    Minnesota 55% Pass to 45% Run

    2006: Minnesota’s offensive performance last season made it one to forget, as their touchdown to interception ratio was pathetic at 13:20. Their QB’s accuracy made Rex Grossman look like Joe Montana. They were fortunate when they scored more than ten points last season. They should’ve used RB Chester Taylor more times than not.

    2007: Minnesota, considering they added Oklahoma RB Adrian Peterson, (7th overall in the draft) should run the ball a lot more. They will use the talents of Peterson to pair up with Taylor, to bolster an offense that was more unbearable to watch than a Richard Simmons exercise show. Look for the Vikes to make adjustments featuring the run game more, reversing 2006’s Run to Pass ratio.
    It seemed like the Vikings ran the ball more than that last year.

    I thought we were more balanced also. I guess it was because our passing game was also three yards a attempt. Looking for things downfield this year as teams stack the box to stop our two headed attack. T-Jack has a better arm than Brad, and will be able to get the ball in tighter spots. Still I think we are gonna run more, with play action. The real question is which reciever is gonna make a statement. I believe Troy is gonna shine this year with Mcmullen and Rice also stepping it up. Our tightend Shiancoe should be able to get downfield too.... Dang I'm ready for some Football.

    I think Wade is going to shine for us in the recievers dept....

    well remember guys, there were alot of 2nd halfs we were playing from behind.
    not by alot, but enough 3rd and long attempts to turn the ratio in the favor of the pass.


    and as for wade, i'm not buying this big breakout for him.
    i think he will play a pivotal role on 3rd downs but i'm not expecting him to be the guy who catches 80 for a 1000 yards and 7-10 tds.
    if we end up having a guy like that, one of the other guys are gonna have to step up; ie.williamson, rice. i just feel like wade is what he has been so far in the nfl. he's not gonna be our 2nd coming of cris carter.

    Interesting article!
    My fantasy football rankings have been adjusted

    How about 4 WRs with around 40 recpts each, average 500-600 yds; 4-8 TDs a piece?
    Add in a few screens that go in and a couple for the TEs and we're looking at around 30 passing TDs...?

    Well, maybe one of the WRs is MeMo, our no. 2 WR last year:

    Mewelde Moore 46 468 10.2 1
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    When we first signed him I thought he was a joke...As the off-season progress though, I'm really starting to think that he is going to be our guy.
    Hopefully TJack can find his open hands.

    If Williamson can catch this year. He will have a monster year.
    He has everything
    except sure hands.
    He's fast,runs good routes,and gets open.

    He just needs to hold on to the ball and not hold onto the guy he's blocking.
    What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. Its the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"

    The rushing attempts were really sporadic last year. 14 one game 44 another.
    It tailed off at the end of the year too, when we stopped paying as much attention.
    Interesting strategies Chili.
