Peterson will take this game over and roll for 175 yards and 3 TD's. The Vikes don't turn the ball over and our defense pounds Brees all night long. Saints turn the ball over twice. Vikes win 34-17.

Vikes/Saints Get first shot at Vested Players
Vikings, Saints will get first crack at unsigned vested veterans
Posted by Mike Florio on September 9, 2010 7:09 AM ET
Every year, a cluster of vested veterans (i.e., players with four or more years of service) are unsigned before Week One because the base salary of every vested veteran who appears on a Week One roster becomes, as a practical matter, guaranteed. After Week One, some of those players are signed, since their base salaries at that point aren't guaranteed.
But the race to sign them doesn't begin when the last game of Week One has concluded. It starts when each team has concluded its first game of the season. This gives the teams that play on Thursday night a head start of more than two-and-a-half days to get those players under contract.
In all fairness, the trigger should be the same for all teams. But two teams won't be complaining about it this year, if they're hoping to sign one or more of those available vested veterans -- the Vikings and the Saints.

The Vikings D will be the key to Victory. Not just turnovers but key stops will be needed tonight. I hope EJ is the difference maker.

THAT, as they say, is why the play the game. Wnners and losers happen on the field. Not in the papers or magazines or blogs.

The window is open more than just a crack. All the "experts" are picking the Saints or the Packers to play in the Super Bowl; they are all in love with Aaron Rodgers and Brees. One or the other will be MVP. Bottomline, this is the kiss of death as these guys are never right!

You sir, are not a Vikings fan. You may want to consider some other venue for your mewling, puking, whining rants. Either get religion again, man up, or GET OUT! Skol Vikings.

If the Saints go after the old man like they did last fall, and you know they will, I want to see ffist flying. I wwaaant to see effn fines levied from blood flowing from noses. I want to see water boys at the 50 yard line duking it out like men. Like LINEMEN DOG GAMIT!

Boys this Quarterback is the best quarterback you will ever have the honor to play for.

He isn't here for the money. He's got that.

He isn't here for the ring. He's got that.

He is here to give you the best chance you are ever going to have to be a DOG GAMN CHAMPION!

Now go out there and when they start talking trash, punch them in the head. If the toss a rock at you, come back with a brick.

If you don't, we might as well call up the MEN from Mankato State. Because we know, if given the opporunity, they would do the right thing.

Maybe he didn't set out to be a role model for the youth of today, but he's managed to be the best one ever. His mom would be proud... And somewhere she is.
