For the second week in a row the Vikings let a halftime lead get away from them. This time, they wasted a dominating performance in the first two quarters in falling 24-20 to the Buccaneers on Sunday, dropping them to 0-2. The Vikings are too conservative in 2nd half , they get too comfortable with the leads and we pay for it later.
The problem with the Vikings and a lot of NFL teams is that they play not to lose, instead of playing to win. They get conservative when they get a lead, and all that does is give the opponent the chance to catch up. In order for us to get back on track & win we have to be some combination of good or aggressive.
McNabb has skills and experience, but he doesn't win. At least not in recent years. He doesn't even look motivated on the field. Get it together McNabb! The Vikings had 17 first downs in the first 30 minutes to 3 for Tampa Bay.
Peterson rushed for 120 yards and 2 TD's, Harvin had 7 catches for 76 yards.
I wonder if McNabb ignoring Berrian like Favre did? If Berrian were Moss would he be double covered? Yes, so act like it!
The D-Line needs to Throw their hands up & at least pretend to try and block, intercept a pass. O-Line needs help. Loadholt is a bust, Johnson is inadequate. McNabb needs to work on his motivation as I said before.
I want to ask Fraizer why did the Vikings had three time-outs left at the end of the game. Why did we not use 1?Frazier manages great offensive and defensive schemes in the first half but never changes them when the other team figures them out. Will the Vikings resign Pat Williams cut Tyrell Johnson, move Winfield to safety & sign Benny Sapp?
Even with the pressure on Freeman he got the Bucs to 14 points in the fourth to steal the win.
Ronde Barber was held to a 9-yard scoring run less than a minute before halftime to give the Vikings a 17-0 lead.
Blount had a 27-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter and McNabb one-hopped a throw to an open Shiancoe in the end zone, forcing the Vikes to go for a field goal.
Freeman threw a 25-yard TD pass to Benn with under 7 minutes to play. Blount finished the Vikings off with a 4-yard run with 31 seconds to play.
Next Sunday the Vikings take on the Detroit Lions, I pray to the football God that we win.
