In regards to the play calling on the last two drives today?

Why not run the ball on second and 2 or third and 2 on the drive with ~3 mins left? We needed a first down, passing the ball wasn't the answer. And then get the ball back with 1:40 left and throw it deep on the first play, wow didn't see that coming..........

And why was Bobby Wade the wideout the last long ball? He's much better in the slot. Put Berrian or Rice out there where they should be, they're wideouts and that's their job!

I can't believe this CLOWN of a coach. I am so sick of them not even having AP in at the end of the game. Did they watch the end of the packers game? Fricken IDIOTS. I am done with this until he is gone. What a waste of 3 hours.

All I can say about the last two drives was [PoorWordUsage]? I'm still scratching my head.

What happened to AP in the second half? And why the [PoorWordUsage] would they call a deep ball to Bobby Wade? I thought thats what they got Berrian for. Nothing about this team makes sense anymore. Next week we should start Pat Williams at corner, move Allen to linebacker, put Ferotte at Tackle, and give AP a week off. That should confuse the Jags and we'll walk away with a victory making the vikings the smartest team in football history.

Sorry, my rant isn't over yet. This team though talented is playing like garbage, absolute garbage. I don't blame the players I'm blaming the entire coaching staff. Every week they come right out of the gates blazing with boredom. Blah is the best way to descibe this team. We need to dump Childress and do it now!

OK I'm done for now!

Nothing against Gus, but he just doesn't have the arm for a long ball.

We can only hope that the Childress era will be history after this season.

Childress has got to go! After AP's performance at the end of last weeks game, where he happened to save their butts, how do you justify not playing the guy during their last possession this week?? Even AP was hot about it cause they showed him on the sidelines arguing with the running backs coach.

So the alternative sucks too. Whats your point. This team is CARP because of the terrible QB and the Terrible Coach. This isnt the only place ive heard this "lets support Gus" stuff. Call him out. he is a terrible QB. he belongs in the unemployment line with chilly.

We need ice on our lakes real bad. First game I watched since weak 4 when I swore I wouldnt watch another game untill Childress is gone. I guese I needed an afirmation today to make my decision the right one.

Why does Childress play into blitzes and not adjust? Oh thats right he sucks!

I can not recall if they even had a run play during the forth?

We are still tied for first whistle though!

Oh, dear. I have to say though, that first game was close.

all i have to say about our playcalling is that we better get new coachs.

WE HAVE THE BEST RUNNINGBACK IN THE FLIPPEN LEAGUE, AND ITS 4-1 AND WE ARE GOING TO PASS

WE HAVE THE BEST RUNNING BACK IN THE GAME, AND THE GAME IS ON THE LINE LATE IN THE 4TH QUARTER, SO WE HAVE CHESTER IN INSTEAD.

WE HAVE SO MANY OTHER PEOPLE THAT HAVE BETTER TALENT TO RETURN THE BALL

WE NEED TO COACHES THAT ARE SMARTER THEN A 5TH GRADER.

i dont like the 2nd and 2 call either, but it is the "football" call. since you should theoretically be able to pound two on third down 2nd and 2 is often the perfect time for a longer pass.

4th and 1 was a joke, first of all you dont drop back against a blitzing team on 4th and 1. second of all you don't throw it to a running back who catches a lot like troy williamson. the best rb in the league, but he has stone hands

also tjack sucks, but Gus is not going to get any better. we aren't making the playoffs with our remaining schedule. Tjack needs to play because he could potentially improve. I don't like him, but you have to see if upside develops because gus has reached his upside and its not so good

I don't agree Crappies, Tjack should be out of the league, he will never be anything. Coaching didn't just suck on the last two plays, look at the end of the second quarter. We are up, why can you never play for another touchdown. He has no clue what he is doing and is always out coached. Even when we win he is out coached but I guess the sun will shine on a dog's butt now and then too.

I didn't like the play call either, but it's hard to catch the ball when the d-back has a hold of one of your arms before the ball gets there.

I would rather see T-Jack at this point of the season. We are not going to make the playoffs, and if my some stuiped reason we do, we won't make it far. Get the kid back in the game, I am tried of seeing Frerrotes old legs and old arm!

Gus is what Gus is!! A backup QB. We dont have a Starter. All I can say is the Ravens,Tampa,and the Redskins all won the big one without a good QB. Gus has keeped us in every game he has started so far! Jackson is a run and gun QB. They dont last long in this league anymore.

After reading all these comments, I almost thought I was in the Bear Bashing thread! I think we are all in the middle of a mediocre division and there will be one winner (league says we have to let one of them win, LOL) but whoever takes this division will be "one and done" in the playoffs. Pack does not do much for me, Vikes don't seem to be pleasing the MN fans and I can assure you the Bears ain't cutting it here in the Windy! This could be one of the more amusing finishes in football history, could we have a winner of the division with a losing record?

How about our pathetic right tackle? How many times did his man walk by him and mess up a play or get a sack?

Our O line hasnt been good this year in my opinion. Not consistant at all.

With Guss at QB we need protection wich he isnt getting. He isnt the "answer" but he is the best we have now. Send Tjunk away and get a "starter" from someone or the draft.

Oh and give the ball to Peterson. grin

    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
    • In my opinion I would look for a nice used wingmaster 2 of my friends have bought a new 870 express about a year apart and they both had the same shell extraction problems. Maybe just a fluke but when I see two different people have the same problem with a Gun makes me think to find a different choice. Heck I have a Mossberg 500 that I treat like poop and I have never had one single malfunction.   I have shot my friends newer express and I can really tell the difference in quality beside my wingmaster  
    • I have Ice Kings.  They are in a word, awesome.  They are about 20-25 years old. Dang I hate dating myself but I have never even bought new liners for these boots.  They are probably one of the finest products I won.  I have never had so much as a chill i my feet.  I usually fish outside but if I am in a flip over, my feet are usually on the ice.  Again, never a chill.  I typically wear a midnight smart wool sock.   For some reason I have been considering new boots.  I guess it is the weight, I would love to have something that is not s heavy and also has better traction.   Today I visited Joe's Sporting Goods and saw some really nice boots (they have a great selection) by Muck, Lacrosse, Sorel, Baffin and some other Canadian made boot that looked very nice. I checked out the ice Kings........they are not the same boot as I have, they don't seem to have the quality to me.  They might be as warm but the rubber feels more stiff almost like it would crack, the uppers are solid leather, mine are leather and corder combo.  The liner also seemed thinner.   After looking at all the boots, I am surprised none offer water proof uppers. Also I am not entirely certain why some seem extend up to your knee with insulation.  Just seems like Over kill because most who would where these boots owed also have some sort of insulated pant on.  Overall I found the boots to be pretty heavy, I was surprised with 20 years past boots have not advanced more.
    • But will be missed but most.............you mad bro?    
    • You boxed yourself.   He was not supporting the Vikings stadium, he was saying that Republicans supported it and now are feigning outrage over the cook subsidy. And then not to be outdone the Republicans are now celebrating the Carrier subsidy.   Pretty much just reinforced his point.      
    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."........and all will be well.
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
    • Would you use a bobber on your rattle reel with these? I would think a lively minnow would pull the line out of the contacts.
    • My my, how the mighty have fallen...  I went back to the thread on the cook subsidy, and what did I find in the second post from you, on the second page....     Gee, you were ok with the 66 million because it wasn't a stadium or something, but now all butt hurt over 7 million of Indiana money?    Now that there is a funny joke.
