Zim Tzu didn’t lose he just attacked in a different direction

The Vikings warrior poet coach dispenses his words of wisdom

When a warrior poet heads out on the field of battle, he expects to win. But even the best of them fail, and come up short. When that happens, you retire, lick your wounds, and come out the next time, hungrier and more determined to win than ever.

But a stalemate...no one really expects those. A stalemate makes you feel like it was all for nothing. There was no glory in victory, there were no heroic last stands to the last man, no...

Tuesday Open Thread: September 18, 2018

A kicker is cut, I assume knowing that one of the league’s best kickers is a free agent made that decision a little easier.

Merry Tuesday, everyone!

I’m guessing the kicker moves the team made yesterday helped soothe the sting of that missed kick on Sunday. I was glad the team made the move. Normally, you like to wait until after anger has subsided before making big decisions, but when a significant upgrade is available, and it doesn’t cost you a lot to cut the current guy, you make...

The Vikings’ fourth quarter offense was mighty efficient on Sunday

Given how little they actually had the ball in the final stanza

In Sunday’s tie against the Green Bay Packers, the Minnesota Vikings put together a pretty damned impressive fourth quarter, putting up 22 points in the final fifteen minutes of play. What could make it even more impressive?

How about the fact that their time of possession in that final quarter tallied less than two and a half minutes of game time?

Yes, in their 22-point fourth quarter comeback, the Vikings had the football...

NFL doubles down on stance that Clay Matthews hit was a penalty

Clay Matthews’ hit on Kirk Cousins during Sunday’s Minnesota Vikings-Green Bay Packers game has predictably become the biggest talking point of the week, and the NFL is not backing off the call. In fact, they are doubling down on the stance that the hit was a penalty.The NFL made changes to the roughing the passer rule over the offseason, potentially as a response to Aaron Rodgers’ broken collarbone suffered last year on a hit from Minnesota’s Anthony Barr. The new rule seeks...

Good evening

Welcome Aboard! I hope you had a great day at work and enjoyed the Vikings win loss tie yesterday over the Packers. Hawt Taek Monday is always a lot more fun when the Vikings win, unfortunately it was a tie and very unsatisfying on many levels. I’m going to continue posting a Sunday or Monday game thread (Thursday when those games start) if it’s a NFC North team or common opponent, or basically if I feel like it. I don’t know who you’ll...

Jerry Jones spoke to his radio show on why he had to let Bailey go

Vikings at Packers: Five Game-Changing Plays

Looking back at the most important plays from the wild 29-29 tie at Lambeau Field.

Well, that was certainly...something.

The Week 2 game between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers had just about everything. All three phrases on both sides of the ball had a roller coaster ride on Sunday afternoon. There were blocked kicks, missed kicks, terrible penalties, missed penalties, amazing passes, awful drops, incredible catches, and crushing heartbreaks for fans of both teams. There were...

Vikings: Studs and duds against the Packers

Although the result was a tie, there were some positives and negatives throughout the game.

That Vikings, Packers game was filled with so many emotions from start to finish. There were times during that game when I didn’t even know how to feel. I was in disbelief at times and at others I thought I needed to borrow my grandma’s oxygen tank.

A tie is a tie. People will say it’s better than a loss, but when it’s to one of the team’s most hated rivals, it might as well be a loss....

Report: Minnesota Vikings waive K Daniel Carlson, will sign Dan Bailey

The rookie kicker missed three field goals yesterday

Let’s recall why we have the new rule on tackling quarterbacks

From BS, more BS will flow

In the wake of Sunday’s 29-29 tie between the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, one of the primary sticking points seems to be the hit that was put on Vikings’ quarterback Kirk Cousins by Packers’ linebacker Clay Matthews. The hit negated what would have been a game-sealing interception by rookie Jaire Alexander and gave the Vikings the opportunity to march down the field to, ultimately, tie the game.

Salary Cap implications for Laquon Treadwell and Daniel Carlson

A lot of fans would like to see Carlson and Treadwell walk the plank. Is it even financially viable?

After the Minnesota Vikings tied the Green Bay Packers 29-29 yesterday, a lot of the post game frustrations were taken out on two players, for the most part: K Daniel Carlson and WR Laquon Treadwell.

Carlson missed three field goals, including two in overtime, and the last one was practically a chip shot from 35 yards that would have capped an improbable comeback win.
