    My take..

    When the opposing quarterback has 138 yards rushing along with giving up 38 points, you are not gonna win a lot of games..

    Again strong finish by Ponder, some key mistakes on some bad throws but i don't feel i can put the loss on him.. The defense had a terrible game along with to many penalties from what we believed was a very disciplined team...

    Settling for FG's cost us. If we go up 17-0 the skins would've taken themselves out of the game and we coast to 5-1. Instead we settle for FG's and allow the skins to hang around. Really? A draw play with TG on 3 n 4 in the RZ? Good grief! I hate how this team doesn't use it's best weapons on the most important plays.

    And it's not a Viking game until they give you that hopes up moment so they can rip out your still beating heart. Now we have 3 embarrassing QB runs on the lifetime highlight reel, Young, Vick, and now RG3.

    Thank God we don't play another QB like that again. I don't see him having a long career but he got the best of us today.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    How will trading AD make us less one dimensional?
    So we can trade this guy for the entire kitchen sink and become a real threat.
    3 FGs in the first quarter? We start out AMAZING, can't rely on running the ball in the redzone to convert those to touchdowns. Did you see Peterson's pass protect on Ponder's fumble? Prime example of why we need to get rid of him at his peak. Or maybe if our coaching staff had any type of gall he would become an all-around back instead of this feast or famine guy. Don't let him get away with this piss poor play.

    Take the handcuffs off from Ponder. I love his drives at the end of games.
    Frustrated, but it is football.

    The most frustrating part is going to be all of the people online who are going to come in here with the sky is falling mentality.


    We are 4-2 people, not 2-4. Keep that in mind. Just saying. Let's take care of Atlanta at home.
    Didn't take long, did it Nodak?

    I don't know what your issue is.. But i think Adrian Peterson is a pretty good runningback and a good asset to our team and i don't think trading him would be a good decision to mostly because we won't get a big enough deal from any team and he also has a 100 million dollar contract along with a recent knee surgery..

    I know it was a tough loss for us and a gave we should and could have won.. But lets not melt-down completely.. We won 3 games last year and have won 4 this year.. Things are going forward..

    If you think we would get the kitchen sink for him, why do you think other GMs and coaches would be willing to trade said sink?

    Hoping for a Herschel Walker type deal that will let us dominate for half a decade or so.
