Packers win and the vikings win

To be honest I thought this win by the vikings was the least impressive thus far, but the bottom line is they won and teams will not always have their a game all the time.

As impressive as the packers victories were the feat is diminished some because of who they played and when they played them. In my opinion the Packers still have one of the WORST defenses in the league and will be forced to try to outscore the better teams in this league.

Finally

Even without Moss the viking offense is pretty good and with him they are almost unstoppable.
The packers may have a shot at the playoffs but as far as catching the vikings it certainly appears like I have a better chance at winning the powerball.

ps I am not a believer in your defense at all but it looks better than greenbays at this point........

go pack.....................talk to u purple guys later

I think we at pp.org, the media and you Packerguy(and most of the other packer fans) are too fickle. Just because a team goes 6-0 doesn't mean they are in the Playoffs automatically. You have to play the rest of the season. I think the Pack was written off last year and they made the playoffs.

I am not counting anyone out. The Chiefs will set some record and make the Playoffs this year. They improved their play on both sides of the ball. If you don't bring your A game every week you will get beat in this league.

I for one am a believer in the Vikes this year to make the playoffs but I will not be counting my chickens just yet. The Vike have some tough games coming up and they will have to bring it on both sides of the ball or get beat.

We need Moss back healthy to make it a little easier for us down the stretch.

How was it the least impressive? It wasnt a stellar offensive performance, but the defense made 3 ints and a forced a fumble and got it. We won by 17 points. Maybe its not the conventional way of winning for the Vikes, but impressive in my eyes none the less. I guess you have to be a Vike fan to appreciate a near shutout!

I think by "least impressive" he means we didnt score 12 touchdowns and have Culpepper and Moss break 15 records! lol

Now that was impressive :tongue:

Our D stepped up, regardless if it was against a second string QB, and we still stopped Titans run game along with their passing game.
Take out J Walker and see how explosive the Pack is...
I'll never count the Pack out, yesterdays victory was impressive, altho the final score was similar to what the Vikes did against the cowgirls :wink:

i will see how we are after this three game stand, Home for the G-men then away in Indy and away at Lambeau, if we can go 2-1 or maybe 3-0 then we can start to feel good but 5-1 only means you cant finish with 4 wins, nothing more

I found this vikings performance the least impressive because Steve Mcnair did not play and the titans and Volek continually kicked themselves in the a$$ all day. I mean that pick in the endzone was the worst pass I have seen since favres lolly pop in the playoffs last year against the eagles.

Like I said, A win is still is a win and ateam may not always do it flashy so I give the vikings credit.

Right now the Eagles and Vikes appear to be the two best in the NFC. With that being said I dont think either is unbeatable, but I dont think my Packers have the defense to win against u guys unless they surprise me.

In any case I will look forward to the game and come back here win or lose to talk some football

I would say the least impressive game was againts the Texans. Sure the offense kicked a$$! But the defense totally nullified that kick a$$ performance with shitty play.

I think the Titans game was pretty impressive. It shows that our Defense can also have just as big games as our Offense does. We are becoming more of a team of two dimensions as opposed to the one dimensional offensive team.

I think the win against the Titans was pretty good, though I think it proved even more how dependant the Titans are on McNair to keep them going. You guys lost Moss but were still able to make things happen.

This is because, on offense, you have talent all around, and right now, you have a synergy going on (something that was absent in the Packers in their first 5 games, and something that was absent in your last 5 games last season).

Every team is great when they win. Its what happens when you lose that truly shows their character.

And, yes, while I won't predict a win, I'm looking VERY forward to the Minn/GB matchup in three weeks.

Not only that but your team will be very prepared for us as for the second time in a row the schedule makers, which are looking more like packer fans have a bye right before you play us. Whats even worse is we get a short week to prepare and heal as we have the monday nighter. I see the packers being favored heavily in this game and illl be amazed if we can overcome all of this and eek out a win at lamebeau.

If we do, i think its cuz are d stepped up again and are finally plaing consistent defense.

I think we will be prepared for the pack just like we were last year. We can't make excuses like, "the schedule makers have it out for us, or we got a short week to prepare and they had two weeks off, blah, blah, blah. Who cares. If we play our game we should win. If we beat Indy (which I think will be very tough) we could have a lot of momentum going into that game! Having the week off GB won't have hit an opponent for a while and maybe we can get some stuff done against them. It should be a great game and I can't wait to be there!!

Preparing for a team and executing are great, the only thing that can go wrong...the opponent prepared also. When this doesn't work...you got to have heart...Cincinatti showed that on Monday night.

No i think it matters big time. They have two weeks to prepare and see what we do and have plenty of time to learn our tendacies, etc. Ive seen the same post in which you just wrote from vikeman and we lost last years game. IM telling you the packers could make our d look like the swiss chesse out there with extra time to prepare. The week also lets their injured guys prepare even though they havent hit someone in awhile.


Its bad already that we have a short week to prepare and dont have nearly as 1/2 as much time as they do. I tell you everything works in their favor.

I guess I don't know. I think the bye week is great for resting and getting prepared, but let's say the pack loses this weekend, then they sit and dwell on it. That could be bad for them. I guess it's hard to tell either way. It's all subjective! The only thing that will hurt us will be if we have any injuries from that Monday nighter!
