Vikings vs Packers Recap

What an ugly game... 3 points in the first half and should have been down 10 at halftime but got lucky with a low field goal. The second half looked a lot better and Tarvaris Jackson came out of the gates throwing. He looked pretty good but I'm concerned with our play calling on both offense and defense. I would like to see us run it more with the most talented player on our team. As far as Jackson is concerned i think we need to get him some bootlegs to get him out in the open giving him a run/pass option. On defense we need to bring the heat more... trust our corners and safeties and send the line-backers. With a young quarterback like Aaron Rodgers the best thing to to us rattle his cage and disrupt his timing and comfort. Jared Allen looked less than impressive and I didn't here much from E.J. Henderson. The special teams blew the game in my opinion because we should never give up a punt return for a touchdown. I think that the Vikings will still win the division and we will easily beat the Packers when they come to the dome. We will have learned from our mistakes and hopefully the coaches will be a little smarter with the play calling.

Giants vs Redskins Recap

Yes the Giant won the Super Bowl last year, yes they beat the undefeated Patriots and yes they did win the season opener against the Redskins. But I'm sick of reading the headlines that are saying things such as "Giants continue on Super Run". These need to stop as does the Eli Manning talk. Congratulations to him on winning the Super Bowl and playing great throughout the playoffs but again, last night you were playing the Redskins. The Redskins did go 9-7 last year losing in the first round of the playoffs but they will be lucky if the go 8-8 this year. The Skins just aren't a good team this year and the Super Bowl Champs should have won by more than 9 points if there hoping to repeat. I don't like this years Giants as much as some do, they should have won this game by at least 17 points, they got lucky that the skins were able to produce no offense except for one drive... Campbell only completed 2 passes in the first half. I'm not convinced that the Giants will even make the playoffs this year.
