I bet my kid (a Colts fan) 1000 pushups on this game, to be done within a week, video'd for proof. Fuck me! I'm not in very good shape right now, 50 years old, and dreading the shit out of this second half.

And 97 yards, with about 25 being gatebage yards to end the half with 5 seconds left. So they compiled about 70 yards of total offense

Third INT. There have been 19 pass attempts and 6 rushing attempts. Did Zimmer change his philosophy overnight, or is he going to fire another offensive coordinator for refusing to hand off the fucking ball?

4th and 32 lol

That’s really hard to do

Btw how many teams in nfl history have given up a safety on the first 2 games of the season?

That’s also almost impossible to do

Maybe if they worried about how to play football half as much as they worried about how to celebrate criminals then they wouldn't have sucked so fucking bad. Lolol.

Holy shit, you may be onto something here.... oh wait, no sgotwalks disagrees so nevermind, the vikings are amazing no matter what!!!!!

I found the bright side. Looks like we are throwing our name in the hat for the Trevor Lawrence / Justin Fields sweepstakes.

I’m not even joking, but if something doesnt change i don’t think they can win a game this year. They could realistically go 0-16

They have titans, Texans, Seahawks, falcons and packers coming up. That’s for sure an 0-7 start if they keep playing like this

I remember looking at this schedule when it came out, thinking we might go 9-7 realistically, and hoping for 10-6. And that was long before we saw how terrible they would play.

You silly kids. Vikings have one of two seasons. They will start like 2-6 and finish 9-7, just making it to the playoffs where they choke.

It's been a few years since they done this but this is how they are. Other years, they start hot and end cold to choke in the playoffs

Dating advise: date Viking fans. They keep coming back think I g this time will be different even though nothing has changed

This year is different. We’re not choking at the end and losing close games. We’re getting blown out, bad, and it would be worse if the teams didn’t let up at the end. GB went for it on 4th goal at the 1 last week. If kicked a field goal or scored a TD, they would have put up near 50. Indy threw a fluke TD at goal line today. It easily could have been 35-3 in the 4th quarter.

There is nothing about our team that looks good. Cousins is bad, offensive line is bad, receivers can’t get open, all of defense is terrible, and special teams are fucking up.

This isn’t a “we just need to play better defense as the offense is good” years.

On the bright side, Justin Jefferson was the top wideout on the Vikes in week 2. On the downside, he had 3 catches for 40 yards.

The most safeties ever recorded by the entire nfl in a season is 26. Average is around 10. The Vikings safe on pace to give up 16 themselves.

I can’t get over how awful they look. Not thrilled they gave Zimmer a 3 year extension. I have a feeling this will be like Childress, where we fire him and have to pay him for several years

Agreed. Pats paying Cam $1m and he’s throwing for 400 while rushing for 2 TD’s, with a lesser receiving core.

While we’re paying cousins over $30m

Who cares if the wikfs have to pay him, it doesn't affect the salary cap.  I have said it for years that Zimmer isn't a head coach.  Listening to the post game and it sounded like Zimmer continuing to push the run game late in the game down by 3 scores.  He doesn't know how to game manage.
