Vikings CBs A Hot Topic This Week

Posted by Mike Wobschall on December 13, 2012 – 7:36 am

Not making an appearance in Wednesday’s “8 Vikings-Rams Storylines To Follow” blog entry was the topic of Vikings CBs, but they were a hot topic during Leslie Frazier’s meeting with local reporters. The first five questions of Frazier’s Wednesday press conference focused on various issues surround Vikings CBs, so let’s go over a few things we learned…

A.J. Jefferson could play on Sunday
Since Chris Cook went down with a broken arm during the Vikings Week 8 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, A.J. Jefferson has stepped into an increased role on defense. Near the end of last week’s win over Chicago, though, Jefferson also was injured. He suffered a concussion and was forced out of the game and into the NFL’s return-from-concussion protocol.

On Wednesday, Frazier said Jefferson was “getting closer” to passing all of his tests. The Vikings expect to have a much better idea of Jefferson’s chances to play this Sunday in St. Louis after Thursday’s work.

Next man up
In the event that Jefferson is not able to return in time for Sunday’s game, a few players would be asked to step up. Rookie Josh Robinson would be first on the list, although he’s seen plenty of the field this season while playing in the Vikings nickel package. On Monday, Frazier also mentioned Brandon Burton and Marcus Sherels as guys who may see increased roles on defense should Jefferson sit out.

Sherels to resume kickoff return duties
With Percy Harvin unavailable because of his ankle injury, the Vikings kickoff return role is open for business. Sherels was the first to fill the void and he’s done so adequately. More recently, though, Jefferson took a turn returning kicks. With his availability now in question because of the concussion, Frazier indicated earlier in the week that Sherels will reassume the kickoff return roles. Even if Jefferson does play on Sunday, expect Sherels to take the reps so the Vikings can reduce Jefferson’s exposure to another concussion.

Chris Cook on track
Chris Cook has returned to practice for the Vikings and appears to be on track to return to game action as soon as next week against the Houston Texans. Frazier has been asked about the chances of Cook returning this season and hasn’t been specific about if or when it could happen, but the fact that Cook has returned to practice is a sign of good progress.

The Vikings have done a nice job of covering up his absence with Jefferson and Robinson, but having Cook return to action would be a big plus for the Vikings in terms of their ability to cover bigger receivers and in terms of their depth both on defense and on special teams.

Winfield held out of Wednesday practice
Veteran Antoine Winfield did not practice on Wednesday, but that is not worthy of alarm. The Vikings have been diligent about monitoring Winfield’s reps, and it is paying big dividends this season. Winfield, in his 14th season, is having another stellar campaign and his health is a big reason for the Vikings increased performance against the pass. Frazier did mention that Winfield’s knee was bothering him a bit, and that added to the team’s decision to hold him out on Wednesday. It’s expected that Winfield will return to practice on Thursday.

    Prediction…

    Vikings 16…Rams 10….

    “Air Blair” comes up big for the Vikes in this one !!!…;-)

    What the Vikings need to beat the Rams ???….

    defense…Defense !…and more DEFENSE !!!…

    And run the ball with AP !!!…

  3. By OTKalil2012 on Dec 13, 2012 | Reply

    It might be to late to try too many new things on offense..

    But AP reminds me of John Riggins of the Redskins…Another very powerful RB in his day…

    Riggins was doing a lot of running behind 3 TE sets they were some massive guys…That “imposed their will” on many defenses..Much like AP is doing now…

    Why not bring in an extra tackle…And have him play the TE position…Like Reif is doing some for the Lions of late ???…

    I mean its not like the other side doesn’t know we are going to run the ball anyway ???…So why not use some bigger men the TE position at times…To open some more holes up for AP ??

  4. By vikes- or - die on Dec 13, 2012 | Reply

    Ya its not a bad idea to run a smash mouth running attack. Like you say, every one knows we will be running. I am hoping our receivers are getting a lot of run blocking reps. Peterson does not need much and he is off to the races. Play action pass should start taking off. Our “O” line is doing a good job pass blocking, so let’s pound away.

  5. By realviking on Dec 13, 2012 | Reply

    Why don’t we use Rudolph in the deep middle like the Patriots, Saints, 49ers, and chargers use their tightends.
    He’s tall and can catch the ball over defenders. When the Rams put the safeties in the box send Rudolph deep he’ll have 1 on 1 with either a linebacker or safety.

  6. By vikes- or - die on Dec 13, 2012 | Reply

    Sorry, Our “O” line is doing a good job RUN BLOCKING, I meant to say.

  7. By realviking on Dec 13, 2012 | Reply

    I think we have the best run blocking line in the league they open holes and I always see Kalil running with AP.
    Our receivers do a pretty good job blocking to they’re always around to block that last defender for AP.

  8. By vikes- or - die on Dec 13, 2012 | Reply

    Deep middle is a good idea if we can give Ponder enough time for the route to develope. To many times we have melt downs in our pass protection. I don’t think Ponder can be holding the ball to long this week because the Rams have a great pass rush. But its a great idea and I would love to see it happen.

  9. By VikingFanatic209 on Dec 13, 2012 | Reply

    ya that is 1 thing our receivers deserve credit 4….I always see Jenkins setting a good block and I agree with the xtra tackle idea I have thought of that a few times over the course of the season it would b nice to see that oversized package on the field especially in 3rd and short situations………Skol Vikes!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. By realviking on Dec 13, 2012 | Reply

    Ponder should come out in shotgun fake hand off to AP so the defense can bite then throw one of his special floaters to Rudolph.
    Or play action fake to AP, Rudolph act like he’s about to block then take off and Ponder throw his special floater it doesn’t take a lot of time I’ve seen other offenses such as 49ers run that against aggressive defenses.

    Frazier just made a statemement Ponder will be playing on the Vikings 10 years from now.
    “Having to drop back and throw it 30 times doesn’t necessarily have to be a part of your development,” Frazier said. “There are a lot of things that go into developing at that quarterback position, and it just so happens he’s in a situation where he’s playing with the best in the business at a position. One day, Adrian is going to retire, 10 years from now, and maybe Christian won’t have that same luxury and more will be on his shoulders. But for the time being, it’s going to revolve around 28.”

    As we all know we play much better at home, but at least we will be playing on turf against the Ram’s and the Texan’s. We will need all the extra speed we can generate because the crowd noise will set us back some.

    Ponder will not only be the starter for this season…But it will be his job to lose next season…Unless the Vikings are foolish and bring in a veteran QB again this spring…Like they did with McNabb…That would be stupid…

    Draft a QB before doing that…

    Open a QB competition in training camp next year…With young QB prospect…

    Along with MBT…Or maybe still Webb…At least into training camp…

    Teams don’t trade or drop starting QB material…They sign them to extensions…

    I will be happy with whatever the Vikings final record will be this year, what an improvement over last year. Here is to hoping for a 10-6 year though I would settle for an 8-8 if that meant beating the Packers in the last game of the year knocking them out of the playoffs.

  36. By Ponder AKA 3 and out on Dec 13, 2012 | Reply

    one loss and he will be gone next year. he will start all 3 for sure this year

    9 in the box? Whats new? They will need 9 and the kitchen sink. Ground and Pound, even if we are getting stuffed. the play action pass will open up if we stick with the run. We just have to hope the receivers can step up and make a PLAY. I believe they can.

    a win over the packers won’t knock them out of the playoffs, they would still get a wildcard. he want the bears to lose for a better shot at wildcard

    Here is a little “tid bit” of info I saw last week also…

    I haven’t seen even Fred mention about in last Sundays game…Who I thought might say something about that ???…

    Loadholt was getting me pretty upset with his “false start” penalties….Until I saw, what it looked to me…Ponder yelling hut…And Loadholt seemed to just be the first man off the ball before the rest of the O-line…Just by that “split second”…

    I think that is why he kept having such a confused look on his face coming back to the huddle ???…

    I didn’t tape the game…But sure would like to check those penalties against Loadholt on his false starts…I think he had the snap counts right…

    Maybe not though ???…

    This game is meaningful for both teams. We both would have to win the remaining three games to have a shot.
    Whoever wants it more will win so Vikings better be ready.

    Ponder will need at least 150 yards passing to win the game. not so much to ask, but for him it’s alot to ask

    Dear Santa Clause…

    I don’t ask you for much but I currently have a request that I think you should fill. Would you be able to muster up some magic and let ALL DAY the beast beat the single season rushing record held by Eric D-ickerson??? We would all much appreciate that. No one more than the Vikings fans wants AP to prove to EVERYONE that he is the best RB that has ever hit the field. This record will leave no questions to be asked. Then he should be able to recieve MVP!!!!!

    SO Santa Clause, this is all I (as a die hard fan) is asking for.

    Thank you!

    even if the packers lost to the Bears and us, the packers still hold the tiebreaker over us. the Packers would have to lose to Tennessee on top of it and that’s not going to happen

    If we lose this game I think Frazier should start playing some of the young guys so we can have a feel for what we need in the offseason. Who knows we might havesomeone special on the bench.

    If AP can’t carry us and Ponder doesn’t step up I believe he will be holding the clip board because these coaches can’t be that dumb to not realize how important this game is. Ponder put us in this situation by giving the Packers our must win game he better not do the same thing again

    But, since we’re “all about 28″ why not pull all the WRs off the field, replace them with blocking FBs and TEs. Motion Rudy, pull Kalil and Johnson, and AP soars into the endzone behind the FLYING V!!!!!!

Ponder’s mind is on his girl, not football, just watch, 75 total yards passing, 2 interceptions, Frazier will say something like, the Rams really came to play and you could see it in the defense Ponder had to face………..Conspiracy!!!

    @Mike B,

    Ponder will probably start all three ball games, but I hope that the Vikings coaches have the COMMON SENSE to put in Joe Webb if the game seems to be leaving us behind.

    Perhaps they think they can develop Joe Webb by not allowing him to go on the field. Kirk Warner was developed that way, once he hit the NFL he didn’t play much. Bart Starr missed a lot of playing time his first four years.

    But how many times have you seen people sit on the bench when they should have been starting. They make that mistake on all levels pee wee, high school, college, and the pros. Experts CAN be wrong.

    the pick is in-
    Adrian Peterson racks up two more touchdowns for everyone’s fantasy team, including mine (“Pizza the Hut”). That’s cool for fantasy, not for reality, as the St. Louis Rams’ front four should give Christian Ponder fits. The second-year quarterback desperately needs his big tight end, Kyle Rudolph, to show up for this game, or else the Rams’ pass rush is going to bury him. Rudolph had a goose egg last week. For Sam Bradford and the Rams’ offense, protecting the football is key — something St. Louis has done well, with only 17 turnovers on the season. #MINvsSTL St Louis -24 Vikings-17

    No matter what happens in next three games, lets not kid ourselves, Ponder will be the starting QB. Although they say he needs to keep working on his foot work and pocket presence and accuracy, they still stand behind him based on other sucessfull QBs that went thru the same growing pains. We keep throwing out there that Webb should start but he had his chance with Chilly and Frazier and both of them didn’t make that move. I agree if Ponder struggles in these 3 games I would have to pull him because these games are important. I think if we had better receivers and Ponder was struggling then that move would be made. The organization stands behind their pick at QB and will have to take a lot more to admit that they made a bad decision on this guy.

    It would be nice to hear from the wide receivers’ coach on how their unit can contribute in the remaining 3 games. When is their “defining moment;” does it coincide with Christian’s “defining moment”? I like to see this unit put in a pleasant surprise this December; perhaps, some razzle dazzle plays? How about Webb as a receiver? He might eke out a touchdown, he runs pretty good after the catch.

    The Minnesota Vikings were over the moon about getting Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker via trade in 1989. The rest of the NFL wasn’t, not because of what he did for the Vikings, but what the trade built for the Dallas Cowboys. Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson ultimately received six Vikings draft picks. Two of those were used on the NFL’s all-time leading rusher in Emmitt Smith, and a multi-time All-Pro in Darren Woodson. The other picks were used in trades, one of which resulted in the acquisition of Russell Maryland. The Dallas dynasty was born.

    Excellent idea using the “stretch play”…The Vikings haven’t used that play this season….Get that O-line and AP shifting left…And then have Ponder roll out right…

    A problem I have noticed all season long….Coaching has not had Ponder work on “selling” the play action more ???…Ponder needs to play fake better…Those quick jabs at a play fake is not fooling the DE’s and LB’s on defense much…Ponder does few pump fakes…Shoulder fakes…etc…

    Ponder needs a guy like Favre to help him out…Ponder needs to learn how to “deceive” the defense better…If you want to see a young QB “sell the play action pass”….Watch RG3…He does an outstanding job at it…

  163. By OTKalil2012 on Dec 13, 2012 | Reply

    All Ihave to say is that I have been reading all of these blogs here all week and people are at least sounding a little more up-beat. I think our chances are good to make the playoffs. I would love toe see Chicago beat the packers, and then lose the rest of the games and the same for Green Bay- I just want them to lose all of the last 3. That would be the coolest choke ever and be amazing for us fans. All we can do now is stock up on cold beverages, scream loud and let destiny fall where it may. All of the Ponder skeptics (Which have included me) are going to find out if he has the skill to pull off some wins the last 3 games. If he does, I think we all have to suck it up and give him props for hanging in there with such tough criticism and pressure to succeed. I truly hope the kid comes through. It would be a great success story for the Vikes. Heaven knows we need one right now. Peterson is a huge story for us this year. I am so glad the man is not of this world. I hope he can hit his goal of becoming the all-time rushing leader. That would solidify his MVP…

    I agree Troutdaddy. At least after the past two years we can watch games knowing we have a chance to win. Ponder may prove to be very good in the future– way too early to throw him out.

    Your post on the Billchick without Brady etc. was MARVELOUS!!!

    A COACH IS AS GOOD AS HIS TALENT.

    NO TALENT, THE COACH IS LOUSY!!! WHY DO YOU THINK GRUDEN, GREEN, AND BILLICK ARE RETIRED.

    DUH, DUH, DUH, THEY ARE TOO OLD? (jones is not talking to anyone in particular)

    OTKalil,

    The joneboy don’t know nuttin’ ’bout dat’ false start by the LOADholt.

    Did you catch the interview of Kalil on KFan? It sounds liket he OTs will have quite an attack against them in this St. Louis game. 34 of their 39 sacks come from the DEs!

    A few segments back Barrerio said that Gerhart couldn’t run. That’s the kind of hurtful stuff that we don’t need from our radio guys. Besides he had 531 yards at 4.9 yards per carry last year.

    Bill Musgrave said that they are getting a lot of production out of the RG position from Fusco and Schwartz. Fusco starts, but Schwartz comes in when it looks like Fusco needs a rest, or they can teach him something.

    But Kalil has also helped spring Peterson frequently.

    It seems to Jones that the P@ss is when you must have all 5 guys doing their jobs, w h e r e a s you could get away with only 3 or 4 of the linemen doing their job on a running play.

    (Yes, TEs and FBs have also played an instrumental part in our running game.)

    @GrandDaddyPurp,

    St. Louis isn’t that far from MN. There will be some transplanted Vikings fans there!

    Perhaps Ponder will have a breakout game this week.

    And Happy pre Birthday Shawn. Enjoy your 30′s while you can. It seems for me that everything started the downhill spiral at 40.

    The only breakout Ponder will have is the bed rash…Steele Rash.

    Rams will throw the ball all day, try to get a lead early and then hope to contain AP. Rams play alot like the Lions – in fact Bradford and Stafford have almost identical stats. So our pass rush and corners need to be ready. Ponder won’t light it up (he never does), but I have a feeling he’ll be able to take some shots down the middle of the field against the Rams and should be able to get a good amount of yds moving outside the pocket.

    I’m sticking with my prediction: Vikes 24 Rams 16

    Peterson: 26 atts/136 yds, TD

    Ponder: 15/28, 215 yds, 2 TD, INT

    GO VIKES
