This is what is so unbelievable to me. We just played the Vikes in preseason that that's what they did to us ie attack the middle of the field with short/intermediate passes to Rudolph. Jeez, any reason to think they'll continue to use this strategy in the regular season game? Hello! That's and a decent running game is all the Vikings have to offer. Seems like a pretty simple defensive game plan to me!
But no! The Vikes did exactly that strategy AGAIN and we weren't ready for it AGAIN. This loss was a team piss poor effort but the biggest turd was laid by the coaching staff. We were under prepared and under motivated for this game.
Hard to give a pass for this lack of effort. We simply have too much talent be it the players or the coaches for this type of let down. If we lose after giving it our all then it doesn't hurt as much. But mailing an effort in via proxy is INEXCUSABLE.
