    Interesting Stats - Draw Your Own Conclusions

    On paper we're not that far from winning more games. Eliminate the turnovers and a couple ST mistakes and it can be a very different story.

    Vikings























































    Opponents
    TOTAL FIRST DOWNS 134









































    107
    FIRST DOWNS (Rushing-passing-by penalty) 43 - 78 - 13



















    28 - 73 - 6
    THIRD DOWN CONVERSIONS 32/98


































    30/90
    FOURTH DOWN CONVERSIONS 5/7



































    2/3
    TOTAL OFFENSIVE YARDS 2393






































    2031
    OFFENSE (Plays-Average Yards) 469 - 5.1






























    411 - 4.9
    TOTAL RUSHING YARDS 899








































    495
    RUSHING (Plays-Average Yards) 210 - 4.3






























    168 - 2.9
    TOTAL PASSING YARDS 1494







































    1536
    PASSING (Comp-Att-Int-Avg) 135 - 241 - 8 - 6.7

























    138 - 227 - 4 - 7.2

    Football is played on the field, not the box score.

    Dumb plays, penalties, mistakes and lack of heart equate to our piss poor play.

    I agree with the dumb plays and penalties but I'm not convinced of the lack of heart. I've watched every game and we've been in all of them and haven't quit.

    I would say all of that comes back to the coach and how he motivates/gets the team ready for games doesn't it?

    Lack of hear, yes and no.

    Lack of hear?
    Hear?
    Does Chiller whisper in the locker room?
    Is he whispering the plays in to the QB?
    What aren't they hearing?












    In all seriousness, those stats are misleading.
    We've "been in" games we should have been blowing teams out in.
    There's no excuse for having lost any of the games we've dropped, and no excuse for the games we have won being so close.
    We're far too talented on BOTH sides of the ball.

    It comes back to Chiller.
    He can take a great team and turn it to crapolla.
    He the NFC version of Norv Turner.

    Excellent post thorshammer, keep em coming.
    There is no getting around the fact the team has played piss poor, but there are reasons to believe they can do better.
    They are currently 12th in offense and 8th in defense(yards per game), what is killing them is the turnovers, they are 25th with a -4(gave it away 4 more times than they took it away). If they can get that number number above zero before the end of the season I predict we win the nfc north.

    Those stats prove they are consistent at being inconsistent as a result of bone head plays/penalties/decisions at the most inopportune of times during the game.

    Additionally, they do them at a higher rate than their opponent.

    That my friend brings us back to the core group who is responsible for ensuring those bonehead plays are limited in nature......The Coaches.

    As to heart.
    I gotta agree, to date I haven't seen this team quit yet and they are still playing hard for the Chiller.
    That, along with the Owners obvious relationship with the Chiller might equate to a few more years of
    inconsistency.

    If he looses this team, then we will be talking about our new head coach my friends.
    Until then, more tears I fears......... :'( :'( :'(
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    that is so true but look what they are doing for all the kids....(ha-ha) STOP doing commercials, building play grounds, being a big brother. start watching film, study the opponent, and do your job.
