What was the deal with the Vikings yesterday?

Down to Earth

Didn't get a chance to watch or even listen to much the game yesterday as I was supporting my wife in the Twin Cities Marathon. After the were able to win on the road in Washington, I thought the Vikes would have won yesterday. Offense? Defense? Coaching?

I'll probably get lambasted for this..but I thought Brad Johnson played horrible yesterday. The O line for as much as they are making should be able to open up slightly larger holes for the backs to run through. The Defence I thought did fine.. it was on Brad in my opinion.. to many throws to the other team, and too many into line mens hands.

Yes he wasn't sharp. He can't throw a long ball and then when he does get one close at the end Robinson can't make the catch. Also Childress' play calling on that last drive was HORRIBLE as was Brad's decision to pass into the middle of the field with time running out and no time outs. They never took one shot to the endzone on the last drive from the what 35-40 yard line???

Just not a good offense on this team. The line isn't getting it done at all as Dietz said...NO running game to support the pass and no passing to support the run. BAD combination.

I think Brad has played better games, but he laid out some pretty nice passes to receivers who can't catch the ball. Williamson was worthless yesterday, he couldn't catch the ball if his life depended on it. And Robinson missed a possible game-winning catch that was practically set in his hands on the last drive of the game. Both of Brads interceptions were just dumb luck. The 2nd interception he threw was a darn nice play by the Bills defense... there's not many receivers in the league that can even make a catch like that smile.gif

A lot of it had to do with our play calling in my opinion. 3rd and 14 and we run the ball... 3rd and 11 and we run the ball... I don't get it.

I give the Vikes defense a pat on the back, as they played well. Our defense is the only stabilizer for us right now, our offense doesn't seem to be performing...

I was thinking we should trade for London Fletcher in the offseason. He could work with our receivers and teach them how to catch a ball, since it's becoming quite obvious that none of our current receivers can.

You would think that the ability to catch the football would be a requirement for a first-round draft pick making $13.3 million in guaranteed money over 5 years, especially if that player happened to play wide receiver.

Ya cuz I'm like half their speed and pretty much suck at catching a football. However, I'd be willing to play for 3 mil a year.

Play calling was brutal again. Recievers stink it up again and the "O" line really stinks. This team could easily be 4 and 0 right now. Oh well I am just too used to it. Gotta like the defense though.

This team should lite the lions up like a x-mas tree.

I HOPE!!!!!!!!

GOOOOOOOOOOOO VIKKKKKKKKKKKESSSS

I'm not a Brad hater, but I think it would interesting to see how Jackson could do with the first team. Don't get me wrong Johnson is a good qb, but all the things that Jackson could bring to the offense...Interesting!!! wink.gif

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
