Ok, someone who is watching the game tell me what the heck is going on with the incompletes to Nate Dawg. All that NFL shows is Johnson incomplete to Nate Burleson, Johnson incomplete to nate burleson, Johnson incomplete....

Are they overthrows, underthrows, high..one hoppers, good defense, is nate dropping the ball, do the Vikes have a chance of moving the ball offensively?

Gracias

I miss Daunte, But Brad did an amazing job on the ending drive. He's the best backup QB in the NFL. He's tough as nails.

i don't miss daunte. Johnson managed the game and didn't press to make a play when the offense wasn't clicking

I would take a Brad that doesn't turnover the ball over a turnover prone Culpepper any day.

I would take a focused Culpepper who is mentally sound over any Qb in the NFL anyday.

It's a shame the coaching staff didn't have the balls to sit Culpepper. I honestly think if they would have benched him he would have regained composure and had more success.

I am satisfied with Brad, just not with the calls. If Bennett gets one more start, I may go postal.

What exactly do you think is different? Looks the same to me.

Besides the fact he was holding the ball way to long.

This game plan is much, much better than the one they had with Culpepper. The quicker routes, the comebacks and the quicker 3 and 5 step drops give the offense much better rhythm and help to set up the longer passes. With Culpepper they always ran those long developing vertical patterns which made him hold the ball and take all of those sacks. With our offensive line we can't hold the ball, it's got to get out of there quickly. I think if C-Pep would have been using that system earlier in the year, we woudl have been more successful.

Pep just needed to work on a few things.. I would take Pep over Brad anyday.. But i'm loving Brad's desisions.. Pep needs to learn from him

THe playcalling today was very bad, but I'd still take Pep over Brad because today there were several times when the play went to crap and Pep would have scrambled for a gain, but Brad had to stay in the pocket. In Brad's credit he did avoid the sack a few times, but I still miss the scramble factor that we had with Daunte because no defense is ever ready for it.

Culpepper is too indecisive, always scrambling because he hadn't thrown the ball. This lead to sacks and turnovers.

The routes were just as quick with Culpepper. Brad Johnson is just a more decisive QB and a BETTER LEADER.

IMO

i'd agree that Pep probaly could have scrambled out of the pocket to avoid the pass rush but he still probaly would have tried to force something when the offense wasn't clicking. i think Pep has trouble managing the game he feels he has to make a big play everytime he touches the ball. Johnson takes what he can get

I know what your sayin, but if you think about it, the week before he got hurt against Green Bay Daunte was the NFL's offensive player of the week for his performance. And he also was doing just fine and leading our team on a drive against Carolina when he got hurt after his long run... so i know what you mean about lovin him as a player when he is not pressin and his head is on right... but i think he is starting to figure out the new type of offense he has and was making a lot of progress. Brad is good for our offense right now though... cause we have a dip and dunk offense without nearly as much firepower as we use to have... and it all starts with our o line up front. I am not giving up.... but damn i can not wait till next year!!! :(

I definitely miss Daunte and think that a few of those deep throws would have been much better with him, that said ... the blitz may have frayed D.C. a lot more than it did BJ. I am happy with the win however we got it. I think that N8 also dropped two or three passes that I am used to seeing him make and that hurt BJs numbers as well.
