The Vikings were even worse than the Giants, who were awful but still won their first game.Josh Freeman made fans miss that Ponder guy, and special teams fumbled twice.

Leslie the garden gnome. Just stands around emotionless and no fire. You said this week that you saw "so much" from Freeman the last 2 weeks he just had to start. What exactly did you see? You honestly thought the same 8 plays Freeman would run was going to be better than Ponder or Cassell? Shows you how much you know. When will someone on our D ever catch an INT? How many can you drop over the years? Did Robison play? Giants play man coverage all game and our Wr's cant get open. Every other team in the league that has a giant TE gets them the ball ....except for Bill Musgrave. unreal.

Ponder should have been put in at halftime-he knows the offense. Frazier forfeited the game letting Freeman stay in. Heads need to roll starting with Frazier and Musgrave. Frazier is no NFL head coach!

I am pretty sure the Vikings are the only NFL team with four 4th string quarterbacks. When is the draft? Oh, and can someone other than Rick Spielman please select the next QB?

Please. No more "putrid." It's a simple-minded epithet that reflects badly on Reusse, the current headline writer, and any other of the slack-minded writers on staff.

Look at the bright side and cheer up, the amount they can charge, and keep a straight face, for the seat licenses is getting less and less. And who wants naming rights right now?

Simply terrible. No excuse for this lack of effort. Frazier and Musgrave HAVE to go!

How much is our governor giving the New Jersey team owner for this stuff? Hundreds of millions of our tax dollars plus charging "Stadium Builder License" fees (they sound sooooo important, eh?). Again, who was it that fell for the "owner threatening to move loser the team" ruse? I think he's running for re-election too!
