Vikings In Full Meltdown Mode; Trail Raiders 24-7 At the Half

Adrian Peterson injuring his ankle was only one of many disasters that befell the Vikings in the first half. Let’s see, there was Chris Kluwe botching a hold on a field goal, taking three points off the board. There was the entire defense going in the tank and allowing the Raiders to go up and down the field at will. There was Lorenzo Booker fumbling a kick return. Christian Ponder throwing an interception in Raider territory. Ponder and Percy Harvin failing to hook up on a behind-the-line-of-scrimmage pass that was ruled a fumble for a ten-yard loss…

Things got out of hand is what I’m saying. This after the Raiders seemed to be in total meltdown mode themselves on the Vikings’ first drive. The difference between the Vikes and Raiders is, when the Raiders make mistakes and start going south, their coaches help them get their stuff back together. Leslie Frazier? I don’t think damage control is his long suit. If we’ve learned anything about this team this year it’s that once things start going downhill they just keep going. And going. And going. Yes the team is undermanned, but at some point the coaches bear some of the blame too.
