    Green Bay will exploit Shepherd and Allen.

    Our pass rush better be spectacular or better.
    Meh, our pass defense is doing just fine. Currently ranked 6th in yards per game allowed. Number one in yards per pass attempt.
    If the packers want to give up on the run early I am just fine with that.
    GB also has to rely on their makeshift OL... Last time they saw our DL, Aaron Rogers came out looking like one of Rothlesberger's dates.

    You're good at pulling up history.

    However, history is just that--history.

    History ain't gonna put any points on the board.

    Couldn't some of the reason they weren't tested be that the D-backs were covering well enough for the pressure from the D-line to get to Romo enough for him to dump the ball off?

    Hmmmmmmmm?

    Crazier yet, 3 of our 5 teams we've played are top 10 in the league for passing yards per game:

    4. Cowboys
    5. Saints
    6. Lions
    13. Dolphins
    25. Jets

    Packers are #10.

    That may well be part of it, but doesn't change the fact that they weren't tested.

    I think Cowboys passed once on third and short? Stupid, and it probably cost them the game.

    I hope our secondary plays well......but for now they are a weak spot to be targeted. I agree that could change if they continue to improve. At least I see real effort from them.....unlike other parts of the team.

    I see you have 666 posts. I'll take that as a sign!

    Seriously, I agree. Everyone wants to see this Vikings team as the same as last years team; it's far from it.

    I have a difficult time getting giddy over barely pulling out a win, at home, against a 1-4 team.

    This team will need some lucky breaks to win, despite all of Green Bays injuries. I don't see a lot of lucky breaks at Lamblow.

    Food for thought...

    This team is loaded with talent
    Teams do turn things around mid season
    If anybody can turn things around, it's a team full of talent.

    The glass is still half full, even if it is dangerously close to the edge of the table.

    I agree, he didn't but you have to agree he looked deep several times and wound up checking down.

    When that happens, you are usually seeing good coverage down field.

    Was it only the CBs. I doubt it. Probably had alot to do with S help and at least the MLB.

    On a side note, on those "Several" times, there was pleanty of time for a DLmen to get to the QB and that didn't happen either.

    They gave up on the run when they implemented thier scheme. Mix in Grant is out, OL is a mess (worse than ourse) and they have no running attack.

    Excellent post my friend.

    Hard to see what is actually happening down field on TV, but I thought the checkdowns were a prime example of good coverage downfield by somebody.
