Yeah, I'd like to see our offense really start clicking. Ponder, Peterson, Harvin, Simpson and Rudolph. If they can all have a big game, we'd be in the money.

My prophecies tell me 34-10 Minnesota Vikings. You saw it here first!

In fairness, they have played some high powered offenses but at no point is it ok to allow 34pts, 38pts, 41pts and 38pts in consecutive weeks to open the season.



Eh our D isn't as bad as the stats show. Its the Os lack of converting 3rd downs that kills our D not to mention the picks and fumbles.... Our D does like to give up TDs in the 1st and then settle down in the 2nd and 3rd and by the time the 4th comes around they are just spent.

So if Hass can convert on some 3rd downs and our D can rest a lil bit we should have a shot in this game. Inless AP goes all man mode on us lol.

But look for Cmac our starting MLB to help our run D after missing pretty much 3 n a half games this year. Hes our fire. Hes our playmaker. Hes our run stopper.

and our CBs have been pretty much shut down man to man on the outside so look for your TE to eat us up in the middle.

Also im pretty pumped to play a team I don't hate lol.

anyways should be a good game. I think it will be a closer game then most of you think. either way heres to an injury free game!

See ya guys on sunday!

Not gonna happen. This team is not built to beat up on teams, rather to grind out a close win. We might win by a touchdown, or a touchdown and a field goal, but I don't expect anything too fancy, unless everything goes our way like it did against the 49ers.

I agree: we are not a team that generates a lot of turnovers (especially interceptions) and that is usually what contributes to blow-out wins.

I think it'll be an interesting matchup. According to Football Outsiders, here are the rankings of both teams:

Offense: MIN - 15th, TEN - 25th
Defense: MIN - 11th, TEN - 31st
Special Teams: MIN - 1st, TEN - 4th

I think this is a game where we play well on all cylinders. We'll get things going.

usually I'd agree with what you are saying though. As most of my predictions have came down to roughly a touchdown's difference.

Injury Status has been updated on page 1. Hopefully Erin will be ready to go, because Mitchell may not.

I think Erin Henderson will play, he is listed as questionable. That usually means they will be more than likely to play, than doubtful anyway.

I think Brinkley will remain as nickel MLB.

According to Pelissero, Erin Henderson should be good to go. He had a full practice today.

With Michael Jenkins dealing with a rib injury, I hope we see a little of Jarius Wright in the slot. The kid has a lot of slot appeal. He has a knack for finding the soft spots in the defense and sitting down, but also has the ability to stretch the field.

Thats good news for Henderson. He was starting to have a nice season coming together.

As for Jenkins. Meh. Does he really even add anything to the team other than being a veteran presence?

Good blocker? Michael Jenkins kind of sneaks up on you. I could recall maybe one catch this season, but he has 10 for 100 yards already. Still, he's regressing even further. Very little seperation. Swapping out him for Simpsons is a big improvement.

yeah, I guess.

but then I thought Minnesota was more so regarded as one of the better downfield blocking teams in the NFL?

I won't discredit that Jenkins seems like a hardworking guy, but I don't think he adds much to this team. He plays smaller than his actual size (where as Simpson plays much larger than his size). He's regressed from last year, where we actually threw the ball to him downfield. Now it just seems like he's good for maybe 5-10 yards a catch. No explosion. No physical specimen.

Without a doubt, Michael Jenkins is replaceable.

I would rather see Devin Aromashodu on the field more than Michael Jenkins, but maybe that's just me.

Yep to me Devin has shown more then Jenkins so far this season.

I would hope that by next season, neither of these 2 WR are considered for our top 5

The only positive note about Jenkins is he is said to be reliable as a possession receiver, whereas, Aromshodu has shown some big play ability. I think the offense would really benefit having Harvin, Simpson and Aromashodu as the top 3 receivers. Then atleast, you not going to get a guy like Jenkins who is basically useless 10 yards+ downfied. MN needs a spark in the passing game, id like to see what Aromashodu can do as the #3.
