Vic, that play-call to go for it on fourth down is crazy. Give Clements back the play-calling duties immediately!

Yinz are funny.

Marshall from Ashburn, VA

Did we take the two fullbacks and one halfback set out of the play book?

I don’t know.

Roland from Glen Cove, NY

Three runs from the 1-yard line; two with Rodgers, one with Starks. Eddie took you down the field; let him smash it in.

OK.

Alex from Durham, NC

Lots of yellow flags on the ground so far. This could be a long game.

I was flipping from one game to another on my TV earlier today, and three consecutive games produced a referee talking to the fans.

Chris from Ft. Bragg, NC

OK, Mike’s calling plays. As I write this, we’re looking pretty good. You’ve convinced me that who is calling plays doesn’t matter, so did this change inspire the players, or is it just coincidental?

The fans have been calling for Coach McCarthy to call plays. I should’ve listened to them.

Matt from Sunnyside, NY

Takes over play-calling a week after benching Lacy and then calls on Lacy to produce right out of the gate. McCarthy is a fantastic leader of men, agree?

He’s the boldest coach I’ve ever covered.

Pablo from St. Pablo, MN

How many Dallas jerseys do you see?

I see a lot of blue raincoats.

Bobby from Green Bay, WI

Vic, I’ve spent the entire day asking people how the play-calling was causing passes to be dropped. I’m getting a headache. Is that what it’s like writing “Ask Vic” on a daily basis? I anticipate a lot of play-calling conversation this week.

I’m struggling to find questions that don’t involve play-calling as the subject.

Alex from Helena, MT

Play-caller, not plays?

Absolutely.

Danny from Oakley, CA

Do you think this game has been over-officiated so far?

Yes.

Alex from Tacoma, WA

There seems to be a lot of blue at the game, Vic!

I know, Alex, and thanks for noticing.

Seth from Richmond, VA

With four straight runs with Lacy to begin the game, was McCarthy showing how confident he is in Lacy’s playmaking abilities?

I think he was letting everyone know what the game plan is.

Dennis from Newfoundland, WI

Is it plausible Rodgers is more comfortable with McCarthy calling plays again? Just a thought.

I have to believe Aaron Rodgers was consulted on the switch last winter and expressed comfort with it.

Adam from Wausau, WI

How about that TOP?

Balance is a play-caller’s best friend.
