    Yeah! Why should we worry now. We should at least wait until week 2 of the regular season before trying to fix problems.

    Who wants our team to actually start firing on all cylinders and playing well together before the regular season anyways? It's only the Lions for cripes sake. We can start working on gelling as a team then.

    I posted that when all y'all (for the most part) were jumping off a cliff after 1 preseason game with two throws. I am skeptical about Ponder's ability to be a quality starter, something I thought he could actually be, but, I'm not jumping off a cliff yet. Too late to fix it now, as I've said, when he shits the bed in the regular season, Cassel will be put in...which, I'm not sure is much better.

    All these comments about "It's only 1 preseason game" are completely missing the point... isn't the season 2-3 weeks away? Isn't the the time we SHOULD BE PAYING ATTENTION TO PERSONNEL DECISIONS THE TEAM IS MAKING?

    I mean, what am I missing? We're just supposed to itch our butts and sit here? Sorry for paying attention and having an opinion on my favorite team. I suppose I should just sit here and let beer dribble down my chin like the rest of you?

    Now is the time to comment on personnel decisions. If you disagree, go back to watching Judge Joe Brown.

    I don't think "we" are going to fix any of the Vikings problems anyway.
    The coaching staff did a pretty good job of fixing our problems last year. Let's see how they do again this year.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    Shoot. I got dragged into it too. I was going to mention, I read through a couple of pages of this thread and did not see any mention of Patterson.

    I will just add that the, "Um, we did not know they would blitz from exotic packages in the preseason," attempt at an excuse is a faulty premise. Some teams use the preseason to actually practice plays and packages against NFL competition. The Vikings should have been using max protection, quick slants, and other plays designed to make the defense pay for such gameplanning. Not to do so was allowing the offense to play faulty football without learning all that much about how well our own gameplans work.

    I'm guessing they'll send AD & Walsh out there again. Same as last year.

    Of course they are going to have to somehow also account for Ponders decline in QBR from 86.6 to 28.3.

    Judge Joe Brown? WTF are you talking about? I'm gonna hunker down in my bunker so I don't get crushed by the sky falling.
