Vikings, Giants Ground Games May Take Center Stage

Posted by cjsiewert on December 9, 2010 – 6:40 am

With Brett Favre’s status unclear coupled with the recent outburst of the NY Giants RB tandem of Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs, Sunday’s matchup at Mall of America Field might end up being a classic ground-and-pound battle.

Last Sunday, Vikings RB Adrian Peterson ran up the score, literally, with 3 TDs while the Giants RB duo of Bradshaw and Jacobs combined for 200 yards and 4 TDs in a victory over the Washington Redskins. And as the old adage goes, ‘if ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’ So why would either the Vikings or Giants veer away from their recent successes running the ball? I can’t think of a reason.

Not to mention that Favre has thrown more INTs this season than any other QB with 18 and Giants QB Eli Manning ranks 2nd in the category with 17 – another reason for both teams to establish their rushing attacks. Despite those numbers, though, both the Vikings and Giants posted convincing wins last week with negative passing TD-to-INT ratios (Vikings 2-4, Giants 0-1).

Another reason why I’m speculating a run-heavy contest on Sunday is caused by Vikings Interim Head Coach Leslie Frazier’s approach during his first 2 games at the helm.

Over the past 2 games, the Vikings have recorded a 78-46 run-pass ratio, with the Giants providing a 62-49 ratio during that same span. Frazier has also emphasized his vision of the team’s identity, stating that they’re at their best when “we’re running the ball and stopping the run.”

Also, let’s not forget that both teams boast dominant defensive fronts with the ability to get after the QB. The Giants defense ranks 3rd in the league with 35 sacks and the Vikings may only rank in a pedestrian 20th place with 22, but have compiled 8 over their last 3 games. These numbers give added incentive for each team’s QB to hand the ball off.

Getting back to the Giants RB tandem, Frazier told reporters on Wednesday that his defense, which has allowed just 113 rushing yards total over the last 2 games, will need to maintain its dominance to stop the Giants dangerous ground game.

“They’re playing well,” Frazier acknowledged of Bradshaw and Jacobs. “It will be a great challenge for our defense. We really hang our hat on being able to stop the run and this will be a week to stand up in that area because once they get it going in the run game it makes Eli a lot better and makes their receivers a lot better. We’re going to have to be right against their run game.”

    If Farve plays, who will come out on top of the INT’s record for this game, Manning or Farve? Whose line is truly most dominant?

    Dear Coach Frazier,
    I need the Vikings to win again. Beat the Giants down! Kick their butts! I like you as a coach, you are a nice guy. I also like Jared Allen – I want him to play football.

    Even though the Vikings are my favorite team.. the more they lose the better chance we can get a good qb out of the 2011 draft. Why are they trying so hard to win?

    Joe Webb, with the hundreds of millions of dollars gambled on pro football each year, any hint of a team “not trying to win” would unleash the dogs at NFL security and the FBI. Vegas would start taking those games “off”, and the whole credibility of the league would come into question. That’s why Vegas doesn’t put out a line on “pro” wrestling.

    I would also like to believe these players are professional enough to give their utmost every game. They certainly are paid enough. Getting the reputation as “lazy” or a “quitter” can devastate a player’s career. Just look at Randy Moss’s situation now.

    Finally, Leslie Frazier will be looking for work somewhere next year (hopefully with the Vikings). I believe that the players would like to see him back in Minny, and by playing hard they can help accomplish that.

    Joe, they are not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs! They’ll be able
    to wheel and deal next year. I honestly believe they could run the table. This
    is a wacky league and anything can happen. Here’s hoping Frazier gives
    the Giants a dose of Favre and TJ. This could come down to who has the
    better running game

    I don’t even know why we are going to play this game!! The Giants are a far superior team in every phase of the game. Just because we beat a depleted Giants team last year doesn’t mean we have a chance this week. They are going to run and pass all over us. Favre should have retired last year to at least give us another chance to evaluate Jackson. Not to mention he will probably be suspended soon for sending inappropriate pictures of his lower region to a reporter. Thank god for beer on Sunday…I predict Giants 35 Vikings 13

    wow, I am so glad for the positive energy in this blog, why should they play this game because they will be blown away, really we should be the first team to not walk on the field because the team we are playing is far more superior. We still having something to play for even if the playoffs are a pipe dream away. THey play for pride & if any team member quits he plays for someother team, period. GO VIKES !

    Brett haters need to shut up. Brett had a bad year because Sidney didn’t have his surgery on time to play the whole year, the team didn’t like the coach and stopped playing well, Brett had no protection, got hit constantly and threw interpeptions while in a hurry, receivers couldn’t catch, defense couldn’t stop anyone, bad play calling, etc., etc., etc. It was not Brett’s fault. It is amazing to me that Brett has still wanted to play with all of his injuries and getting beat up. He is the Ironman! He is The Football player who just wants to play and win! He loves the game but after getting beat up this year I think he will retire. We will definitely miss him! Thanks Brett for all the fun you gave us for 20 years!

    Favre should just rest up for this game. His limited mobility will be a huge liability for him against the Giants. T-Jack may not be the best QB in the league, but he is decent and more importantly in this game, he’s very mobile. We’re going to need a QB who can scramble in this game. I definitely think some Wildcat plays with Webb would be very helpful, too. Here’s hoping Harvin can play, too. We’re going to need him.

    I really liked SHAWN’s analogy on why Favre should start. Shawn said something like: Frazier’s job is on the line, and he wants Favre to start, therefore Favre must be the best choice right now.

    Personally, I do not care that much. Either QB can win with a strong supporting cast. No QB can win with a weak supporting cast! ! !

    I disagree somewhat with the philosophy of emphasizing the run so much. I think we should do what is unexpected and what is tailored to the opposition’s weaknesses. The Giants are not weak against the run, so we should pass more than we did in the Bill’s game. I’m not saying we should just pass, but go to maybe 55/45 pass/run and, especially, pass on our first possession to loosen up their defense. Remember what happened when we only could run – we faced 8 and 9 man fronts. Go Vikes.

    Cariboo Bill, I think Frazier is just trying to rally the troops around running the football and defensing the run. It’s probably a good way to start any football game.

    They do have to take what the defense gives them.

    If the cowboys can demolish the giants with their back up qb, so can we. C’mon now. The giants are a good team, but so are we. I really think that if childress were still the head coach right now, we would’ve lost the last two games and we would be the laughing stock of the NFL. At least with frazier we’ve been able to rebound a little. If favre plays, as long as he doesn’t commit any turnovers, we should be fine. Same with Tjack. One touchdown would be all we need from either qb. Anymore would be great. Run the ball and let our defense create turnovers.

    I’ll be amazed if Vikings beat a team with a winning record between now and the Eagles game. They have yet to do so and with the injuries surrounding our team, it seems pretty daunting.

  24. By Frederick Jones on Dec 9, 2010 | Reply

    xvike, as an ex-coach I have to say that it’s true that if we had not fired Coach Childress we would not have won the last games. HOWEVER…Be aware that the current team, like Dallas, used “It’s the coach’s fault” in their last few games.

    There were schisms on the team, and certainly Brad Childress was partly to blame for that. It is CRAZY to say it is all one man’s fault.

    It’s like saying a divorce is all the man’s fault, or all the woman’s fault. Brad Childress was and is a GREAT COACH.

  25. By Frederick Jones on Dec 9, 2010 | Reply

    The problem with this Viking team (and so many others around the world) is that they FORGOT HOW THEY WON.

    Players become impossible to coach when that happens. We should not blame Childress for the Vikings current record.

    Frazier (who I like) is coaching Childress’s team.

    Fred – If Brad was such a great coach, then why did he lose his players? Keeping the players happy and productive is the number one job of the coach, especially since he chose to put the majority of those guys on the team.

    A good coach is just like a good boss. If the guys underneath you dispise you for the way you treat them or run the system, then why would they produce for you when it counts? There are those of us who have the ethics to work hard no matter what, but that is far from the case for everybody in the world. It’s reality, and it’s the coach (boss) who is to blame when it happens.

  32. By mr smiff on Dec 9, 2010 | Reply

    Frederick, I disagree. I wouldn’t put everything on Childress, but he is largely responsible for our current record. He knew Favre was a 40 year old qb with a bad ankle, but did nothing to beef up the o-line which fell apart on him late last season. He could of at tried to talk Rice into talking to an expert about his hip. He did nothing. His playcalling was stale and predictable, he was complacent with hs team (how are you going to see your players falling about on Soldier Field and not tell them to put on longer cleats?) and he treated them in a high-handed and cold manner. In the end it became difficult for them to be motivated to win, especially when if they did, he would still be their coach. They may be pros, but they’re also human.

    Like the article says, this game is all about the run. If either team stops the run, then that team will win. Turnovers will also be in that teams favor regardless who our QB is.

    So…

    Defense do the job, and we will win. GO Vikings!!!

    (Yeah I know, I just repeated the Viking Mantra for every season ever played. LOL)

    Fred, all I hear you say on these blogs has something to do with Childress. Move on, man.

  36. By CaribooBill on Dec 9, 2010 | Reply

    Childress has a winning record, which you can’t say about very many unemployed ex head coaches. The Vikings, as a team, improved every year with him, until this year. The pretty well stayed pat over the off-season. They under-performed in the NFC championship game and in a couple of other games late last year (Arizona comes to mind) when they could have won home field advantage. Dallas got whacked by the Vikes in the playoffs and Arizona got whacked by the Saints. The Colts wimped out and didn’t go for an undefeated season. This year, all these teams are struggling, some more than others. Is it all due to injuries or coaching – I wonder? The difference between teams at this level seems to be very little and maybe it doesn’t take very much to affect their play, a perception of inadequate coaching, a perception of being hard done by or a sense that we can’t win for whatever reason. If one of those perceptions takes hold, valid or not, changes have to be made to get back on the winning track. This is way too long – sorry.

    Brad made good and bad moves… I’d say spending all that extra money on Favre this year and the wasted pick and salary wasted on Moss for 4 weeks, were his downfall. The real strange x-factor this year is putting in Brett when he cannot win the games! I wonder if wooing the Favre fans into the fold is part of this.. He has gotten us on the TV broadcast map regularly. I wonder how long it will be till we are seen that much again outside of the football network… Never? I feel for Brett and T-Jack. But we should best .500, so lets see something other than creamed corny Brett..

    Cariboo Bill: I agree mostly with what you are saying. I was a Childress detractor early on in his tenure. But his team results continued to improve. This year, I didn’t get the feeling he had his heart in it, or as willing to adjust during the games to win. This is a good point you made earlier. These press conferences that are forced day after day, coaches are to tip their hand as to what they are going to do. They may say we’ll run 75 times with the fullback up the gut Sunday, but in reality they think like you do. Let’s try the run. Observe what the defense is allowing us. Audible or switch to the pass in some run situations etcetera. I’m very happy with the Vikings coaching over the past two weeks. I have always liked Frazier, but I had a lot of concerns about his defense this year, but the past two weeks, they look very respectable again. Balance is great when it is effective, otherwise you go with what works.

    Giants Hammer: Nicks has been very impressive this year. Your franchise has always been impressive on the defensive side of the ball. BUT, your defense doesn’t play against A.P. every week. Jacobs and Bradshaw are a very good duo, but child please! A.P. is over 1,000 yards with a banged up and inconsistent line. Harvin, Rice, and Schiancoe are equal matches to or slightly better than your trio of Boss, Nicks and Steve Smith. Our secondary is a vulnerability, but our coaching staff has done a better job of disguise blitzes of late, and rolling coverages. Can we expect a humble apology from you about 5:00 Eastern time on Sunday?

  41. By Conner on Dec 9, 2010 | Reply

    Ricefield: I have to move on from Chilly too. Manning has been more prone to the pick in games against the Vikings with Frazier as D-coordinator. Let’s hope we continue this trend. Play Offense on a short field Sunday.

    Peterson 06450 and for4nomore: If Favre had his heart in it, he would have had ankle surgery in February. Instead, we begged him back. THe easy thing for him to do would have been to use one of these earlier injuries to say ” I can’t go, or ” I’m done”. He does continue to answer the bell. Respect it. He’s been our best chance with all of his supporting cast going down time and time again around him. Now that some of these guys are clicking again, you say bench him. Loyalty is a two way street.

    Frederick: I have never coached football, so your experience is of value on this. As a coach, you probably had Friday nights where the other team’s coach was extremely knowledgeable about football. His players had the size and speed to overpower your team, but somehow you won. You can have all the knowledge in the world, and the talent to move mountains, but if you can’t motivate, or develop a shared vision between players and coach, your doomed. This is how I evaluate our previous coach and his demise.

  47. By Ricefield on Dec 9, 2010 | Reply

    I don’t know about our o-line not being able to do what they need to do. Frazier talks alot about us fans and the energy in the dome. We know that when the fans are into it, our defense performs very well and I think the o-line can feed off the success of our defense.

    Home field advantage is great and if the d-fence performs we could see a little oneupmanship take place between the o-line and d-line. But I think it will start and end with us fans being in the game and helping the defense.

    But that’s just me.

    Ricefield: Like many a hottie would say to me at farewell… “It’s not you, it’s me!” I do feel the positive energy is building again behind the team. A positive bounce into 2011 is not a bad thing.

    I’m just saying that it isn’t a secret that most of the time, our Vikings play like a different team at home than they do on the road and I give that credit to us.

    If someone expects the Vikings to not perform against the Giants it is good to just remember that.

    Oh and another thing. I don’t get this whole Farve vs T-Jack rift in the fanbase.

    Farve is the starter and its looking like he might not be able to go Sunday. I say, “Oh Well”. If Farve can’t do it, T-Jack can. It isn’t like we’re automatically going to lose because one or the other can’t start.

    As far as I can see, they are both capable of leading the team and like I’ve said since I started coming to these boards a couple of days ago. Our defense is going to decide this game. If our defense does what I know its capable of it won’t matter who the QB is, because we’ll have the ball most of the game anyway.

    My Predictions (as if anyone cares LOL)

    Henderson will have an INT that will be the mirror image of the one he had against the Cowboys.

    Winfield will have an INT.

    Chad Greenway is going to get a strip.

    Jared Allen will have two Sacks, one of which will be a strip fumble.

    AP will have 2 TD and rush for around 125 yds.

    Rice will have 4 receptions and one TD.

    Final score: 24-13 Vikings.

    Ricefield: You have to visualize success. Your fumble predictions may be more visionary. Bradshaw of the Giants has had some difficulty handling the ball this year. I think the defense is going to change their schemes and have a suprise or two for Eli that will lead to those picks you talk about.

  53. By Ricefield on Dec 10, 2010 | Reply

    It’s what I expect. If say we go into half-time 10-0 or 14-7, then I expect Manning to start throwing the ball our of necessity and that’s where the INT’s will come from.

    I actually think there will be more INT’s but 2 is the number I was most comfortable with. Let’s just say at least 2. How’s that?

    Yeah, I’m not certain about Harvin playing so I didn’t make any predictions for him but if he plays, I expect at 3-5 receptions and maybe a couple of rushes.

    Running back a punt is nice but it seems like something that happens when we’re behind in the score and I don’t expect us to be behind.

    For any of my predictions to come to fruition, I think we have to have the lead going into half-time.

    This could all be nonsense but I just have a feeling.

    I completely agree. It’s like people expect we’re going to get a super QB out of the draft when there are just a couple of good QB’s coming out of the draft and there are teams that will have fewer wins than us even if we lose every game for the rest of the year.

    Root for the team you have people and don’t place your hopes on something that just isn’t there to begin with.

    Some of the best QB’s in recent years are Flacco out of Delaware (Rich Gannon’s alma mater), and Matt Ryan out of Boston College. Look at the can’t miss guys that, well, missed. Matt Leinert, JaMarcus Russell, Brady Quinn. Everybody wants a Montana, Elway, Brady, and so on. You’re better off taking a chance on a guy from a lesser know school that has the head and tools to play the position. Draft them in rounds 4-6, so you don’t have a ton of dough tied up in a glorified waterboy for 2-3 years.

    I think this would be great. Favre should end the streak and back up TJ.
    Stand next to TJ give him a vote of confidence and let him start the game.
    At some point they can put something on the scoreboard about Brett’s streak
    stop the game for a minute let Brett get a standing ovation acknowledgment
    from the Giants and then play some football. I think it would a great thing and
    Favre can take a deep breath and relax. If he has to come in and by some stroke
    of luck catches fire then it would be that much more dramatic!

    The vikings can not afford to get off to a slow start and that’s what will happen if Favre plays. He is not playing well and with an injury and his lack of mobility to get away from that pass rush, his presents would really hurt our chances. Forget the streak and sit on the bench, help Tavaris the best you can.

    Has anybody ever thought that Childress knew he was heading out the door with the dismissal of Randy Moss? This was a caculated move, Childress is too intellegent in that manner. “He took advantage his powers by not informing the Owners on the dimisal of Randy Moss deliberately. Therefore:

    4. You want Bret, here he is. He made Ziggy pay dearly.

    The Blog seems to underestimate Chilly:
    1. Childress knew Brett was not the answer, long before he got fired and before
    the season started.

    2. Ziggy had the infactuation and Chilly simply gave him his wish.

    3. When Chilly tried to pull BF out Ziggy had the last word and sided with the QB. That was the beginning to the end.

    4. The Daggar was in the New Orleans game. Brett gets nailed, and Chilly attempting to but Tavaris in for that one series and BF goes running back on the field. The body language and his look told it all. Brett throws Int! Chilly was powerless. He couldnt tell him to sit his a_ _ down!!

    So here’s Favre Ziggy, Ha! Ha!

    The Vikings need to get Randy Moss back, and I hope the Good People of Minnesota recognize and make some noise to bring Randy back home.

    Randy knew Childress was not trying to win, and told it Nationally. But everyone thought Randy was crazy. Randy spent the whole week helping prepare for NE schemes but at game time Childress deliberatly disgarded everything he said to purposely lose. This is Deep fellows.

    You need to get Randy back he’s a winner and a Viking. Sidney & Randy come on man. Childress was not going to leave Randy with you. Come on Minnesota start the drum beat. Ziggy he got you back for Favoritism. Coach over Player. Moss was the pawn. Get Him Back Minnesota!!!
