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!

The lions will not go 0-16, because they have to play the vikings

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

    • HAs anyone here used this software to map your lakes?  Has anyone downloaded the lakes that are on the shared cloud?  I have a hook 7 and some of the lakes around have been mapped, it would be nice to download them and use that instead of the other map.
    •   Is that the work around garmin uses to avoid licensing the Lowrance patent?    Or was the patent on something different?
    • I was on private land that I have shot 8 birds in 10 seasons.Over 300 acres of prime land by Caledonia but none in our group of 4 scored this year. Just makes me more excited for next year. Might try the last season but will probably be into fishing by that time. Good Luck to All.....
    • Love the zoom horny toads. Man they can have some vicious blowups. Im a huge fan of buzzbaits so to be able to use this frog like a buzzbait in some thick weeds is awesome.
    • Lilacs are really leafing out here in central MN.  On my few walks through the woods, the mushrooms have been few and far between: No more scarlet cups, no pheasant backs, no oysters. I haven't went to my morel spots because there's no hurry and I don't want to trample them, but I doubt they're up very far around here if the pheasant backs haven't even fruited. I'll be back out today before the rain checking on things, though. 
    •   Just stating the facts as they stand Bear.  You listen or read at all what the national NHL analysts are saying/writing about the Wild's present/recent past/future?  I've said before I love your postivity and I'm glad too that MN has an NHL team. Spin is required to hide the facts, spin is needed to turn what is not good and make it sound good, spin is needed to make it sound like you are doing your job well when in fact we are no closer than we were 3-4 years ago.  Seriously....any chump could have improved the team from what it was when Fletch took over...you and I could have done that. If you just look inside the box, wow we are much improved; but if you look outside the box and compare yourself to the rest of the league you realize we really have not climbed the ladder very much...16th, 15th, 14th, 13th, 12th, 11th, 10th in the NHL does not cut it for me...for you it does and thus our differences and our ability to argue/discuss this back and forth.
    • Your best angle of attack should come like this: Do you need to control your trolling motor with your sonar? if so you have 2 choices. Lowrance uses motor guide and H-bird goes with Minnkota. If that is not a requirement than the field is wide open. IMO don't go with a screen smaller than 9" with side imaging there is so much detail that its hard to see on a 7" screen. I'd stay away from garmin or any unit that doesn't have a true down scan ducer that uses software to produce a down scan image there is just too much stuff lost without it.   
    • It's a pop or in my case an ice tea bottle with several 1/8" holes near the bottom of the bottle.  I then roll up paper towels and get as many as I can stacked inside the bottle.  When I need to cough I unscrew the top and cough into it.  It definitely softens then noise to more of a rush of air sound.
    • I use the standard frogs (non-Popping) as i feel i can always pop a non-popping.  I do like to throw into cover and hit those pockets and open area's ... there is times when walking it really makes a big difference on strikes.  Can't wait for the season!!  i was just experimenting with the frogs and not bass fishing yet.   We will keep in touch and see how ya all are doing with the frogs this summer.  I am intrigued also with the Zoom Horny toad, ready to try those also.   Cret
    • What spin is needed? We lost, this happens all the time in the playoffs, that is why they play the games. Our very own team has bounced two division leaders in the past 4 years, are we going to give them credit for those series wins or just completely focus on the negative and whine about everything. There are plenty of positives to take away from this season, really there is a ton to be excited about going forward if you don't solely focus on all thing negative.
