We finally get the big play from Barr that we've been begging for and squander it. Arrrrggggg...

That’s gotta be a record. This is exactly the kind of game Zim should be excited about and a game he should win yet here we are.

That's what made it a game. We were dominated for the most part. Baltimore scored on 6 of their final 7 drives. The only one they didn't was the Barr play, which was kind of a fluke.

They have a shit defense.

Our offense sucked a good share of the game, too. As it does for very long stretches game after game after game.

The defense couldn’t get off the field and the offense couldn’t stay on the field. Just another game of coulda, woulda, shoulda. Could have been up 21-3 at the half. Could have been up 28-3 after the 2nd half kick off. Could have not gone 3 and out after the incredible pick Barr had in overtime.

The good news is we get to do it all over agin next week at 3:05pm. Bad news is the weather will be crappy so you can’t go for a walk around the block during it.

Sorry, I have to vent:
1) How you can only get Thielen 2 receptions for 6 yards.
2) Zimmer may be a good defensive coordinator, but he is a mediocre HC.
3) Once again, Cousins cannot beat a good team.
Thanks, I feel better now.

The reality is- we were beaten on both lines. They had offensive push with their line and we didn't. We made some great individual plays...Cook's run, Jefferson's TD, two terrific interceptions, the kick off return, but really Baltimore dominated the line play after the first quarter.

Correct.

The Vikings are a blackhole at LG, C, and RG.

When you've got nothing good to say, just bring up Biden.

News flash bud, all politicians are liars.

So are you cool with lying?
In this case, I'm ok with lying. He was forced into this by being forced to take an unproven jab.

Oh, and as for bringing up Biden, I'm giggling like a little kid at you on this topic with all the cover you will give Oatmeal Brain for lying.

This was the killer. I was only watching peripherally on Red Zone but going 3-and-out after getting the ball in great field position, only needing a FG to win, was just plain unacceptable.

Souhan: Vikings offense and Harrison Smith deserve the blame for another loss​


On Sunday the Vikings produced a 50-yard touchdown pass, a 66-yard run, a successful fake punt, a kickoff return for a touchdown, 6.1 yards per offensive play, two interceptions of a former NFL MVP, two fourth-down conversions, and zero turnovers or missed kicks.

That's an ideal formula for victory.

If everyone shows up.

Harrison Smith didn't show up.

Neither did the Vikings' midgame offense.

Smith's unwillingness to get vaccinated and the offense's inability to function without a script or a sense of panic led to the Vikings losing 34-31 in overtime to the Baltimore Ravens.

The game would have been wildly entertaining if you weren't a Vikings fan experiencing a familiar sense of dread as another game slipped away.

The Vikings are 3-5. They are 10-15 since they won a playoff game in New Orleans. They are in danger of falling out of contention in what has always felt like a make-or-break season for coach Mike Zimmer, general manager Rick Spielman and quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Those three should be sticking pins in a Smith-shaped Voodoo doll today. He was as responsible for this loss as any of the players on the field.

Harrison hasn't made a play all year. His replacement picked a pass off.

Good one, Souhan.

Yea I think we saw Smith's replacement emerge today. A lot younger and A LOT cheaper.

Skol Vikes!!

this little contract thing might be an issue. I thought they basically paid Smith this summer to ensure he got the vaccine, but no such luck.

Without Hunter, they look as they did last season in which he was out. Porous.
