Vikings “win” the first Andrew Luck elimination game

Minnesota Vikings v Kansas City Chiefs Getty Images

After blowing double-digit leads for three straight weeks, the Vikings nearly came back from a 12-point deficit to beat the Chiefs.

But the Vikings failed.  And in failing they’ve fallen to 0-4, giving them an edge over the Chiefs in the quest for Andrew Luck.

Of course, there’s no guarantee that the Vikings would take Luck if the Vikings “earn” the first pick in the draft, especially since they used the 12th pick in the draft to take Christian Ponder.

And that’s another reason to put Donovan McNabb on the bench, and to see what Ponder can do.  If he can’t turn things around, then maybe it makes sense to, as the kids say, “Suck for Luck.”

Ryan Succop kicked five field goals for the Chiefs, but the scoring was completed with a 52-yard touchdown pass from Matt Cassel to Dwayne Bowe.

Adrian Peterson gained 80 yards on 23 carries for the Vikings, and McNabb threw for 202 yards, completing 18 of 30 passes.  Cassel threw for 260 yards, with 107 to Bowe and 91 to Steve Breaston.

The Vikings got to the Kansas City 41 with two minutes to play.  But four straight incompletions from McNabb ended it.

    They could get a kings ransom for the first pick and still hang onto Ponder.

    it’s only week 4, how is it an andrew luck elimination game? this is a dumb post

  3. mbodvig says: Oct 2, 2011 4:52 PM

    At what point do they finally bench McNabb

  4. stampnhawk says: Oct 2, 2011 4:53 PM

    Bring back Tavaris!
    As bad as Seattle may be, lol at the Vikes fans who assumed losing Jackson and Rice was addition through subtraction.
    Well, the addition in McNabb hasn’t really turned out.
    Maybe he can re-hook up with the Dream Team coach next year.
    LA may not want the Vikings now…

  5. canadianvikingfaniii says: Oct 2, 2011 4:54 PM

    What a terrible team. It is almost as if the only players actually competing are Peterson, Harvin and Shiancoe and AP cannot get any room to run because our Run blocking is absolutely terrible. Even though McNabb did show some flash he still showed why every other team got rid of him…

    Of course knowing Fraiser we will ride McNabb for the rest of the season which will have no benefits from Ponder who will only learn from McNabb how to over throw or under throw receivers. We need a head coach who gets angry and lights a fire under the players, we also need a competent Offensive Coordinator.

    Sick about hearing this suck for Luck BS. It may actually make a little sense, but it’s unbelievable and would be borderline collusion for a team to throw games.

  10. jhorton83 says: Oct 2, 2011 5:00 PM

    The biggest problem with the Vikings is the playcalling. Bill Musgrave is an awful offensive coordinator and always has been. The team will go nowhere as long as he’s in charge of the offense.

  13. deconjonesbitchslap says: Oct 2, 2011 5:02 PM

    haha. that was THE only winnable game they had. 0-16. they have to watch Ponder throw 3 picks a game for 2 years now. they pannicked with that pick. and it will doom them for 20 years. they’ll be the team that passed on Andrew Luck.

    pack your bags for LA. MN doesn’t want any MORE pathetic sports teams. The more we can get rid of, the better. Thank heavens the NBA is failing as we speak. no more twolves is a good thing.

    stop funding gopher sports programs. they are a waste of money. Twins…you’re next. your players are old and injured. back to the septic tank you go. The Wild…well, the NHL has been dead for 15 years anyways, so nobody notices.

    If Andrew Luck is available and the Vikings pass on him it’s just one more choke for this cursed franchise!

    The NFL is now, more than ever, a QB driven league and if you don’t got a good one your not going anywhere.

    Kalil, Blackmon, Burfict are all great players and each would help a lot but without that QB it wouldn’t matter. Ponder will never be as good as Luck. He could always be traded away to a QB needy team like Kolb or Schaub and if not what’s wrong with just keeping him as a backup until his rookie contract is up?

    They could still get a quality LT with their high pick in round 2 or by trading up back into round 1 too.

    No way around it. My Vikings are pathetic this year. While I’ll continue to support them- though it is very tough to- I am rooting for the Lions this year.They are the only other team in the division that i can’t hait, and their fans deserve a winner.

    ———————-

    That’s why they need to start Ponder NOW and see what they have in him. If he doesn’t live up to expectations by the end of the year, keep Luck and dump Ponder for a 2nd or 3rd rounder. I’m sure regardless of how he performs, he’d still make a decent backup for teams needing a bit more depth.

    See ya McNabb. Was NOT nice knowing ya. You were who the Skins and Eagles fans said you were.

    Exactly! I’m so sick of these second rate OC’s. First Bevell and now Musgrave… Why can’t we get a real offensive mind in Minnesota?!?!

    We need to hire a real head coach too! Bill Cowher, Jeff Fisher, Jon Gruden anybody? We should’ve nabbed John Fox when we had the chance…

  23. wipurplepride says: Oct 2, 2011 5:23 PM

    2nd most penalties and 2nd most passes under duress is not a good recipe for success either…

    ————-

    I think Frazier knows how a hurry up offense works but it’s a little tough to run that when you have an out of shape and out of juice QB. A LOT more of this loss falls on McNabburger than anyone else this time around.

  26. ballergac says: Oct 2, 2011 5:40 PM

    Draft Luck. Trade Ponder to Colts, Seahawks or a team in need of a young future starter that may have to sit another year or two.

  27. sikoix says: Oct 2, 2011 5:45 PM

    I’m ready to see Ponder. I never would have thought so even 2 weeks ago, but the Vikings are going nowhere this season. It’s not like McNabb might suddenly begin to recognize his potential. Frazier needs to mix things up somehow to salvage his HC career also. He’s starting to remind me of Mike Tice (as a guy Viking fans had liked for a while when made HC, but was clearly out of his depth).

  30. nfldoc says: Oct 2, 2011 6:03 PM

    Even with Ponder, Luck is the 1st pick of the draft. However, the Colts, Dolphins, Seahawks and Broncos will be competing all year for the #1 pick. Vikes might be looking at 2-14 which could be worthy of #1…too soon to tell.

    —————————

    Huh? What do you mean “knowing Frasier”? The guy hasn’t even coached a full season and you’re acting like it’s become a tendency to somehow stubbornly refuse to pull a veteran player for a rookie. You Vikes fans are hilarious. You too Favre’s side and turned on Childress at the drop of a hat. Then you get Frasier in there like you were (stupidly) screaming for in a mid-season replacement. And now you’re 4 games into his first season and you’re already getting irrational over him. Next week you’ll be calling for his head.

    And somewhere Chilly is pointing and laughing hysterically.

  32. slickster35 says: Oct 2, 2011 6:35 PM

    Still in shock here that a hold was called on an O-lineman going up against Hali. Although it was just one, and he is literally held EVERY DOWN (and for good reason) I’ll take it.

    Even though we beat the Vikes today, we need a QB worse than you do. The clock couldn’t run out fast enough. Cassel will NEVER be as good as McNabb ever was, which was just above average in his prime.

    I don’t think either of these teams have to intentionally suck for Luck, it’ll just happen.

  33. fwippel says: Oct 2, 2011 6:38 PM

    While McNabb has to share part of the blame today with his lack of accuracy, the offensive line is probably the bigger problem, along with lack of discipline.

    I hate this for Leslie Frazier, but he needs to do a better job of keeping this team from commiting stupid penalties. And this also shows what happens when you neglect an known area of need by not adding lineman during the draft of FA.

    But I really think it’s time for McNabb to take a seat, and for the Vikings to find out what they have in their two young QBs. Be it Webb or Ponder, they’re not going to do any worse than McNabb has done.

  34. kennyrogerschicken says: Oct 2, 2011 6:47 PM

    Where’s pervy? Is he already not posting anymore? It’s just not football season without the inane ramblings of that moron. I guess selling out for Favre wasn’t a great idea, huh?

  36. wadi79 says: Oct 2, 2011 6:57 PM

    I am sick of this team. If Leslie doesn’t bench McNutt and put in Ponder, I am done watching this garbage for the year. It’s not helping the stadium issue starting 0-4. My jerseys are back up in the attic for the season.

  37. MichaelEdits says: Oct 2, 2011 7:14 PM

    McNabb’s a bit laissez faire. Is he having fun out there?

  38. heavythumb says: Oct 2, 2011 7:16 PM

    Ponder is not ready yet, but Joe Webb on the bench is a waste of young talent.

    No more Mcbadd, please!
    Joe Webb should start next week.

    ————————————————–
    BUT (unless you get a FIRST round pick) trading Ponder for a 2nd or 3rd just makes the Vikings GM look stupid. WHY did you draft Ponder in the first round just to trade him for a 2nd round pick?? that’s a bad investment. Honestly, i do NOT want this team getting Luck and i think it wouldnt be fair to poor ponder to backup Luck (no one will likely trade a 2nd for him, 3rd maybe).

    Lovin’ Every Minute of It! Childress might have been a bit inept as a coach, but at least he wasn’t completely inept! This is kind of scary though, I hope the Vikings don’t try to get Bret Bielema from the Badgers.

  58. brewdogg says: Oct 2, 2011 11:54 PM

    Am I the only one who thinks that a true #1 WR would make a difference here? They have no go-to weapon in the passing game right now. Harvin is deadly when he gets the ball in his hands, but getting it in his hands is the trouble. Jenkins is a fine complement, but he isn’t the guy the QB looks to when he needs to get a 1st. And Berrian is…..Berrian.

    So how about we keep Luck in the back of our mind but start thinking about what Justin Blackmon, Alshon Jeffrey, or Michael Floyd could do for Ponder next year. In my little fantasy world, they maneuver that 1st overall (hypothetically) into one of those 3 WRs and whichever LT drops out of the top 5, either Kalil or Jonathan Martin.

    Then again, they have lost their first 4 games by a total of 19 points, 3 against teams that look like serious playoff teams. I see half a dozen games coming up that could easily be wins if the ball bounces right for them, making the whole argument moot. 0-16 teams don’t take playoff teams to double-digit halftime leads on a consistent basis…..

  59. pwrback2 says: Oct 3, 2011 12:03 AM

    DMac had chances for first downs, he could have ran for one instead overthrew the wr. The last series he had no pressure at all and he missed…time to move on. Webb or Ponder would work for me, at least they have an excuse having the reps.

    Sacrifices have to be made, and we are rolling out our new Squander Ponder effort. Many of us thought Ponder was a reach when we drafted him, and now that we have him we need to try him out and see what he can do for us. But not on the field. Let’s put Ponder over a tank of water and let fans throw balls at a target to dunk him, we’ll call it ‘The Luck Tank’. All proceeds will go towards drafting Andrew Luck next April.

    Tank you for participating.

    In Luck We Suck

    In God We Trust is on our fiat US currency, and trust and faith is about all you get with a fiat dollar, but a new Vikings’ strategy can offer some real rope-a-dope hope for our future. We’re going to need to lose a lot of games, though, to accomplish our goal, so let’s focus on sucking the rest of the season to be assured of that first draft pick in 2012. This won’t be too hard for us to do because we already really do suck. We just have to keep it going and make it look like we’re really trying to win. Conspiracy theorists are convinced we started this plan long before the season began, and by the time the Vikings start to win again, with Luck, they’ll be in their new stadium in L. A.

    Spread the word, In Luck We Suck.

    not only overthrowing and underthrowing….. but throwing late. there was a detroit highlight where Berrian did a great job settling in between 3 defenders. berrian had stopped running before mc5 released the ball. if he would have thrown the ball while berrian was still moving it could’ve been a very large gain and possibly 6. but the overthrow is hard to bring in when you are at a standstill. maybe, berrian should’ve continued to run, … but the throw was late.

    @ purpwalk the winner of the dunk tank should start against AZ. …. just saying.

    Ok and the Vikings have won 1. So again I ask, what title have the Lions won that the Vikings havent?
    (hint – you should do a bit of research before trying to throw a few shots)

    No way around it. My Vikings are pathetic this year. While I’ll continue to support them- though it is very tough to- I am rooting for the Lions this year.They are the only other team in the division that i can’t hait, and their fans deserve a winner.

    ***You shouldn’t hait anybody big fella. It shows a complete lack of sophistication. It is nice to see that you have a trace of sense in noticing that the Queens are pathetic. Welcome to the club. The rest of us all knew that back in August smart guy. We also knew that the Packers were really good…..something you argued against for weeks. I am guessing you are ready to admit the error in your ways on that one too?

    ============================
    Uff. I guess the old adage is true that if you speak a morons name- they reappear magically.

    You’re going to lecture me on sophistication?
    That’s like Robert Plant lecturing on original musical compositions.
    Quit revising history- i never said the Packers were not good- i said they werent as good as you thought they were- big difference.
    If you don’t remember the schooling you got- I called you out for making predictions in August.
    They have only played 4 games- plenty of ball left for them lose games.

    It must suck for you to have to lie to post against me- i can’t say as I blame you- it’s the only chance you have of not looking like an imbecile.

    Oh Pauly, Pauly, Pauly……you don’t like to look bad, do you? Listen my friend, I remember your stupid rants. You clearly defended the Queens and were pretty adamant that they would be at least a .500 team. What is worse, is you argued that those of us that predicted the Pack were going to be really, really good….. were idiots.

    See Paul, what you don’t get is that Aaron Rodgers is a very good QB…..probably the best in the league right now. And the Green and Gold also have a really, really good WR corps. Their OL is decent…..and they have the best TE in the game when healthy.

    Then, on defense they have some really good players and good depth. The loss of Collins and Neal has proven to be significant…..as is to be expected. But their offense is so good, that they still have been in complete control of their season.

    Funny…..you claim they have only played four games and therefore they could still stumble. That is prime evidence of your complete lack of knowledge in this game of football. See Paul…..they have been blowing teams away. They have looked THAT good. Who is going to beat them? Atl? Maybe. But they are five point favorites on the road…..in Atlanta. That means something. I would have to draw a f’n picture to explain it to you though.

    You know……your mother must have dropped you on your head when you were a young child……..multiple times……..on purpose…….probably because you’re so ugly. And stupid.

    Keep it coming though pal. Your ignorance seems to flow…..and is humor for all of the rest of us. You are the cream of the crop of the Idiot Viking Fans….and you never disappoint.

    I didnt say Super Bowls and neither did you. My question was, what titles have the Lions won that the Vikings havent. Both the Lions and the Vikings have won NFL championships. Your screenname lists the total championships the Packers have won but it does not include the 1 championship the Vikings have won. Either you switch your numbers to reflect SB wins or put a 1 on the Vikings column for NFL Championships. You choose.

    I’m not going to bother posting all your idiotic crap.

    Let me just say that you haven’t had anything new to say in months- it’s the sam dumb crap, post after post after post after post.

    You have used the same idiotic joke about 15 times now- it must be the only one you know- too bad it was never funny in the 1st place.

    I really don’t care if i look bad to people on here- i don’t know anyone. I do expect YOU not to have to lie about what I said to TRY to prove your points- you can’t- trust me I know. Therfore, you really have nothing of merit to say.

    And youir point of because they won 4 in a row, so that means they aren’t going to stumble at all?

    Brilliant take Einstein!! There is a reason only 1 team has ever gone undefeated. Mccarthy doesn’t impress me as a guy who IF they are in that position- will care about that. That’s one reason it won’t happen.
    i’m not going to waste anymore time- you are willfully ignorant and football intelligence negligent.
    Seriously- seek out some help. I get that youre the worlds biggest Packer homer- but you make your fellow fans look bad- notice how none rush to your defense?
    Go ahead and post more drivel- the same drivel- you know you can’t help yourself.

    Just know that everytime you post to me- you are proving to me and everyone else that you are my b!tch and that I have you jumping through hoops.

    Cmon, dance for me.

    Oh Pauly, Pauly, Pauly. That is the same line you were using at the Brass Rail last night…..I know…..one of my friends was there and saw you.

    Chill out dude. Don’t get so excited just because the Vikes blow.

    So now you are claiming that the Pack won’t go 16-0 because McCarthy will rest them in the last game of the season. My, my, my how you have come around. You must have earned your GED in the last few weeks.

    I do see that you seem to have a bit of a temper. Just because…….. I clearly remember you picking the Vikes to be good and calling Packer fans idiots for predicting our squad would have a great year. Sorry pally…..I have a very good memory.

    Listen….why don’t you go out and get a nice bottle of Chablis……play some Elton John…..and invite over some of your friends. The Vikings horrible season has clearly gotten to you.

    Are you sure your mom didn’t throw you on the floor……I thought she just dropped you???
