    Re: A ray of sunshine on Black Monday

    That is about the only bright spot at this point in time.. Sadly, it means nothing when your offense screws everything up and can't score points.. Add that with a 1st year HC that seems like he can't call the right plays at the right time, and we have the 2006 Minnesota Vikings.. I doubt we will make the playoffs, even if we did, we would be the ones that were 1 and done..

    Yesterday watching the game on fox, they said the we had the no. 1 run defense and the no. 30 pass defense in the league. How does that add up to no. 5 defense overall?

    I bet you that is the first time in history a team has had no. 1 and no.30 at the same time.

    The Viking's were the 10th overall D last week, and we held the Bears to 107 yards offense yesterday.
    With our D holding the Bears to 24 net passing yards yesterday our passing D will no longer be 30th against the pass.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    At 8-8 I think we would be in!!!

    The best I think the below teams will be is

    Giants:
    8-8
    Phil:
    7-9
    Car:
    9-7
    Atl: 8-8
    Stl: 7-9
    49ers: 7-9

    Vikings 8-8!!!
    And we would have a better division record than the Gians and Atlanta.


    GO VIKINGS!!!!
    There is still hope!!!!
    Way to stay positive!!!
    ;D

    And we can do it with TJ leading the way!!!
    I am also trying to still stay positive for this season, but IMO Brooks gives us an all around better chance to win than Tarvaris at this point. If Bollinger can't go, I'm guessing we'll see BJ again next weekend.

    The defense looked good.

    Was the defense that good or was Grossman that bad?
    I've been a Viking fan since I was just out of diapers, hopefully we get Super Bowl win before I go back in 'em.

    Well considering we dropped back more men into coverage, ran a solid 3-4 Leber had an int a fumble rec. I would say our defense confused and harassed him.

    We were making plays all day. They had like 6 first downs all game to our 21

    Not in the category which matters.
    They are #9 in scoring defense at 19.2 points/game.


    Of course, if you take away the FOUR TDs which have been scored when the offense is on the field (2 INTs for TDs and 2 FRs for TDs) and the safety the offense gave up yesterday, that drops the average to 17.1, which is good for SIXTH in the league.

    Now - I didn't do the same for the teams ahead of the Vikes - but none of them have more than 2 INT or FR returns against them.

    =Z=

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    And if the offense could actually score some points off the turnovers they give them and give the D a lead to work with they could be even better.

    And the D will hopefully only continue to improve!

    Lets all hope the offense rallies on our defensive success these last games. I wish that would have been the case the whole year.
