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

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

      Yah, that’s a great report Joe.  Thanks!

      Found the walleyes during the afternoon today. Wind blown rock reef. 8 feet of water. Bobber and leech. All the walleyes had perch minnows in their bellies. We caught 11 and kept our 8. The one pictured was 23 inches.

      Just got back from another 5 days. Fishing was ok. Little more warm as and humid then I like but survived. Skeeters weren't real bad but the deerflies are getting to be real annoying.

      Well here is my two cents.  Have done a lot of fishing and not much catching.  Been very windy and now feels like a oven so its a hard bite. Walleyes we have caught have been fairly shallow.  Most on live bait but a couple on shad raps.  No real pattern ,  one here and one there. Bass are more active.  Morning has been good for them.  The past weekend I think its the most pontoons and wake boats I have ever seen on Whitefish.  Big fishfly hatch the last few days. This weekend you better get up early cause the armada forms about 10:00 am.  One strange thing is we still have sunnies on nests around our dock.  Very late for that.  So guys keep your eyes open as there are some crazies out there buzzing around.  Happy fourth!

      Awesome report. Thanks!

      The Leech Lake walleyes are on the move and our guides have been chasing them! With a recent fly hatch and some heat moving in this week has been a grind but we are still finding limits. A few keys to putting fish in the boat have been the location, the presentation and the wind.   Most of our fish have been on Sucker bay and the main lake. Duck point, Ottertail point and Stoney point have all been good and putting out fish. We have been focusing on the 11-14 feet of water and covering ground has been important. Both Duck and Ottertail points have nice break lines that top out around 8 and bottom at 20, which, is what we have been focusing on. Try to run your boat along the break line and make note of where the fish tend to be. If they are on the top of the break fish there and likewise for the deeper water.   Our presentation of choice, when the wind allows it, has been bottom bouncers with spinners. Gold, pink and white, and green have all been getting the Leech Lake walleye guide fish in the boat. Try to run these at 1.3-1.8 mph with just enough line out to “bounce off the bottom.”   The wind has been a nice advantage the past few days. Use the wind to push your boat along the desired path for a nice easy drift. As stated above the places we have been focusing on are actually in the same area but with different layouts. this allows you to make sure you are fishing in the waves and not in flat calm water. As you may know, leech is very clear so on a flat calm and sunny day it can be tough. Find the waves and find the action.   We do still have some openings for July yet. Give us a call to see what we have open. https://leechlakeguideservice.com Dennis Carlson with his Biggest walleye 27 inches. Caught on a green spinner rig

      There are sturgeon in all parts of the river, but Stillwater to Bayport is really gonna be your best shot at catching one.  Especially right around the Excell Energy plant.  Good luck.
    • gimruis
      I used to fish right below the Grays Bay dam on Lake Minnetonka when I was kid.  We caught all kinds of fish there.  I often wondered if a guy could start there and float further down on Minnehaha Creek in a kayak.  It sounds like its quite possible, especially after a good rain like we just received.  Might be worth a try.
    • Muskyhunter73
      I mostly fished muskies today. Had two hit this morning. Finally saw a fish on the rocks tonight. Heard of one 51 incher caught tonight.
