Dalvin Cook is the NFL’s leading rusher on a team still trying to find offensive balance.

I think it’s a bit extreme to go off 2 weeks and base the season on those. Dalvin might only get to 1000 yards this year himself, because to think he is going to go crazy like he did last week all year is insane. Fingers crossed he can, but I don’t see it.
I think the running game has a chance to really improve over what we have seen so far ~ Same goes for the passing game ~ The OL is not only learning a new blocking scheme but the only players returning to the same position they played last year is Reiff & O’Neill ~ There are also two new IOL and Elflein is back at OG for the first time in 4 years ~ The last time he played OG was at OSU ~ Bradbury is a rookie who is getting bashed because he has gone up against 2 of the best 3~4 NT in the NFL ~ He has had two different left OG in week 1 Elflein and week 2 Dozier ~ I think Beebe has a good chance to stand out in the slot if he can stay healthy ~ The Vikings have been working out WR this week so we know they may not be set with Beebe and Johnson as the #3 and 4 WR ~ Plus the Vikings have yet to get the TE’s involved in the passing game other than blocking ~
Lastly, I’m one of the few guys who believes Stefanski is on a short leash ~ If he doesn’t get the offense scoring often and early and the Vikings for whatever the reason get off to a 1~2 record he could be turning over all of the game planing and play-calling to Gary Kubiak\Dennison after the misses with Norv and JDF ~ Pat Shurmur has been the only above-average OC under Zim ~ And all the coaches are coaching for a new contract plus Spielman ~ There was a reason why the Vikings didn’t turn the offense over to Stefanski without a backup plan ~ JMHO ~ As always please remember I know just enough to get us all in trouble ~ Cheers
TOTALLY agree with above on Stefanski. Just NOT a fan. Guy’s done ZERO as an offensive mind in his life. These guys have a Dad complex with the guy. Running’s going great, passing for s**t. Don’t tell me KEV has anything to do with pushing blocks and getting Dalvin loose.
