Yeah that was something I noticed too. I believe there was at least one 3rd and long where Culpepper had all day to throw, but the coverage was there so he just ran for the first down with only Robaire Smith chasing him. I also agree with what aj said about the chaos in the secondary. On the TD in OT there was no one over the top to help out in coverage even though the Vikes ran a very similar play shortly before that to Robinson and there was no over the top coverage then either. Robinson just dropped the ball, or he would have gone for 6 then. I did like what I saw of Robinson blitzing, and Babin had a great showing too. He showed the quickness and power that I'd been waiting to see from him all year. I hope this means he's getting more comfortable with his responsibilities, and will continue to improve.
