Keep the ball rolling. Heavy doses of ADRIAN PETERSON and PERCY HARVIN.

Let's go.

You must be really excited for next week, disaacs! Already have the gameday thread up. Laughing

Is Chris Johnson back?

I hope so, that dude is straight terrible.

The Vikings are going to roll over the Titans. It isn't even going to be close.

Titans have looked miserable this year, outside of last week. Jake Locker doesnt really scare me, though his mobility could pose a challenge.

I don't even think Locker is going to start. How can he play in a cast?

Well, considering how bad people think our team would be this year, I won't downplay the Titans, other than one thing:

Chris Johnson is straight awful. Terrible. He sucks. I don't care what he did this week. If he doesn't have a hole the size of a cruise boat, he won't get any yards. Tennesse's Oline is really bad at run blocking too.

Otherwise, they are an overall solid team.

I think we have a good shot at winning this.

(and I'm never watching Christian Ponder highlights on youtube again. I jinxed him.)

I've been trying to get in here after the games now to put it up...I'm not "excited" per se, but I'm glad to see that they have been playing so well (although offensively it seems they were pretty weak today...at least from what I listened to on XM).

Ponder seems to be playing better this year at home.

I think this will be the week he really goes off, and shuts down even more questions.

He'll help Harvin and Simpson have big games.

Id rather face Locker. Hasselbeck is a more efficient passer underneath, which seems to be given the Vikes trouble.

Not sure I'd say it gives us trouble, but rather its what we are allowing. With playing our defense to not allow big plays, especially playing against Megatron and Moss the last two weeks, I think we were okay with giving up the underneath.

Yeah, Hasselbeck worries me a bit. Still, Tennessee looks to be one of the worst teams in the NFL, and the game is at home. Nothing really going for them.

Chris Johnson had a huge game against Houston. He has struggled horribly this year, but his speed alone allows him to be a threat on any carry. Johnson has been bad, but i still respect his blazing speed.

Or Harvin and Simpson (and Rudolph and Peterson) will help him have a great game!
