    Vikes Special Teams Question

    Whack was talking about Elling, and it made me think of how bad the Special Teams has performed. Anderson is solid right now..but Kickoffs are bad. And the return team hasn't done anything in a while. Cambell's return was nice, but nullified.

    Can anyone ops: remember when the last time there was a kick return for a Touchdown by us? I remember seeing Moss return a Punt against the Chiefs back in 99, but I can't recall the last time there was a kick return for a TD. I would have to guess Palmer in 98, perhaps? My memory seems scarred from from that Giants, NFC championship game, and the likes of Troy Walters.

    Vikes Special Teams Question

    Campbell last week but it was nullified, now that is an opps.

    I can't remember, it seems like a long long time ago.

    Vikes Special Teams Question

    wasnt there a game a few years ago, where a vike ran a kickoff back for a TD, and then on the very next kickoff a lion ran one back on us? for some reason that sticks in my mind.

    I believe that was the 98 game against the ravens in which we ran one back and then on the ensuing kickoff someone from the ravens took it back. Crazy plays on special teams but as you know we won that game.

    Hey Hovan... I hate to say this man, and it's not a big deal, but your smilies don't work. I think you need to get your smiley button fixed.

    Vikes Special Teams Question

    I don't really worry about our returns, I worry about the field position that opposing teams seem to be getting. I amy be way off here guys, but it seems like opponents are starting past the 40??? We need to put it deep, and have our gunners kill these guys!

    I agree with that. I wish we had someone who could put the ball into the end zone on the kickoff. At least make them start from the 20.

    Vikes Special Teams Question

    True that in a big way, we have yet to let a team score when they start inside their own 20 yard line. That means not many team have drove the whole 80 yards on us. Then again how many time have teams started in there own 20. We have got to stop letting teams get great field position, thats hard on our defense.
