    I am happy that these games are close. That is a positive. It just seems like we never seem to win the close ones. I still think we can turn this around but adjustments need to be made and I fear we are bad at doing this.
    There close because our defense is keeping us in the game.

    There isn't a whole lot that can be done about our O-Line because there is no personal depth or very little at most positions. I still think the blocking scheme is still to complicated. People have stated it works great when executed & working properly, but the bottom line is, it isn't working.

    Something needs to change on the OL, but what will it take to get them on track? Firing Childress like many have wished, won't change the OL play. Is it the OL coordinators fault? The scheme like I believe or is it personnel? Your guess is as good as mine.

    I have a hard time believing that Hutchinson who dominated the line in Seattle & Birk who's been solid for so many years here, just turned into lesser playmakers from one year to the next. That's why I'm leaning to the side that the offensive blocking scheme is just to complicated & takes too long to master.

    If a simpler, more effective scheme than what we have now can be implimented, I say go for it. Go for what works best around the personnel you have. Fit the scheme around the players you have were they can excel instead of forcing them to change from something that worked well for them.
    Heresy!!!
    Heresy?

    Do you like the way the OL is playing right now? They've been playing & practicing together through 20 regular season games, 8 preseason games, 2 training camps & a lot of mini camps & OTA's & while there has been some progress, it seems like very little compared to the time they've invested into it.
    Relax there buddy, I agree with you 100% and have been on that bandwagon since about game 2 or 3 last year. I was just being a bit sarcastic.

    I am starting to realize the Vikings just stink.


    Childress can sing his songs and have a campfire because god knows, he isn't thinking about football.

    I used to find Childress amusing. Now I just think he's a pompous ass.

    “We were thinking about having a campfire and all singing Kumbaya here this afternoon a little bit just so we could get our spirits up,” Childress said.“.........
    May be instead of scratch our collective heads and wondering where Chili pulled this tidbit of delight we can all offer our requests to Brad's campfire sing along

    Gordon Lightfoot's - The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald

    ACDC's - Highway to Hell

    Bruce Springsteen's - Glory Days

    Tom Cochrane's - Big League

    Pink Floyd's -Comfortably Numb

    The Door's - The End

    I am still trying to figure out how he convinced the Viking Nation that we are in the rebuilding mode.


    That isn't what he said when he took over.


    He is just making excuses.

    That's because we weren't when he took over.
    He proceeded to take the wrecking ball to the team to the point that we were rebuilding.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Are you talking about the part where he said it was a "Plum job" where he could come in and win right away? ;D
    I remember those things too.

    After all he took this one and didn't go to Green Bay because they needed to rebuild to get better and all the Vikings needed was some discipline and direction. He sure called that one right.

    I agree, he just destroyed this team.
    He messed them up big time.
