The last couple weeks the Vikings have played prime time football and I have to say that the announcers have done a good job and made some sound observations on our football team. Several of the comments have been echoed and re-echoed on this board, but you can tell that the frustrations the fans have felt this year are clearly understood by the national media.
- (John Madden)
Brad Childress has tied his fate with TJack and they are kind of linked together.
- (Steve Young) If you could guarantee me that all I would have to face is the cover 3 defense with 2 corners and only one safety, I would come out of retirement right now."
- (Ron Jaworski) When you see 8 in the box like the Vikings are facing, the QB has GOT to be able to
exploit that and make the defense pay for it. If he can't throw the ball downfield against THAT defense, Adrian Peterson has no room to run.
- (Jaws again) Look at the replays of Jackson throwing. He has poor mechanics and doesn't set his feet properly.
....Anyways -- I thought those were all great observations, although nothing we haven't discussed on here many, many times. It really isn't a secret, though. Other teams are totally onto us and you can be certain if we don't get substantial improvement from our QB next year, Adrian Peterson won't face an honest defense all year.
Good announcing, though.......it was nice to see the Vikes in prime time the last couple weeks!!!
