    We really do need our defense to score points, seeing our offense can't.

    Those two turnovers that the Vikings defense scored on against the Lions seems like forever & a day ago.

    Let's hope they can turn it around & get something on the scoreboard when we face them again on Sunday.

    Yep, our D needs to give up 10 or less points a game and they have to score at least 7 points a game for us to win in all reality. Just forcing turnovers really isn't enough. A perfect example would be last week against the bears forcing a turnover on the opening kickoff and our Offense LOSING yards!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Asking are defense to score a touchdown each game is asking a little much I think. It is really difficult for a defense to score a TD. it doesn't happen very often. It is pretty sad that we need to rely on our defense to stop the other team and score the points but that is the only way we are gonig to win. We do need them to score points but I just don't think that we can ask that of them week in and week out. Yes they will score but they can't do it consistently.

    Hopefully, The Spark (TJack) will start. Score some TDs with our offence. Then we will not need our D to score to win.
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it!!

    I know it's very difficult for them to score, but's that's almost what it takes for the vikes to win. This weekend they should have an easier time moving the ball against the pathetic Lions, but they have been playing better, just to piss down their legs in the end.

    Well let's first start with the offense before we start criticising on to D
    the D had been great so far so i say that this article is shit

    Sad that the Offense can't do their job...heck, if they would score a few TDs a game and eat up the clock, the Defense could probably pitch a few shutouts (since they would be much better rested)!
