    Maybe you shouldn't judge a guy based on 2 or 3 games but perhaps a full season.
    To say Kluwe stinks after the year he had in '05 and all the factors working against him this year is stupid.
    Did you see the 50-yard-side-roll-out-inside-the-one punt he had against Detorit?
    The guy is awesome and everyone has a few down weeks so before you go off talking about how someone stinks maybe you make sure your rational for it doesn't stink.

    Vikeman, CC the best only comes on here to bad mouth the Vikes and I think he is a Packer fan that is pretending to be a Viking fan, you would be better off to ignore his posts because they aren't worth reading or responding too.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Kluwe is a good punter and an asset.
    If I picked out a bad day at work where you screwed up once, can I say you stink balls and fire you?

    Seriously, some people's logic astound me.
    "Oh, look at that one punt.
    He sucks!
    Yeeeeee!!!"

    Well, I would have to say that Kluwe has indeed looked horrible, and they should've kept Torp (which is what I was hoping for in the offseason, even though I knew it wouldn't happen).


    I'd agree with the D Line being an A.
    Almost an A+ if you factor in the fact that a starter went down and a rookie stepped up.


    LBs a B, I'd go with B+ probably.
    They're pretty good, and I just wish my boy Greenway was able to play.
    Next year hopefully.

    DBs a B, I don't think so.
    I'd rate Winfield lower than I would've last year, Smoot lower than last year too, with Sharper and Smith both lookin pretty good.
    B- for them, and that's being kind.


    Coaching, I'd have to go with a C+.
    I'd give the D coaches a B+, and the O coaches a D.

    ST would get an F from me, they're lucky not to get a ZERO.
    If not for Longwell kicking good, they would get a Big Fat ZERO!
    Punter looks like crap, KR and PR are both subpar as well.

    They haven't surpassed my expectations.
    The LBs are playing a bit better than expected (I expected Leber and Greenway to make them good, but figured MLB would be a weakness).
    DBs are playing much worse than I expected, cause I thought Winfield would do better, and Smoot would do much better this year....safeties are playing fine.
    DL isn't quite as dominating as I expected, but still very good.
    I was expecting a top 10 defense, hoping for top 5....so far they're doing it.
