Josh Robinson struggled again, but he wasn’t alone against the normally passive Panthers.

Maybe the coach and his staff needs to be "re-evaluated". Putrid performance today at home and the Cleveland game. Disgusting.

As the Queen of Hearts in Wonderland would say, "Off with their heads!" The entire coaching staff. But, please, please start with Josh Robinson.

Its not that they're 1-4 or spilled milk, this goes back decades. It's about 1980 when I was 7 and watched Rashad and Kramer beat the Browns, 30 some odd years of die hard following of this organization it sickens me. Today I just came to the realization that I don't like you. I really don't. You offer me nothing, you're a greedy money business and you offer me nothing. You're cold cheap and a complete bunch of losers. This is a dedicated life long die hard saying forget you! There are better things to do than support Viking football. Cashing in, no gold watch, thanks for the memories. Can't stand ya anymore.

The only way to support this team is to become an ANTI FAN as I did the Sunday Green took a knee against Atlanta. Now I can watch and not care if they win or lose. And except for the first Farve season, they are usually putrid and embarrass our state. Giant playoff game in 2000 anyone? The only pro winners in town are 5 women. Two championships in a row. I'd like to see one of the male teams pull off a back to back.

Vikes haven't faced the tough part of their schedule yet. This season's a disaster and today's game a disgrace. Time to blow it up and go with full-fledged youth movement and new coaching staff assured next year.

Why does the Vikings staff seem to realize the obvious months/years after everyone else? Josh Robinson, Christian Ponder, weak cover 2, run-run-pass-(punt) play-calling all have no place in the 2013 NFL

The Panthers just ran up the score. It's time to become a Packers fan. They don't wait years to fix things. As a high revenue team the Packers can afford better coaches and scouts. Plus they do not have a greedy owner pulling money out of the franchise and lining his pockets. That is perhaps why they have won more world championships than any other team seven of which occurred during the the time the vikes have been around and not gotten one.

All of the Linebackers must go. Fire Josh Robinson Fire the coaches Fans: do not go to the games!!!!! No new stadium for these losers...

First time in 45 years I couldn't bear to watch these clowns. I turned them off. Vikings need to clean house before the trade deadline and start planning for the future. Yes, trade Adrian, Allen (past his prime) and Kevin Williams (if we can get a draft pick). Cut worthless Cook, Robinson, Samford and Henderson. Play your rookies to evaluate their talent. The Vikings can go 1-15 with rookies playing or with these no talent boobs so do it. After the season, go get a coach who has proven that he can lead a team to the playoffs and beyond. No more training jobs in Minnesota. Pathetic. Talent is on the team. They're either lazy or have no pride. Not one coach worth a darn either.
