Minnesota Vikings earn a quality win at last

Maybe during those 72 hours holed up in a Philadelphia hotel before Tuesday night's game, the Vikings somehow returned to normalcy. Full Story

Nice job by Webb tonight. If he plays that well against the Lions next week, I'll be happy to see them NOT draft a QB in the 1st.

Joe from DePere sucks.

Webb is the QB of the future. Fraizer is our leader heading forward. Build the stadium, DYNASTY IN THE MAKING

Webb could indeed be the surprise that Tom Brady was in New England, which would be ironic considering they were both drafted in the same slot. Also interesting to note that Webb and Vick had the same 40 time out of college.

Hopefully he gets the start Sunday so we can see if he can be this poised two games in a row.

As for Fraiser, I hope he earned his shot.

I think if Favre is cleared he gets the nod..........he is the starter after all and it will be his last game ever..........this win was the one Frazier really needed as far as his audition goes. But I have mixed feelings..........like you said it would be nice to see if this guy can string two GOOD games back to back. But I also would like to see Favre one last time. GO VIKES.

"I'll be fine," Frazier said. "I just wanted our guys to be able to feel the feeling they have right now. They deserve it."

reason number one why frazier should be the head coach next year.

notice that our safetys looked much better back there and didn't give up any big plays against the biggest deep threat team in the NFL with sanford out there instead of williams? that guy is garbage.
i still maintain that we need to take the route that most quality franchises take and not rebuild this off season but recognize that S@#t happens and this was an unfortunate year in a lot of ways for us. but, we still have a good team with a solid core on both sides of the ball with most of them being in their prime. improve the offensive line, adjust a couple spots in the draft and free agency and try to find a serviceable QB that can get webb or a high draft pick a year to develop. tonight proved to me what i already knew, and that is we don't need a pro bowl QB to win games, we just need to play smart football, and not turn the ball over.
i look forward to watching our season finally and also to the 2011 season. i hope that frazier is our coach next year and we return the majority of our starters: sid, percy, shank, hutch, mckinnie (i know) loadholt, AD, JA, kevin W, Ray, EJ, greenway, Ced, antoine. the other five on each side of the ball i could go either way on.

I agree, but Loadholt? He stinks. So does McKinnie the pooh. As much as I want to see Favre play, I think Webb should be the one to start. Some key plays in the game were Webb being able to escape out of the pocket, and run one in. Favre is a sitting duck. Great guy, but he needs to drive off into the sunset.

It looked to me like Webb has a shot- he might be the real deal. He seems to have "it", which is something you cannot say about every quarterback the Vikes have used in the last few years. Last night was what happens when one team has nothing to prove and the other has nothing to lose.

Good game and one I felt good watching. Still would have liked to see the HOFer reach 300 starts, but I guess we're "past that," too. Brings up a couple conundrums: 1) What will become of Leslie Frazier? and, 2) Have we found our future QB? I'm sure the debate will begin in earnest soon, if it hasn't already. I'm still not sold on either as a lock... but last night showed some promise if this is what we get. Now, on to a NEW STADIUM!!!!

For an almost last place team to beat a playoff team.... Hmmm ... I smell a rat... Oh yea a little collusion maybe… Money talks. Everything about the Vikes says Soap Opera…. What sells best in the NFL… Drama and boy can the Vikings play that card. Just look at the past year. Will Brett play???? Moss in purple never? Then there is Farvegate, or danglegate if it suits you. Then the Humpty Dumpty Dome crashing down. Now Tuesday Night Football.. Come on this is like a scene from “All My Children”. Hey if they can just get a new stadium…… just watch next week on “As the Stomach turns”

Very impressive performances all over the field but particularly by the rookie QB in his first start. What a thrill for him to best Vick on his home field. Great post game demeanor too. That scoring run was eye opening, the way he juked the last 2 defenders. Both QBs were very mobile and they impacted the game by escaping sure sacks of someone like Favre.

Keeping Frazier is a no brainer, the player/coach chemistry is impressive. Remember the distance between Chilly and the rest of the team for so long, it never fully went away. Yes there was a schism but it was between him and the players.

Lets not get delusional and think that Joe Webb won this game. The defense had it's best game of the year, The offensive line actually gave our QB time to throw the ball, Adrian Peterson had 120 yards rushing and the secondary actually made plays. Joe did a nice job but had very little pressure and did not see a number of open receivers. He also threw a few errant passes as would be expected. His line was 195 yards and 1 TD run and no passing TD's. This is hardly impressive enough to annoint him the QB of the future. Lets see how he plays when the O line sucks and Peterson gets 20 yards and the D can't stop anyone.
That will be the true test. That being said good job Joe. Be glad all parts of the Vikings were clicking last night. Nice win.

Maybe the Eagles looked that way because the Vikings had developed the perfect game plan against them. On defense, don't give Vick time to study the field, force him to move around and not set up, hit him everytime he drops back. On offense simplify the game plan, get rid of the ball quickly taking away their pass rush, good mix of run vs. pass, let AP loose.

But it did instill hope. Maybe Webb will make me eat my words and be our QB of the future, maybe Fraizer does know how to get this team up, maybe we aren't missing as many pieces as I thought. One game does not answer all these question but it does give me hope that they are answered.

I don't agree with your assessment of the offensive line. I still think they had a horrible pass protection game. The only reason they looked better was because Webb is more elusive than Favre. McKinney was still having problems with speed rushers, Loadholdt, crap I don't know what his problem is, and Cook still had a couple of high shot gun snaps.

I agree though with your assessment of Webb. While last night filled me with hope that he is the answer I don't think we'll know until next season when teams have more film on him to study and can better game plan. I will say this he looked more comfortable under center than T-jack ever looked.

Good game for webb, But I knew this would happen, One good game and he is the savior. Lets see what he does in Detroit first before you give him the key to the city.
