This is amazing. How you're allowed to incite others with statements like this is beyond me.

Providing facts is fine. Making rude comments is not.

Did I miss the memo for mod tryouts?

Seriously the statements were clueless. I didn't call out a poster. I could have said they were lies.

Back to football please. You do your best to derail threads.


So it loOks like Avril will be ok

Chad Greenway's statement about his hit to Calvin Johnson:

Greenway: "You feel bad about that. Obviously, I don't want to get a penalty, for starters, to hurt our team. I certainly don't want to get a fine, because my wife will yell at me. And I don't want to hurt Calvin. I don't want to hurt anybody. For me, as a player, I'm thinking, he's going to catch that ball 99 percent of the time. He didn't that time, so when I go up to try to break the ball up, my pad -- it's clear on the tape that it hits his head. What are you going to do? They're going to throw the flag and I'm probably going to be assessed a fine and that's just the way they're going to do it."

I've watched him play every game. It goes beyond that with him. Everyone outside Minny fan base sees game manager

It's not a bad thing but it is what he is

game manager or whatever label best describes him, he's playing significantly better than last year. and that's what you want to see in a young starting QB - improvement.

Well he couldn't get much worse then last year. He has improved be ause they dumbed down offense for him. It worked for Alex Smith and Dilfer won a Super Bowl with it.

It's smart

i think the approach, be it a good one or not, is to build his confidence with the easy stuff. the MINN coaches seem to have a real hangup about Ponder's confidence, not that it appears lacking, and helping him. when we brought on McNabb last year early on, it was publicly stated it was so Ponder wouldn't be thrown to the NFL wolves right away, which would hurt his confidence.

confidence seems to be a big deal in their personnel approach. the same thing was done with our rookie kicker, who was said to have had a bad senior year due to confidence issues. how did the MINN front office deal with it?

they cut Ryan Longwell early on in the summer, saying to the rookie Walsh - you're our kicker, you don't have to worry about beating someone else out.

like i said, i don't know if it's the proper approach or not, but it seems to pervade in to their thinking.

And dont say you dominated us. We had more special teams td's than you had offensive td's and you didnt move the ball at all until we had a double digit lead. I used to like the lions, but most fans are getting way too cocky. You guys have offensive talent, but overall you are just not a good football team right now. You guys are 6-10 over your past 16 games and there is so much wrong with you team.

That all seems pretty much accurate.

wouldn't it be nice if all of us stopped taking cracks at fans and fanbases?

it just leads to stupid arguments.

Interesting tidbit: the Vikings are... 6-10 over their past 16 games.

We lost a close game. We have only lost close games so far. It happens in this sport. If not for horrid ST play, we'd likely be 3-1, and this wouldn't even be a conversation. It's fine that it is, but those are the circumstances. Even with "not being a good football team right now", we lost to ST play.

I'm not worried about it. See you later in the year.
