Well I learned to never bet against your team! That great win kicked me out of my survivor league. I figured it would be a win win situation anyway. That win was well worth the $20!
Gotta give the whole team credit for that one. Ponder played great ball the whole game; something I wanted to see! Besides the idiotic ref. mistakes and Gerharts ability to hang onto the damn ball, I couldn't be happier.
Who would've thunk the vikings would start the season with a better record than the Pats and Aints?
09-24-2012, 12:34 PM #42The 49ers found themselves struggling in Minnesota on Sunday, unable to move the football consistently or stretch the Vikings’ defense through the air. It was precisely the situation San Francisco added Randy Moss for, right?
Moss, despite making three catches for 27 yards earlier in the game, spent the fourth quarter of San Francisco’s 24-13 loss on the sidelines, while QB Alex Smith repeatedly looked for Mario Manningham — the other free agent wide receiver brought in by the 49ers this summer, in hopes of sparking an underwhelming passing attack.
Moss’s fourth-quarter benching was made all the more noteworthy by the fact that it came in Minnesota, sight of some of Moss’s greatest years in the NFL.
1. Can we all finally admit he is done?
2. Can we admit that our DB's looked pretty good when the DL put consistent pressure on the QB?Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

I do agree to a point, but I blame the coaching staff and the refs (yes, very seldom do I hack on them) more than I do Toby.
Refs......How in the heck can it be a fumble after the whistle blows?
Coaches....If a players is fumbling (The did it right after Percy recovered AD's) you give it to him again to show confidence and hope and pray he doesn't back to back fumble. If he does, you pull his ass and put the other guy back on the field.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

I don't understand why Frazier didn't take this guy out of the game, especially after the second fumble. I can understand giving him another shot, especially after the debacle that ensued on the first one. But why give it to him the 3rd time? This not only hurts the team's chances of winning the game, it hurts Toby. Why would you want to defend Toby on that?
They decided AD was done, and that was that.

I havent had a chance to post in a while.....but I might as well take the opportunity after the win over the 49ers! I live near the bay area and work with many 49er fans. After week one, they started their superbowl talk! They gave me crap all week leading up to the game. THANK YOU VIKES! You made my Monday morning! I pulled a recipe for crow off the internet and handed it out to everyone that game me crap all week!
SKOL EveryoneI'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

In the end, I'm leaning towards the coaches. It isn't like they didn't have options at RB. Could have put Percy back there or even let the FB run it.
Course most on here think I stickup for Toby to much anyway.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Strange....haven't heard a peep all week out of them, Saints fans or PUKER fans......Course I hunted them down..........Love talking football smack.
Been a good week for it.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

In hindsight, after seeing what hurt the Niners laid on the Jets yesterday, it's pretty obvious that they overlooked us, even coming to our house. That loss PISSED THEM OFF.
Not to take anything away from our boys, they played great for the most part and really brought it.
The coaching staff and team leaders must have (deservedly) lit into the players after the Colts debacle. The biggest difference? What is it that I've been harping on since early last season? DISCIPLINE! It makes so much difference, truly.
I'll maker my comments on the Lions game in that thread, but suffice it to say I am very pleased with what I've seen out of the Vikings these past two weeks, and am looking forward to more of the same in weeks to come.
