He's no Michael Thomas that's for damn sure. Oh, and they lost to the Panthers so not buying any of their BS hype. They are no better than us right now. Probably worse though because their QB has no playoff experience and is known to blow big games. Reason why he is a backup after being a starter and only a starter by default. He won't be a starter next year after tanking this game because that is what backups do.
Thielen is great. He scares me for sure. Lattimore vs Thielen and Diggs will be fun to watch. I hope we get good pressure on Keenum all day.

I think you are correct - my fear is (for me) that we may pay... for me - all bets are off (for NOLA SAINTS) when facing Minneapolis in the post season.

For Minneapolis fans 2009 was not long ago. Their dome is comparable to ours - the fans will be fired up - it is loud in there - and it will cause problems.

Revenge is sweet only if you don't plan it. They beat us at our house and now it's our turn.

That was a pretty soft schedule which would skew stats in their favor.

+1. The last 4 weeks (except the Panthers), the Vikes D have beaten up on below average offenses. Bears, Packers, Bengals are all at home.

This Saints team will give the Vikings all kind of fits.

Re: Saw this on a Vikings Board message board

It's one of those things where you play the schedule in front of you.

The Vikings are nominally the #1 defense, on paper, but they lost to the Steelers, the Lions and Panthers. Those are all pretty good teams with above-decent-to-very-good offenses and QB's. Then their games against the Falcons, Lions and Redskins were all sorta close, almost nail biters or toss-ups. That list has one really good team and and two sorta half decent teams. Then the Vikes had that first game against the Saints, in which the Saints had a new young defense and a different offensive game plan from now, and the Vikes back then had a different quarterback, a different running back, and I don't think the Saints team overall had really had a chance to gell yet.

So I'm not saying the Vikes D are hot garbage, but I really don't see where the Vikes have played anybody really difficult or tough offensively, this year except for the Steelers, Lions and Panthers, which they lost all three; and the Falcons, which they won but it was a very close game. So I guess we shall see how tough they really are. But Drew has played against tough or stout defenses before, and won. So I feel pretty good about it.

Turns out the Vikings also had a bounty program when Brett Favre was QB | Vikings Wire

Re: Saw this on a Vikings Board message board

The whole league was doing it - and it wasn't a 'bounty'. Roger is an idiot's idiot.
