Some thoughts on defense from the opening drive.
- Crisp execution from the Vikes... hat on a hat.. They came out with a plan and they did everything right...
- the 4th down TD pass at the goalline was a huge depleter.. but our guys did play very hard that drive.
- sissy-soft cushion from Rogers on TE Rudolph for a major first down on a slant? Are you f**king kidding me??
- Aldon Smith is half the player at 3-4 OLB VS what he was last year as a strictly rush DE in passing downs. Hesitation and slow to read plays... not looking good as an every down guy at this time.
- Willis and Bowman still looking so good in run D, but not so much in coverage.
- I wish Goldson were actually 5' 11" or 6' instead of 6' 2"... very Mike Rumph-like in his ability to cut and redirect..
