Like a CB that never gets challenged, even though you don't hear his name called, it doesn't mean he's not doing his job. Maybe his responsibilities in this game was to cover and take out the TE and RB. I thought he was active tonight

I missed a handful of plays tonight but the ones I've focused on Barr I haven't liked. He left a bad taste in my mouth last year. I need to see more.

Great game... Gotta say I'm surprised after watching the mess they were exhibiting in pre-season. They really put it together. Granted, the Saints defense is kind of a favorable matchup, but it was sure nice to see a vertical passing game and real variety in the playcalling. The running game was working. The OL was doing a good job. Pass protection was pretty darned good, and good things happen when a good QB has time.

This was a great evening of Vikings football... SKOL!

435 yards of total offense. Not bad.

Hopefully that line will keep giving Bradford time this season and Bradford will keep on sucking!

But we're still a mess right? And cook shouldn't have been in? And Barr and Waynes are overrated because they didn't look good in a prevent defense? New Orleans offense has been just as good or better than Pitts offense over the years and we just shut them down. And Pitts D just gave up 18 to the browns. Let that sink in

And the defense stuffed the run all night. I'd like to see Jaleel rotated in there

O-line performed well, though I thought Easton was very spotty.

Best part? No Clemmings.

No injuries, right? That has to be a record.

Waynes has little awareness/ball skills.

Mac didn't get exposed.

Run-D surprised me.

Sam, Diggs, AT = A+

That was an exceptionally satisfying evening of football. Hell yes, Vikes.
