    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.
    Vikings had one timeout at that point; that timeout was huge for the Vikings in the final drive.

    I'm with you though, I was thinking "call timeout, call it!" --- which would have left the Vikings with a little over 50 seconds and no timeouts. Favre kind of lingered on the field like they might try something --- which possibly kept the Vikings from calling timeout.

    Huge play to me was when the Pack converted for the first down and the receiver ran out of bounds. The Pack could had run the clock down to 3 ticks before kicking :evil4: gack lol.

    What a wonderful drive with only 20 seconds!

    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.

    In the pic you can tell how frickin far away the goalposts are because it looks like they are below the defensive lineman's heads! Great photo!!

    You strike me as a "Glass is half empty kinda guy"

    Tell ya what, what if this effort is the one that sparks a big run of wins.
    Could happen.
    See now that is a "Glass is half full" kinda guy.

    Just a thought.

    Without that Time Out, I don't know if we win the game.....that time out is the lone reason why we got a chance at the field goal....without it, the clock runs down to less than 8 seconds and we have to throw up a hail mary instead of a field goal....

    Agreed.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    Re: I dont want to complain but...

    I think everyone is missing the point. If we would have used our last timeout before the packers' field goal, we would have had 1:04 left on the clock. Instead we let over 30 seconds run off down to :28 secs. Our last timeout was used after a 15 yard gain to Moore which stopped the clock with :08 (ball at 50).

    Think about it, if we would have called timeout with 1:04 left, we would have started our drive with about :56 secs left. If we complete that same 15 yd pass to Moore and spiked it, we would have had it at the 50 with about :40 secs, not :08. In the game with :08 we got to the 39 leaving :02 left on the clock. Had we used our timeout earlier we would have been at the 39 yd. line with :32.

    So would you rather be at the 39 yd line with :02, or :32 (give or take a few seconds). Either way we have no timeouts. With :32 secs we could have got at least a little closer, but no, letting nearly 40 secs off the clock was the right choice... our coaches are apes.


    Chuch.

    Dude, either way we won! Who cares, the call worked out and it provided a fitting ending to a game with Green Bay....get over it!
