    Firstoff, what do they expect?
    If you look, those are all defensive players with the exception of Marcus Robinson.. Well if one unit of your team is on the field at all times, someone will get hurt..

    As for us dropping in total defense rankings.. We go from #1 to #2 against the run, and from #18 to #26 against the pass for a total of #12 in the league.. So we lost 5 spots in total defense in a matter of a game.. Nice to see that BJ can screw up our defensive rankings as well.. >

    Our offense is 9th in the entire NFL for time of possession. They have no problem keeping the defense off the field they have a problem putting the ball in the endzone.

    Vikings | M. Robinson questionable for Week 9
    Tue, 31 Oct 2006 17:24:49 -0800

    Minnesota Vikings WR Marcus Robinson (back) will likely be listed as questionable for the Week 9 game.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Vikings | Birk injured Week 8
    Tue, 31 Oct 2006 17:22:04 -0800

    Minnesota Vikings C Matt Birk (knee) suffered a hyperextended knee during the Week 8 game. It seems likely Birk will be able to play Week 9.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Vikings | N. Harris injured Week 8
    Tue, 31 Oct 2006 17:19:20 -0800

    Minnesota Vikings LB Napoleon Harris (wrist) sustained a dislocated wrist during the Week 8 game and had his wrist put in a cast. If Harris is unable to play Week 9, LB Ben Leber or LB Dontarrious Thomas could replace him.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Vikings | P. Williams expected to be fine for Week 9
    Tue, 31 Oct 2006 17:16:21 -0800

    Minnesota Vikings DL Pat Williams (knee) is expected to be fine for the Week 9 game.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Vikings | K. Williams injured Week 8
    Tue, 31 Oct 2006 17:14:23 -0800

    Minnesota Vikings DL Kevin Williams (ankle) suffered a high left ankle sprain during the Week 8 game. He was able to remain in the game, but it is uncertain if he will be ready for Week 9.

    Wonder what our defense rank would be if the offense could have stayed on the field a bit longer (even though we led in time of possesion) and scored some points.

    Kevin Williams will probably play.

    Napo may have a hard time but honestly I don't think his loss would be one so great the team could not overcome.

    Who cares? The only stats that matter is the Win Loss stats 4-3
    You don't get any wins based on rankings.
