Tuesday Open Thread: September 17, 2019

Photo by Dylan Buell/ Two days removed from the passing game’s Limp at Lambeau. I’m still mad. Merry Tuesday, everyone! Well, it’s been almomst two days now (or more than two days, depending on when you log on and read this) since the game in Lambeau. I’m still unhappy, and I have reasons. I don’t like to complain constantly about one of the Vikings players, so I don’t do it. If someone has a bad game, I’ll point it out, just like I point out the good games. I like Kirk, and I think he’s a talented QB, and I’ve said that since the rumors about him coming to Minny first...

Vikings at Packers: Five Game-Changing Plays

Vikings at Packers: Five Game-Changing Plays

Kirk. Dude. | Photo by Dylan Buell/ Looking back at the most important plays from the 21-16 loss in Green Bay. For the first quarter-plus of Sunday’s game between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers, it looked like the home team was going to run their rivals right out of Lambeau Field. It was a Bizzaro Week 1 for the Vikings; instead of enjoying a 21-0 first half lead like they had against the Falcons, they found themselves trailing by that very same score just two plays into the second quarter. But unlike the Falcons the week before, the Vikings fought back well before garbage...

Eric Thompson The Vikings warrior poet coach dispenses his words of wisdom. ED NOTE: This has bad words. None of the other things we write on here do, but this one does. It seems to be a popular bit, so until the law catches up with me, I’m going to keep doing it. Thanks for understanding, and thanks for not reading and not letting your kids read it if bad language isn’t your thing. Hope you enjoy the rest of our articles—Ted When a warrior poet formulates a modern combined arms plan, everything is taken into consideration.

A TED Talk, Week Two

A TED Talk, Week Two

It was probably incomplete. | Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports Is all of last week’s positivity gone? It shouldn’t be. Good morning kids, how are we feeling this morning? I have to tell you, after last week’s great win to open the season, yesterday’s Letdown At Lambeau wiped out a lot of the feel good vibes we had up until about noon or so. I fully expected the Vikings to win that game, so color me gobsmacked at how the afternoon unfolded. Yesterday started out as the almost polar opposite of last week. Against the Falcons, the Vikings were up 21-0 before we could say Hub Mead....

Monday Open Thread: September 16, 2019

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports I was happy to see the defense bounce back after a rough start, I was unhappy to see the play of our quarterback. Good morning, everyone Wow, there are many ways to describe my feelings regarding yesterday’s game. After the first three series, part of me was trying to accept that it was going to be a blowout of massive proportions. Kiddo and I decided to go fishing in hopes it would make the team turn it around, and..........it worked! It was 21-0 when we checked out to go fishing, and when we turned the game back on, it was 21-13. Then the replay guys in...

Stock Market Report: Packers

Stock Market Report: Packers

USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin-USA TODAY NETWORK via Imagn Content Services, LLC After an impressive start last week, the Minnesota Vikings had an opportunity to take an early lead in the division with an early season matchup against the Green Bay Packers. As is usually the case, the Vikes made the least of their opportunity, and lost 21-16. They fell behind 21-0, went on a 16-0 run, and after having multiple opportunities to take the lead, they couldn’t get out of their own way, and fell to 1-1 on the season. I would say the Vikings shot themselves in the foot, but it feels like they...

Green Bay Packers 21, Minnesota Vikings 16: Vikings can’t overcome slow start, mistakes

Photo by Dylan Buell/ They had their chances, though Even after getting into a huge hole early against the Green Bay Packers, the Minnesota Vikings had plenty of opportunities to sneak out of Lambeau Field with the win. Unfortunately, they took advantage of none of them. The 116th regular-season installment of the Border Battle went to the Packers, as they scored touchdowns on their first three possessions and took advantage of a litany of Minnesota errors to hold on for a 21-16 victory. The Vikings found themselves in a significant hole early on, as they allowed the Packers to score...

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers: Second quarter recap and third quarter discussion

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports The Vikings have cut into the Green Bay lead Already holding a 14-0 lead over the Minnesota Vikings, the Green Bay Packers wasted no time adding to that lead to start the second quarter, as just two plays into the quarter Aaron Jones took a handoff from Aaron Rodgers and blasted into the end zone from three yards out. With the extra point from Mason Crosby, the home team was ahead 21-0. On the next drive, Dalvin Cook apparently decided that he was fed up with all the nonsense and put the team on his back. He took a handoff from Kirk Cousins, started out to...

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers: First quarter recap and second quarter discussion

Photo by Dylan Buell/ Nope, not good. The first quarter is in the books at Lambeau Field, and things have been pretty awful for the good guys, as the Minnesota Vikings find themselves trailing the Green Bay Packers by a score of 14-0. Things got off to a pretty awful start for the Vikings, as the Packers took the ball after the opening kickoff and marched 75 yards in just four plays, finding the end zone on a 15-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers to running back Jamal Williams. The drive started with a 39-yard connection from Rodgers to Davante Adams, and things didn’t get a whole lot better...
