Well we are still # 1 in our division.
I will say this the second half of the game looked better than the first half.
We are not getting pressure on the QB, we had horrible tackling (past two games), and some coaches decisions on Defense are questionable. Only rushing 3, why not kick a pooch kick at the end of regulation instead of into end zone. That would take off 4-5 seconds and they still get the ball on the 20-25 yard line, didn't use the last TO to "freeze" the kicker, etc. Again I am not saying Zimmer is horrible but there are some more questionable calls.
The O-Line looked not too bad. Two of the sacks were because Bradford didn't get rid of the ball or didn't step up in the pocket. But yes... 1 out of 3 games they didn't look horrible.
People will want to blame walsh..... Yes he did miss an extra point.... But the blocked FG.... the line. We also didn't come away with points twice in the red zone. Forth and inches and Asiata doesn't try to leap, stretch, etc for that extra few inches. He also didn't hit the holes hard for the past three weeks either. Bradford sack, penalty, etc. I mean good QB's when they get sacked most of the time they are moving towards the line of scrimmage. So only take a 5 yard loss not a 10 yard loss.
So again walsh's miss was big....but there are many things you can point at for this loss.
I mean look at the last play.... Rhodes goes in with a flying shoulder instead of a tackle. He tried to make a sideline "highlight reel" hit instead of just hitting him. Smith played like crap.... I mean Ebron had 100 yards, missed tackles, etc.
But again.... all hope isn't lost. We are still 1/2 game ahead of Detroit and winning the division. Things looked better in the second half than the previous 10 quarters of football.
I will say this.... I need to see how they play against the Redskins before I start to say, "go wild and screw football".....lol. For now it is still Go Vikings and Go Wild.
