To me i think their our 2nd biggest rival to the packers. Anyone else feel this way? I mean our board is infested with these guys this week. They wont know what hit them after sunday. They have taken us out 3 out of the last 4 times. Time for some payback! Skol Vikes!

Giants are probably our biggest non-division rivalry. We've played a lot in the playoffs, so we do have something going. Any of you Vikings fans from the late 80s and early 90s probably remember the 49ers and Redskins seemed to be our biggest playoff rivals. I still think of the Bears as a fierce rival, but I'll never get over that because I became a Vikes fan when the Bears were much better.

Another non-division team I see us building a rivalry with is Seattle. This will be our third year playing each other, we're both teams on the rise (although Seattle has been struggling lately) and we would meet again next year if we both win our divisions.

The bears arent even a rival cause they are horrible. I say the Giants are our second biggest rival to the fudge.

Yeah well, the Packers sucked in the 70s and rarely ever beat us but a lot of Vikings fans during that time still considered them a rival.

What about Tampa? Probably not as much now since realignment but they used to be big.

Packers - no explaination
Bears - keep them down, remeber the 80's we don't want to ever hear from them again.
Cowboys - remember the 70's(drew and roger), 80's(?), 90's(thankgiving day baby)
Giants - playoffs
St.Louis - (I hate this team, offensive offense rivals)

I would have included the Raiders but since the expanded NFL, we don't play the AFC as much. Man, the 70's and 80's with the Raiders and all the fights. They were close to 1 or 2 on every team's list. :rr:

I agree that the Giants are rivals and the Seahawks are becoming rivals. The seahawks are a little like the Vikes (loaded on offense decent on defense).

I was really glad when the Bucs got out of the NFC North (they were in our division right?). That was one un-predictable team that had a defense that could contain our offense. It's sad to see that there defense isn't what it used to be though. Oh well, the Vikes still rule!

If we can contain Tiki the game is ours. Warner cannot win a game for the Giants. Warner is a good QB but he's been throwing a lot of picks when under pressure. Since he's not a mobile QB I think we should blitz and put some pressure on him and make him force the turnover.

I would say the Giants are pretty big rivals.

1. Packers
2. Bears
3. Giants
4. Cardinals (have a feeling that they still are mad about them beating us last year.)
5. Rams

Warner has only thrown 2 INTs.....and the one in the end zone against the Lions wasn't due to pressure....it was a terrible throw.....he soft tossed it instead of putting a little mustard on it and gave time for the defense to recover and make the pick....
However I do agree.....if your "D" can shut down Tiki for the game then the game should be yours...the one thing you have to watch with Tiki is he may not look like he's having a great game at times and then he'll break off a long run or reception....so you can't relax if it looks like he's being held down....

If he isn't pressured out of the pocket he would have a better throw, that is the arguement. He is not an out of the pocket passer. He wasn't set to throw.

Oh yeah, the giants and theViking are discussing trading Rosenthal for Shockey even up.

StahanEatsPepper,,

I like your sense of humor.

Tiki too! And we will give you Larry Ned

Are you a vegetarian since you eat Pepper?
Do you eat the green stuff too, like Moss?
Would youlike Moore Pepper with your Moss?

LOL...They will all get a steady diet of those guys as well as the rest of the Vikings...so much so that they won't want any more when the Vikings are done.

I think that they are a rival, but not more so than the Pack, Bears, or Lions. Your division teams are always your rivals. I would put my list like this:

1)Packers
2)Bears
3)Lions
4)Giants
5)Rams

Either way, I just hate all of them!

Yeah I hated Tampa Bay too when they were in the old NFC Central because there were a lot of seasons where we couldn't sweep them no matter how bad they were.

Yeah the packers always beated tampa and we couldnt. I hated sapp too but i dont mind tampa anymore. I disliked them when they were in our division but i liked Dungy cause he was the old coach for the vikings.

I think the GMEN are a bigger rival to us then the lions are to us. I mean who really cares about the lions.
