Thoughts after 3 quarters, Lions, Vikings

- It doesn't matter if it's Michael Vick, let alone Joe Webb, but there is no excuse for allowing any quarterback to break leverage for a 65-yard touchdown run like that. Webb walked home with it, too. Brutal breakdown by the Lions defense, which looked like it was running in quicksand on the play.

- The Lions strategy against Webb should be very simple. Have try to beat them with his arm, not his legs. Doubt he can do it.

- Like the idea of Titus Young on slant patterns. He is extremely quick and elusive. Great play against Cover 2 defenses rolling their coverage toward Calvin Johnson.

I'm usually a real supporter of Cunningham but he almost blew it this game. The whole second half he's in a 3 man, drop-back defense letting the very mobile QB run all over the place. Not ONE change in the defense the whole second half. Not one blitz to put the guy in trouble.

That was a very lucky win, and Cunningham would have been culpable if we had lost.

He was playing the odds and he almost got burned.

Feels like Anonymous was watching a different game from me. Webb WAS running all over the Lions, before Cunningham put a QB spy in for every play. That finally shut Webb's running attack down.
Blitzing was doing absolutely nothing. He kept avoiding every defender that came at him and then he'd burn us ... it was a pretty impressive performance for a no name QB. Thankfully not impressive enough.

I stand corrected ... yep, I saw the spy that was indicated a few times during the broadcast.

Yeah, that did it, we really shut him down. He only got 45 yds in about a quarter after that 65 yd run.

Just like a blanket. After that spy, we had the game in the bag.

He was running on us at will before the spy. After that, on that last drive, he was actually forced to try and pass on most plays. Not many of the yards on that last drive was due to Webb's running.
