    Vikings Have Inquired About Benny Sapp

    Vikings Have Inquired About Benny Sapp

    When last we saw Benny Sapp he was getting stiff-armed into oblivion by Wes Welker during Welkerís 99-yard touchdown catch-and-run on Monday night. After that debacle, it didnít take the Dolphins long to decide Sappís services were no longer required.
    It took only five seconds more for Viking fans to call for the team to pick up Sapp

    Typically when a team cuts a player during the season for lack of production, it's not advisable to pursue that player, unless their is dire need.

    Especially when your efforts should be spent trying to find a WR that'll take the top off the defense.

    I'm seeing a re-occuring theme here.

    On a side note, the last thing we need to do is fix our CB position. Those boys did a pretty damn good job of shutting down the Chargers vaunted "High Flying" deep attack.

    What they need to be doing is finding a 0 tech NT that collapse a pocket so that the QB doens't have all day long to a) Watch the CB's cover the deep threats, and b) check it down to the RB and TE (2nd and 3rd reads).

    As we saw last year, our ability to make a QB uncomfortable is off to a slow start, even though JA and Rob gave it their all last week. All we need is a "Warpig" in the middle to take that pocket (1 or 2 step forward) away so that the QB can't evade the DE's.

    On a side note, go look at were Rob and JA did the most damage. It wasn't on moves that got them in and around the QB deep in the pocket my friends. It was when they made moves that them to the QB up in front of the pocket.

    I was actually pretty happy with our CBs last week. Even Cook looked decent... which was weird...

    I completely agree. Rivers is one of the best QBs in the league, but I thought we did a good job of containment.

    He did have a couple of bonehead plays but that happens, and is expected.

    Again, pressure on the QB is imperative in this scheme. Heck , the one INT Whinny got was a direct result of pressure on the QB.

    What irked me more than our DT's being unable to collapse a pocket was how we used our LB'rs.

    The way we mug the line and show blitz without disguising it just drives me nutz.

    I think the LB blitz's were way overused in that game based on their effectiveness. I think we would have been better off staying with only the front 4 more often.

    The pressure from the front 4 wasn't that much different than when we sent the LB's what seemed like every single down. Made it way too easy for San Diego and Rivers to simply dump off in the LB zones.
