Who still likes the Vikes?? - 09/01/05 09:28 PM

cuz I do!!! I think they are best team in the NFC this year. The moves they made in the offseason on D-Fence, plus the trade of our version of TO(Moss) should stablize a team that historically has had too much tormoil.

Now if only Mike Tice can coach.

You know whodunit....I am from OK as well and I wish we would get a NFL team. I would be there all the time. I heard that Tulsa was trying to get one. Actually last I heard they were trying to get any professional team they could whether it be baseball, basketball, football etc...

I read a plan to actually try and build a stadium half-way between Tulsa and OKC that way both cities could attend.

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 09/01/05 09:57 PM

My name is Princess Leia and I like the Vikes.

Not because I've lived in MN my whole life. Not because I think Purple and Gold go together better than Green and Yellow . Not because I think the Metrodome (or Rollerdome as Mike Ditka called it) is a great stadium.

It must be because I'm a glutton for punishment.

I guess it's like I expect them to start off strong every year and play awesome against strong teams. Every year it's "our year." Nothing better than beating the Pack at Lambeau. Nothing worse than losing to the Bears at home (sorry mom of princess natalie).

Honestly, I don't have a lot of hope for significant post season activity. It's like watching a train wreck ... I can't stop watching (and cheering for our team) and they depress me year after year.

I've learned to cope by expecting the worst (no playoffs) -any victories (especially against the Pack ) are gravy.

I'm still recovering from the year that Denny Green took a knee at the end of regulation to Atlanta in the Division Championship ... and we lost our chance to go to the Superbowl. That year was "our year." And, that's the only Vikings game I've ever been to.

I feel much better now. Thank you.

Where are ya Snowqueen, beaconpaul, sarahH, D2X, et al ... ??

At least Whodunit and I can have our own Vikings fan support group courtesy of BOL


BTW, I have a Randy Moss jersey if anyone wants it ...

You know what I mean? I watched that awesome play they had last year, you know which one I'm talking about, and I couldn't help but think...'keep going guys, you can take it to the end.' I think they will do well this year. Besides...I don't want to hear anymore of TO in the news. I am so sick of that.

Call me silly, but I don't see why people think the Vikings are going to have a good season. Sure they've made some improvements on defense, but until they make improvements at head coach, they will never be better than a tier-2 team. In fact, I'm not even sure they can take their division this year. Provided they stay healthy, I think the Lions have the best shot at winning the NFC North.

If Mike Tice continues on this path his coaching days are numbered. Losing he who will go unnamed and our offensive coordinator should not have caused this kind of drop.

Tice will meet a pyrrhic demise if things don't turn around soon.

Posted By: Hated By Some

Re: Who still likes the Vikes?? - 09/19/05 07:09 PM

I will blame Tice. Culpepper is overrated. I don't think he even has the best arm in the game (Vick and McNabb 1 and 1a). Vikes have had some bad luck injuries too but Tice isn't the best gameplanning coach around.
Posted By: Bengals Fan

Re: Who still likes the Vikes?? - 09/19/05 07:10 PM

ROFL Mexico Vick has the best arm? You are kidding right? Vick has no arm. McNabb, Manning, and Palmer have the best arms in the league.
Posted By: Hated By Some

Re: Who still likes the Vikes?? - 09/19/05 07:14 PM

I was actually serious despite the seeming bias (I actually think he's fun to watch but I am still bitter about last monday). Vick has a cannon. I am only talking about pure distance or power arm strength. Manning is not there with the cannon though he is a better traditional passer. Vick has very little accuracy but he can throw it 80 yards. Palmer does have a pretty good arm homer, I will grant you that.
Posted By: XODUS

Re: Who still likes the Vikes?? - 09/19/05 07:59 PM

The real problem is the Vikings can't run the ball. I guess Moss taking that safety with him down field helped the running game more than anybody could have thought. Culpepper's arm strength is fine, how soon you forget Culpepper to Moss and deep routes. If he had no arm then Moss would have been no threat.
Posted By: Hated By Some

Re: Who still likes the Vikes?? - 09/19/05 08:12 PM

I didn't say that he doesn't have a strong arm. He has a very strong arm but I saw a Sporting News ranking of arms in the NFL and I disagree with him as the pick for #1 bazooka.
Posted By: redsfan

Re: Who still likes the Vikes?? - 09/19/05 08:59 PM

Michael, I have seen all those quarterbacks play live, and I have to tell you, Ron is right. I saw Vick throw a ball 65 yards on a dead flat line on a rollout in his sophomore year at Virginia Tech. To make it harder, he was throwing off his back foot, not his front. The ball was picked out the air head high by the receiver, or it would have goe farther.

I have been an NFL fan for most of my life, and the only other two QBs I can remember with that much arm strength are Terry Bradshaw of the Steelers and Greg Cook, who played for our beloved Who-deys back in 1969.

Back to the issue at hand, I went to the library after the 1st hour of that debacle yesterday. Tice pulled Bennett and gave the nod to Moore, why won't he pull Culpepper - at least for a series.

Does anyone think that having Matt Birk (center) out is making things worse? It certainly can't be helping. All it would have taken was a 1 year extension on his contract. Grrr.

The difference between the Vikings & Packers (both 0-2) this year is that the Vikings were expected to do something this year. The Packers weren't expected to do a whole lot.
Posted By: XODUS

Re: Who still likes the Vikes?? - 09/19/05 09:36 PM

Minneapolis police reported that some individual attempted to "egg" Mike Tice's house last night.

An empty egg carton was recovered at the scene. Two eggs hit Mr. Tice's house, three eggs went over his house and hit his neighbor's back door, two eggs hit the houses of each of his next door neighbors, and the remaining three eggs were found broken on the ground near the carton from where the individual threw them.

Based on the evidence found at the scene, police officials have put out an APB on Daunte Culpepper.

Posted By: RandomName

Re: Who still likes the Vikes?? - 09/23/05 07:13 PM

From one of my fantasy football sites:

"Michael Bennett - RB, Minnesota Vikings 09/22/05

Kevin Seifert of the Minnesota Star Tribune reports that the Minnesota Vikings have held brief discussions with the Arizona Cardinals regarding the potential trade of RB Michael Bennett, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. No deal is imminent at this point for Bennett to be shipped to the Cardinals and head coach Dennis Green, who selected Bennett in the first round of the 2001 draft during his stint in Minnesota. The NFL trading deadline is Oct. 18.

Huddle Up: If this deal becomes a reality it primarily impacts the fantasy fortunes of four backs, Bennett, Mewelde Moore, Marcel Shipp and JJ Arrington with Moore standing the most to gain from Bennett's departure from Minneapolis. Conversely, Bennett's addition to the Arizona backfield will create the kind of fantasy confusion we currently see in the Minnesota running back depth chart."

I've been a Vikings fan all my life. Not to make excuses for them, but, we do have a new offensive cordinator this year. We are without Ontario Smith, Matt Birk and Moss. These are major changes they must figure out, until then its going to be a very long season.
Besides these changes, we have been out coached in both our losses.
But...... our punter punts the ball very well.

Alas, we see why we drafted Troy Williamson. Soon Randy Moss will be a name forgotten. One thing to note is how good defensively those first two opponents were. I hope
Bennett never comes back. Mewelde Moore was my fantasy football savior last year and I think he is the best back on the team. League beware the Culpepper express is back on track. And I believe he was the top scoring fantasy QB in most formats this week.

Lord, I hope not. I'm not a Vikings fan; I just don't like seeing so much unlawful behavior by professional athletes. If what's being reported is true, it certainly shows poor judgment on the part of several Vikings players. Professional athletes have to be aware that their personal conduct off the playing field has the potential to become public knowledge. If this story has legs, the media will hound the players all season, and it will be a huge distraction. I think Tice has lost control of this team. It could wind up being a very bad season for Vikings fans.

I...can't believe I trusted C-Pepp enough again to let him off the bench of my fantasy team roster. He quickly rewarded me with zero TDs and two INTs. He has now been exiled to a perpetual tour of the pine, where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth, and never more shall he again see starting glory. Thus endeth the lesson.

Let's fire Tice and hire Pete Carroll. Then trade up in the draft to get Reggie Bush. wait at this rate we may not have to trade up to get Bush.

You do recall that Pete Carroll was a complete failure as head coach of the New England Patriots, right? Some coaches are just meant for the college game. Spurrier is another example.

Besides, with the Vikings historically cheap coaching budget, Carroll could probably make more at USC. Maybe Wilf will change that.

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 10/18/05 09:18 PM

I don't really care who is the next coach as long as Tice doesn't make it through the season. Hopefully, we can dump Bennett and some other salary and pursue a legit RB and some OL help.

Keep in mind, though, the Vikes only defeated the "mighty" Packers, who were without Walker, Green, Davenport, and Ferguson. Basically Green Bay only had Favre, a couple of regular starters, a few surprise promotions from the practice squad, and some guy that was eating pretzels up in the stands.

Woe is me!!! Could the apparent season ending injury to Culpepper provide Tice with the excuse he needs to keep his job?? Congrat's to everyone who drafted C-Pep high in their fantasy football leagues, you can now feel good about setting your second round pick down. Maybe his knees would have been stronger if he hadn't been playing around on sex boats, they say it takes the knees out of boxers.

On a serious note, pending the MRI, this could be it for Culpepper. I know today's medicine is good, but he is a 300+ lb quaterback who likes to rely on his mobility. It could take him two years to get back and maybe longer. I think the Vikings have to look at drafting a QB now or at least try to get one on the free agent market.

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 10/31/05 11:02 PM

So, the question is....Do they draft Lienert? right now they are in position to be the third pick. Texans already have Carr and just spent a lot of money. Green Bay has Aaron Rodgers. Titans may sneak in for third worst, they may draft a QB.

It is official, ACL,MCL, and PCL. in other words, career over. Maybe if he was a younger smaller guy he could come back from this but I just don't see it happening for him. It is time to circle the long boats and see if Brad Johnson can find past glories in the purple and gold.

Can I vent about the Eagles on this thread? Seeing as we will likely have a top 5 pick at this rate and since we have 14 draft picks for the next draft, do you think we would be able to trade up to get Leinert as I really am ready to get rid of Donovan.
Posted By: XODUS

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 11/07/05 04:23 PM

you may Eagles vent here. I don't want Lienert for my Vikes, I think Omar Jacobs will do just fine. But I am mixed on what I want Brad Johnson to accomplish. In the NFC north if the Vikes got hot we could finish 10-6 or 9-7. sort of a reverse of recent seasons, but i want Tice gone.
Posted By: Hated By Some

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 11/07/05 04:29 PM

Brad is a bandaid. I am biased against Omar Jacobs (as I lost money when I bet on them against Boise State) but I think you may get good value as he won't go in the first round.

You better hope they don't make the playoffs if you want tice gone. I remember when PSU's hoops team went to the NCAA tournament and Jerry Dunn kept his job because of it and it totally buried our program that was just getting traction.

Seriously though, it may not be a bad thing to win the Reggie Bush/Gale Sayers lottery as that guy is awesome. Hopefully the Eagles can lose out.

Another week, another victory. I think it is time to realize we are unstoppable and Super Bowl bound. Detroit here we come. All we need is Dallas and Atlanta to lose a couple more games while we continue to win and we are in.

The Bears are a travesty, 80 yards passing and still win the game. Their best receiver is Nathan Vasher. And can everybody do me a favor and realize Michael Vick for the fraud he is???? He may be the most overhyped player in NFL history.

Re: Vikings fans UNITE - 12/05/05 04:46 PM

I couldn't agree with you more about Vick. Great wheels, but extremely overrated. They will never win with him at QB.
Hats off to the Vikes-who'd a thunk after the on and off field problems, they would win a bunch in a row with Brad Johnson at the helm? If nothing else, Mike Tice's job is saved.
My Giants took care of business yesterday, although it went down to the wire-the offense couldn't put it away and left it to the defense to win, but it counts.

Daunte's been begging to be traded for about a month. Someone who wants to leave isn't going to be putting their heart & soul into the team. Seriously, what are the odds that a guy that big would play at the same calibur with that injury?? He won't rehab with the team doctors (he's at home in FL) so the team doesn't know how the recovery is going. He tried to play the race card regarding the "Love Boat" incident and that got him nowhere fast and tried to pull a TO and ask for more $$. It's clear that Daunte & Ziggy don't see eye to eye.

There was a news report on the local news station last night that Randy Moss "stuff" still, by far, outsells Daunte's stuff

Plus, this way, Ziggy got out of paying his ridiculous bonus

What color is the sky in some of these player's worlds??

As a life long Vikings fan, all I can say is "Don't let the door hit you on the way out!"
Posted By: CB#3

Re: Look Who's Gone ... - 03/15/06 04:53 PM

Culpepper being gone will be good for the Vikings. Without a receiver with Moss's ability, Culpepper just turns the ball over via int or fumble.

All you have to do is look how Johnson performed with the same players. The only problem now is that the Vikings need to draft a younger QB for Johnson to mentor before he is gone.

That game yesterday was ugly...first shutout of Favre's career? What a crappy way to start the season...

I should reserve any comments before tonight, however.
The idea that the Vikes are opening on a nationally televised Monday night game kinda makes me nervous

What makes me nervous is that our QB is about 120 in football years

Don't worry. So long as he doesn't take a hit like Trent Green did yesterday, he'll be fine. Older QBs generally aren't a bad thing in the NFL.

PS: I sure hope Green can come back next week and isn't out for a significant time after that shot!

Did you read the article yesterday in the Trib? There are actually more QB's than one would think that have gone to the superbowl at (or almost at ) his age.
John Elway won two @ 37 and 38, for example...

Does anyone have any comments on Daunte's performance last week? I have to say he looked okay until, yet again, he threw two interceptions in the fourth quarter and threw away the game.
Some things never change...

Rather have Brad than Daunte any day of the week and 16 times on Sundays...

Don't mean to hijack...but...

Did I hear something about a "double-header" tonight on Monday Night Football!? Wooohoooo!
Posted By: MadisonCali

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 09/11/06 02:20 PM

Yep, two games in a row.
The Vikes are on at 6, I believe, and then I think it's the Raiders and the Chargers. Don't quote me on the second game...but I think I remember thinking that I get to see Randy Moss play after the Vikes...

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 09/12/06 01:32 PM

Can you believe it? We actually WON because of a missed field goal...that's sure not what usually happens!

Thought they played pretty solid the whole game through. The running game needs some work...I'm not sure how I feel about Chester Taylor yet. They certainly are giving him enough chances to prove himself!

This better be the last time Troy Williamson lets two passes slip through his fingers in one game...he's being given his chance, he needs to step up. I'll chalk it up to nerves and hop it doesn't happen next week...

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 09/12/06 02:20 PM

Man, Williamson ticked me off early. I needed him for my fantasy team!

But, Brad looked sharp.

Taylor looked very effective against a pretty good run defense.

Ooooh, you have Williamson for your fantasy team? That would've ticked me off last night, too.

Woo Hoo! Go Vikes!
It may not be pretty, but it's a 'W'!

The actually ran a trick play that worked...that's just pure craziness!

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 09/18/06 02:00 PM

2-0 is a great start especially since both victories were over supposed "playoff teams". Now if we can just handle our selves in the North and sweep the Packers and Lions that is 6 wins without even trying. Beware the blue-violet people eaters!!!
Posted By: MadisonCali

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 09/18/06 02:08 PM

Childress is the first coach for the Vikings to ever start out 2-0, including Bud Grant. I'm trying so hard to keep my hopes in check, but I'm so excited by what I'm seeing so far!

Now if they would just pay Brad Johnson what he's worth so that we can keep him around for another year or so to take Tarvarus under his wing...
Posted By: Princess Leia

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 09/18/06 02:32 PM

I - being a self proclaimed Vikings cynic - am thrilled about the start.

Although Childress is the first new coach to be 2-0, how many of those new coaches took over teams with a winning record?

Sorry, I just can't keep my cynicism in check

And, I can't get over how Childress looks EXACTLY like Mr. Noodle from Elmo's World
Posted By: XODUS

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 09/18/06 04:26 PM

well, let's not get carried away with the 2-0 start either, though they were good wins, it's not like the Vikes just came out and dominated the other teams.
Posted By: XODUS

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 10/09/06 09:06 PM

Rally around the violet blue people, this team has playoff potential. The defense is outstanding and Johnson does well not to lose us games.

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 10/24/06 02:05 PM

How 'bout them Vikes last Sunday? Huh?
Beating Seattle in front of the loudest crowd in the NFL...
WOO HOO!

Trick plays? Got'em!
Sacks? Got'em!
Defensive touchdowns? Got'em!

Go Vikes!!!!

Did you happen to see any of the Gophers / Bison game? We were in Fargo on Saturday at TGI Friday's watching the last half of that game. Good game but didn't dare cheer for the Gophers.

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 10/24/06 02:14 PM

hey, i looked at the schedule last night, the Vikes should be favored in all but maybe 2 games the rest of the way. And a 9-1 finish is not out of the realm of possibility to finish 13-3. Who would have thought???

Based on this reasoning, Iím going to start a thread about having nice smelling breath, an endless supply of beer, a wife who can cook and a dog that doesnít bite.

I just know this will all come true then.

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 10/30/06 09:54 PM

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 10/30/06 10:28 PM

After thinking this over I donít think a new thread would help with my dilemma.

Iíve come to realize four very important rules of the universe:

1.There is no amount of mouthwash in the world that will completely eliminate a combination of beef jerky, pork rinds and hard boiled eggs from oneís breath.

2.I canít find Blatz anywhere so my quest for an endless supply of beer will be cut short.

3.No matter how lovingly I try to help, the wife will never get the hang of even boiling water.

4.The dog is just plain evil.

Peeps...
Don't knock the wife for her inability to cook.
Perhaps it's just part of her master plan.
It's been mine for years.

And it's worked great, I might add.

I watched through the 3rd Qtr and felt like *I* had been hit by a Mack Truck (and I didn't get the license plate either)

I still like the Vikes! My brother and I had a rival going when I was younger. He always stood by his Team!
Posted By: MadisonCali

Re: Who likes the Vikes?? - 10/31/06 03:43 PM

Vikes fans are used to getting hit by a Mack Truck at least a couple times every season...yet we all stick around, year after year, truck after truck

My debit card is Vikings themed (my prior bank is one of their sponsors), and I actually got laughed at this morning while I was filling my gas tank.

Maybe it was the driver of last night's truck?
