    What does Philly bring that could cause the Vikes problems?

    What does Philly bring that could cause the Vikes problems?
    A very well run West Coast offense!
    Westbrook is the best back in this system since Marshal Faulk.
    This guy can hurt us.
    The Vikes need to get quick pressure on McNabb & try to keep him out of any kind of rhythm.
    We need to know where Westbrook is at all times & the big question is, can we play the Eagles recievers tight?
    If we can then we should be able to have success.
    What say you purple nation?

    It depends on what Eagles team shows up, this team has been extremely overhyped this week.
    4 of their wins came against the Browns, 49ers, Rams and Seahawks, not counting a tie with Cincy.
    Overconfidence could plague them.
    If McNabb continues to play at the level he has been it will certainly cause us problems, but if we can keep Westbrook contained they will become one dimensional

    Re: What does Philly bring that could cause the Vikes problems?

    What they can bring:

    An offense that is running on high octane and a defense that is statistically a little better than ours...

    We bring the best run defense, they bring Westbrook and Buckhalter.

    We bring AP, they bring the best blitzing defense in the NFL.

    In short, this is going to be a great game!

    Put pressure on McNabb, make him throw and stop their run, we are in it.
    AP and Chester Taylor get involved majorly in the game with great results, we win this puppy!
    Oh and if TJ can keep his head as straight as he has for the last three games and not make many mistakes, we win!

    Re: What does Philly bring that could cause the Vikes problems?

    The quick answer would be their team.
    But seriously, I agree the Vikings will need to contain Westbrook.
    The Vikings need to get a lead so they can run on offense. Philly has a very good run defense, but I think the Vikings rush offense can pound on them and wear them out.

    This is one of the toughest playoff team match ups for the Vikings. We match up best with teams that primarily run. We stop the run to make them one dimensional.

    It will be hard to make the Eagles one dimensional.

    But we did well against the passing Cardinals. Not exactly the same, but still gives me hope.

    Our linebackers need to have a good day. And we need to bring some pressure.

    Keep mistakes/turnovers down, we win.

    Yup this is so true...also the oppurtunity for big pass plays if we can hit the vacant area or find the uncovered or 1 on 1 matchup

    Westbrook, a QB who can keep the play alive, and Johnson's D...that's enough.

    Right now, the biggest thing they have going for them is, their momentum....They are playing at a very high level of play right now, and that is always a good thing for any team.....
    They definetly have us there, but as I always say, thats why we play the game.
    On any given day, any team can beat any other team.
    This game will come down to whoever makes the least amount of penaltys and turnovers.


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Putting pressure on Mcnabb will be good only if we get hits on him.
    I am worried we might try to pressure him to often and get destroyed by screens.
    We can definately win this game.
    They are not going to run the ball on us and probably wont try to.
    The quick slants and comebacks have been killing us,
    hopefully we have been working on that this week.
    If we can hold them down and build even a small lead, i like our chances.










    I guess what i am saying is stop the short stuff and make mcnabb go over the top.
    I am tired of watching this team give up 10-15 play drives because we cant stop the quick passing game.
    I am not a coach so i am not sure what we need to to besides not give up the inside move and use the sideline.
    the eagles will be extermely pass heavy and i hope we can get a few turnovers.
    I put a sig on here before, but it expired?
    Now i have tried again but seem to be retarded.......oh well,

    Floop the bears!
