    Normally I don't agree with this guy but at least he put some humor to our problems (notice the plural) with our offense.

    Re: what is the problem with our offense?



    According to both the St. Paul Pioneer Press and the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield is sounding off regarding the team's inept offensive output.

    On Sunday, the Vikings managed only three points against a woeful 49ers defense.
    Six days before, the Vikings scored no offensive points against the Patriots.

    Said Winfield on Monday:
    "You have to score touchdowns in this league.
    Field goals, you're not going to win too many games doing that.
    After eight weeks, you would like to see some improvement.

    "I don't know what it is.
    Whether it's the play calling, I don't know."

    Winfield said he thinks the offense is too predictable.
    "You know, run every first and second down, throw third down," Winfield said before stopping himself.
    "I'm going to leave that alone.
    Stop right there.
    I might say something I'm not supposed to."

    A year ago, Winfield was vocal regarding the 2-5 team's defensive schemes.
    And the Vikings responded with six straight wins.

    This time around, the Vikings have two more wins and one less loss.
    But with only seven offensive touchdowns in eight games, we think that the problems run far deeper than any one outspoken defensive back can fix.

    Interesting.
    Where was this story reported
    (link?)?

    I imagine the frustration for the players is much worse than our frustratino as fans.

    I'm glad someone like Winfield came out and said it. It's much better than if Smoot did. If it were anyone but Winfield, P or K Williams or Sharper I might have a problem with it, but a guy playing at his level and who hasn't made a peep all year has the right to make criticisms. The offense does suck, and I'm glad he made the world aware that our defense knows that it can't win games on its own.

    I especially like the CAPS LOCK in the title. It gives the story extra special meaning to me personally.
    Even babies know the difference.

    Has the Viking Ship sprung a leak?

    No, half of the ship is already under water and thats our offense. I think Winfield is trying to get it to carry its own weight.

    The stories were reported in the Trib & the Press yesterday as Kyleo stated in his post. The articles were posted in a thread about the problems with the offense yesterday morning.

    With all the threads that came flying out Sunday & Monday, they were easy to miss. Here's the link to the articles kyleo is refering to;
