What was the deal with the Vikings yesterday?

10 posts in this topic

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

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.

      Is the access on 22 still open at least?  I was hoping to get the boat out and chase a few cats Sunday, maybe it won't be an option?

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....
