    What killed the game was the poor officiating. What was that call on Williamson for PI, or how about the several non calls on the Bears for holding. Late flags all game after the plays were over...
    Childress did call some terrible series and the last play of the game was just dumb. Hopefully the Seakhawks beat them next week and the Vikes bounce back with a win
    Well with how good Seattle looks, I hope so, we need someone to step up and beat the Bears now.

    EDIT: Why is this in Help!! section...
    My guess is because our offense needs help scoring a TD

    Aside from our first drive in games the O can't get a major

    The O line has some heavy money in it and I was expecting to see them grow faster, granted we have faced great D lines. But the offense needs to score not just special teams and defense.

    Re: We had the game and blew it...twice.

    Today's game, in a nutshell descibes my nearly 40 years of being a Vikings fan.
    I'm not a negative person at all, but it seems as though the Vikings always find a way to disappoint me right when I feel things are going well.

    If there are any Monty Python fans out there, I feel as though I'm trapped in the Deja Vu epsiode when it come to the Vikings.

    SKOL VIKES!
    I was brain-washed as a child into becoming a Viking fan in Ohio of all places.

    Ok this game lived up to the nail biting expectations...we all saw the real Grossman, he makes bad decisions under pressure, most of what he did vs the Lions and Pack was a fluke. Fortunatly for him we found everyway to give them the game and they made the most of it.

    The 2 and 8 to pass was suspect, the play call on 4th and 2 was the worst call i've ever seen, that's like using a 180LB WR at tailback in the goaline...you just don't do it. Whomever is calling the plays needs to hand over the reigns to someone else cause we just gave the Bears the game.

    The Bears didn't deserve this win, they didn't beat us, we beat ourselves, again.
    to be quite honest the vikes got 10 points off turnovers to the bears 7 points. I'd have to say the bears 'gave' more to the vikings.
    As for the 4th down play i totally agree. I was shocked at that play call.

    Re: We had the game and blew it...twice.

    I have been disapointed this year on the readyness of johnson to settle for a field goal.
    Today we lost because of it.
    I do think he can try to force a pass from time to time to get seven instead of 3 every time.
    The red zone give ups will kill this team every time they play a quality team.
    And why the heck can he not throw the ball 3 yards to save a intent grounding.
    I will place this loss on johnson, his bad decisions in the red zone, if he would have lobbed the ball an extra three yards, Jimmy K would have had a first down, instead he throws it out of bounds.
    His terrible throw on fourth and two, and his attempted hand off at to chester taylor that ended up losing the game.
    There is a reason he makes 1.2.
    Bring on TJ please.
    You republican whore!

    TJ is out.
    I'm glad an L finally came our way so you could unleash your bring on TJ post.
    Painfully simplistic view.

    Re: We had the game and blew it...twice.

    BJ is the only thing on the vikings offense thats actually knows how to play....look at what the OLINE gives him and all the dropped passes...and stupid play calling...none of it is his fault...he figured if grossman can intentionally ground the ball, why cant he?

    WTP called it.
    CCthebest will resurface with a vengeance after the first loss.
    You hate BJ and you hate Childress.
    Most of us know that.
    This was a hard fought game and a turnover decided the game, not too surprising.

    I don't think anyone is "settling for FG's." That just happens to be the only way the offense can score right now. Penalties, not BJ, are killing our drives. We move the ball when everyone does what they are supposed to do -only to bring it right back when someone does something dumb.

    This would happen no matter who was at QB
