    If the Vikings DB's could ...

    ... attack the ball like the Bears did against the Cowboys, the Vikings would be a better team.

    If the Vikings play Romo each week, they might look like that too.

    LOL, well played. Anyone notice that they still play the C2 up in Chicago. I'm still waiting for people to convince me that its a dead scheme.

    Five picks? It would be difficult to go under the pass and make a pick if the DB's are playing ten to twenty yards off.

    It is a very aggressive cover 2 rather than a passive cover 2.

    Even with that, the late picks, which were much more Romo's fault than the earlier ones, came with the corners playing man up and the safety attacking the ball. The Vikings will play man, but they often push the safety so deep that he could never recover to the ball for a pick.

    I hardly ever see our DB's that far off. Not unless they are in a position to allow a team to score. Then (like we saw the Vikes this weekend) will allow all the underneath stuff but not allow a deep throw by dropping into deeper zones.


    I didn't make it to the 4th quarter. Fell asleep so I will defer on the later picks, but the beginning of the game, they were playing traditional C2 zones. Only time they got out of that was when they sent a blitzer from the LB'rs or Secondary.

    It would be nice if they could catch the ball when it hits them

    as the sacks # rises.. you will see the int #'s rise.. arrant/quick/desperate throws will come when qb's feel the pressure in their face all game long. (see 49'rs .. record setting # of passes without an int.. that must span how many quality teams? how many elite cb's/safteys? and bam.. we get his first.

    Give us a few LB's like Urlacher and Briggs and the C2 would look a lot better here too.

    One would think so, but the Vikings led the league in sacks last year at 50 while getting a league worse 8 INT's. The team that led in INT's was Green Bay at 31, yet they were 27th in sacks.

    This....

    I fully expect in about four years we'll sign Charles Tillman to 'bolster our secondary'
