Vikes vs Patriots

Recommended Posts

Thoughts?

This will be a true test for our team, we will be going against some of the best coaching and game planning in the league. They will be able to attack our weakness and audible at the line. Brady will be able to get into the correct plays and protections.

That being said, if we get into Brady's head and start putting him on the ground we have a chance. He's a different QB when he starts getting hit, he don't like to get dirty. My biggest concern is Vareen coming out of the backfield, they are going to try and get him matched up 1 on 1 with our LB's.

I think we can move the ball and score on offense, be interesting to see if they use Revis on Patterson all game, I don't think it will matter because we will move him around.

It's gonna be a tough one but I'm gonna have to go with the Vikes, give me a double shot of that purple stuff!! grin

I agree. It's going to be a tough one. We'll see where this defense stands after this game. The Pats aren't the Pats of 3-5 years ago but with Brady in there they are always a threat. I think the Vikings lose by 7.

Always a chance at home but the victory last week vs a 2nd and then 3rd string QB didn't provide enough competition for our defense to get any kind of handle on how good they are. I'd love for the Vikings to throttle Belichek but don't like our chances.

That's 99% of QBs, except Favre who relished the big hits.

Toughguy - Yup, those Patriots just aren't as good as they were 3-5 years ago. They've only gone 10-6, 14-2, 13-3, 12-4, and 12-4 in the past five seasons. Sounds like they are slumping! Sheesh.

This is still a very good team that wore down in what has been described as a very hot and muggy south Florida sun. Don't kid yourselves. The Patriots are a northern climate outdoor team, which is more than the Vikings can say up until this season.

I really like Zimmer and Norv so far, and think that they will be drawing up a very good game against New England. That said, Belichik is one of the greatest coaches of the modern era paired up with one of the greatest QBs - they don't lose back-to-back games very often.

I think it will be a close game but the Patriots pull out a close victory by less than 10 points.

Tough game, especially with the Pats coming off a game one drubbing. I also think it's still too early to really know what kind of team the Vikes will actually end up being.

I think the Vikes can pull this off IF our D-line can put the kind of pressure on Brady we saw against the Rams. Griffen needs to have a huge game as does the entire defensive front.

It's a HOME game so I'm going with the HOME team. I think Zimmer and Co. squeak one out on Sunday....

I'm with you Floyd. Brady will get his licks in on us but I don't think he can do it alone. We have so many weapons that we haven't even used them all yet both on offense and defense. It is going to be a fun game. I too think the Vikes by a couple of touchdowns.

I wish I could be as optimistic as others. My memory from that game against the Pats in 2006 still lingers. A Monday night game and the Vikes had assembled an awesome defense everyone thought could shut them down. I think I left the game in the third quarter it was so putrid.

I decided not to go bowhunting Sunday, rather go to the game. Much less hope than '06, but anxious to see what the team can do against a quality opponent. Fool me once.....

Coach Hooded Sweatshirt is the only reason for hesitation. Hard to think he'll go 0-2. With that said I stopped by the "Hope for Sale" truck halfway through typing this, Vikes 28-17

Love the vikes and they might finally have a decent head coach.

Still can't pick them over the pats.

Brady 34

I'm drinking the koolaid,

I'm starting Cassel over Brady this week. Of course, by doing that I am probably ensuring Brady has 3 TDs and throws for 400 yards.

So have they started trotting out the 'Cassel has something to prove against his former team' nonsense yet?

That is the scary part, people playing Cassel over Brady (Brady sucks at fantasy though) and people playing the MN D. To make matters worst I'm benching the Pats D because I don't want to cheer for them against the Vikes lol

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
