Think they could start a Vikings Podcast at the Roadhaus.

Camel, we could call in!

I think they generally prefer a better looking caller on those shows. Sorry guys.

Question for Norton and BNag -

With the Bears facing a 1st and 20 on their final drive, they threw a pass to a wide open #83 (Bennett) in the left flat that resulted in a 23 yard gain and left 29 seconds on the clock. With 16 seconds left the Bears were in a similar formation, members of the Vikings defense were scratching their heads and wondering what was going on, and were clearly confused. This was confirmed by linebacker guy Henderson, and today by your head Coach during his most confusing press conference. Also, there is a piece in one of the Metro daily newspaper in which Bears quarterback Cutler recognized the Vikings defense on that play, and he could hardly keep from salvitating because he knew the Vikings were in deep doo doo.

Why wouldn't your team call a time out in that situation, considering you had your full assembly of time outs remaining, that being three? Considering the game was on the line, and there appeared to be a great deal of confusion, and you had just been burned for 23 yards just a couple plays earlier on FIRST AND TWENTY, should we have used one of our three time outs?

I'll hang up and listen.

"Not sure on that...gonna have to check the tape. Moving forward, that's something we might consider. But as of now, again, I'll have to see what happened on the game film. Moving forward."

Wow, what a great breaking down the coach's confusingly vague comments after a confusion induced game-costing breakdown resulting in future consideration when faced with the same game changing situation mind.

You forgot the two second pause after the word situation. Should've read, "...when faced with the same game changing situation......mind."

Things are looking up. True story, Ponder is 2nd in the NFL in completion % on passes over 20 yards. Plus we get the Browns this Sunday.

Future Viking QB hunt, watch San Jose St David Fales vs the Gophers this Saturday.

Very entertaining game last Sunday and one couldn't ask for more. Pounder is coming along and looks like he has some things working with Jennings and Simpson, minus the one play when Simpson gave up on the pick six Ponder threw. Simpson looked like the kickoff team on that play - no desire. Besides that throw, lots of nice passes by the Pounder, throwing it in there in some real tight spots. The Vikings win the game if Gary Wright makes the catch on the goal line. The next game will show if the Love Is Alive for that Dream Weaver, I'm not so sure.

Linebacker play was horrible - as referenced above by Camel on the 1st and 20 at game's end. Any team that does that deserves to lose. A little lesson in building a team here, start on the D line, then linebackers and finally the DB's. The Vikings would have been better off drafting the crazy Polynesian with the fake girlfriend than the DB they chose. It's time to play Bishop as he can't be any worse than what we have seen. Besides, anytime you can get Harrison Ford, a Bishop, and The Sheriff all working together you've got a blockbuster.

The offense looks very vanilla and I thought it funny Billick tried covering for the offensive coordinator Peter Musgraves, saying how good of a job he did. Pppfffffttttt. Every run goes up the middle, not one off tackle or one toss sweep. Colatteral Patterson certainly has some football skills as the opening kickoff return showed and how he isn't included in the game plan is very perplexing. Horrible offensive game planning.

Moving forward. The Browns come in fresh off a very weird week were they trade their starting RB who was their best offensive player. Their no. 1 QB is hurt and they announce they are going to start their no. 3 guy. What? This no. 3 guy isn't a pushover, probably a no. 2 on most teams so I look for him to throw for around 300 yards. The Browns do have a good rush defense which will create some interesting match-ups.

The Pick: Look for the Vikings offense to have a big game and expect some of the Browns to rollover since the trade of their RB, a locker room favorite. The Vikings will win big so take the money made from the last two picks here and bet it all on the Vikings, who are favored by 7.

Ah, yeah, first time caller, appreciate the program.

Is it pretty embarrassing for a "professional" football team to get burned by fake kicks not only twice in a season or twice in game, but twice in the same quarter? Didn't our team have some confusion at the end of the game against Chicago, too, when it might've considered a time out? Are we just being out-coached, or is our team really this bad?

I'll hang up and listen.
