4 Lost Superbowls

Drew Pearson's push off (that whole game was a mess)

One of my most cherished "in attendance" moments at a professional football game:

 

October 24, 2010. Lambeau Field. 4th quarter. 55 seconds remaining. Packer up 28-24 vs Minny.

 

Farve completes a 35 yard TD to Harvin and the 4 Viking fans two rows in front of us lose their minds. "You still can't beat him!!!!!", "It's gotta suck watching him to that to you in a Viking uniform", "It's gotta' suck he's doing that for us now!!!!".

 

Then the replay board showed Harvin's foot land 6 inches out of bounds and Lambeau absolutely EXPLODED. 20 minutes after the game was over the place never got quiet.

 

The walk out of Lambeau while the noise got louder and louder was something I'll never forget. Just an epic "Eff you Brett" moment shared with 70,000 friends.

 

The Vikings Suck!

A root canal without a local done with a chisel, rusty punch, dry wall saw and a dull 1/32 drill bit and rinsing with round-up would beat watching a game at the "I had no idea this place had a sunroof" dump of stadium.
 
The Vikings SUCK!  

Packers have a day off, let's check in real fast and see what's going on in Mankato via Kevin Seifert's live blog!!!

 

Good timing. Team drills are just starting...

 

Kevin Seifert

First play: Ponder throws up for grabs in direction of Rudolph. Harrison Smith breaks up. Second play: bullet to Simpson on sideline. Complete. Third: Ponder throws into Jared Allen's hands. Batted down.

 

Kevin Seifert

That's about his it's gone so far this summer in a nutshell.

 

Adam (fan)

Is ESPN mandating that you point out any bad play Ponder makes?  That sequence was during a blitz drill where the defense knows it is going to be a pass. That two of our better players break up plays is more telling of the defense than it is of Ponder.

 

Kevin Seifert

The alternative is what? Make excuses? Everything has tone perfect for ponder to be perfect? Just telling you what I've seen.

 

And that's a wrap here in Mankato. Thanks for stopping by!

 

The Vikings SUCK!

 

 

Day before yesterday they said Ponder was brutal as well. He not only short-hopped receivers, he overthrew wide open guys by a lot, etc. It seems he might be totally falling apart with the pressure of Cassel looking over his shoulder. Good thing AP wants to run for 2,500 this year, and break Emmit Smith's all-time record by the end of 2017.

Ponder is, and always will be an inferior QB, but bringing in a guy like Cassel is the worst possible thing they could have done. Not only is he no better than Ponder, but they've left the guy they took 7th overall in the draft looking over his shoulder. Letting Ponder build on his limited "successes" of last year for at least another season, with a better group of WRs would have been the smartest move. He has very little in his resumé to build any sort of confidence upon. Cassel didn't go to Minnesota because he thought he was going to be a backup, he knew he'd have a good chance at the starting job.

If I had a lot of money and spare time I would like to film a documentary called. "52 years of failure. A historical look at getting nothing accomplished". It would include all the highlights we've come to love and it would be narrated by Morgan Freeman saying things like "I wish I could tell you the Vikings fought the good fight.... and that the Packers let them be....I wish I could tell you that. But the NFL is no fairy tale world. There's a harsh reality to face....some teams weren't meant to win"" and it would probably win some awards.

"Can't say I'm surprised it happened considering all the time [Bishop] missed a year ago," Frazier said. "Just have to go day to day and hopefully get him back before the first preseason game. We really need to see him in some live situations considering all the time he's missed. We also have to be smart if he's not ready to go this week." 

 

Not enough stretching
