    Vikings...

    I think today I came to a realization that the Vikings are the NFL's version of Iowa State. Both have seemingly good talent and hang around games until they shoot themselves in the foot with a turnover. The Vikes beat themselves today much like the clones do all year.....I hope both teams start turn it around!

    Re: Vikings...

    Anybody with their QB situation is going to have trouble winning ball games. Otherwise, I'd say they have more talent than I-State, comparitively of course.

    Like ISU, the Vikes are shooting themselves in the temple.

    The story of the Vikes over the last 20 years...good defense, bad offense...good offense, bad defense...passing game but no running game...running game but no passing game. Hopefully, Jackson will be back soon...

    The Vikings are not playing with an NFL type QB. Not even close. I'm surprised they were in the game until the end.

    Been a Vikings fan since Joe Kapp took them to the NFL title in '69. AD is the best RB they have ever had, bar none. I am not yet sold on Jackson or Childress however

    I traded Ronnie Brown earlier this week (with the "throw-in reciever" Bowe) and watched both of them light it up.

    Then I watched my effective RB#1, Lamont Jordan leave the game in the 2nd quarter possibly for the season.

    Bad day.

    Re: Vikings...

    Minnesota is the one and only team that has made me jump off the bandwagon. I get plenty of agony from the Clones as it is. They've sucked me back in once or twice, only to go down in flames. Now I just follow whoever has Cyclone players.

    I don't understand how you think the Queens beat themselves. The game should have never been that close.

    -Packers fumble at the 1 yard line which would have put them up 14-0.
    -Fumble again (up 14) when they are running out the clock.
    -Packers settle for 3 field goals in the red zone
    -Vikings don't see the red zone until under 2 min in the game (due to GB fumble)

    Re: Vikings...

    "queens", good one, almost as creative as cyclowns...

    childress is not panning out, he should be gone at the end of the year, this team shouldn't be this bad. he is really stubborn and i don't understand many of his decisions.

    i like TJack, but he just isn't ready yet. AD is incredible, very exciting to watch!!

    i wish they would have made tomlin the head coach...
