see Webb starting for the remainder of the year to see if he has a future as QB in the NFL. Let Brett be his personal QB trainer for the remainder of the year. T-Jack is not the answer. I agree with some other posts that we need to scap all coaches including the offensive and defensive coordinators. We would love to see Gruden leading the purple in 2011. Starting to wonder if we will ever get that Superbowl in my lifetime. My 10 year old is trying to carry on the torch but he is losing hope as well. As I have said for the last 35+ years… “Next year is our year!” Go VIKES!

    Man, it’s tough to get embarassed in front of the home crowd. You guys need to dump Favre even if he decides to “unretire” yet again. The guy is uncoachable and a prima donna. Mike Holmgren was the only coach who could control him. As a Packer fan I was thrilled to see that blowout but I won’t come on your site and rub it in. Guess we’ll see you guys next year. Wonder who you’re new coach will be?

    Wow, what happened to all you viking fans, at the beginning of the year, all the talk was “super bowl” no one can stop us. Appears you put all your eggs in the Brett Favre basket, and the basket had a very rotten bottom. you CANNOT let a player such as favre set his own rules, he bas become bigger then the team, and that philosophy will never work, its why he’s no longer in green bay, he felt that none of the rules applied to him, well he and all the gb fans found out that there IS life after Favre, question is, when will the viking fans wake up and realize the same………. oh, and for Dawninwisconsin, perhaps you should switch teams……… join a winner for a change

  56. By Marko on Nov 21, 2010 | Reply

    I know a lot of you are against Frazier as a coach and Jackson as a Q.B. but I beleive they deserve their respective chances based on one word. LOYALTY. Frazier hasn’t complained or badmouthed his counterparts and he is doing the best he can with what we have. Lets face it. Our secondary need help. Cook got cooked several times today. Someone needs to tell him to at least put his arms up when the ball is coming. Winfield has turned into Losefield and the rest are average at best. This would be a good area to use our remaining draft picks for. Also, Purple Pain is correct about the Williams wall and he mentioned a lot of really good players that need to be the centerpiece of our future defense. Jackson hasn’t complained either and he deserves his shot. Webb may be a great option too but again I say LOYALTY. As far as moving to L.A. If that is what the owners are hoping for they are definately going about it the right way so watch out. Remember Norm Green?

    The team is not up to being what farve needs to win. No QB could win with this team! Name one and you would be rong. Chilly made sure of that when he let all the good players go at the beging of the year! Chilly did not want Farve though the owner did, so chilly plane to lose to show the owner who is in command.

    Larry, with a team like this, where receivers don’t always get open and a picket fence would’ve done a better job than the o-line, sometimes you just have to force the issue. That said, I wish he hadn’t done it.

    get the forks out…
    1) Chilly gone, evaluate Frazier.
    2) if Frazier doesnt look right, then find someone
    3) Bevell needs to be gone. the playcalling on O is predictable and horrible (how much influence Chilly has on this will also be of note)
    4) O line needs to be completely overhauled. left side is showing it’s age, Sully is always hurt and the right side can run or pass block for anything.
    5) TJack isnt the answer, so let’s evaluate Webb to see if he may have something, prior to the draft.
    6) only AP, Rice, Harvin and Shiancoe are secure in their spots
    7) Williams wall is done. Pat has definitely lost the ability to command double teams all the time, which is main job. Kevin gets more double teams than Pat, but cant get off them consistently. Edwards has shown why he is not an elite DE (he is always 1 on 1 and get do anything. JAllen is MIA all year….where did he go?
    8) iirc Greenway and Leber are FA’s after this season, which strips the LB corp apart. both are worth keeping if it’s up to me.
    9) Winfield is showing his age and as a result the Vikes dont appear to have 1 shut down CB. trading Sapp to MIA I still think was wrong. re-evaluation of all CBs for next year needs to happen
    10) Vikes still dont have a solid FS and SS imo. everyone on the roster imo is inconsistent and unreliable. at this point I would like at least one S position solidified, so the defense could compensate for the other and protect it. right now the FS and SS spots have no one that steps forward and commands respect from an opposing offense
    11) only JAllen (needs to seriously re-apply himself), K Williams, EJ, Greenway, Winfield (in the nickel slot) are secure on the roster
    12) Kluwe and Longwell are both still good for next year
    13) everyone else on the roster going forward needs to play for their roster spot next year, because they haven’t done jacks**t to show they should be wearing the purple/gold this year
    14) 2011 draft needs – OL (everything), QB, WR (#3), DT, DE, OLB, CB, FS, SS

The rest of this season are preseason games for next year. Play both T.jack and Webb (alternating halves) the remaining games and then evaluate them for a starter next year.

    I really thought Favre should’ve stayed at home. He was beat up and i bet he’ll be even more beat up after this year than he was after last year. If he really wanted to play, he would’ve came back on his own. This season has only hurt him, his legacy and this team. I never agreed with childress’ decision to go down to mississippi and beg favre to come back… Should’ve let the man decide for himself what he wanted to do. And now he doesn’t have the b@lls to stand up to favre and bench him…. I don’t think brett has ever played this poorly ever in his career. its just sad that his worst year happens to b his last…

    Why is anyone surprised at today’s score? All Favre has done against teams with a winning record this year is come up with the WORST QB rating in the entire league. Once again he is true to form with a 51 QB rating today.

    As a Vikings fan who wants to see “wins”, T-Jack will obviously peform WAY better than Favre. As a result, if T-Jack starts he’ll win out the rest of the season, because the team will play much harder for him than an egotistical, selfish, lazy, perverted Favre. On the other hand, if Favre starts we’re guaranteed to get the same awful performance we’ve seen all year, which means the Vikings will lose their remaining games. The only up side of losing our remaining games with Favre is a high draft pick so we can get a stud defensive pass rushing end (and get rid of either Edwards or Allen or both!).

    Go Vikes!

    As a lifelong Packer fan I was very happy with the out come of the game. I did not want to see a blow out just a good game with the Pack winning. I hope that you do not fire the coach as I think he make a great 13 th. player for the other team. I hav always been a Bret fan and did not want to see him have this kind of game or season. I wish he would have stayed retired as I did not want to see him go out like this. I just hope that the rest of the season goes better for him. I am looking foward to the day that the Pack retires his number and it will happen as they are a class act. As for one of the other comments about him going into the Hall Of Fame as a Jet or Viking will not happen. This man has too much respect for the Packers and their fans. Last year he was your hero and now all are ready to hane him. Right now non of the Vikings are playng, it looks like the entire team has goven up and stoped playing.

    Mrsmiff, we could possibly win 2 or 3 games with Favre but that is not the point. Even the most optomistic fan needs a reality check and realize that we are NOT going to make the playoffs. Lets see what some of the other players have, heck, get Webb in there some to get his feet wet. We should of drafted a quarterback this year but they didn’t want to hurt Favres feelings.

    I disagree with you on that Just Win. I think that Favre gives the vikings the best chance to win, it’s just that he has played horribly this year. Jackson probably wouldn’t have done any better but he would’ve at least gained some experience if he had played. And i don’t think the guys will play any harder for jackson than they would for favre. Why do u think they went back to get Favre? And we have way more issues at other spots on the roster. Drafting a good DE is not even a priority for us the next draft. We have bigger problems at CB and both safeties and at qb. Our DE’s just aren’t playing well this season for reasons that are unknown…. I think they should go out and get Kolb versus using our 1st round draft pick on a qb. Then we wont have to waste a year developing a qb.

    javabjk apparently you haven’t seen any of the games the vikings have played this year. If your team was doing all these stupid things. You would probably be cursing your team out also. On you comment about cal being the best place for them. They are trying to lose, so they can move there. You would be mad at this team, if they were purposely trying to leave your state.

    i guess it is all favre’s fault that the oline does not block for anyone. the dline cant pressure the cb’s stink. we never try to strip a ball and we cant make an interception when it hits us in the chest. thats all favre’s fault I guess. if anything favre, ap, greenway, ej,percy look to me like the only ones bringing their A game. Loadholt got beat by a safety today. thats horrible! we need some different coaching style for the oline. we need to speed up the offense and pray for the defense. Favre is not having a great year by any means but at least he is playing hard and trying to make plays. I bet about half his int’s are deflections from his receivers not catching the ball. Go Vikes. Maybe Favre comesback one more year and we can get it together next year. Hey Moss will be free agent at end of year might be able to get him again and keep him under control with new coaching.

Somebody in the front office should step up,kick Childress to the curb, and put Farve in the same taxi out of town. This season is over, time to let the back-up QB’S try out for the job next season. You have to let them get some game time experience. Your hurting their careers letting them watch Farve. Time for your family to man up. Hold the door open forthe both of them. TONIGHT

    We also have to give every player the boot and rebuild this team. When I mean everyone, I mean everyone also. almost every player on this team gave up. This isn’t the vikings anymore. in my eyes, they are defiantly The minnesota viqueens. Until I see they actually have honor, passion, and the mentality to never give up. They are The Minnesota VIQUEENS, from this day forward.

    Farve needs to step up and tell the coach that he will take the back seat for the rest of the season. Give T Jack and Webb a chance. If Chilly is still our coach next week (which I hope he isn’t) the best thing he could do is bench Farve but I think that Farve needs to MAN UP and quit being a F ing cry baby and and take the back seat for the rest of the year.

    well, I’m at a loss for words. I never saw the game ending up like that. I knew the Packers might win, but not the way they did. I had to get out of the house after the game so I wouldn’t sit around and mope. I went to see the movie “Unstoppable” (which I highly recommend) to get my mind off of things and remind myself that “it’s just a game.” but it’s hard when we had a year like last year and then pretty much the opposite happens this season. I know some people are going to slam the players and say they’re terrible, but I feel bad for them. It’s got to be hard to get back to practice and watching film when nothing is going right for them. It’s got to be mentally challenging. I’ll stand by my team no matter what, but to say I’m disappointed is an understatement.

    If any one of the Vikings were “stunned by the loss” they need a therapy in a hurry. They haven’t done what it takes all year and they hate childress. This team needs a strong leader instead of a scared little boy. Fire childress now! Again the Vikings failed to establish the run. And if any of you think that letting the score dictate whether or not you run the ball, you should go the way of childress. A great team finds a way to play to their strengths while adjusting to the other team. We have Adrian Peterson!!*** We must run the ball. Especially when Favre can’t throw an accurate ball. Any real football fan knows you win with defense and punding the ball down people’s throats to wear them down and THEN set up chilly/s little tricks. Wake the F*ck up VIKINGS!!

    You had a great year last year when a stupid assistant coach couldn’t count the players. Penalty moved them out of field goal range and Brett couldn’t perform another miracle and get back the yards. Then the whole team lost in overtime. You should be the defending Super Bowl champs. Brett had 1 last great 400 yard game this year and is trying to do too much with too little talent around him. He is not the problem. Take him out and see how really bad the team is but don’t ask the warrior to quit. He’s taken killer shots to his arms, legs, back and head but he’d spit the ball five yards if that’s all he had left. There’s no quit in him and that deserves the respect of all real football fans.

    Thanks Brett. You are the ultimate Packer Your decision to go to the Vikings may turn out to be the your greatest thing you have done for the Packers.

    The problem is not the QB. It was chilly boy letting go of the good players in favor for his boys. Did anyone notice how happy chilly was when he thought brett was not coming back and his boy would play? I will not call them men. They can not play like the 1960′s players, they where men.

    Until today’s blowout, this season has been a series of close-calls and bad bounces. This is no way for Favre to go out.
    1. Fire Chilly (not all his fault but a change has to happen)
    2. Try to talk Gruden out of retirement (or Favre’s other coaching buddy Steve Mooch)
    3. Bring Favre back for one more try and draft a top tier quarterback in the first or second round (e.g. Luck, Mallett, Lockert, Keenum, Kaepernick, Newton, Pryor) and let them develop under Brett next year.

    We could so easily be 7 and 3 right now. I want a do-over!

    I AGREE WITH THIS COMMENT…However we will end up losing alot of players next year and there is NO WAY IN H3LL BRETT COMES BACK….SO LETS GET THE YOUNG WEBB IN NOW AND SEE WHAT HE CAN DO.

    Okay, so that was a really ugly loss. I know it’s hard when a teams record isn’t what was expected, but the boos aren’t helping anything. I’m not a big fan of Chilly’s either, but I didn’t care for the Fire Chilly cheer during the game. Everyone has suggestions on how to make this team better, when reality is, all we need is for the players we have to play harder! Favre is still who we need at QB, with a lot of help from the WR’s and the O line. Defense needs to get aggressive on all areas, rip that dang ball out of someones hands, and get some interceptions in your own! Tackle, pass rush, and please – don’t play giving them so much cushion, it’s too late by then! We have a bunch of games left on the schedule so let’s stick together and finish the season with pride. Let’s show the media and Vikings bashers that we CAN DO IT! Go Vikes!~~~~

    As bad as we all may feel over this horrific loss, I can only imagine what Brett must be thinking and how he must be feeling. 3-7. 17 picks, some of which is not his fault. His marriage possibly in trouble. National derison and mockery. Body battered and beaten. Ankle reinjured. And now his former team has come into the Metrodome and stuck a 31-point fork in his heart. This was not what he came back for. He may put on a brave face for his presser, but I bet he’s crying himself to sleep tonight. As a Viking fan, I am angry, embarassed and hurt by this loss. BUT I WILL NOT PILE ON BRETT. I instead will offer words of comfort and kindness. Brett, no matter what happens for the rest of the season, I still think you are one of the best qbs of all time, and you always will be. You don’t deserve to go out lke this. I hope it all works out. Rest well.

    @xVike,
    Once again people like you just base your decisions on personal feelings NOT FACTS. Get Kolb instead of T-Jack? Sure if you want to have a losing season every year! Here’s a few other FACTS:

    (1) T-Jack has a much better win/loss record than your boy Kolb.
    (2) T-Jack’s career QB rating is 1 point better than your boy Kolb.
    (3) T-Jack’s QB rating has been going up each and every year while your boy Kolb is leveling off and actually has dropped a bit from last year.

    Go T-Jack! Go Vikes!
