Vikings vs. Titans Gameday Thread
Interested to see McNabb and Ponder obviously. Also I hope Charlie Johnson holds his own because the word from TC is not promising.

This has been mildly disappointing so far.

Vikes99ej 08-13-2011 09:14 PM

The Vikings look awful. This is going to be a long and ****-filled season.

TitanHope 08-13-2011 09:18 PM

Doughie is at the game. That means he's seeing Chris Kluwe in person.

Lucky bastard...

General Zod 08-13-2011 09:20 PM

Well, how terrible is the combo of Chris Cook, Asher Awful and Marcus Sherels?

Vikes99ej 08-13-2011 09:39 PM

Webb goes for the scramble wayyyyy too often.

General Zod 08-13-2011 09:44 PM

Yep, but it actually worked on that series! lol The drive stalled when he started to attempt passes.

General Zod 08-13-2011 10:02 PM

Marcus Sherels is just lousy.

Vikes99ej 08-13-2011 10:26 PM

Ponder is impressing me, even if it is just against the second and third-teamers.

He's also playing with a bunch of third teamers, which has hurt him on multiple occasions with dropped balls and stupid plays causing penalties taking back nice plays.

General Zod 08-13-2011 10:31 PM

Im pulling for Jaymar Johnson to make the team.

yo123 08-13-2011 10:52 PM

Meh. Very vanilla on both sides of the ball. Erin Henderson looked outstanding, he was around the ball on almost every play. Everson Griffen and Christian Ballard showed some flashes. Ponder looked solid, had to improvise a lot because our depth at O-line is absolutely non existent but he handled it well. Chris Cook couldn't have played worse if he tried.

It's hard to judge the defense without K-Will, Winfield, Ced, and Allen but we need to tackle better and Allen and Cook got toasted all night.

I'm pretty sure he will as the punt returner, he's easily our best option back there. I want to see him get some time at WR too.

General Zod 08-13-2011 10:58 PM

Its kinda hard to judge either McNabb or Ponder tonight. The offense was so vanilla, but thats understandable. Ponder did have some nice throws. The guy looks the part at least.

marshallb 08-13-2011 10:59 PM

I've been loving Jaymar since two training camps ago. I really think he would have made the team last year if not for his injury that cost him his season, which isn't saying much since we had to trade for Camarillo right before the season due to our lack of depth, which at the time made him our #3/4 WR.

General Zod 08-14-2011 01:22 PM

NFLN is gonna reply the whole game tonight. I'll post some more about it after I watch.

what time?

FuzzyGopher 08-14-2011 03:44 PM

I keep reading on other Vikings message boards pleas from fans to move Chris Cook to safety. This is hilarious to me as the guy cannot tackle for ****, he gets swallowed up by blockers and doesn't wrap up. Asher Allen sucks at pretty much everything. Ponder looked solid, his mobility is surprising and I liked his accuracy. The whole noodle arm thing can probably finally be put to rest, he doesn't have an arm like Mallett but it is far from weak. I really want to see him playing with and against 1st or 2nd stringers to see how he handles things.

yo123 08-14-2011 04:07 PM

At this point Cook offers nothing. Horrible in coverage, mental breakdowns, and incredibly soft in the run game. Hell, Marcus Sherels is better than him right now. At least he wants to tackle.

Brandon Burton showed some solid things last night too, it's clear he's not ready yet though.

prock 08-14-2011 04:11 PM

Chris Cook is soo ******. Hated the pick at the time, hate it even more now.

He's "instinctive".

I agree with most, Chris Cook is nothing special, just like most of us thought when they picked him so high.

Really disappointed about the development of our corners like Cook and Allen, they look pretty average with Griffin and Winfield not in there.

Burton should make the team, I always liked him on Utah.

wogitalia 08-16-2011 01:57 AM

Thought both Ponder and McNabb looked alright given who was out, OL did not look good at all either which didn't help either of them.

Defensively, Henderson was solid and I liked Evans, Ballard and Griffen's efforts on the DL. Our secondary is going to be one of the worst ever, which is just great when we play the Packers.

I'd still love to move Winfield to safety but we just have absolutely nothing at CB either outside of him and hopefully Griffin...

Going to be a very long season by the looks of it, based on what I saw of Detroit we should be strong favourites to finish last in the division.
