I can't think of one argument in Childress' favor here.

I pretty much agree with everything you said. Just because Favre is the story of the NFL season doesn't mean that Favre needs to call all the shots. I mean I know Favre has a big ego, but seriously, you aren't going to bring a team back from a 12 point deficit with 7 minutes left on the clock. Maybe Jackson should have come into the game, he could get away from the pass rush that our offensive line seemed to not be able to contain. I would like to see a little TJack myself.

How about Carolina's pass rush was uber aggressive and Jackson can slip out and make them pay? We couldn't block a soul last night, Jackson's mobility can help neutralize that.

I'm not saying he should have pulled Favre, but he did have a point in at least maybe trying Jackson for a series or two.

If only stats told the true story of every player.. Favre's pocket awareness was non-existent last night. He usually does a good job of at least avoiding one guy but he just couldn't move at all. He was holding onto the ball Rodgers-style as well.

Look, you have to credit Carolina's defense, too. There's a reason Julius Peppers makes like $20M a season. Combine that with a horrible game by the offensive line (just 7 days after dominating Cincinnati up front), and you've got yourself a problem.

We've just become a predictable offense since the Arizona loss. Not enough quick first down passes, too many Peterson stretch plays/tosses on first down.

Look at the best games we've played on offense this year. Screen passes, passes on 1st down, things to slow down the pass rush. More please.

Now that I've defended Childress and Bevell a bit, it's time to bash.

The fact that we weren't even chipping Julius Peppers last night was just inexcusable. Look what Carolina did to Jared Allen. He saw a single team maybe twice in 30+ pass plays. They rolled to the right side of the field away from him like 10 times. He didn't make a peep after the sack fumble.

Put Kleinsasser in for Shiancoe and just have him protect and hope Harvin/Rice/Berrian get open. Just a poor gameplan all around. They saw the tape from Cincy and just hoped the OL could get it done again.

They know what they have in Phil Loadholt. He's not a pass blocking specialist by any means. Take the guy out on 3rd downs or something and put somebody in that can move their feet. Dallas will absolutely destroy us in the playoffs with the way they move DeMarcus Ware around.

As far as McKinnie goes, he's still an above average LT. I'll just chalk it up to a bad game and Peppers beasting out of his mind. His hands were absolutely trashy last night. He's never been particularly quick out of his stances, but usually uses his hands very well to at least slow some momentum down.

I was scared Favre was gonna get hurt with all the hits he was taking last night. While I agree with the thought of taking him out to make sure he didn't get beat up too badly. I think there is no way you can think of doing it while the games is so close in the 3rd.

I agree with you. No way you take him out when the game was that close at that point. And to whoever said he can't bring us back from a 12 point lead with 7 minutes left, that was flat out stupid. That is only 2 TDs. It is utterly insane if you don't think it's possible with our weapons to score 2 TDs in 7 minutes.

I think we should have taken him out before the drive where he threw the pick though, as it was over by then.

I was talking about against the Panthers. No way we could have rushed two touchdowns in 7 minutes with all the pressure that they were getting on Favre.

Well the media is going to have fun with the "turmoil in Minny" hype leading up to the MNF game you can believe. I read one link(granted it's PFT) that Childress tried to bench Favre twice before 2nite, once during the GB game when Favre supposedly changed the play up 10 to a deep pass in the game, and another vs the Lions this year. Not sure if you've read it, or how true it is, but it'll get some press.


Then Childress was supposedly pissed that Favre mentioned this story to the press at all.


I don't think it'll be a big deal, but I expect them to hype it up like it is one. I think if you guys can just get back to getting Peterson going and Favre managing the game instead of trying to win the game you should be fine. Besides you should still have a bye and one home game which should favor you in that regards.

Yeah, I was looking forward to one of T-Jacks patented jump passes into double coverage.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder...I guarantee if he would have came in he would have been terrible and we all would be talking about how horrible a decision it was.

Pulling a top 5 QB in the league with a 1 point lead in the 4th quarter when your fighting for homefield advantage/first round bye is mindnumbingly stupid no matter how it's twisted.

I was too. It wasn't likely, but 2 TDs in 7 minutes is nothing, and supposedly when this first happened, there was 9 minutes left in the 3RD, and we were up 7-6.

A couple of things:

The feud between Favre and Childress is over audibles. Chilly is getting pissy over Favre calling audibles, which is ********. What did Childress expect? I think it is becoming less likely that Favre will return next year after this. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4767366

The Vikings 2010 schedule is out. It only has the teams we will play and not the weeks. http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcnorth/pos...2010-schedules
Quote:
Minnesota Vikings
Home: NFC North, Dallas, New York Giants, Buffalo, Miami, Arizona
Away: NFC North, Philadelphia, Washington, New England, New York Jets, New Orleans
That schedule looks very tough right now. NFC East and AFC East, with Arizona and New Orleans. Could be as many as 8 games against 09-10 playoff teams(NO, ARI, NE, PHI, DAL/NYG, GB 2x, and either Miami or NYJ). I don't like the idea of having to go to New Orleans either.

This is what prock and I did with the Vikings mock draft. Tell me your thought, concerns, issues or other. And Please make prock feel welcome to the forum by giving him a rep comment. He helped greatly with this GM job.

2nd round 62nd overall: Morgan Burnett, S, Georgia Tech
3rd round 93rd overall: Navorro Bowman, LB, Penn State

Overall, I'm happy with my draft. I think that I filled all major needs since Adalius Thomas would be playing DE. I feel as though I got 3 first round picks in this draft. I love Colt McCoys speed as well as the fact that he would fit perfectly in Brad Childress's offense. Morgan Burnett has potential to be a beast, and Navorro Bowman was BPA.

I think you guys did a very good job. I'm not a big fan of Thomas at LE, I don't think he'd be strong enough against the run for that. I think you guys got very good value and players that filled needs with the rest of the picks.

I don't think Carolina was/is that bad. I don't think they are as good as they've played the last two weeks, but without Delhomme throwing 2 picks every game, they are a pretty good team. Good RBs and OL, although Gross and Otah are out, and a pretty good defense, especially when Peppers plays, and Steve Smith can definitely make plays.

All the Vikings need to do is win out, and the Saints need to lose and we will have 1st seed. We can hope and pray.

Let's just win tonight and go from there.

I learned my lesson from the Miami season after the OU win.

I think they should sit AP. Let him rest, and at the same time make him understand how important it is to hold the ball. Plus we need him 100% in the playoffs, and its not like we dont have a good back up.

Should we also bench Longwell for missing the PAT, and Winfield for blowing so many coverages?

Start Chester next week. We can only live with so many fumbles, there's a certain point when enough is enough. Chester has been given us pretty much the same productivity as of late anyway.

I really don't want to be negative like this but I have no faith for us in the playoffs. Granted teams like New Orleans and Arizona aren't playing great either but if we can't beat a team like Chicago we aren't going to beat a team like Philly.

After sleeping on the game, here are my thoughts

- Trench play was pourous last night on both sides of the ball (McKinnie actually wasn't the problem last night at all, he was our best lineman. Herrera and Loadholt were awful) -- We aren't winning another game if they don't sack up. It must be a road thing, cause they've been great at home all year (especially Jared Allen)

- Favre was tremendous last night outside of 2 mistakes. The missed slant to Berrian and the dropped pick by Bowman intended for Percy. What a 2nd half, what a 4th quarter.

- I have a real feeling we are going to open up the offense the rest of the way, Favre showed his worth last night and Childress has to recognize that we're just not running the ball right now. I would be totally fine with a 45-50 pass game plan in the playoffs. He was making throws 15-20 yards downfield with no step, backfooting balls. Really, can't say enough about him.

- Are we really going to fumble the ball in OT, Adrian? That's just poor and inexcusable. At some point, pride has to kick in. It's got to be mental at this point. Get Robert Smith's ass up here and take Adrian under his wing.

- Kevin Williams has been invisible for the last half of the season. I don't know what's wrong with him but he's not even getting a double team anymore.

- 2nd half was really exciting to see us actually show emotion and put points up on the board. I hope this is a wakeup call.

- I just don't think we're a very good road football team at all. Especially up front. They just don't get up for the games away from the Dome. Hopefully the playoffs kicks their ass in gear.

- Winfield's not even close to 100%.. he was great for the Cincy game but he's aggravated that injury since then.

- Cedric Griffin is awesome.. never thought I'd say those words.. he's easily been our best defender the past month.

- Madieu Williams needs to go. I'm sorry. That's a poor effort all around. At least Tyrell Johnson was somewhat decent last night. I know Williams is a nice guy, but enough with the jokes. This guy's going to single handedly cost us a playoff game.

- Anyone notice Berrian has 60 catches this year? Huh? If I had to guess, it would be around 25.

- Sidney Rice is a god among men. Send him to the Pro Bowl please, he's been a top 3 receiver this year. What a ******* catch in the endzone.

- Really, it just comes down to execution. We got 2 lucky breaks on the dropped INT and missed FG by Gould (which is rare) and couldn't pull it off. I'm not ready to give up on this team by any means, I think if the line play improves we can handle anyone in the NFL. But this last month has been so deflating. What have we done to deserve such torture from our sports teams?

Oh, and Jasper Brinkley.. about what we expected, right? Huge hitter, good lateral movement, poor pass defender. Frazier needs to blitz him more. I'm sure he's having nightmares about the Jason Wittens and Jermichael Finleys of the world against Brinkley 1 on 1.

I have liked what I've seen from Brinkley, really. He did blow that goalline td to Clark but the guy was a 5th rounder. We can't really ask for much more out of that spot.

I'm just glad we didn't sign Nap Harris. Brinkley is better than Harris.

Yeah I forgot to mention Herrera, that was one of the worst performances from an offensive lineman I've seen in a while. The Bears don't even have a good defensive line. He made 2009 Tommie Harris look like 2005 Tommie Harris.

What's really disappointing about that ******* fumble is that Peterson looked like he was running with a purpose again. I was impressed with his performance for the first time in about 5 weeks. But we can't even have him on the field if he'f going to fumble this much. At that point in the game at that spot on the field you hold on that's your number one freakin priority, hold on with two hands.
