Vikes to blitz or not to blitz?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Its being reported that Vikes DC Leslie Frazier is saying that they will blitz more than they normally do. Maybe its a smokescreen. I wish they would, Reggie Bush screen time. A team that blitzes when not used to blitzing ...

Re: Vikes to blitz or not to blitz?

The Vikings know better than to blitz and leave their horrendous secondary one on one with our elite WR's. They will try (and I emphasize the word try) to send 4 at our OL and get to Bree's. When they start getting desperate because that didn't work the way it did against the Cowgirls, then they may start sending a DB, which of course Brees will pick up and hit the receiver that DB was supposed to be covering or throw a screen to Bush in that general direction.
#9 is locked in boys and girls. Nothing is going to work against him with a healthy team behind him.

This is the key to the game to me..Protect Drew and we will win...that secondary is really bad..Our recievers should have no trouble getting open.

Re: Vikes to blitz or not to blitz?

The Vikes are not going to start out blitzing. With their front four, they will try for at least several series to apply pressure with AWWE.

If they can't rattle Brees with that, then they may have to resort to sending an occasional CB or S. And Brees would eat that for lunch.

The key to this game is our OL against their DL. Should be good. I still think we are up to the challange.

The Vikings don't need to Blitz ... they get sacks every game without blitzing. One of these teams is going to get their first superbowl win. I have a feeling it's the Vikings.

The other key is how hurt is Edwards? It's been reported that he has a mild MCL sprain.
