I see a desperation trade tomorrow. Probably something like CP84 for Joe Thomas. Offensive line clearly getting worse as the season goes on and it is not simply because of injuries - we need trust and stability on the line and Thomas will provide that.

The Vikes were out-coached and outplayed again. They looked like they gave up on this game in the second half.

This team may have gone into the bye week full of itself and believing it's own hype. They just received their second wake up call in 8 days. They're talented but deeply flawed and in danger of seeing their division lead and season start to slip away if they don't get their act together next week.

Hard to believe Zimmer would let them get full of themselves but I guess it is hard to control a bunch of 20 year old millionaires.

Yep... it's not really his choice. All he can do is caution them against it and try to keep them focused.

I agree. And now there is little hype to believe in.

I firmly believe the Vikings flaws go beyond just the players, particularly on offense.

I received my Chinese Bradford jersey in the mail during the bye week so I superstitiously blame myself.

Oh, they do.

Zimmer looked somewhere between disappointed and despondent in his press conference (with a dash of angry thrown in for good measure). As he said in response to once question, "We didn't make any plays. They made all the plays".

A question nobody really seems to be asking: Where has the pass rush been? One sack in two games? Really?


Also, please fire Norv Turner. It's just time.

On #Vikings offensive line @PFF ratings T.J. Clemmings was brutal at 24.8, Jake Long crummy at 48.1 and Brandon Fusco mediocre at 51.1.

On @PFF ratings only two offensive linemen to have OK nights were center Joe Berger at 83.7 and guard Alex Boone at 74.3.
