The Minnesota Vikings are so close but yet so far away. Like most of the losses this year. The defense hold the opponent close and the offense cannot play consistently.In this game the Vikes started with Kelly Holcomb under center against the Eagles. While he was in he did little passing, he was 7-for-16 for 88 yards and a touchdown.All game he could not put together a consistent drive.He was relieved of his duties when Juqua Thomas drove his head into the turf for a sack early in the third quarter.
After that in came Brooks Bollinger to give the Vikes offense some spark in the 2nd half. He completed 7-of-10 passes for 94 yards.Brooks looked more mobile than Holcomb did all day and his accuracy is better than Jackson.For the rest of the season go with Brooks he gives us the best chance to win games.
Our rushing attack was stopped to a stand still today. The Eagles stop out offense the rushing game . We had 105 yards today. I believe it was the lowest total thus far this year. Peterson had more touches , but it did not pan out. he had 70 yards on 20 carries.
The Eagles offense did well today finishing with 323 net passing yards, using short passes to equalize the lack of success in the run game 62 yards.Our DBs are getting burnt by everything team it seems like this year, plus due to the fact we have one of the best rush defenses in the league this year again.
Are we too late??
After shocking the NFL with the Chicago game they have gone in a 2 game skid again. I think that they need to win this next game against the Chargers to even consider a playoff run. We need to be more consistent at the quarterback position to think we are going to win anymore games this year.We need an offense in a hurry to think about a run. Each loss the vets are growing more and more frustrated. All I can say is this Skol Vikings.
