    LOL.
    pooh.
    I'll take that over.
    The Vikes still have an outside chance at the playoffs, and since the Dallas-Washington game is at the same time as the Denver-Minnesota game, they won't know whether a win gets them in or not.
    But they know that a loss ends their season.

    AP gets no less than 25 touches.
    I hope you're right.
    I wanna see Peterson get as many touches as he can handle. I would also like to see Brooks start with a couple slants , or at least a couple throws. Use Jackson on roll-outs with the option to run on some plays too. Keep everybody as fresh as they can with subs, and just have fun breaking .500 this
    season.



    Me too...but not necessarily with handoffs left, middle, or right, directly into another 8 fan stacked defensive front. We have to get more creative with both he and C.Tay. Swing Passes, Pitches outside, putting either guy in the slot as a receiver, forcing the Broncos to commit a LB or safety to cover them. Screens, passes to the flats, play action fakes to them and then coming back to them after they get to the corners.

    Look....AD and C.Tay are both huge play makers if given the chance. Either one is one step...one fake...or one missed tackle away from 6 pts. The Coaches must find a way to get them the ball in space...so they can get that first step and make people miss tackles.

    In Addition...this type of controlled short passing attack on first and second downs....to be less predictable...keeps the defense guessing more and will open up the run later on. It will more importantly allow T.Jack to build some confidence with easy early short throws. This will help him later with deeper play action pass routes.

    The Coaches need to help him play within his confidence level early on so he can build some momentum and get into a rythm. Denver is going to try to do exactly the same thing Washington did. Our game plan has to have new wrinkles designed to open up the field and allow for more uses of our play makers if we are to have any chance to win at mile high.

    Cheers!

    Five straight wins gave the Minnesota Vikings a chance to control their own destiny. It only took one loss to put their fate into another team's hands.....

    The Vikings are taking an all-hands-on-deck mentality this week as they prepare for Sunday’s game against Denver. That means CB Antoine Winfield (partially torn pectoral muscle) and WR Sidney Rice (high right ankle sprain) were on the practice field this afternoon and, in the word of coach Brad Childress, are “pushing” to be able to play Sunday....

    One of the main questions asked of Vikings players today during the media-access period was about playing in the high altitude in Denver.....

    Ex-teammate Johnson could help: No longer in control of their playoff destiny...

    Moving on: No one is more eager for Sunday's game to arrive than quarterback Tarvaris Jackson...

    Winfield hopeful: Wearing a brace to protect his injured left shoulder...

    Injury report:Defensive tackle Pat Williams was given the day off...

    Vikings safety Darren Sharper said the most important thing about preparing for Sunday's game in Denver won't be making the adjustment to being a mile above sea level in Colorado, but rather drinking a sufficient amount of water before leaving on the trip....

    Antoine Winfield, Sidney Rice and other Vikings aren't 100 percent but want to play with a playoff berth hanging in the balance.

    If today were Sept. 27 instead of Dec. 27, Antoine Winfield probably wouldn't have faced the questions he fielded Wednesday....

    Hopefully this week Adrian can get past the stacked front we'll undoubtably see against the Broncos. If we can't crack AD loose then we'd better make realtime adjustments, and by golly we sure have seen enough to have some idea what to do. We can't wait til halftime to shake it up either. The thin air in Denver won't be as much a problem as the thin ice we've put ourselves on by loosing our grasp last week.

    It would be nice to have all hands on deck with Rice and Winfield back, but if they hurt themselves and we somehow sqeek intro the playoffs that would hurt our chances of winning a game in the postseason.

    Nose tackle Pat Williams missed a second consecutive day of practice Thursday because of knee and elbow injuries. The elbow problem was a new addition on today’s report. Coach Brad Childress expressed no concern about Williams missing Sunday’s game at Denver...
