Maybe, just maybe?

So being as we have no good options at Qb, but do have 2 very talented running backs and a WR that is a former Qb (even if his pass last week didn't show it, he has thrown a few nice balls before) Would anyone else like to see the Vikings implement some form of "Wildcat" offense?

If Chester or AP can throw even a quick dump pass to the flats or a short slant, it may work? It would open up the feild somewhat to be able let the back read the feild and run off tackle or pitch it wide or visa verse. If nothing else it would be something to watch.

Or if that is to much for Chilly to think of I would love to see AP and Taylor in the backfeild together more often, run split backs and do some crossing action or Taylor in at a tight slot and run a quick reverse, not these long end around that we see from time to time.

Sorry rr56 Chilly would collapse on the sideline if that offense was even thought about! Remember the feud between him and Brad because Chilly would not let him audible.

I am with the second part, Chili's head would explode trying to scheme that up.

There would have to be something inside of his head to cause an explosion. I say he'd implode. He gets closer every weekend.

Hmm....well given those options, I think the players should maybe just try it on their own...

The athletes on professional defenses are so strong and so fast that a lot of these style offenses just wouldn't work. Maybe once or twice as a gimmick play, but if you lined up and tried to run options, double dives, crossbucks and that type of stuff in the NFL, the defenses would EAT YOU UP.

I have been saying the vikings need to try the wildcat since I first saw Miami doing it. We have 2 good rb's and plenty of talent to run it. But like you guys said Chilltard must think that too risky! I hope hes gone at the end of the season. Maybe we could get Billick or Chower?

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
