    Don't suppose anybody is still wondering if losing the likes of Heath Farwell, Boulware, K.Allen, Gordon, and Mitchell hurt our STs...?

    No people just want to blame LONGwell. They can't see anything else.

    Re: Vikings' special teams sets NFL record

    "Special teams coordinator Paul Ferraro said the Vikings were misaligned at the line of scrimmage during a field goal attempt that the Cardinals blocked. “When you shorten the corner by alignment and then you don’t even touch him (rookie Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie), that’s an issue,” said Ferraro"
    LOL ejmat and Marrdro fought with me on this. I guess ole mars was right. The coaches are just as much to blame as Dugan is. They should have seen it and called a timeout.

    LOL Marstc.
    I still think Dugan did what he was supposed to do in this situation.
    He was lined up against 2 players and he took on the one that had a more direct route to the ball.
    Anyway, it really doesn't matter at this time.

    Regarding your post:

    I have never really blamed Longwell for anything personally.
    I have however blamed Klewe for his lack of hangtime and misdirected punts.
    Longwell wouldn't have anything to do with missing players like farwell, Bouolwarem etc...
    I think Longwell has done a pretty good job not only with FGs but with kickoffs too.
    I know he doesn't bang a lot in the endzone but he kicks it high enough to allow his team get down to cover.

    You need to go back and re-read my posts.
    I didn't blame Dugan.
    All I said was that they overloaded the side and Dugan had two to block.

    Hey, by the way, I been calling for the ST's job for quite some time now.

    Seems ole Marrs was right.... :P

    It happens.
    Sometimes when I miss a little time and have to catch up on your reading I tend to miss a post or two.
    But yeah, no excuses Marstc!
