Vikes vs Washington

19 posts in this topic

Come on guys, no-one is talking about this game? Its got to be the Vikings biggest game of the year. What are your predictions?

We dont have anybody to talk smack with like the Bears or the pack, but what do you think? Do the Vikes stand a chance? They didnt look to good last week, are they going to turn it around and kick the snot out of the Skins?

I will guess Vikes by 13! smile.gif

Go Vikes!!!

It should be a good game depending on which teams show up? If the queens from the Chicago game show up they will be leaving with a loss. Washington does have an offense, albeit not a strong one. I think Washington wins this one in a tight game 24-17.

I think the Vikes had 4 great games in a row...and it was time for a bad one. They had it...and still won.

Now, they will be back to a good game and will win by 10 points over washington.

Is there anyway that the vikes can clinch that wild card this weekend even with a saints win? Or do the saints have tie breakers over the vikes?

Should be a good game. Washington is pretty good, just a lot of close losses. This game is looking like a rematch of the 1988 season finale between these two teams. Anyone remember that one? Doug Williams comes in and leads them to victory in OT?

I do remember the NFC championship game I think in 87 when Darrin Nelson dropped a Whisky Wade pass in the end zone to send the game to OT. He later blamed it on a broken figer. ANybody else remember?? I may have the year off but it was give or take 2 years around 87-88 season.

Vikes Skins this year is a pre playoff game.

The Saints have to loose, and the Vikes win in order for the Vikes to clinch.

If the Saints win out and the Vikes drop one game of their final two making both teams 9-7---Saints would go to playoffs. I'm hoping both Saints and Giants lose this weekend and then the Vikes are looking really good.

yes i remember that game. MN had a great year in sports from twins to The Hockey tournament, the only stain was Nelson dropping a pass in the endzone wide open with seconds left. I can still picture it.

I feel sorry for America that they have had too watch this viking team on national TV 2 weeks in a row. Did the coaches gameplan this week? Did the players have the week off of practice? I mean this is beyond pathetic. confused.gif

Clutch game=CHOKE!

Nice vaunted offensive line work.

Tavaris is panicky, and we're gettin out-coached big time.

Big Time.

I see absolutely no heart or passion on this team tonight. It is so simple, everyone stacks the line against peterson so he cannot run. All it takes is for our sorry excuse of a quarterback to be able to complete some passes (to his own team) and waaalaaa, suddenly the defense will be honest and there is room for Peterson to run. With tavaris at QB I see no hope.

Horrible, with no passing game Peterson isn't going to be able to run at all. And for Cripes sake, can someone tell Jackson to eat a ball now and then?????

I think there is a lot too be said for coaches putting players in a position too succeed. I know he threw some bad balls, but i think its more than just coincidence that all of a sudden with 5 minutes too go in the 3rd Jackson started throwing the ball well and the offense took off. It took our so-called offensive guru of a head coach 40 minutes into the game to figure out how to get the ball moving. The offense was way too predictable. How hard is it too figure out that if you spread the offense and get the defense spread out a bit that you can run the ball. If a team is going too cram 8 or 9 people in the box all game, you can't sit and run nothing but tight sets. It plays right into the defenses hands. They run blitz and if its a pass play well they are all over the QB before he can even think of reading whats going on. 40 minutes into the game he decides too shake things up? The 49ers and bears did the same thing against the vikes. Did he really think the skins werent going too do the same? I mean come on, are you watching film Childress? You couldnt see that defensive scheme coming? I thought for a nice stretch of games that Childress as much as anyone had started too figure things out and was finally putting players in the best position too succeed. This game for 40 minutes looked an awful lot like the games earlier in the year against the chiefs and lions. Just absolutely horrible gameplans. I came away from the 49ers game thinking that ok, this team does have a good defense and they did a good job. I came away from the bears game thinking, ok its the bears, a division foe, their defense came too play, but its not good that Peterson got shut down again. I now think ok, our coach doesnt have it figured out and it now looks like teams know what we are doing everytime the ball is snapped. Its way too predictable.

I agree that Chilly has no clue how to run an offense. But the reason that we started to move the ball later in the game is because their defense loosened up and was letting us have 6 yard outs and slants.

Chilly sucks, Tavaris sucks. I'm about ready to get rid of both of them. I just cannot understand why or how a coach can be so stubborn that he will stick with a QB that it is obvious doesn't have what it takes. He still claims he will be the starter next year though.confused.gif

I think we need to make a push to get a QB from Cleveland or see if we can get McNabb to come here for a one or two year stint. Then draft or trade for a young upcoming kid and let them learn a year or two on the sidelines. While they're at it, convert Tavaris to receiver, he looks like he could do okay there, athleticly speaking at least.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
