    Where did he pull the average QB rating of 74, T-Jack had 70 if memory serves me right.
    I also didn't remember BB or Holcomb tearing it up, I suppose they counted the great QBing by our WR core that helped out
    ;D.

    Crud I guess BB had an 88 QB rating so that's part of it.

    Second oh crud, Holcomb had a 73 QB rating.........oh boy.

    Yep a team rating of 74.2 despite T-Jacks 70.8 rating. Can only go up right? Seriously, right?
    i hope so, but it's not guaranteed.. just ask JP Lospman or Rex Grossman... even Matt leinhart and alex smith..

    all those guys regressed in their development.. compared to the years before...

    Nice Read!!


    Minnesota's team-wide passer rating was an almost respectable 74.2 in 2007, and if it gets to 80 with a repeat of last year’s running success, the offense could be one of the five best in the NFL.
    The Vikings played like a 10-6 team in 2007, and all signs point to them as a 10-6 team (or better) in 2008.
    Wow!!
    Wouldn't that be nice.
    As always, barring injuries...Berrian should help the passing game, Rice and Allison and Peterson should improve with added experience, and I do expect our OLine to continue improving.
    How we handle McKinnie's suspension is a scary thought that may hurt our overall playoff chances, but hopefully, all around development/comfort with the scheme will help the team handle the pressure.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    How we handle McKinnie's suspension
    Is he suspended?
    I haven't heard anything about that.

    I would love to get rid of big Bryant, I think he is fat and out of shape, a behavior liability, and I'm a seminole and he's from the U.
    okay, j/k about that last one but seriously, he is a pain in the butt with his inability to control his temper, he's too old to be acting like an idiiot.

    No word about McKinnie yet, but pretty much everyone here would be surprised if he did not recieve some type of heavy punishment from the NFL.

    Let's take a look around the Interweb to see what kind of Vikings' related stuff we can find, shall we?

    The good folks from Cold, Hard Football Facts have taken a look at the Vikings as part of their "32 Teams in 32 Days" feature.
    There are a few pretty interesting little tidbits in there.
    First off. . .
