Vikings Lose To Seahawks 34-17

Posted by LOTGK on August 9, 2008

Vikings lose to seahawks

#4 John David Booty – Not #4 Brett Favre

The 2008 NFL season began for the Vikings last night hosting the Seattle Seahawks. Vikings lost 34-14. In this game, the Minnesota Vikings debuted it’s new and improved defense last night. They promptly allowed Seattle to march the length of the field and score a touchdown on the opening drive. Granted, big Pat Williams did not play as well as new safety M. Williams, bu the rest of the defense was on the field, including sack leader Jared Allen. Vikings recorded zero sacks last night.

On a brighter side, Tarvaris Jackson looked sharp. (Yes, sharp. This is not a typo) He was 8-11 for 118 yards and one TD. Coach Childress was dead set to prove that Jackson could handle the 7-8 man front blitzes with only his arm. The Vikings did not run the ball in the first two possessions. That means last years rookie sensation Adrian Peterson did not touch the ball. He was in the game, but no soup for you.

Tarvaris Jackson, passing grade. (Pun intended) For the most part, he made the right reads, made good passes, and looked sharp.

Offensive line. Passing grade. The line opened holes for the runners, when the Vikings decided to run and protected Jackson allowing him to roam and find his targets.

Wide receivers. Passing grade. Hard to believe, but the receivers looked like real NFL receivers last night. Bernanrd Berrian is already paying dividends. Three really good catches, one called back from penalty, and almost broke both catches for touchdowns. Even Bobby Wade looked good except for the almost fumble on the one catch. Rice looks poised to have a break out year in his second season.

Running backs. More like running on empty. Yes, I am aware that Peterson didn’t touch the ball, so I’m not concerned with him and Chester Taylor. However, with 23 carries for a whopping 52 yards does not cut it in the NFL. Toss in the fumbles, and the Vikings better hope AD and Taylor don’t get hurt.

Tight Ends. Non passing grade. Shiancoe caught one pass last night. He is supposedly an integral part of the offense this year. Not if he continues to fumble.

Special Teams. Passing grade. Field goal was made. Coverage was good. Return yards was very good. No fumbles, no dumb mistakes.

Defense, non passing grade. As mentioned above, Seattle’s first team offense moved right down field against the Vikings. In fact, 17 points were put up against the Viking defense in the first half. No sacks, no interceptions, no big hits.

Coaching. Passing grade. What! Passing grade! How can I score a passing grade when the Vikings lost? I’ll explain. Childress learned from last year. he saw opposing defenses stack the line with 7-8 man fronts to stop Peterson forcing Jackson to pass. It worked. Jackson was forced into many critical errors last season and the Vikings ended up 8-8 for the season.

Last night, Peterson was on the field. However, he did not touch the ball. Childress game planned to have Jackson pass, pass, and pass. With Peterson in the backfield, the defense showed 8 man fronts and Jackson passed his way out. And did it very well.

Parting shots. Bollinger is all but toast. He played about 2 minutes and the better part of the second half was devoted to John David Booty. Booty did adequate for his first NFL outing, going 9-18 for 82 yards with one fumble and one interception and a sack.

Receiver Reynaud made the team last night with his excellent return skills and catching abilities.

Brad Childress was more relaxed last night, and even smiled and cracked a joke with reporters.

Penalties were low, only three for the game. A significant decrease in penalties is a good thing. Penalties killed many a drives last year and kept other for opposing offense going. A decrease equates to more wins.

Next week the Vikings travel to Baltimore to battle the Ray Lewis and the Ravens. The Ravens love to blitz so another good test for Jackson.

    It was good to see the Vikes in action again but was concerned with the lack of pass defense once again. Seattle went up and down the field on the Vikes. Now the news is safety Williams is hurt, out about 6 weeks. We’re dropping like flies. I would like to see the defensive front four put plent yof pressure on the Ravens this weekend. Even get some sacks.
