Without Matthews, execution will be even more important

Posted Dec 26, 2013

Lambeau Field visitor testifies to Packers fans’ winsomeness


Scott from Lincoln City, OR

Vic, if it’s players, not plays, then what’s there to praise coaches about?

You praise them for teaching and leading, but I never said scheme wasn’t important. It’s important, but it has to be executed and that’s why players are more important than schemes. X’s and O’s don’t move; players move.

Paul from Peoria, AZ

What is up with all of the questions about the trick play next Sunday? Please let these people know the concept of a trick play is a trick by you. Then, again, it is adding humor to the column. I guess you can let it linger, though for my suggestion, perhaps you should ban me.

OK, you’re banned, and so is everybody else in Peoria, Ariz.

Jim from Brooklyn, NY

Vic, you always say, “It’s football; it’s not if, it’s when you will get injured.” Tony Gonzalez has missed two games since he was a rookie in 1997. Are there players that manage to play above that law?

Why would you think Gonzalez hasn’t been injured? Getting hurt is one thing, playing hurt is another thing.

Brandon from Houston, TX

Vic, there have been an embarrassing amount of suspensions of college players before bowl games. Do you think there’s just too much downtime between the end of the regular season and the postseason in the NCAA?

That’s not it. The problem is that political correctness doesn’t allow coaches to be the fearful tyrants they once were. Players didn’t dare cross the old guys. The penalty for misbehavior would’ve been extreme. Now, the worst thing a coach can do to you is suspend you or kick you off the team. The old guys would’ve done much worse than that.

Ryan from Stillwater, MN

Vic, during the 49ers game, Jon Gruden said that when Mike Nolan’s players don’t get to the QB, his scheme will. Scheme can’t rush or sack the QB. Gruden needs to start reading this blog.

Again, I never said you can’t beat a team with scheme; you just can’t do it without your players executing it, and the better the players, the better the execution. Great players defeat great schemes. Great players in great schemes are nearly unbeatable. I don’t understand why so many people struggle with this concept. One coach can pencil whip another coach, but only if his players execute what his pencil draws. Without Clay Matthews this Sunday, execution of scheme will be even more important.

Mark from Westernport, MD

After driving more than 14 hours, coming from deep Steelers country to take my dad to our first-ever trip to Green Bay to see our Packers, I am simply in awe of the experience we had this past weekend. I’ve been to my share of games in Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Washington and the differences between those experiences and our trip to Green Bay are astonishing. I’ve never felt so welcome in a new city as I have in Green Bay. I finally understand winsome. I see nothing wrong with winsome. In fact, I think it should be a label worn with pride, one that is shared by no other city or fan base in the NFL.

If Packers fans aren’t winsome, they’ll do until winsome gets here.
