    Interceptions? Not this year

    [size=13pt]Vikings Insider: Interceptions? Not this year [/size]

    The Vikings' pass rush and pass defense are better, but pickoffs are down, and no one seems to know exactly why.

    Picks typically lead to wins
    I'll like both.

    Through 10 games, the Vikings have six interceptions. That's 24th in the NFL, and consider this: The Packers have six interception returns for touchdowns.
    I have been preaching all year that we need to press more like Green Bay. We have the guys to play this type of pass D. Although it does not work against all teams. Green Bay needed to give up the press and play more like us vs the Saints.

    Re: Interceptions? Not this year

    The Tampa 2 defense seems to be outdated. I think many offenses have found the holes in the defense and are simply exploiting it, i.e. quick slants, 3 step drops. Defensive schemes are all out confusing the offense and catching them off guard therefore forcing them into turnovers. When the offense knows how to handle a defense before it snaps the ball the scheme is moot. Just like the Wildcat Offense being phased into the league this year the Tampa 2 should be phased out.
    This was in the comment section and I tend to agree but think it should be used in the right situation.

    The Packers do have 17int's to our 8 but they also have 2 fumbles recovered compared to our 12. I think part of the reason we get more fumbles is because we keep the reciever in front and the defender gets a chance to see the ball and try to strip it more often than if they were playing man.
