    Whatever the Minnesota Vikings are putting in the Kool-Aid this offseason, it sure goes down smooth.....

    Thanks for the read Singer.
    It's great how some people go through great legnths to make a point yet they publish wrong statistics.
    First of all how are there only 39 superbowl winners?
    Secondly what defense have allowed a 7.93 passer rating?
    Also 78 superbowl participants?

    Thanks for the read my friend.

    Despite a top-five pass rush, last year’s Vikes finished No. 16 in defensive passer rating. That’s more bad news: Of the 39 teams who’ve won the Super Bowl, just four have allowed their opponents to pass the ball with comparable efficiency.
    The average Super Bowl team finishes between No. 6 and No. 7 in scoring defense. The average champion finishes a bit better than No. 5. Eighty-two percent of teams that are good enough to make the title game finish in the top 10.

    Last year’s Vikings finished No. 13. Respectable? Certainly. Title-worthy? Not really.

    Simply shamefull that we are that low, especially with our DL.
    Anyone still think Leslie would make a great HC?


    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    If we improve our pass D just a bit, and get a little consistency at QB we will take that next step. These things are easily attainable. We are a few plays away, and in a game a couple plays is what makes the difference.

    Lets not forget, our Defensive Leader missed 13 games last year.
    He's only 1 player, I understand that, but that position was abused all year long by Opposing Offenses.

    As for Leslie, I haven't really seen him do anything to deserve a HC shot.
    Until we can force an O into a pass only mode because of our stout run defense and then absolutely close the door on the O's passing game with pass breakups, sacks, and INTs... what has he done other then drive the bus?
    The true measure of a man is what he'd do knowing he'd never be found out.

    Lets not forget, our Defensive Leader was there the year before and we didn't fare much better.
