I was looking at some nfl league wide forums and saw some posts about the top 5 offenses of defenses of both. Many people had Minnesota in the top 5 Offense if we get a WR and top 5 Defense. People around the nation are recognizing the Vikings as a true force in 05'.

My top 5 Offense:
1. Indy
2. Oakland
3. KC
4. Minnesota
5. St. Louis

Defense:
1. Baltimore
2. Pitt
3. Carolina
4. Philly
5. MINNESOTA (fingers crossed)

that looks good to me! i would have to say philly should be in top 5 offense though.. maybe take our place.. we arent top 5 anymore i dont think

and also i dont agree that we are top 5 D yet.. after a couple signings we could be but top 10 maybe

I like it but we are probably more like top 20 Defenses.

I agree with the fact that we still need some improvement to make top 5 on both. One thing to keep in mind that is a positive is that we still have a lot of time to make those adjustments. And it sounds to me like they will be made.

Ont thing I wanted to point out is that we are the only team on both rosters. That sounds to me like we are being recognized as an unstoppable force. They say Defense wins champoinships, but few of those teams that have the defense have the offense to go with it.

I dont know about top 20. We have some talent that will stop a lot of Offenses once they take the field. One thing to keep in mind is that it looks like our addition of smoot has helped our passing d dramatically, and our rushing defense is getting a lot better too. Very few teams in the league have the rushing game AND passing game to bring to the table.

I don't think that just because Oakland got Moss that they are now a Top 5 Offense.

I would have to insert Washington and New England in the Defense top 5.

yeah i was thinking about Washington but I don't agree on NE. They lost their def. coordinator, a top 5 cb in the league and weren't a top 5 defense this year, i think 9th.

I still don't see Oakland in the top 5 in offense, and definately not #2.

I say we have a top 15 offense and defense right now.

If we sign the 2 safeties and have a good draft, I can see us having a top 10 defense and a top 10 offense...that would be sweet.

i think our defense will be better than phillys. whats stopping our defense? a good pass rush? got that taken care of w/ phat pat and we might even get some1 in the draft. coverage? got that taken care of w/ smoot and a good pash rush should also help giving the corners less time 2 cover. our linebackers might be our only concern but if we draft dj or get a good LB r set. now we can play man 2 man and blitz e.j. which he was born 2 do. our 2ndary is way better than philly IMO. 22 probowlers baby!!!! :king:

They always manage to get the job done.

For some reason, their players just step-up.

I wouldn't have oakland at #2 or us at #5 we're definately better than last year, but time will tell how much better we actually are
