neither safety have an interception or fumble recovery, but not even one pass deflection. Really?
Also factor in this team is allowing more big plays through four games than last year. That was a rarity the last two seasons.
So you have to wonder just how the safety position has been improved.
Oh, and if we're comparing the Vikings from last January to now, we have to mention Mr. Moss right? Sure, Rice is out, but I think it's a big upgrade with Moss now in there - especially if Moss is facing the Cowboys.
For more than a decade, I've personally watched Moss torch guys like Terry Billups, Kevin Smith, Jason Kaiser, Darren Woodson, Kevin Mathis, Phillippi Sparks, Kareem Larrimore, Izell Reese ... and the list goes on and on.
I really don't think you can put Terence Newman in that group because he's played Moss well at times.
But looking at that list, you think Moss really is worried about Alan Ball or even Orlando Scandrick or anyone for that matter?
The fact is, the Cowboys left the Vikings game last January knowing they had to improve the offensive line and safety position.
Regardless of their own record, the Vikings' record, the Vikings' quarterback situation or their newest receiver addition, the Cowboys enter Sunday's game in Minnesota with the offensive line and safety position as two big issues.
It's debatable if they're better off right now at either spot. Maybe we'll find out the answer to those two questions Sunday evening.
