A Few Final Pre-Game Thoughts

Posted by Mike Wobschall on January 5, 2013 – 5:55 pm

Lambeau

The anticipation and build-up is nearly over. Game time is approaching. The 3rd matchup in 5 weeks between the Vikings and Packers is upon us, and this one means everything. It’s just the 2nd postseason game ever between these two clubs. It’s win or go home.

I’ll be joining the Vikings Radio Network pre-game show about 40 minutes before kickoff to help the guys preview this game. Prior to me joining the show, all the main subplots will surely be addressed. Do the Vikings have an answer for Aaron Rodgers? Do the Packers have an answer for Adrian Peterson? How will Joe Webb play as the team’s starter? So my focus will be on some of the other subplots in this game – subplots that may not be talked about as much, but will still have an impact on this game.

Here’s a sneak peak of what we’ll talk about when I join host Mike Mussman on the Vikings Radio Network…

– We saw the Vikings defensive coaching staff draw up creative game plans to defeat St. Louis and Houston. They used zone blitzes, linebacker pressures and defensive back blitzes to generate pressure on opposing passers. What can Leslie Frazier’s staff do tonight to Green Bay that represents a new wrinkle?

– A big part of the Vikings defensive effort will be Antoine Winfield’s inclusion. He will be key to defending the pass, but I think he’s a huge part of defending the run, too. The Vikings don’t want to let Green Bay run the ball. Rodgers is good enough the way it is, if Green Bay can keep the Vikings off-balance, look out.

– Matt Kalil vs. Clay Matthews. This was a good matchup last week. Whenever these two are lined up across from one another, it’s a fun one to watch. I thought Matthews had the edge early in last week’s game, but then Kalil settled down and the Vikings were able to operate without Matthews blowing things up.

– Ball control and field position important for the Vikings. The Vikings did win a shootout over this explosive Packers team last week, but I don’t expect the Vikings to initiate a shootout tonight. I think the Vikings would benefit from a lower-possession game, a game that is a battle over field position and a game in which points are at a premium.

– The Vikings kickoff and punt coverage groups leaked yardage last week. That can’t happen tonight. The Packers are good enough offensively. To give Rodgers and Co. a short field tonight will make for a long night.

– The two X-factors tonight are Everson Griffen for the Vikings and Charles Woodson for the Packers. Griffen had 3.0 sacks in last week’s win over Green Bay and he has a career-high 8.0 sacks this season. Green Bay must find a way to block him. Woodson returns to action from a broken collarbone tonight. He’s missed 9 games because of the injury, but now he’s ready to go. The guy is a future Hall of Famer, so the Vikings must be aware of him.

    Wow, what a time to lose Ponder. I know not everyone is pleased with him but he has been getting it done enough to get us where we are. I think he shows lots of promise and to me this isn’t good. Joe Webb is athletic and will add a dynamic that is hard to gameplan for but his skills as a QB have been seriously in question he is or has been a project and he hasn’t seen action this entire season so he is bound to be rusty. His first action is coming in a playoff game against one of the best teams in the game and on their turf. Our Defense and special teams needs to bring their A games for 60 minutes and our offense just needs to avoid turnovers and mistakes. I got a pit in my stomach as soon as I heard the news. No knock on Joe I love the guy he is very athletic and brings a different dimension to the game that’s hard to plan for. But he also has a lot of question marks and I wish this wasn’t the game to get those question marks answerd. I almost think Bethel may be the better option, but the coaches no better so I’ll just enjoy the ride as much as possible lol. Hopefully Vikes win at the end. Skoal

    What is she a spy? Frazier is all giddy being interviewed– but what I liked was when Frazier said we will let Ponder rest up for next week. Frazier knows this move may be a great idea.

    I wonder if there is more going on than meets the eye.

  27. By chris b on Jan 5, 2013 | Reply

    I dont think either is the long term answer. It would be good for the team if Ponder had elbow surgery in the offseason and he grew and extra muscle but he aint peterson. But this is the perfect game for webb to shine.

    Johnny, the good news is this game, in this weather, Webb might be better because Webb can run alot. I agree I think if it came down to pure passing, MBT would be an interesting option. However, this my friend, is the hand that we have been dealt.

    Go Vikings!

    Ponder and Harvin’s reputations as being injury prone need to be taken into consideration. If these two guys had been in tonight it would be a different game right now.
    Do we want to invest in these two? I don’t think Harvin is happy in MN. Trade him. I think we’re stuck with Ponder.

    Ponder had this same injury in college, being injury prone was part of his scouting report, look what happened. He missed both of his bowl games too. Shouldn’t be surprising he couldn’t show up. Webb had less than a week to prepare so Webb haters can get out of here. Let’s give him 25 starts like Ponder and see if he is still throwing for fewer than 100 yards like Ponder.

    I think Ponder took a dive. He’s a team player he reads these blogs, he knows Webb is better and he faked an injury to help the team. Now the next RG3 is on the field. Heck Webb has a stronger arm than Luck. He dented the ground on the last throw before the half.

  221. By Troutdaddy on Jan 5, 2013 | Reply

    This is why Webb has not played. He can’t throw at all- only run for his life.Loved the last throw before the have. Right into the ground 6 yards shy of the receiver. All I can say is why in the heck is Ponder not playing? For crying out loud Ponder, spray some Windex on that elbow and get out there… What a stupid way to end such a great comeback season. Sorry, but Webb is done and I would rather see MBT come in with his cannon arm and try to at least salvage something…

    SaltyDog we made it to the playoffs because of AP now we’re learning that you have to be able to throw the ball in the playoffs.

    When will the Ref’s call a game for us? Third quarter AP gets tackled by the head and on the replay you can see the Packers hands go under AP’s helmet. Where was the call. Holding calls that weren’t called. Huge mistake by Brinkley to give the Pack a touchdown. Sherels can’t field a punt. Why didn’t Webb throw the ball earlier? These are the reasons why we lost. Or like someone posted earlier the NFL is fixed. I hope Leslie makes a call to the ref’s office about that tackle on AP.

    Pakcwahck, are you trying to goad us? Not only had Manning been our QB, but if Ponder had played, your defense would have been running around like dehydrated dogs on a summer sidewalk in Phoenix.

    Hopefully people will understand now that there is a REASON webb and MBT don’t start… Ponder will come out with a chip on his shoulder next year… great season vikes, 10-6 not bad at all… Ponder keep improving, Spielman have another good draft, get a couple decent WRs, keep Wright going, keep Jenkins I guess he is alright, get Childs back, trade Harvin since he doesn’t want to be a part of this team… we can make a SB run next year.. for real!

    And I really hope you now all understand what having Ponder means to this team…that was the single biggest issue tonight.. the offense was nowhere close to what they could have been. Ponder had some tough games this year yes, but so does every young QB… I have seen enough out of him to know that if he stays focused and keeps improving, he can be an elite NFL QB… no joke…great season again…GO VIKES!!

    It’s amazing how people can be blind and make comments like fire the coaching staff when we ended the season 10-6 and went to the playoffs, that’s why this team sucked ever since Denny Green left, you can’t build a team when players and staff leave. I’d hate to be a qb for the Vikings you guys are ruthless. After today it’s clear Ponder is the QB, he had a great game last week he had the best game last week but it was the worst game of the year to miss I’m sure he didn’t want to miss it. AP says he’s going to shoot for 2500 next year, that’s 147 a game doable by APs standards.

Ponder has the skills to get it done, he has showed that already, I really don’t see what anyone has to say about him… the injury just gives the haters an excuse to hate… didn’t see you guys around here last week.

    And what happened to… oh webb is so great, he is so much better than ponder, blah blah blah? lol well I guess thats why you guys are not NFL coaches and GMs

    Sorry Titus. Your season is over. Done. We had Ponder’s number and would have rattled him and that would have been it for him because that’s “the secret” to shutting him down is to rattle his cage. Then he just simply falls apart. The guy cannot handle pressure. If I were a Viking fan, I would be very concerned about your QB situation. Zero depth and a questionable starter at best.

    Aren’t you upset with your coaches for not having your backup QB play at all this season? Look what happened. He gets thrust into a playoff game without one single pass play all season other than the walk through practices. He just might have done better if he was given some time during the season. Bizarre coaching decisions = Vikings coaches. What does Singletary do? Why is Atlanta doing so much better after they canned Musgrave?

    It’s got to be painful being a Viking fan.

    Packers did what they needed to do…stop AP. I feel bad for Webb. No practice. No game plan. I blame Frazier for saying Ponder will start all week then put the whole team in a bad situation. Webb played pretty good given the situation. Every phase was a disaster this game. Special teams, defense, offense.

    Agree Jones, we did give rodgers way too much time. But if you want to know the truth, I really think the team was half in shock after hearing Ponder would be out… we already had a young team, who was very confident in themselves and their QB after the last few weeks, knowing they could beat any team anywhere… then all of the sudden you pull the plug on the leader of the offense ( as amazing as AP is, the QB is still the leader)…. I think they lost their identity, were not comfortable, and as much as I was rooting for Webb and the team, looking back I think they had little to no chance after hearing that Ponder would not play.

    gbpkersRyoDaddy… that’s what I have been trying to tell my fellow Viking fans. Thanks for the respectful post, nice to see one from a GB fan every once in a while.

    And scratch what I said in my last post, I won’t say I think they had no chance… because there is always a chance and anything could happen, and there were still plenty of good players out there… but mentally, I just think it really changed the whole game and removed a lot of the confidence that they had, which is a HUGE factor for a young team on a role.

    But really how can you expect a guy who hasn’t thrown a pass all year, and is already a backup for a reason, to come win a playoff game on the road?

  665. By Frederick Jones on Jan 5, 2013 | Reply

    @Parkway,

    The O Line has made a lot of progress this year. If Jones did draft an OL, it would probably be a guard. But it seems that we have greater needs.

    The defense needs to be rebuilt. A linebacker, cornerback, and perhaps even a defensive tackle for that unit. (That is unless the Packers are the NFL champions this year, then we can give the defense some slack and grab the guard!!! :)

And yet you will never mention any of the good games he played at the beginning and especially the end of the year…Just because Luck and RGIII and Wilson are successful this year as rookies… that is very RARE, like very very VERY RARE, you will likely never see a rookie class like this again… normal QBs take TIME to develop, learn some patience.

  697. By Mike B. on Jan 5, 2013 | Reply

    Although I liked the No quit attitude of the Team, I think there will be some changes coming next year. I am not sure if Webb will be staying on the team. I think he has 1 more year on his rookie contract. I don’t think many teams will be looking his way after this performance, so I think he remains on the team in a back up capacity. Ponder will be the QB to beat next year for the Starting Job. They may bring in a FA QB to compete, but I am not sure. MBT may end up being the #2 guy next year with Webb #3. The offensive line was much better toward the end of the season, but I don’t think Loadholt has shown enough to be resigned. I think we need a OG and RT next year. It’s obvious we need a serious revamping of the WR core. They didn’t perform well as a group this year. I think the Defensive Secondary made great strides and the Defense over all is in good shape. I think a couple more additons to defense and we will be #1 again. Special teams we have our kicker of the future. Kluwe most of the time is good with his punts. Maybe we draft a WR that speicalizes in Returns next year. Percy Harvin, I don’t know what to say or think. If he’s just a victim of bad press, I think we need to keep him on the team. If he’a a prima donna he should be traded. IMO. FAs I would keep to a minium unless a top notch WR is availible. Coaches Fraizer has suprised me this year and should continue as head coach. DC Willians is a go. OC Musgrave I am not sold on, but that’s a Frazier decision. I like this years team they proven to have a good core of players and should be better next year with a few additions. Great Year this year lots of fun to watch. Just not this game.

    Ponder not playing was a coaches decision. He could not get the zip on the ball he needed. According to reports.
    Fraizer thought it was in the best interest of the team to play a QB who did have a dinged up arm. Not his fault Webb has not developed or learned to make reads.
    If it was up to Ponder he likely would have played.

    Can’t believe ppl still think Ponder is a starting quality QB. If you were to insert Luck or RGIII with a healthy Harvin, this team can make it to the SB with the possibility to win it but not with Ponder.

    Great season Boys! Ponder is going to be our starter for many years. We were big underdogs in this game and as soon as Ponder was scratched, I knew it was over. So many idiotic comments on here from terrible fans or Packer fans just messing with us. Those who were happy Webb was starting are absolute bafoons. Great progress this year. 8-8 would have been a success but playoffs? Are you kidding me? Amazing! Good job and congrats to the Vikings and their fans. Packers could barely beat us with our back up QB. What a joke! They will be out next game. SKOL

    You got to be kidding me purple08, I would rather take Dalton and Wilson to start on any Sunday. And they’re not even at Brady or Manning’s level but still starting quality QB.

    Ponder is backup quality at best.

    Ponder would be holding a clip board if he was on the roster of Washington, Indy, Cincinati or Seattle.

    LOL I’ve been saying it all year that Webb was a joke few people believed me. So now its time to put some talent at the WR position and let ponder do his job. Everybody talks about Luck RGIII Wilson and Dalton but they all have 1 thing that Ponder has never had, a legit receiving corps.

    It really stings that Webb had to show how terrible he is on this stage but all in all the vikings did better than I expected this year I predicted 8-8

    Honestly I love this team and I always will but some Vikings fans are so incredibly short sighted and dumb

    man i have read these posts for awhile without saying anything but i really cant stand some of the ridiculous things a few of you say…
    congrats vikings on a great season, time to look to fix a few holes to really make some noise next year….
    hope the calls for webb have finally died down, too bad the calls for ponder to be released are still around. its sad to think people out there really think he is so terrible, you must never watch any games. the guy doesnt even play today and people go to blame him for the loss…wow. love how dalton’s name is brought up…he actually looked like a slightly better webb today but he had aj green to throw to

    Ponder doesn’t have a Superbowl yet so I think it’s time to move on, blow it all up

    whats so funny is the same people calling for webb all year started calling for MBT it really shows how ignorant some people are

    heres an idea some poeple may like..lets just use all our picks every year on different qbs. every time one doesnt throw for 350yds and 3tds he gets benched and a new one steps up, throws a pick he gets released and an incompletion has to sit for the series….sound good?

    Anyone who thinks Webb played good should be punched in the face. HE IS HOPELESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There where receivers open all over the field he just didn’t pick em up. He can run it, but that’s about it.

    10-6 and making the playoffs is much improved over lasy year.Biggest key going forward is the progess Ponder makes.I hope Ponder becomes a very good QB. Webb great athelete with minimal QB skills. Great season and great draft last year. Go vikes!!!!

    So much for Webb playing good.

  732. By purplebleeder on Jan 6, 2013 | Reply

    That was an embarassment if that is the kind of product you are putting out on the field, especially Webb, he wasn’t physically or mentally prepared to play. Need I say again, he has the chance to watch and learn from Brett and Donovan and that is the kind of performance he displays on the field?
    @South Carolina, If you’re going to give anyone credit for the 10-6 season it should be AP. He single handedly put the team on his back with the opponent’s game plan to stop him. Did I mention him coming back from a very bad injury with 8-9 defenders in the box and still put up monster numbers. Keep supporting your pathetic Ponder. Until he is committed, dedicated and a student of the game rather than trying to hang out with his teammates and buy their friendship or chase girls, he will always be in the bottom five of any GM’s list on building a football team. Manning and AP are the perfect example of what it takes to be the best to compete in the NFL.

    No one respects Ponder’s passing game. 50% if not more of Ponder’s numbers is the result of AP’s threat running the ball opening up the passing game. Credit goes to Harvin also for some of the wins, catching the ball out in the flat and making some amazing runs after the catch. Some of Harvin’s kickoff returns for td was also what gave the Vikes a W in a couple games.

    If you were to insert Ponder into the starting line up of NE and Denver…Would any of those two teams be in a bye with Ponder?
    How about replacing the QBs in Indy and Washington with Ponder…Would they make the playoffs with Ponder? Enough said.

    Otto 80,

    Nobody thinks that Webb played well (use well, not “good” for proper English).

    Neither did the Vikings team play well.

    Hey…maybe there is something to that…duh!

    Trade for Kurt Cousins since he will not see too much playing time, because of RG3. He wasn’t bad when he went in for RG3.
    Needs defence takcle, saftey, and corner
    Offense WR
    Better play calls sometimes you have to work with the player you have. not trying to fit a square in a round hole effect. I think that’s what they tried to do with Webb.
    I must say to RUBE NATION if you look at the depth perspective of our roster. We have 40 out of 53 men only have five years and under playing in the NFL. This was our rebuilding year. To go out and get in the playoffs was remarkable!!
    What are your thoughts Rube Nation and SKOL VIKINGS
