there are many more efficient passers in NFL history regardless of their pass attempts.....brett favre has never been overly accurate and is known as a "gun slinger" which is pretty much summed up as throwin the ball all over the field with little regard for how the ball ends up

he'll put the ball into play regardless of whether its a smart decision or not and because its a gamble, it has resulted in both good and bad turnouts

however, that is not the recipe for success when the game is on the line......you want to have a smart QB making smart decisions rather than a "gun slinger" putting the ball into play just for the sake of getting the ball downfield

Re: Vikings Message Board....

ive been thinking about a potential SAINTS/VIKES matchup..here are my thoughts for what they r worth..

the williams boys vs nicks/goodwin/evans....we win
bushrod/streif vs jarrod allen...allen is scary good and i believe reggie is gonna make him keep containment with the threat of the screen..
our ability to stop(slow down) AP is the key to a saints win

Re: Vikings Message Board....

The only teams the Vikings have played, that are play off worthy this year, are Pitt, who they lost too, Baltimore, who they beat by two points, and Green Bay. Look at the rest of their schedule, and I challenge you to find me a team, besides Green Bay, that have a top ten offense, or offensive line. Cleveland, St. louis, Seattle, Detroit (twice), Chicago (who are dreadful this year) Seven out of their 10 wins are against below .500 teams, and none are "known" for their offensive lines mind you.

We are playing the NFC East, and the AFC East, which I believe both of those divisions, overall are better than the NFC West, and the AFC North. Pittsburgh or not. Statistically, I know they are better.

Are the Vikings a good team, yes, but if you compare strength of schedule, to the fact that we have THE NUMBER ONE OFFENSE IN THE LEAGUE, then the idea that they are better than us, really makes no sense to me, and shouldn't to anyone else. Look at the schedules, and compare the teams played, the scores, and the overall stats, and see if you don't agree.

i totally agree but i didnt want to use strength of schedule thing cause you can only play who you are scheduled to play

I think the Cards game tonight was an example of how this Saints Team will handle the Vikes!
