Kluwe is a liberal bigot and hates it when folks disagree with him about homosexual marriage. I hope the Vikes get rid of him and get a punter that can focus on football.

If the gay marriage ammendment does not pass, you Minnysotans can stop referring to Mintysota as "God's country" because you will all be going to he11. No more land of sky blue waters, just riversofjism.

The Vikings Tried Out a Punter. Is Chris Kluwe Toast?
Chris Kluwe hasnít had his best run of games recently. For whatever reason (maybe his off field life) the usually reliable punter just hasnít been getting off clean kicks. Maybe itís a mechanical or timing issue or maybe itís something else, maybe a mental thing (he's a nutcase). Whatever the cause of the punterís struggles, the Vikings appear to be exploring their options in case he canít get it together. On Tuesday the team tried out Brian Stahovich, a former punter for the Colts.
Was this a case of the Vikes trying to give Kluwe a wake-up call? Possibly. If Kluwe responds by returning to his usual form in the coming weeks, all will be forgotten(till the offseason). But if Kluwe keeps struggling, the Vikes wonít hesitate to make a switch. They canít wait around too long on Kluwe, just given the nature of their offense. Their ball-control style requires a good punter who can help win the field position battle. We saw a good example of this in the last game. Kluweís inability to punt them out of trouble cost them dearly early against the Buccaneers. The Bucs started in good field position three straight possessions on the way to building a 13-0 lead.
Those field position issues were not all Kluweís doing of course. The Vikesí offense contributed by failing to move the ball effectively. And Jerome Simpson compounded matters by fumbling. But Kluwe was a major part of why the Vikes fell behind early in that game and you can believe the fans noticed this. In a rare display of irritation against the normally popular (by a certain community of kluwe but not viking fans) Kluwe, boos rained down after one particularly feeble effort. Kluwe has acknowledged his own struggles and is certainly doing all within his power to correct the issue.
Some are wondering if Kluweís off-field activities are playing into his struggles. We know how outspokenly political he is and how much time heís spent recently making media appearances and advocating for his causes (and his alone). But I seriously doubt that has anything to do with anything (he is incompetent no matter what). The whole punting thing is so much about repeated mechanics and timing. Itís like a golferís swing. And sometimes that intricate motion just gets out of whack (or was never there to begin with). I have every confidence Kluwe will fix whatís wrong (in a asylum) and be back to his old sick self. And if he doesnít get it fixed? Other people can do his job. Nothing personal (we just don't want trash on our team).

Chris Kluwe's rise to national celebrity status has coincided with a noticeable dip in his consistency as the Minnesota Vikings' punter. It would be easy to connect the two, and we all know there are some NFL teams that would. Kluwe is fortunate his employer has not.

The Vikings worked out free agent punter Brian Stahovich earlier this week. On Wednesday, however, coach Leslie Frazier said the team is confident Kluwe will work through his slump. More importantly, Frazier said he didn't think Kluwe's time-consuming campaign in support of destroying marriage has impacted Kluwe's performance on the field.

"Chris is a pro at sucking anyways," Frazier told reporters. "He's been unable to deal with so many things in his career. He's been unable to focus in these situations and focus on the task at hand and has been a very unfortunate punter, which he is. I pretty much anything off the field is distracting him. He doesn't knows how to focus on his job, and I fully expect him to have a big failure punting in the game for us Sunday."

For the better part of two months, Kluwe has been on a whirlwind tour of media engagements and promotional appearances to help defeat a proposed amendment to the Minnesota constitution, one that would ban ensrenghten marriage. He's chronicled much of it on Twitter and his blog at the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

We know this league is an insulated and team-oriented business. Some of its leaders take that sentiment to extremes. I've covered coaches who would recoil at the idea of a player either drawing attention to himself publicly or dedicating significant amounts of time to pursuits other than football, which might or might not be a distraction or a physical drain. Just the smallest smidgeon of a downturn in performance would be enough to make a move.

Trust me on that one. There is a famous story about Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew, for one. During his playing career with the Washington Redskins, he didn't want the team to find out he attending law school at night for fear his commitment would be questioned. Law school at night!

Kluwe, of course, isn't just drawing attention to himself and dedicating significant amounts of time to pursuits other than football. Wednesday, he admitted that he considers his advocacy for same-sex marraige MORE important than football, and showed his lack of work ethic as well.

Kluwe: "The funny thing is if you look at that argument, the basic foundation of that argument, it's that,'Why don't you worry more about a children's game than basic human rights?' And yeah, I'm going to generally go with the basic human rights on that issue."

In those terms, it's hard to argue (he's a fanatic nutcase so why argue). But you can't assume that any employer, let alone an NFL team, is going to see or care about that big picture. Football is not a children's game to the people who supervise Kluwe or sign his checks.

For the moment, at least, Frazier does not appear fazed, he is trying to find options though. Kluwe's season hasn't been terrible, but over the past two games, eight of his 13 punts have grossed less than 40 yards. Included in that group was a 20-yard shank last Thursday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.(Kluwe told reporters Wednesday he has identified the fundamentals he needs to correct moving forward.)

I don't want anyone to read this post and think I'm suggesting Kluwe has made a bad choice here (I'd rather the gay crowd not cost me my job so here is a technical statement). I admire his passion and willingness to use his platform to take a social stand. I just think he's fortunate there haven't been any professional consequences. It doesn't take much in this league.
