Simple for Minnesota, win and they are in, lose and they are out
Sorry.. Your at the 1 Yard Line.. You HAVE to go for it.. The play that was STUPID was 3rd down at the 1 inch line and they hand it off ..Why the HELL wouldn't you just use Culpepper as a QB Sneak??If Culpepper can't sneeze over the goal line from the 1 inch line then there is trouble.But I would never 2nd guess any coach going for it on 4th down at the 1 yard line, unless there are 5 seconds left in the game and a FG wins it..6 pt mistake by Tice. Stoopid.
It's certainly not a very, very bad coaching move. But, it is a very, very voliatile coaching move. In the long run, Minnesota should be able to score there about half the time and that should makes going for the TD worthwhile.However, this isn't the long run. If a more consevative strategy can win this game, the field goal is the best play. If an aggressive approach is necessary, then going for the TD is the best choice. I think Minnesota is more than talented enough to beat Arizona. So, I would have taken the 3 points. But, I don't going for the TD wasn't bad, just unnecessarily risky.Going on 4th down was a very, very bad coaching move.
Not sure I would say all players are playing for pride.. Did you watch the Bills or the Redskins yesterday?? LOL But as the Vikes should have known.. The Cards have beat the packers and the 49ers and only lost in overtime to the Rams, so they do play much better at home..As I type this The Vikes are 1st and goal at the 1.. And Moe walks into the End zone!! edited as I type WAY too fast sometimes LOLAgain, MIN has 1 win in their last 18 games on grass. This is the NFL, and almost every player is playing for pride, and all players want to keep the paychecks coming. If anyone thought that AZ would roll over & die for MIN, they were flat out nuts. MIN is terrible away from home on the stuff that mad cows can eat.
With the Vikings Offensive Coordinator being such a fricken idiot anything is possible.You Can tell Culpepper is getting pissed at the play calling as he is trying to audiable out quite often right now.. Too bad Moss and the RB's are teh only ones that seem to be listening.Do the Cards have a chance to come back? Packer fan in agony here....
Yea, he's playing, but you wouldn't know that with the play calling.. Can someone call Tice and tell him to take over Play calling and just send Linnehan home Early??Watching the GB game here in Boston, following the game on NFL.com. Is Moss even playing this half? No targets? Thanks.
