Vikings better?
 
Watching the Vikings vs. the Bears games, I heard the commentators comparing our saints and the vikings an awful lot. They had good things to say about our team, yet would stress that the vikings are a tad bit better. Stating that the vikings have the run game that the saints dont or saying how balanced the saints are yet the vikings are better because of their run game. theres alot more said but some i could not remember since i watched on and off. what do you guys think? do you find it as disrespect or just a mere comparison?

BS. That's the best description I can give you. Last I checked, we are still the number one rushing offense in the league. So, how the Vikes are better is beyond me. Just remember, if Brett Favre was not on that team, and Sage Rosenfels was starting, they wouldn't be getting as much press as they are.

I know the Vikings are really good and I hate them a ton.

I remember 1987. I also remember 2000.


I think we end up with HFA, but if we don't, I want these guys and want to end their season. Something like 45-10 would be nice...


They are NOT as good of a team as we are.

Only one team can beat the Saints this year and that team is New Orleans...

Adrian Peterson is not the second coming of Sweetness. Not yet at least. He can't beat all three of our backs by himself. End of discussion.

I think the Vikes are really good just like us. Our offense is better. there defense is better(front 4 is unreal). I think whoever is the home team is proably who would win.

Vikings (11 games) = 1262 yards rushing, AP = 999 yds

Saints (10 games) = 1543 yards rushing

It just seems to me that the Vikings have done really well the last few weeks because of very poor defenses. I'm not saying that the Saints didn't play any bad defenses but I will keep a close eye on how well the Vikings play down the stretch.

Starting next week in Arizona if Kurt Warner is back.

Vikings put a butt-whipping on the Cardinals in AZ with Warner playing and the Bengals, then we can be concerned...

Hard to compare apples and oranges like this just because of match ups that are created with these other teams. The Vikings look impressive as do the Colts and the Pats are not far behind. I think we match up fairly well against these teams and do not think anyone is being disrespectful. If things continue to progress as they are we are going to see the Vikings and find out for sure about that team. Only a Superbowl will tell us how we match up against the Colts. Farve looks like he cannot make a mistake anymore. I am praying for some luck here and to get our players healthy for the playoffs. If we can come back full strength and our secondary come together after all the injuries I like our chances. Tomorrow will tell us loads.
