LIONS: FAST PICKS AND OPINIONS

Recommended Posts

With consideration of my rant in posting "What to Expect", I am leaving my complaints and considerations in that post to sneak in a gutsy prediction for todays game against the LIONS.

Brad Childress already said, as I said he would in my previous rant, that this will be a tough game for the Vikes because its a division rival. Historically, it seems as though when Childress expects a tough game, he makes it tough on himself, no matter what the scenerio or score says.

For instance, San Fran last season was an NFL laughing stock. But when it came time for the 2-5 Vikes to play them, Childress said "Tough team, gonna be a tough one for us".

We went on to lay 28 points on them in the first half off of what I consider to be the best half of offensive Vikings football via The kick a$$ passing game (not to be confused with the two halves of kick a$$ run offense ( see Bears, and Chargers, 2007) since Brad Childress has taken over.

With all the momentum and a big lead going into the 2nd half, the Vikings went on to kick a field goal for the entire second halfs scoring by us, ensuring that the game would appear much tougher then one half of play would have indicated.

So, he has called it again as a tough game. However, the media says this should be a route, and we should have backups in by half time in a blow out game.

I expect some firsts from the Lions today. The first interception on defense. First points scored in the 1st quarter by there offense. But not the first win.

So here it is...

Vikings 37

Lions 20

Vikes playing down to their opponent's ability again. They've got some work to do to meet that 13.5pt spread margin.

What a horrible game.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
