    I like this in depth analysis of the Vikings, even if it doesn't do us any good, in terms of future expectations. But lets just hope that we can be another one of those rare exceptions that fare well.

    You just wait if we make the two back system of ground and pound work for the rest of the year and playoffs everybody will start praising us and some teams will even try the same system just like teams do with anything that finally works.

    We are better now threw the air offensive wise, but the soft spot remains the Passing D#
    What we are going to do in the Playoffs remains to be seen of which opponent we play.

    What kills me is that we have seen a two back system work time and time again in the NFL, but it just doesn't catch on.

    Not? depends on what your expectations are. if you look at the yardage gotten by both i think it catched on pretty well. if you look game-wise you deal with the Peterson injury

    ...Adrian Peterson might be the sure rookie of the year, and Kevin Williams and Pat Williams are two outstanding defensive linemen, but teams don't really win in the playoffs by running the ball and stopping the run.

    They win by passing the ball and shutting down the other team's quarterback with good pass defense...
    Ousiders usually do a fairly good job of making statements based on a semblance of information.
    But, the yards given up in passing is once again being focused on rather than the pts given up.
    The 9ers game was won, more than any other this year, by some passing and shutting down the QB.
    The 9ers have questionable team talent and teams like the Packers destroyed the Vikings with the pass.
    I like Frazier's coaching and believe they do have a chance in the playoffs of keeping other teams in check.
    If they can do those sustained 8 min. drives they can beat anyone.

    LMFAO HOLY Shit! ok Yeah
    i AGREE Santa is fake! Thanks for the reality check! But hey I still think we could suprise the Gb Pud Packers.
    and a cpl other teams. I sooo bad want revenge. I think we are so prime to get revenge on that game. And with Peterson haveing
    3 yard game after the taken out game with them after the 34-0 goose egg. We WANT this opportunity.
    I am THE #1 Sidney Rice #18 Fan ever! Don't Be surprised when this kid IS a superstar! He is humble, smart, tough, talented and has alot of character! Takes alot of pride in his work, team, fans and life. Watch out for this kid! I think he is awesome! Everytime he touches the ball its MAGIC!
