Frazier could be trying to throw the Jags a curve ball. There is no reason to tell the media that Peterson will in fact be playing. It completely changes how the Jags have to prep for this game in having to deal with Peterson vs Gerhart. Sure Peterson is sitll recovering, but you still have to respect his abilities and reputation.

Questionable to play is where AP is.

I doubt Peterson plays, but remember that one game in 2010 when Frazier said the whole week Favre wouldn't play and even went as far as saying he was doubtful, and then turned around on game day and played him?

I mean, we got blown out that game, but still Laughing

I think we can win this, but the Jags are a very similar team to us. Hopefully homefield can give us just enough edge to beat them.

I'm concerned what this offense will look like, though, especially without Simpson, who Ponder showed a lot of chemistry with this preseason. But the Jags offense will have plenty to deal with themselves.

I don't know what's going to happen, I'm just excited for football to come back! SKOL!!

Everything I've read suggests that Jamarca and Mistral will start against the Jags. Sad

I expect Harvin and Aromshodu to be the top two WRs with Jenkins coming in for 3 wide sets. Harvin moves to the slot in 3 wide.


According to the "unofficial" depth chart, Jenkins/Harvin will be the ends and Burton will come in on 3 WR sets.

I'm interested to see where you are reading this because it makes no sense considering Smith was starting the second and third preseason games and sat out the fourth with the starters.

No articles, but according to the "unofficial" depth chart on the team site. Its updated with the team cuts, but not the Jefferson trade.

http://www.vikings.com/team/depth-chart.html

Also, when they initially announced the 53 Sanford was ahead. When Frazier was asked about Mistral and the starters today, Harrison wasn't mentioned. Granted there is still time to change that. Maybe I'm just reading too much into it.

The big difference is on defence, where the Jags were 6th in the NFL last year, while the Vikings were 21st. Blair Walsh is still an unknown commodity as a FG kicker, and this is one of those games that could come down to a missed FG.

or a made one too, ya know...

I think you're reading too much into it.

Leslie seemed to indicate that Mistral has the starting spot.
But in the press conference there was not any talk of harrison/jamarca from what I remember.

There wasn't much there. When asked if Mistral was the starter, Frazier said "between he (Mistral), and Jamarca we'll get that figured out."

Vikings win 30-20 with Gerhart rumbling for a buck, two dimes, and two pennies

Yup, that's the battle at one safety spot. Harrison has the other spot.

That's 122 yards.

You can stop trying to figure that out now, VD.
