    Oh wait Gary misses a clutch field goal that would have given us a 10 point lead with less then three minutes in the game.
    Super bowl hopes down the drain, and thousands of men crying all around me.
    There is no reason why anyone would say Gary isn't to blaim.
    We were 15-1, had one of the best teams all around, and the guy that didn't miss a field goal in two years biffed one.
    Can you say bull crap?

    Oh wait! Moss drops a TD pass that would have had us 14 points up instead of 7. Yeah, lets just forget about that.
    Anderson's fault. :

    Moss only had 1 catch in the entire 2nd half & overtime for a measly 4 yards. Yeah, let's just forget about that. Anderson's fault.
    :

    Funny how the crotch sniffers don't want to bring that up or even acknowledge it happened. It's so damn easy to blame Anderson.

    Forget the fact that despite the missed FG, we were still up 7 points & the Falcons were 71 yards away from the endzone with only 2 minutes on the clock. The defense (of which Anderson is not part of) allowed Chandler to drive the Falcons 71 yards for a TD in just eight plays to tie the game.

    Yeah, lets forget that too. Anderson's fault.

    Let's also forget that the Vikings won the toss in overtime & failed to move the ball. Yeah, let's just forget about that. Anderson's fault.

    Let's also forget that the Vikings got a second possession in overtime & again failed to move the ball. Yeah, let's just forget about that. Anderson's fault.

    I have to wonder, as do many of the other fans that remember the game, if the fans who continue to or even once began to blame Anderson for the loss, even watched the fucking game!

Gary its your fault and you no it.. so guys dont try to defend him
    TIRED? TIRED!? lmao...SI, that is rediculous, ofcourse they get tired, but c'mon, thats got to be the worst excuse you could have...also if our defense and offense were tired, im sure Atlanta's would be tired too...lmao, its not Anderson's fault, its time for you to grow up and get over it, one game is never decided by one play, never...every single play effects the outcome of the game, so don't blame it on the kicker who was put in a very hard position that he should not have been put in....its plain rediculous.

    Re: Will you ever forgive Gary Anderson?

    I can forgive Gary, but it still bothers me. The worser culprit is either Billick or Denny (don't know who was making the decision). We sat on the ball as halftime was coming up. No shots to Moss down the field. All year long we had been aggressive in that situation, but not in the most important game of the year. We let up off the gas, and when the second half began, we couldn't find the gas pedal again. Our momentum was gone and we started to be conservative. Conservative was not what got us in that game, and it sure didn't get us out. There is a time and place to be conservative, but that 1998 team wasn't the kind that could turn it on and off. We should have tried putting the dagger in their heart as time expired in the first half. Everything that followed was just an attempt to NOT LOSE. Playing to NOT LOSE will lose more game than playing to win. It was the coaches. We never should have come down to a field goal attempt in the first place.

    All of those points are definitely true. As is true in ANY close game. But there is one point in EVERY close game that you can see where it went from one side to the other ... and Gary Anderson missing a chippy is that point.
    Should Randy have been better (he was a rook mind you) ... yes ... should Denny have coached better ... yes ... should the defense of held ... yes ... was OT nervewracking on offense ... yes.
    But should of, would of, could ofs would not even be discussed and this would not have been a thread if Gary
    Motehrfucking Anderson hits an chippy, indoor 38-yard fucking field goal. So sure ... not all his fault ... but yes, more his than anyone else's.

    Re: Will you ever forgive Gary Anderson?

    Long Long time ago............... that game is history.

    Gary is cool!

    I remember someone came up to me after that game and said that GA tried to commit suicide and was alright.
    I said what happened.
    The guy said, he tried to hang himself but couldn't kick the chair out from under himself.
    I felt bad for GA.
    He was forgiven within hours of that game.

    POOR Joke!
    I really felt bad for GA, he didn't miss anything all season or whatever that streak was, it was awesome.

    Now that is different. I do think it is his fault we did not go to the Super Bowl. But yes, I forgive him. We are all human and he happen to be the most human at the worst time for the Minnesota Vikings. I am glad he was not run out of town ... and still remember him drilling that 54-yarder to knock the Dolphins out of the playoffs a few years later.

    How the heck is it more his fault than anyone elses? lets see...how many plays do the rest of the team take the field compared to the kicker?
    There is not way its his fault more than anyone else's...

    I disagree. We were up 13 points when Smith knocked the ball from Cunningham's hand & the Falcons recovered the fumble. That was a big turning point for the Falcons & gave them momentum.

    The game never should have come down to that kick & in reality it didn't. We were still up 7 points despite the miss. Denny & his prevent defense let us down on several occasions in that game. We also should have been tacking on points instead of becoming so conservative. Again, Denny's fault for that.

    That happened in regulation time, not OT.

    I guess we can go back and forth forever. But the fumble (while it is a big point) happened and we still had a solid lead and a ENTIRE half of football to play. When Anderson missed the kick ... it simply gave the Falcons hope that would have been squashed if he hit it.
    Look, we all like the guy, but saying he is not to blame more than anything else in that game is a little ridiculous. Kicker's are paid to make THAT kick ... not the 39 other ones he hit during the season and in the playoffs ... he is paid to hit THAT kick. Norwood was a deserved goat in the Super Bowl against the Giants because he is paid to make THAT kick. Sure the Bills could have done a lot to win that game .... but bottom line is Norwood, like Anderson ... had the game and entire season on his foot and he blew it.
    Anderson fucking blew it ... not Moss' dropped pass, not Cunningham's fumble (which was a good play by Smith), not the OT possessions, not even Dwayne Rudd dropping the game-sealing INT on Atlanta's final drive. ANDERSON had it all in his hands, on his foot ... and HE fucking blew it.
