Could be the coldest game in Minnesota Vikings history, coming up, and Sunday's forecast is now High: 0, Low: -10.

That cold weather certainly has me re thinking my fantasy choices.

LOL, Bud Grant walks out onto the field in a polo shirt in 6º weather.

Nice choke at the end by the Vikings kicker.

Also, you guys need a QB.  Bridgewater isn't it.  Need somebody who can do more than underneath checkdowns.

Yup. His completion percentage is great. But he can see what's open downfield, and when he does, he doesn't have the mechanics to get the ball there.

Weather did it's part.

Seattle kept to 10 points.

As always the ability of the Vikings to seize defeat from the jaws of victory comes through again.

27 yards.  It doesn't get any easier than that.  Should fire that clown before leaving the stadium....if for no other reason than to ensure his personal safety.

I wondered right away if he was paid to toss it at the end...but it could go either way with that guy...he's missed short kicks aplenty.

They need a RB who doesn't fumble too, after all this is a passing league and running teams rarely do well in the post season anymore, I would trade Peterson in a heartbeat for any reasonable offer and get a new QB and several O-Linemen.

Oh well, I bet they stand pat...this is not an organization that does things particularly well let alone bold.

Just another sad end to a Vikings season...if not for stupendous ways to lose games they wouldn't be the Vikings.

Here's the thing, yeah the kicker cost Minnesota the game at the very end, but without that same kicker how many points would the Vikings have had on the board?  A big fat zero, that's how many.  And that was their real problem.

You don't win games by scoring field goals.

Yeah, that too.  When they got to the redzone they didn't even try for TD's...they just settle, every time.  Part of that no doubt is the defense, Seattle scares the coaches and players, it is obvious they went in with a conservative plan, big shock, and yet the big mistakes were made by them anyway.  They should have played more like a team with nothing to lose...why did it take until the last minutes to discover Rudolph?  You can take shots at the endzone in an intelligent manner with manageable risk...you don't have to toss it up for grabs.

Again, that goes on the QB too.  They don't trust him to be able to do that.  Which begs the question...why is he your QB?

Heart breaker for the Minne Vikes.
I expected Seattle to roll over them but they played tough.

GB seems to struggling against the Skins

Yeah that was cool seeing the old guy basically call everyone else a bunch of pussies, what with their coats and gloves.  LOL.

Another thing that bugs me about that game, the TE Rudolph, I think he went out of bounds too easily on that reception.  Oh well.  That game was the Vikings' to lose.  The Seahawks won't be facing Teddy Checkdown next Sunday.

The equivalent to a duck hook in golf. Give him credit, he manned up and answered every question asked of him, he didn't hide. As opposed to Pac Man ( at least that was his nickname when he played for the Titans) Jones, who went on a F bomb laced tirade through social media around 15 minutes after his game, blaming everyone but himself for being a dumb ass.

Yeah, you're right about that.

If I was on that Cincy team I would asking management to cut the thugs loose or trade my ass, because I would not show up for work with those morons around.

But, I hear Peon Deon is not the only assclown defending these punks...

Yeah that is a thug team.  Last year when the Panthers played them, that same guy tried to twist ankles on tackles:







When asked about it, their coach basically laughed and said "Whatever" so you can see how the fish rots from head down.

Hey, I gotta thank them though...if not for the Vikes gassing most of their punks and Cincy acquiring theirs...the Vikes might still be stuck with the ignominious title of having the NFL's biggest collection of scumbags and felons!

The No F-ing Loyalty outfit strikes again!

http://www.latimes.com/sports/nfl/la-sp-nfl-la-chargers-rams-20160113-story.html

Money, money, money.

This is going to be the flagship stadium of the ubber wealthy and elite...no random street trash (except for bangers with lots of ill-gotten wealth) are going to be able to afford a seat in this palace to corporate greed...otherwise they would have built a more affordable stadium.

Just wait till the team goes to stinking though...this will only work if the team is good...so how willing will the other owners be to just let that happen...not like their egos and pocketbooks are any less massive and ravenous!

I say "Meh!", spend your billions...see if I care.

! No longer available

Looks like Rapefugees already like LA, so they got that going for them.
