Something we haven't seen in a while

The spread offense isn't something we're used to with Chilly and Bevel at the helm.  But get this: the Vikes' offense might be so loaded with talent at wide receiver, that we could field a squad with both Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor on the bench.  Shank can sit this one out, too.

With Berrian and Rice split wide, Wade and Johnson in the slot and Harvin in the backfield, an opposing defense is going to have problems.  A dime defense (6 defensive backs) to cover those 4 (or 5?) wide-outs leaves only 5 defenders in the box.  Try stopping Percy Harvin with 5 in the box. Or motion Harvin out of the backfield and dare a linebacker to cover him.  Bring it, Lance Briggs.  The four guys on the outside will test the deepest of secondaries, too.  An explosive passing offense from the Minnesota Vikings?  What decade is this?

Now, if only a fleet-footed quarterback could step up to the plate and add another rushing threat to the mix.  Tarvaris Jackson, you've got the preseason to show that you're worth keeping on the roster this year--not to mention another chance at the keys to the KAO in 2010, after your rookie contract comes to a close.  We've seen Farve run a spread very effectively, and we'll probably see him do it this year, too.  This time, old man Farve might be in a purple throwback jersey when the green and gold come to town.
