Preseason Game #2: Vikings Defeat Jets 37-20

Posted by LOTGK on August 17, 2007

No Soup For You

Chad Greenway is beginning to become my new favorite player on the Minnesota Vikings. Not just because of his work ethic, or his athletic ability, but because of his demeanor. And oh yea, because of his catch phrase, “No soup for you” after he stopped a runner for no yards in last weeks game against the Rams. And last week, I could swear I heard him saying it again as he stepped in front of a Pennington pass and returned it for a touchdown. Greenway finished the night with four tackles and the interception.

I was a little surprised when Childress pulled Tarvaris Jackson after his brief appearance. Jackson needs all the reps he can get. He needs “Live” game time experience. Sitting on the bench charting plays isn’t cutting it. I would have liked to see him play at least the first half, especially how the game evolved, with the offense only seeing limited offense. It was hard to gage Jacksons performance, only going 2-4. I think Childress made a mistake here.

Well, Adrian Peterson certainly lived up to his 7th over all draft selection last night. on his first carry last night, he went right, ducked inside, made a spin move, and bolted to the sideline and clipped of 43 yards finishing up pounding the defender at the end of the play. Several plays later, he made his way up the middle from the three yard line and scored. Yes Viking fans, a rare and welcome site indeed. A rushing touchdown from the Vikings.

Let me get this straight, was it Troy Williamson that couldn’t hold onto the ball, or was it Bobby Wade?

I thought Bollinger wasn’t going to get up from the sack. His legs were bent backwards, and the blow he took, snapped his entire body back. And yea, he fumbled. He was bringing his “A” game last night against his former team, but alas, he failed the grade. Drew Henson is toast BTW.

Who else hates Joe Buck, Fox announcer? Ever since the Randy Moss wiping his ass on the goal post game, (Sorry again Vikings fans for mentioning Randy Moss once again in the updates) Buck has had a chip on his shoulder for the Vikes.

Ray Edwards, you know you are now on game tape biting for the lame hard count drawing you off sides. Get used to it Ray, you will be hearing it all season long.

The Jets went after Cedric Griffin last night testing his coverage skills. For the most part, he did OK. However, in he not so most part, he made a poor attempt on a tackle allowing McCareins to score from 35 yards out when the play should have been stopped for a 5 yard gain setting up 4th down.

Kicker and punter Reyes. See ya later. His kickoffs were terrible and his punts, well, were not so good either. Kluwe by default has earned the spot.

Staying with the not so special teams, the Vikings really suck on punt and kickoff coverage. This is by far the weak link on the team. The Jets enjoyed exceptional starting field position all night long and they almost broke several big gainers. On the Viking side, we were adequate at best, starting around our 25 yard line. I will say I got pumped when Longwell connected on a 54 yarder at the end of the half. With no time outs and only 15 seconds left, the team set and converted.

Sidney Rice, two nice catches, and he took a licking and kept on going. We need a receiver like this. Allison, looking to break in as a return specialist, needs to change up his theory, or he will be toast.

Was hoping for more sacks last night. I know we had two, but i wanted the first team to record several. Yes I know, we got pressure, and Robison caused a fumble, but for the pass defense to work, we need sacks. Perhaps blitzing more would help.

Childress, he actually smiled and laughed at the end of the game last night. Hopefully, someone has taken the cork out of his ass and he can loosen up a tad. A tight coach makes for a tight team.

Final thoughts. Waited to see Jackson play, and while he was in, played well, but did not get enough reps. If Jackson were a veteran QB, I would not be concerned, (Peyton Manning doesn’t need two quarters of reps in a preseason game) but i still remember that Jackson came from Alabama State, a small college with only two years experience. With a new cast of receivers, he needs to get him timing down with them, and “Live” game time reps is the best for this.

All in all, it was a good game, Peterson showing what he can do, Rice stepping up, and Greenway solidifying the linebackers with a very impressive game. With that said, instead of the usual ending of Skol Vikings, I’ll leave you with…..
No soup for you.
