I guess the 7th overall pick having a 160 yard FIRST GAME, let alone the D, is worth mentioning on HBO's Inside the NFL which used to be my favorite sports show. Even aside from them leaving out the Vikes, it was BORING,their discussions went nowhere, they didn't even go through all their picks for week 2, and their show is still 4:3 standard definition because only everyone I know has access to HDTV, and there's also regular HBO for people who don't.

They didn't show any Viking highlights.
I guess I don't need to watch it when it re-broadcasts.

Don't be surprised when we still get little to no LOVE after we put a hurtin' on Detroit this week.
A.D. can get another 100 yd game, and they'll probably still rave about the rookie WR that only gets 1 pass thrown in his general direction due to a Purple Haze defense with a fog so thick, that Kitna won't see 5 ft. in front of his face!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But...............In time, they will all see the light!!!!

yah but i'm sure that oh so exciting packer/eagle game got a 15 minute discussion.
all i've heard so far since week one is can detroit or green bay challenge the bears for the division after a not so great start by the bears.
ummmmm, excuse me, i know we didn't beat mcnown and the raiders, or beat the eagles at home cuz of special team muffs, but holding any nfl team to 3 points and scoring 2 defensive tds should at least warrant mention.
the falcons aren't exactly the colts, but there not exactly as bad as the raiders either.
whatever.
f--- the media.

Look the Vikes did well ... but everyone had them penned in to win this game ... it is not like it was a huge surprise. And actually ... I think many would say the Falcons are as bad as the Raiders. Atlanta very well could be picking Brian Brohm with the first pick of next year's draft.

The media hates the vikings.They are only obsessed with vick,favre,and the patriots

Yeah, the media is only concerned with the "large market" teams like the Pats, Cowboys, and so on.
I see more Raiders coverage than Vikes coverage.
Even worse is that the Fox affiliate up here in Alaska always plays the Seahawks and/or Packers games.

i wouldn't go as far as to say this was a lock win in most people's eyes.
the only thing i heard from the media is double digit losses for us and possibly drafting brian brohm.
you mean to tell me that the falcons were so bad the mike vick alone was carrying them to 8-8 records?


if detroit can get credit for scoring points against a "solid D" in oakland, as the media says, then the vikes deserve credit for completely dominating a solid run offense with or without vick.


the point is, we could beat the lions this week and people will just dismiss that as the lions not being good.
so we will get slept on until they have no choice but to stop ignoring us.
i like it, but i still hate hearing about other teams getting props, just aggitates me

Yeah, I agree, it frustrates me too. On the other hand, with our defense hitting on all cylinders, the media will have to sit up and take notice. It's great to see our D changing the course of the game...

it wasn't until 3 different coaches said, "we decided to stop butting our heads ona wall and started passing" that the media gave us any credit as a run D last year.

expect at least 3-4 games and they will become aware of our D!!

hopefully by then, our O wakes up
