    Re: We need a passing attack to keep Peterson healthy!

    Another huge coaching blunder was on the Vikings first set of downs. Why on earth did Chidress call for a run to the right when he needed just one yard?? He has two studs on the left side of the line and should have ran to the left. Every Viking fan out there knows our weakness is the right side of the line. Sure it was only one play but that set the tone of the game. Very poor play call.

    Re: We need a passing attack to keep Peterson healthy!

    I see what you're saying about the passing game. I think, even if we do get a decent one, it will have rely on the running game. Play action will become a threat because AD has pounded the defense time and time again. He is a work horse, loves to punish people, and it's his instinct. Look at the end of some of the runs against the Bolts. There is no way to change his mentality. It was a hit that all secondary guys take on a back that comes rumbling free from the line (or a one on one takle). It could happen one the first carry or the last (that's just the nature of the game). AD would be pissed if you limited his carries or tried to teach him to run different. Hell, the guy wanted to come back in the game! If Chilly put him back, I'd be singing a different tune.

    I do understand the idea of a passing game to ease the hits on AD. We don't have one this year, and we can't get one this year. Run the guy! We can't predicate his touches for next season.

    Re: We need a passing attack to keep Peterson healthy!

    I think AD runs best North to South and hitting the crease ASAP. It does depend on the OL making those creases. I just haven't seen him run any sweeps to say ya or nay (but I wouldn't be against it). I do think running CT more would benefit the Rook. Chester is a good back, and using him to also wear down the defense is a good thing.

    I get what you're saying V4L. I would give my left nut for a decent passing attack (saving the rigth one for a SB). It's just a matter of patientce and believing that the Gods will smile upon us in the near future.

    Re: We need a passing attack to keep Peterson healthy!

    A balanced attack with a stout D has been my recommendation all year.

    Seems I have taken alot of heat for even thinking about passing.
    Were is that crowd today (namely thier leader).
    Strangely quiet except for a few brave souls who stood up in this thread.

    ;D

    Re: We need a passing attack to keep Peterson healthy!

    Yeah, I'm tired of seeing 8 in the box against AD. We gotta get a QB in here next year, and I mean ASAP. Can't believe AD got hurt, but hey it's the NFL. Having AD hurt sucks man, it really does. :'(

    ALL DAY!!!
