QB an Coach Equal Losing

Here it is right here, look at Roger's QB rating:
In seven games, he has completed 65.6 percent of his passes for 1,668 yards and 12 touchdowns with only four interceptions. His passer rating is 98.8.
Now if we had a decent QB and an NFL Caliber Coach, the team would be doing
considerably better.
I rest my case,

Peterson should actually go hard like he did last year. He doesn't seem to have that explosion through the line. Almost too patient at times? Also, Ryan Cook stinks. Why didn't they take Hicks and move him over there. Cook has 90% of our penalties. I really honestly can't understand why this team is so bad. Defense hasn't improved one bit. Leslie "the girl" needs to be more aggressive and less predictable. Quit playing to not lose. Hint: SEE STEELERS, EAGLES, RAVENS. Aggressive defense. If you look at the numbers, the offense has gotten a bit better and the defense has gotten a bit better. Yet, same old story. Must be the coaching/play calling/philosophy.

Father time mhas caught birk, the guys on the right side never were, McKinnie is overhyped and Hutch is simply not playing well.

Yeah, Ryan Cook does stink! He couldn't block a six year old; he's clueless. He just might be Klink's long-lost kid. As the old saying goes, "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree"...Go Vikes!!!

fans bought some of the tix...'cco bought the rest, so it wasn't the fan support. if fans had their way, i'm guessing there would be no queens on 4 today. probably the only way wilf will get the message that his coach isn't doing the job
bad team

they aren't very good at all. an average team rolled up 350 in the air at the dome. we won't make the playoffs.

After watching the Cowboys play last night I know we have the best line. If Gus could move around faster then he might not be sacked as much T-Jack was taking the hits when he left the pocket. I do like the way Gus has used his arm and for the first time this year he throw a pick that was not all his fault. Berrian is paying off week after week and if Peterson keeps those 100's flowing in week in and week out I have to say we could when the North. This week the Packers at home. I would like to see a blow out but after watching the way the Pack handled a team that lets face it handled us I can only hope for a W. Vikes 21 Pukers 17 GO VIKINGS!!!!!
