Game #09: Vikings Defeat Packers 28-27

Posted by LOTGK on November 10, 2008

Adrian Peterson For President

Last week the people of the United States elected Barack Obama as our 44th president. President Elect Obama’s platform was change. The Minnesota Vikings also need change. As in beating the Green Bay Slackers for a change.

The Minnesota Vikings, in spite of the poor play from Gus Frerotte and special teams, defeated the Slackers for the first time in Brad childress’ career. He now stands 1-5 against them. I hope he doesn’t get all “Mavricky” about this win. After all, the slackers lost the game by missing a field goal with time running out.

Obama speaks of change, change at the top, and let it trickle down for all citizens to benefit. If the Vikings were the United States, perhaps Obama would change the following.

The President: Owner Zygi Wilf.
Wilf has owned the team four plus years now and instead of adding revenue, championships, or at least a winning record, the team is falling on dire times. Time for a change.

Wilf selected a man with zero head coaching experience to run the team and correct the wrongs from the past. Sounds a little like Sarah Pallin to me. Time for a change.

The great state of Minnesota slammed the door on Wilf and his proposed new stadium deal. After 2011, the team will have no home. No future, no revenue. Time for a change.

The head coach: Brad Childress.
Wilf appointed (Some would say annointed) Childress as the savior, as the man to right the rudderless ship. To move the team in the right direction. Three years into his term, the people ask what benefits have been received? The winning percentage is in decline. Childress inherited a 9-7 team, a team in the black, and then drove it down to recession type numbers. Way below 500. The bread and soup lines form on the left. Time for a change.

The Quarterback: Gus Frerotte. Gus is getting a bad rap in this deal. He is the fall guy when in reality, he is doing exactly what he was elected, err, hired to do. (Come in and play a few series and maybe manage a game or two due to injury to the starter) Problem is, Gus is now the starter. Gus threw 3 interceptions on Sunday against the slack and under 200 yards and only 50 percent completion rate.

Tarvaris Jackson is the lame duck quarterback that for the past three seasons have invested their future in. His name should be changed to Lehman Brothers.

Whats left is Booty, a new rookie recruit with zero experience. Booty may see action by seasons end if the Vikings continue to play at this level.

But Childress believed in his running mates. He did not pursue other viable better suited candidates to help him win. Instead, he invested his entire career with one man. Certainly it is time for a change.

Wide Receivers: Berrian, Rice, Wade, Ferguson, Allison. You couldn’t recognize these players if they were on a milk carton on your breakfast table. Not a single one of them strike any fear in opposing defenses. Simply look at the 8 and 9 men in the box to stop Peterson for all the proof you need. The leading receiver in Sundays game was Chester taylor, a running back. Our premier free agent Berrian was shut out. It’s time for a change.

Special Teams: Not unlike your special interest groups, the Vikings special teams take up a lot of space, slow progress, and usually wind up spoiling it for everyone involved.

The Vikings special teams tied an NFL record on Sunday. They have given up 6 TD scores in a season tying the Detroit Lions from 1980. Don’t forget, there are 7 more games left in this season. If the Vikings try real hard, they can shatter that record.

Seriously, special teams once again reared its ugly ass head and almost allowed the slackers to win the game. It is time for a change.

Kick Ass Offense:
This is like our foreign policy. Just keep sending more and more troops and supplies for something we cannot win.

If the Vikings had Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, John Taylor, and Roger Craig, then perhaps the West Coast style of offense Childress is running would work. Since the Vikings don’t have any semblance of that, the offense falters. Makes me think of pounding a round peg into a square hole. It’s not gonna happen. Its time for a change.

Game planning: There’s a reason why a president picks a cabinet of people diverse with expertise from many fields and backgrounds. Childress should follow this philosophy.

Instead, he continues to stay the course, even though the path is lined with ice bergs. Everyone has seen the movie. The boat sinks folks. But Chilly has a plan, a philosophy that no one else understands. Sort of like current president Bush when he speaks of his “Strategery” to leave Iraq. Its time for a change.

Things to build on:
Adrian Peterson. Like Keyshawn, just give him the damn ball. He will move the chains. He will score. He will win games. 30 carries for 192 yards and a TD on Sunday. Peterson took over the game when it was needed. Peterson has over a 1000 yards rushing after 9 games. He has a 5 yard average. He deserves the ball.

The D-line is almost Purple People Eater (Esque) No one runs on the Vikings and now, with the addition of Jared Allen, the pass defense has become stout.

Lets run down the list of players on defense.
Jared Allen DE, All pro.
Pat Williams, DT, All pro.
Kevin Williams, DT, All pro.
Edwards and Robison, DE, up and coming contributors.

Henderson, Leber, Greenway. Three linebackers that don’t get enough credit. All three stay at home in their scheme and make the play and tackle. Plenty of fire and tenacity there. All three are excellent cover backs with speed to blitz and power to stuff the run.

Cornerback Antoine Winfield, All pro. One of the best tacklers in the league. And no one throws his way.
Cedric Griffin, corner. Up and coming player relying on his speed and nasty attitude. Is slowly turning into a very solid corner.

Darren Sharper, Safety. Ball hawking, hard hitting, intercepting son-of-a-bitch with exceptional tackling skills.
Madieau Williams, Safety. All pro safety with excellent coverage skills and good run support.

To Sundays game:
Now everyone knows why Gus was available. No offense, (No pun intended) but he is not starter caliber anymore. His erratic play Sunday spelled that out clearly. But the Vikings cannot go backwards and allow Lame Duck to start. (Jackson)

Adrian Peterson took the game on his shoulders and carried the Vikings to victory. And that’s how it should be. When a team has a weapon like Peterson, you use it to its fullest capacity. (See Barry Sanders, Walter Payton, Emmitt Smith, Jim Brown, Franco Harris) Peterson in only his second season has proven himself worthy to be mentioned as elite status running back.

Really starting to like Jared Allen. Not just because he recorded another sack Sunday, but by the way he plays the game, and the media. He should instruct and teach the rest of the Viking players how to handle the media. Especially Chilly.

Note to Vikings brain trust: Do not trade or release Chester Taylor. All he does is produce when on the field. He has better hands than the Viking receivers. In a violent sport, it is always good to have a capable backup to fill in.

Second note to Viking brain trust: Fire Brad Childress.

It was nice to see the Viking defense apply constant pressure on the opposing quarterback. Rodgers was running scared, out of his game, and hurried many of his throws. And loved the safties. Those four points came in pretty handy yesterday now didn’t they?

Yes, the Vikings beat the Slackers and are tied for the division lead with the Bears after 9 games. Is this the time chicken little starts yelling that the sky is falling, or are the Vikings shielded by a teflon dome allowing them to play another day?

We’ll find this answer out next week when the Bucs come to town.

I’ll leave you with David Bowie,…

I still don’t know what I was waiting for
And my time was running wild
A million dead-end streets
Every time I thought I’d got it made
It seemed the taste was not so sweet
So I turned myself to face me
But I’ve never caught a glimpse
Of how the others must see the faker
I’m much too fast to take that test

(Turn and face the strain)
Don’t want to be a richer man
(Turn and face the strain)
Just gonna have to be a different man
Time may change me
But I can’t trace time

I watch the ripples change their size
But never leave the stream
Of warm impermanence and
So the days float through my eyes
But still the days seem the same
And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They’re quite aware of what they’re going through

(Turn and face the strain)
Don’t tell t hem to grow up and out of it
(Turn and face the strain)
Where’s your shame
You’ve left us up to our necks in it
Time may change me
But you can’t trace time

Strange fascination, fascinating me
Changes are taking the pace I’m going through

(Turn and face the strain)
Oh, look out you rock ‘n rollers
(Turn and face the strain)
Pretty soon you’re gonna get a little older
Time may change me
But I can’t trace time
I said that time may change me
But I can’t trace time

    I agree. Our special teams are a weak link. They almost caused us to lose on Sunday and did cause us to lose several other games this year. Not only in allowing 6 td scores so far this year, but giving teams fantastic field position to start kills the Vikes.

    Frerotte had one of his spaz days where nothing goes right. Thats why he is a backup but thrust into starting for lack of foresight by Childress.

    Big test at Tampa this weekend. If the Vikings can somehow win this game, they will be in the drivers seat.
