    All this talk about building chemistry and learning together, c'mon!
    It's the regular season and these games are going to fly by.
    There is no time left.
    It's time to put up or shut up.

    I'm good with short and simple, high percentage, but we need to mix and match.
    We stick one dimension and their defense will tear us up.
    Lots of progress, T-Jack, let's go!
    I agree.
    I for one think you will see more passes than runs in the first half.
    Nothing fancy, high percentage 3 step drops with alot of dump offs to the backs coming out of the backfield.
    I also think that Shank should be able to exploit the seam as well.

    Rationale is I really don't think thier LB's are a good fit for the defense that they try to run.

    TJ just needs to be smart in this one.
    Although I am not a proponent of a running QB, I think it will be drilled into TJ's head to tuck it and run a few times vice forcing it if nothing is there.
    ;D

    Re: Jackson, receivers vow to ease load on defense, running game

    The key against Detroit is to keep their offense off the field.
    Game and clock management will make or break the Vikes this game.
    I like the use of the run and short, high percentage passes for the most part.
    Going deep 2 times per half would be sufficient to keep the defense honest.
    Especially if they are open WRs.

    Don't get me wrong.
    If the deep ball is there you have to take it.
    You have to look at which team you're playing and the stregnths of that team.
    Detroit has a very talented offense and they will take it to a team.
    Hopefully the Vikings defense lives up to their expectations.
    If they can get to Kitna (which I think they can) it will force the Lions to stay short.
    That would be fine by me.
    They have Tatum Bell as the only real healthy RB and I know the Williams' will handle that.
    Robison, EJ and Greenway should be able to cover the outsides well enough to stop him.

    Re: Jackson, receivers vow to ease load on defense, running game

    Wow we need a QB.
    I understand Jackson will be no John Elway but he has to throw better.
    No WR could catch half of the stuff he throws.


    Last week against Atlanta he did his Tommy Kramer impression.
    Throwing the ball straight into the ground.


    I hope he snaps out of it and steps up to the plate.
    Just look for AP and he will make it happen.

    If they are going to do it, this is certainly the game they need to do it in. If they can't get the air attack going this week I don't know when they will.

    this should be a good week to see what we can do throwing the ball. there is not too much talent in that lions secondary
    We're bringing purple back.

    Re: Jackson, receivers vow to ease load on defense, running game

    The keys to this game are pretty clear across the board.
    The Vikings need to generate a consistent pass rush against Detroit forcing the Motor City Kitties to either counter with a running game they don't have or short passes.
    If the field is spread, the Vikes secondary could get exploited.
    The Vikings offensively need to obviously limit any turnovers, running game needs to control the clock.
    TJack needs to convert on 3rd downs and not to force anything that isn't there.
    A simple game plan is all it takes to beat the Lions...I am looking for 11 in a row today against the Lions if all goes well.
    If not Kitna is 1/5 of the way to his guarantee of 10 wins.
