NFL Picks Against the Spread Week 1: Chargers Outrageously Overrated vs Vikings

Full story: BleacherReport

Another big concern is stopping Adrian Peterson . One of the most consistent backs in the league ran for an NFL record 296 yards the last time he met the Chargers.

<quoted text>Dude, it's fine to be a homer, but how can you make that claim in the first sentence? This game we have 3 new startes from last year & the new NT admits Phat was bigger & faster than him. We also have a new starter at safety & a new starter at W olb. Vikes were so impressed with Erin henderson they attempted to switch Griffen to olb before picking up two guys who got released. Doesn't seem like a vote of confidence. I think you must base your speed comment on Robison. Robison started as a rookie, which prompted the vikings to draft edwards.
But your second statement, yes, if rivers is sacked & pressured every play & can never roll out, vikes will probably win. You get the captain obvious award. Congrats! But maybe you should check who the Chargers have playing LT. Allen's gonna have to break his 3 year trwend against elite LT's for him to have any relevance this game.(he had a great camp, so i am hopeful on that)
I am going on what I seen the Chargers defense do in this preseason They starters stop no one. If I seen them play like last year I would say the Vikes have No chance But from what I have seen this year there not insink like they was last year . Malcom Floyed left the field in the Cowboy preseason game With a concussion He isnt at the top of his game, Rivers to Gates is the one to stop in this game. I am a Vike fan true I do know the Chargers mite be ripe for the picking. Also the Vikings didnt open up there defense in preseason you only seen a piece of it Same with the new offense. Go Vikings

So, the vikings didn't show all, but the chargers did & they suck? Look, i'd love for the vikings to win. I dispise Norv Turner & their GM, Smith. But I wouldn't bet money on it. I'll chear & drink beer & have a good time watching the vikings battle & hope for Lake Placid (lol). Anyway, San Diego's Vincent Jackson is looking great & yes, the vikes usually have problems with TE's. The Chargers disappointed last year by missing the playoffs, so we'll see what they are made of tommorrow. I hope you are right & they are made of crap - just don't bet your house payment on the vikings playing a non-conference team on the road well. That is the biggest home field advantage there is, since the team is unfamiliar with the venue & opponent. The advantage lasts the first quarter, statistically, i believe (5 points or so). Vikings were this week's biggest underdog at 9 points last i checked. Go purple!

I didnt say the Chargers suck I said there defense isnt up to par & there not. I think the Vikes have a good chance to win sunday Everyone said about the Vikes last year That the defense was to old & slow to win Now this year they are saying there are to many young guys starting lol. These young guys are faster then fat Pat Williams that was to old & I dont think that the Vikes will miss Edwards. On offense the Vikes lost Rice to the Seahawks Who cares Rice is off the field as much as he was on it & now he is hurt for the Seahawks game sunday Big surprise right? The Vikes wont miss Rice as most as people think. The Chargers dont have anything new to show. The Chargers have the same offensive & defensive scheme that they had for the last four years, Not a thing added. The Chargers lost in the playoffs & has something to prove you say Well You dont think the Vikings do I think having a new offensive coach & LB coach & wanting a good showing for new coach Frazier Frist starting season I would say The Vikings have a little more to prove. Go Vikings

Memo to Vikings Fans.....Don't play McIncomplete...It leads to a nasty hangover and wierd dreams. In this dream Cutler had a good game against the #1 seed in the NFC last year and the Bears defense played solid. But the wierdest part of the dream came from the Chargers Queens game because I was absolutely convinced the queens were going undefeated, yet they lost! The McIncomplete game has an accelerator in it, that is if McNabb's first pass attempt gets picked off, then you have to drink 3 shots for each incompletion for the whole game
