Master of field goals is pulling your strings.

Once upon a time there was a great band named Metallica that sang these lyrics “End of passion play, crumbling away, I’m your source of self-destruction” and once upon a time there was a Minnesota Vikings team that those lyrics couldn’t possibly describe.

That seems like such a long time ago.

Lately fans have grown all-to-accustomed to the last minute losses, poor play calling, and even poorer officiating that sometimes decides a game. Today, after 5 valiant field goals and stifling defensive game, another loss. In the bard’s tale of this Viking’s game, only one of the above recent failures applies, it was another unlikely last minute loss.

There are questions that fans and coaches alike must be asking, how can Adrian Peterson have such a great game and the team still gets an “L”, how can the defensive unit play so soundly for so long and the team still takes home an “L”, why didn’t the team score a touchdown with so many opportunities and so much run strength, and ultimately how can this season be saved?

Here are a few more questions while we’re at it.

Is Adrian Peterson learning what it’s like to be Barry Sanders?

Is it time to Free Frerotte? 

Is it possible that Brad Childress is becoming more unliked than Lars Ulrich?
