20 of 53 passing. 3.6 yards per attempt. No touchdowns. One interception. A passer rating of 40.6. That's Josh Freeman's line from Monday night against the Giants. If you watched the game (and bless your heart if you did because wow was it bad), you saw the futility firsthand. But, not content to merely say this was an all time stinker, I wanted to try to contextualize it somehow. So, using the player game finder at Pro Football Reference, I looked for games since 2002 (when the NFL went to the current division setup) to see how bad this performance really was.Read more →

  • We don't have a QB problem. We have a serious coaching problem. Wake up Ziggy.
  • I have to agree, Swede. Too early to work him into the offense. Then, when he drives the bus into the ditch, just pull him out and put in Ponder or Cassel. Or even Joe Webb. Or one of the cheerleaders. Even if a person agrees that it was a good idea to try...when it was obviously off track, make a change. Do you drive to the store in low gear? Shift!
  • how can you play a qb with 12 days of prep. its crazy. time to get a coach thats big time and pay a little more
  • I've never liked Leslie Frazier as a coach and whoever is running this Train Wreck (front office) should also be fired. It's very odd, throughout the more recent history of the Vikings, the horrendous choices management has made. Who are these ppl? Who hires them? Have they no Football knowledge? Get rid of the coach, get rid of the front office, trade AP for obvious reasons. Start Over, this thing stinks
  • This coaching staff did exactly the same thing to Joe Webb. They put him in for the last game of the year and he embarrassed himself and the team. I have said it before and I'll keep saying it, the Vikes have incredible talent. When you have great talent and you're losing, it is the coaching. Frazier is a nice guy but can't think outside the box and he and his staff apparently do not let their QBs think outside the box either. Coaches have to go. Nice guys finish last.
  • Vikings have every right to complain about this nickname! The team, coaches and "Vikings" are degrading to real Vikes!!LOL
