If we want to win we got to stop the passing, it's killing us. The saints had their way with us we cannot win this way. go vikings.

Saints only rushed 3 and dropped 8 in coverage, Miami will bring a lot of blitz packages at Favre most likely, Favre will carve up that young and inexperienced secondary while picking up the blitz; they have 9 new starters on D compared to last year. But you are correct in the sense that Vikes still need to establish the run, balance is key.

There is a reason they play the game. Brandon Marshall has lost his flare~ It will be loud in the Metrodome which will play havoc on the fish! Vikings offense gets on track but you have to give AP more than 6 touches in the 2nd half! That is a no brainer~ Lets go!

We need Cook to play, his big body would be a big bonus. I think Henne and Marshall will move the chains frequently in this one. I just hope our guys play better offensively. If we do, we'll score more points than them. Vikings 31 Dolphins 24. SKOL VIKES!!

Cook is a rookie but I tend to agree. Their taller receivers will be a tough match up. I think the offense will come alive this week. Percy and Peterson should have a big day. Skol

Get up in thier face be physical with them,try to make them uncomfortable thus taking them out of there game.OH:And run Peterson down thier throats!! dON'T GIVE IN LIKE THE LAST GAME. Peterson should carry the ball 25-30 times a game. He's better in the 4th qtr. then the 1st by just wearing apponets down."GO VIKINGS."

MN has a good shot at a decent receiver by dealing with The Bolts.- Once the Defense got their $h!t together in the N.O. game, they did pretty good, all things considered. Check-out Brees' completions for how many thrown. The defense played good enough to win that game. It was the offense that came up short, IMO. 3 faults: BF needs more practice with receivers, Sid The Kid Rice is a big loss, & Peterson didn't carry enough.(Plus, they played SB champs in a hostile environment)

Antoine Winfield has always had big games against the Dolphins going back to his days in Buffalo. I do not expect that to change. Additionally, the Dolphins just cannot win in Minnesota. Expect a nice bounce back game for Favre and the rest of the Vikings. Vikings 24 Dolphins 10.
