 If the Saints could run against the Vikes, why not us?
The second half of the saints game showed the viking's front 7 can be had. Maybe it happened because of Brees in the first half, maybe not. Henne is no Brees yet. What do you guys think? Should henning try to air it out in the first quarter?

I saw the same thing, cutback lanes were wide open in the 2nd half for the Saints. Hopefully Henning doesn't outsmart himself this week.

Because the Saints have Pro Bowl guards...we do not.

Yeah, but the interior is the point of attack on every play.

The RB's are the ones who make the play.

Who cares lol. Miami's run game was better than NO's last year, and it's better now.

Anyway...Yes, we should be able to run the ball. If I am the Vikes, I'm stacking the line and daring Henne to beat us. Hopefully the pass will open up the run.

I hope Henning allows Henne to attack downfield more. Especially on 1st downs on play action. I would expect Minnesota to stack the box and try and cover Marshall forcing the Phins to go elsewhere. Hartline, Bess and Fasano need to get more looks at the football. Miami was very predictable on offense after the 1st quarter in the Bills game.

..... Because the Saints can pass the ball better than the majority of the league.

I'm not sure what you're "not caring" about...the fact that Miami was "better" at running is because New Orleans threw the ball a lot more, and they did it successfully. New Orleans' interior line, however, is better than Miami's.

Yes. Never disputed that.

I'm not even sure what we're arguing. So whatever. We'll agree to disagree on whatever it is that we are disagreeing on.

Maybe because it was the first 15 minutes of the season and it's likely that perhaps only 1/2 of the offense is even installed?

Just sayin'.

iowa, why is everything such an argument with you? Calm down a little. We are all rooting for the same team, right? There are a lot of factors that go into a running game. I think the Vikes stack the line and make Henne beat them.

We will run don't worry. We've run through 8 before. We will do it again. Jared Allen is the guy to worry about. We'll see how our Pro Bowl LT handles their Pro Bowl DE.

I am plenty calm, and wasn't aware there was an argument. I merely answered the question, and now I am speaking contrary to what you have seen, so don't mistake this as an argument either.
