Man the Vikings truly looked like **** tonight.

No excuse to not beat a team that lost half their team this offseason, idgaf if they were home.

Vikings looked like they weren't ready, at all.

The O and D lines were both terrible. Not going to win with those lines. Bridgewater's pocket presence was pretty good considering the pressure he was under. It's embarrassing that he can barely throw the ball 50 yards though. Barr is good. Rhodes is good. Wallace looked pretty good. That was obviously interference that wasn't called in the end zone. Adrian needs more carries.

Watched the game at Southdale DnB.. had to leave after the 3rd quarter :{. Game was not worth last nights 4 hours of sleep.

 

Team looked like straight *** bruhs.. Made SF look like an actual team and not a team that had the worst offseason of all time.

I have a lot of thoughts on the game, don't know if I really want to elaborate on them. I want to see the team in Week 2 to know if my assertions are premature or dead-on but just to throw these few things out there, why are people crediting the Vikings deficit as the game wore on for the reason Adrian Peterson didn't get the snaps and carries? Third-down blocking, right?

Okay, well why just four first-half carries? How does that go along with 'the narrative'?

The deficit wasn't big at all then during that period of time, and I actually think we hurt ourselves the more we tried to pass even when down due to how TERRIBLE the middle of the offensive line was throughout the entirety of the game. Joe Berger was terrible, Mike Harris was terrible, and then on the right side of the line, T.J. Clemmings. My god, what an atrocity against San Fran.

On one hand, you could say Mike Zimmer and Norv Turner didn't have any idea what the Niners, under Jim Tomsula, were going to look like, what they would throw at Minnesota.

1.) Tomsula is BRED on the defensive line. Of course they were going to overload the line that was decimated all of last year with pressure and bring Bridgewater to the ground as nearly every team did last year. Whether you can confidently plan your offense for that because you don't know for certain until you see that is one thing, but to totally look flummoxed by it all game was pretty disappointing and makes me think a lot lower of Norv Turner in general.

2.) For any argument you can make that you 'don't know what the Niners philosophy under Jim Tomsula will be' you could say, 'Well, the Niners didn't know what philosophy to expect with the Adrian Peterson element in the offense under Zimmer/Turner because nobody except the St. Louis Rams in one, measly game, had seen that before under this specific coaching staff. For how good of a career AP has had, Year 2 of Teddy Bridgewater had plenty of steam coming into it (don't get me started on that...)... so would we be passing to set up the run for a 30-year-old RB or running with a 30-year-old RB to set up the pass for our sophomore QB? I think there was a legitimate mystery to that question coming in, and apparently it didn't confuse Tomsula in the way Tomsula confused Zimmer and Norv.

Half of Peterson's carries went for one yard or less.
Zero of Peterson's carries were of double-digit yardage.
He played in just 64.3% of the team's snaps, when he's averaged between 70-75% for his career. A 5-10% dropoff is considerable.

Please don't come in here with any weak takes like 'Well maybe Minnesota's bringing Peterson on gradually and working him back into form...' DO THAT IN THE PRESEASON, because we had five games of that type to get him back into form when the results DON'T matter. So if that is the case - which I think it's not - get that done then. I don't care about keeping him fresh for the season when he comes out of the gate and runs for 3.1 yards per carry and can only manage to be a first- or second-down running back.

Anybody think a team that was as convinced as anybody they were headed for 10-6 grappling with the possibility of going 6-10?

They seem broken.

2012: 4th best FG percentage in league
2013: 19th
2014: 31st

This quote is nearly two months old.

There's no justification for "rewarding somebody" (Rick Spielman) after seeing two consecutive years of bottom-third of the NFL production - the most recent of those being the runner up for dead last.



Count me as somebody that doesn't give two ***** about 9th place in touchbacks when you're leaving the most points on the board of any kicker in the league woo hoo nooooobody cares man.

@christomasson: Mike Zimmer says he's undecided on whether Andrew Sendejo or Robert Blanton will start at strong safety for #Vikings on Sunday vs. Detroit.

There's two ways this could go terrible laugh.gif I'm just picturing Blanton and Sendejo going Conte/Meriweather on it all game while Golden Tate breaks off a 140-yard game.

There is no excuse for them still not having a decent strong safety, it's been years.

That's fine. Cary Williams is the other corner. We all know how good he is.

Lions fan grasping every last straw trying to criticize Rodgers.:lol

post #327 of 902
Lol I'm just saying, y'all guy was scared to throw it to a whole side of the field...and that was with Jordy. So we know Cobb will be a non factor...and I'll sure Seattle will take their chances with Cary Williams against Devante.

Not to mention yall won't be able to run it...The way I see it, prepare for a L fellas.
post #328 of 902
Jordy had five receptions for 71 yds in the NFC championship game and was targeted eight times. I'm not gonna go back and watch tape but let's just assume Sherman covered him on all eight targets, and if not, even if it was just 50% of those targets then Rodgers still threw the ball his way, enough to where Sherman was able to get an interception as well. I wouldn't say Rodgers was afraid to throw it to any side of the field.
post #329 of 902
I'm talking about Game 1 last year and that's all that matters...I didn't see the NFC championship game, I caught the very last seconds at a liquor store right when Russ ended it so I don't really know how many times he went at Sherm...but it's clear to see that he's scared of him.
