    Re: Week 9 Game Ball vs Texans

    Gotta go with Gus ,3 TD and only pick(not his fault totally).Nice and accuratte arm.We can´t ask for much more.

    Special mention also to Jared Allen ,the guy is a beast,that left handed sack made my Sunday...

    Meh, Gus' performance didn't hold a candle to what the defense did for us today. Those 3 turnovers, especially M-Will's pick in the endzone saved our ass. Gus' interception cost us 7 points.

    Not Gus' fault though. That nimble minded coach of ours, who loves to run the ball on 3-15, took away from Gus what was working all the first half. He was throwing the ball pretty well & connecting with receivers, but in the second half decided to pull a "Denny" & go into conservative running mode. It damn near cost us the game.

    The passing game was working fine. He should have left it the fuck alone.

    Did I mention he went with a run on 3rd & 15 with 52 seconds left in the half when Frerotte was connecting on the long balls?

    I'm surprised he didn't elect to take a fucking knee instead.
    That was very frustrating. Luckily Peterson really broke out in the 4th quarter with all of those long runs. It was looking like it was going to be one of "those games" like the Colts game this year early in the second half.

    He finally stopped calling the offense like he is afraid to score points.

    3rd & 15 run call? Give me a break. Bevell or Childress laid an egg on that one.
    I never said it was perfect. But it was a hell of alot better to see them throw into the endzone with Rice and Shank instead of trying to run every play inside the 30 and settle for FG's.


    Are you pissy about the pass play to Berrian on the first drive too?

    That run on 3rd and 15 is in the Vikings DNA. They have been doing that sort of shit ever since Bud Grant retired so I come to expect it. Bob Schnelker and Tom Moore pioneered it for the team and the play is handed down from one coach to the next.

    "Game ball goes to Jared Allen. He had constant pressure all day and that one handed sack while being held was amazing.
    " I'll second that.

    Although seemed to me everyone had a good game. It's hard for me to really pick anyone. BB's catched, AD's second half nad the defense was awsome. Also special teams deserve a big thumbs
    up today.

    The team deserves the game ball. It's a team game. The whole team showed up today and guess what we won. The offense contributed. The defence contributed. The kicking game contributed and the ST contributed. Amazing what happens when all parts contribute. Go Vikings.

    That's all well and good but there's only one gameball and it's gotta go to JA.
    He was in the QBs' faces all day.
    Next would be Gus or Greenway I think.

    i dont think there is a bad pick maybe because i think that this really was a team win. i ended up voting for ad because he took over in the second half
    We're bringing purple back.

    Game ball mos def goes to OFFENSIVE LINE.
    Kept Gus up to make those plays with arm and helped create holes for AD.
    Better play calling helped as well and better execution.
    Looks good to have Sidney Rice back ....sooner or later Allison has to get one long one too....can't wait.....Greenbay here we come....game of the year if they win....ugly or not.

    It was nice to actually see them throw into the endzone, but some of the stupid shit they have done can only be described as bone-headed.
