2016 Week Eight: Vikings vs Bears

This game was more painful than last week’s game to watch. It sucked and frankly I’m tired of the sub-standard product the Vikings are putting on the field. But – after 40+ years of watching this franchise, I should have expected this devolution sooner or later.

Let’s break it down.

I don't think it's too soon to say that the Vikings are going nowhere this season.

I don’t think it’s too soon to say that the Vikings are going nowhere this season.

The Good  (Yeah – there was nothing good)

  • One good thing about the 1st quarter: Jeff Locke’s punts.
  • The Bears incurred an unsportsman-like penalty on a Vikings 3rd down, giving the Vikings their first drive that wasn’t a 3 and out. The super-charged offense managed to put up 3 points. Barely.
  • The Vikings managed to score on a 4th down and 4 in the 4th quarter. No one cared because it wasn’t like they were moving fast enough to mount a come from behind thriller of a win. At this point, they were just going through the motions. And to prove that, with 5 minutes left, and 10 points down, they did not perform an onside kick and didn’t bother to get the Bears off the field in a 3 and out – they just let them march on down the field. Because that’s how the new Vikings roll.

The Bad

  • The Vikings first offensive drive went no where. Asiata couldn’t run it more than a yard or two, Bradford’s timing was off and the offensive line collapsed repeatedly, allowing pressure to affect the QB
  • The 2nd offensive drive was a 3 and out.
  • The 3rd offensive drive was a 3 and out.
  • .The entire 1st half sucked. All phases. Xavier Rhodes was the lone stand out.
  • I was THRILLED when the first half was over. I imagine I’ll be thrilled when the whole stupid game is over.
McNugget vs McNabb. What's the difference?

A McNugget could block better than TJ Clemmings.

The Ugly

  • Kearse doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing – The Bears’ Howard broke off a 50+ yard run – it was ugly and made me swear. Repeatedly. Somehow, the Vikings managed to hold the Bears to a field goal.
  • The offensive line is a complete and utter joke. Unbelievable.
  • Zimmer challenged the dumbest call ever and it cost him a time out. When a runner is declared down and the video shows him down, don’t challenge that stuff.
  • The 3rd quarter was terrible. It’s always fun to listen to the announcers talk about the lack of urgency of the Zimmer squad when they’re behind. And it’s true – so it’s not like we can dispute it. When the Vikings are down, Zimmer has NO URGENCY. And it’s infuriating – because we never have enough time to come back. Ridiculous. I don’t go after Zimmer often, but on this, the announcers are correct.
  • The 4th quarter, while it saw an actual passing TD, was terrible, too. This was the worst football I’ve seen since… last week.

The Inexplicable

  • How could the Vikings go from so great before the bye to such a BIG PILE OF CRAP after the bye? I mean, this team is terrible. And yes, I’m aware that we’ve suffered a ton of injuries – but the team that went into the bye had something special. This team? This team is going to lose ever single game for the rest of the season unless something drastic happens.
  • Did I mention no urgency? And middle of the field throws as the time wore down? I do not understand how the hell Zimmer could allow that to happen.

So that’s it for another week, Vikings brethren. The Vikings are 5-2 and clearly on the downward trend. We should have known this world happen – and probably, secretly, we did.

Here’s a poll.
