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!!!!

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.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
