    Re: Vikings-Chiefs Postgame Thread [R]

    I'll start off with the Vikes NEW weakest link, FB, Tahi is a piece of crap.
    He missed blocks, he didn't pick up guys in pass protection, he's useless at catching, running,
    REALLY WHAT CAN THIS GUY DO WELL?

    I like all the comments on Favre, good and bad.
    The only thing I can say is KC didn't want Favre's debut to be pretty.
    I would have loved him to audible a screen pass, with 9 men rushing.

    It's a toss up on JJ and Reynaud, JJ played against higher talent, but Reynaud excelled against the weaker.

    TJ threw some great balls, but it was combined with bonehead mistakes like running 5 yards beyond the LOS then pass.
    His improvisation is great!
    I just wish I had better angles to see if it was necessary, or he just didn't pull the trigger on time.
    The pass to Reynuad was poetry.

    Booty,
    I think he looked comfortable.
    As posted earlier his foot work was sloppy at times.
    But he was decisive and threw a pretty good ball.
    It showed he is really coming along.

    DL, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd stringers all did a good job putting pressure and stopping the run.
    Very very impressed.

    I've gotta go take my dogs to visit some diamondbacks!

    With Harvin, we're three deep at any returner position, and I seriously think all three guys could crush it as a slot receiver.
    This is the best depth we've had at wideout since the late 90s.

    Sully did just fine against a big jiggly butt nose tackle for a 3-4, and from what I noticed, the big 'ole tackles did just fine against the 3-4 ends as well.

    EJ is a monster, and I think Jasper is going to be made in his mold.
    Our LB depth is sick right now, as Erin and Jasper could be starting on other teams imo.

    Booty is make huge strides and I've got a lot more respect for his game now.
    He gets rid of the ball much more quickly than TJack, and actually looked off defenders, which is gigantic.
    For all the pooh he receives about his small hands, he seems to not turn the ball over all that much.

    TJack made outstanding plays, but seems to hold onto the ball way, way, way too long.
    It's mental indecisiveness that's killing him.
    Good summary.

    I agree Booty looks good. Much better in this system and he is the one that needs to be the 3rd QB on the team.

    TJ had better stats but his footwork and mechanics are a disaster. He doesn't step up to make throws but rather throws off his back foot or even by jumping backwards and throwing the ball while both feet are off the ground. It worked tonight but it won't work against the good defenses.

    Brett showed us why missing TC and the offseason was not a good decision. When he was in there it looked like the offense took 4 steps back. He and Childress better pray he can make up that ground very quickly or the season could get off to a bad start and the honeymoon could be short lived.
    Seeing BF work and seeing TJ work was a night and day difference.
    I had know idea how quick he made decisions and gets rid of the ball.
    It is a mental process and knowing where the plays are going to happen.
    Frerotte, TJ, and Sage all throw to open WRs once they see them open.
    BF throws where he knows the D won't be and the WR has to slide into that position and take what they are given.


    It is the WRs that have to get use to BF and not BF getting use to the WRs. Yes, time in camp would have been nice for BF and the WRs to get use to each other, but it is what it is.
    If it was a planned deal, BF was at home studying instead of being mauled by players and media wanting a piece of him.
    I think JA said it best, "I was in awe when I first saw him and didn't want to that guy that was doting all over him (I paraphrased a bit)."
    It looked like he was teaching on the sideline, even after he was done for the night.

    Re: Vikings-Chiefs Postgame Thread [R]

    Favre's play was better than what the stats show. I read the stats and summary of the performance and was rather dipressed. Then I actually watched the game (replay) and it was not nearly as bad as I thought. Like so many people have expressed already, it's just a matter of getting on the same page with the recievers.

    The Chiefs scored against our 2nd string D. Special Teams looked good again. Nice job Bryan Murphy. The goal line stand at the end was awesome. Was good to see TJ have a solid outing. He made a lot of plays but the best was the TD to Reynaud. He actually stepped IN to the pocket, made the right read and threw the perfect ball.

    My biggest worry is how we get Jaymar and Reynaud get on the 53 man roster. Neither of them will clear waivers to the practice squad.

    This team looks solid this year.
    Halo 4. Start another fight.

    Just like Favre's number seemed worse than they were, I though that TJ's seemed better than what actually happened.
    That throw to Shank was a floater for anyone in the area to catch.
    In Shank's first season, he probably would have dropped that one, lol.
    Shank is much improved since then.
    I am just not impressed by TJ.
    I know th eguys on NFLN said that we have a lot invested in the guy and we need to keep him.
    I am not sure on that one.

    Well, Favre and his receivers need to get on the same page, that's for sure.
    They were WAY off on the timing last night.

    Haven't watched the game on TV last night, but TJack gave us a good mix of good and bad.
    I might see more when I watch the game.

    Unfortunately there is a huge asshole sitting right behind me who had nothing but negative things to say - loudly - the whole game.
    Complained about the price of preseason tickets, complained about childress, complained about favre, complained about TJack.
    God I hope those aren't his season tickets, or this is going to be a LONG season.
    Everybody around him was getting annoyed.

    There was a kid in front of my who was wearing a Favre jersey when the game started.
    When TJack came in, he pulled it off and was wearing a TJack jersey underneath.
    Priceless!
    Was the guy wearing a white shirt & middle aged, 50ish or more? If it is, he could have easily been the same guy complaining outside for having to wait in line sol long because people were being searched by the security.

    If it was, you are in luck. He said that will be the last game he was going to.

    At this point, I think Johnson is still in the lead for the spot, and I highly doubt Reynaud makes the squad or sticks around on the practice squad for too long. It's a shame, but it is what it is. And I'm not too concerned about it. We have plenty of good wideouts, and I would much rather make space in areas where we don't have as much depth, like safety.

    One other thing I didn't mention: Holy BALLS Percy Harvin is fast. I remember watching him at Florida, but I don't remember that kind of speed. On the first kickoff return, I think he was past the 20 before a single defender appeared on my TV, and he caught the ball in the endzone. Wow.

    Interesting game. I just finished watching it on NLFN.

    A few things that stuck out to me:

    -Loved the goalline stand at the end. Nothing better than seeing the defense force Childress to make tough choices.
    -Overall, the 2nd/3rd stringers were pretty solid. There was some sloppiness, as you'd expect, and some painful yardage given up to the likes of Brody Croyle, but all in all I love our depth on defense (safeties depth aside).
    -Liked the look of Kenny Onatolu. He missed a few tackles, and the announcers were giving him flak about it, but I saw the guy be first to the ball on at least four occasions. Even if he missed a tackle, he was able to slow down the runner so that someone could quickly follow to make the finishing tackle. He just seems to have good instincts or understands the game well.
    -Tarvaris. Heh. Vintage Tarvaris Jackson: performing well when there's little pressure and nothing to lose. If he could just play like that on a semi-consistent basis we'd have never had to bring DouchePickle in to be the starter. Oh well.
    -DouchePickle. Meh. I don't know whether he put that pass to Jaymar Johnson where he intended it (like the announcers and Warren Sapp assumed) or if Johnson didn't finish the route. And frankly I don't care. But that pass could have gone for 50 yards, and probably would have if Johnson and Favre had previously worked together more than four days. Thanks again for skipping training camp and the first week of preseason, you twat.
    -JDB. Shaky, then calmed down and looked alright. Still no fumbles despite his ViennaSausageFingersâ„¢. It's always heartwarming to see people overcome their handicaps.
    -Jared Allen needs his own TV show. Now.
    -How many games has Ryan Cook played where he did NOT have a false start? Seriously. He might set an NFL record.
    -Great strip sack by Benny Sapp. Highlight of the game, and just might be the difference maker between him and McCauley (or whoever else is in the running) to make this team.
    -Fred Evans. When Big Pat retires, we are in good hands. Our defense will be stout for a long, long time. The commentators mentioned that our defense has only two players over the age of 30: Pat and Antoine. Wow.
    -Childress. My only complaint with Childress's coaching is that he only played Favre two series, but played AD for nearly the whole first half. That should have been reversed. Favre needs to build a rapport with his receivers. AD, I am not worried about. At all. We've all seen the super slow-mo commercial where you can see every muscle in AD's body pulsing like his skin can barely contain them. "Adrian Peterson is ready for the season." Is Favre?

    Wow! I didn't hear that. Our d should be stout for the next five years if we can keep em together and healthy.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Reynaud is doomed, how can anyone make this team that wears number 82.
    It is a tainted number now, damn you T-Will.

    Dallas did much better defensively vs KC than we did.
    I don't believe that we are the same team without Pat and JA in there.
    I think that we are decent but need improvement.
    When Winny is gone, that will leave a gap.
    You just don't replace him that easily.
