Winfield- he makes the whole secondary gel. This guy is the big key in the Vikes Superbowl hopes.

Can't win without a defense...

Interesting that the secondary improves during his absence.
The Vikings went on a win streak during that time he missed due to the hammy as well.

My hope is that the d-backfield improves upon his return, not just the run defense either.
Losing a pro bowler usually hurts a team, so these stats are odd.

I would attribute that to the quality of opponents. Winfield is a really talented D.B., one I would hate to see absent during the playoffs-when the real opponents show up to play.

Playin the cover 2 the way we do we don't get many int's. Sharper put it best when he said he felt handcuffed last year due to the strict area's that are played by our d-backs, he felt his ball hawking skills were going to waste. Face it Winny is a decent cover guy not a great one so corner by committee worked in his abscence, his real strength is his tackling ability during the run stop; his instincts are great as well and he is a big play player.

Broken bones (in the foot) take time. Sitting another game wouldn't hurt, and I want to see more of Asher Allen: This guy looks like a player. I don't disagree with anyone's praise of Winfield, but he still is not a great cover corner and has problems with big, physical receivers (obviously great hitter and tackler, but hold on a minute when talking coverage skills. Not a shut down guy, sorry).

Don't rush Winfield back. Should beat Seattle and Chicago regardless. Wait until Arizona. Letting the other guys play will make the Vikings deeper at the position. Skol to Miami and Super win!
