    Musgrave vows team will take more shots down the field

    Vikings fans will be happy to hear that offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave also believes that one shot down the field isn't nearly enough over the course of 60 minutes.

    "It is important," Musgrave said. "That's what we're based on is running the ball, featuring Adrian [Peterson] but at the same time getting our quarterback in a rhythm, both down the field and also possession and control-type passes. That's what we want to be and that's what we will be."
    I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees it. Run, run, run punt & run, run, pass, punt is not only going to take it's toll on a RB, but not win you most of your games either.

    From what I understand, Musgrave has Peterson on his fantasy team.

    In Marrdro's defense, the Noodle did have a popped tendon and issues with his shoulder and it wasn't like he threw it deep every other play my friend.

    Back to now.......The passing attack will be fine once the damn O-coord starts calling pass plays instead of the stupid "Fancy" crap that we were trying to run last week.

    The Vikings OTOH are running 180 degrees to the contrary on this one. They just signed a RB to a QB type contract, they signed yet another retread QB looking for one last shot at glory and have no legitimate field stretching WR.
    I personally think that we will see the "Pass Happy" league come back to earth in a week or two as the defenses start to get their feet under them.

    Excellent post.

    My friends, I have a quick question for all of you........Were we beat by a "Pass Happy" team last week or were we beat by a "Balanced" that exploited what the defense was giving up?

    Answer......They exploited what the defense was giving up.

    Sure the Chargers are a "Stretch" the field type of offense, but their O-coord was smart enough to realize that aspect of their game was going to be taken away. They didn't run any fancy "Wildcat" offense, or come out with any super fancy player packages. They just came out in their base offense and hit the underneath stuff that was opened up when our LB'rs vacated those zones in their attempts to pressure the QB.

    Are the deep passes fun to watch? Sure, but give me a team that can either run the ball or pass the ball, based on what the defense can't do, and I will be happy.

    In our case, we should be running to set up the pass. Its the way our team is built. Establish the run, and then, exploit the defense off of the play action fake.

    Isn't that what all of you keep harping on? Running a scheme that fits your players talents?

    The trend in the league is to put the ball in the air, but the Vikings vow to keep it in the hands of Adrian Peterson.

    Clearly, Fraser does not want the opposing teams to be unsure of our intents for offense.

    **Note to all NFL teams..............The Vikings have announced that they will be running a one dimensional offense that is called "The Peterson Show". Please make a note of it. Thank you.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    Don't think this was a secret. Have you seen our WR corps? It's embarrassing.

    No one will see our WR Corps if the O-coord doesn't send them on the field and call a play or two for them.

    Now, don't you think there's a reason for that? Between our aging (aged) QB and our no-name WRs, you can't really blame him.

    Sure, we have to be more creative with our play calls and gameplan, but the ball should be going to either Harvin, Peterson, Shank or Rudolph. There's no talent among WR corps (aside from Harvin obviously).

    And why is Harvin returning kick offs? Sure he scored a TD, but it's not a wise move. Just sayin'.
