A Closer Look: What Is “Vikings” Football?

Posted by Mike Wobschall on December 19, 2012 – 1:15 pm

It may be wise to take with a grain of salt what NFL head coaches say during press conferences at this late stage of the season. And you can hardly blame a NFL coach for falling into patterns of hyperbole and coach speak given how frequently they’re required to meet with reporters and speak about their team.

With that being said, it’s not uncommon for a head coach to carry to press conferences the same theme(s) he promotes to his team. As an example, we’ve heard Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier emphasize repeatedly that he wants his team to play “smart, tough, disciplined” football. Whether speaking to his team in a meeting room or after the game in the locker room, or speaking with reporters at a press conference, Frazier calls this brand of play “Vikings football.”

Here’s a closer look at what defines Frazier’s brand of “Vikings Football”…

Smart
The Vikings game plans against St. Louis were clever. Bill Musgrave and the offensive staff mixed in play-action bootlegs early in the game to find holes in a Rams defense that was selling out to stop the run. St. Louis had some success neutralizing the run early – Adrian Peterson had just 8 yards on his first 8 carries – but eventually they had to account for the crossing routes and rollouts. Once they did that, the running game took over.

Defensively, Alan Williams and the Vikings defensive staff mixed blitzes, pressures and even zone blitzes into the game plan. Everson Griffen came away with a pick-6, Marcus Sherels and Antoine Winfield pressured the QB, and Chad Greenway and Erin Henderson registered sacks. When all was said and done, the Vikings had 5 pass breakups, 4.0 sacks and a fumble recovery. Greenway led the team in tackles (again) and role players such as Christian Ballard (1.0 sack), Griffen and Sherels all made an impact

Tough
The essence of blocking and, consequently, of running the football is moving the opponent in a direction against their will. The Vikings offensive line has been able to do that with regularity this season. It’s no secret the Vikings come into each game prioritizing the run game, and it’s also no secret that opponents come into each game with the top priority being stopping the run. The Vikings have seen defenses put as many as 9 players in the box, and yet Peterson and the Vikings offense still find a way to run the ball with effectiveness.

And how about the Vikings special teams? The combination of kick and coverage on kickoffs has been sensational for the Vikings this season. Blair Walsh has set a single-season record for touchbacks, but many times he’s asked to put hang time under his kicks so the coverage team can run down and, well, cover. The Vikings rank 6th in opponent’s average starting field position after a kickoff and they also rank 7th in opponent’s average punt returns.

Disciplined
It’s not often discussed or written about, but one of the Vikings most significant areas of improvement this season has been in the penalty department. Last season, the Vikings ranked 23rd in penalties accepted against (109). This year, the Vikings rank 4th with just 75 accepted penalties against them. The Vikings and Atlanta Falcons are the only two teams who’ve avoided double-digits in holding + offsides/false start penalties. Frazier credited two sources for this drastic improvement – his players and ownership.

“For us to be in the top five this season, credit to our players,” Frazier said. “We really emphasized in the offseason, but that’s not unlike any other year that we’ve emphasized it. Once again, our ownership really buying into some things that I talked with them about this offseason. I was talking with some other coaches around the League, trying to get some ideas. One of the coaches I talked with mentioned that they had tried to use officials in practice. And he saw a dramatic decrease in their penalties. I talked to our ownership about it because those guys (officials) aren’t going to volunteer their time, and they (ownership) were willing to support it. I think having those officials there has helped us, along with our players being more conscious. But they’re probably more conscious because those officials are there and they will call penalties in practice.”

    PurplHaze I think your forcing yourself to believe something that you really don’t believe in.

    It’s like knowing it’s going to snow in Minnesota but you decide to wear shorts because you want to believe it won’t.

    You and I both know the NFL today I’d not what it used to be. Back then it was a running backs league but now it’s a quarterbacks league with a few good running backs.

    The rules changed giving the quarterback a greater chance to succeed why do you think these rookies are coming in looking like vets now days.

    You try to compare Ponder to great quarterbacks and I refuse to. When Manning came out he was considered by many as being the next big thing along with you know who.

    Ponder is you know who he will never come close to Manning, Ponder is playing with the greatest running back in the game right now who might end up being the greatest to play this game.

    Ponder doesn’t have to do what these other quarterbacks had to do, those guys were asked to carry a team Ponder doesn’t have to do that.

    When a rookie quarterback gets drafted defensive coordinators test them giving them different looks.

    Ponder gets the same looks over and over again and still don’t have a clue what to do, teams don’t game plan to stop Ponder they writer about AP.

    I believe in what I see not what peoples want me to believe.
    I’m not going to let Frazier and Spielman make me believe in Ponder, I watch football and Ponder was the last quarterback I expected to go in the first round.
    Just like Frazier raved about Burton catching everything in training camp which was a lie and fans who believed that are now witnessing the truth.
    They said they held an open competition which was a lie also.
    Anyone who been to or went to the Vikings training camp knows that Ponder was the only quarterback getting reps with the first team do how is that an open competition.
    Frazier said Ponder was going to be the starting quarterback going into the offseason so why would they be competing if the starters were selected already.

    The point of the video is that the “multiple shooter’ scenario is usually the tell tale sign of a false flag. You’ll notice most of the news stories about multiple shooters are now wiped away, but many archived them and took screen shots right away as the news broke. (Though the guy was really annoying throughout the video)

    The fact that a kid with aspbergers had that many killshots with very few injured, the fact that the school had security cameras, the brothers ID planted on him, in full armor, etc… There is a lot of stuff that really doesn’t add up.

    Parkway, I am not saying I disagree with you– or the premise of the video– I clearly understand what he is trying to say– but it is not well done. As I stated– it is a series of clips — the second shooter running through the woods as the 20 yr old is dead in the school– well, as I watch that, I have to question several points– when was the woods scene filmed? How do I know, as a viewer, that this film was shot the same day? How do I know the 20 yr old is already in the school dead?

    I can try to find you the screenshots of the initial articles that came out, not sure if you read any of them, but the initial story was that a 2nd shooter was handcuffed in the woods, so that video would corroborate that story, but yes I agree nothing can be 100% believed or proved in the video but it does follow what was initially reported. I’ll try to find it.

    When Hitler was with the NAZI party his member number was 55; however because there were so few members and they wanted to look like a larger organization with more clout, they upped the numbers– Hitler’s membership number was 555. A precursor to the final dictator– only this time will be far worse — due to two significant differences since NAZI Germany. First, the level of control and surveillance through technology– but the key will be the whole globe will be under this new system’s authority– in other words, unlike Germany, there will be no outside powers to intervene and free the citizens.

It’s embarassing…Instead, let’s agree to concentrate on addressing the reasons why our passing game is looking more and more like the Jets or Jags and what this organization plans to do about it (besides “keep working”).

    At this time, I refuse to believe we cannot win this game! The team IS coming together; albeit Ponder is still lagging in this equation. We have picked up with O-line,Defense,Secondary. This team is playing as ONE UNIT, for a common goal and that is what I havent seen in a long time. They KNOW what they have to do, and I think these last (2) games have proved that. Now, they need to go out and execute to the fullest. We have managed to achieve more than what anyone had imagined compared to last yr. This team has gotten stronger, more insync over the last (2) games. We all know that this team is hungry right now. AND we also know that this team is behind AP 110%. Let’s just get behind our team and show them that we believe in them (most of them anyway). Right now they are focusing on Houston and how to stop their Offense/Defense, and open up holes and block for AP. This IS what they need to do this week. So, I say, GO VIKES, and GO AP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
