    If that isn't the definition of a smirk then I don't know what is.

    Re: Vikings won over by talents of 'changed' Jared Allen

    Thanks for the great article Singer.

    These quotes are getting me so pumped for the season. A big piece of what the Vikings defense was missing.

    The Vikings landed the top pass rusher available in an offseason the Super Bowl-winning New York Giants influenced with the pressure they generated on New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in Super Bowl XLII.
    Frazier played cornerback for the stifling 1985 Chicago Bears defense that throttled the Patriots 46-10 in Super Bowl XX. "I just remember what (defensive end and Super Bowl XX MVP) Richard Dent did for us in Chicago," Frazier says. "It made mine and (cornerback) Mike Richardson's job covering so much easier with the pressure he put on quarterbacks.
    "Jared is not just one-dimensional," Frazier says. "He can bat down balls, harass the quarterback and stop the run."

    Very nice read indeed.
    Thanks.

    Frazier estimated the Vikings were forced to blitz "35% of the time"
    Thats a bad thing when you run a Cover 2 Defense my friends.

    If you rush only 4, you have 7 players left in coverage.
    The more you rush the less players you have in coverage.
    If you blitz and don't get to the qb the chances of him completing a pass are much higher.
