Minnesota at Green Bay (1 Viewer)

20 seconds.. and need 50+ yards for a FG.. Can the Vikings find a way to lose this, or do we get a Fun old tie? :popcorn:

 
INsane to throw again here. SHould just kneel and take the tie.

FAR FAR more likely to lose the game here than to win it

I actually like the last play call… if Minnesota couldn't afford to lose. But we could. So heave it up there and try for the big win. And blow it and we get a better traffic and GB covers for my parlay.

By the way, with the new rule where a FG on the first possession doesn't end the game, perhaps the NFL should look at extending OT to 20 minutes (or 30 minutes). Any thoughts on that? Ties are not a bad thing and player safety is on my mind too... so I probably wouldn't be in favor of that.

The OT today seemed really quick, especially after the Vikings ate up a lot of clock with the drive where they ran a lot. Then again, no excuses as a Packers fan as they should have punched it in on the first possession and had two other chances to score!

The race for Teddy or Jadeveon -- Jaguars (2-9), Houston (2-9), Atlanta (2-9) and Minnesota (2-8-1).
Sounds about right.. The only good thing there is Atlanta "probaby" wouldn't take a QB so at least right now we are 3rd in line for a new QB.. :popcorn:
Someone would trade up to get Bridgewater if ATL got the #1.

 
Didn't see this mentioned but thought GB going for a 2 pt conversion early was pretty silly. I guess they were just chasing points but another example of why I'm not a fan of going for 2 early.

It's still 25% of regulation time guaranteed… little thin compared to other sports but I still think it's fine. While that tie sucked, nobody really deserved to win that game except props to be given to Flynn and the MIN rushing game.

Atlanta has Buffalo next week and home to Washington two weeks later. Jag and Houston play each other again in two weeks. Jags play Cleaveland next week without Jason Campbell(?).

This was a bad decision. If they just take the extra point then a TD and FG wins it. What are the odds of two successful two-point conversions in a row to tie the game?

I thought this was a terrible decision when it was made and it cost them the game.

Not to mention the fact that they passed. I didn't get that when Lacy is obviously the best player on the field at that point.

Hindsight is a great thing. Go for 2 and try making it a one possession game.

The odds are probably similar to scoring two more times.

I completely disagreed with the decision when it happened. There was enough time left to win with a TD and FG.

Given how Minnesota shredded the defense to that point...and how the offense had not exactly done its job all day.

I think the odds were more in favor of two 2 point conversions over 2 more scoring drives.

Turns out different...but again...a lot of its hindsight now. Maybe not yout...but a lot of it is.

Yes it's easy to 2nd guess but I didn't think it was the right call simply because of how much time was left. So the fact I didn't like the call when it happened really isn't hindsight more a matter of philosophy/preference. Plus I stayed at a Holiday Inn last night.

Exactly. Like I said above, I thought it was the wrong decision when it was made. In hindsight, it was in fact the wrong decision and cost them a win.
