New Monday Night Era

31 posts in this topic

That could very well be the worst opening to a Monday Night game that I can ever remember.

Where's Hank?

Also, Joey T needs to lay off the makeup shocked.gif

Otto my main man, how it be goin' my brotha from anotha motha? Long time no chat? It's good to hear from you.... all I have to say is our teams are going in different directions... we cut Pro Bowler kick returner/#1 WR Robinson because of what he represents and you guys sign him... ouch huh?! How 'bout them Vikes on the road, playing on grass against a playoff team from last year??? just a nice win! laugh.gif here's what was written:

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) -- The Minnesota Vikings have a new coach, a new attitude, and an old quarterback who knows how to win.

Brad Johnson led a 54-yard fourth-quarter drive, capped by Ryan Longwell's 31-yard field goal with one minute remaining, to give the Vikings a 19-16 victory over the Washington Redskins on Monday night.

The victory made Brad Childress a winner in his head coaching debut, and made Johnson a winner for the 66th time as a starter two days before his 38th birthday. Johnson has won an impressive 61 percent (66 of 109) of his starts with four teams in his 15-year career.

The Redskins had a chance to tie after Longwell's kick, but John Hall -- who has struggled with leg injuries for the last two years -- was wide left with a poorly hit 48-yard field goal attempt with 12 seconds remaining.

"My heart was kind of stopping there. I was tying my shoes getting ready for an overtime game," Johnson said. "Fortunately, it went a little wide left for us and turned out great."

Chester Taylor, the Vikings' free agent signing from Baltimore, rushed 31 times for 88 yards and a touchdown, upstaging Clinton Portis' surprise return for Washington. Portis, who spent the week downplaying his chances for the game because of a shoulder injury, entered the game late during the Redskins' first drive and finished with 39 yards on 10 carries.

The loss subdued a Washington crowd that turned the stadium became a sea of fluttering red, white and blue as they waved American flags to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

I'm worried that Williamson will have a hard time taking that #1 WR spot


He would have had a great game if he could hold on to the ball. Maybe we should put some glue on his hands before each game. ooo.gif

If Williamson would have caught half the passes that were thrown to him the Vikes would have won by three TD's and Williamson would have racked up about 150 yds grin.gif

I was happy with our running game. Chester Taylor wasn't given many chances to break through for TD's, but the one he was given he made count and took it home. He also juked well and helped lead the offense with his first game as a Viking. I'll take that... and the 12 FF points he got me grin.gif

Good addition in Longwell... but Klewy is questionable wink.gif

Oh, and Brad Johnson still has game smile.gif

Actually the glue would be better served if placed on his elbows and hip as his hands did not even touch the ball on those two awful dropped balls. Where was the concentration? Ohhhh well, Nice Win on the road. grin.gif

The best part about last night's game: NO TURNOVERS!

Thats because BJ knows when to throw the ball away, unlike Culpepper... only one questionable decision on his part... the bomb to Williamson in the end zone while he was triple teamed.

It sucks big time that I cant watch Monday Nights at work anymore!

Vikes looked good for a 1st game. Packers will be lucky to get 6 wins.

Actually, they may be lucky to get 4 wins. Chicago is tough, so I'm not going to pass complete judgement after week 1. I'm curious has to how they will come out against the Saints this week.

Some more good reading from ESPN:

Oh Ye Mortals, Trifle Not with the Football Gods: Few football-game scenes are more ridiculous than when a defender dances and struts after a routine play. On Sunday in the Texans-Eagles game, David Carr simply slipped and fell down; Philadelphia defender Trent Cole one-hand-touched Carr to end the play. Cole then jumped up and danced as if he'd just won the Heisman Trophy. Excessive defender dancing may tempt the football gods to exact vengeance. In the first Monday Night Football game, early on Troy Williamson of Minnesota beat Carlos Rogers of Washington, then dropped what would have been a long touchdown pass. Rogers jumped up and danced and strutted, pointing to himself -- as if he'd just done something magnificent, rather than been beaten and the beneficiary of good fortune. Skies darkened and lighting flashed above my house as the football gods signaled their displeasure with this rodomontade.

Some parts of the Redskins' organization went all-out at FedEx Field on Monday Night Football; it just wasn't the team.

Later in the game Marcus Robinson badly beat Rogers for a touchdown reception, exacting the penalty. Tactics note: On the Robinson touchdown, Minnesota faced third-and-5 on the Washington 20. The Redskins rushed four, dropping seven into coverage, with both safeties in standard Cover 2 dropping deep. The Vikings sent out four receivers. Yet with seven to cover four, Robinson was singled on Rogers in the corner of the end zone. Both Washington safeties stood in the center of the field like topiary, covering no one

New Monday Night Era....What a disapointment. ESPN did a woeful job.

I enjoyed the Vikes win though....

No kidding. On several occasions, they were more concerned about showing the guys calling the game while flapping their jowls than they were about showing the game itself. As if the reason we were watching was to listen to those bozo's...would be just as well off to turn on some Zeppelin, ZZ Top, Pink Floyd, etc. Thank goodness for the mute button; great Vikes win! grin.gif

Try Paul Allen (P.A.) A.M. 1130 the FAN during Vikes games. He really gets into it.

Not sure how that'll come in post-nightfall being AM & all this far south. Some of the FM stations carry it but again, not sure how much delay time there is between satellite TV & the radio. Haven't been overly impressed with the KFAN crew when I've been travelling and forced to listen to games on the radio. A lot of babbling but at least they cover the game. Greg Coleman usually says something stupid & sounds like he has a cattle prod stuck up his butt! Got spoiled on the Ray Scott's, Brad Nessler's, Stu Voight's, Joe McConnell's and Dave Huffman's over the years I guess but anything has to be better than those ESPN clowns. At least I don't have to look at 'em. Thanks Farley, will give it a whirl. cool.gif

I don,t know if it is me or if the crew at ESPN seems to like the east coast so much that they ignore everybody else. Hate to sound like such a homer but I hated the monday nite football BS. Not the game but the crew covering it. Maybe thats why they want to show the Yankees twice on ESPN this weekend when there playing a team that is 11.5 out.

Only took a few minutes of watching Monday Night coverage to remind me what the E in ESPN stands for. It's just like the ingredient info on food packages the most prevalent ingredient is listed first. Tony Kornheiser has the perfect face and voice for print media. Dropping him would help reduce the East coast bias. Give me radio coverage any time. Ol Sneller

ESPN's coverage was HORRIBLE. One guy is a washed up pinhead ex-footbal player, the other is a mediocre, at best, beat writer, and there main guy is a golf anylyst for ABC. what a joke. The worst part of the whole thing was the fact that they spent a half an hour talking to Jamie Frigggin Fox about Tom Criuse. Did they forget that There was a game on????

I watched the game with my old man and we found ourselves yalling at them, not a good sign for them(or us tongue.gif ).

It was good game though from a football stand point.

GO VIKES

Oh Boy, Fox is laying another egg on this broadcast. Is this the cameraman's first game? Missed shots, jerky movements. And who's this new commentator......yikes.

Time to mute and pod up Paul Allen on the radio.

Glad I was at the game... I gotta tell you after Delhomme's fumble off the helmet in OT was overturned... I've never heard as many F'en heimers flying anywhere!! What a horrid call, good thing we were still able to perservere!

I gotta admit, I not really one for going after the refs, but that "forward pass" was one of the worst decisions I've ever seen. I'm sorry, but the ref has got to be able to use his best judgment and not go by the book on some of these reviews.

      First time up in Brainerd in 3 years. Went to big trout on Friday, thinking it would be a guarantee (which it usually is). Nope! Not even the rock bass were hitting! Only ended up with a couple pike and a couple largemouths. The inspector at the boat launch was showing me some pics of a couple lake trout this one guy had caught a few days earlier, a 34 and 36 incher! Saturday we were going to fish gull, but it was jam packed with people! Was there a tournament going on? Ended up at a secret little lake where my wife caught bass and pike one right after the other, while I couldn't get a bite to save my life! Was good to be back up there after a 3 year absence. Hopefully I'll find the time to get up there again.

      Very nice walleye no matter how the picture came out! Do not see many of those each year!

      We ended up keeping 9 walleyes and releasing 3 slot fish between 19" and 23".

      Here's the proof of the 28" I told you about today cliff. Unfortunately this picture doesn't make this fish out to be nearly as impressive as she was in person. I'm gonna need to work on my selfie skills.

      Interesting headline in the Virginia newspaper this morning. The Landing is being sued by past employees for not paying minimum wage, not paying overtime, and keeping up to 50% of the employees tips that were received via credit card.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.
