    I think Childress should have punted rather then having him attempt that 54 yard field goal but I'm not the coach so it is what it is.
    That and they still won so who am I to complain?

    :
    Yeah, I didn't like that call either.
    It put us in a vulnarable position.
    I think he was very confident in our defense.
    It definitely showed our hand to other teams as to Longwell's current capabilities.
    I think the reason that call was made was because of the missed extra point, if we were ahead at that point with the defence playing as well as they were punting would have been the decision. I'm not too sure why Kluwe is holding on the kicks, last year Brad was doing it even when he was starting, if there is a bad snap I'd rather have the ball in the hands of a QB than a punter.

    T. Jackson holding would have been a good option if he had practice as the holder.
    I think he could have run that extra point in.

    I was thinking the same thing when it happened. Kluwe almost made it, but it would have been sweet to watch TJ run that in for a Viking touchdown!

    I don't understand why they don't use him or another player with a good arm & legs. It comes in handy for situations like this & leaves the option open for faking a field goal
    & going for 6 or 2 point conversions.

    EXACTLY!
    It just gives them another option on the play that they DON'T have with Kluwe taking the snap.
    Makes sense to me, but then again what the heck do I know!
