I’m proud of them for fighting back..but still so dissapointed in that Kirk interception to lose the game. You’ve got to be kidding me dude. You were running it down their throats and then we throw it away

    Fermin Sanchez Reply

    @Brenton Atkins yes all we can do is hope

    Brenton Atkins Reply

    @Fermin Sanchez SKOL

    Tyler Burge Reply

    Yeah it was a bad decision but that was not a pick the ball hit the ground before the corner did

    Ray Lars Reply

    He made the bad pass but he doesn’t call plays

    Brenton Atkins Reply

    @Ray Lars the play call wasnt bad. No problem throwing on 1st down. A veteran qb should know to throw it away and on to 2nd down

Flint Bosco Reply

It’s pretty apparent this team wont do anything notable as long as kirk cousins is qb

    Christine Culpepper Reply

    went from Kirk is average to fucking awful

    Tee Moncrief Reply

    Flint Bosco all we got is dalvin especially if Kirk keep wasting our wide out talent

    Spielman Spielman Spielman. His QB of choice during his reign. LAUGHABLE.

    DICK TRICKLE Reply

    A grade school kid playing at recess knows when your first read is triple teamed you look elsewhere to throw the ball. That seems to be too advanced a concept for Kirk?😬

    Flint Bosco Reply

    Hes erratic hes not a winner when the pressure is on he just starts throwing it 30 yards and crossing his fingers

gary cobiak Reply

Kirk is gonna get roasted all week and rightfully so. He’s not proven he can get it done. Also that was awful play-calling why would you take the ball out of Cooks hands on 1St and goal for an awkward roll out that hadn’t worked all game.

    WUEDXFEI Reply

    Because you trust your qb to throw it away if there is no good option. All Kirk had to do was throw it out the back of the Endzone. He instead saw three Packers and thought throwing it at them would work.

    IHCTerra Reply

    You are overstating Cooks effectiveness outside of the 75 yard run. Down in and down out, the Packers RB was actually more effective. With a long of 15, he averaged 5 YPC for 23 carries. After that one big run, Cook was 4 YPC on 19 carries. Averages don’t move the chains.

    The disparity in carries had more to do with which team had the lead. If you need to move the ball, throwing is more effective. If you want to burn clock and play field position, running is more effective. It is harder to score with a long grinding drive. Lots of short plays means lots of opportunity for mistakes to put you in 3rd and long.

    Cousins is not a bad QB. He isn’t a great one either. I think people just expect more out of him because of his enormous contract. You should be blaming the guy who offered it to him.

    Josh Imset Reply

    Seriously! Not to mention we have a fresh pair of rookie legs in mattison, who’d been pounding the ball effectively every time he had the ball but hey no just pass pass pass and be a hero

    PHYLLIS Dale Reply

    @IHCTerra
    I thiink there ‘s been many fans. Expressing displeasure over the GM who offered the $$$ contract! Remains to be seen if GM stays with Vikings.

    bill harvell Reply

    @IHCTerra You’re wrong. Cousins is a LOUSY Quarterback. He INVARIABLY CHOKES WHEN IT MATTERS MOST. ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE FOR THAT LAST PICK. NONE.

alex erickson Reply

ABSOLUTELY NO REASON YOU ARE THROWING THE BALL ON FIRST AND GOAL AFTER RUNNING IT DOWN THEIR THROATS

    Jacob Bastian Reply

    Yeah that was a great play call, absolutely horrible decision by kirk. Unbelievable decision to be honest. Stefanski called a perfect game and cousins executed poorly

    bill harvell Reply

    TRUTH. Absolutely no reason to put the ball in the air/give Cousins the opp to lose the game.

    Sharp_3yE Reply

    I think it’s more Cousins threw the ball late and no enough into the corner allow the defender to reach for it.

    Sharp_3yE Reply

    Or just throw it away

    polsdofer Reply

    We didn’t lose the game because we didn’t run the ball on first and goal. If Kirk just throws it away then were not having this conversation.

vikings2win247 Reply

Defense played terrible to begin the game. Cousins was terrible and I’ve lost confidence him. Cooks was awesome.

    BIG DA Reply

    vikings2win247 defense did its job tho for dam near 3 quarters and didn’t allow a single point

    howdyusa Reply

    If your vikings would have won everyone would be talking about your defense. Your defense was exceptional for 3 quarters and only 5 points was the difference between a loss and a huge win on the road. That’s not something to hang your head about. Can the packers win on the road late on the season. I’m not that confident.

Ugly Vikings football. Multiple opportunities to pull ahead were squandered.

Mike Faso Reply

1st and 10 in the redzone run the damn ball!!! Cook & Mattison were dominating on the ground and could have punched it in for the win.

    Tuff Gong Reply

    Mike Faso I agree with Yu 110%. Whose idea not to run the ball We should have won that game

    Mike Faso Reply

    @Tuff Gong the defense completely shut down Rodgers for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th quarter. There is nothing worse than losing a game where the team shoots themselves in the foot.

    Tuff Gong Reply

    Mike Faso I rather loose now than playoff we will bounce back

    Mike Faso Reply

    @Tuff Gong This is true, hopefully they bounce back next week against Oakland.

    Tuff Gong Reply

    @Mike Faso Now We should run the ball more often We got the best running back in the game.

Tee Moncrief Reply

Kirk trash fumble machine and pick machine smh investment just don’t add up 🤔….but dalvin the goat Skol !!!

JetD7 Reply

Kirk just trash😤 I’m sorry I can’t defend him anymore

jabba dabba Reply

terrible mistake to send a guy who won 13 games packing, and sign this nutcase kirk cousins. just because kirk cousins says all the right things, doesn’t make him good, or even a high character guy. he blew this game. and he isn’t half the qb case keenum was. i’m talking about the desire to win, not their yardage or whatever bs matt stafford like stat you wanna pull for cousins. cousins had 17 turnovers last year. on pace for it again now! way to go! DRAFT A QB!

    bruliet Reply

    You Keenum heads are delusional. If anything we should have kept Teddy. Kirk sucks and is a loser, at least we all agree on that

    jabba dabba Reply

    @bruliet i guess you didn’t watch the 2017 season which was the best season we had in a decade. guess we can ALL agree on that

D G Reply

Never wz high on Cousins, really rather we stuck wit Keenum but thats not reality, so Kirk u gotta step it up homie or ull be known as one the biggest free agent busts.

shav12 Reply

I’ve defended Cousins and supported him since we got him. But damn there’s a serious trend with this guy and it’s quite alarming at this point. It’s like he gets under pressure and his mind turns off completely resulting in horrible decisions

    Joseph Dunn Reply

    You took the words out of my mouth shav12, I want to surrport him and he does some good things, but no pro qaurterback can play like that

    blackjackcz Reply

    Yup, he needs a mental coach. Folds under pressure. He should go to an Anthony Robbins seminar at this point. I am still hoping for the best. SKOL!

    shav12 Reply

    Joseph Dunn he doesn’t seem to have the “clutch” gene which separates the average from elite. He really needs to learn how to manage pressure. Unfortunately that seems be a trait that comes naturally while being very hard to learn

Burning Karma Reply

Can we call up Sloter and take a look if he’s practicing better ? 🙄

    Isaias Gonzalez Noguez Reply

    Isn’t he the #2 QB?

    S.B.F. Productions Reply

    He signed with the Cardinals

    Luke Nietz Reply

    We released him. It’s all in on Kirk

    PHYLLIS Dale Reply

    There has to be some option to release Cousins. Waive the no trade clauuse? Certainly KC is aware that fans are so frustrated and done with him.. Does he not get it??

WolfCastle Wolfcastle Reply

Kirk is TRASH! & Lost this game!!
Dude is nothin but shaky out there & it only gets worse with pressure!…both from def & score.
You can literally see it on him!!
He was 5-17 at the 9min 3rd qtr mark. Thats garbage!!
He consistently missed/overthrew wide open rec’s & checked down on others (for little/no gain) out of pure panic!!
He has NO swag/energy/competitive attitude/confidence about him!!
He makes too many mistakes & looks like a deer in headlights…if he has to scramble.
Some blame has to go to some questionable play calling!…but kirk has the option of calling audibles too. I rarely see him change plays depending on what the def is doing.
Vikes had many chances to win & blew it. 100+ yds in penalties is just ridiculous!!
Can we trade kirk for keenum or sloter back!?
Atleast those dudes had a positive energy/effect on our team & played like ballers.

This team got kirk to sail the ship to the promised land!
He’s doing nothin but sinking it.

    It’s only 1 game out of 16 it’s not easy to go to Lambeau and win.

We definitely would have won if we had a QB who can handle pressure and made smart decisions

Mike Rhym Reply

We’re in trouble I don’t know why they released the young boy

Credit where credit is due. Vikings defense did an outstanding job.
