    Re: Kluwe Speaks today

    OKAYYYYYY

    Kluwe was told to kick it out of bounds not once but twice

    He didn't.. All Chilldress did was say if he can't do that then we will find someone who can

    He didn't call him out all that much

    He also said he was disapointed with the coverage in his interview so he did call them out as well

    This should be put to rest

    Amen V4L.
    Doesn't it always seem like it is one sided when it comes to decisions made by Childress?
    With this fan base he is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.

    YUP!!

    And as fans here all I see is pointing blame at 1 or 2 people

    It's either T-jack or Chilldress

    Or Kluwe or the coverage

    The whole team almost blew the game for us

    Keep in mind that he cannot talk to any of the staff of any other teams, and most college coaches have monetary penalties for early withdrawal of contract.

    I want Childress gone at the end of the year too.
    I also want out ST to learn how to adjust, stay in their lanes, and freaking tackle.
    AND I want a punter who can aim.

    I don't like the way Childress criticized him publicly.
    I think Kluwe handled the situation with more class.
    But that doesn't take away from the fact that Kluwe is a major part of our ST, and he is struggling to get the job done as asked.
    So why is everybody up in arms about them bringing in 4 punters who likely don't stand a chance of replacing Kluwe anyway?


    People ask why they don't bring in TEs or LBs when they under perform.
    THEY DO!
    But we already have a pool of players at those position - its called the practice squad.
    They don't need to bring in additional ones when they want to explore options.

    ;D

    Ever since there have been punters on the field, there have been directional punts. We've all heard of "coffin corner" punts. It's a copout for Kluwe to say it's not that easy. Instead of punting it 55 yards and having it land just off the sidelines is not needed. You make sure it's out of bounds...miss one, OK, but two...not good at all.

    I agree the criticism should have been kept inside. But I don't think anyone threw him under a bus...he screwed up twice and almost cost us the game.

    Maybe it's convenient that Chilly has a "whipping boy" in Kluwe. Some coaches need one in order to motivate other players. Who knows?
    yah mike but all facets of our game stunk at one time or another during the game, and i seriously doubt that any other player is going to be motivated by the fact childress replaced the punter.
    it just seems cheesy.
    i mean i heard him make excuses for his offense for 2 years and not single anyone out really, but now all of a sudden you're going to do it to a "punter".
    we really shouldnt care this much, but i think the frustration of fans of how bad the game was played throughout made us a little bit more defensive of a player we shouldn't care that much about.

    ragz, I also don't like that the fact he has only called out the punter (and I heard he got in Longwell's face earlier in the year). Clearly he's frustrated, but to only get on the kickers is not very productive. If he keeps up with this tough guy approach, I'd like to see him go after some of the regulars when they screw up.

    I have seen him go after some of the regulars.
    I've seen him go off on TJack in a game.
    I've seen him go off on Peterson in a game (and I hope he did yesterday).

    Now let's talk about the Sts yesterday.
    Klewe, for the most part (except for 1 kick I believe that he punted in the endzone) did pretty well.
    He had hang time.
    He booted the ball well.
    Now, STs also had a pretty good game IMO other than the blocked FG.
    That is where I say it all starts with the punter.
    If the punter does his job it is a lot easier for the other 10 to do theirs.
    I am not saying the other 10 should be let off the hook however it all begins with the punter.

    One thing I want to add:
    Is it just me or does it seem like Maurice Hicks always goes straight to where the bulk of the players are for KRs?
    He tries to run everyone over and he is not that big to begin with.
    What's up with that?
    Gordon, I thought had a respectable game.

    When Klewe punted it in the endzone Childress looked for him and then said what I took to be something pretty sharp to him. Several players came over to try and lift his spirit.

    The biggest a$$ chewing I saw was Frazier chewing on Edwards...

    The field commentator did say there were a lot of talking and arguing between the players with the exception of Ray Edwards.

    Re: Kluwe Speaks today

    I'm sure Childress told AD to hang on to the ball after the first fumble, but he didn't why didn't Childress call AD out and say "If he can't hold on to the ball, I'll find someone who can"

    I doubt Kluwe said "screw Childress, I'll do what I want".

    Just like I'm sure AD didn't say "screw Childress I'll fumble if I want to".

    Kluwe is a good punter, he can make mistakes too.
    Lots of players on the Vikes are making mistakes.
    Childress should just go down the roster and point out every players mistakes if he's going to do it for one.

    However he did bench Peterson for a couple of posessions.
    Klewe didn't get benched.
    We can play tit for tat games all day long here.
    I think a comparison of an average punter versus the Rookie of the Year/ProBowl MVP running back is not a very good comparison at all.
    Like I stated it's a lot easier to forgive Peterson because of what he brings to the team.
    Mistakes on punting are excusable once in a while not often since that is the only thing you need to do.
    Running backs have much more diverse roles than do a punter.
    A punter is easier to replace than Adrian Peterson.
