I'm not worried about this game for some reason... Maybe because the vikings have destroyed any soul I had before. I hope my lack of concern for this game is confidence and not just me losing interest in the vikes. Either way, I think we win this with Favre and lose it with Tjack.

This is the second post you spelled lose wrong. I know you are a Packer fan but come on.

Yes it's true that this is the line. Does it mean this is how the score will end up? Well.... take a look at the week 7 line and match it with the final scores. I think you will see some that are close and others that are way off.

I know this will shock some but....

If Favre decides to play hurt and Chilly lets him, we will lose.

If TJ plays I think we have a chance.

I'd have to agree, there is a chance with TJ, but slim albeit

Favre will limp onto the field take the first snap and hand it off to AD. Then limp back off and live to start another game.

I would lose a little respect for the both of them... that would just be so bogus.

Jackson plays. Favre sits.

O-Line stumbles. Secondary staggers.

Pats 35 and Vikings 17.

I see three distinct possibilities here, depending on who starts at QB.

With Jackson, we either lose big and he is terrible (31-16 Pats), or he is decent and we win a close one (31-28 Vikes). The Patriots, much as I dislike them, are still a good team and we will not blow them out unless some really weird poop happens.

If Favre starts (an idiotic move IMO) then you know that Bell and his boys will go after him with everything they have, and probably get to him at least a few times. I am very worried that he would end up hurt even worse, and end his career because of it. That is the last thing I could possibly want. He needs to sit and heal up, for both his own sake and the team's.

In this instance, I see a loss, but a closer one than in the "bad TJ" scenario, something like 28-21 Pats.

In any case, this is the one remaining game that we can really afford to lose if we must. It's a non-Conference game against a perennial winner in their house. The Bears game next week is much more critical to our season.

Let's see- on the road and outside. Against a very good team and a franchise that just keeps putting quality on the field. Against what is turning out to be a MCF of a season for the Vikings. Way too much yakking about the Ankle, the Rift, the Fine, the Refs, the Replay, the Streak, the Return, yadda, yadda, yadda. We get blown out by Brady and the Pats mainly because we won't be able to stop the pass. Just like last time- spread us out and surgically go to work. I hope like hell the Vikings surprise me and pull off the upset, but I ain't feeling it.

I don't see the Bears game as an easy one. They have their own rules down there, and they play rough. They'll hurt Favre if he plays

10-27-2010, 10:57 AM
Defense will keep it close, but we will have to get together on offense..

Think Favre will play, at least to see if he can do it.. and then Tarvaris might come in if he is unable..

27-21 Pats :/

Imagine if he cocks back one of those beautiful deep spirals he's thrown and this time instead of hitting the Wideout's shoulder pads or facemask, we're rejoicing...

I think the glass is half full. Favre starts gets dinged and TJ comes off the bench .... which is what he does best. We will get to see that long spiral to Moss a couple of times and we win this one to everyone's surprise 21-20.

Not feeling good about this one. Would like to see a win but don't think it will happen. Favre starts and plays a series or two and then TJack comes in. Good response but the outcome is 31-24 Pats. Hope I'm wrong.

All remaining games are critical.

If we win only the remaining divisional games that you state "rule" we finish the season 6-10.

I predict that if Brett plays on Sunday and the Vikings lose, this site will go balistic. At some point, (not yet) Chilly will need to write this year off and start preparing for next year. In my opinion that means benching Favre regardless of his health and playing the backups so they get some playing experience.

Of course that is true, I and never said otherwise. The original point was that this Patriots game is the LEAST important of all of our remaining games. If we can afford to lose only one game, this is the one that hurts us the least.

Just because I got my schedule weeks a little mixed up does not mean that I don't consider every game to be important. There is a bit of a hierarchy, though. Divisional games first, then other conference games, then cross-conference last.

Traveling_Vike

Bases on what has happened the past two days, I'm afraid that Favre will play.

Thus my predictions have changed. I now suspect that we'll see more pressing, more mistakes, and quite possibly, an end to Brett's career at the hands of Bill Belly.

Please don't try to characterize this as hate on Favre. It is no such thing, and I very much hope that I am wrong. I worry about his health and his future, and I know the Pats will be gunning for him.

I predict 3 turnovers and another valiant effort in a losing cause. The bright spots will be that Jackson looks decent in relief, and other problem areas continue to improve.

Patriots 34, Vikings 28.
