    Not far behind is the play of your CB's.. in my unbiased opinion.
    I will ask you about them after this season. You will see a different group. They are underrated. Watch and see!

    Again, another fan that is judging our CB play based on "Shut Down" corner rational instead of the "Cover 2" scheme.

    ;D

    The addition of a pass rush from the edge will make all of you see that our CB's are actually good for the scheme.

    Sure they will still let guys catch the ball in front of them, but that is by design.
    Its what they do after the ball is caught that makes them good.
    Take a look at Griffs numbers.
    His tackles were up there pretty high and he didn't let many get out of his grip for large gains.

    Talk shut down corner with a team that runs a Press/Man coverage scheme my friend.
    ;D
    Will they ever learn Marr? They will be eating crow soon. I am not worried about our pass D one bit this year or our defense at all for that matter.

    I want to say Shank. Way too much money and I am not sure he is a good pass catching tight end. Might be a spot for a #1 pick next year in the draft but we will see what he does this year. TJs play makes the biggest impact on the team but I would not be so quick to call him the weakest. I think our weakest link is Cook. I think he made progress last year but until he can prove that he can be an elite starter, there is room for an upgrade.

    TJax is easily our weakest link, he needs to start beating 8 in the box because teams will force TJax to beat them.
    Fortunately, the Vikes will be stout on defense and will be conservative to keep the pressure off the kid.
    But there's going to be many times where he'll be needed to win the game.
    A BMac suspension or poor play from Cook will compound our QB problem.
    Even if out tackles were All Pros, I don't think TJax would easily have success.

    Money has nothing to do with it. Throwing more money at a player isn't going to make him better, nor should fans increase their expectations of a player simply because a team over paid him.

    Are people expecting Jared Allen to get 30+ sacks or better just because we gave up three picks for him?

    I certainly hope not.

    Yet they put higher expectations on Shank, Smoot & Walker for no other reason than what we gave up for them.

    With that said, I expect those people who call those players along with Hovan busts, to call Allen a bust if he doesn't get near 20 sacks.

    Hell, they called Hovan a bust when he got 9 sacks. A feat no Viking has accomplished since Hovan left. And that was playing nose tackle!

    It is called reading a whole thread and responding.

    Maybe some people should try it more.
