Vikings Spoil Culpepper Homecoming

Posted by LOTGK on November 18, 2007

I Ain’t No Backup

The Minnesota Vikings spoiled the home coming of Oakland’s quarterback, Daunte Culpepper today with a 29-22 victory showcased with some wild plays. The Vikings are now 4-6 and still have an outside chance, (A huge outside chance) to make the playoffs.

Adrian Peterson, the rookie sensation and leading rusher in the NFL, sat out this week due to a knee injury but Chester Taylor stepped up and brought the wood and lowered the boom on the Raiders. Taylor rushed 22 times for 164 yards and three touchdowns with a 7.5 yards per carry average. Taylor also had three catches for 38 yards for a total of 202 yards. Chester Taylor receives the game ball for today’s victory.

Complimenting Taylor was Tarvaris Jackson. That’s right, Jackson. Tarvaris was 17-22 for 171 yards and one interception. Yes, Jackson also had a fumble and the interception was at the opposing teams 3 yard line, and made some real boneheaded throws, but was his best performance of the season.

Sidney Rice, the new Viking emergency quarterback. Great trick plays to open the offense up. Even Troy Williamson showed flash making a difficult catch on the ground. Bobby Wade, not so much as he fumbled.

Viking defense, well, allowed Oakland to pass for over 300 yards and kept the Raiders hanging around all day. The front four do not bring enough pressure by themselves, and need to blitz often. When the Vikings brought 5 plus they pressured Culpepper into errant throws and sacked him four times and tackled him three times for minus yards.

Daunte Culpepper came home today to Minnesota where he was a star, an all pro, and a promising career. Daunte scored many points at Minnesota and today would be no different. The Vikings were awarded a safety against Culpepper today as he threw the ball away as he was being sacked in the end zone. Thanks Daunte.

I have to give credit when credit is due. Brad Childress had the team playing loose coming off a terrible performance from last week. Opening up with a 79 yard trick play and mixing the run and pass together kept the Raiders on their heels all day. Let’s hope he has learned something today.

Final Thoughts:

There are six games left in the season. Do not, I repeat, do not rush Adrian Peterson back onto the field. Make sure he is absolutely 100% healthy and ready to go before he takes the field. Reality is, Vikings aren’t going anywhere this season, but Peterson will be the work horse and elite running back for 10 plus years to come.

Play Tarvaris Jackson, let him open the offense up, all the plays, and see for sure if he is the guy or not. The final six games should be his audition. If he improves to a 60 percent plus passer, eliminates boneheaded mistakes, cuts down interceptions, consistently passes for 250 yards plus per game, eliminates fumbles, and produces TD passes, then he deseres to continue as a viable starting quarterback. If he does not show signs of steady consistent improvement, it’s time for a change.

Was a little puzzled at the end of the game when the Vikings were at the Raiders 37 yard line at 4th and less than a yard to go with two minutes left in the game. Vikings averages over 7 yards a carry and would have been able to end the game if converted the first down. Instead, they punted for a net gain of 17 yards. But they gave the ball back to Oakland allowing them the chance to tie the game. And they almost did.

    I have been waiting for the Vikings to break out and today they did. A very good balance of passing and running, glad we have Taylor, but the defense still concerns me. They give up far too many yards. They rank last in pass defense. And we have quality players in the back field and linebackers and front four. Just cn’t get it all together.
    Vikes when the score 20 plus points are 4-0.
    Onward to next week, let’s keep it rolling. Yes, a quick dig on Pep.

    Yes, Vikings did a good job on offense today, even with Peterson out. I hope they hold him out until he is completely 100% healthy. why risk him, when the Vikings aren’t going anywhere.

    I am not sure why Jamarcus Russell hasnt started yet. I was looking on and it doesnt even mention the fact that he isnt playing much. The raiders season is done, what the hell are they waiting for? At 4 and 10 they are sitting playing him for 6 downs a game. What a waste, call it a wash and put him in already.
    This is so typical the Raiders and getting so old.

  4. LOTGK said

    Good point Chris. Russell missed all of training camp, all preseason, and a good portion of the regular season. You would have thought that when the Raiders were eliminated from playoff contention, he would get plenty of playing time.
    It would be his preseason and training camp with real live game experience.
    instead, they are fooling around.
    You have to ask why?

    I totally hear you Chris. I would be my life and my dogs life that he will be starting next year though. 100%. Now if the Raiders pick Chris Long in the NFL Draft and dont play him, well then I will have to be come Cowboy Fan for life 🙂 NAAAAAA.

    Oakland Raiders Fan for life!

    Happy Holidays.

    Raiders draft pick is Darren Mcfadden

    “McFadden is a rare talent who has incredible potential as a pro. The Raiders ended up with a 1,000 yard runner in Justin Fargas (4.5 yards per carry) in 2007, but the addition of McFadden would be a huge upgrade for the Oakland offense”

    Mcfadden and Russell would be an amazing combination.

  7. LOTGK said

    Agreed Mcfadden is a talented runner, as Russell a talented QB, the raiders just need to sign the draft picks on time to get them in camp. Russells rookie season was a complete waste. No training camp, no preseason, and only played the last two games of the season when he could have been getting valuable reps during “Live” action.
