Lions-Vikings Game Day

Post by RandyMoss84 » Sun Nov 08, 2020 12:11 pm

I think Vikings will win but anytime Vikings lose to the Lions no matter how good or bad the Lions are, it is always embarrassing because Lions are a terrible franchise

I would like to go on the record to say that the Lions are going to kill us and we have no chance of winning this game.
Why? Because I told a few people that last week and look what happened. So I will say it again.
Hopefully we will sack and harass Stafford the way we have the past few times we played them. In those games he wore Vikes defenders like a velvet robe!!

Great win. I'm thinking this Dalvin Cook guy is pretty solid.

The Trevor sweepstakes are done, so now it's time to go for broke. Just win, baby.

Also, just like to note that as legit as Justin Jefferson is, it looks like he's also having a ton of fun on this team right now, which I take as a good sign that this team has legitimately turned a corner and is now the roster is gaining some swagger and confidence.

Everybody said, "Well, he might be good, but he won't replace Stefon Diggs' production."

Tell you what. He's not far off. Diggs is having by far the best season of his career ... in Year 6. Jefferson is less than 100 receiving yards behind Diggs, 1 TD behind him, and averages almost 7 more yards per catch. Also, Jefferson is on pace for 1,254 yards receiving as a rookie — and he barely played the first two weeks. It took Stefon Diggs 5 years to go over 1,000 for a season.

I think we're just fine with Justin Jefferson.

I missed the game

How did the OL look? Was it all individual effort by Cook today or was the OL opening nice lanes? How did they look in pass protection? Just wondering if they are continuing to improve and how Ezra looks at RG

How about the rookies on D?

The Oline looked good again today, but the Lions are a terrible pass rushing team. Ezra did well in run blocking and pass blocking.

Wonnum was the standout of the rookies on D and at one point it looked like he took over for Odenigbo at RDE? Nothing from Lynch that I saw but I did stop watching in the 4th. No glaring mistakes from any of the rookies in the secondary.

So ... you hope the team has NOT turned a corner?

Interesting.

The O-line was fantastic today, especially in the running game. They are getting better every week. Cleveland is really coming on, as is Bradbury. Certainly Cook is really good, but the guys up front gave him the seams he needed. Detroit's pass rush isn't the greatest, but it's still the NFL, and except for a corner blitz on Cousins' blind side that didn't get picked up, they kept Cousins clean all day.

Rookies on D ... Wonnum was winning a lot of pass rush battles. I thought he got held a lot, but nothing called, as is pretty much normal this season. Gladney looked tons better out there, very quick and in position. Plus he tackled like a young Antoine Winfield. Didn't see much of Lynch today. Dye played a little but wasn't particularly good.

Thanks StumpHunter!!!!

I am not surprised Wonnum is playing more but I am surprised he’s taking Odenigbo’s snaps and not taking them from Holmes. Although I am not sure how his skill set fits at LDE

Wonnum and Hunter next year could be exciting !!!
