Minnesota Viking Talk

Well Hello out there. Welcome to Vikings Hot Talk. I will be your host Cyrus Bahr. Just to let you in on what I plan to do on this blog, I hope to raise some interest in some of my opinions on the Minnesota Vikings and other sporting issues out there. I hope to get our fan base out there to voice there opinion in a free but tactful way. I hope to generate a little controversy with some of the local columnists like Mike McNegative, aka Mike McFeely. Enough about me. What about you people out there. I want you to voice your opinion. Without you this site will not be possible. So let's speak our minds. Lets talk sports and lets see what people really know out there.

Hot Talk Minnesota Vikings: Stunning turnaround leaves 'Skins in control of playoff fate.

Well it was a tough loss against the Skins. TJack had some more growing pains but what do you expect most guys in there first full season do. I know there will be people calling for Childress head but guess what guys he is going to be our coach next year as well. We cannot give up though. There is still one more week and we are still in the playoff hunt. With the exception of a couple of years ( I have been a die hard since 1980), it seems like this is something I say every year. I will be at the Denver game so hopefully they pull one out of there you know what and hopefully (gulp) Dallas wins. I say gulp because I have never rooted for the Cowboys in my entire life until next week. It will be OK thought since Brad will probably be starting for them next week.

Back to the game. It was a tough loss not because I thought we would win but because TJack got us into a hole right away. Now this is going to happen when you have a young QB but we knew this was going to be a roller coaster season with him going in anyway.I still like what I saw in the 2nd half. They didn't lay down and showed me that they have heart. I am a little confused about AP not playing much in the 2nd half but my guess is that he isn't pass protecting very well and that the running game was useless to us at that point anyway. Hopefully it isn't too discouraging for AP because he looked kind of ticked on the sideline. The play that ticked me off the most was the first pick not necessarily because we threw it but because of who picked it off. Fred Smoot the second I saw him pick it I had really bad feelings about this game it was like a very bad omen. Also I have to give Kudos to Joe Gibbs for that challenge. That was the final nail in the coffin. You could just see the dome deflate after that challenge. That is another topic as well. They need to totally get rid of the instant replay. Because the play before it looked too me like Moss's feet were not in and Childress didn't even get a chance to look at the replay. They need to get rid of it if there is going to be crap like this going on.

So really we shouldn't be disappointed and we should be happy with how this season panned out as a whole. Going into this season I expected to be 8-8 or 9-7 with a possible surprise playoff run and that is exactly how it is turning out. Last year I said we would be around 7-9 or 8-8 and I wasn't far off either. Now we aren't out of it yet but I want to talk about next year already. I think with a couple of big free agents next year this team could be one of the best teams in the conference. I truly believe that Jackson will be a much better qb next year but we need a safety net as a backup. NO not Brooks or Holcomb either, I am thinking someone like Chad Pennington, a smart qb who doesn't lose games by making mistakes. Someone whom Tarvaris can learn from. Then I think Childress should suck it up and call Shaun Hill back as our third string qb. This guy has actually looked pretty good the last 3 weeks and actually deserves to be a backup somewhere. He looks like a good fit for a west coast type of offense. Hope everyone his having a merry xmas and see you in Denver where I hope to be bloggin to you from there as well. Happy holidays. Skol Vikings!!!
