    Re: Vikings ranked #1 against the run!!!!


    Considering we will be facing the two best rushing offenses in the league to finish the season, couple'd with the loss of Pat, it will be hard to stay number 1 against the rush, but it is a thing of beauty to enjoy watching our defense play. Way to go Defense.. Lets step it up yet another notch.

    Give me a healthy EJ, MWill, and Charles Gordon and yes I would. PIT's D has been healthy all year.

    We have better talent, just need/needed time to gel. It sucks big time that Sharp, Winfield, and PWill are getting so old.

    y'all are crazy Pitt has the greatest D coordinator in the history of the NFL. The guy basically designed the zone blitz and has developed more superstars than we could buy in a lifetime. I would take LeBeau over Frazier any day of the week. We have a great defense, but the steelers have had a legendary defense since the 70's. They reload players and let them go faster than we can develop one or two stars. Do they have less talent? Yes! Do they work better as a unit? Hell yes they do. We have one of the greatest 4-3 defenses in the league this year, but there isn't a defense in the NFL that has ever compared to Blitzberg.

    I thought we were talking defensive units and not coordinators.

    Even still I would take our unit this year. And to think what could have been had Madieu been healthy all year, had EJ not gotten injured early in the season and if Pat would still b on the team. We would have been an unmovable object. As it is, Frazier has done an excellent job of plugging guys and getting production out of them when a starter goes down.

    Gotta agree that as a whole pittsburgs defense is better.
    Injuries are no excuse. Pittsburg leads in points allowed(vikings 20th), yards per game allowed(vikings 12th), yds per play(vikings 10th) and pass yards(vikings 22nd). Even just run defense pittsburg is tied with the vikings for first allowing 3.2yds a rush, and have only give up 5 rushing tds to the vikings 9.

    Re: Rushing Offense and Defense

    I was just saying this to those Cardinal fans last week... we would be the #1 rushing team after the weekend.

    If we end this year #1 in stopping the run, that's 3 years straight.
