    ROFLMAO!!!!

    Do you think this stuff up yourself....or do you have a team of writers???

    Honestly, Mardro.....you crack me up!!!! You are the comedy machine of this forum.

    You actually think our offense was moving the ball at will against the Packers?

    Remind me.....what was the score again???

    You have never played the game, Mardro....and it shows.

    It's what you learn after you know it all that counts.

    It's almost as funny as someone saying Favre didn't play bad this year.

    I believe the defense must be built with cornerbacks as primary player rather than afterthoughts. The Vikings secondary, including these critical cornerback positions, are not playing well. It may be coaching, talent, or inexperience, but the play has been horrible.
    I would respectfully disagree with you about the cornerstones of a defense.

    I believe that ballgames are won & lost in the trenches. The Viking secondary was more than adequate last season. However, the front four of the Vikings are put much more pressure on the opposing QB last season. Ultimately, pressure on the QB from the line makes your secondary look better then they are.

    I find it very hard to fault ANY secondary when the front line can't hold contain and allows QBs to keep plays alive with his legs. The Vikings could have Deion Sanders, Darrell Green, Troy Polamalu, & Ronnie Lott in their primes in the defensive backfield and they would fail at what the current Vikings secondary is asked to do. There just isn't a way to cover an NFL WR corps for more than 4 or 5 seconds per play. Ultimately, it is up to the line and, if necessary LBs, to make sure the QB can't just break contain and extend a play.
    +1 and adding to it:

    The fewer guys you can use to be effective in the pass rush, the better your secondary looks. Last season we got pressure with 4, that left 7 to cover passes. Since the Offense could only send 5, we were ahead of the game, and did well.

    This season, we're not getting there with 4, 5, or 6. That leaves us - in the worst case - 1 on 1 with opposing receivers who LOVE 1 on 1 match-ups. Did you see Rodgers redirecting Jennings in the end zone? Think that works with a 2 on 1?

    Point is, the Defense is driven by the line. If your front 4 are getting it done, your defense thrives. If they aren't...well....you wind up 3-7.
