    It is’nt even half time yet and the Referee’s have allready defeated our TEAM!
    We AGAIN were on our way to score another TD with Felton Taking the Ball to the Minnasota 10 yard Line when the Officials threw a Flag on Dominic Raiola for Holding WHEN THERE WAS NO HOLDING! He simply Fell to the ground!
    This League is a Disgrace.
    And so is anyone who stands behind this League. I really liked Schwartz when he first got here. But, now there is’nt anything that he can say?
    He believe’s in the NFL! ( Not Frikin Legit!)

    Hill is good between the 20 yard lines, but has no idea what he is doing in side the red zone. The Minnesota should pay is salary. It is hard to win when your quarterback is the defensive best player.

    It would appear that you have no quarterback, no strong running back and the defense back field is to small. The only good thing is that you should get the number 1 pick again when you do not win a game all year.

    The coach can only do so much.

    I don’t know about everyone else out there,but until we win a game that 0-16 will be dangling there…could it happen again?…I know there’s a lot of football left to go but one more road loss and that will 3 straight years without a road win!!!…are you kidding me…nothing seems to every go right with this team.
