All of the pre-season hype made me almost puke. The Vikings brought in a few high profile players, but the same coaching staff remained.

The Vikings started out the season with a game against the Packers on Monday Night Football. They came out flat, were out coached, and were out-played.

So much for all the hype.

I can solve the Vikes problems...run the Wishbone.  You got A.P. and Chester Taylor at TB, Tapeh at FB, and a mobile QB.  Eat up the clock on O so that beast DL doesn't wear down.

I just don't buy Jackson as a starting QB, though that ridiculous group of receivers doesn't help. Seriously...Bernard Berrian? He was a contract year guy, and even THEN he dropped a ton of passes, and can't run a short route to save his life. I like Sidney Rice, but Bobby Wade's nothing special, and why they signed Visanthe Shiancoe, expecting him to be the pass catcher he never was with New York, is beyond me.

Also doesn't help that Bryant McKinnie is suspended.

I liked the pick up of Bernard Berrian as a deep threat, but he is having problems with his injured feet once again.  A deep threat that can't run isn't much of a deep threat.

Bobby Wade is nothing special and overpaid.

Shiancoe is a bust.

Heh!

The Bears looked good against the Colts.

The Colts will likely pick apart the Vikings loose zone coverage this Sunday.

On a side note, when the Vikings picked up Jared Allen, I stated that he was able to get many sacks not only because of his ability to rush but also because of the way Kansas City overloaded the side and stunted.  If the Vikings would play him in a vanilla zone defense, he would not do as well.  The Vikings used Allen in a mostly vanilla zone last Monday night, and he was shut down.

Well I'll tell you this - I'm a Detroiter so I can tell you that I think Adrian Peterson gets about 500 yards rushing agianst Detroit this year.

The Detroit Lions are the reason for the invention of fantasy football - at least I still have SOMEONE to root for since they're such a piece of )*&#@H every single year.

1 playoff win in 50 years - that's a sin

The Lions are a total joke and disaster, if you're from here you almost want the whole franchise to move to Los Angeles and we'll just take an expansion team someday because this is just totally a joke.  Matt Millen and the team of clowns he has working with him are the worst talent evaluators in the history of the NFL.  My MBFL strategy is partially dedicated towards getting rid of real life Detroit Lions players.

One of my friends pointed out a poll on one of the sports news sites last week that asked the question - Will Tarvaris Jackson throw more TDs than Jared Allen will get sacks?  I went with Allen, and still think he will win that derby.

Yeah, that is...I mean, that team is just bad. Good receivers (and after all those damn picks, they had BETTER have good ones), I like Kevin Smith at running back...the line's okay. That defense, though, aside from Sims, is just awful. This of course brings up the eternal question...how does Matt Millen still have a job???

Lacking that final punch
Vikings should really have killed off the Colts early on
but they let 'em hang around and Payton made 'em pay

Vikes'll be alright they should be about 8-8 or 9-7 in this division.  The Lions are going to make a strong run at the perfect 0-16 season.

I hope they make it, maybe that will be the impetus towards change that is needed in the organization.

Well my Jags aint started much better MB

although our O=line has taken some major hits with injuries
and left us having to sign free agents to fill the roster out

Vinny Manawai - out for the season with ACL

Mo Williams out with a torn bicep

and the big shocker Richard Collier having been shot and in critical condition
although he said to be stable, he's still not out of the woods yet.
big blow to team moral just before the season satarted

Aaaah, a fellow Jags fans. Yeah, we're done. Absolutely done. I don't think any team can have so many offensive linemen go down and really hope to play well, especially when that team is as run dependent as Jacksonville is. Also, I dunno, I get the impression a few of the guys maybe bought in to all the preseason hype, because they don't seem to be playing with the same level of urgency that they've displayed the past couple of years.

Minnesota will be fine...once they get a legit quarterback.

Perhaps if they get a real offensive coordinator and a special teams coach.

Hmmm, maybe they should get a different head coach while they are at it.

Things are bad for the Chargers, Vikes and Jags right now, but the schedule will get easier soon and they'll have a chance to right the ship as the season progresses.

The Chiefs, though...man, losing to the Raiders is tough.  I'm going to go ahead and speculate that by this time next year, Herm Edwards will be on Indy's defensive staff.  The problems with the Chiefs are deeper than coaching, of course.  At least they owned the draft this past year - lots of talent coming up for them.

Doesn't matter - Jacksonville will be alright next season - the Lions will be awful again. Over any 10 year period the Jags will win 2-3 playoff games.

The Lions have won one in 50 years - it's unbelievable.

I hope so. I'm from Indy and I'm a Chiefs fan, and as such, I really can't stand the Colts.

Vikes bench Jackson for remainder of season, start Frerotte:

http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d5d80ae3198&template=with-video&confirm=true

Darn it, I really wanted to see if Jared Allen got more sacks than Jackson got TD passes...anyway, even if the offense improves, the chances of Frerotte making it thru the remaining 14 games without injury should be pretty slim.  Let's see what happens this weekend when the Vikes play the 2-0 Panthers.
