Who among the receiving corp would like to step-up and be the number 1 receiver? Why doesn't the Vikings put big guys up front - McKinney, Hutchinson, Cook, Degeare, and Loadholt - for maximum QB protection and creating holes for AP, TG, and company? Get some offensive line help because it is a long season and a return specialist. Aren't they able to design one play for Joe Webb?

I hope that Bret and the receiving corp will be in season form after the bye. Get another offensive lineman and a return specialist. I hope you guys would be relatively healthy this year. Good luck!

And please stop a couple of passes on defense, as the DB's look awful. Shaaron will take you apart, if you dont get a lot better in the defensive backfield, and the D Line doesnt start getting after the QB , like the other teams get after Favre. Why cant our O Line keep the other defense off of Brett like they are being paid to do. Favre will not last half the season if our OL does not improve greatly, and fast.

It was great seeing the defense intercept two in the endzone. Well done, Lieber, Winfield. Skol Vikings.

Dominating performance? Oh come on! Hill was solely responsible for the two interceptions in the endzone because of poor throws and not because of great defensive plays. If the Lions hadn't made crucial mistakes the score would have been closer. If the Vikings had been playing a better team, they would be 0-3. Don't get too giddy about this win.

Not all that "giddy" about the win, but its a win at least. Most of the Lions passing yards came in the 4th, when the Vike's D went into "prevent" mode. And let's not forget that Favre's early TO resulted in the only TD that the Lions scored. The Viking's D is in the top 10 in everything but turnovers, so it was nice to see them finally get a few.

Dominating performance against the Lions? Wow...Queenie fans must be really hard up for reasons to boost the team's prospects. Bert is starting to sound like a sissy, the receivers are already wusses, and Chilly still resembles a pervert. I'm predicting that in 2 weeks, Bert's season comes to an abrupt halt against the pay-back minded Jets. Yesterday's stinger will look like a hang nail.

Hey Queenie fans...Your hope and desperation are so obvious. You might as well "Pack" it in, as we are Super Bowl bound. Do yourselves a favor and get a professional football team. Maybe a UFL franchise! LMFAO!

Nope; no way Hill was responsible for Winfield's interception. That was a bobble by the receiver and Winfield's quick reflexes winning a battle for it after the receiver had the initial touch. It still goes to Winfield making the play: a positive for the Vikings.
