LIVE CHAT: Season Opener

This is it.  The first of sixteen games that will shape the Vikings 2010 season.  Please join us for a live chat during the game!

Lets review a few things you should know before we get started:

  1. Children can make for some of the most loyal football fans around, and some may visit this site.  So please, please, please try and keep your comments at a PG-13 rating.  Thanks!
  2. Please be patient on your first few comments.  I have to approve your first comments and then give you approval to chat in real time (without me approving every comment).  If your first couple of comments don’t appear for a few minutes, just be patient.  Once I get back from my beer run, I will approve you.
  3. It almost never fails that my computer goes haywire at least once every time I do a live chat.  If I disappear for an unusual length of time then I am probably rebooting and will be back ASAP.  This may take a while, but I will be back to approve your comments and keep things moving.  My apologies if this does occur.
  4. Cover-It-Live is a great program that allows us to chat, but it does have limitations.  I can only approve 25 users to live chat in real time.  After that, I have to approve comments on an individual basis.  So please use only one username in order to save room for others that would like to chat in real time.
  5. We’ll get started pretty close to kickoff time.

    How many times did AD rush the ball in the second half? I sure didnt see much intensity all night either.

    It was brutal Johnny….the weaknesses were exposed with the dbacks and wideouts…..and both lines played poorly.

    Harvin and Peterson are your two biggest weapons, and they had a combined 4 touches in the 2nd half. Not cool.

      Jesus Fozz I didnt know it was quite that bad, 4 touches between the two of them in second half???? AD was running very well and they just went into panic mode, typical Childo if you ask me.

    23 points????? for which team? gahggg!!!!

    didn’t expect that, but a rusty offense with a lack of timing in the passing game, especially w/o rice, makes sense early in the season with how pre-season went. takes longer for an offense to gel. defense did their job, just didn’t score enough

    easily could’ve been 24-9. hope we see ’em in january as a much improved team

    Yeah I actually thought the DBs played about as well as you could possibly expect them to given the circumstances. Completely quitting the rushing attack when you’re averaging almost 5 yards a carry is completely stupid though imo, as was not using Camarillo earlier in the game. Still though, limiting the Saints offense as well as they did is at least somewhat encouraging, especially with Cedric presumably coming back this week.

    I think McKinnie going out may have had a lot to do with the running game going south

    The bad-
    Gave up on the run, Chilly even admitted it. Kudos there. AD was set to have a big 2nd half, didnt give him the chance. Passing game was obviously out of sync, Blame Favre, or coaching staff. Jackson could have done better, well…uh, maybe thats goin a bit far. Albert Young shouldnt get anymore carries, Berrian? Uh…
    Defense didnt get near enough pressure, had some good blitzes, shouldve had more. Run D got out smarted, J.Allen has got to stay home on those cutback runs. Linebackers will fill that hole if he does.
    The good-
    Ran the ball very well AD had a good 1st half. The O-line held up pretty well, not great but did okay. Still need to get some attitude (Coach).
    Shank and Camarillo made some nice catches. So did Sausser, I never saw it hit the ground.
    Defense played a very good game overall. I mean, to hold the highest scoring O to 14 points is impressive. D-backs did a good job with what we had, 1st drive not withstanding. Sheppard did a fine job.
    A.Allen did okay, I wish he couldve held on to that pick.
    Its tough to win on the road against a good team, just ask any team that comes to our place. What were we last year, 4-4 on the road. Winning would have been great, but one loss aint the end. Its a marathon, not a sprint.
