Vikings Blunder Their Way Through First Half, Trail Falcons By 17

The first half was a comedy of errors for the Vikings. You want atrocious secondary play? We got Benny Sapp, Tyrell Johnson and Marcus Sherels. You want injuries? We got Tyrell pulling his hammy and long-snapper Cullen Loeffler injuring his tailbone. You want guys playing out of position? We got Jared Allen having to take over long-snapping duties from Loeffler. You want predictable offensive design? We got Bill Musgrave calling the same screen pass to Percy Harvin fifteen times. You want dumb penalties? We got Phil Loadholt with holding and a false start, and Benny Sapp getting called for holding on a punt, and Christian Ponder getting called for illegal motion. Somehow the Vikings were able to make just enough plays on defense to keep the score from getting totally out of hand. Maybe they can rise up defensively in the second half like they did against the Raiders and give their offense a chance. Oh that’s right…the offense can’t do anything anyway. Dang it.
