Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Alan Williams is being questioned for his conservative strategy late in Sunday’s 27-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Williams dropped a defender into coverage while having only three pass rushers attack Dallas quarterback Tony Romo, whom was pressured by the Vikings for most of the day. Romo dissected Minnesota’s defense on a nine-play, 90-yard drive that ended with a 7-yard touchdown pass to Dwayne Harris with 35 seconds left in the game. “We were putting heat on him the whole day,” defensive linemen Brian Robison said to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “We had (three) sacks today.

  • Both the offense and the defense played better this game, but the decision to try and pull Dallas offside in that last 4th down was a stupid and colossal failure. Let the play clock run out, hand Dallas an additional 5 yards, and then not call a time out after the big pass play that followed. This was a clear coaching failure. As is two humiliating losing seasons in 3 years. Frazier has to go.
  • All of the coaches have to go. We have the talent. If you don't believe coaching can turn things around, look at Kansas City! Again, we pay for the whole thing, almost, so why do they tell us essentially to shove it? It's just too crazy to keep up with. Were I Adrian, Allen, Rudolph, and others, I would be questioning why they are letting my football career go down the drain.
