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.

    • DonBo, good luck on your bow quest,  your father raised you well!  What a great way to celebrate life by sharing a hunt together.
    • My family has LIfe 360 on our phones. It allows you to know exactly where that phone is at all times. My teenage kids were not to hip on the idea until my wife explained that you either have the app or you don't have a phone. It already saved a phone. My son dropped his phone in the middle of a bean field last summer.  We were able to use the app to drive a wheeler to within 10ft. Well worth it.
    • My personal opinion on the backup pumps is that they are a stop gap to buy you enough time to minimize the amount of water that backs up during a torrential storm while you get your primary pumps on a generator.    Obviously the biggest factor is to figure out how much water can enter the drainage system during the heaviest downpours and that can help you decide what gpm you need to stay ahead of the water. If you get a bigger backup pump then you will burn through a battery faster.    If you don't get a lot of water in the system ever and if the sump pump only runs periodically during even heavy rains and wet weather then you can get more run time from a smaller system.    There really isn't a way to say exactly what you need to be 100%safe unless you know exactly what flows you have.
    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
