    Re: Vikings to focus on pass rush

    According to Frazier, who helped coach the Indianapolis Colts to a Super Bowl title, by getting the players to play better.

    "If we can do a good job coaching the guys up that are here," he said.
    What a novel idea.
    A coach that thinks we can improve by the coaches doing thier job...........

    Notice he didn't say "Bring in a bunch of Big Name Free Agents"...... ;D

    He said coach the guys we got.......

    There's some things that he and I have talked about this offseason and he's working on right now to improve his overall play," Frazier said. "His attitude has been great. I'm excited about what I think is going to be a bust-out year for him."

    The key for Udeze, Frazier said, is getting him to understand what his strengths and weaknesses are and to start playing to his strengths.

    "He can overanalyze things," Frazier said. "I really want him to just let it go. He's such a powerful guy and has pretty good speed and athleticism, and you don't always see that show up on tape. Just come off the ball and let me worry about whether it's a mistake or not. I just want him to be more disruptive."
    Heck he is already working with the guys............

    My word I like this guy already.
    ;D

    Well so far he is saying the right things, so I like that also.

    Lets see if it translate to the field and we can get an even better defense than last year.

    Re: Vikings to focus on pass rush

    last year my dad and i would make little side bets on - At what point would the other teams O stop trying to run and just throw the ball.


    i'm hoping that this is again a fact..

    and with KU on his side, and EJ back.. we should be able to really apply some more preasure then we did last year.

    i'm glad we have a D coach that understands coaching is just as important as talent.

    When you finish the season tied for worst in the league in pass rush, that should be a No-Brainer.

    They didn't talk about Ray Edwards in the article and I was very impressed with his play last year as a rookie and think he could be in a the hunt for a starting job if Udeze or James doesn't produce and the same for Jayme Mitchell he also was a surprise last year.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I have to agree with you whack.
    Ray Edwards did a great job last year for his rookie campaign.
    If Udeze can play like we have always hoped he can, James come back healthy and STAY healthy, and add in Edwards coming off a promising rookie campaign. .
    we are looking a whole new defense.
    Pass rushers getting to the quarterback and a run D that is one of the best in history.
    OOOOOHHHH mama, the possibilities.
