Biggers, Crowder And Vikings Playcalling

September 18th, 2011

Joe was bursting with joy when the Vikings got away from Adrian Petesron on their final drive

So the Vikings get the ball back leading 20-17 with 6:39 left in the fourth quarter and the Bucs need a stop.

After Adrian Peterson runs for a first down on 2nd-and-4, Joe nearly wet his pants with joy when the Vikings went to the air on first down. How the hell did they get away from Peterson with a chance to run out the clock and/or drive for a put-the-game-out-reach score? Tim Crowder batted down the pass.

Then the Bucs held strong on Peterson on second down, before E.J. Biggers was flawless in downfield coverage to force what turned out to be a crappy Minnesota punt.

Joe’s hat goes off to Biggers and Crowder, two guys who routinely fly under the radar and do the little things very well. And Joe’s damn happy the Vikings didn’t ride their top horse to try and win the game.

    I believe the term for Musgrave was “paralysis by analysis”. AP is unbelieveable, a game ball goes to Musgrave in my book.

    I saw it too, and if I did not know better, I would say the Vikings have a death wish.
    I surely thought we were going to see nothing BUT Adrian Peterson, the rest of the game.

    Laughable play calling really on their part during that drive. Put the ball in McNabb’s hands instead of AP? Imagine if Thomas was a Vikings fan, the field day he’d have!

    Biggers may have made the play of the game. Absolutely perfect coverage, don’t you think Thomas?

    I thought Biggers played lights out on Sunday the whole game. Every time I watched him play he was a blanket on the wide receiver. As good as Parker was on O. Biggers was as good on D. IMO
