Secondary, linebackers, defensive tackles, wide receivers, offensive guard, and the entire coaching staff and the defensive scheme is a concern. I'm more concerned about our defense that I am our offense this year. Pass-happy football needs to put together a 3-4 defense.

There is a reason, why I drafted Rodgers in my fantasy league. Look at the defenses he faces, twice a year.

@Vikeupnorth: The Giants have won 2 superbowls in the last 5 years with a 4-3.

Great to hear that Jerome Simpson can attend meetings and work out at Winter Park while suspended. 3 weeks of "idle time" away from the team would have been a recipe for disaster.

Still a lot better off than last year, would like an update on Cook's concussion would have been nice.

Unless the Vikes can add that guy who can change water into wine the Vikes have no chance.

If your expecting great things this year you're only going to get aggravated. This is a year for seeing what we have for the future. It's called "rebuilding". If you look at it that way, you might actually enjoy the year. Please don't start screaming about how bad we are after 2 weeks. NO EXPECTATIONS! Personally I feel that we'll have some pleasant surprises and go into next year with playoff hopes. And cut Ponder some slack. He gets the whole year to mature. I think he will.

Odd how the head coach played defensive back and yet that is the weakest part of his team. Very odd indeed.

This is hard to believe , there must be a couple of wife abusers out there who would like to join the Vikings secondary.

Uh has anyone noticed the Vikes have given up far less points than the other north division teams?
