Let me start off by saying: The Vikings beat the Saints fair and square in the Dome last week. But should they have? The answer is NO!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, Brees did not have a great game and turned over the ball twice. Yes, Wil Lutz missed a kick he normally made during the regular season. And Yes, the defense allowed Dalvin Cook to get going and subsequently gave Cousins the juice he needed to attack the Saints downfield. But the biggest culprit in the loss last week I believe was COACHING!!!! Payton got outcoached by Zimmer. The biggest thing I don't understand about Sean Payton is why does he refuse to ride something that is showing to be working. When Latavius Murray got to carry the ball he would get 4 to 6 yards. But then, he is running to the sidelines....WHY???????? Line up and do it again until they stop him!!!! I'm seeing Taysom Hill going beast mode against a Vikings defense that had no answers for him. But then Payton goes away from it...WHY???????????? Line up and do it again until they stop him!!!! I'm seeing Shanahan run the ball 8 straight times and having success....There is no "boy genius" to that strategy. Sometimes, you just have to have a no nonsense approach to calling plays and stop trying to trick and fool people!!!!
