Vikings starters dominated. I know it is only preseason but the defense had me pretty excited. They only had six plays with three of them resulting in sacks. It reminded me of old school Tecmo football where you pick the offense's play and jump all over it. Can't wait to see them in a full game.
Starters were very efficient on offense. I'd like to see them convert on 3rd instead of needing 4th down. I did like how they mixed up the play calling as far as passing in some normal Vikings rushing downs. Let's face it, Rosenfels is the Vikings starting QB. He looked confident and in control of the game offensively. Nothing fancy. He just threw solid catchable balls and let the recievers do their thing. Jackson on the other hand looked like Jackson at his worse. Sure it was second team but superman couldn't have caught some of the passes he threw. Poor guy.
Berrian injury troubles me because those hammy's can linger. Harvin not playing was a disappointment as that was my biggest reason to tune in. Loadholt did not look good to me at all. Yikes that might be a serious problem this year. He was beat easily by the second team end on two or three plays.
I really think this team could be something special this season. I thought they had a good shot beginning of last season and they pulled it off after a poor start. But this season I feel like they should have the division easily and could be trying for bigger things.
