    I have to wait and watch the game when I get home from work, but I like what the score reflects.


    -Great job by T-Jack.
    1 pick, it's gonna happen.
    He is improving.

    -AD and CT the two-headed monster

    -Watch out NFC, here we come!

    -Good job again Chilly!

    -Smart move resting AD.

    Ultra
    nice post

    I can't disagree with any of those points.
    I might add good play by the defense they ther then the quick TD in the first quarter.
    Detroit was never in this game.

    P.S. Thank you Audrey Allison for the return as well as the nice amount of hustle todfay on catches.

    Great job by the rookies and young players.

    TD by Rice, TD by Wade, TD by Taylor, 2 TD's by AD.
    Kickoff return for a TD by Allison.

    Jackson over 200 yards, and that interception only came after a great play knocking a pass in the endzone out of Shiancoe's hands.


    Only one punt, good defensive plays, INT by Udeze

    I'm pumped.
    112 points over 3 games, and the 49ers next, who just had 31 points put up on them by Carolina.
    Should be exciting

    Jackson looks more relaxed. The Defense played well, holding Detroit to just over 250 yds total. What can you say about Adrian? The kid works a half and puts up numbers some backs don't get in an entire game. Good mixture of run / pass play calls, and I loved the fake field goal call!!

    Ok.
    I'll believe that the Vikings are coming together as a team and maybe Childress is finally figuring out how to be a coach.
    But like the Bush surge in Iraq, I won't believe it until Bush walks through a Baghdad market and the Vikings get into at least the 2nd round.

    I think the difference in how T-Jack is playing now compared with the beginning of the season is clear even in the body language.
    Earlier this year, he looked more timid and nervous in the pocket.
    It was especially noticeable when he was in the shotgun - he looked like he was afraid he was going to drop it or something.

    For the past three weeks, though, he's looked calm and confident back there - he's making all the throws he should be making, and he's going through his reads calmly, without panicking.

    The whole team showed up today - we executed damn near perfectly all day long.
    I can't remember the Vikings playing this well in every facet of the game since 1998.

    I really can't think of anything else to say.
    I'm pretty much speechless right now.
    I certainly couldn't have predicted us winning three straight after that humiliating loss by the Packers.
    I never thought I'd be saying this, but it looks like Childress's plan is starting to come to fruition.

    Wow...
    what
    a difference in T-Jack.
    Very poised and ran / thrown well.
    I'm trying to see what's different with execution now vs. earlier in the year, like black and white.

    and i have a feeling with 25 carries, AD would've been 250+ yards today.


    Another note... Why does AD have nastier cuts now than earlier.
    He had some monster cuts with that brace on...
    made some defenders miss him completely with unbelievable cuts with that brace.
    This is looking like a dangerous Vike team no one really would want to play right now.
    All the momentum.
    Still some work needed in pass defense.

    We are a deep threat receiver and a safety away from the best team in the NFC if we continue to execute like this.

    Kenny Phillips or DeSean Jackson is our big question now. ;D

    Wow.......

    How can you find fault with a performance like that. (I am sure somebody will though
    ;D)

    Sure doesn't look like a team falling apart of having all the unhappy players in it that a writer alluded to with all his "Off the record" quotes/reporting.


    QB.
    INT by TJ was about the only flaw I could see in his performance.
    Again, a pretty good job of managing the game, seeing the field and not making any major mistakes that would have cost us the game.
    His passes were crisp, on target and on time.
    Great looking touch pass on the lob to Rice that shows he is maybe getting a clue on that aspect.

    Recievers.
    Nice job by all.
    Held on to some very hard throws by TJ.
    Good blocking down field for the runners.
    Loved to finally get to see Allison make some grabs and Rice, along with B-wade were clutch early and often.
    Heck even Shank and Dugan caught a couple of nice ones.

    RB's.
    Nothing more to say than outstanding effort.

    OL.
    Man do I like this group now.
    Only saw 3 missed blocks and Herrera is a beast when he pulls.

    DL.
    Finally got some pressure with our front 4 without alot of blitzing.
    Nice to see, although alot of that could be attributed to the Offense getting them in a situation were the Lions were pretty much 1 dimensional.


    Secondary.
    Still need some work here but a good performance.
    Kept everyone in front of them and other than the TD drive the Lions had, they didn't give up any big plays.

    LB'rs.
    Quiet day from this crowd but that is the way I like it.
    Good job by all 3 keeping pressure when they did blitz and supporting the pass when the team was in thier zone coverage.

    ST's.
    Touchdown by Allison and a nice fake/trick play at a key point in the game.

    Negatives. (Really have to knit pick here to find any
    ;D)

    A few penalties that unfortunately blemished a stellar team performance.

    ST.
    The kickoff coverage seemed to let the Lions start with good Field position all game.
    Nothing really bad about that but I sure was worried a couple of times.

    Dropped catch in the End Zone by Shank.
    Next play resulted in a pick.
    Shank, you need to pull that ball in when you get a easy catch like that.
    You can't let the defender knock it away.

    AND THE BIGGEST NEGATIVE OF ALL.........

    It will be quiet around PPO again this week as all the haters don't come around when the team wins.
    I kindof miss them sometimes.

    ;D

    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
