Another tough loss

Defense did good (apart from 4 plays) special teams poor and offense challenged.

Way too many penalties

Big Cowboys presence in the stands and one of the biggest crowds of the season

Nice Hall of Fame event at half time.

Hello

Has the Vikings fans ever let away fans have a massive presence in the stadium?

As just read about Cowboys game but not seen the game yet.

Afraid so - it is not that unknown for someone to buy a season ticket and fund it by selling off one game to fund it. It is usually the Packers game and it can be a 60-40 Vikings split sometimes.

Difficult to find a positive from the last game.

It was so cold that our tailgate was moved to a downtown pub. It was good that we could get from the pub directly to the skyway system and use it to walk the 10 or so blocks to the stadium without going outside

Not many away fans at this one - I wonder what the week 17 atmosphere will be like as usually a few Bears fans make the trip.

Well it is not often you can tailgate in January without a coat.

Atmosphere at the tailgate was subdued.

I sit on the east side so had a great view of the protesters - and was there when they left - yes, I was one of those booing them.

Bears ran the ball too well for comfort but they turned the ball over at key times and the game evolved into any easy win at the end.

It looks like Hill might be useful for the OL - why didn't we see him earlier?

Anyone would have been better than TJ Clemmings, I would have thrown him in when we first claimed him as couldn't have been any worse. And in the end was much better.

Who is LT next season? It wouldn't surprise me if Kalil comes back, it also wouldn't surprise me if Kalil retires....!

Kalil isn't the answer, should try and get Whitworth in free agency.

Well we have new tackles via free agency but not sure that Reiff and Rimmer were who I was expecting:
Pity to see the Captain go but in Zim we trust. I also liked Ellison but good luck to him as that contract was too rich for me.

Looks like there is a deep draft for TE and RB and I hope a punter for the 7th round

Well preseason schedule for home games works for me and work so a trip west is on the cards.

I hope the regular season schedule is as good.
