Vikings win big, 27 - 10, and dominate the TOP battle. Cousins only attempts 19 passes.

I don't think they will win another game this season.. Hope I'm wrong, but I see little to no heart in most of the players on the field. They don't believe they can win

Vikes win 75-2

With the only/main problems being taken care of with the firing of Deflip, the SB is the limit this year. Error free football woohoo. The Oline will learn to pass protect and block for Cook and Murray to get 150 yards each, just on the ground. Zimmer will call a timeout or 2 if needed if the clock runs down to zero. The refs will now only cal penalties on teams that dont have horns on their room. Cant wait. :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana:

This is preposterous. The Vikings will not give up a safety.

If OL can block we win.
That's basically as good as saying we'll lose, isn't it? lol
Dam you're right I guess I was still bitter about the OL. I guess if Cousins can get the ball to the playmakers hands alot quicker.

Since Miami is a Winning team, they will win. Cousins cant win those games and Zimmer cant coach them.
Then I guess it’s time to not like the Vikings anymore

I say you see a huge change in the balance of this offense today. Cook goes for over 100. Cousins picks them apart. Defense plays solid. 31-10 Vikes.

I think you'll see an effort to run the ball early and a return to the pass when that continues to not work.

Again, it’s not that it wasn’t working. It wasn’t being used. Cook is averaging 4.8 yards in the last two games on the road. How is that not working? Flip didn’t wanna do it. That was the problem. Zim wants to pound it and stefanski knows that. So I’m guess that’s what stefanski is going to do . This OL can run block good enough to get these backs going. They just haven’t committed to it all year

I agree with pretty much everyone. On paper were probably better but were not playing the way we should. I think Miami covers the -7 but i think we win 24-23 only because were at home.

David Morgan is back today. That will go a long ways helping us getting a win today.

This oline isnt good enough to get enough out of the running game running 25 plus times a game imo. All is takes is one negative run and its almost an instant 3 and out, even when there is no gain on a first down run also results in us going 3 and out 90% of the time. Gut feeling tells me cooks put the ball on the ground at a bad time in the game

We're gonna run the ball effectively, protect the QB and whip the Dolphins on both sides of the line of scrimmage. :govikes:
