But the suspension of Pat and Kevin Williams will be tough for the Minnesota Vikings.

Pat Williams got hurt last year and we could all see how that effected the defensive line, but with Kevin Williams gone as well, it's going to be misery.

Less sacks and run-stopping will be coming for Minnesota while more touchdown may be coming for their opponent.

On the other hand, Jared Allen will be the one who will have to step up his game with the absence of the "Williams Wall."

Minnesota could use some other player to help the line in the beginning of the 2009-10 season.

It's going to stink that the Vikings will have to go four games with the "Williams Wall."

My prediction is Jared will get five sacks by the time the "Williams Wall" will be back to help him out.

If the Williams don't get the suspension that is expected, then Minnesota will be back with one of the strongest defenses in the NFL, including the very valuable run-stopping ability..

After all, it is the Williams Wall, and Wall is the keyword in that group.
