Good morning. First time caller thanks for having me on the show. This is for Bnag and Norton -

Coach Frazier has been outscored something like 110 to 30 in three games coming off the bye week. That seems to be bad. Do you think the Vikings should ask the league not to give them a bye? And, what tapes do you think our Coaches are watching when they repeatedly say they "need to see the tape" to determine what went wrong? I'm wondering if they're not having movie night in the coach's office instead of watching game film.

I'll hang up and listen.

From our coach's press conference ... said they'll just continue to work hard and battling. Here is some more stuff ...

"... points are a big deal ... points are critical to your success ...

... josh did a pretty good job ... xavier, he's improving, certainly some things he can do better ... he has the tools to be very very good corner in our league ...

... I thought we were fired up and ready to play at home ...

... (d-backs) they're going to get better, and our defense will get better ... have some confidence that they'll get better, and they'll win some games for us ...

... we gotta do some things a little bit better than what we're doing ...

... we had some tough moments in that ballgame yesterday ... nobody else is going to correct it but us, we have to work hard to get that corrected, and I know our team will ...

... as we improve as a team, our team will improve, we just gotta keep working ..."



This doesn't include six references to watching tape, and nine references to having to execute better. Thankfully, much of what we saw is correctable ... and we just need to watch the tape and know what to work harder at.

Some other good ones ...

"we have some work to do, and we have some time to get it corrected ... we have an extra day this week."

Referencing, of course, that they don't play until next Monday night. This is after they just had two weeks off to prepare for the Carolinas. Might've been 80-6 had we not had that extra week to prepare.

Did you review the "tape" in order to write down all those quotes?

I don't even care anymore. In fact, the give-a-crapometer is giving me a negative reading. Vikings, pedicures, and the struts on my car are amongsteth the things that I don't care about right now.

Go Lynx offseason!

They weren't prepared to even run out on the field during the starting lineups! Jeff and I witnessed it. They announced our defensive starters and the first name was Kevin Williams. Tick tock tick tock nobody ran out!! I guess a PR guy with a headset on was waving his arm profusely telling him to run out. Didn't happen. Next name was Robison and he came out. Hilarious. Can't make it up. Fire Childress.

Who's hosting for the big matchup next Monday night in NY? Should be a real barn burner.

This may be the first 0-6 team that will be favored.

Gotta look at the tape.

Things aren't as bad as they seem, a couple of plays here or there and things could be different. For example, 33 drops an interception at the beginning of the game and had he made that catch, well Carolina only scores 28 points and has one less 80 plus yard drive.

Big tilt Sunday and Freeman will start. How exciting is that? Yes, the 0 and 6 Giants are favored by 3 but heck, they have Manning at QB. Hopefully the Vikings don't blow it, because if they can manage a loss and tie the Giants' record at the end of the year with a 1 and 15 record - guess what? That's right, #1 pick is coming the Vikings way.

I can see Camel writing Freeman on athletic tape and covering Harvin with it on his jersey. I'll look for him at the Roadhaus. I hope he brings the tape, Skeddy may need to tape his wrists.

Well we know we can't lose on Sunday simply because we play Monday night. Who will be the first to show up with a brown paper bag on their head?

Giants' field general Eli Manning has been plagued all year with an absurd amount of interceptions. He's already racked up 15 so far in 6 games played.

Taking that into consideration, look for Elisha Nelson Manning (yes, that's his full name) to throw for a career high in completion percentage, TD's, and yards versus this sieve of a Viking pass D. Wait...calling them a sieve is an insult to sieves throughout the world, as a sieve at least stops something.

Vikings have historically been lousy in recent years on the road. Also on night games. And on prime time network TV. There's 3 strikes already.

Eli is probably already in his uniform, standing on the field and looking at his watch.

Giants 37
Vikings 13
