5 sacks and lots of pressure and no openings for JT

 

how did LT do today?

 

LT played not bad but the problem is still RG Pinter. His pass blocking grade of 39.1 ranks him 60th among guards thats before this game, and he got again in this game or having Kelly Smith busy helping Pinter out and allowing sack. It is a mess Glowinski looks like most underrated and underappreciated here. 

 

OL and Matts fumble are concerning. 

 

Kicker was concerning, but looks that that has been resolved. WR when all played was good Like Pierce Pittman and Woods. Run D and overall the D played well specially Thomas after Blackmon got injured. 

 

so yeah OL, Matty fumbles

So Pryor quietly has a decent game and no one wants to give him props? Also, everyone pump the breaks of Smith having a bad game.

Pryor and Smith allowed just 1 QB hurry between them yesterday, and Pryor had the best run blocking grade on our OL.

I think this O-Line isnt as bad as people are making it out to be. Has it been a strenght of the team so far? No absolutely not. BUT, I really do think a lot of the errors are very fixable and will be fixed with more time for Matt Ryan and the O-Line to be on the same page, setting the right protections etc.

Pinter has been bad though, ill grant that, he is getting bulldozed. Other than that, our guys arent getting 'beat' all that much, they are just blowing protections and people are running right through... That isnt the OL being incapable, its the O-Line not being in sync yet, not having the communication with Matt Ryan down yet.

Come week 6 or 7 i expect this Offense to look entirely different.

Pinter and Smith have been the biggest issues on the OL. Hopefully, Bernhard Raimann replaces Matt Pryor once he comes back from injury. The Colts need to get Pinter out of the lineup but I'm not sure anyone they have on the roster right now is any better.

Maybe yank pinter out and put the rookie at guard. Pinter is messing up the entirety of the line

I agree. I need to watch the all 22 to break it down more but it looked like the pressure from the outsides wasnt a huge issue.  They talked about it a lot on tv how guys were coming in unaccounted for. Frank Clark absolutely destroyed Pinter on one play.  The interior OL of Pinter and Kelly felt like it had the bad game yesterday.

same, once our ol kicks in. i wish we played every team like we play kc. im not doubting this team can put up high scores, but were not going to put up 35 every week.plus we do it against kc, we can do it to anyone.

Glow has been almost as been as Pinter for giants , don’t know if he is injured but reed hasnt played at all for Vikings. We all knew Pinter was to small to be playing rg he doesn’t have to size or strength for rg which is normally maulers

One weak link can hurt the whole squad which is Pinter , some of the pressures is on Matt Ryan to holding the ball which I think will be fix by mid season ,

Move Pryor to RG and start Raimann at LT

My biggest concern is Reich.  

4th down at midfield when you are up 7-0 is not the time to go for it.  The fumble could have cost us the game.    I'm starting to think he is an *.

Our defense was playing well and we were ahead. A real headscratcher .

    • I'm far behind in player Evaluations, but I'd say a couple of things.   While the testing and drills at the Combine are very important, and let the fans see what would otherwise be available to only teams up close, I'd be wary of not taking Combine, senior Bowl, etc., over the college tape. Combine measurements should supplement in player Evaluations and should not be taken at the forefront.   The way some players got moved up multiple rounds after their performance in senior Bowl and subsequent player rankings and mock drafts are cautionary tales, but it would continue to happen after Combine too.   It's very important to make sure the player checks all the boxes or as much as possible but essentially play on the field, and what we get from Combine does surely factor into some of the boxes.   That's one of the reasons I don't speak much in praise of Ballard (not against either, but just holding back judgement) due to his propensity to have players check boxes essentially on player measurements, metrics, size, arm lengths, athleticism and RAS scores.    As long as better Combine performance moves up players few spots on same round or day, I'd be okay with it.   When a player shoots up multiple rounds up or down the board or too much to get close to Day 1/2 all of a sudden, based on Combine measurements, I'd be wary of those evaluations. 
    • A large part of vocal Vikings fans in the popular forum are homers, and if we get another Christian Ponder, they'd spend two or more years hyping him up as better than Kirk Cousins.. in fact, they spent more than half a decade saying Kirk will take next step and be a force in playoffs or important games. Funnily, he started playing more freely only in last two years as he has achieved enough financial freedom and he ended up injured, which is why Kirk has been very careful to not get injured for most of his career at the expense of making plays outside the structure. Kirk is pretty smart taking care of his career and earnings and subsequent contracts heavily favored on his terms, and fans didn't realize, some even now.    The reason I'm saying all that is respectability is very subjective. I don't know what's worse for the respectability than not even sniffing play-off success for decades save for a year or two here and there and having won no SBs in 6 decades but just being a Middling team year after year, not picking even close to either top 5 or bottom 5 in the draft.    It's better to lose QB and WR, if it helps find a franchise QB for Vikings. Like Bears, Vikings franchise QB history is only good for homers. There's nothing worse than being perennial average team, and trying to find FUN in the season. Vikings don't have an RB and run game too, after discarding Dalvin Cook needlessly.   I'd say respectability be damned, be absolute worst if you've to, and only focus Vikings should have is finding their franchise QB. If this GM is not looking seriously at that, I'm not sure what their plan will be. This GM has looked like running headless chicken so far, but he's got good HC and DC for now. Let's see what they do, but they don't need to sell the farm to find franchise QB, they just need to have sole focus in finding one in next few years and grab the opportunity with both hands when it is presented or do make necessary moves to get that opportunity present itself.    Having said that, we talk about trading JJ only because he's made some statements and has been visibly upset or get lonely during losses or when the team is gonna miss playoffs. If Diggs does the same, they'd call him absolute Diva but JJ has made more scathing remarks publicly so we're thinking it may not be good idea to have an elite WR get disgruntled every year and Rather help him get to a contender (Like Texans as you said) and utilize the return in finding a franchise QB. 
    • I do want to follow this up with, If I see someone that really wow's me, I would consider taking them over Bowers. You have to be open minded in this thing and study different area's. I just see Bowers as a can't miss. If Bowers and Odunze both are there at #15, I would be 50/50 on who to take. I doubt both will be there though.
    • I just seen this and normally I would agree with you about the Pacers, but I think they will be a very tough out in these playoffs. This team looks different than the one's that have recently had a decent record, but we knew would be 1 and done. They are #1 in offense is why. They can outscore almost every team in the league most nights. They would have a better record, but Haliburton missed 2 weeks earlier in the season. Boston is the only team in the East that looks dominant, but they tend to choke every year, so I am not even sold on them. I think the Pacers at worse end up with a #6, stay out of that playin and will win a series if not 2 this year.    Regarding Clark, she is the best College Basketball player I have ever seen with the exception of Cheryl Miller, Reggie's sister. That says a lot because players Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore, Brittney Griner, and Candice Parker who were no slouch in college.
