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.

    • nice story, fishing has a way of easing the pains we have. even when we hurt like crazy when done for the day we are looking forward to the next outing.
    • way to go, guys yep, the toms not about to give up even though its close to closing time have seen several strutters the past couple weeks and heard gobbles yesterday while fishing
    • great job. makes it 5 for 5 for team 5 congrats on a nice tom, 57 and that willl give our team score a boost
    • One More Cast      Photo by:  Roger Abraham   If any of you out there are regular readers of my tales, you have followed my recent struggles with back and knees.  I can’t put a name to this drive I have to be on the stream as of late.  It borders on obsession. I guess in my mind if I am healthy enough to fish the world is right with me and I am not getting old and feeble.      Today I was a witness to that I am not the only one.  Lots of anglers and hunters live to go out into the outdoors. .  It is what drives them.  It makes them feel alive.  It is their passion.  I told my fishing buddy Abe today my thoughts.  I told him how I was feeling a little old.  I guess my 60th birthday coming up next month makes me feel mortal.  Abe laughed and said I was a young buck compared to him.  Abe turns 76 this year.     Abe told me tales about catching big trout in tiny streams in Wisconsin and out west.  The twinkle in his eye when he reminisced I had seen before in many trout anglers.      We fished a stretch for 2 hours.  I sat down and rested often.  Abe kept on fishing. He got hung up in a box elder branch and lost a lure.  Abe told me box elders trees were his nemesis when he fished.   He asked me which tree was my kryptonite.  I told him, "ones with branches."  We both had a chuckle and continued fishing.   I thought to myself this guy is really driven.  I hope I am like him at 76.     We got to the vehicle and Abe wanted to continue fishing.  Abe’s waders sprang a leak earlier and he fell in the water a couple times.  He was quite wet.  He wanted to change in to dry clothes before we continue.  Abe peeled off his wet shirt and there were two things stuck to his chest.  He could tell by my questioning look he needed to tell me what was up.     Abe told me he had been having heart problems lately and he was supposed to be wearing a heart monitor.  He left it in the car because he was afraid of getting the electronics wet.  Here I have been whining about being old and the guy I was fishing with left his heart monitor in his vehicle.      Abe reassured me that he was in no danger and he could continue fishing.  I started brainstorming on a place to fish where it was not so hard walking.  Now that I knew he was not as healthy as he looked I wanted an easy place to fish.  I knew the place and it was upstream 5 miles.     We arrived at the well manicured field.  It looked like a golf green.  I picked the area because the farmer kept sheep and goats on the land and the weeds and brush were gone because of the goats.  We walked and fished.     Abe told tales of the old days and of fish lost and landed.  I walked a little forward to fish and looked back to check up on Abe.  What I saw when I looked back scared me and I immediately asked Abe if he was ok.  Abe was laying flat on the ground face down.  I thought the worst and he could tell by my face.  He told me to calm down.  His back was acting up and he needed to straight it out and that was the best way to do it.   We fished a little bit more and he took a photo of me.  He liked the lighting. He told me it captured the essence of trout fishing.  He did not have a camera.  I let him use mine.  He was not camera savvy and needed an impromptu lesson on how to use it.   We drove to his car and we talked about our love of the outdoors. We shook hands and headed our separate ways and promised to fish again soon.  As I drove home I smiled and thought about how I am going to be when I am 76.  I hope I am like Abe and my eyes still twinkle when I talk of chasing trout and I am still driven to make one more cast.
    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug.
