    This could get ugly - Vikings Season Could Spiral Out of Control

    [size=13pt]This could get ugly[/size]

    .....one thing I did not see mentioned was what the Vikings are up against.

    Everyone knew this team had to get off to a good start or this could be a repeat of 2006. Heck, it could be worse than 6-10........

    Well what does that tell you.
    It tells me there are some serious problems on offense.
    This is exactly what Antoine Winfield was hollering about a few months ago.
    Looks like Kevin Curtis is having a great year so far.
    I wonder why he picked Philly over us?

    Could it be that he recognized the OL was gonna suck so bad the the QB would have time to put the ball in his hands?

    Come on, it can't be the scheme as all the haters were saying last week that we run the same scheme as the Eagles and look what they put up this week.

    Can't be the coach as all the haters said he ran the same scheme as the Eagles, again, look what they put up last week.

    What else can it be?
    HMMMM,

    Young players (2nd Year CB) missing tackles?
    TE who can't catch? Oops, he did catch a few.
    Slot guy who can't catch?
    Wait, he had some tough catches yesterday as well.

    Nope, I think it all comes back to the trenches. OL that can't pass block and a DL that can't get any kindof consistent pressure on the opposing teams QB.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    True.
    Probably all of that you just mentioned.
    However, who drafted these players or picked them up in FA?
    It wasn't you or I, it was BC and his staff.
    Sorry Marrdro, either way you cut it up, it all smells to high heaven.
    If something is broke, then you fix it.
    If it isn't, then go with what works.
    If Philly is running the same scheme, and yet they are successful and we aren't, then you fix it.
    We have to get Ryan Cook off of the RT spot.
    He was blown by several times and it was like they had free run at Holcomb.

    As Judd Zulgad points out at the Access Vikings blog, things could go downhill fast for the Vikings, as the easy part of the schedule is over......

    I'm one of those haters you're referencing. The point was not that we run the same scheme as the Eagles. The point, which we both agree on, is that we try to run the same scheme as the Eagles, but we don't have the talent to do that.

    Your solution is to wait until the players get better.
    My solution is to change the damn scheme.

    If you want to blame the OL, you must admit that 3 of those 5 guys were brought in by Childress. With respect to the D. Chill himself says that our D has played well enough for us to be 3-0.

    And who, exactly, do you suggest replaces him? Marcus Johnson?

    fix the line, and that will fix alot of the problems.
    it doesnt matter who is at qb, they have no time to throw.


    i really think we can win some of our upcoming games, starting with the fudgepackers this weekend.
    chicago is a joke, philly is beatable, and san diego has no defense.
    i will chalk up the dallas game as a big fat L, they seem to be the best the nfc has to offer.
    ...Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.
