I just can't get enough of my Vikes!! It gives me goosebumps when these people draw parallels to the Panthers defense last year! I only hope we're as good (hopefully better)!!!

Good article! John Clayton is a very good reporter.

I agree especially with the statement, The Green Bay Packers aren't going to give anything to the Vikings. If the Vikings win anything the'll have to do it through Green Bay Wisconsin. If Mike Tice can form this group of individuals into a TEAM he will have achieved something. I don't see it my respect must be earned. No matter what the Vikings are owned by Red McCombs, he doesn't deserve anything.

I Say, Bring it on!

Tex you're a retard. The press has had a orgamsic crap fest for farve forever. That's the only reason the pack is mentioned. I don't see the pack having a good year. D is down graded. O is no better and Sherm is an idiot. they are stragled on the cap for years unless Brett retires. Now don;t take this like the rest of the guys here that hate the pack. I don't. I love the the NFC North. I will root for the pack on any day it doesn;t effect the vikes. But the optomisim for the pack this year is completely manufactured. It's not based on anything substantial.

Okay, I ...whoops. Ummmm... Sorry, guys, I totally lost the flow of the conversation there, as I was focusing way too hard on "orgasmic crap fest". It's quite a visual.

Who gives a crap right now about the packer games! It's 3 months from now. Did it ever occur there are 14 other games other than those two we need to worry about. The point is we cant be worrying about what GB does. I mean who cares about them. I only care about the vikes and if they win it makes my day but yes GB losing to us is awesome!!! We need to worry about da boys off hand and hope the rest of the division loses while we win!

I know I give a crap about the Vikes at Puckers, cause I got tix,
and I'm hoping we pull one out there.

Can be done. Did it last yr., so you know their gonna want to repay us,
if they can.

By then though, we should have a nice Div. lead! :thumbright:

Color me PUMPED & POSITIVE! :cheers:

Man I can't wait till the season begins!! I am so expectantly waiting to see our Defense play. Yesterday coach Tice mentioned that there looking at getting Bennet the ball more on pass plays cos if he can break a tackle or two he can go all the way. I think that's VERY smart!!!

Hey, does anyone know if they are showing the Viking/Card pre-season game in Superior, WI? My sister-in-law lives there and has been contracted with taping all the Viking games and sending them to me (I live in Chicago). I'm hoping they show the Vikes pre-season games there cos then I don't have to wait another month to see some purple action!! They do show the regular season games over there.

The NFL network is showing all of the preseason games, most of them on tape delay. If neither you nor your sister-in-law gets that channel, find someone else who does. (the broadcast schedule is linked above)

I SERIOUSLY contemplated buying those packages to the 24th game. I decided no. The other day, I got told by a packer fan at the counter..."yeah, well, that won't be a good game, ...remember the Packers/Denver game last year?" Wow, one of us is likely to be there already, the other gets to play the 2nd and 3rd string. Sweep? I hope we don't need to. =D. Clayton is awesome, this season really, really needs to start, before I go crazy.

I do not.

They will blitz the crap out of Daunte. McNabb is most dangerous when flushed from the pocket. T.O. will be gaming.

That will be, without a doubt, our toughest game of the year. It is good that it is on monday night. Moss has his best games on national TV. It will be a close game. Much tougher than the cowgirls in week one.

Its definately going to be a game where my heart is going to be in danger. (I think I take games way too seriously) but I believe that as long as we can contain their offense we should be able to win the game. I'm not worried overly much about their D.
