    Re: Will We Ever Have Another Dominant Offense

    Defense wins championships.

    And honestly, if we had a top 5 defense, I would be very happy to have our existing offense. But, add a tougher RB with better production and numbers. I like MeMo but it doesn't seem like he can stay healthy.
    Even babies know the difference.

    Vikes need a big running back.A 260 pounder built like a tank or the bus,to send up the middle.ONly problem I have with Tice are the runs he calls up the middle.Bennet and Moore are very good when they're running towards the sidelines and get one on one.But they're not big enough to send between the tackles.Robert Smith could do both,that's what made him so good.Once he got past the D-Line,he was gone.

    We need a new coordinator FOR SURE. Just because they now have the ability to simply get plays to the quarterback doesn't mean they're being effective. I still find myself screaming at the TV after stupid runs and 3 and outs. We have several awesome recievers and the Whiz, Pep and Birk back next season. Sign a monster Oline in FA and the Vikes will be back in the top 5. DUMP LONEY.

    Yes it does.

    I wouldn't mind a few years of stalwart defense. High powered offenses have gotten us nowhere.

    Re: Will We Ever Have Another Dominant Offense

    I would love to see our offense upgraded just a touch and the defense filled in in the offseason. One more solid linebacker, a little youth as reserves for the DBs and that D could easily be Top-5 next season. The offense with a healthy Pep, a prepared and mini-camped K-Rob and a healthy Burleson, and a ready sophomore in Williamson would be very productive ... especially if they somehow upgrade at RB, but MeMo or even Onterrio would provide plenty with that offense.

    Purple People Eaters weren't our only legacy, the Vikings had a superb defense in the late 80s and early 90s with Browner, Doleman, Millard, Thomas, Randle, Noga, Lee, McMillian, etc.

    I want THAT type of defense back again...extremely aggressive and hard hitting...I remember Joey Browner would just lay people out sometimes.

    I also miss the o-line we had in the 90s, with guys like McDaniel and Christy. As for the high-powered offense, forget it...just get a bunch of solid blockers and we'll be good to go.

    Re: Will We Ever Have Another Dominant Offense

    The only two problems I see (barring our many injuries) is LBs and RBs. We haven't had a serious threat via running attack since Robert Smith. Since running backs rarely pose a threat their rookie season, I say we try to aquire a solid veteran in the off-season.

    Re: Will We Ever Have Another Dominant Offense

    Give me a dominant defense over a dominant offense ANY DAY!!! Dominant Defense got the Vikes to FOUR Super Bowls
    Dominant Offense got the Vikes to NO Super Bowls

    That tells the whole story...except we need to have just a LITTLE BETTER offense so that the next time we go to a Super Bowl, we WIN!!!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
