    Re: Vikings@Titans - Preseason Week 1 - Post Game

    Here is what i noted:

    Good:
    McNabb looking pretty comfortable
    Aromoshudo getting a lot of passes thrown his way, getting seperation
    Longwell still money
    Jaymar Johnson return
    Ponder flip pass on the run

    Negatives:
    Chris Cook continues his poor showing
    Charlie Johnson looks shaky
    General trouble moving the ball
    Joe Webb's INT
    Ponder not moving the football
    Just after the Johnson return, we lined up with 10 men, so another player had to come from the bench
    Offensive line in gerenal
    Not scoring a TD

    Re: Vikings@Titans - Preseason Week 1 - Post Game

    Wasn't fully watching the whole game, but I noticed a few things.

    Ponder: Had some great moments, and had some obvious rookie moments. Shows great mobility, and despite reports of lack of arm strength, he gets alot behind his throws. I like what I see, and hopefully he'll be a great QB for us.

    OL: Iffy at times, good at times. Seems later on our line played quite well more often than not.

    WR: Bleh, not alot to say, some good ones, some bad ones. Jaymar had a few nice grabs, I really would be surprised if he doesn't make the team

    RB: Booker is legit. Great quickness and speed, should be a great third down option.

    Defense: some breakdowns in coverage, some poor DL play and breakdowns vs. the run. to be expected though in the first preeason game. Just gotta tighten it up.

    Didnt see any of the starters at all.. only saw last 2 times we had ball. Was disappointed when i turned on and saw we had no TDs. Dont like seeing Ponder playing with the players who more than likely wont make roster.

    Highlight of the game was random fan yelling vagina at the end of the game.
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

    Re: Vikings@Titans - Preseason Week 1 - Post Game

    Lets see:

    Our CBs looked pretty bad; we did sit our starters, so we may have been "mismatched" the whole game (our 2's against their 1,s our 3's/their 2's, etc.); but generally speaking Cook looked rusty... poor tackling, head not in the game. Asher did not have a great game. Sherels (sp?) looked overmatched.

    LB: looked good, I thought. Erin makes some plays and appeared to have good instincts. EJ was EJ, didn't see much of Greenway though... Brinkley had that one big whiff on Locker I think, but otherwise was solid.

    DL: Underwhelming play..... didn't seem to control the LoS.

    S: Better than usual, but not saying much. Tyrell Johnson did not look lost out there and his physical skill set showed in spots, I thought.

    Offensively.... not so good.
    QB: McNabb looked comfortable, should do fine. Webb breathed some life in the offense but can't do it alone... Ponder was a rookie. I thought he showed some good flashes, had some rookie mistakes, but was alright. Arm strength seems fine, needs to not stare down receivers, but not a bad showing.

    RB: Toby made a cut that made a guy miss... liked that. AD had no holes, didn't show much with nearly no opportunity. Booker had a damn fine game.

    WR: Weak showing. Many drops, poor separation, etc. I expected more.

    TE: Sauce showed up to play. Rudolph shows promise

    OL: Puke. That is all.
    Damnit I can't let that be all. Load looked good from what I saw, but I was not watching much line play. I thought the line did not make holes for RBs but certainly left holes for the DL to come flying in....

    Special Teams: Nice returns by Jaymar.... pretty good coverage on KO, etc. I was pleased.

    That was pretty funny. Taking advantage of the boom mic, I think!

    Confused that Ponder took 3rd team reps instead of 2nd. The O-line looked really bad all around. With moments of good play from Demarcus Love. Our young new D-line players looked pretty good. Ballard looked like a beast out there, and had a big sack. I also like what I saw from D'Aundre Reed at DE. He has an awesome Freeney-esque spin move. Everything else seemed par for the course. Given the team around him, and the different opportunities, Ponder played pretty well for a rookie. I love his escaping ability. He is also great at throwing on the run. Can't wait to see him take a lot more reps as the preseason continues.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    Re: Vikings@Titans - Preseason Week 1 - Post Game

    I was fishing and missed the game but I am watching it on the DVR right now and at this point it looks to me like the defense is going to be a big liability this season. IMHO we are going to take a big step back until some of these new guys can get up to speed. The question is will that take 4 games, a season or a decade.

    The team as a whole looked slow, uninspired and watching the sidelines there was no emotion of any kind.

    Joe Webb looks like he is improving and he does something to remind me of Randall Cunningham every time he plays. The INT was bad but he at least wet back out and went at it again which is good.

    Did not like Asher Allen and cringed when Cook blew his coverage. I was hoping he would step up.

    Does anyone else notice that Peterson and Gerhart just simply run into the O-Line and just get stuffed by our own players? I seen that a lot last year also.
