Vikings Hold 3 Point Lead At Half

Posted by cjsiewert on October 24, 2010 – 8:17 pm

In a back-and-forth battle between 2 NFC North divisional foes, the Vikings entered the locker room at half time with a 17-14 lead over the Green Bay Packers.

 

Vikings WR and KR Percy Harvin has continued to solidify his standing as one of the most versatile players in the league with a 48-yard kick return and a 17-yard TD run. Harvin has 41 yards rushing and 81 yards returning kickoffs for 109 all-purpose yards.

 

In his 2nd game at Lambeau Field as a visitor, Vikings QB Brett Favre has completed 6 of 11 passes for 70 yards. Adrian Peterson has establish the rushing attack with 14 carries for 68 yards and a TD.

 

The Vikings defense came up big in the 1st half with 2 INTs deep in their own territory. DE Jared Allen picked off Packers QB Aaron Rodgers at the 18 and S Madieu Williams came down with another Rodgers INT in the Vikings endzone. On the Williams INT, CB Frank Walker covered Packers WR Greg Jennings down the right sideline and the bobbled pass ended up in the arms of Williams for a touchback.

    As much as I hate to say it , sit him down. He is totally out of it. We are not using AP the right way, we have no continuity. Time for a change of pace. Zigi call Cower Gruden Dungy Billick.

    We cant stop the run or defend the pass. Jared must be p*$$y whipped. They will give Rodgers a 1st. Chilly reminds me of Mr Wiffle, Wimple, you know, the guy on the toilet paper commercials. Turn out the light s the party is over.

    How do I sell my season tickets? Not interested in watching a coach who does nto want to win. Unbelievable.

    Why didn’t Brad throw the change flag on packer TD? It would have been reversed. Brad needs to be fired!! We have the talent to win just not the coaching.

    Well within scoring range, in the middle of a great drive, Childress-the-Incompetent just walks off the field??? Despite the problems in the second half, had Captain Stupid allowed the team to stay on the field, we would have gone into the half 21-14. Instead, s*** for brains lets the clock run out, and ultimately gives away the game by forfeiting an easy touchdown that would have made the difference in the end. When are they going to fire this guy?

    I’m replying well after the game is over. Some signs of hope, but some issues remain that have haunted this team.

    I only saw the fourth quarter, but, if the Vikings went all the way to Mississippi to get Favre, why don’t three of four Vikes by a one way ticket home for Bernard Berrian? He does little if anything to help this team. He was brought in to be a deep threat, he’s highly paid. With him playing up to expectations with Harvin being his consistent self, no way could you also match up with Moss. No way could you bring extras in to stop A.P. on the run.

    Chris Collinsworth always seems to hate Moss. Maybe it’s because he couldn’t carry Moss’s jock strap. It had to hurt for him to have to compliment Moss for his block that sprung A.P. in the 4th quarter. In fairness, Moss and Favre are still not totally in sync to what the other is expecting.

    Offensive line seemed to do a better job of both run and pass blocking, which will hopefully give Favre more confidence to look to stretch the field. Even though Loadholt’s penalty at the end really hurt. At 2 and 4, are they capable of winning 8 out of their final 10? Definitely. But not until they show consistency and accountability. Adrian Peterson is greatly improved from past years, but if we’re behind every game in the 4th quarter it limits his touches.

    I think Les Steckel could help this team…..

    The effort was there by everyone till the very end, except Childress…He gave up before halftime with the lead and time outs left. Who does that? A field goal there would have won us the game, because we could have kicked another at the end of regulation. He’s done this before too. It’s time for Brad to go!!!

  32. By MTVike on Oct 24, 2010 | Reply

    That’s Brad Childress football. He’s done it before and He’ll do it again. A three point lead with a half game to go, and you run out the clock?

    Why is Childress so scared of getting a good lead. He forces every game to be close. How ironic, Moss wants to play, and Childress walks off the field.

    I am so sick of hearing people talk about how Favre messed up the game. I am totally down with this writer. I was so upset (and so was Moss from his response on the field) at Childress when he quit the final play with 8 seconds in the half. Not 2 or 3 seconds, but 8 seconds to play. They could have gone for a huge play that took them ahead on the score board and that time utilized properly could have been a game changer. Childress, you have no room to talk about handing the ball to the other team with #4’s interceptions. Look at your own mistakes buddy. Next time, play the clock out before you call it quits and head for the locker room.

    the nfl and its cronnie refs can dictate the out come of a game it should’ve been 21 -10 at half no way that shiancoe td should have been turned over on a dumb explanation he controlled that ball through out the play also cildress should have thrown the red flag on the quarless td just because it was so close to the end line
