    What part are you most proud of? The play calling? The dropped passes? The fumble? The OLine sucking their normal a$$? The fact Smoot couldnt cover my 70 year old aunt?

    The Vikings win and you disappear, now you come in with your tirades.
    It is nauseating.
    Bring something to the table other than resurfacing with your spineless whining.


    Grossman threw just as many TD passes to the Vikings as he did to the bears.
    The D pulled off a few INTS against the vastly overrated Bears O and the cards ended up going in their direction.

    I was proud of the defensive effort and am concerned about the O.
    This team is a newborn team considering all the changes this year and the Bears are playing with many of the same players.
    They did a gol 'darnit good job in this game and should have won, but they didn't.
    If you think the sky is falling after week three with a 2-1 record you need to begin to think a little more.
    If the Vikings were 0-3, considering their recent changes, I wouldn't be too uptight.
    Learn from their mistakes, celebrate their improvements, and move on to the next game.

    They have had massive changes since last year in all aspects of teh game.

    Re: I'm rather pleased with our vikings today

    I love the Vikes as much as the next guy. But when the only thing to really be proud of is the deffense, its kinda hard. Our special teams makes baby jesus cry.

    Come on, for a bunch of years the O is the only thing Vikings fans had.
    Every time the D hit the field the other team scored at least three.
    Today they held them in the red zone many times.
    I would rather have it flipped around where the O needs to step it up any day.
    It is week 3 in a new scheme all the way around.
    I'm actually pleasantly surprised that the D is doing this well and have confidence that the O will come around, barring injury to BJ.

    The special teams look an order of magnitude better than they did in the preseason.
    Troy Williamson should have had a TD if he would have read the blocking on that one return.
    The special teams won the game in Carolina (partially Carolina's special teams and ours
    8).

    The team is looking better than I expected them to this early in the season.
    I have confidence in the coaching staff and the team to improve as they progress this season.
    They will be fine.
    An reasonable person would give a new coaching staff a minimum of three years to get things going and you're crying foul after three weeks and a 2-1 record against good teams?

    That makes no sense.

    I know it does little to wish but I would have loved to seen this defense at full strength.
    Chad, Tank, Edwards, Eramus would all been logging major minutes.
    Just imagine the depth we would have had.

    On the one hand, Brad Johnson is 9-3 as a starter.
    That's good and shouldn't be overlooked.

    On the other hand, this offense has scored exactly zero TDs in two home games this season.
    We've been in the red zone 6 or so times and couldn't punch it in.

    Defense looks solid, but not overwhelming.

    We're a 10-6 team that will be competing for a wildcard.

    a 10-6 team with 22 new coaches, new defensive and offensive schemes, and a team that got many new starters on both sides of the ball. a team that lost their #1 draft pick, backup FB, starting SS, and starting DE all by the 2nd week.

    thats pretty damn good, look at the other 9? teams that got new headcoaches



    and CC, the bears had nothign to cheer about last year but their defense and won the NFC north title, why isnt that good enough? ecspecially since we have a much better starting line up in brad, chester, troy, etc, on offense

    You knoww CCthebest is just a Troll, came in here to argue and to get people riled up.
    I don't trust his allegiance to the vikings any farther then I can throw him.

    My thoughts on the team, we had them beat.
    Good teams rise to the occasion and the bears did that, it proves they are a hell of a team, but it also proves we got something to be proud of here in the Twin cities.
    The vikes played that team punch for punch and had them beat, until halfway through the fouurth quarter.

    The offense will come around and I expect they will rise to the occasion, but its early, and we knew it could be a rough year for our offense.
