Monday Night Football Week One Live-Blog: Vikings-Packers 1st Half

Monday, September 08, 2008


Who: Vikings at Packers
Where: Lambeau Field
Spreads: Packers -2, O/U 37.5 and Broncos -3 O/U 41
Announcers: Mike Tirico, Ron Jaworski and Tony Kornheiser

Well MNF is finally back on-air and I couldn't be happier to be bringing you yet another season of live-blogs. Comment early and comment often because this is a full interactive website. Say something that makes us laugh or provide me with some announcer quotes and you'll say your name in this space. It's that easy!

The kickoff is coming up and we'll get things going with the Vikings and Packers soon....

"Brett Favre number four, he was a three time MVP, the only one in the league. How about this? Four times three equals twelve, Aaron Rodgers number."- Stu Scott
"Well you gotta remember what I used to see sixteen minus eight equals zero."- Steve Young

AA, I hope you got that exchange on Count Down b/w Stu, Steve and Emmitt. It started out with Stu talking about Tarvais Jackson "between the ears". It was a strange segment. (Via Anon)

I have it recorded, so it very well might be the MNF Video of the Day tomorrow. I can't wait to see it though.

"Steve, I couldn't agree, uh, I couldn't disagree with you if I wanted to."- Emmitt who then immediately disagrees with him

"Hi Brett, Hi Diana."- Mike Tirico

Emmitt is already in midseason form! (Via Anon)

Seriously. Those thoughts just don't seem to put themselves together in the right order do they?

7:08- Whooo! It appears the new Metallica album is our bumper music for the night and that couldn't make me happier. The first three songs released are pretty badass.

Hank Williams wants you "really" ready for Monday Night Football. So demanding...geesh. Here comes the kickoff. Packers get the ball first and we'll get to see Aaron Rodgers right away. Jordy Nelson brings it out to the 28 and we're underway...

Oh great a Sara Palin reference (
Via Anon)


"I call this the great gamble of the 2008 season. It's like John McCain picking Sarah Palin."- Tony Kornheiser

Ugh...here we go. Rodgers completes a few passes and the Pack is already approaching midfield and right on cue there's a holding penalty on Clifton. I really really like the no graphics at the top of the screen, but it's going to take awhile getting used to.

Jared Allen with a Family Guy reference...nice. FUMBLE! Rodgers drops the snap but gets it back. Oh man...on the next play Rodgers gets drilled into the ground after the whistle but no flag. That drive stalled out quickly and hey....a Derrick Frost sighting! That leads us to our first commercial break.

Hey, get ready to see this damn Brett Farve Wrangler Jeans commercial ALL night tonight. You could make up a drinking game off it and be plastered by halftime. (Via Lammy742)

The O/U is officially set at 14.

7:19- Man it's loud at Lambeau tonight. Peterson picks up 3 on his first carry which is followed by a Jackson scramble for two. Back to the graphics. I'd really appreciate a down and distance somewhere other than on the field, ESPN....thanks! Jackson runs again and picks up a first.

"I like to see a quarterback take a run option when nothing else is available."- Ron Jaworski
"That's because you couldn't run."- Tony Kornheiser

First, what the heck is Jared Allen wearing on his head? Second, did he just intro one of his teammates as "Ray 'When I'm Not Playing, I'm Enjoying a Bubble Bath' Edwards"? File that under Too Much Information. (Via Mal)

Nick Barnett follows him with the longest lineup intro ever and while he's doing that Chester Taylor gets another Vikings first down.

"Last year he was the Rookie of the Year and he went over a million yards like nine times."- Tony Kornheiser channeling his inner 12-year old girl

Jackson goes down on a sack from Aaron Kampman and Guitar Hero star Chris Kluwe punts it back to the Packers. Timeout.

7:29- "He sits and listen when people like me talk about him."- Tony Kornheiser
"Especially you talking about him."- Ron Jaworski
"I know nothing!"- Tony Kornheiser

Fumble! Jackson loses the ball butt it bounces directly to Greg Jennings who gets a first down. The Umpire gets rundown and there's a 12-men in the huddle penalty on the Packers to boot. That was fun. 1st and 25 now. No wait....another penalty on the Packers. Make that 1st and 33 after a hold.

"If they go any further back they'll be in Michigan."- Tony Kornheiser

After a run and a great play by Ced Griffin on a WR Screen and it's only 3rd and 28 now. And there goes the drive. Another punt.

You should keep a tally of how many times Brett Favre is mentioned tonight. Just including the game (not pregame), I think I've heard about 4 references to him. (Perhaps another idea for a drinking game?) (Via Jay)

Approved!

OK - if the Three Stooges keep thinking about What Would Favre Do (WWFD) on every play, then should we wonder what call Cosell or Michels would make? Give it a rest fellas. (Via Mal)

Also approved.

7:38- PETERSON JUST DESTROYS AL HARRIS ON A RUN!!! Whoooo and he gets to the corner on the next play! 35 yarder!!! Man he is fun to watch. Taylor gets another chance and even more yardage gained on the Packers via the ground.

And that's the end of the first quarter.....0-0.

And Jacobs just flattens Carlos Rogers again....oh wait, it's AP over Al Harris. (Via SS)

Haha. Thanks for reminding me...a-hole! Tirico talks about his radio show, which is slowly becoming a weekly feature, and here's a FG attempt for the Vikings....

Good. 3-0 Vikings, 13:35 to go in the 2nd.

7:50- Green Bay ball on the 30 to start the drive. Brett Favre tribute.....DRINK!

RODGERS GOING DEEP! Jennings got it!!! 56 yarder down to the Vikings' six. That was a heck of a throw young man and of course the booth immediately says it was Favre'esqe. Apparently "Less is More" actually means "Hammer Stories To Death". 2nd and goal and Rodgers is dropped for a sack....wait flag....defensive holding.

1st and goal now from the one. Grant goes nowhere and we've got another flag. Offsides and man does that ref have one hell of a lisp. More Jaws and Tony bantering and Grant gets blasted again. Hey Packers, breaking news....the Vikings are pretty good up the middle, or so I've been told. Another run, this time to the right and Grant almost gets in. 3rd and Goal....Rodgers scrambles....

Touchdown Packers! Rodgers to Hall on a fadeaway. 7-3 Packers, 10 minutes left to go.

"That's exactly the kind of pass Favre would have thrown. Does it remind you of him at all?"- Tony Kornheiser
"Yes, but you've got to let it go, Tony."- Ron Jaworski

Seriously. He's really driving me crazy and I think he's doing it on purpose.

7:59- What's with all the flags? Does Donaghy have the under on this game or something? (Via Mal)
I didn't see this many flags at the Olympics. (Via Anon)

It's really out of control tonight. That's five for each team so far.

"Gonna throw down here...Oh boy....TOUCHDOWN! COREY HALL!" - Mike Tirico

That's the 1st time I heard "oh boy" as a quarterback is scrambling. (Via J Fein)

Good catch. He was out of his seat on that call. Vikings ball at their own 20 and Jackson throws it away on first down. A run for a yard and it's 3rd and 9. Jackson to Berrian deep....incomplete, but there's more laundry on the field. Pass interference and the ball goes all the way out to the 50. Jackson up to again! Incomplete though.

He's just Favring it all over the field tonight. Sorry, I was channeling my inner-Kornheiser. Vikings getting ready to punt again after a nice play from Bigby.

"It's all about penetration." - Ron Jaworski (Via SS Reporters)

Damn straight it is, Ron! Wait.....so there's ANOTHER game tonight??? Why didn't anyone tell me?!?

8:09- Ryan Grant breaks one for twenty and Ron Jaworski promptly discusses the Rodgers throw from fifteen minutes ago. I'm pretty sure someone told Tony to cool it with the Favre stuff because he's been silent for about 5 minutes now.

Wait, sorry....back to the "gamble" speech again about Rodgers. Driver gets a nice pass from #12 and the Packers are rolling now. Tony and Ron start arguing about the Favre decision by reciting their script from the preseason.

Crosby hits a 42-yarder and it's 10-3 with 3 minutes to play.

8:19- Are these ten-minute commercial breaks the way for ESPN to make up for not turning a football game into Oprah in the 3rd quarter? (Via Hollywood Wags)

Yeah they do seem longer this year. Jackson throwing deep to Berrian again and wow....Berrian got mugged and no call. 3rd and short and the Vikings don't pick it up. I'd go for it, but they're punting....2 minute warning hits first though.

Brett Favre, Brett Favre, Brett Favre, Brett Favre, Brett Favre, Brett Favre, Brett Favre, Brett Favre, Brett Favre, Brett Favre, Brett Favre, Brett Favre, Brett Favre and Brett Favre.

Rodgers and the Packers go on the attack again. Incomplete on first down, nowhere on second but a first down on third down. Rodgers hits Jennings again and calls timeout. Ball at the Minnesota 36. Rodgers scrambles for twenty one and the place goes crazy. Great decision there. 1st down and Rodgers throws the ball away....well no....it's caught somehow but out of bounds. There's a penalty anyway.

"He looks like Jack Black, only bigger."- Tony Kornheiser

His pop culture knowledge knows no bounds! Green Bay throws a screen and then wussilly lets the clock rundown for a FG which is subsequently blocked by the Vikings.

10-3 Vikings at the Half and I'll see you momentarily in a new thread.

Here's my prediction, the Vikes are going to win a low scoring snooze fest like 13-3 and everyone's going to be yapping about how good their defense is but it's only going to be because Rodgers sucks so bad. Then next week the Vikes will get blown out by the Colts.

Why in the world can't Monday Night Football get their scoreboard just like it is with college football and basketball? What a joke. The scoreboard takes up so much space on my screen.

And Campbell is already chirping about how is future is at OT.

I'll be happy with 10th the way they've been playing. Hard to believe Levy let 60 goals walk out the door and thought the club could get on.

BTW, I'm interested to see how the Old Trafford faithful react when they realize Berbatov is a more brilliant version of Anelka. Better skills, same attitude.
