Well, if you are just listening to the game and they tell you "un-natural act" it can be kind of a strange image if you know what I mean. :D

Erasmus just decided to drop him after he got rid of the ball. It wasn't illegal, but it was pretty dirty to be honest. If Vick is seriously injured I hope our line blows Erasmus' knee out.

Again, I can't see the game but the announcers talked like he was blocked into him and fell on the ankle. They may show something on the Chiefs halftime report.

Good lord... Another block in the back penalty.

Random thought of the day: Reality TV needs to die. So you think you can dance? Dancing with the stars?, Nanny 911?, Really.

BTW - I think Vick is done for today with a knee sprain with a solid lead and no life in Minnesota's offense we might as well let him rest and get Schuab some reps.

TOUCHDOWN! Warrick Dunn on a 37 yarder. He was airborn for about 5 yards of that too.

Don't put him back in. Let him rest and don't risk further injury. Your running game and defense will continue to eat us up anyway.

Chris Cash has been a great pick up so far. He's been locking down his receiver and coming up and making some plays. I like him so far.

Great effort by Brady Smith to come across the length of the field and take out Culpepper as he threw.

Nope, nobody was blocking him, he just decided to take advantage of the free hit although the ball was long gone.

Cash looked great on that play & I think he might end up starting over Webster if he keeps playing like that & Webster keeps getting hurt. Our team has looked great but I think it's more of a case of their team being totally destroyed by injuries, inexperience, and no Randy Moss.

Kerney, Brooking, Coleman, and Smith all with sacks down.

Yet another illegal block in the back. I think that's every punt return now.

Errasmus (sp?) James is playing dirty today... Took out Vick (granted it was a legal hit). Then he hammers Dunn after he goes out of bounds.

There was no excuse for the hit out of bounds. Rookie or not. I just got to see the hit on Vick during the Chiefs halftime. While it was legal, I would have been upset had that happened to my Quarterback. It was a little late.

Sack #9.

I'd demand a trade if I was Culpepper that's 16 sacks in 2 games

Ha, Edinger almost shanked the field goal that would give them their only 3 points of the game.

Idiot Tice needs to take him out of there to protect him. Of course, at this point the backup would probably refuse to go in.

It's time for a complete overhaul of this team.

Of course having Burly and almost all of your defensive stars out out doesn't help much either.

It is looking like the Vikes where Moss' team.

Of course Kansas Viking you could probably win the NFC North with a 7-9 record. So you won't ever be out this year ;).

Chris Cash is making his case to start today. I don't want to go homer on him but he's looked darn good today. I feel good about him starting opposite of Hall if necessary. I'd like

Take another look at that OL of ours. I'm in serious doubt if we can win 7 games. It won't surprise me if Zygi fires Tice before the season is over, if not the Bye week.

Well, it's finally over. Good game guys. I thought this might be the type of game I would see today. You handed us a pretty good whipping and the way we played and prepared, deserved it.

I have seen this type of season before back in 2001. I believe this team will melt down as the season winds to an end and we will start over with a new staff.

Good luck this year. You look to be going back to the NFCC game again this year. With Philly being injured, you have a good shot at the big game. It's been fun today, just wish my team could have given you a little more of a game.

I wouldn't be so quick to pull the trigger on that one. Cash has had 2 very good performances the past two weeks, but 2 good games even under dire circumstances does not a starter make. But I do agree that if Webster did go down with injury again (and he probably will), I'm pretty comfortable with Cash as a short term fill-in. Let's see how he does vs. New England, where he'll probably be matched up a lot against Troy Brown, one of the best #3 receivers in the league.

This was a good game by the Falcons. It was one of those games that the Falcons should have won heartily and they did. A big confidence boost heading into next week. The issue now becomes will they repeat their mistake vs. the Seahawks and get a bit too complacent. They'll have to be on their A game vs. New England.

They were able to exploit the Vikings weakness of their front 7. The Vikes had some major injuries, and frankly don't have the talent at LB to deal with Vick.

Also the Falcons D-line and blitz preyed upon the Vikings line that looked terrible today.

I'm very happy with this performance, although I think the run defense still has to make significant strides since Week 1.
