TD pass to Shiancoe

15 posts in this topic

My god i've been asking for this kind of stuff on 1st down forever. Motion AP out left and now the defense has to think about what is going on. Lets hope we keep seeing some of this creativity.

Here we go again. These special teams have to be one of the worst in Vikings history. The returns that lead to good field position for Bears, a blocked punt and a TD off another punt screwed up by the returner. We should be winning by more than 14. What a joke. Now an ez interception at our owm 30. We are giving this game to them.

Yeah Chilly gets the offense going and then the special teams couldn't look any worse. But back to the offense, its good to see some of these 12-15 yard routes. As hard as teams play the vikings run game these routes should be open all the time.

I guess Chilly felt the need here in the 3rd to abondon what he had done in the 1st half.

Down 48 to 31 with one quarter left. If Chilli doesn't air it out in the 4th and give us a chance to win this game he should be fired immediately after the game. His inability to react to the other team's defence or the situation is so frustrating.

Of course he's not going to do the thing your supposed to-- It's Chilly, He has no clue what he's doing out there.

Chilly out -- Bill Cowher in.

Well this is one game i can't pin on Chilly's playcalling. You can question the squib kicks in the 1st half but you can't make the mistakes the vikings did today and expect to win in Chicago.

Its the first time in a long time that I think the players left this one on the field, not the coach.

Did Chilly turn a corner? I doubt it, but we'll see. I was impressed with the play calling on the opening drive. However, IMO the creativity fizzled after that. It was better than usual, but still not up to par. It's too bad they couldn't have continued to mix things up throughout the game they way they did on the first drive.

It's a good thing Booker dropped those 2 TD passes, or it would have been much worse! 4 INT's for Gus......ouch smile

Vikings might be as bad as the Badgers football team. Two perennial loses with no championships.

Did you mean perennial losers??? I wouldn't compare professional and college teams. The Badgers have been very competitive over the years winning Big Ten Championships and Major Bowl games. They're down this year for the first time in awhile...now I know how the Gopher fans have felt all those years at the bottom of the Big Ten.

GO PACK!!

Good catch! Yes. I did mean perennial "losers". Badgers have 0 championships just like the Vikings whereas the Gophers have 6. We've even got their old coaching staff. MN vikings are the WI badgers of the NFL. LOL.

    • Trump already signalling willingness to work with Democrats in order to bypass House conservatives....     http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/national-international/Trump-Attacks-Conservative-Lawmakers-Over-Health-Bill-417117223.html?_osource=SocialFlowTwt_BAYBrand   So now we have a supposedly extreme right-leaning Republican president cozying up to Democrats?   What would Uncle Ben think?....            
    • In order to determine which direction to go with healthcare, one fundamental question must be answered.  If an American walks in to a hospital with a sick child or with some sickness themselves and has a treatable medical condition, should a provider have a right to refuse service to that person or their child based on ability to pay?  We cannot have a true free market system unless we are truly callous enough to turn poor people away at the door.  I'm not there.
    • Ice is good in some areas of main lake but bad in areas with moving water / springs. All resort / outfitter access's are closed to vehicles but some are open to four-wheelers. side by sides, and snowmobiles including Morris Point, Long Point, Dales's and Arnesen's, which still has fish houses available as well.  As always, use a resort or outfitter road for safety as they are monitored daily.  Walleye bite has been good with many keepers among smaller fish. Fish are aggressive and having a flasher is helpful.  Jigging spoon tipped with minnow head or tail and a dead stick with a plain hook or small ice jig and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  17-33 ft.  Best colors glow pink/red and gold. Tip up fishing for pike on fire.  Many flags of northern pike in back bays and reefs.
      Rainy River spring fishing is ON!  The Rainy River is open all the way to Wheeler's Point. Birchdale, Frontier, Vidas, and Timbermill landings are open to all boats. Wheeler's Point will be open in a day or so.  Walleye fishing has been excellent. Many eater walleyes so far with a few monsters. Right now a 1/2 - 3/4 ounce jig is enough to get to the bottom while tipped with 1 or 2 frozen shiners. Pink, orange and gold are hot colors. Many sturgeon being boated as well.     Up at the NW Angle, ice conditions are unstable as current areas are opening up quickly.  Travel with caution. Many resorts using airboats at this point.  Fish houses on LOW can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  Pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN.  
    • I loved BBs post game the other nite after the canucks game,  he nailed it.  Guys got to step it up and play, outside of granny and staal, the rest look like they just started playing.  Lack luster for sure.  Im still hoping they come out and play like I know they are capable of but not looking good
    • This is what I have so far and I think I'll be changing A. Hackney B. KVD C. Ehrler D. Howell E. Lucas   I don't feel confidence about any of them except KVD haha Well I already made a switched and put Dafoe in bucket A for Hackney.
    •   I asked the same thing about a Month ago...must be a contract/money issue...we don't spend money foolishly 
    • Live Target for me. Tried a Lunkerhunt and it kept sinking and holding water.
    • Oh, the hat?  Correct, I was using clone stamp to build the hat.  Of all the problems with my photoshopped images, your issue is with the hat?  I thought the crude cutting and pasting was bad enough that nobody would notice the hat.      Still, you're a massive tool and I have accepted your challenge to do it better.
