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

Recommended Posts

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!!!!

Down to Earth

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

Remember the Pack VS Vikes at the dome when the Pack had a WR practically hopscotch down the sidelines and into the end zone? I still think some Vikings gonna come along and knock that guy into next week

      OK - we made it back!!!  Every trip is different with it's own potential perils.   I finally got into my house on Friday around 11am.  My guests were rookies, so i spent time with each of them, getting setup, heaters started, Vexilars set, houses banked, lines prep'd and set, bait, etc...  The bite was somewhat slow and many small ones.  The day got better 3 to 430pm.  Ended up with 6 nice eyes (19, 18x3, 17x2), 13 jumbos (most ever for a day), 12 small sauger which we ate for dinner.   On Saturday we headed up to the south shore of the Angle, longer ride, so again did not get started too early.  Ended up with our 6 eyes for our limit, these ranged from 15 to 16 inches and a 4-pack of sauger.  Again the bite seemed to pickup at 3 or so and was done by 430pm.   Ice as 3 foot or so.  Snow depth varied a lot, depending on the condition of the ice.  Smooth areas were blown off to crusty 6 inches or so.  Rough ice surely held a lot of snow.   The drive back on Sunday was somewhat tough from Baudette to Emily, winter storm warning.  Slow go, low visibility, and icy roads, sometimes down to 15 mph.   Next scheduled trip is with my wife, son, and three of his Gopher swim teammates for spring break in three weeks.

      Those were caught from a shallow lake (17’) in 9 feet of water at the bottom of the first shoreline break. I was using a UV buckshot and minnow head since the water was murky. The crappie is still swimming the walleye not so much. I didn’t get the exact location. Sorry

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge

      On the Bayfield side of the bay, the target depth is typically 10 to 40 ft. The basswood island area is where they go after lakers. There’s a plowed road that goes out there. As of last week the ice was about 20 inches in that area, might be thicker now. Check out the Bayfield webcam, you can see what kind of activity is going on.

      Wanderer, stop in at the River Rock bait shop in Ashland and they will get you pointed in the right direction.  They are always pretty cool about that.  Fishing near Ashland off of 2nd landing can be good.  Don't need nothing more than regular walleye gear, and some tip-ups and really there is no rhyme or reason where a guy should set up shop. Its a pretty wide open water and the fish that live there are always on the move. For us, most often, the sit and wait pays off.  It has been slower as of late, but still some fish..  Good luck, JH

      Anybody know if there is a pressure ridge/ice heave out in front of the Warroad Access? I know ice conditions will change throughout the coming weeks. Looking forward to getting after some pike.  The last few years there has been a pressure ridge there, last year it went from Springsteel over to Swift. And we've been up there plenty of times when there hasn't been one at all. Just curious to find out what conditions are like in that bay. Thanks!

      Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.
    • PRO-V
      Agreed!!
    • SaintPaulPaul
      Switch to regular Budweiser and they seem to just jump out of the hole. No, seriously the way I improved my landing success through the ice was to go to small treble hooks. One small one on a 6' leader, a weight and Colorado blade above the leader seems to work for me. If you are on the flag right away, you don't risk gut-hooking them. I also recycle my Power Pro musky line and put it on tip ups. Also, I should add that I always  have a jaw-spreader and 8" forceps for quick and easy hook removal.
    • Iowabrewcrew
      Funny...seems like when the Emerald run slowed down up there 4-5 years ago, the fishing followed suit!
