Ziggy Ansah played like J.J. Watt yesterday!

    Not to my surprise, the Vikings are a work in progress. If Kalil is in a slump, perhaps they can bring in a TE on his side to help him handle the pass rush?
    Good point, the Vikings might want to look at more max protect packages and let the rules of the passing game play in their favor. If Teddy has time, the receivers should be getting open. If not, then there is a bigger problem and we became real easy to defend.

    This game proved Teddy is pretty tough. He was swatted around like a tether ball.

    Glad Calvin and Reggie stayed home. Not sure if that is the only reason the D looked OK.
    Go ahead back up your to close away.

    And it's mind boggling that people still think Spielman is a good GM. Absolutely absurd.
    I'm bloviating douchebag and Ricky is a great GM

  4. Mark Craig ‏@markcraignfl 8m8 minutes ago For the final 56 minutes, the #Vikings held Matthew Stafford to 15 for 29 passing for 116 yards and no TDs. ... And lost by 14.

    Bridge did stare down the receiver on the first pick. But you're going to have mistakes like those with a rookie QB. Hopefully he learns from those mistakes. Carrier pilots refer to that night that they just can't get the jet on the carrier as being "in the box". Teddy might have a few days in the box before he gets it figured out. It's a learning curve. A decent Oline would certainly help.

    Change the fucking record.

    The Vikings offensive line had the second worst performance by an oline in the NFL this season. Teddy was hurried on more than half of his dropbacks.

    Now, the question is whether it's a schematic issue, or personnel issue.

  8. McKinnon (sp?) and Joseph had good games. Joseph was a beast, actually. It's hard to get fired up about a solid defensive performance against a team missing the best receiver in football, and one of the most dynamic dual-threat backs in the game.

    That's like bragging about shutting the Vikings down when we don't have Peterson and Patterson.

    Do you know anything about football? Schematic....lol.. How long have you been watching this o
    line play together for now? Of course it's personnel. A good d line eats these bums up week after week
    and it's been going on for over two years now silly. Peterson was the bandaid for them and now that
    he'll never be back the bandaid is off and the puss is oooozing. Know the game fool....

    Some offensive line personnel do better with zone block schemes, some do not. We certainly have personnel issues, particularly at left tackle right now, but who knows if the personnel we have would do better with a different scheme? Personally, I feel like we need to upgrade the talent across the offensive line, but since I'm not a coach or scout, I figured that I could try to get some information and see if somebody has more insight.

    Load and Sully are doing alright, Ducasse and Johnson are doing poorly, and Kalil is one of the least effective left tackles in the game.
