Don't worry the Vikes will crush the fraudulent Bears.

That's the right spirit, but don't be to hasty..Bears looked pretty good against the Slackers..One glaring mistake still on the field, is Favre taking forever to hand off to Peterson..Peterson is STILL set up too far back, behind Favre..The delay give the defense time to plug whatever hole that WAS open for Pete...

WHO DAT?
2--1 DAT!

Deer tracks, I think your TV may be distorted or maybe just your head.
The Bears really didn't look that good on Monday. There D was manhandled by the Pukers offense.
As far as AP, how do you explain the fact that he is the 2nd leading rusher this season? Because the D is plugging all the holes?
Time for you to watch some football before you do your commenting.

Peterson is good at running..Also very lucky to find an open hole every once in a while..Strange (except for you cow scewers in Sue Falls) that other posters that watch the Vikings, have said the same thing about Peterson being to far back from the center...BF4MVP? IF that means Barf for Most valuable player, stuff it up your A Whole. Not yet, pal...So far he has done NOTHING to earn that! Why don't you and the rest of the cow punchers in "Sioux Falls" Cow pasture country wake up..Go to K-Mart and buy a "Blue Light special TV and open those beery Eye Balls and TRY to pay attention what is going on with my Vikings...You uneducated Dolt..

I, agree the Lions, win means nothing. If you read the Detroit, newspaper they are talking about how the Lions defense actually improved against the Vikings, it was the first game the quarterback hadn't thown for over 280 yards, and they allowed right around their average so far running the ball. You do realize that the Lions, give up 149 yards a game rushing for dead last in the NFL don't you?

AD is the only one that should take of the bye week. Loadholt needs to look a film on his blocking technic. The Jets will come on his side with everything they got. Brett is setting a good example for all young players. The receiving core can use all the film they can get their hands on. Berrin needs to get better or cut him lose he is not worth the money.

Note to Chilly: Bye week means recover week, NOT vacation time. This offense needs to get on the same page and that means practice, especially Farve and the wide recievers. Practice breaks and having Farve anticipate the break and throwing BEFORE the break. Chilly..watch Payton Manning and his recievers, you just might learn something.

Well said Gunny, tough schedule but they can do it. After watching last nights game between the Packers and Bears and seeing they have zero running game, everyone has a chance to win the NFC North, except of course the lions.
YEAH, FOR SURE, GB has zero, zip, zilch, nada, not a mere semblance of a run game, that spells trouble for their team and for Rodgers who is gonna have to shoulder the burden, all these assinine GB fans on these threads that are sayin' Favre won't make it upright for the season better look in their own back yard, what of bunch of dipshitz.

Agree.. didn't they have something like 32 yards rushing against the Bears? With the Vikes rushing game and the Packers giving up about 117 yards per game I see the Vikes D pinning their ears back from start to finish on Rogers when they meet. Rogers will be running for his life... he'll be lucky if he's able to finish the game.

The Packers fans are pretty quiet this week.Ive said all along their one dimensional.Their not the best overall team.It was funny to see Rodgers and his championship belt routine get deflated.LOL

He held up well last year despite being sacked so many times but you don't want to tempt fate like that with your QB in this league too much, after all not everyone is BF, lol.

Lookin' ahead to October I would much rather 3 of those 4 games be at home rather than on the road but it is what it is right? 2-2 is the worst the Vikes can be that month, 3-1 would be ideal, with one of those wins of course being in GB. I think the vikes match up pretty well with those teams however. JETS ARE predominantly a run team and Vikes a run stopping machine. Sanchez is prone to make mistakes and Vikes can get good pressure on QB's when they really want to(Jet's line is top notch tho). Dallas at home, well look what the Vikes did to them last year, and GB without any run game will be vulnerable to the same rush that got to Rodger's last season. New England will be a formidable opponent but a lot can happen in 5 weeks in this league, we shall see-GO VIKES.

We have a lot in common. Hope our teams do well but deep down inside we both know it is going to end badly for the Vikes. Kind of like rolling a purple bowling ball down a windy mountain road. It surprises a couple of people by picking up speed, then misses a turn and goes hurtling off into space

The next 4 games will show us where our vikings are and where they will be going.These 4 games are either make or break for us,and i for one am hoping several problems are addressed during the bye week.First of all, Chili has to allow A.D. to run the ball as much as possible!Then,our Offensive Line must pass block better-no Q.B.will be successful unless our FAT A## TACKLES block better!!!I believe #4 will find his rythm,but he needs better protection!Next-GET JOE WEBB ON THE FIELD CHILI!!!!Play calling must improve,and for gods sakes Chili-open up a bag of tricks on occasion!!!!Percy Harvin is a lethal weapon!!!! I believe our defense will be dominant as each game goes by,keeping teams out of the end zone while possibly allowing alot of yards in between.All that matters is points allowed.If your beast of a running back gains 90 yards in the first half keep pounding him on the ground!!!!We would be 3-0 if you woulda stuck with what was workin in those games we lost.Im confident an N.F.L. HEAD COACH will be able to straighten us out and get us on the road to a championship-but Im not sure its Brad Childress!

chicago and greenbays lack of a running game is already showing its ugly head .

jay cuttler 9 sacks already at half time, erin rodgers lack of a run game barely beating the lions.

the vikes dominated the lions more than the bears or pack did. soooooooo .
