The worst last 10 seconds of the forth I have ever seen!

16 posts in this topic

Thats all I have to say about Sundays game ( that would not be a contact us please).

I take that back, the last 2 seconds were even worse!

The prediction for this year was made long ago, but being a die hard Viks fan, it took me untill this last Sun. for it to sink in.

I will not waste another fall/winter Sunday watching Vikes play. I will be hunting, fishing, ice fishing, four wheeling, snowmobiling or what ever. I would rather go to a strip club, than watch another Vikes game this season!

OPOVF!

I am a fan of the Vikes, and will watch and back them whether they win or lose...ugly or nice games.

That is what being a fan in MN is all about!

Yeah, me too. Except to me it's more like a disease with no cure. An addiction. I can't help myself. I will always be a fan, but sometimes I wish I wasn't...

I was at the game in KC last weekend. Talk about embarassing. I had a good time getting the nearby KC fans all riled up in the first half, but I kept my head down pretty low after that.

The walk back through the parking lot to my vehicle after the game.... oh man, I don't ever wanna go thru that again. tongue.gif

Things can only get better. (That's what I keep tellin myself anyways)

OOOOOO! Sorry dude! That must have sucked pretty bad!

Oh, I am a true Vikes fan and have been for many, many years! Seeing the Childress post, it brought me back to last Sunday. I was reliving the pain. I got home and calmed down a little.

All though I am a die hard Vikes fan, this is a another year I will not pass up a good fishing or sporting outing on a sunny Indian summer fall day, unless they change. Even then it would have to be a big change.

One side note! At least we are starting out year, without a off the field major black eye episode. All the boys are keeping it in their pants out in public. More ways than one!

Go Vikes!

P.S.

It still was the worst last 2 seconds of any game that I have seen in a very long time. But what the hay, I am a Vikes fan. I bleed purple!

Childress kind of reminds me of "tes" Steckel. Maybe Bud Grant will come back and bail out Childress like he did Tes.

Being a lifelong Vikes fan and a serious one at that, the Vikes other than AP have a horrible offense. No QB for this level and a offensive line that can only run block. The defense is the same, stop the run and hope they don't pass. MY goodnees, we got eaten alive by Damon Huard and Jon Kitna, what happens when we run into a good QB??

Other than a decent P and PK and run def, they are a dismal football team. 4-12 at best.

GO Vikes!!!!

Was it worse than this account back in 1999?

2. GREEN BAY 23, MINNESOTA 20 (1999)

There was a reason Ray Rhodes was fired merely minutes after the 1999 season. Had it not of been for three miraculous Favre comebacks to start the season, his team (two years removed from the Super Bowl) would have finished 5-11. One of those come-from-behind wins came against Randall Cunningham, Robert Smith, Randy Moss and the explosive Vikings offense that emphatically snapped Green Bay’s 25-game home win streak the previous year.

After Moss caught a TD lob from Cunningham with less than two minutes left, visions of last season’s 38-24 drubbing resurfaced.

But the stage was set. Down 20-16. 1:51 left. Two timeouts. Seventy-seven yards to paydirt. This signifies Green Bay vs. Minnesota and the sheer will of No. 4.

Like a surgeon, an unfazed Favre steadily gained dissected Minnesota on the final drive. A 22-yard strike to Corey Bradford got the ball rolling. Consecutive check down passes to Dorsey Levens sandwiched a timeout while tacking on 23 more yards as Green Bay reached the Vikings 32-yard line. Following an incompletion, Bill Schroeder caught a six-yarder in the middle of the field which forced Green Bay to call their final timeout with 43 seconds left.

On third-and-four, the Pack caught a terrible break when Levens caught a three-yard pass and was tackled in-bounds, setting up an unfriendly fourth-and-one. A spike would end the game. There was no time to huddle up for a play call. And even if the Packers completed a first down, time would probably run out.

With no time to contemplate, Favre raced to the line of scrimmage as the clock suddenly evaporated to 16 seconds. A Favre pump fake froze cornerback Jimmy Hitchcock who anticipated a slant With no time to contemplate, Favre raced to the line of scrimmage as the clock suddenly evaporated to 16 seconds. A Favre pump fake froze cornerback Jimmy Hitchcock who anticipated a slant. Bradford kept gliding and snagged the game-winner in stride. Game over.

Said Rhodes, "That was close to a miracle, if not a miracle."

Not so much a 10 second story but a 14 year one.....

I bet Farve and the Pack faithfulls would trade that for Farve's 4 win and 10 loss career record at the Dome or better yet trade it for Farve's LOSING career record against the vaunted Vikes.... grin.gif

I gotta tall ya boys, I'm not lookin forward to this Sunday. Call me what you will, but it's going to be a long, slow, painful game to watch.

Farve setting records, in the Dome (of all places) against the most helpless Viking team that I can remember. *GULP!

Makes me sick just thinkin about it.

GO VIKES!!!

(Though I don't think it matters how many times or how loud I yell it. It's just sad, like goin to a funeral.)

That was a poor ending in Vikes History, but last Sunday was just plan "trip over oue selves and we caused the loss" type ending.

Its was bad! There might have been worse, but I can not remember!

Will see this weekend?? I think I am going grouse hunting Sunday or fishing! I will hear recap on way home. I am sure I will be impressed and sad I missed game. But like I said, I will not loose any nice fall days to a Vikes game this year. I will tune in on radio if I am in truck!

Good luck Vikes.

Go Vikes!

I got to admit this was my favorite part to the story. How is it a terrible break? If a three yard pass is thrown when you need four with the game on the line it probably one of two things. A bad play by one of the offensive players (QB or receiver) or a good play by the defense to take him down there in bounds. At least I would have thought so. For Mr. Favre though, it is just bad luck.

I am a Vikes fan through and through but really would love to appreciate Farve for who he is and what he has done but this is just a small example of why it is difficult to do. When he makes a great play he is called great. When he throws a boneheaded INT he is a "gunslinger who loves to play the game". At least we can watch this weeks game without Madden messing himself over the thought of Farve breaking the record.

Are you saying there is a double standard?... shocked.gif

I too believe it will be a long day for the Purple and will also be in the woods or on a Bog somewhere.....But I do have the game Tivo.ed for later viewing in case a miracle were to transpire... grin.gif

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.

      Thanks guys for the informative replies. Can you also comment on the walleye limits?

      Hey Barefoot on the main lake or current areas?

      a tournament-record 10-pound, 2-ounce beauty was big fish and A record 110 boats fished this year’s tourney, held out of the marina at Fortune Bay Resort Casino. 492 walleye, another tournament record, were weighed and released at this catch-and-release event.

      My daughter is shooting my 12 gauge 870 Wingmaster really good. Im looking for a nice looking, nice shooting and dependable pump shotgun for her at a decent price. I'm not liking the newer 870 Wingmasters as much as I did when I bought mine 30 years ago. I recently saw some Weatherby PA08s. Very nice looking gun which rival the looks of old Wingmasters with walnut stock, deep checkering, fairly light for $350 new. Reviews I see from 2011-2014 have me concerned a bit about hard trigger pull and shells sometimes not ejecting. Anyone have any experience or knowledge about these Weatherby pumps? If there were issues, you would think Weatherby would have fixed them by now.

      I did this a while back.  If you have basic carpentry skills you can do it for under $200. Here's what I did.   Get 2x8 treated board.  Cut to length of back bench.  Attach a swivel seat to board then attach board to back bench using screws and glue.   Buy two sheets of 4x8 3/4" sheeting that's rated for exterior and a gallon of deck stain.  Stain said sheets.  Cut out one for floor and one for casting deck up front (i used the front bench with a little bracing in between).  Use left over 2x8 for bracing casting deck.  You will also need one 2x4 treated board for bracing of the floor.  Install casting seat up front.  Looks good and is cheap and easy.  I used cedar stain and bought cedar colored treated lumber.  If I remember correctly I cut out the middle bench.   Only problem was it added a lot of weight so had to upgrade to 15 horse.  Sold it  a couple of years later for a $100 profit.  Just an idea.  
    • Walleye #1
        Walleyes on Leech Lake found themselves spread out but actively feeding on shiners.  A Jig and shiner or a plastic and lindy rigs with shiners and leeches were the go to presentations during the course of the week.  Somedays walleyes were wanting it dragged along which is where lindy rigs worked well and other days snapping or twitching a jig and minnow was the ticket.  So being diverse in your presentations, changing up colors and cadences, and getting away from the crowds is the ticket.     West End - Fish were found on West Goose Flats, Star Point, Grand Vu Flats, Duck Point, Pine Point, Stoney, and on some of the breaklines in Traders Bay.  Depending on the day depths changed, but it seemed the best bite was in 8-14 feet of water.  Find the shiners and you found walleyes closeby!     East End/Main Lake - Main Lake Rocks are still producing a large quantity of fish in the 20-26” protected slot, with some keepers mixed in.  Annex, Submarine, Five Mile, Pelican Island, and Rogers Point all had decent bites. Fish were typically found in that 8-12ft range on this part of the lake and finding areas with sand and boulders was the key.  Portage Bay also reported a good bite up near Federal Dam.  Look for emergent cabbage in Portage, especially on those bright and sunny days where those walleyes will look to find cover.  Pitching a jig and minnow or jig and plastic for these Leech Lake Walleyes in the cabbage is fun way to catch them.     Jumbo Perch are also showing up with the walleyes, but often times will be shallower.  Found some of our best perch bites in 6-10ft of water, with some really nice jumbos mixed in.     Jason Freed Leisure Outdoor Adventures Fishing Guide Service

       Any boat restorers here in the twin cities area?  Looking to get some information and possibly a quote on a 12 foot aluminum boat. Would like benches re-done with carpeting, and possible floor work. Thanks in advance, I appreciate it!
    • HugeHogChaser
      Good evening,   i recently inherited a 12 foot aluminum boat, and I would like to re-do the interior. (Add carpet to the benches, possibly add marine grade plywood to the floor and carpet the floor as well.)   does anybody have any experience doing this, or recommend anybody that is good with this type of thing?    Trying to figure out if it's worth it to pay someone to do it, or try and figure out how to do it myself with no experience.    Anyways, thanks in advance!
