    [size=13pt]Vikings: In dire need of a shot in the arm[/size]

    After falling below .500, the Vikings realize they need to stop their losing streak now if they want to earn an NFC playoff berth.

    Safety Dwight Smith acknowledged that the defense is worrying too much about a lack of scoring support from the offense, which might have diverted the focus.

    "We have to stop worrying so much about what's going on on the other side of the ball and get back to detailing our work," said Smith, who won a Super Bowl with Tampa Bay after the 2002 season with a stout defense and an offense that didn't get going until the end of the season. The key for that team, Smith recalled, was believing it could win each game solely by dominating on defense.


    This is not good.

    Sounds like some people need to concentrate on what they are supposed to be doing and let the coaching staff deal with the other side.

    I actually think a 5-2 run will also get them in the playoffs...

    Agreed. They need to get back on task and stay focused. No doubt a fun aspect of the job for Tomlin.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    IF the defense can just concentrate we will be a good team, we saw how dominant they were early in the season!
    We just need them to be dominant, and not to think about scoring points for the offense!

    Re: Vikings must figure out how to stop slide

    Talk of 6-1 or 5-2 finish is crazy with an offense that averages 16 points per game. We are paying umpteen million dollars for an offensive line that couldn't block a popup ad let alone a pass rush! Even if they could slow down a rush our quarterback can't throw past 30 yards without help from a strong wind. Think we should settle with this being another "rebuilding" year.
