The fact that he has not thrown an int. yet simply means that he is due to, he eventually will and with the pressure we will put on him as well as the crowd noise factoring in he is probably gonna do it Monday nite.

I guess using your rational, the fact that you haven't lost a game yet simply means that you are due to.

Jared is a very touchy, feely person. It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to know he'll be sharing his heart with Sharon Rodgers.

this game will be decided by turnovers. both defenses are very tough and both offenses have good weapons. its gonna come down to the vikings scoring points on defense to get this win. oh, and AD scoring 3 touchdowns is gonna help quite a bit. vikes secondary is going to have their work cut out for them and itll be interesting to see how they perform. vikes by 17

hey 'Brett Favre'
exactly how long did it take you to get that 'letter' perfect? oh, clever name with yer little aaron rodgers nickname, bitch. also i was wondering how many super bowls the vikings have won? oh yeah 0-for-4. haha. win 2 and you can start to talk let alone one.
talk about bandwagon fans in minnesota. 32nd in revenue last year, as division champs, and that sad excuse for a stadium will most likely sellout all 8 home games this year.
keep wearin purple and chokin on some d***

First -- didn't take long at all to come up with that nickname. About 2 seconds, actually. A lot less time than in takes for anybody in the entire state of Wisconsin to come up with something clever. We Minnesotans are just plain smarter than you are.

Second -- the Vikings have won just as many Super Bowls as the current Packers team has. Not one player or assistant coach left from the last Packers team that mattered, so I see no difference. What matters is TODAY-- and today, the Vikings are clearly the SUPERior team.

Third -- Revenue has nothing to do with fan support or bandwagon jumpers. It has to do with the simple fact that they have been sharing their stadium with a MLB team, a Big 10 football team, frequent major concerts and other events, as well as sharing their fans with other non-Metrodome activities like Timberwolves games at the Target Center, and Wild games at the Xcel. But you guys wouldn't understand any of that. All you have is the Packers. In any case, the Vikings consistent sellouts despite all those competing interests say all you need to know about Vikings fans.

Fourth - I will keep wearing purple. I'll let your mother handle the choking-on-dick part. Preferably mine, she always does such a great job. The only question is, will I wear my Adrian 'Best back in the NFL' jersey, or my brand new BRETT FAVRE jersey?!?

Tough choices...

Hey Einstein, sometimes certain posts are covered on the Packers forum as well as the Vikings forum. Such is the case in this thread. Guess you really know how to show Your lack of intelligence. Steve Young or Troy Aikman could have come back and done for you what Brent has done in the first three games. Go back to your bong.

The fact this team might get moved isn't do to the fact their is no fan support, that comment about Minnesota being smarter sure failed the test on that one. There are numerous and I mean NUMEROUS cities who share their stadium like the Vikings do, that is the weakest excuse I have heard yet. The fact you bring up they have to share their fans with the Timberwolves and the Wild is proof that Viking fans are bandwagonjumpers. The NFL is superior to any other sport by a mile, to say there is competition with other fans in Minneapolis is moronic. Please read this two or three times before you reply, I know you won't understand it completely the first time. I think those slot machines are ringing too loud in your ear.

please tell me youre not foolish enough to believe the last sentence of that post. the bong part everyone should do but you have lost any credibility if you believe that nonsense. im sure you were just being ugly bcuz everyone knows it would take either of those 2 qbs mentioned about 2 years of hard work just to get into good enough shape to be the jockstrap washer for this team. this brent fellow is doing just fine and the vikes are lucky to have him. cant help the packers were dumb enough to let him go. id wanna retire every year if i played for a team like the packers too

BTW, the reason they sell out sometimes is because FOX or CBS buys out the remaining cost to air an NFL game, there are many facts that back up that statement. The NFL can't afford to face FOX and CBS forking out money to air their teams, the NFL doesn't want to lose those contracts, they are worth billions. I am done with you, I know you'll come up with some derogatory statement that has no facts to back it up. Hopefully I hope I opened your eyes to reality a little, I don't want the Vikings to leave, I love watching those matchups with GB every year, I'll miss runnin smack on my friends, it is truly sad, I don't know too many Bears or Lions fans around here.

"The fact you bring up they have to share their fans with the Timberwolves and the Wild is proof that Viking fans are bandwagonjumpers."

umm do i really have to state how far off this statement is from anything sensical. plz dont generalize vikings fans due to one persons opinion. i dont care about the twolves or the wild but that doesnt mean squat when it comes to the vikings. there will always be bangwagon fans for any team when a superstar like adrian peterson comes along or a BF comes to play but thats only a bonus for the real fans who have endured many good and bad seasons. people take this crap too seriously. i think ive been to minneapolis only 3-4 times in my life but ive been a viking fan for about 30 years so what does any of it matter. if people want to join in the excitement of a winning team so be it. thats what its all about

I know there are good fans, but you have to do a reality check on some. I was just stating facts about why Vikings fans will lose their team. Let's be honest, it's no fan support, the same thing is happening in Jacksonville and San Diego. It is too bad for real Viking fans, they have been a staple in Minnesota for a very long time. The team flat out needs to win a Superbowl to have a chance of staying in Minnesota, it comes down to fan support. Why do you think the Twins are so popular? They have 2 championships. There is no reason the MLB should be even close in competition to the NFL in Minneapolis. Amazing how the Twins and Wild got a new stadium, but not the Vikings? Kind of strange, isn't it? Baseball and Hockey are just more popular in Minnesota.
