On the bright side, we won't have to waist our time watching the Vikings during the hunting season for another year. I think that today was the worst game I have ever seen. The whole offense was well, offensive.

Imagine the Lions fans. They are probably peeved that the lions had to go into OT against that offense. I love the Vikes but that game was one of the worst Ive seen in a while. 4 picks!! i am not sure if Daunte ever threw that many in a game before getting pulled.

What miffs me is this coach is an offensive coach how can the O line stink so bad. This should have been a win if the O line could have given time. Penalties Oh MY.

Why is that when the vikes try too run the ball its always in tight sets? Why don't they send a 4 reciever set in there and spread the defense out and get AP some space once in a while? And does anyone know why Sydney Rice didnt touch the field until the 4th quarter?

If the vikes continue too run nothing but tight set formations, defenses are going too continue too load up and bring nothing but heat. I think the coaching staff has too take some heat also. Get things spread out a bit and if defenses continue too blitz you should have multiple 1 on 1 options open immediately instead of defenses blitzing and having 1 option thats covered. Until the vikes show they can attack a bit, not even downfield, but in that midrange 10-15 yard range teams will do this all year and not only will we not be able too pass the ball, everything will be constantly bottled up against the run. And this wasnt even against an elite defense. I hope they open things up a bit or i have wasted $260 on the 4 packer game tickets i bought in 2 weeks.

Just a terrible game through and through...I can't believe the line play, and Tarvaris looked terrible, in his defense, he had no time at all, but he still made some bad decisions. I just hope we're not wasting a dominant defense with such a bad offense. Just imagine if we had even just an average offense right now, with our D...

I've never seen a team try to give away a game so badley until yesterday.

Woudnt having a few 3 or 4 reciever sets in a game, spreading the (Contact Us Please) a bit, make it easier for T-Jack and the line too identify the blitzes rather than running tight sets with 9 guys in the box. Wouldnt it be easier with 7 guys in the box in a spread rather than 9 guys. And wouldnt it be easier for AP too find some room too run? They did some of this against the falcons with success and none of it yesterday. T-Jack made some bad plays, but i dont think hes being set up very well too succeed. Childress made it waaaay too easy for the defense by running everything tight. You run nothing but tight sets and its way too easy for the defense too bring the heat and stuff everything. Every team we play is going too bring the house every time stuffing the run and giving T-Jack no time too do anything. And can you pick any worse times too get cute? Its 3rd and 1 and your stuffing it down the lions throat on the first drive and you get cute and run a rollout and it leads too an INT. They faked a reverse 3 times and i told my buddy "just watch they are setting this up too actually run the reverse and its going too go no where, its too predictable". And they did just that, and it got stuffed horribly.

Why can we see it and the coaches cannot? I dont mind losing but how we lose just makes me so mad, because it seems like a lack of effort on the coachs to makes changes. Hey Bud where ya at, we could sure use you. smile.gif

I hope that T Jack is going to be on the bench for a while!!!! I guess they forgot to explain the difference between home jerseys and road jerseys. Guess he figured if he threw to the dark jerseys, that it would be a good thing. O Line couldn't have stopped a school girl. They misssed the blitz when the guy was lined up in their face. They need to fix the line, and go out and get a decent QB. David Carr is riding the pines in Carolina. Can someone say TRADE??????

David Carr and decent QB?? That doesnt go together. Bring someone in whos had 3 years too show what hes got and done nothing rather than let T-Jack grow up? I'd rather watch T-Jack grow up with AP and Syndey Rice. I don't know what people are expecting from this kid with what he's being dealt with. He's young, he's gonna make bonehead mistakes. And when the coaches call the game like they do it just compounds matters and doesn't let him grow. Spread the offense out, get the defense spread out. Give AP some room. Give the kid a chance too figure out where guys are coming from. How many QB's can figure out where the blitz is coming from when there are 9 defenders on the line of scrimmage? Good veterans would have trouble with that.

T-Jack as you call him is a JACK-A. PERIOD. The guy is horrible, he is a NCAA Div II QB. Know what that means? No DIV I schools would even give him a chance. A couple more games like that and I don't think he's worth the Vikings giving him a chance anymore. I am looking forward to the Vikes winning enough games to give them a top 5 pick next year and they had better use it getting a decent QB

Oh and by the way, the NFL standard for coaches is what- 2 and out or is it 3 and out? Even if it is 3- get rid of this clown after this season. 3 times in the last few years we have had premier coordinators on the sidelines and have failed to promote them to head coach- Dungy, Billick- each have a Super Bowl ring and now Mike Tomlin. Get with it Vikes

James, I was talking to another HS football coach this afternoon at lunch. We couldn't believe the bonehead coaching. When they faked the end around, and then came back the very next play and actually ran it, I couldn't believe it. Jr. High kids wouldn't fall for that, he basically told the defense what his next play was going to be. I for one, think Childress is about as lousy a head coach as there is. If a no name like Mike McCarthy can get the Packers to look like a team, what the heck is Childress's problem? If he turns this thing around, I will gladly, ever so gladly eat crow, and I mean a REAL crow. Man I thought they looked lousy on Sunday. If anyone watched the Patriots and Chargers that night, they saw what a real offensive unit looked like. Maybe Chili should start taping the other teams signals. smile.gif

Actually, I believe T Jack was originally enrolled at Div I Arkansas - but transferred. He didn't play well, but he didn't have much help either. I don't think it's time to clear the roster just yet.

How can you expect for Sydney Rice to do anything when his QB is busy throwing the ball to the other team? Perhaps they can get one of the Twins infielders to play WR, so they can field all of the short hop throws TJack throws at them. Bottom line is......he sucks. Wether he is a rookie,veteran or whatever, he sucks. What good does spreading the offense out when eventually they are going to have to pass, and they just can't do it. Jackson is going to nothing more than cost them games.

I agree that Childress is about as worthless a coach as there is in the NFL. He didn't call the plays in Philly, Andy Reid did. History dictates that we let the good coaches go and keep the not so goods. Look at Trent Dilfer......not the greatest QB in the world, but did what needed to be done to ensure that his team won. We have nothing close to the in Minnesota right now.

Musky and I are gonna get a beer next time I am up in the cities. We see it for what it is- when week 16 hits and the Vikes are 5-11, you'll be saying it then too. Face it people, Tarvaris sucks.

Wow, classic bandwagon, guys plays bad and we better get rid of him. Granted, Jackson hasn't lit it up, but he has TWO whole starts, and a coach that just doesn't seems to properly utilize the talents he has. Show me a rookie or first year starter that didn't struggle from time to time. It is going to be a long season of ups and downs, maybe by the LAST TWO games we will have a better understanding of who we have for a QB. smirk.gif

I'm not saying they won't be 5-11. But how can you say in one instance that Childress is the worst coach there is but in the next blame Jackson? Chilly is problem #1 for not putting his players in a position too succeed. How can any QB succeed in this offense. You go draft whomever you want next year, it isnt going too matter unless Chilly pulls his head out. T-Jack, the stud out of Hawaii, Brian Brohm, bring them in, it will not matter with this play calling.

And how can spreading the offense NOT make things better? It opens things up. Spreads the defense out so AP has some room. It spreads the defense out and makes it easier for the line and Jackson too identify who is blitzing. How can any team be expected too run the ball out of nothing but tight sets where the defense gets too cram everyone in the box and bring the house on every play? Oh, and if its a pass, well there is 7 people rushing up field and on top of Jackson immediately. How can anyone find an open guy with 3 guys in his face? How can 5 lineman be expected too constantly take care of 7 guys coming at them? Mix things up a bit, give the defense some different looks they cant sit 9 guys on the line of scrimmage and bring the heat on every play. Give your QB a friggin chance too make a play. Give your recievers a chance too run in space and not a crowded mess. Maybe than can actually take a quick slant over the middle over the blitzing linebacker and make a 5 yard pass into a 50 yard play instead of having too run 3 yard comeback routes all game long.

I concur, james backs up his posts with solid points and feedback, not just so and so sucks. I am very disappointed in the coaching staff. I was hoping that when Childress handed off the play calling duties we were going to see a spark of something...and we have nothing. As a side note, did anyone watch the philly-washington game? I could have sworn I had seen that terrible offense before, and I had, it's just the guys were wearing purple, not green. Philly put up their points based on talent, not the scheme, and I think on offense we are far more lacking in talent then they are...I am officially on the ditch Childress bandwagon

      Well well where to begin. This past Friday went a little smoother checking in our customers, all though I still had a few other issues? You can never totally go with the plan and I'm constantly improvising something .This time it was the red baron. Farting around with the spark plug wires I was confident I had my missing problem solved. I head up to North country food fuel gas, up and I'm still not happy with the red baron so I pop the hood and start messing with the wires again. I hit the lake and now its running worse then ever? Oh well new wires are coming so I forge my way out too finish prepping. My timing is perfect all day long as I get every one checked in as they arrive. Of course mother nature now does a flip flop and there's standing water around the houses with the warm temps. Oh Well the January thaw! its better then 40 below,   Dan and Dave/Gravy" great nick name', checked into north Carolina, What a great couple of guys. Gravy was like having a helper out there as he was all over gassing up the generator and meeting the neighbors after I checked them in.  Justin and Megan arrived for north Dakota with Ron and Caroline arriving later in the day. Ken ,Carl, Terry and Sarah arrived  for florida right on time. They have ben here before and know the routine .  After taking care of them I was off to old Minnesota to prep for Wayne's arrival. Jarrod and Jeromy would not be arriving tell after 10 pm. for montana. After finishing up I headed to shore with the red baron running like crap.  Arriving back on shore I decide to again look at the plug wires and discover number 2 plug wire is not even on? To funny I guess! As my good friend wayne says, here at Cookie's we do it right cause we do it twice and some times even Thrice.  Plugging the wire in and just like that after all the fooling around re routing the wires  she running 80 % better . Man am I looking forward to installing them new wires today. Making the rounds later that evening and every one was having a grand time, Saturday morning and all the house's had some fish and fish stories to tell. How sweet a feeling that is! Saturday evening and again making the rounds we were starting to see a lot of standing water in the roads and around the houses. You can not beat mother nature out there no mater how hard you try.   We fished with Wayne and his sister Kathy where again the hammer was up to here old tricks landing a elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. I even got in on the action and landed a nice keeper walleye. Sunday morning  making the rounds and saying good by,  Gravy Dave and as Carolina  said" Dan was biscuit were headed home with only 5? I'm not sure if they ate any. Ken, Carl Sarah and Terry? in florida had a great time. They were going home with a few nice perch and 7 keepers walleyes plus a number of misses and a couple of pike released. A good fishy area in my book. North dakoata was the hot house. They were going home with 12 and also ate 6 . Megan cooked them up with a honey crust, drizzled with honey. Sounded great and there going to send me the receipt. Then as they were packing Justin landed a elusive yes elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. Man that house seems to catch fish. Saturday night they were playing a drinking game .Man were they having fun. Jarrod and Jeromy in montana also had some fish to take home so all in all every one had a grand time on a grand lake. Hillmens Highway should be in great shape once the cold air comes back.  The road is 7 miles out and as always you could land a 747 on it. There is a bridge around 1.7 miles. out., There's  a curve about 3.5 to the left then right. There's cones around 6 miles for now to let the new mile of road firm up. That's about it today. Busy day ahead but looking forward to hiitting the lake with my good friend Marty as he arrived early this morning with a buddy.

      We were up north of DL 15 miles this weekend and a ton of water on the ice but it's from melting snow.  All the holes we drilled the ice was still 1-2" above water level.  It was pretty hard getting around especially at accesses due to the snow melting.  Was very soft but I was able to get around with my Rav 4, barely made it up the accesses huge hill because traction control turned off but made it though!  We had 18-19" of ice 12-14" of it was clear ice.

      1/23/17    Night crappie bite is on. Hit Waconia Saturday evening. Got a good sunfish bite half hour before sunset until dark. Crappies bit well from six to eight pm. Larger Tungsten Tubby in glow tipped with a wax worm and a small VMC spoon in glow pink fire UV tipped with a waxie were the best baits. Sunfish were near the bottom over a deep basin area adjacent to a shallower weedy area, and crappies moved through spread out over the bottom eight feet or so of the water column. Sunfish still biting during the day on Prior, but they are moving around a lot so you need to hole hop for a consistent bite. Numbers and size. Tiny Tungsten Tubby or Gill Pill with one or two red Eurolarvae were working well. An inline reel is a big help as it reduces line twist and keeps you jig from spinning and spooking finicky sunfish. Still sixteen to eighteen inches of ice on Waconia, and fifteen to sixteen on Prior. Water and slush on top, but more seasonal temps this week should firm things up. Good luck, be safe, and I will see you out there somewhere.
