    The running game was working. in the 3rd Q we finally ran 4 straight times for 2 first downs. They never stopped us.
    Our DBs still can't turn their heads and pick up the ball.
    Do we dare think we can sweep Minny? It would be the first time in 20 years.

    Brett Favre throws a steady diet of inside slants and our DBs are always on the outside looking in. They need to jump those and pick a few off.
    Last night's college game where LSU lost was because the Arkansas defender jumped the inside slant and picked it off..........a beautiful play.

    However a double pump by Favre and you get to line up for an extra point.

    The reason the slant pass was there was because the DBs were lining up 10 yards behind the line of scrimmage like they always do.

    They play that far off the line because they have no speed. Those quick shots Kitna's been throwing to Roy when he doesn't leave the line in the last couple weeks would eat our corners alive if an opponent tried them.
