Well, I had a good time at the game. Of course I wish the results were different. What I saw was basically what everyone else did. And to top it off, the officiating in this game was god awful. More with the missed called then the bad ones that were made. The Colts line where mugging Allen on just about every play. Of course Im not blaming that on why we lost. Some of my obsevations..
We have no receivers outside of Percy Harvin. Everyone was bitching about Ponder not going down field. People there was NOBODY open down field.
Ponder is not the problem with the offense. He did make a couple bad decisions of trying to squeeze the ball into coverage. This was later in the game. More then likely because he was probably trying to make something happen. Other then that he played a good game.
Percy Harvin is a stud. Seeing him in person, you see this little guy with a small frame. Then you get him out on the field and he plays so fast. Its obvious that the Vikes are using him a lot more this year. Im just hoping they dont run him into the ground. He was cramping toward the end of the game. But it was probably because that he was in on every offensive snap.
And I know it might not mean much during game time, but Blair Walsh was constantly nailing +60 yard FGs during warm ups. And I dont mean barely, clearing it with room. The guy can flat destroy a pigskin lol I hope that he works out for the Vikes. So far so good.
Jared Allen got a pretty good bald spot going.
Phil Loadholt is huge.
Josh Robinson likes to dance.
Kluwe was talking to a lot of fans in purple, smiles a lot, seems like a cool guy.
Lucas Oil Stadium is pretty awesome. It was a gorgeous day and they had the roof open. It just sucks I had to pay $4.00 for a bottle of Coke. lol
