    Don't overlook Oakland yet. They gave Detroit & Denver a run for their money....

    We pass rushed.
    Hell, we even smacked both QB's around.

    They picked apart our soft zone dude.


    Why are these weak teams?
    According to?

    Yeah, from what I remember Kitna got a concussion.

    Either way, I can't wait to see Robison as a starter. BRING HIM ON!!

    I have no problem with the D. We have young guys on the line and secondary that will only get better as the season goes along. The coverage should get better as Griffin, Greenway, Henderson and McCauley gain confidence and knowledge in the system.
    However, they can't win games on their own, the offense needs serious improvement and without it the dark future predicted at the beginning of this thread could prove fairly accurate.

    If we continue to play like we did against the Lions and turn the ball over 5 times a game Peru is probably right about his predictions.
    We got beat because of turnovers plain and simple.
    However I don't expect us to continue doing that.
    The problem with predictions like this is that they assume we will keep playing the same game we did in our only loss this season.
    Not going to happen.
    Also I remind you we lost in overtime by 3 pts.
    Its not like we got blown out by the Lions.
    I expect TJ to get better as he gets more games under his belt.
    I think we will finish with 8 or 9 wins this season.
    We are not ready to beat the top 1/3 tier teams like the Chargers and Chicago yet.
    However we are pretty evenly matched with the mid tier teams like the Lions and Green Bay and and KC etc.
    If our O line can pull pass protection together we will do pretty good this year I think given our D.

    Re: CRYSTAL BALL FOR THE REST OF 07

    yeah they "picked" apart our secondary... but we sort of have a bend but dont break defense, thoughout the game they got passed the 50, but how many times did our defense stick it out and make plays for us to win the game, we didnt lose cause of our defense. the defense is the only reason we had a chance at winning.

    how many drives did our defense destroy for the lions, the defense played well. when u have your defense on the field for basically the majority of the game, the defense is gonna get tired, they actually did better than i thought they would for being on the field the entire frigggen game

    i hate the idea of dieing before another winning season

    If the Vikings do not get their act together we very well could go 5-11. I just hope we get a total team effort and fix what went wrong in this game.

    1. Penalties have always been a problem. Why can't we fix this? Even vets were getting penalties.
    2. Turnovers. What went wrong? Combination of bad play on the OL and bad decisions by TJ or maybe are our receivers running good routes?
    3. Pass Defense. This also was a problem last year.
    Why did we not address this in the offseason? We need another shutdown CB.
    4. Our running game looked sluggish. What was the cause of this? OL or was it cause Tony was out? Was it because of the D of the Lions?
    Are they that good at rushing?

    I started to blame Longwell yesterday because I was drunk and he was an easy scapegoat. Although he should of nailed that in the dome.

    I have hope but I am down!

    Re: CRYSTAL BALL FOR THE REST OF 07

    I used to like to walk the straight and narrow line
    I used to think that everything was fine
    Sometimes Id like to sit and gaze for days through sleepless dreams
    All alone and trapped in time
    All alone and trapped in time

    I wonder what tomorrow has in mind for me
    Or am I even in its mind at all
    Perhaps Ill get a chance to look ahead and see
    Soon as I find myself a crystal ball
    Soon as I find myself a crystal ball

    Tell me, tell me where Im going
    I dont know where Ive been
    Tell me, tell me, wont you tell me
    And then tell me again
    My heart is breaking, my bodys aching
    And I dont know where to go
    Tell me, tell me, wont you tell me
    Ive just got to know

    Crystal ball
    Theres so many things I need to know
    Crystal ball
    Theres so many things Ive got to know
    Crystal ball

    [extra verse used occasionally live]
    If you should see me walking
    Through your dreams at night
    Would you please direct me
    Where I ought to be
    Ive been looking for a crystal ball
    To shed the light
    To find a future in me...
    To find a future in me...

    Crystal ball
    Theres so many things I need to know
    Crystal ball
    Theres so many things Ive got to know
    Crystal ball
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
