It's Fu** The Queens Week

Of course, this will create a QB controversy over a player who hasn't seen the field since 2015. And yes, I could see the Vikings starting him in a few weeks with more rust then the Tin Man..

Sam Bradford re-aggravated the injury to his left knee in Week 5 and there is no word on the amount of time he could miss. Things get interesting for the Vikings quarterback situation after Week 6 when Teddy Bridgewater is eligible to come off the PUP list. If Bradford's injury doesn't keep him out that long, Minnesota could have two starting QBs going through practice.

I must confess I liked Jerry Burns....he was fun.

But wait there is more! The Whizzanator, Staubach's hail Mary, Herschel Walker trade, not putting a draft pick in, and passing on Rodgers not once but TWICE. 

And the last time they made the Super Bowl?  The following happened in 1977

Gerald Ford was still president at the time of the Super Bow.  Yes Gerald Ford.  There have been what 7 presidents since then?

It would be just like Minn to rush them both back and then lose them to injury in the same game.

There is a max amount of games that you can be on prime time, I think it is 4 or 5, packers gotta to be close to that number. Probably a De-toliet game later maybe?

I guess it depends on where you live (local team?) and the flex.
In the PHX market I had to go to my Packer bar only twice last season and not at all so far this season.

Bradford not ruled out for GB this week. Please put the gimp in:

Bradford looked uncomfortable from the opening play and was limping noticeably by the time he gave way to Keenum. Sugarman said Bradford "obviously aggravated" the knee at some point during the game and pushed back strongly on suggestions that Bradford was not healthy enough to play in the first place.

"We would never put a player on the field that we thought could not protect himself," Sugarman said. "... These issues are very difficult to manage and to treat. ... We were all on the same page with, 'Should Sam play or should Sam not play?'"

Sugarman said Bradford does not have ligament damage and is not dealing with a bone bruise "from a direct hit." He did not mention whether there are cartilage issues, but noted that that Bradford has had the ACL in that knee repaired twice in his career.

When pressed if there is a medical diagnosis beyond "wear and tear," Sugarman demurred.

"I'm just going to stay with that," he said.

Only thing that scares me about Minny is the pass rush. Griffin and Hunter might be the best combo we face all year, if they can be kept in check then Rodgers should cruise to a lot of points. I expect a heavy dose of running since MM and AR have a RB they have some degree of confidence in.

I hope Bradford plays.

I can see the Vikings playing their guts out this week.

Hopefully Rodgers solves Zimmers defense. He always seems to have some issues with it.

I feel the same way about Rodgers and I worry a little bit about them going on the road to play them.  It would be the ultimate trap/let down game after beating the Cowboys.

Look for the minnesota pass rush to be offsides a lot. Whether it is called that way, is another matter. In the Bears game, the Gruden commented that Griffen is offsides a lot, so we'll see if the refs are going to do their jobs.  vikings' safety,Trae Waynes, cannot cover anyone without holding them. We need to put pressure on whatever QB they limp onto the field. Keenan felt pressured a lot by Akim Hicks and Company and they nailed Bradford, in the end zone, for a safety. Minnesota even pulled an Aaron Rodgers when they hurried the snap while Da Bears had 12 men on the field. We need our DBs to cover their receivers like a blanket. Hopefully, our pass rush will stop their passing game behind the LOS. We need everyone on our O Line to cover their gaps and protect Rodgers on every play. Other than that, I say GO PACK, GO!

I have enough respect for the Vikings defense that I certainly expect a tough game.  That said, with no Dalvin Cook, and with their QB situation in flux, the Pack certainly has a good shot at this one.

The injury bug seems to have subsided a little bit for the Pack, let's just hope it doesn't rear its' ugly head on the Vikings turf that ended Dalvin Cook's season.  That might be the bigger concern than getting a win or loss here... just get out of that craphole without anyone getting seriously hurt is a victory in its' own right.

Found on the internet: Diggs had just one reception for four yards on four targets in Monday's win over Chicago as he struggled with a groin injury during the game.

Diggs left the game due to a groin injury and was being worked on by trainers for a long stretch of the game. He played 50 snaps on offense, compared to 68 for Adam Thielen, according to Pro Football Focus. He was able to finish the game on offense, so hopefully that indicates this is a minor issue.
