Thanks, Jay! Terrible play calling. Kicking field goals when you need TD's. Same ol' JG.

Forbath couldn't kick the KO's out of the end zone, so they cut him.

Gruden is such a really bad play caller - he keeps calling a play that doesn't have a chance of working
This franchise is not getting better with the current people in charge - we need to do everything differently - the NFL has evolved and we're not adapting to what is working in today's NFL

GAME OVER

the Vikings scored 21 unanswered points in 5 minutes :shock: (the last 2 minutes of the half and the first 3 minutes of the 3rd qtr)
PLUS we allowed Case Keenum to have a career best game - Case Keenum is not a good NFL QB, not even close - Colt McCoy is better

BUT ... the really good news is we're at 4-5 and not 3-6 which is where we should be ...

I don't understand running Chris Thompson on a Heavy Jumbo play up the gut. Why wasn't Perrine in there for that?

Send Rose to on-side kicking school. That's his second horrible attempt out of two tries.

Another week, another game we fail to gain 100 yards with one of our RBs.

That's pathetic.

If you're content with 6-10, 7-9, or 8-8 records, Jay & Co. is what you need.

We should have sent Gruden to LA and kept McVay

this offense was not designed for a RB to get 100 yards - this is a passing offense

the offense is not pathetic - it is what it is

we are the woulda, shoulda, coulda franchise and have been since 1999 - that's not changing under this owner

we are also at 4-5 and only need to go 5-2 to end up 9-7 - after beating the Seahawks in Seattle, anything is possible



7 or 8 wins would actually be a better season than many expected so it's all good

If it does not produce good results then it's useless. I don't care if it's passing or running oriented.

Clearly the passing experiment has not worked. It's nice for racking up yards, but little else.

I see Cousins wearing Orange with a view of the Rocky Mts next year and Gruden in orange looking at the Great Lakes.

:shock: such a lot of BS after just 1 game and especially considering last week - we now face the Saints but it could have been 3 losses in a row - there's still 7 games left and after finding a way to win last week's game in a very difficult stadium, anything is possible

not sure what's going to happen next season with these bozos in charge - I'm planning to enjoy the rest of this one :D
