After the Game
Vikings Lose Again. This Time To The Raiders 27-21
A lot of us after the game felt like this little girl crying about the Vikings ‘always losing’. An ugly game yesterday resulted in a 27-21 loss to an injury plagued Raiders team. The Vikings offensive line has more holes in it then a slice of Swiss cheese. Christian Ponder made some plays but overall didn’t have a very good game. Blame it on the o-lineman or the receivers who consistently dropped good passes. To top it all off Adrian Peterson was injured early on in the game. Fortunately initial news is that its “just” a ankle sprain and that no bones were broken. More news on Peterson’s injury should be available sometime Monday.
With 8 losses this season you start to wonder if firing any of the coaching staff becomes a legitimate option? I’m not exactly happy with Frazier but I do believe he deserves to roll over into the next season. He is after all taking over a team that was ruined by Childress.
6 more games this season. I think its pretty fair to assume the playoffs are out of the picture as an 8-8 record will not do it. A positive end of this season would involve Christian Ponder continuing to progress and to see a couple players set themselves apart from the pack. What do you want to see from the Vikings the remaining of the season?
