Do you know who Gil Brandt is?
"I think what's happening is you're seeing a lot more blitzing and it's harder for people to block those blitzes," said Sirius NFL Radio host Gil Brandt, a former Dallas Cowboys executive. "There are also more speedy, athletic guys rushing the passer, and with all these sophisticated blitzes and guys playing them, teams aren't always picking up those schemes."
As I said in my post, it isn't just the Vikings, all teams are struggling with this. The Vikings today, are ranked 20th in DVOA (Pass protection) and thats with two backup gaurds playing the last couple of weeks.
Regular season totals, through Week 15
When Herrera and Hutch were both in there we were ranked 12th.
We have pass protection issues and it isn't just the OL that is the problem. It starts with the OL, trickles down to the package (and plays) sent in, is compounded by the pre-snap read and follow-on adjustments off of that read and then the execution.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

As far as the Vikings go, the offense is designed to get the quarterback killed.
Thats why its important for a WCO QB to have a quick release. Guys like Leftwhich, who has a slow windup/delivery just can't run the scheme.
When the fullback consistently routes to the flat while the tight end is in a pattern, it means the quarterback will need every linemen to make a perfect block and hope the blitz is not coming. We know the blitz will come and offensive linemen cannot handle defenders on every play, so the Vikings will fail more times than not - especially on third and long when extra pressure will almost certainly come.
Absolutely mind numbing to watch it happen.
If they would start to hit those guys alot more often, it would not only slow the pass rush down, it would negate it to the point our QB's wouldn't get hit as much.
For that matter, our offense would be effective again. Look at the game after PatsRandy was shitcanned. The Noodle dinked and dunked to his best career passing game (yards) and Monday night we saw Percy take one to the house that was a throw from the Noodle that maybe went 1 yard forward of the line of scrimmage.
Why we are looking deep all the time just mystifies me.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Think about it though. Who was the last QB groomed by the Vikings? Pepp. Look back before him. Brad Johnson in 92 (for those who track, I think he was a 7th or 8th round draft pick by the by). Maybe you could lump a Kramer or a Wilson in there but you really have to look deep to see were the Vikings have ever "Grown" a QB.
Probably why us fans don't understand the growing pains that are associated with it.
Something to think about......Is Eli a bad QB or is he still learning?Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

My guess, his play is gonna get his SB winning HC fired this year.
Doesn't mean that I don't like him. Just means that it takes time for these guys to eventually hit thier prime.
Elis problem is that he can't throw the ball in the cold very well. He needs to go to a team that doesn't play outside very much.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
