I believe this growing injury report is part of the game plan. It just sounds too ho-hum...I think its a great approach if the saints are buying it and if not I'm quite sure are starting fearsome four will be breathing their hogs breath in the face of that offensive line and Drew Brees the first play of regulation looking for a encore performance of last weeks sack fest...Like Herm Edwards said this week...There has to be bones poppen out of your skin to keep you from playing in a championship game...There all gonna play..."come on man"

What good is a premier player if he can't play in games? Harvin has the potential to be a star but if he continues to be unreliable because of the migranes which I am sure are no fun to deal with, they better start looking for his replacement. This is professional sports and any other profession if you don't go to work they only pay you for so long. That may sound cruel but it is reality. Is it getting near that time? Too bad because he has worked through other personal problems in his career as short as it appears it may be. Just how long do you go with this situation before you have to make a decision? His value to the team continues to drop with each incident. It kind of reminds me of Gaborick for the Wild.

What a sight, I bet the Vikings are going to scare the hell out of the Saints, can anyone imagine what it will look like when the Vikings come marching into New Orleans, well not exactly marching more like hobbling, wobbling and limping, people will get the impression they are just returning from the civil war with; heads bandaged, knees, elbows and ankles wrapped, backs braced, there is something missing however and that would be to have someone marching along Side of them blowing a flute. Oh yeah, and they will need more wheel chairs and crutches upon their arrival.

Joe, I hear ya, but the total production we've gotten out of Percy this season more than justifies patience in this situation now. Despite his debilitating migraines, wasn't he named the NFC offensive ROY? I feel awful for this young man. The team will miss him, but given that it is pro football, another will have to rise to the occasion. Same for the D-line. I expect just that!

Defensively, if Ray Edwards isn't 100% and plays, it will be a mistake. Brian Robison at full speed isn't a drop, but Edwards at 80% would be. Also, Jimmy Kennedy is a more than average backup tackle...use him to spell the Williams wall. Sapp would be the difficult replacement, as Winfield is still hobbled.

Offensively, without Harvin, others will step up....best to have him in there, but Favre and company will score points.

It would be nice to have Percy go out there and show up pompous Bush on the returns.

This is where the Vikngs are at an advantage and can really use their franchise's experience . Since they already know that somehow , someway , they will find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory , they can start making excuses BEFORE the game ! They will not have their stalwarts of "refs robbed us" and "they have more money" on Injured Reserve , they will be ready to go ! However , when you see a choke of this magnitude comming on you must be prepared ! Vikes haven't been to a bowl since 76 , if they get there they would sure be sad if they had not laid the groundwork and gotten their excuses pepared in advance !!

The Vikings will field the team that gives them the best chance to win. If Robison is the better option, then I fully expect him to take the position.
Do you think the coaches would play it any other way?
I too like Kennedy, but he hasn't proven to be an every down player, just like P. Williams.
We need Harvin IMO.

It's my belief game planning (coaching and preparing from review of opponents game film) is nearly as big a part of winning as physical match-ups and quality of play; particularly when those other elements are close. New Orleans got plenty out of watching game film from the Vikings' defense dominating the Cowboys' offensive front line. This game is going to be won in the trenches. They match up pretty much everywhere and that's where it's going to make a real difference. If the Vikings' can do to Brees what they did to Romo, then it will be on to the SB.

These injuries hopefully aren't as bad as the reports suggest, but the questions about who New Orleans will be facing could be making it much harder for New Orleans to prepare and hopefully the Vikings have more twists and stunts up their sleeves and/or simply outplay New Orleans to get to Brees.

Go Vikings!

This Harvin migraine crap is getting old.
Why has this team not spent the money and brought in the best doctors in the world to solve this?
Horse sh*t timing here on this.

Everyone will go 100% like Greenway said. This is to get to play for it all. Limit mistakes, and have a defensive game plan that confuses Brees and the Vikings will be on their way to Miami. All this injury stuff is irrelevant. Even if the guys on the DL couldn't play, which is unlikely, the Vikings have Robison, Kennedy and Evans. Those guys would start for the Saints. Harvin is really the only concern. That being said, Rice, Berrian, Shiancoe, Taylor, Peterson and even Greg Lewis who has been seen limited action can carry the load. Look for a heavy dose of AP against an at best average NO DL. If Favre has time to throw, He will find someone open and do heavy damage to the NO secondary no matter how good Sharper THINKS they are. Regarding Sharper, Favre practiced against the guy for years and played against him for years and knows his weaknesses as witnessed when he picked him apart when Sharper was a Viking. No difference here. Advantage Favre. Hopefully Harvin can play and really mix up NO's defense.

Sounds like typical head coach gamesmanship to me. If I remember right Brady has been on the inured list for his entire carrer with the Pats.

They brought him to the Mayo Clinic for heavens sake. That is the best doctors in the world. Have you ever had a migraine? Serious problem that pops up without warning. No one know what causes them. I repeat, NO ONE! Just be glad if you have never experience one. There is no timing. It sucks he is having problems now because they seemed to have gotten it under control. Unfortunately there is no real control. Say a prayer for Harvin rather than ripping on the young man. A lot of people grow out of them. Let's hope that happens in his case in the near future.

Trade Harvin to Buffalo for their #1 pick!!! He's useless to us if he can't go in big games.
