    Ok. Now trade Bozo Berrian for a safety or anybody who catch a football consistently.

    I read this is the guy the Dolphins cut to make room for Ryan Cook. Not exactly a ringing endorsement.

    This signing doesn’t make sense… Yesterday could have been worse, Nothing in the 2nd half was disapointing to say the least, I felt Sorry for the Defense.
    Was stuck out there allot…

    With the lockout, Not allot of time together,Plus all the changes…

    i thought we might make a move after this first game cuz the whole year’s salary isn’t guaranteed now. could be more, too. building blocks. blocking buildings. er, sumpthin like that

    I watched the game again. Far too much emphasis from the media on us blitzing…..we actually dropped into coverage alot too…..hence the underneath gifts. We had the ball one quater less in time on offense….our defense was being asked alot of, and they arguably did well.

    ” There were more passing yards in Week One (7,842) than any week in NFL history. To put that in perspective, teams averaged 245 yards passing.”

    Hey, didn’t Viking set a franchise passing yard record last week?

    “If we are ever, to have a championship team, the first thing we gotta do, is take all the coaches out in the street, and shoot ’em down like dogs!”

    [Paraphrasing from what movie, gang?]

  8. Lost Viking says:

    The Joe Webb Wildcat cameo was worse than unproductive. It coincided with a turning point in the game.

    Would like to hear some useful ideas on how Webb could contribute to the offense. For example, we could insert him at the beginning of the games to thrown McNabb’s first pass. Then McNabb could take over from there.

    And I’m puzzled by Percy out of the backfield. Wasn’t he supposed to be the Wide Receiver….what’s he doing taking AD off the field to run outside. I’ve always liked AD running wide and off tackle as he can punish cornerbacks.

    ‘Defensive end Jared Allen said no matter what’s called, it’s up to the players to make things work.
    “There are times when coach is going to make a bad call and we got to make him right,” Allen said. “And there are times he’s going to make a great call and maybe we don’t play it well, but someone is in position.
    “At the end of the day, the coaches can make the call, but it’s the players who have to make the play.” ‘

    I think we need to acknowledge that we are drawing a lot of negative coaching conclusions from one game. If this is still how we look at the midpoint of the season, I’m gonna agree with some of these comments. Whether it was the wildcat or the number of times Petereson did or didn’t run… people… its ONE game… a seven point loss on the road to a concensus playoff team from the other conference. That’s not a coaching crime, friends. They tried some things… some didn’t work. Ok. Look at the film, do some coaching, and lets see what happens next.

    This is the problem with believing the home team will always win. When they probably shouldn’t, and don’t, we turn on them. I say we give Musgrave, McNabb, Leslie and the staff some time to put this team together and in motion. I personally believe there are some very good days ahead for the 2011 Vikings.

    Amen, coach, Amen. People gotta try not to get to
    high, nor too low over single games.

    Reminds me of Groucho Marx saying:
    “I’ve had a wonderful evening, but this wasn’t it.”

    Dolphins released B. Sapp. Come back to Minnesota benny. We could use another defensive back.

    • Lost Viking says:

      Dead right on Benny’s ability. Classless Dolphin coach Sparano should be the one walking the plank. Soon.

      But Asher Allen would prefer to keep the roster CB spot.

    I just want to see how soon T Jack gets “jerked around” in Seattle, and oh look, Cindy missed her first game. The game could’ve been won. If the coaches are able to use the momentum. They should’ve stuck with Peterson and Harvin when they were hot, not go to Toby and Blazier. Without that, it was obvious that Rivers would come back, at home, early in season. It’s on Musgrave. HE needs a killer instinct. Does HE
    have it? We’ll see. What happened to Judd Zulgad, anyone?
