    Are the Vikings running out of offense?

    http://www.realfootball365.com/articles/vikings/14685

    I'm really starting to wonder if Darrell Bevel is the issue here...

    We have no balance. I am not talking about play-calling balance. I am talking about performance balance. Favre can't do it all. That OL needs help. IMO Peterson also needs help but not as much as that line.

    Re:Are the Vikings running out of offense?

    Thanks for the read my friend. Only true column I actually look forward to reading anymore. :laugh:

    As always, a comment or two for you.....

    a. @ Cleveland. Not a great showing. Grass, Outside, Away.
    b. @ St Louis. Great showing. Turf, Inside, Away.
    c. @ Pittsburg. Not a great showing. Grass, Outside, Away.
    d. @ GB. Great Showing. Grass, Outside, Away.
    e. @ Arizona. Not a great showing. Grass, Inside, Away.

    Threw the GB game in there as a wildcard, not scientific mind you, but it does appear to me that we might just be a team built to win inside and on turf and a .500 team (slightly better) on the road/grass.

    I for one, will be watching with earnest as we face the Bores next week.

    I knew someone did.

    Time to find the "Mudders" on the team and let them play if the "Non Mudders" aren't getting it done.

    That certainly doesn't make me feel warm & fuzzy picturing the Vikes traveling to Philly for a playoff game...

    But, I'm still confidant they can take the Saints... unless they play outside, in the mud, away from Minnesota, at night...

    I've got a article idea for ya....

    The reason the Pats appear to be taking a lackadaisical approach to the rest of the season.

    I know, a bit long, but I figure you could shorten it a bit. Anyways, in a nutshell, they've played both the Saints and the Colts and had thier ass handed to them by both. Maybe they figure there is no need to keep on trying.

    Thoughts?

    Re:Are the Vikings running out of offense?

    I read a stat 13 pass.. 2 rushes in 3rd quarter?

    I understand the running game wasn't quite where it needs to be, but we needed to pound away still while we were up

    You think this team has any "mudders?" Hope you're right.

    Anyways, I don't think we'll need 'em for the Bears. Perhaps the "wildcard" as you call it, is really just the fact that it was a division game (and against Favre's old team, of course), which means the team was just a bit more fired up generally. If so, the Vikes should whup the Bears good & proper this week.

    But this bit about playing on grass is highly disconcerting. Perhaps it's nothing. But the Vikes need lose only one more game (entirely possible) and have the Iggles win out (also very possible--Denver @home, then @Dallas) and we could be looking at January in Philly. That is NOT a game the Vikes want to be playing.
