On the flip side…. At least Aaron looks like he doesn’t care about football or Green Bay 

True it levels it all out, Packers getting totally killed is awesome.  I would take that, at least the Vikings put up a fight unlike Green Bay, so there is a positive out of the day at least.

Yes the talent is better, but so is the coaching play calling.  BTW, Mayfield is playing great. He's so much better than Cousins.

Play calling is one thing but if you cannot block the DL does not really matter what the play call is.  Put that Browns OL on the Vikings and the Vikings team is 100% a different team even with Cousins as the QB.

Let me put it this way, It was really close, but if it went against my team I would not have been happy. Unfortunately wasn’t a lot of good angles to overturn the call. But no we were extremely lucky to get that call. 

Home field helps. It always does haha

Cousins will never be a "different" QB.  He is who is.

Who feels worse after today? Minnesota fans, or Green Bay fans?

Tough question. Packers fans probably thought they were getting one more year out of a HOF QB who’d play at a MVP level but he seems disinterested. 
 

Vikes fans probably will struggle accepting that Cousins simply won’t change and blame the OL when there really seems to be a disconnect between Cousins and Zimmer. Tons of mental mistakes week one and that reflects poorly on coaching. 
 

Still lean towards Packers fans here, they were so much closer with a MVP QB than the Vikes were with Zimmer.  But again, they might feel more optimistic knowing that Love is an unknown whereas the Vikes have a lame duck in Zimmer and peak Cousins.

Positives:

- Cousins delivered in the 4th quarter, two minute drill, and in OT. 
- Joseph with a cold blooded 53 yarder to tie the game. 
- KJ Osborn looks like a dependable WR3
- Michael Pierce is a force
- Tyler Conklin can play. I’d like to see him used on more intermittent routes.
