Jared Allen is a STUD. I can't imagine where our pass defense would be without him (and Kevin Williams)

The defensive line is on the par with the purple people eaters of yesterday. I hope they can maintain the intensity during the regular season and hopefully the playoffs!

Just so you get it right, Doleman nver did anything after Keith Millard blew up his knee. every opponet was so concern about Millard coming up the middle that Doleman had success from the outside.

According to most cheese turds, Jared Allen must have been on steroids back with the KC Chiefs too.

Allen is the Vikings "Reggie White". Vikings will win the SB this year. They have everything needed.

That's because most cheeseturds have been in a state of denial for quite awhile now. Turd Thompson has the team over there reduced to a decent QB, an excellent TE, a decent LB, a fairly good WR, and an over-rated (but good) RB. The rest of the team sucks as-s. Why does everyone over there think that McMuffin is a good coach? Childress has a better record then anyone in the division, but catches all of the $h!t for being lousy. If he's that bad, what does it say for the rest of the coaches in this division?

His performance speaks for itself, game after game. His "work" against GB was a combo of both his skills AND GB's $h!tty "O" line. But it's nice to hear a GB fan at least admit it for once. All of this crap about how he must be using 'roids, etc. is bull$h!t. A person doesn't have to be a Viking fan to see that MN has the best over-all team in the division.- And one of the best in the NFL. Rodgers is a damn skillful QB. But he's not going to last long getting tossed around like that. The dude spends more time on his back than Madonna. Without a good "O" line, it's like he's wasted against teams with the sort of defense MN wields. IMO.

Who got busted for steroid use, just out of curiousity? Your post sounds like the sports version of penis envy.

I credit macarthy's play calling ability,he is clearly a better coach than chilly.And im not just hating,he put aaron in a position to make plays.You don't always see that from chilly.He even makes ryan grant better than what he is.

What I like about this team is that they play like a team and not a bunch of individuals. In an interview before the game, Jared Allen showed off his humble ways by showing his everyday average vehicle (not anything special) and he seemed like a normal dude!. Brett Farve seems to be the same way.

I think that is why I like the Vikes this year!

Stay in the projects fool. Comments like that display your true color! What, did the liquor store get WiFi for your stolen laptop?

anyway.... All successful DEs got where they are becuse of good interior linemen. Show me one DE who had success while the run stuffers struggled?.?.. It doesn't happen. Now you are able to have good interior guys and not have good DEs.. but thats just a lack of talent on the end. Did someone mention Underwood? What a nut sack he was.. Thats who the fool from PA is!!!! WiFi at the institute, huh Dimetrius?

I, too, like what I've seen from the team this year. Yes, we had slow starts in the first 2 games. And yes, they were teams we were supposed to beat in the first 3. And yes, we gave up 384 yards in Game 4.

But we're playing with intensity on both sides of the ball. Our special teams don't stink as bad as they usually do. And the offense is able to stretch the field. It won't be long before opposing defenses start to respect the pass and then Peterson will have room to run. Then they'll be REALLY fun to watch.

Oh yeah, almost forgot this tidbit... we're among the least penalized teams in the league this year. We aren't killing ourselves with penalties, which shows we're actually concentrating on execution. Cool!

Now that we finally have a winner (by the looks of things thus far), if we can't get these guys a new stadium we never will.
