Are The Vikes Back In?

31 posts in this topic

Anyone watching the game?

Almost just saw Jackson back in grin.

Been a very slow and not good game for the Vikes, but they just got a break and might go forward now.

Anyone else think Cedric Griffin got embarrassed in this game? Seems to be a recurring trend for him.

Too many costly turnovers. 100% blame on not holding onto the ball. Defense, good job.

Horrible game. Defense did OK but they were on the field way to long. I still think a lot of it is still coaching.

That could go for the Packers as well, Rodgers got killed back there and ended up leaving the game. Sound familiar?

And Sandmannd, I'd have to agree, a lot of talent on the Vikings team and Childress should have them playing better than they are.

did anyone really expect a victory. i'm not joking, but with collins instead of young, the titans are the best team in the AFC (at least right now)

i was listen to the radio this morning, and they were talking about how they might have to start looking for a different coach. And that he just isnt doing it for the Vikings.

Whats your thoughts?

talent is present. the team is a coach/slightly above avg QB away from making a lot of noise

that being said though, you just don't fire a coach midseason, unless you are the rams (no one can save them)

They to me look like they are lost, with no direction. Defense has been the highlight of the team for this year, and that isn't saying much. NO offense to speak of other that AP.

Anyone want to change their prediction. I go with 6-10 maybe.

That would be a reach.

G.C.

the vikes have some major problems and a coach would be a good start, our offense is so predictable (sp) so some new coordinators are in need also.

<---- DO YOU THINK I WANT TO FIRE THE COACH?

Seriously though, as much as I hate to say it, I don't want to fire him mid-season either. It won't do any good at this point.

The next time we hire one, I want Ziggy to dig deep into his pockets for a proven coach (cut drop-happy skank-oe and berrian to save some dough). No proven coach is going to start mid-season.

I hate wasting another year of our players' careers playing for this dumba$$, but right now there's not much else we can do.

I say fire him today, whats it going to hurt! Make Leslie Frasier interm head coach! It might even fire up the team

Cowher? He is somewhat available. We got emabarassed bad, when the coach elects to punt with 2 minutes left that is waving a white flag in my book.

Farve is looking awefully good right now. I picture him in purple. Thank God for Madden09 and in Madden, I'm the head coach.

If you can't win in Real life, at least you can win in fantasy Life!

I say struggle through this season with him, them fire him. I would love to see Cowher.

I agree punting at that time in the game is absurd. Also, why did he review the spot of ball instead of the obvious fumble? Even if the play was called whistled dead before being recovered Tenn. would have gotten the ball at the spot of the fumble, well behind the first down, resulting in a turnover on downs.

    • We are on Lake Edward at WildWoods RV resort just north of Merrifield, MN. It is nice just driving up, unlocking it, playing for the weekend and locker her back up and leaving the frig on.  They let Atheists and Jesus freaks all in!
    •   My wife and I are starting to think about parking ours someplace. I'm tired of trying to get reservations and having to hook and unhook and all that goes with a weekend of camping. Plus I would like to have the toys available like 4-wheeler and boat.   We are looking at places up north. We know several people and like the Emily-Outing-Remer-Hill City area. I think you a further west, right? Brainerd area maybe?  
    •   5 years at one campground until they went private and wanted 60-70g's per lot with one-just-like-silly-me-o-en fees which were about what we were paying yearly already on top of that!  12 years where we are now with way bigger lots.
    •   Too bad the previous owner didn't know what they were doing. Never, ever use silicone on a rubber camper roof. I learned that the hard way many years ago.....   At least you have a good reason to have to go to the camper this weekend    How long have you been doing the seasonal thing?
    • Thanks for the reply, sounds about like what I expected and I really like the square tubing on the otters compared to clams round cheaper setup. Anyone seen any changes to the new otter lineup for this year? 
    • Last weekend spent some time re-sealing a small seam leak on a trim edge. Found out the owner before us had a leak on the same trim edge spot and left out a screw!! Also washed down the canopy and the ever reoccurring black streaks around the roof edge.   This weekend may go back and clean out and reseal a few other areas the passed own made a mess of sealing with sillycone! Using Butyl rubber this time as silicone can be pulled right off after a few years.
    • Lots of talk on sports radio and social media lately on whether the Wolves should workout a deal that sends Wiggins to Cleveland for Kyrie. Of course there would likely be some other bit players involved to make contracts work, but for all intents and purposes it's Wiggins for Kyrie.   As a fan, would you do it, yes or no?   I'm personally leaning toward "no." Kyrie is very good and still young. But he doesn't seem to offer much beyond scoring - not a prolific assist guy and his defense has never stood out. Perhaps most importantly, if reports are true and one of the main reasons he wants to leave Cleveland is so he can be the primary star on his own team - that makes me question what type of leader, team player, and locker room presence he would be. Say what you want about Lebron, but on the court he seems like an ideal teammate, almost too willing to make the extra pass. And Cleveland still has one of the best routes back to the Finals, why would you want to get away from that?
      Wiggins certainly has his faults, but he is a dynamite scorer. His defensive is poor, but at least the tools are there to be a good defender. If we lose him we also have a pretty big hole to fill on our roster. Whereas right now we have what appears to be a solid PG in Teague.    I wouldn't hate it if we landed Kyrie, but with our current situation I prefer Wiggins. All in all though, it's certainly fun to finally be in a situation where stars want to play here, not avoid Minny at all costs.
    • For many years my dad, uncles, etc have been heading to the Leech Lake area every spring and fall to fish for walleyes. There are usually 8-10 guys that go. Many of them are from the Barron, Wisconsin area. Since I've never really fished in Wisconsin, thought it might be fun to head to there one of these trips. Have always heard the Hayward area is pristine. Does anyone have a favorite lake, or possibly a favorite resort in the area I should add to the list when doing some research?  Walleyes are the only thing these guys are after.   I know there is a Wisconsin form, but it seems kind of quiet over there, so I'm hoping to get some opinions here.    
    • Well except for the owner. He's kinda ancient!!   We did the same thing with the frig to Dave on the first camper we had.
