    Our O would've played a lot better today if we...

    if we gave Linehan a raise during the offseason so he would stay put instead of going to miami... hell, coaches salaries don't even count towards the cap.

    Now that he's in Miami, they scored 34 points against a top 10 D of the broncos...

    I dont think Linehan has anything to do with it. I think it was mainly our o-line and not establishing our running game.

    Well Looney is both the o-coordinator and the o-line coach, don't you think he would've done a better job if he only needed to focus on the o-line instead of the whole offense?

    Linham sucked when he was here. I am glad that he is gone. I really dont care if the Fins win all of their games, it wont be because of his playcalling.

    This goes back to an article I remember from last year about the cheap ass RED and how the coaches had too many responsibilities. We need to split up the duties with competent staff.

    I am outta here, want to go scout the Lions and the Pack.

    Later Ya'll

    I think today was the first full game in a new offense. We just didn't have enough time to recover from the mishaps.

    Poor Daunte. Bad protection, Burleson making two mistakes that caused turn-overs. We blocked SIMEON RICE with JERMAIN WIGGINS (WTF!!!!). Moe has a good pass go off his hands and INTed.

    It was just shaking off rust and getting used to a new system. We miss Moss, yeah, anyone who tought we wouldn't for at least first game of the season or two is an idiot. Our defense plkayed excellently. Sharper was spectacular, Chavous did a good job. We needed Smoot in there for the entire game tho.

    Also, we lost by 3 points. that stupid offensive PI call on Wiggins's first TD was total BS and just horrible job of officiating. Both teams committed penalties and mistakes, ours just came at worse times.

    Bad coaching job by both Tice and Loney. You have to make sure Simeon Rice blocked by someone other than a Receoving TE. With 5 minutes left and at the 4 yard line Tice needed to go for the Tie not the meaningless FG. Even if we didn't make it then the bucs have the ball on the 4. With our defense playing so well, you had to trust them in case a team with Daunte Culpepper, Moe Williams, Wiggins, Kleiny, Marcus Robinson among other goal line threats doesn't get in from 4 yards. When we kicked the FG I turned to my friend and said "Thats it, we lost". With our offense making as many mistakes as they were we couldn't give up an oppertunity on the 4-yard line.


    We need to get back to the running game. Tampa has a tough run defense, but you have to run the ball on first down more often. You just have too. Also, screen passes. by my count we did 3 and picked up 25 yards. Not just RB screens but screens to Kleinsauser, and WR screens. The WR screen is something M-Rob can do well and Williamson did well in College.

    Lots of kinks, hey, we went 1-0 each of the last two season and it got it reccords of 8-8 and 9-7 and only 1 playoff birth. I'm still just as excited about this season for us.

    ON a bad note, I started Daute Culpepper and Joe Horn over Byron Leftwhich and Jimmy Smith (6pts, vs 47pts)
    When it s all said and done, you ll have to admit we re number 1!

    i just think daunte was gettin rushed too much, i hope when koren comes it will help daunte. that last second pick that bounced off moe williams was a crusher, daunte would have had at least one TD and they called back a perfectly legal TD damnit.

    Daunte's real stats should have been something like 2 TD's and 1 INT. The two others came at the garbage time at the end of the game.
