A brief Methodist-style post for now.
Bernard Berrian: through eight games Berrian has 621 yards--how many Viking fans were optimistic enough to think that would happen? He's a real deep threat. His 55 yard catch off play-action on the first play of the game showed the Texans they had to account for him, and his 49 yard touchdown catch later in the game gave the Vikes a two touchdown lead. His presence is meaningful for this team.
Pass Coverage against TEs and RBs is bad. The Vikings really feel the loss of E.J. Henderson in this area. Today Owen Daniels had 11 catches for 133 yards and Steve Slaton had 8 catches for 56 yards. The Vikings contained Andre Johnson, but they got shredded by TEs and RBs in the pass game. They're going to have to do something different in coverage.
Please, share your joys and concerns about the Vikings after their win against the Texans brings them to 4-4.
