It's time for creativity in backfield like chester running in front of Adrian on sweeping plays right left.

You know a bright spot thruout all this is that these guys are not pointing fingers at each other(ie-T.O.) AND ARE TAKING BLAME. Winfield, McKinnie, Peterson, Bevell, have all shouldered resposibility and not shucked it off on others.

The viking's better get rolling or they'll set home. They can win it all but it takes a TOTAL TEAM EFFERT to win it all. No excuses just gut busting playing and hard nose hitting to do this, their is nothing free in the nfl if YOU WANT IT YOU GOT TO TAKE IT GO VIKING'S.

This line needs to get it together in a hurry or we are going to get embarrassed again and again. As a unit they have pretty much sucked the last 3 weeks!

Please forward to the o-line. They are playing like pansies. Where's the nasty attitude? McKinnie whines; Hutchinson has an owie; we win the SB if the o-line gets tough. Either be A 1500 lb lion or five 300 lb. cows.

Momentum starts with getting off your heels.

Seven man protections and still getting sacked? Maybe someone needs to return their game checks.

How could Bevell forget the run when the only drive they had in that game leaned heavily on the run to get it moving?

Adrian Peterson needs consecutive runs to start to get the feel of the game. A few isolated runs simply does not work well for him in my observation. I think their successful drives of the past year were often when they ran on 1st and 2nd, then threw on 3rd down. Yes I know throwing on 3rd down is to be avoided, but it frankly seemed to work better for this team in their better performances. At least early on in the game.

Win the Super Bowl? Be realistic.Klink has lost control and respect, but he does have that 5 MILLION PER YEAR EXTENSION. Way to go Ziggy.

The Super Bowl?...how about playing well Monday night! At this point, the Eagles, Saints, Cowboys, Packers, and Cardinals are far superior!

It's how they play in December that matters, and the Vikings are a mess!

i find it astounding that i believe i hate bevell more than klink.. that it itself is a wonder. yeah, fault mckinnie, he was TERRIBLE, however, when you have a guy having trouble, how about a little freakin' help.. where's the TE to chip in to help.. that's freakin' bevell's call, or klink's, at the worst. WHO wouldn't have trouble 1v1 on peppers, for crying out loud. help him with another body you freakin' idiots. this criticism is what let to the whole stupid favre coming out of the game at 7-6. there's your leader for you.. no answers, but ignorant solutions.

only klink can make adrian peterson look bad.

zig, you may be more stupid than klink.

one and done, you watch. nice job "coach".

If we aren't thinking SB, then why do we read this stuff? I have rooted for these clowns for 43 years! Even the Brooklyn Dodgers delivered the mail once. Da bums.

Ps. If Chilly is Klink, then Bevell is Sgt. Schultz. "I know nothing."

Even a blind man can see that the Vikings have great players
and bad coaching.......... The next five should be a hoot now
that we are handcuffed to Chilly for that long.

Anyone else notice that Tennessee runs Johnson out of the
spread formation. Funny........ all the other coaches have figured out that if you have a great running back, and you put in four wide outs, you can't put
eight and sometimes nine in the box........ Chilly the Clown knows better.

Winfield states he will use longer spikes on his cleats ....I wonder if "Klink" has the brains to realize that is what most likely be needed in Chicago Monday Night...

the vikings have lost that swager the day they started playing inside. no team wanted to play outside in minesota. bring back the snow and cold.AP Quit trying to cut back everytime u get the ball, and start working on your pass catching. com on guys u are so close to winning it all get it together.

I,m looking forward to another queen loss in chicago! Don,t worry, Favre will fall apart again and with any kind of luck philly will overtake the queeens. No first round bye and then on the road to a loss in philly. No superbowl again!

division champs 2 years in a row and a better record each season - cmon vikes fans you shouldnt be giving up hope so damn soon. you act as if it over and we have the, what, 4th best record in the NFL... vikes are a serious threat to any team at this point and everyone knows it. when the vikes are in gear there is no one to stop them and they will be puttin the beatdown on everyone in their way to that trophy. packers blow

If you win your division you get a home game. So if they end up with the third seed they still get a home game.
