Shouldn't have tried for a punt block on 4th and less than 5 there. Bad call, bad execution.

Need red averages to tell me how smart they are now. Stupid team
Dumb penalty. When did I say the players were smart? Literally said Henry and Mac cost them a potential TD at the end of the first half. I said the timeouts were all correct. And that still holds.

Minnesota has already won time of possession. For the game.

Defense has to be tired.
Yeah, this is the underlining point. They can't get off the field, and they keep doing stupid things that keep Minnesota's offense out there

I'm not sure what to say. You want to say they're playing the better game and just making boneheaded mistakes. But maybe this is just who this team is. They just can't put it all together.

This game reminds me of the game where Gronk got held on the last play of the game, wa down for a game winning touchdown. Maybe against TEN? Or CAR? I remember thinking the scales were tipped against the Pats, not being called straight up

This team is so fucking stupid. Maybe the dumbest BB’s ever had. Just crushing penalties and mistakes.
Yep. I think last year was also uncharacteristically stupid.

Really sad to watch. Their record could be like the Vikings without some absolutely brutal brain farts.

14 points on special teams— not good
Special teams gave up 7 points, while being held on a punt return.

they’ve also had several good returns and most kickoff returns are sub 20.

the punt penalty was horrendous, but the D had plenty of room to make a stop.

They literally still have the ball because of this timeout. In fact, they will likely win the game because of it. Do you not see this yet?
dont you do finance or something? you would understand the marginal increase in 1st down odds is pretty small in comparison to end of game when you need them for a last drive. the particular outcome here does not change that its a bad timeout to take

In Joe Burrow's 1st year at LSU, Justin Jefferson dropped 1 or 2 passes every game that probably led to 2 losses.

It's amazing what he's done since. Absolute beast.

Fuck. No need for a punt block after they stopped them on 3rd. That was a stupid call from the sideline. Why risk what happened when you have an awesome returner?
Ill never understand this... you can never hit the punter at less than 5 yrds to a 1st.

Just fake the block for Ffs.. ya Kants

Stupid undisciplined mistakes don’t cost you aganist the the Jets and the Colts but they do against good teams like the Vikings. They have been making them all season. And we have to face a lot of good team in the next few weeks.

This game is reminding me of losses to the Bucs and Cowboys a couple years ago - surprisingly hanging with a high-powered opponent but just can’t make the key play.

I'm a little tired of Dungy talking about what a great coach Bill is by talking about how badly this team is coached

Can we stop with the slow screens?

Mac doesn't have the arm - by the time the receiver has it he has 2 defenders on him.
