Overconfidence is the only way we beat gb.

Overconfidence won't be enough for the Vikings to win. Overconfidence AND large cash payments to the refs and some key Packer players might be enough for the Vikings to win.

I'm surprised Frazier didn't wait until he was 63 points behind before he put Ponder in the game. Somebody must have told him to say he was starting ponder when really he is going to start McNabb wearing Ponder's jersey with a Grouch Marx mustache and coke bottle glasses. Brilliant subterfuge

They are pretty well coached.Coach Mc is fully aware and will and or is more then willing to let the team know they havent played a complete game yet and will not let them get ahead of themselves.They do have the experience from winning last year.Some may think the best thing that can happen to GB is that they lose a regular season game and some dont.IF GB loses, it will be because the other team executed their game plan better then GB did or had a better game plan then GB did and deserved to win it,not from GB being overconfident.

The coach can preach overconfidence till he's blue in the face, the players are not robots. The monster that is Favre was built up by the GB fans, if you don't think these players will get full of themselves with the overloaded praise, you don't understand human nature.
You can call it execution if you want, McCarthy doesn't tuck these guys into bed at night. Not too many more wins and these guys will think they can win sleepwalking.

well, then they get their asses handed to them in game 10 or so and no more pressure of an undefeated season then i guess.I get your point but although GB is once again one of the younger teams,they do have a few vets who i believe can keep it grounded and show the proper leadership having been there ect.Time will tell i suspect.

Enjoy the ride while it lasts. The Pats looked like a cinch to go undefeated, and with Brady, not too many picked NY. The Giants played a great game, but NE had the better team hands down. GB's only chink seems to be the defense, but Rodgers has been more than enough to compensate. If Aaron finally craps his pants against a much lesser opponent, GB could still win, but not against a quality team.
Without that stellar defense, if anything happens to Aaron it's time to turn off the lights.

The Packers can beat the Vikings sleepwalking. So I imagine they are already there.

I can't speak for every Packer fan, but I certainly am enjoying the ride and I have every intention of doing so as long as it lasts. The GREEN BAY PACKERS are world champions until they aren't.

I was replying to eric, a very decent and humble Packer fan even though he hates the Vikes.
Such novel attributes are important, but evidently unattainable for you.

GB has the better team, no arguements from me.
But as one ponders the source, sleepposting isn't working out all that well for you.

I still say Do you think the Packers would be undefeated if they had the Buffalo bills schedule?

Yes. Green Bay does have the better team. This is the first intelligent thing you have said. It's also the first time you have been right about anything. Congratulations!

Hi eric, GB is clearly the best team in the league right now. I cannot believe the Vikes did not get at least one receiver with deep threat potential, with AP drawing 9 in the box at times and McNabb having a plethora of knowledge in terms of being able to exploit that scenario and make the play action work and taking advantage on the 1 v 1 match-ups, all the Vikes needed was some talent at that position to be more competitive.
Not to mention how handcuffed the defenses are these days with the new rules implemented in the past few years, the league has truly become a Vertical league. There are 5 QB,s on track right now to break Marino

's passing record, yardage wise. You have to have the personnel to take advantage these scenarios and the Vikes do not while GB has the necessary horses as wideouts. I do not blame McNabb at all but I think it is time to get a more mobile guy in there and Ponder should be able to extend plays via his mobility, maybe he can buy enuff time to complete some passes downfield in one on one coverage when these D's put 9 in the box!!!!

I am enjoying the ride thank you very much!:)
quote by you.."If anything happens to Aaron,its time to turn off the lights"
YES,but, that could be said by just about every NFL team,BUT, some teams have better backups then others'
I have shown respect to every GB opponent because i realize this is the NFL and sometimes a team,not as good can win because of a better day,or execution of a game plan or a better game plan ect so i take nothing for granted.ITs possible GB can go undefeated but ive stated many times,they have that 1 game every year where everything is out of pync and they play bad ( and im sure about every team can say that as well) and it wouldn't surprise me if they lost 2 or 3 games this year.Bottom line is they are amung the NFL best teams,Defending SB champs,realize the task at hand for the most part nd will go out there and give their all and again,we all will see how it works out as the season goes on.
