    Who gives a crap Childress wanted to end the game?

    Ok wow.
    So Childress wanted to end the game.
    Who cares!
    The Vikings had an amazing last drive and got into easy field goal range, especially for Longwell, and whoever chose the plays decided to go for it.
    They not only went for it, but ended the game in an interception!
    Who agrees with me that even the preseason should be played a little more competitively than that?

    Not me.
    Childress did the right thing.
    Preseason is about finding out what your players can and cant do under game situations.
    We already know that Longwell can kick a short field goal.
    What we didn't know is whether or not JTO could finish the drive under pressure to win the game.
    Now we do.

    Going into overtime would have been a huge mistake.
    We would just have been risking injuries to try and win a game that means nothing come September.
    Remember a few years ago when Denny Green took us to 4-0 in preseason?
    We promptly finished 5-11 after that.

    I don't. Childress did the right thing. He saw what he wanted from his players then went for the win, rather than keeping them on the field for a meaningless game and risking any more injuries. A very mature decision by a coach who has something to prove to everybody. Tice would have gone for the FG though

    I think it was a really smart move by the coaches.

    I don't give a damn about who wins these games. All I care about is what the team showed on the field. Especially the starters in the 1. quarter.

    It's over, forget it, go to the next meaningless game.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    I don't agree with you.
    Pre-season is MEANINGLESS.
    Imagine if the Vikes tie the game, lose the coin-flip and then Ryan Longwell gets seriously injured on the kick-off.
    That would suck a billion times more than losing a MEANINGLESS game.

    Did I mention that that game was MEANINGLESS?

    I don't think I understand.

    Either it's too early or you fail.

    It's 7:35Am here, I have had one cup of coffee and I feel awake so I'm going to go with option B. You Fail.

    I thought once the preseason started we wouldn't be inventing topics anymore to fill the time.
    I forgot that we do that 24/7/365.

    I must be getting old.
