I agree with Ponder it is only one game, but this team might have raised the bar a little bit today. I sincerely hope this team and coaching staff have turned the corner. I like coach Frazier and the make up of this team and would really like them to succeed. Time will tell but maybe the Wilf's, Speilman, and Frazier are really on to something here. Looks like a lot of young talent coming together on this team and I for one am relieved.

I hope this win proves to the Vikings that you CAN gain yardage, and win, without running the ball up the middle on 90% of all plays! Finally, they mix up the play calling a little bit... although they still run it up the middle (always directly into the defense for no gain) on ALL first downs. Total waste of a play.

Few offensive lines can both run block and pass protect well, usually excelling in one or the other. This line is getting good at pass protecting but not performing well pushing the line for runs....yet.

Once AP gets that 5% back that he is still missing the O-line will look a lot better on run downs..

We actually look like we had a game plan and executed it.

People Peterson will never return to preinjury form. I am looking forward to seeing Ponder get crushed and sent to the injury report!
