    You can say whatever you want to make yourself feel better, but I'm right. We're not good.

    ... and Jennings was awful today. Just awful.
    No, he wasn't. The poorly thrown balls, and the idiotic, retarded, windowlicking play calls were the issue. Musgrave is a complete dick. Ponder is a clown, and that LAWN GNOME, Frasier, has no business coaching a pro team. I miss meathead and culpepper. How sad is that? I p

    And not to keep piling on Ponder ... (now I proceed to pile on) ... but I never see him studying photos or going over things with coaches/receivers on the sideline. When I watch other games they always show cutaways of QB's going over things. Instead I see him just sitting there all doe-eyed. Maybe they cutaway at the wrong time, or I'm just missing it, but this guy doesn't look like he's serious about getting better.
    Life for me now is GRAVY!! Not depressed, but I do get heated. that performance was shameful. The team was totally unprepared. That falls on the coach. They were not a Pro team today. a joke

    I fault our coaches mostly for that, they should be getting in his face and making him look at that stuff whether he wants to or not.

    However, I doubt our coaching staff even understands what the photos are for. They are truly clueless.

    This team failed from the top down:

    Our genius owner has hired two Head Coaches...both have been horrible.

    Our two HC's have hired horrible coordinators - anyone care to defend the brilliant play calling of Musgrave, or the Defensive results of Williams? We didn't stop Detroit....Detroit did.

    Our QB is a continuation of mediocrity that we've been practicing since Culpepper failed.

    I have been saying that the change had to come from the top...I stand by that.

    Frazier, Musgrave, and Williams blew it....horribly.

    I can't even begin to describe how angry I am with the play calling of Musgrave. We would do better having a magic 8 ball calling plays for us.

    As for Williams...the only reason the media hasn't latched on to him as a Defensive "Guru" is because his name isn't Dom Capers....but they're both horrible.

    Granted...it's week 1....but some of what we saw was inexcusable.

    Vikings vs. Lions Game Thread

    Like I said earlier. I would like the team to seriously consider trading JA to a contender for a 1st round draft pick. We are going nowhere anyway and it should be apparent we are going to need a QB.

    Look I'm upset with Ponder, too, but Tebow??? That would be worse. His career is over. I was blown away anyone picked him up, as the Patriots did, and completely unsurprised when he was released. His crazy, one in a bazillion, fourth quarter comeback streak in 2011, including beating the Vikings, was a fluky, lucky, bizarre anomaly. Plus I watch football for the action, not to get preached to during the interview after every game (I know he's not the only player that does that but he sure was worse than most).

    Oh yeah the Lions took out KW's knee in the preseason, then subsequently run Reggie Bush up the middle every other play. Nice.
    We didn't play the Lion's in preseason. There are no divisional games in preseason.

    Sure glad we got rid of our run stuffing CB. We didn't miss him at all.

    Just like the TJack experiment, the Ponder experiment is proving to be a disaster. Very poor effort from the coaching staff on down. Going to be a tough year boys. This team was only going to exceed expectations if Ponder did- and he is simply not the man for the job. Teams will load 8 or 9 in the box and dare Ponder to pass. But if that's indeed his house someone emailed me pics of he'll have a helluva nice pad to hide out in- not to mention some high class tail to salve his wounds.

    I blame the coaching because our starters looked like crap all throughout preseason and we still gave them the 4th game off. Why? I don't understand "standard operating procedure" when your team clearly needs all the work it can get. Now our team opens the season playing like crap. Great! Glad we're wasting regular season games on things that should be worked on in camp and preseason.
