The greatest throw on earth...

I like the Vikings as the underdog...Just like last week, let the experts run their mouths and watch the Vikings shut them...What's a matter Hodge can't admit that your Dallas over Minnesota was a amateur's breakdown at best...picking winners should have at least have some type of common sense in your biased analogy . Mark Slairinger and Trent Dilfer base their pick's on half brain assumptions too. Hoping Farve doesn't shatter their preseason predictions of "the inevitable late season meltdown" "interception love fest" ...The Farve Minnesota haters club are looking more like closet Green Bay Packer fans everyday spewing more envy and jealousy ... ESPN brass should send these clowns packing like they did Shawn Salisbury...Get some personality and some intelligent analyst who base their in depth analogy's on the games coaching strategy , key personnel match ups and play off experience, not a bunch of washed up jocks in suits who go to the Terry Bradshaw's announcer school of buffoonery...You think they would be a little more careful in their predictions this week but they are so sure that they'll get their "I told ya so" movement this Sunday, they cant resist picking the Saints even though they predicted Dallas to go to the Super Bowl last week and based that assumption loosely on how Dallas beat the undefeated Saints a couple weeks before...Now the Vikings are going into New Orleans where the mighty Saints are gonna shred are D just because there at home where they lost to Dallas and there also the victims of a devastating hurricane four years ago.( Sorry folks, I'm gonna tell it like it is... "We own the Saints" just like we've owned the Cowboy's for the last decade, old Saints fans know it and Vikings fans know it...1987 wild card upset in the Super dome, anybody remember Bobby Hebert "Who dat gonna beat them Saints, We dat that beat them that year...The 2000 divisional round at the Metrodome, anybody remember Aaron Brooks...Last year at the Super Dome we beat Drew Brees and Co. with Gus Freaking Ferrotte...Were not exactly trembling over here New Orleans. Some teams just have another teams # so until you prove other wise we see it as, business as usual...and bonehead so call experts who look like over paid local weather men who couldn't tell the difference between a football legend and a flash in the pan, please do us all a favor...Shut your collective Farve hating pie holes and go get a real job and leave the expert opinion to some real former pros who were actually good football players and coach's that can comprehend the talent and wisdom of a future hall of Famer like Brett Farve" The greatest throw on earth...kinda catchy, I must say so myself...Pun intended...

Dr. Fix, nice pun (as puns go). Good post, hard to disagree with you. Personal opinion, I like Chris Collinsworth as an announcer. He calls 'em as he sees 'em. Hate Joe Buck.
