Re: Vikings Vs. Packers Postgame Thread

We'll just agree to disagree here. I don't think you can coach based on what Gary Anderson did in 1998, but reasonable people can disagree. I'm not suggesting Zimmer coach based on what Gary Anderson did in 1998. As Is see it, the "math" is simple: rookie kicker + two bad misses on the day + hostil...

Re: Vikings Vs. Packers Postgame Thread

I'm just funnin' with you, Jim. I know. That's why I responded with a joke(which I hope was clear). Sure, Zimmer deserves criticism, but not IMO for going for the field goal. Do you honestly believe a coach should risk a turnover in the red zone with less than a minute left in the game because he d...

Re: Vikings Vs. Packers Postgame Thread

You don't care for Mike Zimmer, do you? I kiss a photo of him every night before I go to sleep. Back to the point: if Priefer is to be held accountable for Carlson's negative impact on yesterday's game, then logically, Zimmer and Spielman should be too. If "the god damn coach" on special teams is a...

Re: Vikings Vs. Packers Postgame Thread

It's a great question. Special teams cost us the win today. All we needed was average special teams play. Priefer has to be held accountable. And as much as I believe in Mike Zimmer, if he fails to hold Priefer accountable, then he's just as culpable. This was a travesty today. Zimmer's already jus...

Yes.

When they were lining up for the final FG try I said to myself, "well, at least we didn't lose to GB. I can live with a tie."

And then we tied and I couldn't stop laughing. Classic Vikings today. The stuff we put up with is insane.
:lol: It really is... we're all nuts.

Re: Vikings Vs. Packers Postgame Thread

Crazy game. My one silver lining to the storm clouds? I believe that with Cousins, Thielen and Diggs we finally have an Offense that can put up points in a hurry when it needs to. There's a lot of season left to play. Agreed and it's nice to see an offense like that. I see as many reasons for optim...

Re: Vikings Vs. Packers Postgame Thread

I was confident he'd make it. He missed two longer attempts earlier. I thought theres no way he'd miss a relatively short try . I don't think it was that obvious. I used obvious because it is obvious now, after the miss, that trusting Carlson to make that FG was a mistake. And I don't remember the ...

Re: Vikings Vs. Packers Postgame Thread

There were a few questionable coaching decisions. Not challenging the knee on ground reception, pooch kick. But I can't fault for going for the win at the 20yd line with a fg. I tipped ball int or sack and we would be questioning why didn't they just kick the fg. Letting the clock run and playing f...

Re: Vikings Vs. Packers Postgame Thread

According to Chris Tomasson on twitter: "Mike Zimmer said the Vikings did everything at the end they could to win" Zimmer needs to re-think his philosophy. They had the time, field position and weapons to take a shot or two to the end zone and win that game instead of putting Carlson back out there ...

We don't have a kicker or 3rd WR.


Jarius Wright would have been a handy player to have around today, eh?

Re: Vikings Vs. Packers Postgame Thread

The title for this game should be How to Squander a Gift because that roughing call against Matthews was a gift. To the Vikings credit, they took it and scored, then tied the game up with an excellent 2-point conversion. 3 things we learned today: 1.) Cousins may very well be worth the money. I doub...

Re: Mike Zimmer opens up about health, retirement, Eagles, Tony Sparano, quarterbacks and what keeps him going

Similar to your take. For one, I was just excited to see it on my 60" television. So much so that I went ahead and booked Sunday Ticket for the season. I'm no longer the poor lad with vows of asceticism that I once was and life is too short to not follow your bliss. :D :lol: I loved seeing the boys...

Re: Mike Zimmer opens up about health, retirement, Eagles, Tony Sparano, quarterbacks and what keeps him going

Jim, what did you think of the opener? Miss hearing your thoughts around here! Thanks. Regarding the opener: I liked the win! I thought the Vikes looked pretty rough around the edges, which is not unexpected in week 1. The defense came through with big plays when they needed them and Harrison Smith...
