From ESPN Insider:

In truth, however, the best move was actually the philosophical epiphany that took place within the organization. After too many years of ignoring the defense, from both a personnel and salary cap standpoint, the Minnesota brain trust finally concluded that you can't win championships in the NFL by trying to outscore opponents every week.


I agree with his thoght 100%.

I love his philosophy.
"You can't win by trying to outscore opponents"

I mean they can't be shooting for a 0-0 tie that doesn't help you too much. You are always shooting to outscore the opponent LMAO.

Absolutely correct...the years of the Vikings drafting the "best player available" are thankfully gone. You draft for players that are going to fill your most urgent needs...and everyone inside (and outside of) the organization has known for years that the Vikes major need was defense. No one can say that they have not addressed this need in a big way.
