OFFICIAL COLTS vs VIKINGS POSTGAME DISCUSSION
With no decent MLB or secondary play the defense is easy to exploit and will fail all year.

The problem is your looking at things in the wrong light. Very few of our starters or backups for that matter should me measured against starting caliber players. That's because they aren't to that level yet.
Look at the kid along with the rest in the light that they have played at the next level, showed promise and have the talent and upside to get to the level we want them to in a year or two.
Until you start looking at things that way, your just going to be disappointed all the time.

The fact that we were in the game is unbelievable. Ponder is playing better i'll give him that, but nobody is afraid of him. Anyone notice how awful his play action fakes are? Anyone realize his longest completion is 29 yards....29 freakin yards. Qbs do that with their eyes closed. Good thing we drafted brad johnson 2.0 w the 12th overall pick.
The defensive numbers are so deceptive. The only time we slowed down their o (w a freakin makeshift line mind you) was when they went into prevent offense mode to burn clock.
You can count on us being 1-3 in a couple weeks and drafting early in the first round.
I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

Secondly interest in the game and wanting to get on with it. It was especially noticeable in the 4th quarter when, not only were we trailing the score, we didn't seem to hustle up to the line to run the next play. Hello?? I thought you're there to play football and not out for a gentle afternoon stroll - hell my wife walked quicker than that over the weekend when we were away and she's not in good health !
The offense was that slow that even the FOX muppets calling the game noticed it so you know it was really slow.
Much as I like Frazier this team is starting to take on his personality, which at present is somewhere between a zombie and 'body on morgue table' in CSI. At present he and the entire coaching staff are coaching themselves out of a job come December.Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

We are tied for first in the NFCN!
When you are a Vikings fan of late you need to savor the little things in life.

It was just week 2 where teams are all trying to get their act together. I expected a close game and saw one. Penalties were the real issue with this game, we are not good enough to overcome all the miscues. Luck reminded me a lot of Aaron Rodgers yesterday, even when we got pressure on him, he was fast enough to avoid the sack and make plays. Of course, every QB reminds me of Aaron Rodgers when they play the Vikings....hmmm.
Other than seeing Ponder improve on the CMacD QB Rating chart, things don't look much different than last year at this point. It is still early though, and I will sit back and see what unfolds over the next several games. If nothing changes, the coaching staff should be where all eyes are focused.
I'm actually pretty interested in next week's game against San Fran at home. Although, most likely another conservative game plan coming from Frazier and Musgrave. Should be a much better measuring stick to see where we are at and whether full on depression is in order.

1. We need a warpig-Our D-line has gone down hill since when, what happened that you can actually markedly see, Fhat Pat's departure. Since that has happened our D whether it be run D or pass D has gone down hill.
2. We need a Mike linebacker in the worst way. I take that back we one in the worst way.
3. We need some ball hawing safeties!!
If you want the T2 to work you have to be stong up the middle on D IMO! That pretty much goes for any sport.
There s only two things stopping you - fear and common sense!! The Truth you CAN"T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!

Before the season started, I thought we would probably go 6-10. And I still think so. We are going to lose a couple we should have won, like yesterday. But we will also win a couple we should probably lose. So it will even out.
Bottom line - we are playing like the 6-10 team I expected us to be. I have my reservations as to whether or not Frazier can get us past that, but I am going to do my best to give him more of the season...Zeus wrote:

Bad front office, bad coaching, bad players equals a bad record. I'm hunkering down, again, for another woeful campaign. This team isn't even fun to watch. The defense can't play and the offense is just plain Jane boring and unimaginative. Look at the teams that have recently succeed- NYG, SF, GB, NE, and NO. Guess what? They have excellent coaches. We do not. I'm officially off the Leslie bandwagon. I've seen nothing exceptional so far. I hope I'm wrong. BTW, you can see what the loss of Sean Peyton has done to NO. Even Brees can't carry them.
