Sherman Sez

Here's what Packer coach Mike Sherman had to say following the Packers' 31-21 loss to the Vikings in the Metrodome:<p>

On the loss:

"We did have opportunities to win. I want them to be mad, I want them to be disappointed. But at the same time, be ready for next week.''

"We didn't make the plays we needed to make to win the football game and they did."

"The ball didn't seem to bounce our way, then again we didn't do things to make it bounce our way."

"It was a dog fight the whole way, even when we were down 14-0. I came in at half time and told the guys we were going to win the football game."

On the running game:

"We really struggled running the football. The statistics may say we had over 70 yards, but a lot of it came on one run, so you can't say we had success running the football. We didn't."
