Thats my biggest concern. We lost to four teams that were 4-12 last year and i pray that changes this year. We need to win these road games like @Houston, and even against the tough teams like Philly and Indy.

Plus we had a problem in preseason, granted it was preseason but we need at least 5 road wins this year.

Especially against crappy teams like the Bears, Lions and Texans. We play the Saints and the redskins on the road and those are the games we need to win but heak i hope we win every road game.

If we can win 5 on the road this year we'll end up 13-3, or 12-4 worst case... barring a collapse at home (unlikely). We've already won our toughest game at home..., closely followed by Seattle, then Green Bay or Tennessee. 7-1 at home is not out of the question.

I figure we'll be 11-5: 8-0 at home and 3-5 on the road (7-1 & 4-4 would do it too).

I figure that we are going to lose 2 at home and if we can win 5 on the road we go 11-5. 12- 4 would be Great if we can go 7-1 at home.

Green bay is not tough at all coming to the dome. Seattle i worry about and Tennessee. Those are games we need to win but i hope we go 8-0 at home and at least 5-3 on the road.

We wont lose at home i hope. It would be great if we went 8-0 at home and win at least 4 or 5 road games.

6-2 at home, 5-3 on the road. 11-5 = playoffs!

Dude what pisses me off is when someone sais we will lose at home. Dont say that damn. We can beat every team at home i think. Im not being cocky just i believe the vikings could beat anyone except the patriots that come to the metrodome. We beat seattle last year and i hope we can beat them this year. Tennessee will be our toughest home game.

I'm just trying to be realistic! You don't have to jump all over me. 6-2 at home is a pretty damn good record. It's not that often that a team goes
8-0 at home. There is maybe one or two teams a year to do that. We have the packers on a Friday afternoon after a short week, when they have a bye the previous week, that will be a tough game. Tennessee will be tough as will Seattle like most people have said. Hell I want us to go 16-0 and march through the playoffs. Do I think we will, no. I don't think any team will. I'm just being realistic, we lost to the Giants at home last year. Teams lose at home and on the road, that's just the way it is!

The Packers is not a tough game at all. We will walk all over them. Tennessee is far better home game for us and we will have to be on top of our game if we want to beat them and seattle. I hope we dont lose at home either heak we need to beat the Giants too. They are starting to annoy me. We better beat them this year.

Even if the packers are down they will be a tough game. Every year those two games are some of the toughest on the schedule.

No it wont. We will kill the packers twice this year. The Seattle game is much tougher than that and so is Tennessee. We need to win those games before we worry about green bay. Heak if your worried about GB VKGforlife you should be worried about the bears. Those two will share the cellar of the NFC North.

Hey, I hope we beat them twice, I'll be at Lambeau on the 14th, but it won't be easy! I don't worry about the bears they have nothing!

I agree. I think you are being a little more realistic by saying that, then the guy saying the pack at home will be easy. I seem to remember hearing that last year, and they came in and beat us. Never think a game is easy, know matter what team you are playing and where it is at. That is why we lost to 4 damn 4-12 teams last year.

I believe we lost to a crappy bears team last year, as well as the pack at home, so there is always reason to worry about loosing, especially after some of the teams we lost to last year.

I remember people saying last year, after we went 6-0, that they didn't see a game, on the remaining schedule, that we would loose. Then look at what happened. You never know in this game. Just because we see a loss or 2 at home, doesn't mean we want it to happen, or that it actually will happen, or that it means our team is bad.

The Packers are going to give us two tough games this year, we can always count on that.

They look good against Carolina. They are getting some serious pressure on Delhomme although the blitz has cost them a few times.
