Vikings 2015 Season

Recommended Posts

Rick

After the 1st game where the Vikings looked absolutely tired and putrid, they came to their home opener against Detroit a little more ready to play.

I was not impressed by the offense or Bridgewater but the run game did show some improvement. I have to wonder how much of that is Detroits poor run game D?

The defense definitely came to play and they looked much better. I wonder how many teams can put the Jumbo package 3 TE sets out there against the Vikes D. If they do and they can play it like San Francisco did and they have a decent offense, which SF did not, those will be long games.

The team needs to be able to get into an offensive rhythm and until they do they are no more than a middle of the road team. Adrian Peterson, Xavier Rhodes, and Harrison Smith are studs. I have a feeling we will see more emerge on the defensive side than do on the offensive side.

Teddy better get it going.

He can get out of trouble in the pocket which keeps him out of the Ponder comparison but he can do without the sailed balls and use the long ball a little at least.

I did not have to watch the Monday night game, way past a reasonable time when you get up at 5 for work.

What I noticed against the Lions is that Teddy is showing improvement.  While I don't know if he will ever be a star quarterback, he is an upgrade over Cassel and Ponder.  I am also going to give him the benefit of the doubt as he has only played two games with both Rudolph and Peterson in his offense.  He is also down two o-linemen.  I think in general the offense still needs some time to gel.

Bring on San Diego!

The team the last 2 weeks has looked like a completely different squad! Defense looks relatively solid, defensive line is getting push and putting pressure on opposing QB's and our run game has been established the last 2 games. All of those I think will be needed for the purples success this year. Teddy had good decision making in Week 2 vs the Lions but regressed in Week 3. I'm boarding my plane to Denver tomorrow and will be cheering on our beloved Purple at Sports Authority Field. We need to put pressure on Peyton, if that happens I think we have a good shot at winning.

Vikes offense against Denver's number one Defense and the Denver offense going against our Defense that mauled both Stafford and Rivers.

Mannings O-line is a little shaky. I think this is a close game and favors Denver being it's in Denver.

What do you see coming?

They lost. I missed the game. How did it look to those of you that watched?

It looked like they lost as well :)

 

I only watched the last 2 minutes of the game, and got to see them lose. So not much useful observation from me!

They fought harder than I thought.  I was impressed with Teddy when he had time to throw, but 7 sacks (and many of those 13-14 yard losses) is too many.  Some blame on him but most on the O line.  The D did a fine job against both the run and pass if you take away that one 78 yard scamper.  (and to be fair, I think the same about the run defense that the broncos put up against AP).  But, between the missed field goal and the sacks stalling drives, it was hard to get a lot of offense going.  On one drive they were within field goal range (a long one to be sure) but two sacks put them way outside of range and they had to punt.  That's basically points taken off the board by not having a QB alert enough to get rid of that ball.

Really impressed with Diggs and Wallace.  I'm surprised Patterson is still on the team, to be honest.

      You sure this is from Red Lake in MN?  There’s a Red Lake in Canada that’s a commercial fishery.  Often confused with MN.
    • leech~~
      I agree. A few years ago I got a Hummer Ice 55. I went up to Red lake for a 3 day 2 night trip.  I brought my FL-18 along as a back up. When I was fishing I said, what the heck and ran one in each hole started at the same time with both batteries charged to full at the start of the trip. The Bird-55 died in a day and a half and the FL-18 ran until I shut it off to leave on the 3rd day. I sold the Hummer Ice-55 later that winter.

      Very low power draw i am told on the fl18

      Wouldn't be surprised if the Vex gauge doesn't read the battery correctly, since lithiums have a flatter/higher voltage curve and those meters read the voltage, if my memory serves me right.   Or the Vex just has such low power draw its barely making a dent in it.  🙂

      Lot's of really good reading and points in the above.  Hope they have learned some lessons from the past and the Greed doesn't come back again!  It's always Man's Greed that makes them fail! 😕   "Commercial fishing grew from 200 Indian netters  in the 1960s to a peak of 600 in the 1980s,  with some individuals setting 80 nets, Bedeau  said. With large bonuses from the association, some of them made $80,000 per season, he said. "It was greed," Dickenson said. "The culture  got lost."   "In 1989, the tribe's commercial netters  registered a record 948,000 pounds of walleye."   And this years quota was just about back to that of 820,000.  So did they learn anything? 🤔

      If we could all just follow the same rules, this wouldn't be a discussion. The law shouldn't discriminate.

      I think what he was referring to is that you should care before things go bad, not after.
