it was obvious earlly on that your guys were having trouble with the field. i noticed a lot of slips and loss of footing. this is not intended as smack talk but playing outdoors is becoming a serious concern for your team, if i were tice i would try and figure out a way to improve in that area.

I'll agree with that. We are not a good outdoor team at all. The field condition did suck.

Actually, we've got a lot of other things we're not really good at besides playing outdoors...like we're not a really good special teams-team...we're not a very good come from behind team...and definitely, we're not a very good defensive team, more so on pass defence that is...but there were lots of badly missed assignments on run defense too.

But congrats to the Bears...they played awesome and showed a lot of hunger and heart and we showed a lot of holes on O and D. Urlacher played incredible today...Bears are so lucky to have a guy like that.

Answer me this: At the beginning of the game the announcers were talking about how they were spraying down the field. WHY? I'm not blaming the loss on this, because there were plenty of mistakes and we didn't deserve to win, but why would they spray it down before the game? That just doesn't make any sense to me!

WORD, VKG. I was thinking the same thing but didnt want to post it and get trashed. Home Field advantage man, wet that field down, the vikings are a team of speed and they wont know what kleets to wear.

As soon as i heard it I thought WTF? I'm sure it was a bit of a strategy to slow the explosive offense down.

Well like I said I'm not blaming anything on it, I was just curious as to why they would do it. It just didn't make any sense!

fair point and does account for why we had slips at costly times. However having said that there was no excuse for our guys being in that position in the first place. Surely thats why there is are pre-game warm-ups, drills etc , pre-game is for checking out things such as that - especially for the road team.

That comes down to basic football savvy which you'd expect professional athletes to have.

talk about hitting the nail on the head :silent: we should ask why all the above was not checked on and before open toss?

I really don't see us winning a road playoff game outdoors.
