    Re: Kluwe to emphasize hang time

    no kidding, as frustrating as it was to see yet another special teams breakdown against Joshua Cribbs in the Browns game, that ball only stayed in the air like 2 seconds... when will this Guitar Hero fool figure it out

    "To cut down on long punt returns surrendered, the Vikings are asking Chris Kluwe to emphasize hang time over distance."



    Nooo pooh sherlocks! has it taken you 1.5 years to figure that out?

    At the risk of getting flame sprayed again,
    You have to look at the situation.

    Minnesota Vikings at 2:23 MIN CLE
    1st and 10 at MIN 15 (2:23) B.Favre pass incomplete short right to P.Harvin.
    2nd and 10 at MIN 15 (2:19) B.Favre sacked at MIN 9 for -6 yards (B.Pool).
    Two-Minute Warning
    3rd and 16 at MIN 9 (2:00) (Shotgun) B.Favre pass short right to C.Taylor to MIN 19 for 10 yards (B.Pool) [K.Wimbley].
    Timeout #1 by CLV at 01:46.
    4th and 6 at MIN 19 (1:46) C.Kluwe punts 48 yards to CLV 33, Center-C.Loeffler. J.Cribbs for 67 yards, TOUCHDOWN. 10 3
    Any kicker will tell you he wants at least 15 yards between him and the opposition.
    My guess and my point when we discussed this in another thread, is that the coaching staff had him kick it for distance as quick as he could.....

    Re: Kluwe to emphasize hang time

    that maybe so, Marr, but the poor special teams play, particularly in the punt coverage units can be attributed to Kluwe 'outkicking' the gunners on a regular basis since the beginning of last season... here's to hoping no more cheap points surrendered on the all important 3rd unit of the team...

    I agree but that hasn't been the case this year.
    Trust me, I have been watching like a hawk so I can poke a few of my PPO friends.

    In almost every instance they guys are there before, or at the same time the ball gets there.
    Again, I attribute that to a change in the mindset of our new coaching staff.


    IMHO the best move by this staff this year was when they let the ST's Coord go be a LB coach.

    Ferraro should have been canned midseason last year....hopefully coinciding with his birthday.

    Re: Kluwe to emphasize hang time

    "You have to figure that every tenth of a second [in hang time] is probably another five yards or so that guys are getting down the field," Kluwe said.
    Hmmm...if Usain Bolt, the world's fastest human being can cover 100 meters in 9.58 sec, how far would he get in .1 sec?
    My math says it would be just over 1 m.

    Farwell is fast, but I don't think he's that fast.
    I'll give him 1 yard per .1 sec to make it easy on everyone.

    Better recalculate your required hangtime Chris.
