    I dont want to complain but...

    On the final Packer's drive on 4th and 3 from the vikings 25 or so, why didnt the Vikings call time out immediately? It was highly unlikely that GB would have considered going for the first down while down 3 points. The vikes could have stopped the clock with 58 seconds left instead of letting the Packers wind the clock down to 28 seconds. This would have given the vikings offense more time to move down the field and perhaps get closer for a shorter field goal.

    Dont get me wrong, Im quite happy that the vikes won and that Edinger had a great kick at the end, but the poor clock managment by the coaches easily could have cost them the game.

    That being said.... go Vikes! whoo-hoo!

    no, they made the right choice. They let green bay use thier TO so they could have thier TO for thier drive which helped them win the game. Great move bye the coaching staff.

    Maybe the coaches were already making the plans for the OT stratagy.

    They did this because they only had 1 timeout....which they saved and used on the winning drive....without that timeout, that field goal doesn't happen and the Vikes go into OT with a 50/50 shot at getting the ball back....it was a great call....worked out perfectly.....

    GB used their TO with 1 second left on the play clock so their time out use was irrelevent. At that point in the game, didnt the vikings still have 2 time outs? (i might be wrong here) If so, dont see why you would need to have 2 timeouts for the final drive. Seems much better to have a full minute for the final drive instead of 30 seconds.

    You don't mean to complain ... but you did anyway!!
    No problem though, I think we have explained it here. They wanted the timeout for when they had the ball and with it we were able to go to the middle of the field and still have time to run another play after that. For once it was very solid clock management.
    Great new sig Audio!!!

    You made a post about it and I answered it.

    That was an option that carried over from the last site.

    Re: I dont want to complain but...

    The vikings had 1 TO left if I remeber correctly. So they let greenbay use thiers and they kept theres which helped lead to the 56 yarder.



    we're 2-4, but who gives a darn we just won a game lets have some fun, lord knows we deserve some fun in vikings land!
