    I watched the Vikings/Packers playoff game last night. I know its not new news, but I thought I'd post my comments here since there haven't been any signings and there is only so much draft talk worth reading.

    I tried to focus on Darren Sharper, and the players that won't be starting for us next year.

    I think this was the best game the Vikings played all year last year, and one of my favorite games to watch.

    Favorite moment: When the announcers stated that green bay looked "shell shocked" when being down 17-0.

    Darren Sharper: I know he had to cover for how bad the rest of GBs defense is..especially Carrol, but he flat-out sucked in this game. It was his missed tackle that allowed Moe to score on the opening drive. Also on both of Randys TD (especially the first one) he was either out of position, or the packers were not expecting the Vikings to pass to Randy. He had bad angles both times and may have been able to make a play if he was a little closer. I hope he plays better for us, then he did in that game in GB.

    Randy Moss: The dude kicked a$$ in this game. harris is not a bad corner, but He made him look like Robert Tate...with a broken ankle... in a wheel chair...tied to a rock...on ice.

    Claiborn: He played very well. He sacked Favre on GBs first drive causing them to go 3 and out. He seemed to be all over the field making plays.

    Winfield: Excellent game, interception, couple broken passses, nice stops in the running game.

    Russel: Also played well. Interception, nearly 2. A couple of nice hits.

    The defense in general played well. Chavous was out. Not sure if that had anything to do with it.

    EJ: He was the only defensive player I think consistantly played poorly in this game. He gave up multipe big plays be being out of position.

    Running backs: Bennett clearly looked much better than Smith in this game. Moe looked good, until he was injured. Moore fumbled on a punt return (at least we recovered it) I don't think any of them got as many yards on the ground as Daunte, who had an amazing game.

    Offensive line: Pass protection was very good. Daunte had all day. Run support was not as good. Seemed like they were penalized too much.

    Morton Anderson: Slipped on a field goal attempt. It was considered a block and recovery by GB. Also we punted in what would have been a field goal attempt for most kickers. I think it would have been from 46 yards. We need a new kicker!

    Favre: One of the worst games I can remember him playing. I believe he threw 4 interceptions. He also threw an illegal forward underhand pass into the endzone.. he was way past the line of scrimage. It a viking caught it, it would have been an interception. The announces laughted it off.. only becuase it was favre. Also Joshtone made a late hit on Bubba Franks. There was some pushing after that. Farve was throwing punches as Offord. No penalties for that. There was for Johnstones late hit though.

    Anyway. I enjoyed watching the game again. Anybody have any comments to add?
    What I heard from this is we made a mistake letting Randy go and Sharper was a bad pick up. Plus, we had a kicker that should have never been signed to the team last year.

    Or

    Some of the guys we had in our secondary weren't doing as bad as we made them out, cause they have been covering for EJ and others, like Sharper may have been doing on the Packers. And that most of our pickups this offseason were made to distract us from being upset about the dismissal of Moss. Plus, we had a kicker that should have never been signed to the team last year.

    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    LOL, Playin Ya'll
    Actually I don't think you are that far off. I think its an exaggeration of what I was saying. And yes I agree with others that have said that this is just one game and you can't put too much into it.

    Alot of people are excited about next season, and we all should be. I just think its interesting that several of the players who made big plays in our best game of the season last year won't be back.

    Claiborn killed a drive with a very nice sack, he also made several other big plays. Russel killed a drive with an interception, also broke up a pass and had a couple nice hits, Moss had 2 touchdowns and made a pretty good corner look like my grandma all day. Will new guys make up for this? Overall, probably. But its something to think about.

    I'm not sure how I feel about sharper yet. He did look bad in this game. I have seen him make lots of big plays in the past.

    I still think Sharper's going to be an asset for you guys. Stuff was majorly messed up with our secondary last year. Sharper contributed to it, but he's still a vet and has been the "quarterback" of the defense for several years.

    That said, you're going to be looking to replace him in a couple years, easily.
    Have you ever seen a race of turtles, and they all go the wrong way instead of towards the finish line?

    I'm around.

    Just waitin' for the draft...can't wait for it. Then, the smack can truly start up again. This is all just smack for show right now.

    The only thing the vikes need out of Sharper is his leadership and his knowledge. How many times did you see WR's running a deep slant against the zone and Russell was always in the wrong spot and getting burned. That should not happen with Sharper, he knows where to be. With Smoot and Winfield shutting down the outside Sharper will make the pass D much better as long as E.J. and the other LB.s can stop the short stuff.

    If all you needed was leadership and knowledge Beikert would still be here. You actually have to have the physical skills too.

    Russells problems were not that he was in the wrong spot. He was playing where Cotrell put him. In 2003, the defense got a lot of interceptions, but got burned by running on the outside. The system was meant to stop the outside running.
