They’re getting everyone involved today, aren’t they?

The Packers are showing off their roster. How about Alonzo Harris?

Steve from Austin, TX

My stat of the first quarter with two minutes left is 74 pass yards and 74 rush yards. What’s yours?

The Packers defense only allowed three yards in the first quarter.

Ryan from London, England

If you could draw up a perfect quarter, it would look like that first quarter.

It’s difficult to draw up four of those.

Brian from Fond du lac, WI

Vic, we’re up 14-0. Now let me school you on how to win in the NFL in the post-1969 era: not good enough. Crunch time is now. What you do in the next 10 minutes will have a profound impact on the rest of the game. Thirty-five points is the new three-point lead.

You can count on that every week?

Brad from Spirit Lake, IA

Vic, I finally understand. I’m not chortling, but on our second commanding drive down the field, I thought to myself, “I really hope this isn’t a runaway. I want to see the starters excel in the fourth quarter.” Thank you.

Brian wants a runaway. He’s afraid of crunch time.

Todd from Sheboygan Falls, WI

On that first drive, Randall Cobb put on a blocking clinic. I hope he feels great about doing his job. Who do you think is more versatile, Randall now or Hines Ward in his prime?

Oh, Randall, of course. Ward only knocked guys out.

Mike from McFarland, WI

Give Capers a raise!

Let’s start by giving him the respect he deserves.

Tanner from Suwanee, GA

The Packers have scored in the first quarter in 19 straight games. Players or plays?

Would you like to try it without Aaron Rodgers?

Lars from Aalborg, Denmark

Good game to get up in the middle of the night for. It seems like Nate Palmer is doing really well as middle linebacker with Matthews. How do you see him so far?

He made an outstanding tackle on Jamaal Charles on a screen pass.

Julie from Brooklyn, NY

I’m seeing a lot of red, Vic. What would you say the ratio of fans is tonight?

Ratio? I don’t know, but there are a lot, I mean a whole lot, of people in this crowd wearing Chiefs jerseys. I’m stunned. I never knew the Chiefs to travel that well.

Cindy from Hawthorn Woods, IL

Vic, players are intense, fans are loud. That 3:52 has created an edge in Packer nation and I like it.
