    Big plays passing Vikings by of late

    [size=13pt]Jim Souhan: Big plays passing Vikings by of late [/size]

    Under Brad Childress, the Vikings have shown little imagination in the passing game, a no-no in the modern NFL.

    Thats a darn solid article, it basically somes up my thoughts on Childress and what could possibly happen if we do end up winning enough games for him to retain his job. I want to beat good teams bottom line and if we can start doing that I'll have alot more confidence in Childress. New Orleans is a beat up injured team but still decent we need to start there and work our way through the rest of the schedule.

    Although I agree with the article, I just can't be against my team on a Sunday (or Monday). No matter what happens, I am purple when we play. To pull against us would be insanity.

    Never will I ever be able to want to lose... WTF. I want to get a winning streak going now, hopefully we will see that offense get better also. Way to stir the pot Souhan. I think we are starting to show improvement in the passing game and if we had some healthy recievers we might even see some 300 yard passing games this year......

    I think you are deliusional.
    Our passing game sucks, throwing for 266 is a record for this team. Stillno 100 yard wr in over 3 years. have we had a 2 td wr? The things outher teams with amazing run games do, we cannot. Gut the coaching staff, the Qb positions and most of the WRs. Get me a real offense.

    How do you order up a new offense?
    Vikes did every move possible to improve the team.
    BB was the best WR available. As for QB who was available?
    No one worth their salt, thus take a risk with TJ and bring in Gus.

    Coaching staff is the only thing that really could have been changed.
    But Brad made a 2 game improvement, thus if he could just do that again the Vikes would be 10-6 and playoff bound.

    I think the Vikes did all the logical moves in the off season.
    But things are still not panning out.

    Javon Walker and or Jerry Porter are better options and didnt suffer from a case of the drops.

    Our WR corps was not 1 WR away from being decent. We needed to sign more than 1 and cut ferge,

    Qbs that were better choices than TJ or Gus.
    Culpepper, Gray, Leftwich,

    Or pull the trigger on a trade for:
    Losman, Voleck, Warner, Collins

    We did not address our CB position.
    We did not addr the RT position
    We did not Addr the TE position


    We should have drafted Henne or Brohm
    We should have addressed the WR position earlier than in the 7th rounder
    We shouldn't be drafting C and trying to turn them into Tackles. Draft a f*cking tackle like all the sucessful teams.


    I hope this helps.
