    When Leslie Frazier watches film of the Vikings' first two preseason games, the team's new defensive coordinator can't help but be optimistic.....

    By disguising our coverage, and giving the oyher teams QB some phoney presnap reads we should be able to get that extra nano second necessary to rack up some sacks and turnovers.

    The Jets tried to screen against us, and a few draws, as they looked to take advantage of our strong rush, but the speed we have, we were able to read the play and stop them easily.

    An improved pass rush can do miracles for turnovers by forcing the QB to make decisions he shouldn't.

    Hopefully we can get that type of pressure on Favre. He will toss up crap to our DB's and LB's all game long- Or get pulled and replaced by Rodgers. I can't decide which I would rather see.

    It was impressive that the pressure against the jstes first team came from 4 down lineman.If they keep doing that then our pass defense will greatly improve

    Looks like the NFC North is gonna be the Black and Blue Division again...with us and the Bores...and maybe even the Pukers...all having good defenses.

    Agreed, in fact, I'm much more concerned about the puckers than I am the Lions overall.
    I think the Vikes, puckers and Bewars defenses are all going to be nasty.
    The Lions could possibly have the top offense (we'll see), but, this is clearly a Division on the rise.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    I liked how Robison used the QBs momentum and just nudged him right before the QB went to pick the ball up.
    Shot the QB past the ball and he scooped it up.
    I also liked when Robison got pushed beyond the QB on the rush, and the only thing he was concerned about at that time was to slap the ball out.
    The guy is thinking, not just a one track mind.

    TOs are not something you can count on, you can train for but not count on getting.
    The way the ball bounces!

    I am just hoping the D is gonna make all these division rivals heads just spin,Just getting sacks,and takeaways. But I can just see this division being as tight as ever.
