    Default Minny Tribune

    Just read one of their game day stories (column?) and predictably, it was "The Vikes outplayed, out passed, out thised and that the Steelers all game, but two mistakes and a 'phanton tripping call' gave the game to Pittsburgh."

    Doesn't it take some athletic skill when two LBs run 77 and 82 yards with a pick and a fumble?

    Wasn't there a Pittsburgh touchdown wiped out by a very questionable call on the opposite side of the field from where the apparent Steeler touchdown was scored?

    Just who put all of that pressure on Mr. Favre?

    The pass interference all against Miller was terrible as well...

    Funny... every team that loses a close one to the Steelers always gets screwed by the refs.

    Regardless, that Miller call where Santonio scored a TD, that would have put the Steelers up 7-0, instead of 3-0 was fairly questionable.. It balanced out, if anything.

    I dont understand how a player is basically pushed into another player--which I thought happened on the Heath call--completely away from the ball that had NOTHING to do with the play and somehow a PI is called?

    The vik offense did outplay the Steeler offense.

    The Steeler defense outplayed both of them and that should have been the story.

    Fortunately, it all seemed to balance and (although I'm biased) I'd say the outcome was just.

    He tried to legwhip Deebo, how is that not called either way. The PI was a phantom call. On the play Mendy fumbled his facemask was grabbed, huh..no call on that one either.

    Early in the 2nd series or so for vikings. Refs missed a blatant illegal procedure call on the RT for the Vikes to. Their OL was moving all day long. I am so glad we beat farve so we don't have to hear about how great he is.

    I don't know when it happened, but I thought I saw their RT move on a successful pass play.

    You're right, nothing they or we can do about any of those calls now.

    A "W" is a "W."

    I hope Timmons just needs some rest for his ankle!

    But hasn't he already had significant ankle problems in his brief career?

    Let them whine..it is what it is...and I doubt that will be the story all week as far as the pundits are concerned.

    4 plays inside the 5 and you only run AP once and have to settle for 3...that should have been the Minny story line.

    True...although he'd been stopped cold on both 1st down tries.

    Honestly don't recall.... Was that what kept him out last year?... I don't remember.
