At least the good news for me today is that my doctor said my Cholesterol dropped 50 percent.

Gonna be a looooong off season in 2012. Wait, what? We still have to suffer through 7 more games of this?

Winfield has become worthless. Get rid of him and the rest of our secondary for players with speed, size, and durability!

I think Winfield was a great player over his career, but age and injuries have caught up to him as well as E.J Henderson and Hutchinson, there are several other high priced veterans that the Vikings could do without on the roster it's time to figure out who the Vikings want to keep. Start playing the guys on the practice squad and fielding calls for trade possibilities and consider hiring a general manager and new head coach for next season. What is the worse that could happen we could continue to lose by putting in the young guys and giving them valuable playing time and experience for next season.

The defense as a whole forgot how to tackle in the open field. Our DBs looked confused and couldn't make an open field tackle to save their lives. Allen, Sanford, Griffin all looked inept. DB's and O line in the draft/free agency or we're in for a few more years of this garbage.

The one db on the team that's worthy of an NFL contract. The back 7 on that team needs to get a lot better, along with almost everywhere else. Time to get a real GM?

Vikings had 2 weeks to scheme and prepare for the game & we get this? If not for the muffed punt-the Vikings could have laid a goose egg. Winfield hurt again? Winfield was a great player for many years, but it is time to face the writing on the wall and part ways. Just like Vikingschamps said several other players at the end of their career need be let go. Someone please let Greenway know that he signed a huge LB contract so it is past time to earn all that extra money & spending so much time on your hinnie during the course of play is not earning it. If the secondary is confused-tme to start canning the DB Coach, the D-Coordinator, & Frazier-DId I mention that they had 2 weeks to scheme & plan for the game last night. Pathetic showing. Oh before I forget-WHO GREEN LIT THE STADIUM ADS DURING THE WORST SHOWING IN YEARS-SOMEONE WHO CAN NOT BE TRUSTED MANAGING THE AFFAIRS OF A $1.2 BILLION STADIUM THAT IS WHO.

All the best to Antoine. Lots of highlight-reel worthy tackles in his career.

the offense had no answer for the 3-4 defense and the blitz's. The defense couldn't deal with the no huddle. Coaching. Pure Coaching.

Living in a state with arguably the nation's top healthcare and physical well-being awareness, it defies imagination why Minnesota's professional athletes are so prone to serious injury lately. Could it be their off-the-field habits and behaviors? These people are reportedly adults. They should act like they know what that means. Focus in a successful athlete means 100% of the time, not just in weekly practice and on game day (reference the Olympians). "But I have a life outside of sports!" Not if you want that ring, you don't.
