    When Adrian Peterson visited Lions headquarters before the NFL draft, one thing stuck out....


    “We have got to go in and slam the run,” Marinelli said. “We’ve got to take this run out.”

    I say, good luck with that game plan.
    If that's it ...you lose ........AGAIN.

    What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. Its the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"

    a decent read from the other side's writers..

    When the Lions play host to Minnesota on Sunday, how they stop the run will be critical. The strength of the Vikings' offense is the running game, and they likely will want to run as much as possible to control the ball and keep the Lions' passing attack off the field.
    just means Tjack has to get some things done this game.

    and when Kitna complete's his 3rd pass to a Defender, we'll have a TD battle between our D and our O.

    On the strength of one dominating performance, the Vikings' pass defense has gone from tied for worst in the NFL last season to a tie for 11th, but the first real test is still ahead....

    The Vikings want to keep Adrian Peterson from having to carry the full running load on his shoulders, but it looks like they won't have much of a chance on Sunday.....
