    Wrong ball to blame for missed FG?

    Vikings kicker Ryan Longwell thought he had the distance to kick a career-long 57-yarder at the end of the first half.

    But he was duped by the old-switcheroo - or lack thereof.

    "They put a quarterback ball in," Longwell said, referring to the different balls used in the game. "They didn't put a K ball in the game.".........

    I hate it when players make excuses for poor play.
    Thats my damn job.
    ;D

    In addition to quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, Childress said wide receiver Robert Ferguson suffered a concussion after taking a shot on the sideline.
    I hate to admit it, but Fergy was everywere yesterday.
    Some nice catches and he can still throw a hell of a block.

    Your winning me over Ferg.
    Keep it up.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Man when we try a long field goal like that we should have atleast one guy that can run in there. All those linemen rumbling around that guy just skated past them. Cudo's to the team for galvanizing rather than crumbling. We really dominated SD the second half.... It was the best Sunday we've had in a long while. Let's build on it.

    I love the LT quote saying he would be shocked if Henderson didn't make the pro-bowl. That said, he'll probably get snubbed like most vikings players do each year.

    I'm not sure if he would have caught the runner, but there was a pretty blatant hold on one of our linemen trying to cut him off ( Birk?) I though it was Birk, but is he in on kicks? At any rate it was a blatant hold that should have nullified the TD IMHO
