The Vikings almost had a punt blocked, and Detroits' successful fake punt almost costed the Vikings the game. Thankfully Tate went to the Eagles, and thankfully the D put down the clamps.

And thankfully the Vikings have players playing well on special teams that can keep the weakness of Richard Solomon [my nickname for Mike Prayfor] at bay.

Let's hope Sherels, Wile and Bailey can all stay healthy, so the Vikes' 2nd greatest weakness to Waynes isn't exposed.


That's tricky man. The whole post sounding minimally sane, then you hit us with the last sentence all Marty like.

The very first time I saw Detroit get an easy pass play, where the coverage was soft, not surprisingly, someone with long hair.

Guess who ?

Waynes.

He is not horrible, just a weakness anytime the Vikings pass rush lightens up.

Rhodes and Hill would be fine at CB for next year, with Hughes in the slot. The hitman, and probably Kearse at safety, that would be pretty strong.

Yep, Mark.

It's funny how our ST coach gets a hold of a halfway decent kicker and turns them into quivering pieces of shit.

Our STs have been a joke for years under this guy. The only time they looked good was when we had an athletic freak named Patterson making him look good.

I agree Priefer probably has to go.

But Walsh was a quivering POS when he got here and then was awesome and then reverted back to his old ways.

In hindsight, we probably should have given Carlson more time(didn't help that he admitted his confidence was shot).

Good situation for him in Oakland. No pressure kicking for a one win team as opposed to kicking for what was thought to be a Top 5 team.

Locke punted better for Detroit than he did here. I think a fun experiment would be to bring Carlson back and send Priefer to Oakland - purely for scientific research.

Not really a defense of Priefer but is Locke still in the league?

Of course he isn't but the point remains that he increased his net average to 42.2 yards per punt with Detroit - a full three yards better than his previous season's best of 39.2 which was of course his rookie year. Priefer is poison.

I think Priefer is just an @sshole, and that leads to guys playing nervous for him, instead of playing their hearts out and playing well.

And some of that nervousness can also spread to other parts of the team.

It would be a plus to get rid of Priefer, just like getting rid of Richard Solomon was a plus.

Even if we were the #1 team in the NFC with HFA locked up, you almost have to can him to send a msg. That missed FG just made me LOL. I couldn't help it. It was so obvious he was going to miss. Like it or not this team is not going to play its way out of this mess. It's been in their heads since the NO 2nd half. Something HAS to happen to shake it up. It's not going to work itself out no matter what Zimmer says/does.

We fought back and tied it up yesterday and Brady and Co went something like 6 plays for 90 yards to say 'aint happening bitches' and we crawled back in to our hole. No heart and the D has been that way forever. Since that NO game they've never fought a real team.

Who were our gunners yesterday?

That one punt the only ones within 15 yards when Edelman caught it were Brothers and Weatherly. Horrible.

Minnesota gave up on Daniel Carlson after two games and three missed kicks against the Packers, wilting under the pressure of a franchise cursed with kicking woes and releasing the rookie they traded up to get in this past year's NFL Draft.

The move has been a disaster.

Carlson has made 9-of-10 field goals with the Raiders – including a game-winner on the road against Arizona – and is a perfect 7-of-7 on extra points. Things are good for the rookie, not so much for the guy the Vikings replaced him with.

Billed as one of the most accurate kickers in NFL history, Dan Bailey has made just 72.9 percent (16-of-22) of his field goals with the Vikings – the lowest percentage among all NFL kickers with at least 15 attempts.

His six misses are the second-most in the NFL, trailing only Mason Crosby of the Packers, who has one more miss on seven more attempts (75.9 percent).

Bailey's latest miss was a 48-yarder he hooked wide left in the first quarter of Minnesota's loss to the Patriots. He's now 3-of-7 on kicks from 40-49 yards this season, a miserable statistic from a range that he had missed just five times from in his entire career before joining the Vikings.

Maybe it's time to accept as fact that Vikings kickers are cursed, or that whoever is in charge of hiring kickers has no idea what they're do. We're looking at you, special teams coordinator, Mike Priefer.

I've not been that big on the "fire MPhhherrrer" bandwagon but, at this point, something has to give. I'm not even talking about the missed kicks (specifically). There is some ST's head scratcher's every damn week. It's damn near comical at this point. Change just for change is not always the answer but some accountability is in order (IMO).

Not too late to join the bandwagon, we are right, and the numbers are growing.

Fire Priefer now.

I wouldn't trust Carlson, and he probably won't get many pressure kicks in Oakland real soon, a winning kick over Arizona is no big deal, they suck.

I would like to see how Bailey performs with a different, likely better special team's coach.

There has to be a connection between the failure of Carlson when he was here and his success now, and Bailey's success in dallas and his problems with us. I currently have some concerns about our coaching staff in general, but I am really worried about our special teams units.

Wanting Priefer fired is scapegoating, just like wanting Richard Solomon fired c. 1998, the real problem is at the top.

It's time to replace Zimmer.

BINGO.

I said it before the article. Good Kickers come here and become quivering piles of jello. That's coaching...nothing more.

Preifer should be let go.

Zimmer, not ready to go there yet. Preifer for sure.
