How will the sack attack of the 2008 DL compare to, IMO, the last great DL of the Vikes, 1993:

Doleman
12.5
Randle
12.5
Henry

9.0
Barker

6.0

Total:
40 sacks from the DL starters alone

Which is better than 25 whole team totals last year.... I didn't bother to look up the total for the starters... too lazy

I thought we had a total 38 team sacks last year... did you include the LB's..??

If the D-line gets 40 sacks this year I think the 2008 squad will probably have the best defense in the NFL and the best Viking D ever. They could be scary good if that happens.

Vikes as a team had 38 sacks but the starting DL was:
Udeze
5
KW


3
PW


2
Edwards 5 / Robinson 4.5

Total 19.5.... not even half of 1993

Not counting anyone else but the starting DL

Wow, you need to go study your viking history.
Go look up the sack totals of 1988.
Doleman/ Millard were darn near unblockable.
I think
Doleman had like 20 and millard had 18.5. That is almost 40 between the right side.
Yet, the Purple people eaters were better then even that, they didn't start recording sacks offically until 1982 I beleive.

1989 was the measuring stick for our defense in terms of sacks. The team had a total of 71 sacks and the following were some of the individual efforts:

Doleman- 21
millard- 18
Noga- 11.5
Thomas-9
(That equals 59.5 for the d-line)

Merriweather-3.5
Studwell-1
Berry-3
Clarke-2.5
Browner-1
Strauthers-1



that was a defense built on extreme pressure. The thing that held the team back was the offense and Burnsies WCO style. I hope to got history doesn't repeat itself ;) ;D

Too true UffDa.... Last year the Giants were #1 as a team had 57 sacks... if the Vike's DL alone beats that all the QB's will be wearing diapers

Unfortunately I was in Germany in 89 and didn't see a single game, didn't see a box score, only knew who won and lost.

I didn't say the "greatest DL"...
I said the "last great DL".
Is there a DL since '93 that you would consider better than '93?

Holy shit! That would be sweet to beat that but I don't see it happening.
What is the most sacks ever by a defensive line for any team?

I think that might be it. Before that, the '85 Bears had the record in the recorded era if I am not mistaken. I don't recall anybody having more than that and since the league tied the hands of the defenses increasingly through the 90's and until recently it would be much harder to put up those numbers.

I dont think pat will get 6. but i do think our D-line could be in the 35-40 range.

Ultra,
I didn't say "the Greatest", I said the "last great"... No DL since '93 compare.
If you can find one then please question my research.

I think Ultra has pent-up aggression from the Army, he likes to take it out on people on PPO.

Better than my pent-up aggression from lack of sex though.

From what I've heard from Allen so far, I think we can expect many entertaining quotes in the future.

I think when his career is over he will definitely end up a TV analyst.
