"Ask Vic" is published on M-W-F through the regular season.

When you are lucky and win, do you learn your lesson?
Do they have to learn their lesson? I've never seen a team get the breaks as the Packers have in recent years. The ball was right on target. All Green had to do was turn and it's a touchdown.
Kyle from Phoenix, AZ
I got the sense from your Wednesday blog you thought the Packers would win this game if they stayed committed to the run. Did I read you correctly and what did you see that made you feel that way?
The Cardinals are light in the pants up front.
Brian from Conroe, TX
Why don’t we give the ball to the big running back on the one-yard line?
The Packers dominated the game with the run. So, at the one-yard line, why get into some over-schemed formation and take a delay-of-game penalty? Why not just play it straight and pound it? I don't get it.
Michael from Eau Claire, WI
That was a great game. Matt LaFleur earned my respect. They finally played a complete game; honestly, not chortling. They played the game they had to. Whew!
Isaac from Columbia, TN
That one felt less lucky. Do you agree?
Matt from Winfield, IL
What a game, but I have no idea what to take away. Help me, Vic.
The Packers have a sensational offense. We learned they can run the ball when they commit to it.
Greg from Danbury, CT
Beating the Cardinals, despite getting stuffed twice at the goal line, I’m impressed. Am I too easily impressed?
You're like nearly everybody in my inbox, which is to say deliriously happy to have won and especially relieved to have avoided the pain of what would've been a terrible choke job.
Adam from Wausau, WI
Can we get a preview of your all-important power rankings for who is No. 1?
I think you know.
Hennison from St. Paul, MN
This crow tastes delicious!
Bob from Port Saint Lucie, FL
Lots of chortling in your inbox tonight?

Which move would you like to see the Falcons make?
The Falcons need a quarterback to begin a new era of Falcons football. I think Kenny Pickett is perfect for them, but the problem right now is Pickett and the Falcons are moving in opposite directions in the draft order. My information on Pickett is he has small hands. That's the kind of information that's revealed at combine time and it could turn cold-weather teams away from Pickett. In Atlanta, Pickett would be guaranteed to play more than half the season in a dome while playing in a warm-weather division. How many games can the Falcons win before they've moved below Pickett? In my opinion, they can't move out of the top 10.
Eric from Green Bay, WI
Of the bottom five teams in the all-important "Ask Vic" power rankings, which one do you think will be in the top 10 the soonest and how soon? Which do you think will take the longest time to reach the top 10 and how long?
If Lawrence and Wilson were the right picks, the Jaguars and Jets should move highest and quickest. You have to have "The Man." The Lions don't have him. Tua needs more time but he's not an accurate short passer and, for that reason, I don't think he's the right guy. The Texans' situation is too muddled to even analyze.
Brandon from Huntington Beach, CA
My best friend from Portland (Ore.) met me in Green Bay this past weekend for my first game. While we were getting a ride share to Lambeau, we were talking with the driver and discovered she is a fellow "Victorian." She said she almost got a personalized license plate that said ASKVIC.
Dick from Merced, CA
Really enjoy your current picture; you look so comfortable and contented in a rocker with a pup at your feet. Only heaven will be better. As I am an old-time Packers fan, I was wondering how you thought Lombardi would do coaching in today's NFL.
He would've adapted. Lombardi had a strong business acumen. He valued contract structure. He would've been a perfect coach for a cap-conscious team.
