If Kikaha wasn't 100% after ACL rehab, he needs to have a seat. Coaches, trainers, medical staff had all off season to evaluate his progress. We aren't good enough on D to have guys not playing at full strength.

Based on what I saw and read on Muhammad during camp and subsequent pre season games, he earned the right to be on the field more vs Vikes.

Deuce has been preaching this concept for nearly three years now. We still don't have that ability to "set the edge" and limit those substantial gains.

But the Vikings are much improved going into this season, which many of you were unwilling to accept.

I never ever had doubts about that Vikes defense. Up front, these guys are about as good as it gets. Coach Mike Zimmer knows defense.

Side note - AJ Klein is a very good linebacker. My fault Hagin, you called it months ago.

DC Dennis Allen has work to do. Plan A failed miserably.
Exactly, We don't have those guys, we have man-man CBs, so why are we not playing to our strengths?!?

Those Thielen pass receipts took waaaay too long, we need a better pass rush than what we saw against the Vikings on MNF...
