Vikings Respect?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I've only seen Jeff Chadiha pick the Vikings. Sadly, I think the media sees you guys as a feel good story AND a talented team. I've heard only about how Favre is too old, the line is questionable, the secondary...etc. ...

Vikings Respect?

I've only seen Jeff Chadiha pick the Vikings. Sadly, I think the media sees you guys as a feel good story AND a talented team. I've heard only about how Favre is too old, the line is questionable, the secondary...etc. same stuff. So if anyone has proof of the Vikings being exalted, link it up!

Re: Vikings Respect?

Just wait. You'll get your pilers on later in the week. I expect at LEAST 40% of the talking heads will pick the Vikings. It would be 3/4s if it were in Minnesota.

After all...

We just beat a team with a bad defense, got a lucky game from Bush, can't win two playoff games in a row, lost our last 3 regular season games, are a small market team, lost to the Vikings before, etc.


It will be a good game - both teams are very good as they proved almost all season long...

Re: Vikings Respect?

We must be on completely different planets.

Most of the ESPN "experts" are already crowning Minnesota the victors.

Huh...

Re: Vikings Respect?

I lost count last week of the number of "experts" that said the winner of the Vikings-Cowboys game would be the NFC Champ before we even played a down vs the Cardinals.

Re: Vikings Respect?

Must be, cuz I go to ESPN's NFL page and Jets-Colts are the lead story. Then title game previews and keys for the Saints. Plus Schefter, Schlereth and Dilfer offering to drive the Saints to the airport.

It really is like opposite world over here lmao on the board I regularly post on we're all talking about the same stuff you guys are- just switch the teams for the context.

That was Dilfer, he was ALL OVER "America's Bandwagon" so when he said the "winner" he didnt mean "vikings" at all but he said the Cowboys would blow out the Vikings...

Re: Vikings Respect?

All I have seen here in Cali is analysts talking about Favre, Rice, and the Mullet. Maybe ESPN is regional, no?
