    Yeah i agree, but at least they where in position to make the play, and not getting burnt down the field

    it's true.

    with less time, the qb will have less time to lay it up like that.

    have a good DE always helps the secondary, in all facets of defending the pass.
    i m better than you, so just give up...

    I hear ya my friend, but those types of passes usually take touch and time to throw.
    I don't think QB's will have that luxury this year.
    Not always my wise friend. A fade route is possible the quickest play next to the quick slant. That jump ball in NC jumps out the quickest to me. I think Allen will be a monster but I think the team and defense must continue to improve on all facets. Jump balls
    can, still kill us. I'm stoked that we have an elite defense though. I'm just salvating. We are looking like the new Ravens.

    Excellent point.

    Problem is you have to be inside the red zone for that to happen.
    I suspect we won't see opposing teams getting many of those opportunities this year.
    ;D

    Additionally, I concur with the need for improvement at all levels.
    Lets hope the team peaks about week 15 or so for a cakewalk through the playoffs.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Re: Jared Allen has defense looking Sharper

    We all agree that our pass defense was suspect at times last year.
    I think we could all also agree you can't cover a receiver forever.

    Allen will help, but we still have to get pressure/sacks from the rest of our D to cover our lack of consistent coverage at times.

    After awhile teams will bootleg the QB to the opposite side of Allen to give him more time.
    We are gonna have to bring pressure from other spots on the field and maintain coverage.

    I am excited though.

    Yea, they got beat on many plays like you mentioned earlier, and yea theres a few areas that can sitll get us burnt.
    Just remember tho, Griffin, McCauley, and Gordon all didn't have that much experience going into last year.
    They'll at least be one year improved this year

    this is something i was contemplating. here would be a good situation for one of the lb's to be spying on the qb. and with all the extra's (te/rb) taken up blocking our front 4. the lb's will have open highways to make it to a scramblin qb.

    so.. they bootleg left to protect themselves, and EJ lays a hit that knocks them back to wednesday..

    My contribution to this topic, is passing along something a guy from California thought interesting. Quite a play on of words I think.
