The other surprise. Wright. I didn't see that coming.

I think Waynes is fine. I don't know why people are so down on him.

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+


Further point on the run defense Kendrick in particular looked strong at the point of attack good improvement from last year when he was constantly pushed backwards on tackles.

Agreed. I didn't expect it, so it was even more gratifying.

Loved seeing Cook outshine AD too. We made the right choice there. Biggest highlight was seeing an OL actually hold up for the most part.

When Cook accelerates around the corner it's a sight to behold.

Seriously good blocking from our offensive line tonight. And that everyone stayed healthy. Was scared about Rhodes there for a sec

Most disappointing thing I saw tonight, Cook getting tackled by a LB keeping him from taking it to the house.

So Davin is on track for a 2,032 yard season rushing, Sam will pass for 5,536 yards, and Thielen will have 2,512 receiving yards. And that doesn't even include the post-season! If only....

Saints fans are saying the same thing about their defense.

Didn't appear to be any bad injuries which will be key on a short week including travel to Pittsburgh.

So unfortunately I've been at work so haven't been able to watch the game yet but man it sounds like they looked awesome. I'm super pumped to watch it tonight when I get home now! What a start to the season and they made AP yell at Payton lmao.

Man what a great game to be at! Solid performances all around (except the missed PAT). I had a really nice vantage point and I noticed Treadwell runs routes well, Sam just always looks Diggs and Thielens way. Not complaining just interesting to see, he definitely can contribute more.

Must have been amazing. Plus you got to see Moss inducted.

They gave everyone signs that spelled Randy Moss on the sideline and 84 in the end zone. Wasn't perfect but pretty cool. Moss seemed really appreciated.

Sam 27/32 for 346 yards :thumbsup:

Thielen & Diggs nice game!

Cook impressive in his debut.

Wayne's had 9 tackles

AP = All Pout tonight...18 yards rushing.

Complete game on both sides of the ball.

I know!

*whispers*

Rookie AD would've housed it

I'm still bummed at AD's last few years. We were robbed. Glad we have Cook but the memberberries are potent you guys.

I wonder if Rodney Adams gets cut for Floyd, seems like Coley has surpassed him on the depth chart.

This was huge. Good on Reiff. Let's hope it continues. He was a major reason why Sam balled out.

Bradford's 143.0 QB rating is a career high.

Great way to start.
I was much more impressed with the D tonight, especially the run D. Pretty much dominated a known commidity in the Saints offense...specifically in the red zone.

Hard to know yet about the Vikes offense due to the Saints having a suspect D. I'm not expecting Sam having 3full seconds to throw to be a regular event, although it could be.
The line played fundamentally well, i didn't notice much in the way of guys just whiffing on their assignments as was fairly normal that past couple seasons.
Bradford showed what he can do when he can breathe back there. I hope this puts some of the doubts to rest, he's a really capable QB.
Cook was a steal. He looks like he can do it all.
Pittsburgh will be a much more reliable litmus test, and it's good they took care of a team they should've beat at home, picking up that momentum and confidence.

I can't stop watching the highlights on Vikings.com.

It's been so long since we had anything resembling an explosive offense. I honestly don't know how to react except to keep watching like some obsessed 40-year-old hermit living in his mother's basement.

Thank you for the Treadwell insight. I think the kid needs to get in Bradford's face more. Let your QB know that the Vikings drafted him in the first round for a reason.

Great game. I have no problem eating crow if I was wrong about saying this team looked like last year's team. However Bradford is still getting smack around immediately after he releases the ball. He has never shown he can go a full season taking those types of shots.

It's hard, though, when you look SO BAD during preseason. I was truly concerned about this offense. Never expected a 470-yard explosion, even against the Saints' defense.
