    keep in mind, that stat also includes guys like Kluwe, who had one kickoff for 68 yards (there's approximately 24 of them)
    so its not as bad as it first looks, he's more or less middle of the pack

    where does he rank in terms of field goals made? and give me his clutch kick numbers. Our coaches obviosly want accuracy over big leg potential

    not bad, honestly though I think the thread needs to be refined a bit more. I think the kickers being compared need x number of 40+ attempts, and y number of 50+ attempts, as its not fair to compare kickers that haven't
    kicked anything over 50 yards

    Exactly, Longwell has been cash-money his whole career with us.
    If I could choose to have any kicker in the league I don't think I could bring myself to take anyone else.
    Unless I'm mistaken, since Longwell came to the Vikes he has only missed one fieldgoal under 45 yards and it was a block.
    He's also made all of the big kicks.
    What else could one ask for?

    Also, there's no special teams stats other than kicking, but I think we all know where we stand in special teams coverage

    Re: Where we stand, week 13

    Here is another one

    Team Sacks
    Minnesota 8th with 33 sacks through 12 games

    in comparisson

    Bears 15th with 24

    Packers 26th with 20

    I think our pass rush had improved alot,last year we finished with 33 sacks but no individual had more than 4 sacks
    meaning we had to blitz alot last year to get to that total,
    this year we have 2 players who can potentially go over
    the double digit sacks,One is already there (jared allen with 10..5) and the other is kevin williams who needs 1.5 sack to reach 10 on the season.Since we have the luxury of getting prssure with just the front 4 this has resulted in our pass defense going from last in the league to being 21st (still room for improvement)

    A championship team needs more than one #1 statistical leader. Right now our only #1 is Adrian Peterson's rushing the ball.

    Rushing defense can be tightened up, and passing defense should be improvable to the top ten. We need a better turnover differential. Special teams return and coverage units need to keep improving. The passing attack of course is where the biggest room for improvement is.


    Go Vikings!
