Offensive line problems that surfaced in the summer when, among other things, grossly overweight LT Bryant McKinnie was released, did not abate in the Vikings opener.  Moreover, insiders were voicing concerns throughout the preseason about McNabb’s rapport (or lack thereof) with a new-look receiving corps still dealing with the departure of Sidney Rice to the Seahawks.

Those articulating such fears now seem omniscient after the former Eagles and Redskins pilot completed only 7-of-15 passes for a measly 39 yards, rarely daring to throw downfield in the opener vs. the Chargers.  Minnesota head coach Leslie Frazier stated the obvious after the game, noting the Vikes need to better balance their offense.

At the moment, it looks like RB Adrian Peterson and not much else in the Twin Cities, although the always-dangerous Percy Harvin did bring the opening kickoff back 103 yards for a touchdown at Qualcomm.  Peterson rushed for 98 yards vs. the Chargers, well over half of Minnesota’s puny 187 yards worth of offense in the opener.
