Vikes vs Patriots


FISHINGURU

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

Vikes 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

The Vikings are going to surprise some people this week. NE looked terrible, their best receiving option ran slow and hobbled, their O-Line couldn't keep Brady upright, and Brady was making some of the most hideous throws I've ever seen him make. Pats D looked awful too, they let Knowshon Moreno run all over them. These are not the Patriots of years past

Vikes by 7

I have the Vikes defense as well. Funny, I was the only guy to draft them.... and Matt Cassel.

      Well hello stranger 🤣 been hiding in in the bush again.🤔😊

      Condensation in portables directly related to the amount of propane used. Each pound of propane burned produces about 1.6 # of water. (1 1/2 pint) Ice melt from heater also adds moisture. Better insulated, less heat & condensation. A floor also greatly reduces moisture. The colder the outside temp the greater visible condensation. At -17 Deg. frost visible in my 949i Eskimo Hub - Big Buddy running on Hi, 18,000 BTU. At 21,600 BTU per pound propane frost in 4 hours on walls and celing. New Otters have excellent insulation, better than my Eskimo.

      This is missing the point so far I didn’t even want to start commenting on it.  So, that’s it, I’m done with that one.   Wardens should be following the mandate for whatever reason one wants to choose.  And we have the right to ask them to or not let them in.  Pretty simple.  And I’m not a mask Nazi either.  I hate em too but I wear them for others.
    • Wanderer
      Seems intentional, I would say.  They’d probably have too many and maybe too congested there?  Or just more of closed residential perk?   Nice to have some discussion on it even though the OP didn’t seem to care after all.

      Snowmobile trails not good. Haven't seen any grooming. Only good place to ride is in the woods. You can go anywhere on a wheeler in the woods and most anywhere on lakes. Look out for slush on lakes as we've had alot of that.
    • smurfy
      just talked to a friend of mine, north of deer river and said they havent, didnt get alot of snow with the last roiund. he said getting around on the lakes seemed pretty easy.   i  was up over the new years weekend and when i drove home the trails i did see along with the road ditches looked pretty beat up. thats the best i got!!!!!!!
    • SkunkedAgain
      When I was up two weeks ago, the lake snow was getting thin and was barely thick enough in the woods for snowmobiles. Have we added much snow lately?   Any word on the trails?

      Wear one of those suits if you've got one.    I'd bet that if those virologists didn't have the suit, and had the choice between nothing or a mask, they would likely choose the mask all day long. It's better than nothing. I don't think that the *powerful* mask lobby is out there pushing doctors to encourage mask use just for financial gain! I certainly don't do it for the comfort or looks.
    • SkunkedAgain
      That looks warm. When are we all invited over?  
    • CJH
      I bought my new Thermal Otter Hub on clearance at REEDs last year.  I'd check there.  I am ordering from them more and more.   I get a touch of dampness when I heat it up, but it definitely doesn't drip like my old canvas Clam flip over did.
