Your so right, Can you see the slide starting .........lol VIKINGS HO!

I prefer the Packers running the ball well,then you have to respect the run and that give Rodgers or makes Rodgers job easier all around.Much easier to pass when your WR are singled instead of doubled and Running extends drives
respect the run? The packers? How's that working? Injury prone lacy with his -5 yards? Respect what?

Seriously, do you enjoy showing the world that your parents raised and imbecile?

Did you also accurately predict that the Vikings would finish behind the Packers for many years now? The analysts, experts, prognosticators and bettors have accurately been doing that for years! ROFLMAO

BTW during the regular season you will see what a good QB can do, unless you waste your time watching the Viking games.

It's funny how Viking Nation, the "new" guy that shouldn't be so famliar with any of us, keeps on revealing stuff that ezg was notorious for complaining about. I find it hilarious that when he gets upset he completely forgets to act like a newcomer to the site. The idiot isn't even clever enough to attack valor stealing. Wouldn't a CLEVER sleazebag that got caught lying about being a war hero come out against the actions that forced him to take a new identity? His stupidity is an embarrassment to all of humanity!

Rogers will be distracted from his divorce with his disgraced baseball boyfriend. Vikes got no QB and the drugs will soon waste that overrated fumbler known as AP. Detroit is on their way to hiring the ND coach after battling the Eagles for the number one pick. Bears win by default with a 10-6 mark.

You did see Seattle put Lacy in his place tonight, huh Jaws?
8 carries for -5 yards
That's over half a yard loss average on every carry.
To a team destitute of a running game, one may be overjoyed with those numbers. Maybe Vince Young should switch to RB, he outshined anyone at that position.
Seattle also had 14 penalties for 182 yards......and still won. GB had 19 more net yards on offense than Seattle gave up in penalties........give it to Lacy and watch the defenders 'bounce' off of him. LOLOLOL
Either you want to ’try’ to be annoying or you have the thought process of ezg. Either way I won’t bite on the preseason nonsense. Rodgers played 1 series and had 3pts. Lacy played later with the backups today.

But if you want to comment about the Packers….. how about shutting down the SEA offense huh? Wilson played the whole first half and managed 3 pts. Nice!

Viking fans can say what they will, they can talk all the poop they want, we all know how they truly feel.
It is very simple and very easy for them to BACK UP all there big talk. They have been defending offseason champs for the past 30 yrs.
I will give all of you viking fans a chance to prove you truly believe what you spew.
Here is the bet.
-Packers win the NFC North you leave topix forever
-Vikings win the NFC North I leave topix forever.
Simple and fair.
You all know I am willing to back up my talk. Are any of you?

I was talking to 'Jaws' through you, as you seem to be his media outlet.
I had nothing to say about 'Rodgers' or that stout packer defense.
I believe Jaws also was talking about 'Lacy'.
Do you see any more contribution from your run blocking/running game this year based on evidence, or do you just want to 'believe' it is better?
I won't bite on heresay

There is nothing wrong with him. I want the Packers to keep it that way, especially while they are in the process of fixing an offensive line.

Can they make it more obvious? The envy oozes from them. A fan that believes in their team doesn't need to desperately and pathetically hope for another team's failure. AND any fan that truly believes in his own team certainly would be willing to bet on the team. Many Viking fans have become accustomed to a loser's attitude. So much so, they can't even recognize it no matter how obvious.

Spoken like a true Bears fan. Bear fans even have a way of making optimism seem pathetic and sad. I've never heard a Packer fan hope for the Packers to win "by default" and I hope I never do.

The Minnesota Vikings were one of the biggest surprises in the league in 2012. Despite being picked by almost everyone to finish last in the NFC North division, they managed to win ten games and finish second, which was good enough to get them in the playoffs. They would win each of their final four games of the regular season, including victories over the Bears, Texans and Packers.

Minnesota Vikings: A-

The Minnesota Vikings made a big splash in the 2013 NFL draft by selecting three first-round picks.

So far, those first-round picks are off to strong starts.

Defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd has been coming off the bench, but his plus-4.9 overall rating through two games makes him Pro Football Focus’ third-best defensive tackle this preseason.

Cornerback Xavier Rhodes created a turnover versus the Buffalo Bills. Showing his press-coverage ability, he was able to lock in Marquise Goodwin on a seven-yard comeback, then tip a pass into the air to create an interception.

Wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson is also looking like a playmaker early on. He leads the Vikings with six receptions for 73 yards thus far this preseason, and he also has a 50-yard kickoff return.

Another player who stood out versus the Bills on Friday was punter Jeff Locke. The fifth-round pick averaged 48.9 yards per punt in that contest while pinning three of his punts inside the six-yard line.

Green Bay Packers: C+

Unfortunately for the Green Bay Packers, first-round pick defensive end Datone Jones only played one snap this preseason prior to suffering an ankle injury, which hurts their overall grade on the report card.

Some of the rookies who have been able to play, however, have shown promise this preseason.

Eddie Lacy has only received eight carries, but he's gained an average of five yards per carry.

His rookie running back counterpart, Johnathan Franklin, has struggled. The fourth-round pick has only gained 23 yards on nine carries thus far. Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel wrote that Franklin “can’t get out of neutral,” and an anonymous NFL personnel man told McGinn that Franklin is "not a real impressive guy."

There may not be any Packers rookie facing greater pressure than left tackle David Bakhtiari, who is expected to start immediately in place of injured veteran Bryan Bulaga. Most importantly, he has been solid in pass protection with a plus-1.7 grade in that area from Pro Football Focus, although he did allow a sack versus the St. Louis Rams.

The standout rookie for the Packers thus far, however, has been fifth-round pick cornerback Micah Hyde.

Filling in for Casey Hayward as the slot cornerback versus the Rams, Hyde showed playmaking ability as he racked up a sack, two tackles for loss and two pass breakups, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. He could make an immediate impact as the Packers’ dime defensive back.

I just dont see how you can claim that youre team is better than everyone elses when everyone can see the team is in shambles.Youre playing rookies behind the rookies.A team of seventh round and undrafted players with a good quarterback.Two of youre recievers are already beat up and we havent even started.And theres nobody behind them.Boykin looked like crap last night.You cant keep the starters on the field so I sure dont whos gonna be in the rotation.I have a feeling when the cuts come from other teams the Packers will be in a signing frenzy.

Surprises come in two varieties. Don't be surprised if the Vikings surprise again! But given their low ranking, I guess they would really need to tank it this season to be considered a "surprise."
