No Kitna?

It’s looking like Jon Kitna‘s back will keep him out of Sunday’s game, meaning the Vikings will instead face Dan Orlovsky, who would be making his first start in the NFL.  The prospect of facing a first time starter ought to make Leslie Frazier‘s mouth water.  I wanna see blitzes against Orlovsky.  Antoine Winfield might get himself yet another sack-fumble-touchdown play.  Hell, maybe two.  We blitz enough, it might even free up Jared Allen to get a sack.  He apparently needs to be entirely unblocked to even get close to the quarterback.  Otherwise it’s just the same speed move over and over and the QB just steps up and Jared doesn’t get close.  This is the best pass rusher in the league?

    I wasn’t sure if I should play Minnesota as my defense for FF this week. 

    But hell, now?  Of course I’m going to!

    hey, just wanted to clarify that I am very much a fan of your writing. I just get sensitive about Childress sometimes because I feel he is the major reason that the Vikes have become so competitive so quickly.

    Sorry if I flew off the handle a bit man…

    I hope Orlovsky eats a ton of turf this weekend. The Vikes need to get some anger out, don’t you think?
