Rather than complain about everything that went wrong for the Vikings today--Tarvaris Jackson's inconsistency, Longwell's critical missed field goal, bad non-calls by the officials, poor pass and run-blocking by the Vikings offensive line, key defensive mistakes against a patchwork Indy offense, and Shiancoe's stunning ability to make at least one mistake per game that ends up hurting Minnesota big-time--I will just say that all of today's problems (Tarvaris Jackson is only part of them, and he did look decent at times, with no huge mistakes) ultimately are the responsibility of the head coach. Either this Vikings team goes deep in the playoffs, or Childress has got to go the moment the season ends.

Childress should not be fired before the season ends. Bringing in a new coach with a new system will not help this veteran defense win now, nor would it make the quarterback play one bit better. I am not at all sure Gue Frerotte would be an improvement on Tarvars Jackson. And John David Booty, who looked lost, overwhelmed, and just plain awful in the pre-season, is not an option for a couple years at least. Jackson did not make any major mistakes today (Artis Hicks blew the block on Freeney that led to Jackson's fumble), and it was Childress, not Jackson, making those questionable play calls. For better or worse, we are committed to Tarvaris Jackson and Childress for the remainder of the season.

PLAYOFFS????LOL

The Vikings blew a perfect opportunity to beat the Colts. They didn't have their starting Center, Guard, L. Tackle and Tight End. How many Purple Rubes still think the Vikes will finish

10-6 to 13-3? crazycrazycrazyLOL

PACK 2-0

QUEENS 0-2

GO PACK GO!!!!

I say the Vikes go 13 and 3,,,,, 13 arrests and 3 convictions
LOL now you may just be on to something there and yes they may just be bottomdwellers all year no offence dweller but they look like a high school team out there with no QB my 2 cents.

I think Ziggy should think about spending some money on a QB. If I just dropped the money Ziggy did, and my team started the season 0-2........... I'd find a corner and cry myself to death!

I also heard this game was almost blacked-out. I can't believe he's a business man and hasn't realized offense sells tickets.

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
