Some of the other stuff has overshadowed a huge coaching blunder yesterday. The Vikings got the ball with around 1:30 left in the first half and were content to run the ball and go into half time. We called the first timeout, which was already very questionable since we had not forced a single punt to that point in the game. Then on second down, the Vikings got a good run to bring up 3rd and 1. Calling that second timeout was a huge mistake. We had shown no signs of being able to stop a 1 yard rush. Sure enough, when the Vikings go the first down, they realized they suddenly had decent field position, all of their timeouts, and still plenty of time to push for a FG. They **** near scored a TD, but even the 3 points they got was more than they would have if we'd not called that second timeout.
