Grading out middle of the pack is not a food grade unless you are satisfied with having a losing team. Middle of the pack blocking doesn't get you far in the playoffs.

For the most part, though, everyone seems to be saying our OL or DB's suck when in fact they didn't suck and they didn't suck with our backups in.
What they should be saying is about the same crap they spew forth about the PUKERS and how much better they will be just based on getting their injured back this year.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Re: Preview Capsules Of Each NFL TeamBottom Line
The only clear strength on this team is the Adrian Peterson-led rushing attack. Everything else has been downgraded over the last two years.
Wow, found this one looking at what people were saying about the PUKERS.....
I'm not sure if I can find one thing he says good about the team except for a brief comment on AD.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Re: Preview Capsules Of Each NFL TeamBut I would be careful about putting that general philosophy in the same category of what Childress ran in his early years with the Vikings. From a pure football perspective, Musgrave's scheme is inherently different than Childress'."Well, our language is based more on the Ron Erhardt system. Of the three different systems that have withstood the test of time in the NFL, you could count Don Coryell's number system, of course Paul Brown and Bill Walsh's West Coast offense system, and Ron Erhardt's system, which has been run for years, with the Pittsburgh Steelers, now with coach [Ken] Whisenhunt in Arizona. Of course it's being run in Atlanta with Mike Mularkey, and portions of it are being implemented in New England, and with the Giants. So our offense will be rooted in that base language."
In case your intersted. I posted some stuff and we had a brief discussion about the actual differences/nuances in the schemes in this thread.

Rough as last season was and distracting as Favre became, the Vikings are going to sorely miss their ďintrepid part-time leader.Ē Whatís about to be discovered is that Favre camouflaged a heck of a lot more problems than he caused.
With Brett Favre gone, Minnesotaís weaknesses will rise to the surface. Itís not that Favre is that much better than Donovan McNabb, itís that his style of play was particularly accommodating. Unless McNabb can consistently zing lasers off a one-step drop (something thatís hard to picture the methodical veteran doing), Minnesotaís offensive line will be exposed as one of, if not the, worst in the N.F.L.
He did back you up on Edwards later on though.
This guy is pretty tough on his evaluation of the Vikes, but it actually wasn't that bad of a read. Not completely out of line as new players impact is yet to be proven.

I enjoyed the read. My biggest concern with our offense is our line. We need some help there still. I also feel, the o line will be our biggest weakness all season...Urghhhhhhh
I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.
