Redzone Blues

Warning:  Political content.  Those who are offended by jokes at the expense of one or another political candidate need read no further.  Those who think politics shouldn’t be mixed into a sports blog, even in a jocular fashion, should go find something else to do like perhaps have sex with themselves.

The Vikings know all about lack of efficiency in the redzone – and it seems their rivals the Packers are having similar problems cashing in scoring chances.  The Pack fell 19-16 to the Titans on Sunday, partly due to a dearth of redzone success.  “It’s pretty tough,” Aaron Rodgers said after the loss. “We made a lot of plays on offense. The things we talked about early in the week, we didn’t do. We needed to score seven when we got in the red zone, and we didn’t do that. We didn’t protect the ball. I had two turnovers, so obviously that wasn’t accomplished. I was disappointed in the way I played.”

Coach Mike McCarthy blamed poor decision making for the problems.  “We had a number of minus decisions down there,” he said. “We need to do a better job of taking what the defense gives us, staying within the offense.”

I love that term, minus decisions.  I want to see that term used more often.

“So John McCain, why did you lose the election?”

“Well, we had some minus decisions.  Picking Sarah Palin as a running mate – I’d say that was all the way off the chart.  And that whole angry old white man thing.  Big time minus.”

Let’s hope the Packers fail as miserably as McCain at fixing their problems.
