    What's up with that?
    It was explained in the 'Tice sold his SB tickets to a voodoo witch in 'Nawlins' thread.

    What's up with that?
    Defensive field is compressed, players are tighter and our little dinky dunky passes, run left, run left then throw it in a crowd and pray plays lose their effectiveness.
    Seriously, we need a few new plays, at least in the red zone.
    Be interested for someone to look at all the Vikings red zone attempts this year, check out the play calling, and see how much it varies.

    It basically means that after the first series our opponents are adjusting to us while we are not adjusting to our opponents.

    I wanted to post I am not even furious about yesterdays game and I don't know why.
    I was levied as the game went on and our offense played like usual, and I ranted after we had a terrible penalty by T-Taylor that called back Chester's 65 yard TD reception (which 60 of it was running yards).

    But for some reason i woke up this morning and I don't care, what does that mean?
    It means you are a long time fan.

    Such things dont phase you anymore.

    NFL fans of all teams start to get that harder outer shell and that jaded look in their eye.

    Welcome to my world.

    I don't even care we lost to a crap team.
    I care we lost, but want to know more about what is being done to fix it than pretend I am a Madden Genius who has one word solutions.


    SKOL!
    That's me as well. I hate the loss, but it's just a game. I didn't lose any sleep over it, it didn't affect my appetite or my daily life & it doesn't change my love for the Vikings one iota. I'll be there next week sitting in the Metrodome once again, cheering my boys on.

    A loss like this happens. I remember losing to Tampa Bay when they first came into the league. They were the cellar dwellers for awhile & no matter how good our team was, they managed to beat us at least once.

    One year the Bucs won one game all year. Guess who they beat?

    We may have lost to a team that was 2-5 coming in here, but at least we are not that 2-5 team.
