    Five Plays the Minnesota Vikings Should Have on Speed Dial

    Five Plays the Minnesota Vikings Should Have on Speed Dial

    It is true that Childress' playbook has an conservative touch, but not all his plays should be discarded without a complete review.


    In fact, the Vikings had a tremendous season in 2008 at times, but it was only once they utilized their plays on the proper down and executed to perfection.


    Here's a look at what the Vikings could accomplish if they save these plays into 2009...

    Re: Five Plays the Minnesota Vikings Should Have on Speed Dial

    I really liked this article because they used plays that the Vikings already have in their arsenal and have used before.
    My favorite:

    [size=12pt]I-Formation: Playaction[/size]


    In this play, Sidney Rice (or in 2009, Percy Harvin) would line up wide right, Shaincoe lined up left of center motioning right. The backfield lines up in the I-Formation.

    At the snap, Shiancoe will be running a corner route while Rice (Harvin) runs a five-yard cross route. By doing this, if the cornerbacks are in man coverage, Shiancoe should have a good look out right.

    The key to this play is selling the run to the right side of the line behind full back Naufatu Tahi. With Shiancoe motioning, the play would seem, like the bootleg play already mentioned, a toss play out right.

    If they linebackers/nickel corners bite on this for just a second, Berrian can get his much needed two step (or more) lead on his man as he streaks up the sideline.

    If he's covered up, Adrian on the flat, Shiancoe out right, and Rice (Harvin) across the middle provide suitable out routes.

    If Favre is under center, I would like something like this to be put in.



    Berrian










    McKinnie
    Hutch
    Sully
    Herrera
    Loadholt

















    Rice









    Wade






































    Harvin





























    Favre


    Taylor

    Re: Five Plays the Minnesota Vikings Should Have on Speed Dial

    What I would like to see is plays that make the D go crazy.
    i.e. have AD, CT, and Harvin in the huddle and play musical chairs as to who sets up at tailback.

    What I do know is Favre will help the running game more than he will the passing game.
    D's will respect the passing game enough to really open up the running game.
    Just look at what happened to the yds/att when Favre went from the Pack to the Jets.

    Ryan Grant
    2007 5.1 yds/att
    2008
    3.9

    Diff - 1.2
    Thomas Jones
    2007 3.6
    2008
    4.5
    Diff +0.9

    Can you just imagine if AD can have a similar bump in yds/att from his 2008 4.8
    to a 2009 of 5.8.
    Given AD's 363 att that would result in 2105 yds.

    No D is going to respect TJ or Sage enough not to stack the box when AD is in the backfield, until TJ or Sage have 6 strait games with 100+ ratings, 300+yds, and 3TD's.
    Whereas Favre will have to have 6 strait games of
    < 70 rating, < 200 yds, and more INT's than TD's before the D's will regularly stack the box.

    Chester Taylor is now a play apparently.

    Also once the opposing team is expecting a CB blitz it really just makes us vulnerable. So lets save it for once in a while.
