Vikings embarrass themselves on Monday Night Football: Top 20 tweets

:::: UPDATE :::: Josh Freeman's concussion means Ponder's likely return: Top 10 tweets

My God, that was bad.

Last night, the Vikings offense was a dumpster fire of epic proportions, with new quarterback Josh Freeman putting forth a time capsule-worthy display of inaccurate passing ("20 for 53" could become the new "41 Donut") during the Purple's pathetic 23-7 loss to the Giants.

MORE COACHING PLEASE: Sure sounds like Spielman told Josh Freeman what to say during QB's introductory interview

It was so terribly ridiculously awful, it was masochistically entertaining. And you know what else was entertaining? Watching people on Twitter rip Freeman, Frazier, Spielman, Zygi, Dennis Green, Mike Tice, Red McCombs, Bud Grant, the cheerleaders, and everyone else associated with the Vikings franchise during and after the game. In fact, it was so entertaining and the tweets were so voluminous that we're doubling the length of our tried and true "Top 10 tweets" format for this one, and it was still hard to choose just 20.

So, without further ado, below the jump are the funniest tweets we saw ripping the Purple.

These are pretty lame. The overthrow the Syria Government and staph infection one was the best. No.5 was good to.

That is a lot of pressure on a 25 year old on MNF, for sure.

I think I'm not sure what to think about Josh Freeman, as I heard him refer to his being college educated, like that somehow made him more able to be prepared to play, which clearly was not the case. He started profusely sweating and looked like a deer caught in the headlights, as soon as the NYG lead opened up.

I have been a avid fan since the mid 60's. Very disappointed. I understand getting this guy game experience, but I thought the Idea of Football was to win the game! I think Fraser is a decent coach but he needs to learn when to get off a guys back. The switch should have been made at Halftime, it was so obvious! Maybe he has a future but he needs a few more weeks to learn the system. They played a salary not a man.

Yeah, as a life long fan it is so up and down. There has been many good Viking teams throughout the years that can stand up to any other NFL team on most any given game day. BUT I think the club meaning the owners, front office and coaches have never really had their shit all the way together. And that's how we get so many flat tires. As far back as I can remember and in my humble opinion.

The only was that the Vikings are "our team", is that we are the suckers that are going to buy the stadium for their millionaire owner.
