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

Where's Hank?

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.

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.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
