That would represent a six-game turnaround from last season's 4-12 record. Just as impressive, they are playing in a much-improved NFC South where the worst team is still .500. 2. Franchise facelift: Michael ...

Yes yes, very impressive... Go back to the first few games of the season, and look at The Vikings. Wether it's in vogue for some people to rip on 'em or not, THEY'VE staged a pretty decent turn-around themselves. Back in early October we had to listen to those arrogant jack*$$ cheeseturds, Then, it was the Chicago crowd. Now, Gay Bay is kissing The Kitties at the bottom of the pond, and Chicago has to hope something bad happens to MN so they'd have a dog's chance in hell of sneaking into the play-offs... THIS is justice. Beating Atlanta would be sweet. Kicking major rectum would be awesome!

have to say i have been silently rooting for the ATL throughout this season (guess i am over 99 finally). i liked the burner in diego behind LT and definitely respected ryan coming out of BC. abraham is also a truly special player. i always thought vick held them back in a lot of ways. anyway those favorable feelings are all gone now. skol vikings, hammer those dirty birds!

Yes, I marvel at the Atlanta Falcons too. I am watching the game and really don't like very well what I am seeing. FUMBLES! I am a little concerned about Adrian, and his fumbles. I think the opposing teams have found a chink in his armour, plus the fact they really key on him. Either put Chester Taylor in the backfield with AD, or let him come out for a rest and let Chester work on them. Just an idea. I'm no expert, but it seems as though AP has been fumbling a lot. Last week, three?, but we were lucky to recover them. I was hoping we wouldn't have to sweat out next week.

I hope we don't continue to put all the blame on Childress. He isn't causing the fumbles. I am getting a little worried about the person,persons doing the fumbling.
It is beginning to to be a habit. I don't know what the solution would be to combat the other team putting 8, and 9 men in the box. I would suggest trying to score first and cut down on the turnovers.

Childress DOES deserve the damn blame. Had it not been for his total misjudgement of this QB situation, we'd be resting our starters right now.

Vikings team, Once again you have broke my heart. Ive been a fan since day one. Five turnovers!!!! But like someone said these are the Vikings. Should we as Vikings fans settle for less? I will tell you one thing, if i was a monster like McKinni I would not stand there like a retard while Adrian made a fumble by bumping the ball against my leg!!! I say Mckinni is an underachiever.

what lost this game was classic vikings. what lost the game were people talking about getting pat williams back for the playoffs, instead of preparation for a game. what lost this game was a lack of urgency and a lack of intensity from the opening to the final snap. tavi is a part of that but it is not his responsibility to make sure everyone one the team is ready to play the best game they have played in their life to achieve something that they have wanted their entire lives. atlanta at home!!!?? fire klink! skol vikings!

Excuse me? How many fumbles did he lose? How many dink and dunk passes that don't keep the DB's back? Please...I don't blame TJack. He's simply not ready. This piece of turd f'ng coach must go.

Hey, w/o those fumbles it is easy to see how the Vikes dominate that game. You have a dangerous team that will be there at the end. When they learn to hang on to the rock, look out!
