    With his first regular season game, how big of an impact will Jerome Simpson have? What kind of routes are they going to focus on?

    Are you as excited as I am about the return of Jerome Simpson ? I can’t wait to see how much he is able to spread the field and create more room for playmakers like harvin, Peterson and Rudolph. Al from kitchener Ontario

    At the end of the game when SF called their last timeout and THEN were allowed to challenge Toby’s run was everyone aware that they can’t challenge a play without a timeout? Then SF did it AGAIN, essentially they got 4 timeouts and 2 challenges when they shouldn’t have been allowed any of it. I am just glad we won because it would have been UGLY if those challenges would have resulted in something in favor of SF. Great win, Great game, and renewed hope!

    Will thats an easy call, Ain’ts got to win, no way we would want the Pack to win. after that then the Ain’ts can continue losing.

    Do you think Simpson coming back this next week will change up the offense to be less horizontal and more vertical down field, or do you think the coaches are going to use the middle a bit more now that we have a deep threat returning? Just curious as to what you think is going to be changing in the way of Ponders targets and how starts his reads. Thanks Wobs!

    Oh yes, the vikes are gaining another offensive weapon with Jerome Simpson. Simpson, Harvin, and Rudolph…. can’t wait to see that!

    If Ponder and the young secondary keep improving, the Vikes May be a sleeper team!

    Jerome percy ponder Peterson and Rudy will lead us to the play offs this year I’m feelin it

    Obviously the calls in the game Sunday were horrific. A two part question…1. I saw Fraiser attempting to reason with the refs during the game, can a horrible call be correct when brought to attention or does the team just have to suck it up? 2. Can a team take any action after the game that would result in ramifications towards the NFL?

    Jarius Wright will be a mini harvin when he comes back

  19. By Adam on Sep 23, 2012 | Reply

    What is the deal with jarius wright? Was he a healthy scratch, hurt and can we expect him to play next week. If he does play, what will his role be considering w’ere also getting J. Siimpson back. I think our offense has potential to be dangrous with the addition of these two. Have at it Mike!

    Will the Vikings win all their home games as Titus predicted at the start?

    Ponder is doing fantastic, great start to the season. However, he seems to be favouring Kyle Rudolf for the passing plays are we in danger of our passing game becoming too predictable the the opposing defence?

    My concern is Toby Gerhart is not known for fumbling. He fumbled 3 times in the last few minutes of the 49er game. Is there reason to be concerned ?

  25. By Jake on Sep 24, 2012 | Reply

    The Vikings used to have the Randy Ratio and then Peterson had something much like it, which the Vikings felt increase their odds of winning. I am really starting to think we need a Harvin equivalent, what do you think?

  26. By SUPERVIKINGMAN on Sep 24, 2012 | Reply

    Actually, Toby fumbled once. The whistle blew before he lost the ball on the first one when his forward progress stopped and SF was trying to turn him into a pretzel. The second one he recovered himself and the third never should have happened as the referees were the ones dropping the ball by giving SF two extra timeouts.

  27. By SUPERVIKINGMAN on Sep 24, 2012 | Reply

    My question or main concern is Frazier’s involvement in the game. Its tough to watch a coach like Harbaugh jawing away at the refs and Leslie looking like he’s thinking about a sandwich or something. I’m not certain he or any coach understood the timeout rule because someone would have brought that to his attention – at least a guy in the booth – so he would have been able to inform the refs that after SF’s last timeout, they couldn’t use the red challenge flag. THAT should be a BIG concern to all of us. usually, it’s moves like that that cost us the game. Other than that, this was one of the best TEAM wins in sometime…. What a great game for all. SKOL!

    If Simpson comes in and catches just one deep ball or two, I guarantee U that AP’s off to the races and will crack 150 yards each and every game. The only thing the offense needs is someone to stretch the field (ala Bernard Berrian couldn’t do) and if Jerome can add another receiving threat, this offense will become respectable and dangerous…. I’m just glad we haven’t played GB yet. WE could be potent by the time that game rolls around.

    Just watched the Frazier presser and not one Q about the timeouts at the end of the game. Where reporters told to avoid those Q’s?

    Mike, Ponder has lead the league in completition percentage through 3 games now. We are tied for the lead in the division and after a big win at the metrodome our potential is growing exponetially. With Harvin being such a diverse and efficient weapon for our offense what are the chances he is re-signed DURING the season?

    I’ve been a Viking fan since the beginning, but I do feel sorry for GB fans. However, everyone seems to be missing the point . . . Granted huge money does not take long to corrupt anything, but I kind of prefer randomly dispersed incompetence from replacement officials over well placed blatantly corrupt calls from the regular guys. So . . . are the replacement officials really that big of a scar on the already ‘officially’ tainted NFL?

    Why Leslie Frazier does not use Joe Webb as a wide receiver/running back consistently as he is a massive threat with the ball in his hands. Percy, Joe, Adrian, Jerome Simpson, Rudolph…, who are you gonna cover? We need an additional big threat at receiver, which would also open it up for Jenkins, Carlson, Aromashadu, and Joe is supposedly one of the most athletic on the team. Quit hiding him for future use. I’m just saying…….

    this team is beginning to look just like that, a team. Wow! The throws and catches, players accross the board look great. In reply to Berry Fett’s comment and a few others. When Simpson returns next week it should open this offence something crazy. And I also believe that Joe Webb is a seriously talented player who could be a great QB, but outside of that being said. If at some point you realize thats not how he would be used. Its time to put him on the field as a reciever. I truely believe he would elevate this offence even more. The threat of him on the field, having most teams knowing his capabilities, would have most teams all caught up. Just something to think about. Yo, vikings, and fans??? NICE WIN!!!!!!!!!!
