    Bemidji, MN, ole stompin grounds there....... ;D

    Anyway, a little nugget..

    Although it's the only loss for the Vikings this year, it highlights a major problem with the team. The inability to execute one of the most basic of coaching mantras, [size=10pt]play four quarters of football [/size] and close out the win. Of course it's easier said than done, but if you're to be a Super Bowl caliber football team you have to be more consistent.
    Kindof been my main knock on this staff.
    Seem to fail to get the team ready/prepared.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Just once in a while could we do that?

    Yes.

    I found this game to be less of a let down than the others.
    It all started by the Robison fumble, and he should know better than to try and run with the ball.
    Just go down and the whole thing probably wouldn't have happened.
    I agree, it wasn't totally a defensive issue like the other games.
    It did start by the Robison fumble. We could have got the ball, got a couple first downs and get a FG, TD or punt for field position.
    We have to give our offense the chance to keep the heat on the other team.
    I guess a bit of that happened in Pitt also with the turnovers that thwarted two scoring opps.
    Baltimore was defense!
