    No shit.

    What's next ESPN - you rank the Patriots passing attack as the best in the NFL?

    Re: ESPN ranks Vikings d-line as the best in the NFL.

    Really the thing that it doesn’t mention, in great detail, is how dangerous those three guys make Edwards and our LB core.
    Our LB’s did a decent job last year when they blitzed the problem was we had to blitz them often to put pressure on the QB.
    With Allen, and the Williams Towers devastating OL’s
    the LB’s will have a hayday on receivers, rb’s and the occasional QB.
    When we do blitz Greenway or someone they should be able to get to the QB quickly with the pressure coming from the rest of the line.
    And Edwards who is an average DE with decent speed should have plenty of looks at the QB as well.
    I mean some people try to downgrade what that move did for our defense as a whole.
    But honestly it was a huge move and it made the defense all around exponentially better.

    On paper, we still haven't seen anything. Childress loves to stop the run, so he might not let allen run free like he did in KC, forcing Allen to stay in his lane and making it harder to get pressure on the QB. But yeah they should be awesome.

    That is really my only gripe with Childress.
    The best coaches push their game plan even when its not working at the moment because they know that eventually it will click.
    But the best coaches also can look at how a game is going and change what needs to be changed to win.


    Childress needs to learn to utilize his talents and his playbook more effectively.
    He also needs to know when to throw a curve versus staying with the fast ball.(pardon the baseball lingo, I hate that I just used it)

    First of all, since when in Childress our defensive coordinator?
    Secondly, what make you think he "ran free" in KC?
    Thirdly, just because you stayin your gap doesn't not mean you cannot rush the passer...

    I'm a happy Vikes fan but i think if you are talking Dlines, I would have to go with the Pats or Chargers as # 1. Perharps we got more points because we are feilding a 4-3 versus a 3-4.

    Either way I have us as the top 4-3 Dline and the Third best line overall..

    The Chargers as #1? Is that the same Chargers D-Line that gave up 296 rushing yards to AD?

    Facts in itself prove we have the best dline... how many seasons do u think it will take to become #1 run offense? i think after this year we will have the #1 run offense.
