    We need the almighty sack big time this week. Let's hope they can end the game with double digit numbers.

    Not all the time. Tackles are a misleading stat for DB's. Look at the bills last year. Winfield was either 1st or 2nd in tackles there too and they had either the 1st or 2nd ranked D in the league.

    Stats mean absolutely nothing to a TEAM. Stats are for individuals. We are a team and if we want to win, we can't focus on stats at all, except for wins.

    Regardless of how many sacks williams and johnstone have, our D AS A TEAM has played nowhere near their expectations.

    One good example of many that are bad...LB's should rack up the tackles in this league and ours arent...that means that our DL isnt keeping the OL off our LB's...That means our LB's cant get to the ball carrier....That means that our DB's are making the tackles...That means the RB's are getting downfeild before we make the tackle....

    DB's that like to hang around the line of scrimmage, like winfield, and that are great tacklers, like winfield, our gonna have high tackle totals because they get tackles on running plays and on passes downfield. This is the case with winfield, thus the reason he played on a good D in buffalo, with talented LB's that made tackles and talented D-lineman as well, yet was either 1st or 2nd in team tackles.

    Although I do think we need that big space eating, run stuffing NT next year, and we need our LB's to get to there gaps quicker, I still feel that isn't the reason why winfields tackles are so high. Because they were also high on a talnted D in buffalo. Some guys are just constantly around the football and he is one of those guys.

    maybe the LB's aren't shooting their gaps?

    It means the Vikings LB's are out of position way to often.
    can we clone Bud Grant?
