A Warm Up To The First Vikes Victory!

50 posts in this topic

Booing and talking bad is going to do nothing for the Vikes (we have had about 40 years of doing this). Lets put what we have together and rally a win against the Panthers.

What can you do? Sit back and P/M about the last two games?

A positive attitude befits failure.

Last weekend, I think the biggest blame goes onto the crowd for booing a team that was up on points and not to the expectations of what the crowd wanted. That really yanked my chain and I am glad they lost. I would not want to win in front of a crowd like that. I would throw blanks to the side line just like TJ did after being booed.

This is the team we have and ain’t nothing changing. So, if you are a true Vikes fan, lets show some Purple Pride and forget about the last two loses and go forward.

Go Vikes grin!

P/M in another thread, not this one wink! Lets hear some positives

Where's that Kool Aid avatar when you need it?

BTW, I have some leftover Crow sitting in the fridge.

Well you better Vacuum seal that crow up, because I ain’t eat’ in it yet.

I am a crow coinsurer, I have been eating it every year of the last game since about 91’. Crow does actually taste pretty good wink Especially being a true Vikes fan.

But, being a true Vikes fan, I watch every game and have hope.

Turn the tides, turn the tides!

Go Vikes!!!

We have the BEST RB in the NFL and a pretty good Defense. I still believe.

Last I looked on channel 5, I did not see a line of FM'ers standing in front of Winter Park waiting to change a dang thing!

If we all think it is so easy, why ain’t we down their?

The fact is, this is what we have. All we can do is be positive and support our home team “The Vikings” from here on out (or at least until they are 0/6 and then we go fishing grin).

Bid2,

I am sorry, I was on the defensive. I understand now what you where referring to as the “Super Bowl Homeboy" comento. I figured I would let my post stand though. You are right dude!

Go Vikes

"Super bowl homeboy" Is a quote from the great Randy Moss. I do believe in the vikes. as bad as T-jack is, I will still be cheering(and complaining) every week. Say what you will, I actually do think the vikes have a chance. it is week 2(3) and I am not throwing in the towel yet. YET

The way this team is, if we can make the play-offs we have a chance to go somewhere, Defence and Running the ball are keys to winning in the play-offs.

Just gotta make it there and get a little bit of luck!

Go Vikes!

The V have a great running game, just need to get the passing game going. I think there going to end up with a winning record, just need to get the offence moving a bit.

It took a minute, but I got it grin

My motto towards the Vikes has been:

“You Start The Year Golden, You End The Year Frozen”

If we can pick up this year and get-in the groove (OF), anything could happen.

That is all it takes.

Having a positive Fan Base is what can bring this team to great things.

I know you FM’ers are sick of being negative. So lets bring out that positive swing.

Who knows? Some of the Vikes could be reading this wink.

HOPE 4 SALE!!

There are very few new units left, but there is a lot available in the "Bargain Cave" from those who figured out they might as well return it before the 30 day limit was up.

Any true Viking Fan knows that if anything is bought in the “Barging Cave”, it has no:

7 days, 14 days, 21 day or 30 return limit!

No returns at all baby, just go forward grin.

I will always watch, i may grumble and [Note from admin: Please read forum policy before posting again. Thank you.], but will always remain a vikes fan. I know T-jack is not the man, but I think our D can win for us. Heres my question. Did the D get worn out on sunday or did the colts just figure us out? We have a terrible offense except for AD just have to deal with it and hope the D can do it for us like the ravens did.

Hmmm....some positives...hmmmm

Okay, AP is great. If he stays long enough and stays healthy enough, I think he'll easily be the Vikes all-time best RB.

More positives....hmmmm.....we have a pretty good kicker!

And, let's see......oh yeah....the Vikes are bad enough that I will get more hunting time in this year! That's a positive, right??? grin

Oh yeah, one more! If the Vikes do bad enough this season, Chilli might get fired and we just might get a new qb that is worth something! That's a positive, right? smirk

Sorry, couldn't resist. But those are the only positives I can see coming out of this season with this coach and this qb. smirk

Not quite, this isn't high school football. You NEED to have some passing game to win, Sunday proved that. Someone PASS me that Kool-Aid, mine is already wearing off. I love almost everything about the Vikings, there are just a couple MAJOR problems I have with them. If they can establish any sort of passing game that isn't predictable, they may be able to squeak out a playoff spot.

Vikings fan for life!!! I complain when necessary, and celebrate when I can.

Vikes will not lose on Sunday! I'm very happy that AP is on our team!! We have a great lineman on both sides of the ball!!

We're 0-2 right now. The season is young. Even though we could have won both games, they were good teams. When the schedules came out 0-2 or 1-1 were very likely possibilities. Now is when we need to start firing on all cylinders and get hot!! We can take the next five going into the bye week.

I can't make it to the game this weekend, so I hope FOX 9 buys 3,700 tickets so I can watch it on tv.

I hope I'm wrong about Chilly being the problem, not the QB.

With the switch to Gus, I hope we start to look like a professional offense again.

I am anxious to see how it all plays out on Sunday!

I agree, Sunday is going to be interesting for sure! I will be able to see this drama unfold, front and center at the dome!

    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
