    Although he was not particularly bad at returns today, Wade should not be returning Punts. Memo has shown in the past he has deserves the job, or at least Allison

    I agree, but it comes down to when we can fit MEMO in the lineup.
    I haven't checked yet but was he dressed tonight?

    i got an AD home jersey, and put it on the first game of the streak, at the raiders game. my dad has a fran the man throw back that i got for him, he wore it for the first time that game too..

    i realized that my dad wasnt at the house, and the fran jersey wasnt out. so i got it out for the second half..

    lucky jerseys man!
    i m better than you, so just give up...

    Re: Can You Say UGLY first Half/Poor Play Calling!!

    Even though we won, we took a BIG step back tonight:

    - Tarvaris not being accurate with his throws
    - Receivers doing nothing
    - AP bottled up with no running lanes
    - Zone blocking schemes that allow Urlacher to blitz unblocked (hello !!!!)
    - Terrible play calling

    The defense won it tonight against a terrible Bears offense.

    We took a big step BACK tonight.

    Agreed. Offensive play calling has been terrible.
    Execution hasn't been good either.
    And it would appear that Tarvaris Jackson may finally lose a game for us.
    Let me ask this. The Bears are just stuffing everyone in close to defend the run; SO WHERE IS THE BOMB?
    Stretch the damn field, then run.
    And why is Wade back on punts?
    The Vikings may come back and win, but they don't look like a playoff caliber team tonight.

    Memo was deactivated before the game.

    Re: Can You Say UGLY first Half/Poor Play Calling!!

    Why is it when we have a bad game everyone blames it on poor play calling and totally ignores the lack of execution.

    Was it a poorly called play that made Fergy cough up the first INT?


    Was it a poorly called play that cause AD to cough up the ball?

    Was it a poorly called play that made TJ throw the ball to Shank late?

    Was it a poorly called play that allowed Urlacher to roam free to the QB as many times as he did?

    Comeon my friends.
    Sure they could have run instead of pass in situation X or they could have passed instead of run in situation Y but damn, the players need to execute.

    This team was not ready to play on this stage.
    As I said in my Observation.......

    The coaches need to make sure this team is ready (in thier head) to execute at this stage of the season especially when you look at the experience level we have as so many key positions and then the players need to execute the game plan across the board.

    Poor play calling indeed.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Probably for the same reasons that when we have a good game everyone gives Childress credit & ignores the fact we executed.

    You & I know my friend...........you & I know.
