"Couple of missed tackles here and there"????!!!! OK, Tyrell, can I have some of what you're smoking?

This is why this team is slumping. They actual think they are playing well! I didn't even know they were on the field against the Bears...THE FRICKIN BEARS!

Yeah, he played real well. Real solid. So much so the vikes should give him an outright release. Frickin bum.

Tyrell Johnson what planet are you on? The guy sounds like a bozo. Overly confident to compensate for his struggles, it's like he's trying to tell himself that he played well. Our safeties are somewhat suspect now, I miss Robert Griffith, an undrafted FA who stepped up and played bigger than he was. Banged around everyone pretty good. We need someone like him, not these softies.

kevin williams it not just you but most of the team not getting it done. If the other lineman were doing their job they would not be doubleing up on you. TIME WILL TELL IF THE VIKING'S WANT IT THEY'LL HAVE TO TAKE IT. GO VIKING'S.

oh no teams are defensing the vikings differently, so even if the defens stinks they have an excuse, they cant adjust

Well, all the talk about Leslie Frazier leaving to become a head coach should end now anyway.

Thats one of the problems - Kevin Williams and Johnson think they are playing okay. In another article JA can't beieve they lost - Ray Edwards has disappeared and never shows up. Any wonder why the D line play has not been as good. Vikes made a major mistake on the big contract for Madieu Williams and T Johson has not lived up to anyones expectations but his. Time to sit Johnson and play Sanford. Next season the whole defensive scheme needs to be looked at. Doesn't appear the Frasier will get e head job so we will be stuck with him another year. Of well - the first 10 games were fun.

If Kevin is getting double and triple teamed......... and J allen is getting double teamed,,,,,,, then Ray and Pat have no one to block them. What's the problem.
Seems like some of our players are better at talking, then playing , right now.

Cutler completes 20 balls downfield and Tyrell has no tackles and he thinks he played "real solid". I can't decide who is worse though, Madieu or Tyrell. They both play with shoulder pads made of rubber. K Williams is doubled, Allen is doubled, the opponents max-protect....you would think the opponent is playing with 13. Does anyone take responsibility on the D side besides Winfield? At least he is man enough to admit his play sucked. I see one person playing well week in week out....Greenway. That's it.

The sad part is we had a chance do something with
Favre here.......... But it looks like now that many have gotten pay raises ( Chilly, Mckinnie,
Winfield).... they are content with their fat wallets..

This spring Chilly will get rid of those who won't kiss his boots, and don't be supprised if they trade Petterson......... Then we can get back to runs of two, and three yards on first and second down. Followed by a two yard pass to Tahhee on third and five........ punt

The vikings problem is they have Elmer Fudd for a coach.
Can anyone remember the last time the Vikings did not
run Adrian on first play of the game?

Excuses. I guess all 4 defensive linemen were double teamed?

Even by acident, Kevin Williams should have had a couple tackles or assists, or QB hurries....nothing! He was dominated throughout the game. Jimmy Kennedy had around 6 tackles, Jared Allen had only one, and Ray Edwards one...looks to me that they need to pick up their game and stop talking like they are so wonderful.

What's with Tyrell Johnson's attitude....Jamarca Sanford would get 5 or 6 tackles per game and the receivers would be wary of going across the middle...yet Johnson plays????

The Tyrell Johnson-types on this team need to get control of their egos and "walk the walk" rather than "talk the talk"! It would be presumptuous perhaps to remind them that for the time being this is their "job". Perhaps that's too much for them to understand?

Tyrell were you on the field Monday night? The Bears couldn't find you. And then the Vikings pass up on Brandon Browner a 6'-3" SS/CB/Receiver with sprinters speed, a hard hitter and has great hands. Tyrell over this guy? Comeon man!

Come on, no issues with your performance and you don't get one single tackle? That is not a good game stat for anyone. Williams, don't the coaches show you how to handle a scheme? Are you the Pro Bowl player? Performance not excuses. Gruden is right, Step up big boy for we do need you to play well. Work through the scheme and make tackles and sacks. Weak havoc on the offense.

Johnson, when you miss tackles, that is NOT considered playing well. Not making any tackles in an entire game is NOT playing well. When you don't get one tackle in an entire game it would bode well to state that you could do better. How much do you get paid? Earn it.
