    Pass Rush

    Tice is an idiot for not starting Erasmus and Darion Scott and Ends. Instead, he wants to go with Spencer Johson and Darion!!! We need more speed on the d line and we need to get Johnstone in their alot.

    Also, Dontarrious Thomas and Raonall Smith in their alot. After all, DT ran a 4.4 and raonall ran a 4.28 before. We have so much talent and speed at linebacker but our retarded coach doesn't know how to use IT!!! No excuse why our linebackers arent sent to blitz more!

    Re: Pass Rush

    the reason, i believe we aren't using DT out there more is because he is completely lost on pass coverage(not saying our other LB are doing any better). also Smith gets injuried a lot, i don't what his status is.

    our defensive line was supposed to be able to get to the QB without blitzing and i haven't seen that on a consistent basis. if we start sending our LB on blitzes that will open up an even more glaring weakness in the middle of our D. that is where we usually get beat in the passing game. these are all my opinions though, so you can take it for what it is worth.

    Thanks Josdin

    Re: Pass Rush

    Dude lets just run a 3-4 this year and turn to a 4-3 next year. We can have Napo EJ Cowart and Dt start for us with E James and Keith Newman in the Nickel packages along with raonall. WE got K WIll P Will and Spencer Johnson to beef up the front. Besides we wont be getting beaten in the middle of the field anymore when we got 2 lbs back at the curl. We will have Napo and DT, the speedsters chasing down runningbacks in the flat and on outside running plays and if K WIll becomes K WILL again, our D WILL BE AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our secondary doing just hopefully except for Chavous but everything else will be ok.

    Re: Pass Rush

    i dunno. there was a lot of talk about going to a 3-4 defense this year. i think it was pretty split 50/50 amongst us viking fans. i don't know if K-Will would be used right as an end and in a 3-4 defense there is no question that our Nose Tackle would be P-Williams, i don't know who would sub in and out for him though. it's worth a shot, but it would be putting a lot of responsibilities on our young/talented LB like DT. :???:

    Thanks Josdin

    Re: Pass Rush

    We aren't getting pass rush anyway.. I'd mix in some 3-4 and blitz the outside linebackers some.. It helps stop the run better too

    Re: Pass Rush

    Tice is not making the personnel calls for the Defense, Ted is.

    If we switched to a 3-4 now...complete train wreck. You cannot just make that switch like that and frankly we would be worse off. We do not have the LB's to do this.
