No Passing Game

If you were expecting today’s game to become a high-flying shootout…forget it, at least so far.  Aaron Rodgers is 9/15 for 91 yards at the half, and has been personally responsible for two safeties, the second coming when he stood in the endzone like a statue and let Jared Allen sack him from behind (sometimes Rodgers reminds us that he hasn’t played much).  Meanwhile, Gus Frerotte is having possibly his worst game of the season – 7/15 for 47 yards, 1 TD and 2 INTs.  Both were legitimate interceptions – not tipped balls or anything you might be able to make an excuse for.  They were bad throws.  The second one came when the Vikes had the option of running out the half, and allowed the Packers to drive down for a field goal.  The Vikings are winning 14-10 at the half because their defense has been making big plays, and because Adrian Peterson has 80 yards and has broken a couple of semi-big runs.
