Moss free - could it be...? This Texas Viking fan just returned from Mn vacation and heard alot of excited talk about the Vikings prospects for the coming year. Main thought, without Moss maybe the offense can acquire a team focus and defense will be the key to any success - coaches have to get new players ready in a hurry and old/new players into the scheme. I do hope that the Viking's are not serious about Eddie George, they need help at RB but George has no answers.

Go VIKES !

Nothing is gained in winning the last game of this season. This season is over so lets start on next season now.

I am not saying to intentionally lose but rather play the backups too get a better look at what we have for next year and what we need to acquire this off season. And if we do lose, that will bring a better set of draft choices.

Coach Zimmer is still pissed about how poorly the defense performed this week and vows to correct the issues, by next season some time.

Another game they had won, but pissed away...which I guess is OK at this point in the season and only improves their draft position.

Teddy had some really nice throws and has shown a lot of potential as a rookie QB. Think he has come a lot further than expected, especially since he would have been riding the bench behind Cassell for most of the year under the original plan.

Defense played well enough to win - 2 costly turnovers with a short field resulted in 13pts. for Detroit...

Given what he did to his son, it may seem strange to say this, but Peterson has too much class to use the race card. I hope he learns how to properly discipline his kids without going over the line and beating them.

i don't think is has anything to do with race either. i think it has to do with him being paid while on the exempt list. which does not mean he was suspended. now that the case is over. he has to be suspended for conduct without pay. can't be considered time served because he was paid while not playing.

The Vikings seem to be on a roller coaster up one week and down the next. Lions up next, then they get to the easier part of their schedule with games at Buffalo, at Tampa and Washington.

They need to be at least 5-4 going into the bye week to have a shot.

Nomo, you're overracting to one game. The Vikes just weren't ready to play, which has been the case for all TNF road teams.

The absence of Patterson in the offense was pretty noticeable last night, but that's almost entirely on Ponder. He didn't hit any WR's until the 4th quarter when the game was out of reach.

One issue, is Patterson may not be the best route runner double coverage may keep him from being open. But yes, mix in a few more runs for him at least.

Zim/L2J - question for both of you. Why are the Vikes not trying to get the ball in Patterson's hands? I just don't see them trying at all - passing or running. He's obviously a dynamic player. I guess they are planning on Asiata breaking 60 yd runs up the middle?

Ponder was one of many problems last night. A more glaring problem was the poor line play on both sides of the ball. Made Eddie Lacy look like the 2nd coming of Jim Brown.

Looks like Minnesota finally found its QB.

Zim, Dallas got revenge for you on Brees. The pansy has other things to worry about now, such as a 1-3 start. LOL!

Sack of Brees

A great sack that is now apparently not allowed due to poor pansy QB's like Brees.

The Vikings placing Peterson on the NFL Exempt List does not appear to be all that bad for Peterson because he will receive his full salary. ESPN provides the details: "The exemption will allow Peterson to remain under the Vikings' control and earn his regular salary while he is away from the team until his legal situation is resolved. Vikings GM Rick Spielman said Peterson will not count against the 53-man roster."

Technically, he's on the Exempt/Commissioner's Permission list.
