Welp, I was way wrong. Our defensive line isn't any good at all. Three straight games without any sort of pressure whatsoever, and non impressive run D. We are in for a long season.

D only gave up 35 1st half yards and 12 total points, 3 of which were the result of an interception on our side of the field. Our defense was not at all the problem today.

I'm not normally a #FireShula reactionary, but our offense today was pathetic. We had two solid drives to start the game, and otherwise we were awful on O.

the vikings have a great defense, but that doesn't excuse our offense today.

next game is in Atlanta, hopefully we get back to .500

This game was solely on our offense all the way around. Cam needs to learn to get rid of the ball faster ( something he has always struggled with ). Our o-line didn't help him much especially in the second half. We didn't focus on benjamin ONLY which I like because I feel we have a ton of good receivers. If our o-line potects cam win 80 percent of our games. If not we will lose.
Wit da 22nd pick I wanted UNC's Brice Johnson mane or would have gladly taken brogdon, but we traded it for Marco Belinelli :banghead:

MRI on Panthers DT Vernon Butler confirmed a high ankle sprain, per league source. The first-round pick expected to miss a few weeks.

Our offense is gonna be fine, guys, its not the problem. We literally couldn't get pressure on Sam Bradford behind a terrible offensive line, nor could we get to Gabbert or Siemian. If we made any sort of stops in the 2nd half, to get field position, we couldve won. What the hell are we gonna do against Ryan or Brees or even Winston. We are going to get lit up. We are going to have to score 30 points or more to win the next three games. By extreme luck, the three teams in our division have the 3 worst defenses in the league (ours is just average) but it is extremely troubling if we want to get back to the Super Bowl.

Our defensive ends are well below average. Its time to accept it and try to figure out how to fix it. We can't keep playing the same schemes.
