“All Day” Gives Vikings 21-14 Lead

Posted by cjsiewert on October 17, 2010 – 4:31 pm

Vikings All-Pro RB Adrian Peterson capped off a 9-play, 49-yard scoring drive on a 1-yard TD run, giving his team its 1st lead of the game at 21-14.

The Vikings started out with great field position at the Dallas 49 after their defense was able to hold the Cowboys to 0 yards in the shadow of their own goal post.

After completing only 1 pass to WR Randy Moss in the 1st half, Vikings QB Brett Favre has found his deep threat receiver 3 times in the 3rd quarter for 39 yards. Moss’ totals on the day stand at 4 receptions for 50 yards.

    I’m glad we were finally able to win a close game. Things looked better on offense today, but worse on defense (other than EJ Henderson).

    Now it’s time to roll into Green Bay and work some magic there. I’m glad Favre finally looked like the injuries weren’t bothering him today

    Purplepeopleeater- Our offense is lost. We are 5 games into the season & have no continuity. Our D makes enough plays to keep it close. Each & every game is a new adventure. We are no further along than we were in preseason

    TWVike – the offense is looking better. They have a long way to go, but better is better. We weren’t getting as many 3 & outs, we only turned the ball over once and Brett wasn’t grabbing at sore muscles halfway through the game. I didn’t think with Brett’s age that he could heal up enough to play a game without some nagging pain, but it looks like that was the case today.

    The biggest problem is the offensive line. They did not look improved at all. Blitzes were still getting through to the QB very quickly and running holes were non-existant. They are what is going to kill us if they don’t improve.

    I can’t understand how a team the Vikings can be soooooooooooooo good last year and this year they stink. The only reason I can see is the players have tuned Childress out and I don’t blame them . He can’t coach. I know every play they are going to run before they do and if I know then I’m sure the team they are playing does. AP lines up with TE and receivers to the right, ball snapped AP runs to right tackled maybe with 1 yard game. Why not try running left and trying to pin the other team to the right. Other teams do it why not us. It is because we don’t have a coach. The owners Ziggy I believe must realize until they fire Childress and get a real coach something like a Gowher type the team is doomed.

    The Vikings have to figure out how to score more points. With all the talent on the offense, they should be scoring like crazy. The should be play action every play by Brett. He can’t move fast, but he could fake his throws and hide the ball…but he needs to do it more often. The coaches have to get creative…with the speed on this team, why aren’t we seeing reverse plays? Flee flickers and other fancy stuff? Keep the offense on the field so the defense doesn’t fall apart and get hurt! In the play-offs the defense can carry us where we are weak in offense. Go Vikes!

    The O-line stinks. Period. Favre may not last through the season.
    Forget drafting a QB after Brett is gone, and develop Webb. Draft some big but agile tackles and a bigger center. AP should end up with the most yards gained in history, but not with this line.

    Have you noticed that Brett does not audible as much this year. They need to let him make adjustments at the line, like in the second half in Chicago last year.
