    Where is the O line problem this year?

    Last year, the right side of the O line was awful and their inability to pass block was (for many) the #1 issue to correct going into the draft.
    I realize Loadholt is a rookie and it will take some time but so far... this years version of pass protection is'nt any better than last years. With a 40 year old Q/B, and the lack of protection, it wont take too many more hits until we are once again arguing whether it should be Tjack or Rosenfels starting and that is a scary thought. What do we need to do to secure that O line this year before Farve gets killed?

    Probably blocking better on the OL would go a long ways towards fixing it.

    They did seem to step up in the second half. Overall they could have done better though.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    Good idea. I wonder how big that kid will actually get. I hope they feed him so much and he becomes the biggest human ever
    We're bringing purple back.

    I have also noticed a problem with the Vikings offensive line. Farve does not have a pocket for long! Which is obviously why he is getting knocked down a lot. I fear he will get gun shy or get injured if it keeps going this way! :'(
    Skol Vikings, let's win this game,
    Skol Vikings, honor your name,
    Go get that first down,
    Then get a touchdown.
    Rock 'em . . . Sock 'em
    Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!
    Go Vikings, run up the score,
    You'll hear us yell for more. . .
    V-I-K-I-N-G-S
    Skol, Vikings, let's go

    Favre has a lot of years under his belt...I really dont worry about him getting gun shy.

    Hurt however, is another story.

    The Oline problem
    is all over. They have missed more blitzes this year then they have picked up. Farve read alot of them, but he was getting hammered all game long.

    The RBs, FB, and TE's are also missing blocks. CT was about 1 minute late on one of them. Farve cant take many more hits like has so far. I dont think anyone wants Tjoke or Sage back there.

    I personally think the Oline problem is worse then the poor pass D we have.
