Vikings Take 17-0 Lead Over Tampa Bay Into Locker Room At Halftime

Posted by Mike Wobschall on September 18, 2011 – 12:29 pm

The Vikings came out in their first home game of the 2011 regular season in great form, building a 17-0 lead by halftime thanks to solid performances from all three phases.

On offense, RB Adrian Peterson led the way with 83 yards and 2 TDs on 15 carries. QB Donovan McNabb looks much improved from his debut performance and is 11 of 17 for 153 yards. McNabb’s leading receiver is Percy Harvin, who has 4 receptions for 48 yards. But 2nd-year RB Toby Gerhart is also making his presence felt, picking up 36 rushing yards on 2 carries and also salvaging the team’s second TD-scoring drive by executing a screen pass to the tune of 42 yards.

Peterson’s first TD of the day came late in the 1st quarter to give the Vikings a 7-0 lead. That score made him the new record hold for career rushing TDs in Vikings franchise history. Peterson tacked on another rushing TD in the 2nd quarter and now he has 54 for his career.

The defense was dominant and yielded just 62 total yards and only 3 first downs. DE Jared Allen tallied a sack on the game’s first series and DE Everson Griffen also got to Freeman to register a sack. S Jamarca Sanford has a pair of tackles for a loss and both S Husain Abdullah and CB Antoine Winfield have made multiple open-field tackles to bring Buccaneers ball-carriers to a halt.

On special teams, K Ryan Longwell is 1 for 1 on FGs and a perfect 2 of 2 on PATs. Kick coverage teams have been solid and P Chris Kluwe landed a punt inside the 10-yardline again.

The Vikings will begin the 2nd half with the ball and have a great opportunity to take a commanding lead.

    What is this team doing at halftime!! I’ve never seen a team look so unprepared and not ready to play than the Vikings have in the first two weeks!! Get it together!!!

    You know there going to blitz on 3rd down and goal!! Leave your running back in to cover the blitz!! This game should be a blowout but we always seem to leave teams in the game and not put them away!!!!

    Yes another loss, this team stinks no other way to put it. How can you play so good for one half and not even show up in the second hald. Either side of the ball. Oh and another great play. Someone needs to tell this team there are 60 minutes to a game not 30.

    once again offense only scores 3 points in second half and the defense can’t make stops when needed. We suck 0-2 and will be 0-3 next week.

    I’ve been CRYING for the Vikings defensive line to get there hands up.

    That 15 yard roughing the passer penalty against Jared Allen? If he had gotten his hands up he could have thwarted the pass attempt.

    Then the next play he puts his hands up when he was 10 yards away from the quarterback !

    i dont blame the coaching staff for nothing. the players simply didnt play. with your few exceptions in jared allen ap greenway and percy and winfield but it takes more than just 5 all pros to win a game need everyone else to show up for every snap not just when they feel like playing.for some reason the rest of the team just lets up. its sad but isnt this also the old cliche with this franchise get everyones spirits up only to shatter them. its like we are all problem gamblers. yuh sure we may win 6k in a night at the tables but well also walk out before the nights over with our keys turned over to the casino wondering how to get home now…

    Them and the coaches said hey 17 points is enough. We do not need to play in the scond half. Let’s just gon thtu the motions and hopepfully the clock will run out before we lose. What a joke. The OL is still a big issue, the DB’s are absolutely awful and the coaching staff needs to go and start over by coaching high school. No ability to caoch and no ability to pay a full 60 minutes. Also a new category to get in the pro bowl. How well do you play in the first half? The vikings would have all the spots filled. This team is the laughing stock of the NFL. On the record 0-3 and by the bye week they may win 1.

    Unbelievably pathetic performance in the second half. Vikes need to look at the game film of the Bucs in the second half and watch how to be a winner. Vikes looked confused and out of sorts the whole second half. Lots of talent and ability but absolutely no killer instinct when it comes to stepping on your opponents throats.

    What can you say. Pathetic!!!!!!!!!!! The game dosen’t end @ half time. Thats two weeks in a row. But this was worse. They actually had offense and defense working in the first half of this game. The week before was like watching pee wee football. Its a good thing they signed AP to that new contract because he sure wouldn’t want to be here next year with where this team is heading. Now we have the Lions coming to the Dome. Looks like 0-3 and another long season.

    Man, that was painful. I can only thank God that I didn’t get a chance to see the whole melt down because I had to watch on NFL Redzone. When I saw that pass attempt to Aromashodu (about 12 seconds left in the game) I almost got excited. Then I remembered that brittle Rice wasn’t on the team anymore. Well, If the Vikes can play a second half next week I’m confident they can beat Detroit.

    And Old School, if you are one of the fair weather fans from last week (like I suspect you are) why would anyone bother to apologize to you, let alone care what you have to say?

    Anyway, back to the game: from what was shown by NFL Redzone, the Vikes WR corps just isn’t cutting it. Harvin really needs a big side kick. Thankfully there are some great freaks at receiver in this upcoming draft class. ^_^

    You really think the Vikings are going to draft Luck next year? They just invested a first round pick in Ponder….no chance. They’ll trade down for sure

    Here is what needs to happen. First, don’t leave the field during halftime. DO not go into any locker room during halftime. Stay on the field, focused on the game. Bring in a motivational speaker to talk to the team.

    Secondly, remove McNabb as quarterback and bring in Ponder OR Webb to build for the FUTURE. Also, it wouldn’t hurt for the coach to have some kind of expression on his face. I have heard of a poker face but come on… same look whether up by 17 or getting WHUPPED on. This team needs leadership.

    Let me Explain this :)

    1) either the Tampa Bay Bucks decided to give the Vikings a 17 point lead at half so that they could come out and grab there hips and say “Who IS YOUR DADDY!”

    or

    2) the Vikings Coaching staff and team decided to intentionally lose this game in order to emotionally have fun with the fans.

    NO EXCUSES they went in at half time and decided to lose Period.

    The worst thing about having to watch these cowards for the next 14 weeks is that we can not get excited about getting luck in the draft possibly because spielmans ego will want ponder to be the guy no matter how pathetic we are. Let me guess rick, another TE for jill musgraves high power offense. We are doomed on and off the field.

    Ho-hum another loss for the hornless Vikings. I see a lot of comments on the Vikings moving to LA, won’t help them, they will still be losers with the same old team and loser coaches and players. Play Ponder or Webb, cannot get any worse than 0-2 anyway. Other teams such as the Jets did it with Mark Sanchez and look at the now, they are winning. I live in Georgia and I cannot get their games, good in a way because I couldn’t watching them lose.

I’m not saying the Vikings are going to make the playoffs, but I’m sure teams have started 0-2 before and have gone to the playoffs. Haha, how I see it; Week 1 – Horrible offense, great defense, lose in second half. Week 2 – Alright Offense, Alright Defense, lose in second half. Maybe by next week things will even out and we will be a moderate team who plays the same for an entire game. Who knows

    It would take Frazier a year to learn to play checkers. Both games completely out coached in 2nd half. San Diego and T.B. made significant adjustments to shut us down at half. Our adjustments are to give Peterson less carries and throw more. WHEN HE WAS ROLLIN’ THEM IN THE FIRST HALF!!! UN-F-IN REAL.

    This site has blocked my previous attempts to post I think because I said I want a coach who has some B#$@!!!!! like Belichick or Tomlin. I been a fan over 40 yrs and every since the Dennis Green era, our team has no killer instinct. We have blown ome of the biggest leads ever over the last 15 years. As soon as we get a lead, we go into prevent defense and caution offense, instead of doing the same thing we have did in the first have to get the lead. Who cares about sportsmanship and running up the score. These are professional atheletes being paid millions so I don’t care if someones feelings get hurt. Wake up ownership and stop hiring these wimpy coaches.

    Been a Vikings fan for almost 30 years, and this loss has to rank among the hardest to swallow (98 NFC championship game was horrible). McNabb may have looked better than he did last week, but that isn’t very hard – a random high school QB would have looked better than McNabb did in week 1.
    My question is – when pressure is obvious (overload blitzes, 3rd downs in the red zone etc.) where is the quick slant? Farve made a living off that one route in his years at GB – and when thrown properly it is almost impossible to defend. Oh wait – we need more than Percy in the WR corp to be able to pass effectivly.

    To those in the front office:

    Eat some crow – cut that waste of almost $2 mil (Berrian) and go get someone who can CONSISTENTLY win the 1-1 battles on the outside. Berrian NEVER was a viable receiver, why else would the Bears cut the guy. Can Aromashadu as well! The Bears didn’t resign him this year and their WR corp was abysmal last year, should give you a hint on the quality of this guy. The lone bright spots in our WR corps this year have been Percy and Jenkins. Need to get a viable #1 receiver to draw double teams and run off safties/CBs. Wonder if there is anyone availble that can do that …….
