    NASHVILLE — Vikings quarterback Gus Frerotte needed two stitches in his left hand and took several big shots in a 30-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday at LP Field. But one hit in particular made Frerotte's blood boil.

    NASHVILLE — Vikings coach Brad Childress likely will be talking today to Mike Pereira, the NFL vice president of officiating. Odds are it won't be a pleasant exchange.

    Penalties, turnovers and numerous mental mistakes made for a long afternoon in Nashville and another frustrating defeat.

    NASHVILLE — Vikings coach Brad Childress called it "disturbing." More than one player used the word "frustrating."

    Think Childress will get fined for this one?

    "Damn disappointing is the only way I can say it," Childress said of the decision by Morelli. "You can't fumble the ball on fourth down was one of my contentions, and have someone else recover it.

    "[The official] ruled [forward] progress. His progress was stopped. From what I was seeing, the progress didn't make the line. I got something about 'We don't have that many cameras at the game.' Clearly that wasn't a first down, and you are not going to convince me that was a first down."

    [size=14pt]Titans bully sloppy Vikings to remain unbeaten[/size]

    The Vikings for most of the game looked like a team that practiced last week by running a few plays here and there and then showed up and tried to call a few of them. There was little cohesion in their effort.

    Of course, four fumbles -- three of them lost -- and an interception served by the offense will make a team look unglued.

    Toss in seven penalties, costly ones that kept drives going for Tennessee or forced Minnesota's offense too frequently off the field, and it was easy to see that though the Vikings won in many of the overall numbers, that they were, in essence, an absolute jumble.

    "It's disturbing," said Vikings coach Brad Childress, who must know that for Vikings brass it is much more than that. If Childress eventually does not last in Minnesota, we can all point to this game as one checkpoint on his list why.

    Big game, big moment on the road against an undefeated team and the Vikings looked, well, poorly coached. They looked ridiculously sloppy.
