    The Horse was beaten, died, burried, and is now turned to dust in it's grave.

    It's the pass rush that we could use more help in. Opposing QBs can stand in the pocket 6-8 seconds on average before even feeling any threat. I don't care if you have the greatest defensive backs of all time....they will get burned with that much open pocket time, by any starting QB in this League.

    Start to get some pressure on the QB off the ends with a 4 man rush (No Blitzes) and watch how much better our pass defense gets. When we have to call blitzes all the time to get pressure and sacks it puts the defesive backs in to many man coverage situations. Eventually that's gonna kill ya.

    To me one of the weakest areas we have currently is our pass rush. JMHO.

    Although another top WR wouldn't hurt either....How about both??

    Cheers!

    Couldn't agree more.
    We need a RDE that can get us 10 or 12 sacks this year.
    Probably gonna need help at S as well if both Doss and Smith are allowed to leave/given thier walking papers.
    Don't forget that Tank is a FA as well, he did tons for us in his 2 years here

    Makes you gasp a little bit.
    I'm pretty sure Smith is gonna be suspended for at least 4 games next year.... don't know how you could get out of that.

    Doss and Tank really didn't do a hell of a lot while hear; but that being said if a roster spot opened up they could fill in decently.
    It's obvious we are going to need to pick up a safety in the draft.... I think FA will dictate whether we pick up somebody to step in soon versus somebody to groom a few years.
    OR the other way around... who knows.

    Re: Quarterback Not Only Offseason Concern

    I am sick and tired of hearing about how Jackson is the reason the Vikings are bad. I hear it all the time. I don't understand how any QB can be good without good wide receivers. If we are ever going to know if he is a good QB we must give him some wideouts to throw to, not Bobby Wade's.

    i agree... but FYI... Donovan Mcnabb and Favre... did it.... and Favre has a tendancy to make average receivers look like pro bowlers... i.e. antoino freeman...
