Post What is wrong with the Vikings and Colts?
I am sure fantasy owners want to know. Favre got GB back on track slightly. The Colts are surely the biggest surprise, since they have essentially the same personnel.

The Colts are 2-0 aren't they?

No I meant the Colts. Manning was approaching 50 TDs at one point last season. What does he have this year. The Ravens and Jags have good defenses, but their O numbers are in the bottom half of the league. For fantasy owners that must be distressing. :wink:

I picked up Boller and Lewis, who both have been horrid. Also, I have the Ravens D in one league...which has also been absolutely pathetic...nearly 50 points given up in 2 games? Where's all those PB'ers at?

i think we saw why the packers were so bad. the ravens are using a garbage QB right now and there RB spent the offseason in jail not prepping for football. Still they have lost to the Colts and the Titans (underrated with MVP McNair back).

Vikings coach Mike Tice talked in the sideways manner familiar with coaches in his Monday media session, but the location where he placed the blame for the season's second loss could not have been more clear: Daunte Culpepper's lap.

Daunte Culpepper played Sunday's game at Cincinnati despite an injured right knee that has caused mild concern within the Vikings organization. Mike Tice indicated the injury occurred during the season-opening loss to Tampa Bay. Culpepper was not listed on the injury report because the injury did not force him to miss any practice time.

Mike Tice insisted Monday he has not decided how -- or if -- he will restructure the Vikings' offensive coaching arrangement, a day after his team narrowly avoided a shutout in its 37-8 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Tice appeared to be calling plays late in Sunday's game, but as of Monday afternoon, offensive coordinator Steve Loney said he had not discussed the issue with Tice.


-- Minneapolis Star Tribune



As far as I'm concerned the thing that's wrong with the Vikings is Mike Tice.

I believe he'll be fired at the end of the season regardless of what Wilf says now. When the owner has to defend the coach it's the beginning of the end.

Vikings | Wilf Stands Behind Tice
Tue, 20 Sep 2005 20:06:59 -0700

The Star Tribune reports at the press conference to announce the Minnesota Vikings new stadium deal Tuesday, Sept. 20, owner Zygi Wilf was asked if head coach Mike Tice's job was in jeopardy. His simple reply was "No." Wilf said he talked to Tice and he expects "good results as the season progresses."


He's already left himself an out.
