10 Things I Learned From Watching The Vikings Lose To The Lions

Well, that was ugly. Were it not for an unfortunate bounce on Ryan Lognwell‘s field goal attempt, the would have beat the Detriot Lions yesterday. Were it not for a Chad Greenway dropped interception that could very well have been returned for a score, the Vikings would have won yesterday. Were it not for some very ill-advised passes that turned into interceptions, the Vikiings may have pulled out a victory yesterday.

  1. Tarvaris Jackson obviously has no feel for the deep pass.
  2. Tarvaris Jackson needs to learn how to throw the ball away.
  3. I’ve been saying all pre-season that the Vikings offense only needs to be a little better for the team to win a lot more games. They’re still not a little better and won’t be until Jackson can prove he can beat teams through the air.
  4. It looks like Tarvaris Jackson might not be very tough.
  5. Brooks Bollinger has confirmed that he is a third string quarterback.
  6. Kenechi Udeze has no business being on the field during passing situations.
  7. Brian Robison should take most of the snaps at left end.
  8. Kevin Williams is clearly rebounding from two consecutive mediocre years
  9. The coaches clearly don’t yet trust Adrian Peterson to pass block.
  10. Ryan Cook needs to concentrate.

Did you see Ray Edwards get destroyed at left end on the last drive to help give up the first down to Kitna?

That wasn’t good.

Yeah, but he still had a sack and has been consistently getting pressure on the quarterback. On his sack, he made an absolute fool out of the Detroit tackle.

He’s not the problem but Cedric Griffin might be. He was Smooting it most of the game and he’s obviously being targeted.
