    Good god man ... :roll: ... we all know our record and we all know it is not that good. If you can't get excited on a day like this, please find something better to do than come on here and try and bring everyone down.
    Agreed.
    Yeah, we all know we're 2-4...but we beat the freaking Packers! It wasn't luck or flukie stuff that happened either. We had a bonafide second half comeback where both sides of the ball looked very good. You have to get excited about that!

    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.
    It has already been explained, but here we go ... if we use that timeout, it SEVERELY limits anything we can do, as well as forces us to get spikes and forces us to make sure we can get our field goal team on the field in an awkward situation. It is almost always better to have the ball with a timeout than to have 30 more seconds and no timeouts ... I see where you are coming from, but I would bet 95 percent of the coaches in this league would have done the same. Using the timeout in this way helped most.

    we only had 1 TO thats why
    Technically it wasn't a TO, but the fumble on 4th and short, TO by downs.

    Those two things even out the 2 missed FGs by Longwell.

    But I understand what you are saying. It helps that we didn't give up the TOs in our own territory.

    Both did turn into points for GB, 10 points to be exact.

    Why isn't anyone complaining about Moore's Fumble like Bennett's Fumbles? Moore did a great job, I am happy with him as the starter. Bennett is still someone that can contribute and has a place on this team.

    I still think it was an accident. Tice must have thought that he didn't have any timeouts or ne probably would have mad ethe mistake of taking it before GB took theirs. LOL HA HA HA HA

    Re: I dont want to complain but...

    Tice uses his final timeout the right way, and some of us are still complaining!! We Vikes fans are never satisfied :grin:

    That type of clock/time out mis-management is what has cost us 2-3 games each season he has been coach. It's nice when he gets it right.
