The Vikes are ahead of the Saints in every category as a team." Paraphrased by me of course, but essentially what he said. Is their a rule, that who ever sits in that chair HAS to be a moronic douche? Unbelievable. What game did he watch last night?
Bro I saw that moron today too. I was thinking, yeah the Vikes are a very very good team, but come on man- who the hell have they played? Seriously Green Bay and Pitt, and they lost to pitt. They beat up on the frigan bears- who actually would have kept it closer had they not had so many turnovers

Re: First Take....

EXACTLY!!! Who have they played, and beaten, that is better than any team we have beaten? No body. So why are they "the better team"?

And not that they are not a great team, cause I think minny is tough to beat, but I do not think in our moment you crown another team.

Oh and to that douche:

WE DID THIS WITHOUT TWO STARTING CB's!!!!!!

We beat the Vikings then we are better than them.

Thats why you guys shouldn't care what they say its all talk anyways. Same freaks put out mind numbing power rankings. It all doesn't matter except the final score.

RB was vikes
D line Vikes
O line Vikes
ST vikes

I don't think they rated or mentioned any category that we would win such as QB and O and even over all D or secondary.
this is the point that he was making

he said they are the better team.....but what i think he actually meant was that they have better individual players

he said you look at DE, Dline, RB, WR, etc etc and you have to put the vikings players above the saints

jarred allen is the best DE in the league right now and he is better than grant or smith in my eyes too

pat williams and kevin williams are 2 of the best DTs in the league and they play right next to each other on the same team........ellis is good but hes not williams good

AP is better than any one of our RBs....i think our combo is better than AP alone but w/e....he gets paid to think for a reason

he said that sydney rice and percy harvin are better than our receivers and that brett favre makes them better

i wasnt a fan of his analysis but thats ok because our TEAM is better

their players may be better but they dont field the better overall team

plus DREW BREES

Re: First Take....

That's my point though. The Vikings have great players, but our depth, is way better than theirs. Every week, we have tds going to 3 or 5 different players. You never know who is going to have the big game, whereas, the Vikings, it's pretty easy to pinpoint their key players, and key on them. Stop Peterson, Rice, and Barrian. I mean, we shut down two of the top five receivers in the league last night in Moss, and Welker. Now why can't we do that to the Vikes? Not to mention, shutting down Brady! Three superbowl rings, as opposed to Favre's one. I'm sorry, I just think that most of these analysts, have Favre stars in their eyes, when it comes to the vikings, and they arent looking at it from a football perspective.

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....

I don't see why you take what they have to say so personal. It doesn't matter... all that matters is we keep winning and get that win that game they call the Super Bowl. Doesn't matter what anyone has to say right now. Leave it on the field and the rest will take care of itself.

Depth is over-rated also. Its all realitve, who ever is in the game has to make plays period. Brees gets hurt we'll see how is talking depth then.

Re: First Take....

Well that doesn't make any sense. Why not just go sign a bunch of Joe Blows off the street as our backups.
