^ seriously? If that's the way you beat the 49ers, I have no concerns.
Well get worried cause it beat us. with an average QB and an elite RB 9 months removed from a major knee surgery. were lucky that is how the vikings wanted to play this game because most other opponents wont dumb down their team to do it but those that have the skillset to play this will do it.

This formula esp. works when you know on 3rd and 5+ we'll be playing our CB's 15 yards off (S's 25 yards deep) and ALL of your receivers will have clean releases off the LOS. Simple if you've got a mobile QB just in case there is some pressure (see QB rushing TD and ad-lib plays). Study up Fangio!!!!!
Thank you NCommand. I dont know why NB wont listen to it but we lost because we gave to much to the vikes. They took what we gave them and won with it. end of discussion, Fangio needs to study up, tighten this D and not be so soft.
It was so bad, when I was watching the game with my son, we'd play a game..."Which CB was giving the largest cushion?" We had little arguments as to who was actually giving more...but the point? Whoever gave up the largest cushion got victimized every single time for EASY catches esp. on 3rd downs. It was REALLY sad to watch. It was the difference in the game IMHO. Seriously, go watch the tape
. You could see Ponder's confidence (in himself and the game plan) build with every completion. And b/c of those huge cushions (and free releases off the LOS), Ponder had all the time in the world to scramble, run for TD's, ad-lib, etc.
