While Mahomes and Rodgers rallied, Kirk Cousins misses a chance for a clutch Vikings moment

Photo credit: Anthony Soufflé, Star Tribune There are few tools more useful in the tradition of quarterback mythmaking — that act of casting a passer as some type of John Wayne-esque alpha male who keeps his cool when the stakes are highest — than the game-winning drive. Joe Montana built his legacy on pristine statistics (11 TDs and zero interceptions in Super Bowls) and tales of his unflappability (as the 49ers were about to begin their game-winning march in Super Bowl XXIII, Montana, as the s...

When ABBA Wrote Music for the Cold War-Themed Musical, Chess: “One of the Best Rock Scores Ever Produced for the Theatre” (1984)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MfalfT1Iqmg Chess is amazing. The simplicity of its characters and plot (capture the king!) can be appreciated and understood by children; the complexity of its tactics can consume an adult life. Despite its medieval origins—and stumpers for us moderns like the strategic importance of a bishop on the battlefield—chess remains as much a potent allegory for power and its tactics as it was 1,500 years ago in India when it was called “chaturanga.”  The game ha...

Rodgers Leads Packers Past Undermanned 49ers, 34-17

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — Aaron Rodgers threw for 305 yards and four touchdowns and the Green Bay Packers overwhelmed the undermanned San Francisco 49ers 34-17 on Thursday night. Rodgers connected on deep shots to Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and a short toss to Marcedes Lewis in the first half to get the Packers (6-2) out to a 21-3 lead over the Niners (4-5). It was quite a reversal from the two meetings last season when San Francisco outscored Green Bay by a combined 50-0...

Film review: How the Vikings defense adjusted to upset Packers in rematch

Mike Zimmer didn't bank on the wind. Nearly two months after the Vikings defense was torched by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, with Zimmer often calling for single-high safety coverages that helped expose young corners, they brought a different approach to Lambeau Field during Sunday's 28-22 win. Even with up to 40 mile-per-hour wind gusts challenging throws, the Vikings seemingly deployed more conservative coverages with safeties Harrison Smith and Anthony Harris spending more time away fro...

Rodgers criticises the portrayal of British managers claiming he will be deemed ‘lucky’ for victory over Leeds

British perception Brendan Rodgers’ side tactically outclassed a toothless Leeds United squad at Elland Road. Leicester City were dominant and despite their injury-ravaged squad, were able to show quality throughout their side. However, coach Rodgers feels he and his side will not get the credit. After the match, the Northern Irish coach criticised the perception of British coaches. “Because I’m a British manager, I got lucky, that’s the way it works in these games. But the players were brillia...

Blocking for Dalvin Cook in Green Bay, the Vikings' offensive line was in its element

Welcome to our morning-after Vikings blog, where we'll revisit every game by looking at two players who stood out, two concerns for the team, two trends to watch and one big question. Here we go: After a nine-draft stretch where they only selected two offensive linemen in the first two rounds (Phil Loadholt in 2009 and Matt Khalil in 2012), the Vikings changed course in 2018 and began devoting higher draft picks to the group in front of Kirk Cousins and Dalvin Cook. They selected tackle Brian O'...

Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers dine at steakhouse in new State Farm ads

Super Bowl MVPs Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers enjoy a meal at a steakhouse with "Jake from State Farm" in a new series of commercials released online Friday.  The short 15-second version of the commercial features Mahomes and Rodgers asking Jake which is better, the "Rodgers Rate" or the "Patrick Price". They refuse to believe that State Farm offers everyone "surprisingly great rates". The "special rates" were brought up in last month's ads which featured Mahomes showing off his co...

Film review: How Aaron Rodgers played keep-away from Vikings' safeties

Mike Zimmer said he can do a "better job" with the young Vikings cornerbacks after Sunday's 43-34 loss to the Packers. Coaches can fix finer aspects like standing in the right spot before the snap, and technique once the ball is snapped. But how Zimmer deploys the safety tandem of Harrison Smith and Anthony Harris in coverage can also impact the younger players. ESPN analyst and former NFL safety Matt Bowen noted he was "really surprised" at how much single-high safety coverage Zimmer called aga...

Aaron Rodgers likes his State Farm insurance rate in new ad

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers stars in a new State Farm commercial that made its debut just in time for the start of the new NFL season. In the ad, Rodgers is tossing a ball to his dog while thanking "Jake from State Farm" for the special "Rodgers Rate" on his insurance, mistakenly thinking that State Farm is giving him a special rate just because of his status an NFL quarterback. "Jake" has to explain that everyone gets the same "great rates". The commercial ends with a thro...

Florida police department tries to un-ironically recreate "Minority Report"

I recently re-watched the Spielberg-Tom Cruise big screen adaptation of Minority Report. It still holds up as a great sci-fi film about the dangers of the surveillance state, but it also loses something in the way it strays from the source material. I'm hardly an adaptation purist, but Philip K Dick's original "Minority Report" short story was deeply, deeply chilling in a way that a Tom Cruise movie was never going to be — because instead of being a wrongly-accused hero who wants to restore free...
