Is it just me?

18 posts in this topic

Is it just me or does anyone else get that throw something at the tv feeling during Vikings games? Not saying that I could coach or play in the NFL, but seriously what is the problem? Are we just doomed to be laughing stock of the league?

Worse is after the game today we'll all be able to see the Colts and Pats play with perfection on both sides.

I dont know.. I just watched a guy set the single game rookie rushing record AND the NFL single game rushing record. Not sure I'd call that laughing stock.

The 109.9 yd FG return for a TD was kinda funny...I thought.

SOOOOO, now the Vikes are on the defensive end of both the longest run from scrimmage, Dorsett, and the longest td play in NFL history. NICE

sorry this was a halftime rant. ap had an awesome game and the o-line clicked, defense made good plays, and our third string qb came in and played w/o any big mistakes. all in all it was a good feeling win. this was an example of what this team is capable of, so why don't we see it week in and week out.

question is, now can we go into cheesehead land and dominate a good packers team and make it two in a row.

consistency, ups and downs, stupid penalties, questionable decisions, and not playing to expectations are what have upset me all season.

Exactly! And when I don't like what I see, for instance the end of the 2nd quarter, I eat then take a nap. Beats working. Fun game to watch, the parts I was awake for anyway... wink.gif

I don't think I could be happier as a Viking fan at this moment considering how things looked after the end of last season the upside/future of this team is encouraging to say the least.

Go Vikes.... grin.gif

What a game, things are looking up! Defense looked really good, qb looked decent, even jackson looked his best, and rice has a good future if they would start throwing to him more, and A.P. Wow this kid is the stud, if he keeps this up he will give the season record a good shot! Just think if he was the starter in the first 6 weeks! They need to find a way to get AP the ball 25-30 times a game. The Vikes are a good reciever, and a qb a way from our first super bowl win. One more thing, Childress didnt seem to make any game loosing decisions, besides maybe the 57 yd fg attempt, but that wasnt so bad, looks like he figured out that if he gives the ball to AP, he gets a win! grin.gif

The Vikings have a awsome running game, with AP and CT, run defense is unbeatable, good punter, I am pretty sure Rice will turn out to be a good reciever, if the Vikes had a calvin Johnson, and picked up Drew Breese, do you think they wouldnt be unbeatable? I know are pass defense has not been par, but they sure looked good yesterday!

That run game was the result of some incredible offensive line play. Those guys OWNED the line of scrimmage. They also had great blocking on the outside and downfield as well. Peterson gets all the credit but he wouldn't have had that day if it wasn't for the linemen. Chester Taylor ran the ball fairly well too when he was in.

I love it when the offense can run!

Can you imagine our running game getting better?

It will if we ever get some hint of a passing game and teams can't stack 8 or 9 in the box anymore.

Awesome game, Peterson... AND THE ENTIRE DEFENSE. WAY TO GO!

Lets see what next week brings. Will the D return to sitting back and taking it, or will they continue to aggressively blitz and control the game? I would guess the Pack will be ready for either scenario, so STAY AGGRESSIVE. If we do, it's almost guaranteed to result in a Farve pick or two.

Now we've seen what they're capable of in the positive sense grin.gif. With a lot of luck, we hopefully won't again see what they're capable of on the other end of the spectrum. Odds are they won't maintain that type of excellent gameplay week after week, but hopefully we've seen the last of the embarrassing futility displayed over the past year and a half.

A guy can dream anyway, right?

GO VIKES.. !!!

I agree, but I have to add one more thing- a head coach, too

Did anyone else notice that T Jack looked pretty happy to be standing on the sideline?

Good qbs do struggle in their first season or two, but he's not getting the experience he needs when he misses half the year with injuries.

You also have to take into account that it was San Diego that they played. That being said, I haven't seen that poor of a team in awhile? The queens did stop the run, but that was all San Diego could of possibly offered from what I seen.Their QB looked worse than ours!

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
