    Smith owns Smoot

    Sure, some of this was on Smoot's shoulders, but for the life of me I can't figure out why the coaching staff didn't do any mid-stream adjustments. Thank God the Vikings have a new coaching staff this year.

    sidenote:
    anyone else notice the similarities with our new uniforms and the panthers? (besides colors ofcourse), stripe on the pants and shoulders look almost identical, other than the stripiing coming to a point in the back.

    Well there was speculation that Smoot had pissed off Tice and was consequently hung out to dry as a result. It must be the only explanation because there were no adjustmensts made at all to try and help Smoot out against Smith that day.

    Re: Smith owns Smoot

    I have said this again and again. The coaching decisions in that game were more of the problem than Smoot was. Why in the hell didnt they roll some safety help over the top? Double Smith every once in the while? Drop someone, anyone, even a linebacker, back to cover mid zone, or pull Smoot off for better reaction time?

    I am with you Prophet. Thank God we have a new coaching staff.

    Well, Smoot wasn't the only one Smith left in his dust. No corner can cover him 1 on 1.

    The uni's aren't even close. There is no side stripe on the Carolina jersey. The stripe on the Car pants is a straight point, while the Vikes are curved more to look like a horn. The Car have the logo on the shoulder still, the vikes moved the norseman to the pants... just a few things off the top of my head.

    Re: Smith owns Smoot

    My biggest beef with Tice was that there were never adjustments. Good coaches turn the game into a chess match, adjusting to what the other team is doing - recognizing weeknesses in their adjustments and adapting. Tice's strategy was to always stick with the game plan.

    Yep. Stick to the game plan. Even when the other team knows the game plan, and knows how to exploit it...
