NFL Network Begins “32-In-32″ Series; Vikings Ranked 3rd

Posted by Mike Wobschall on June 8, 2010 – 8:30 am

NFL Network and NFL.com asked fans to rank all 32 teams and the masses have spoken – more than 100,000 ballots were cast.

Not surprisingly, the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints came in ranked #1, with the Indianapolis Colts ranked 2nd and the Vikings ranked 3rd.

Now that all 32 teams have been ranked by the fans, NFL Network has begun it’s “32 teams in 32 days” series where each NFL team will be profiled according to the fan’s offseason voting, with highlights from last year and NFL Network experts sharing their predictions for the 2010 season.

The series kicked off Monday night on the NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access” with a profile of the St. Louis Rams (ranked #32) and it will continue all the way through the Vikings, Colts and Saints. The Detroit Lions – ranked #31 – are up next and the other NFC North teams are ranked as follows: Chicago Bears #22 and the Green Bay Packers #6.

    Mike,

    A great research project for you would be to investigate how many times Leslie Frazier used Jared Allen as a linebacker/cornerback instead of a defensive end. I DVR most games and replay the game “at least 15 times” according to my wife. Leslie has a pretty vanilla defense compared to most NFL defenses, and his “pet” trick play is to drop Jared into coverage and blitz the opposite cornerback from about 20 yards deep. It just doesn’t work. I think he runs it about 2 times a game on average. I would like to know how many long plays and/or first downs are given up when this play was called last season. I saw it fail over 20 times, and I saw it succeed twice against Dallas (only because Edwards beat a double team twice). Could you find out the exact percentages and relay them to Frazier and Childress for us Viking fans. BTW he ran the play on 3rd and 10 in OT against the Saints, when the Saints got 9 yards which was enough for them to go for first down on 4th and 1. HELP US PLEASE.

    Dave, I noticed that also several times and maybe once or twice Allen was in position for a int. but he dropped them ofcourse! He is the 2nd best pass rusher not pass defender in the league, so rush him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    - Vikings go 12-4 again and win NFCN and pack there bags for Texas it’s just that simple no more no less it’s Vikings year and Peterson year to have the least amount of fumbles in his so far short career
    – Packers go 11-5 and battle Vikings in NFC Championship game but Vikings will move on to the big dance
    – Bears go 9-7 with Culter throwing 20+ INT’s but there defense improves to make things interesting in th Norris div.
    – Lions go 5-11 while making strides Stafford will have a better year under center but see them few away from being viable in the div.

    The Packers are going nowhere, fast, this year. They will lose doubles to both the Vikings and the Bears..plus the Lions will pull one away. The Packers are all caught up in their advanced stages of corruption from the top down with adverse leadership. Their Favre wounds continue to fester and the team can’t show more than a Chinese Fire Drill spectacle. They are in the last gasp of total mediocrity and another 36 year sabbatical. They woun’t have a chance to change until AFTER Bagman Murphy, Wide-eyes Thompson, and Choo-Choo are sacked at the same time.The sooner the better so Idletown, while remaining ‘ideltown’, can recapture the wedding business to keep the Atrium solvent.

    The sad part is for the last of the goodguys: Driver, Kampman (now at Tampa or Miami), and the few others.
    The Pack will not go better than 5-11…and good riddance. Maybe Bagman Murphy can get another appointment from Goodell like he got right after pay-back time behind the Favre shanghai! Anybody else notice that???

    If Favre returns and Sullivan makes the anticipated improvement as a second year starter. And with the combination of the of two headed monster[petersen/gepthart] running and our now elite receiving corps .Did i fail to mention what many viking fans know if we had EJ Henderson against the Saints in last season’s play offs the Vince Lombardi trophy would be in minny nuff said.
