Vikes vs Patriots

Recommended Posts

FISHINGURU

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.

...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.
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.

The Vikings will shock the world by beating the Patriots by at least 2 TDs and Brady will be shut down.

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....

Vikes win by 1 with a 56 yard field goal being the determing factor by Blair Walsh.

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

Vikings by at least 10. There run defense was exposed and Peterson will have a much better game. Rudolph has a big game as well.

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 heard but haven't seen personally snow did NOT treat little pine nicely. Big pine had a huge cut out from road river, was staring as I was plowing cabins. I keep hoping the next two days this snow keeps settling and melting because next week when we hit -15 to -20 it'll be making ice quickly.    I'm off for Red Lake Reservation tomorrow (Friday) for a trout fishing trip Saturday. before people say anything let me answer your questions.  1. Season is open on Reservation all year long 2. We have a tribal guide so we can fish the Reservation  3. No we are aren't fishing lower red lake   We will be fishing for rainbows and brooke trout. I'm taking a group up from my church in frazee. should be a fun time.    Sunday if weather isn't bad I'm hoping to get out and we might make first trip out with ranger. Pretty excited to try it out.    Should have reports on Monday.

      1) Yes, mommy Slot fish are dead. But not many 17" are mommies yet.  2) Nets compile with slots limits?  That's the first I ever heard of that. Cool! 👍  🙄

      Finally made it up to Vermilion to ice fish. I saw numerous ATVs and snowmobiles running around out of McKinley Park so I took my snowmobile out. I found 9" of ice just outside the bay. The top 1" was white but the rest was good and dark. There was 3-5" of snow on the ice and there was a lot of slush. There were a couple of fish houses out by Birch Island. Fishing was very good but they were small except for the 20.5" eye in the picture. Couldn't shrink that fish enough to keep it. Taking the permanent out tomorrow for comfort. Good luck fishing and be cautious for ice conditions.

      Being able to witness gill netting sampling first hand via the DNR very few if any fish caught in the net are able to swim again and nets catch all sizes.  With that being said I'm not comparing this to the Red Lake band as I am ignorant on the topic and have zero idea how they harvest their fish.  I've also made previous posts on how lakes have acquired zebra mussels without ever being fished. Is the likelihood of invasion into Red Lake more likely from a sport angler? Of course, but without the exact knowledge of who it was and when we are just pointing fingers at others. Are there slob sport anglers? Yes there are but spending the majority of my adult life working on reservations across the state I can say that there are good and bad people in every ethnic group and one bad one overshadows ten good ones. I do hope for everyone who frequents the lake whether band members or sport anglers that it continues to be a great fishery. A PR pike from 2 years ago C&R on Red

      So a Mommy fish caught and eaten by an angler isn't really dead? You do understand that the Red Lake Band also has slot limits and open and closed seasons don't you?

      PJ Fleck's Gophers vs. Saban's Crimson Tide? Signs point to Minnesota bowl against the gold standard.   It looks like Minnesota remains pegged for the Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day bowl in Tampa, Fla.   ESPN’s Kyle Bonagura saw the Crimson Tide’s fall to 12th, looked ahead and tweeted: “The rankings this week set up a strong possibility that 10-2 Baylor could wind up in the (‘New Year’s Six’ bowls, likely the Cotton) ahead of 10-2 Alabama. Auburn (then goes to the Citrus and Alabama to the Outback Bowl.”   CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm also has Baylor in the “New Year’s Six” top tier of bowls, as does Stadium’s Brett McMurphy, who slot:  Minnesota vs. Alabama.   How about that wild prospect? The Gophers might draw a dynastic Alabama program.   https://www.twincities.com/2019/12/03/gophers-fall-in-ranking-doesnt-alter-bowl-outlook-but-might-mean-alabama-matchup/
