    MANKATO, Minn. — Brian Murphy, the Minnesota Vikings' new special-teams coordinator, isn't making big changes to a unit that gave up an NFL-record seven touchdowns last season....

    ........SNICKER..........

    One backup LB isn't gonna save the world.
    The only thing that is gonna help our ST's is gonna be better kicking and better coaching.

    I just wish we had a kicker who could actually kickoff half decently, get hangtime and constantly get the ball near the goalline

    He did kindof start to grow on me last year.
    Start mind you.
    I have much bigger issues with our Punter and his accuracy/placement of his punts.

    NO SARCASIM.

    :
    If that one backup LB can inspire a group and get them to rally around him, sometimes thats all it takes.
    If you take the leader out of any unit, the unit as a whole greatly weakens.
    Players respond to his presence.
    Losing Farwell on Special Teams is just like losing E.J. Henderson on defense, whether you like that or not
    :P

    But Kluwe does have a boot!!
    Haven't we seen some 65 yarders?
    Of course, as mentioned, not so hot on the shorter, accuracy-needed ones.
    But, really, other than a couple of horrible games, he's been pretty good.
    Personally, I'd like to see a bit more go-for-it type of fake punt etc when we're sitting midfield...too long for FG but too short for a big punt.

    If you go back and look at our off season, I think nearly every single freakin move was made to bolster STs depth/competition and performance.
    At least, they know they need to fix that phase of the game!


    Harvin will get some returns.
    Allen, Sanford and Brinkley could all be ST tackling machines with extra attention going to Farwell.
    Holt, Paymeh, and Onatalu all have more ST experience than on D or O.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    You know, I hadn't really thought about that, but you're right. And no area needed to be improved more. Christ, giving up seven touchdowns on special teams? Cut that out and you've already added a couple more wins.
