Bottom line is that if you score more than 30 points you should win that game. However, if you turn the ball over 25 times, you should lose the game. Basically, the second part was true and the Vikings lost in another strange game. Hopefully they can use the upcoming bye week to straighten things out.
Im glad the offense played well enough to score 41 points. That is seriously the highest total in the last 3 years, and most of it came ON the offensive side of the ball. For the first time in a while, I wasnt scared during 3rd and 7's and it seemed like they had it down. There was a problem though, the other side of the ball and special teams fucked them in the ass.
Another game thrown away by special teams. Sadly it wasnt even punt/kick returns by Hester or missed tackles. It was bonehead fucking douchebag plays that cost us a big win IN Chicago. Charles Gordon should not be returning punts, I say that every time he goes out there. Charles Gordon shouldnt even be playing, let alone returning punts. Secondly, Chris Kluwe and the Long Snapper should be running laps today.
As Marshawn Lynch would say, "Beast Mode G I swah tat homes runz flah ditty flah on tem biz's." Either way, he had his best game of the year against a defense that hadnt allowed a 100 yard rusher all year. Thats right, fuck them biz's. The 54 yarder was crazy awesome, and I hope for our sake that there are many more to come.
He looked *AWFUL* yesterday. 4 interceptions, sacks, and just a bunch of crap in a purple jersey. We actually had a chance on the last drive, but he decided to throw it deep instead of taking the 1:00 plus and marching down the field. We know that it can happen, so DO IT.
I dont know where the defense went. Granted, for some fucking stupid ass reason, Childress continued to give them a short field to start with during the first half because of the squib kicking, but that was no excuse. It was like they didnt think they had to play because the offense was scoring on every drive. The Marty Booker TD was so childish looking that I wanted to yell at Sharper, "MAYBE IT WAS GOOD WE DRAFTED A SAFETY, BECAUSE YOU SUCK TODAY!"
I guess he finally got the point that not catching balls will cost you your job. Considering this is a basic concept for every receiver, he should be subjected to water boarding.
Fire him now. You wont lose anything.
Overall, it was a fun game to watch, and we came close to winning. But considering that there is no way to make it anywhere when you throw it away, its time to replan the offense and shore up the holes in the defense. Special Teams needs to be hatcheted and started from scratch. Chris Walsh, WILL YOU PLEASE COME BACK???
