Vikings Arrive At Georgia Dome For Battle With Falcons

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 27, 2011 – 9:38 am

The Vikings have arrived at the Georgia Dome in downtown Atlanta for today’s battle against the Falcons. This has been a difficult place for visiting teams of late, as the Falcons have won 16 of their last 21 regular season games in this building.

Kickoff is slated for noon CT, but vikings.com will be here until then providing pre-game updates and thoughts. We’ll have the Vikings inactives for you 90 minutes before kickoff. We’ll also be chatting live with fans during the game, so be sure to join us right around kickoff for that.

After the game we’ll stream all Vikings press conferences live on vikings.com, so be sure to stick around for that.

In the meantime, be sure to check out a few videos that are currently up on the site.

– Earlier this morning, we caught up with Vikings legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton. He visited the team hotel and took time out of his schedule to chat with us about Christian Ponder, the stadium situation in Minnesota, Leslie Frazier and his business ventures.

– Just after arriving at the team hotel yesterday, Kevin Williams joined us to talk about his game last week and what he’s expecting this week from the Falcons.

– Voice of the Vikings Radio Network Paul Allen and I discussed a few keys to today’s game.

    For those of you who remember Joe Kapp’s days with the Vikings, it seems that he hasn’t lost his feisty attitude…..From today’s Canadian Press….VANCOUVER – There was some early unnecessary roughness at the Grey Cup weekend in Vancouver.
    According to various reports, former B.C. Lions quarterback Joe Kapp and 74-year-old ex-Hamilton Ticats defensive lineman Angelo Mosca got into a physical altercation Friday afternoon at a CFL alumni luncheon.
    The confrontation reportedly began after a highlight clip was shown from the 1963 Grey Cup, a game where Mosca drilled Lions running back Willie Fleming in what many considered a controversial late hit.
    Fleming was forced from the game and Hamilton won the championship.
    The altercation on Friday started after the clip when Kapp, 73, offered Mosca flowers as a symbolic peace offering. The sentiment was refused by Mosca and punches were reportedly thrown.
    According to witnesses, Mosca used his walking cane to ward off Kapp’s punches.
    Mosca’s post-football career included involvement in the World Wrestling Federation…….I say sign Joe up !

    Mike W…In your interview with Fran, Not one word spoken about what will be done with Joe Webb, I truly believe he is just as good a Quarterback as Ponder…

    Yes, Ponder is good, but so is Webb!! Frazier and crowd will just dump him same as a number of other good Viking players…

    Good to know Fran Tarkenton has been watching our rookie QB Ponder. Lots of great things to say about him and that gives us more hope for the future!

    Famous last words, Titus………I have heard this before.
    On another note, why not get Webb involved somehow? He is fast and has a good vertical jump…….WR DB something…..

    We could have won with some REAL COACHING……..

  34. By vikings4seven on Nov 27, 2011 | Reply

    The entire patriots or packers coaching staff could not get this bunch motivated. Our coaching sucks but at some point you have to realize there is very little talent on this team. And the front office owns that. This team is in real trouble and is getting worse by the week. The O-LINE and SECONDARY are not progressing. This is a business and if the guys we all like personally are terrible on the field they need to go. PERIOD. FRAZIER is a terrible fit for this team. We need experience and attitude in leadership here.

    Teams that are playing close to us are playing bad games. We are not forcing teams to play our brand of ball because we have no brand. Teams play down to our level and then we find a way to let them out in the end.

    With this season over, we look to next. An uphill battle to rebuild THIS bunch. Anyone feel we have the right people to make the best choices to maximize our rebuild? My real concern is our stadium deal; how can we sell this team in it’s current condition to a tight pocketed state? Thoughts….?

    Anyone know what the Vikings’ worst regular season record is?

  38. By Dueyz on Nov 27, 2011 | Reply

    ….looks like we were 2-11-1 in 1962, and 3-13 in 1984. Are we going to challenge the 1984 record??
