The Vikes started passing toward the end of the game and couldn't get it done (props to the LB, DB's and S). It makes me nervous to think what could have happened if they kept using AP and started running more play action.

I think the defense will be better than last years, but stopping the run is still yet to be determined. The good news is that we don't face AP every week.
Ok Fair Comment, but think about this. Yes Peterson had a couple of runs that were roughly 7 or 8 yards, However we stuffed em in 3rd and short situations i believe about three times when they tried to run it. Plus peterson is a premier back who will do that defenses, i wanna see Junior play a bit, but i'm definitley excited!!

I do think we're a top 10 defense, but I want to see a bit more of em before I decide for sure. I did vote yes though.

And we care why? All that matters is that they do their job. Rankings are....

Don't make me say it.

A look at the Ravens and Jets defense against the run and you can see we are not in the same universe as them on defense, but of course, on offense there is no comparison. We will be between 15th and 20th at seasons end.

The offense didn't score 30, yet we won the game. The defense did its job Thursday night: 9/10 points, Farve 171, Peterson 87 with a long of 14. I'll take it every time we have to face the Vikes. That's the key, every week they have to take care of the task at hand. Running team or passing team they simply have to get it done that day or that night. If the offense gives them a 3 possession lead, then teir job gets easier.
