    The Vikes arguebly have the best secondary in the league now with the addition of Sharper and Smoot. Can anyone name a better secondary? maybe baltimore but they lost fred baxter. I can't think of a better secondary.
    Baltimore. They lost Baxter but got Rolle! He is a big improvement over Baxter!

    What makes a great pass rush?

    A lot of good points so far. My take on a good pass rush are;

    1. I'd love to see a speed DE that could fly in off the edge and level the QB, but right now we don't have that person. Closest one would be Johnstone. Otherwise, our DE's are basically a bull rush style, good for collapsing the pocket, but they don't get around the outside very well.

    2. Pressure the pocket up the middle, force the QB out of the pocket and to the outside so the DE can take them out. PWill and KWill should be more than able to do that.

    3. Disrupt the blocking scheme of the offense with stunts and blitzes. Here is where I think we can make the biggest improvement. With the newly designed backfield we have, we should be able to blitz safeties or corners now. Not something we've done much of the last few years, at least not successfully.

    4. Lastly, if the players are picking up the schemes alright, I think we have the personel to be able to mix in a zone blitz from time to time also.

    I hope we develope that real strong pass rush we want, because I think with PWill, we will be forcing alot of 3rd and longs this year. Nothing is more demoralizing for an offense than to be in that situation and have your QB totally eaten alive by the pass rush!!! :spam1:
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to slide into it broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming at the top of your lungs......
    "WOW, What a ride!"

    a good pass rush comes from everything stated here already in this thread plus a good offense. If your offense scores early and often that makes the opposing team's offense more 1 dimensional and consequently, your defense can focus more on the pass.
    True.

    I'm kind of sick of the defense-wins-championchips mantra... It may be mostly true, but way over emphasized.

    Bottom line; you score more points then you give up, you win.
    Sorry, but its true IMO.
    Except when the rams won...


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    The Rams didnt have a bad defense either.


    Over the past few years our defense has been, bad.

    When they won the super bowl they were scoring a lot, but their defense was decent.

    If you could say, except when the Rams won.....


    That would mean we should have won in 98.... but we didn't.... Gary
