In the Atlanta game in the 1st Qtr the Vikings had the ball on the 40yd line of Atlanta with a 4th and 1.
Now maybe I am being optimistic but with 2 guys being paid 5mil+ a apeice on the left side of the line. A 2 mil full back and 2 RB making another $5mil each I think we should have went for it.
If we cant make a 4th and 1 with the oline and rb that we have we are in some real trouble.
I realize that if we dont make it that they get the ball near mid field but to punt you only gain approx 20 yards ( Atl got the ball at the 12 on the punt).
Does anyone agree or do you think it was smart to play safe early in the game like Chilli did?
