    But the point is, Tom Landry lived in a different era. They (the owners) let you lose for a couple years and build up a team. That era is long gone. Today, you either win or you are out.

    That is why there is this chaos at the QB position around the NFL. You lose two games in a row and the QB who lost them now gets yanked. I am exagerrating a bit, but that is how it is. I don't think that there is a single QB in the NFL now who can't be pulled if he stinks.

    The thing I never got on this Vikings team is the idea that Childress could have loads of time to "build", and also the idea that he "has" to go with Tarvaris, because he originally committed to him. Makes zero sense to me. You go with what works, and if you can't win, the team owner will find a coach who can.
    Welcome to the microwave generation.
    100 years ago people would wait a week for a stagecoach to take them where they wanted to go, today we get all pissed off if our hot dog isn't ready in 30 seconds.

    This was a big win for us. 5 sacks, Frerotte stepping up on that drive. Really good stuff. Frerotte and Allen looked great today, as did most of the team. The defense was amazing.

    Don't get me wrong, this was big, and I like it a lot.

    The only thing is, I have two minor issues:

    - We took a knee at the end of the game, but then left enough time on the clock for the Panthers to start a drive. I almost could not believe my eyes. I think I have never seen that ever in the NFL. Who does that ? Who leaves 32 seconds on the clock after taking a knee ??? Is this not a major indicator that there is something wrong with our coaching staff ??

    - Childress: he had on this black and white jumpsuit. I strained my eyes to find anything purple or Viking on it. Again, I have never seen this: a head coach on Sunday not in "uniform", i.e. wearing clothing with ZERO reference to the team that writes his checks every week. What the hell is going on here ?
    As said already, it was a safe bet to sit on the ball, the game was ours aslong as we don't give them a freebie.

    I don't care what he is wearing, I do however, care about the ugly c**I love the word I used**k brush he wears.
    SHAVE IT ALREADY!!

    No need to risk a fumble at that stage in the game.
    They did the right thing by kneeling.
    36 seconds is not enough time to drive 80 yards kick an on-side kick, get the ball back with no time outs.
    Not even against the Vikings.
    That is the time to be conservative.

    Who cares what Brad Childress wears?
    Correct me if I am wrong but doesn't Mike Nolan wear a suit and I don't think he always has his teams colors on it most of the time.
    I could be wrong but still who gives a shit?
    Let Wilf deal with Childress on his dress code if he chooses to do so.
    If it is not enough time, then there is really no risk in fumbling the ball or tacking on 3 points, is there?
    I disagree.
    You saw how quickly the Vikings scored 10 points in the 1st half.
    A TD was a result of a fumble.
    Then you have 30 seconds to kick an on-side kick and move the ball 20 yards for a FG attempt.
    This way if they don't fumble it makes it more difficult to move it quickly.
    Sorry but I don't agree with your thought on this one my good friend.
    No you don't. There were 32 seconds left on the clock when we took the knee. If we run a play there & fumble, who on the Panthers squad is fast enough to run that distance to score a TD in less than 2 seconds?
    I think you are being a bit nit picky.
    Whether it's 30 seconds or 20 seconds there is a better chance they are able to do it than there is to make them go 90 yards in 30 or 36 seconds, then kick an on-sides kick and score again.
    Either way, risking a blocked kick or fumble recovery is not the better choice in this situation than just taking a knee and letting the defense (that had done well all game) stop them from going that distance.

    If you can prove to me it is quicker to drive 90 yards down the field and score starting from scratch than it is to score on a fumble, INT, blocked kick than there is a debate.
    If not than taking the knee was the correct decision.
    I'm not stating that it was the wrong decision, just merely stating the fact that it would be damn difficult to score twice with no time outs & 32 seconds on the clock.

    How much time do you think it would take from the time of a snap for a defender to block a FG, pick up the ball & run 90 yards? Then how much time would be eaten up on an onside kick play?

    Less time than what it would take to start from scratch from the 10 yard line.

    I thought that dumb threads got just deleted, rather than viewed by like 1540 people... :

    BTW, why is it "negative" if I just point things out that I have seen ? I don't think that the original post was negative, it was more of an observation.

    I guess I need to line up at that Kool-Aide line and start drinking, so that I can "remain positive" all the time.

    It's ok to be negative some of the time, but one has to be positive as well some of the time as well.

    Ok, how about this: with Frerotte "driving the bus", we can make it all the way to the Show.

    Is that positive enough ?
    ;D ;D

    A friend of mine (a non-Vikings fan) said that to me tonight, and I really agree with it.

    I have to admit that is pretty positive.
    Realistic?
    Maybe.
    I guess we'll see.
