Get used to this
Today's loss to the Vikings doesn't hurt quite as much as the feeling after the loss in the NFC Championship game pictured here, but it's still tough to swallow. And we'll be seeing a lot more of this for the rest of the season if the Packers, or maybe more specifically Ted Thompson, can't find a way to shore up this collapsed run defense. Our opponents have us figured out, they know the formula for beating this team. Just keep running the ball and play defense. If it's close at the end just make sure you have the last possession and run it down their throats for the win. It sounds too simple, but that is how the defense is getting played lately even while consistently generating turnovers. In terms of close games that end in heartbreaking losses yet to be experienced this season I fear this is but the tip of the iceberg.
