    Well heck yes, but we are just kinda talking right? I guess that can be said of every single threat on this forum can't it? Let's wait until gameday?

    I'm very interested in seeing the Packers D against Peterson...also I have no inkling of doubt that the Pack win this by at least 14. I'm more curious to see if they can contain Peterson, knowing he is their Offense. This is for future games, with teams that have strong running games.

    I do see Newhouse struggling against Allen. Hell, even experienced players struggle against Allen. It's going to be loud in there and I anticipate Newhouse getting a false start or two. We are really going to need Starks/Grant in this game. I think this is going to be a closer game than most people think. And the Vikings still have AP and as long as they have him, the Vikings aren't pushovers.

    Oh yeah. It was supposed to be "a walk" for the Pack.

    Jason Garrett starting for the Cowbags in a Thanksgiving game against GB (and Reggie White) ...

    I'm not being negative...I'm just cautious because ... well, Cam Newton theoretically could have beaten the Pack earlier in the year. I hedge because there isn't a "book" yet on Ponder. The Vikes know what he can and can't do ... the Pack don't yet. In short, I hate miracles. haha...

    I bet McCarthy will give the team a week off if they win and only a couple of days
    off if they lose. Some extra incentive for the players to win this game going into
    the bye week.

    Looks like we will be without Sam Shields, but the Vikes will be without Antoine
    Winfield, their best corner, along with John Sullivan, their starting center.

    Anybody remember the Packers-Vikings game in the Metrodome, in 2002? The Packers were 8-1 coming into the game and the Vikings were 2-7. We were supposed to beat the tar out of them due to record alone, but Brett Favre had a 56% completion percentage and threw 3 interceptions while Culpepper passed all over us en route to a 31-21 Packer loss. The Vikings made plenty mistakes, but we made more. I still have a tape of the game, somewhere.

    We outmatch them. The Vikings can bang the AP and Jared Allen drums all they want, but in the end the Packers outmatch them by a large margin. I'm talking about the teams as a whole, not two individual players. I respect both AP and Allen as great players, but look at the rest of the Vikings. Even with them, they are a 1-5 team. AP and Allen are certainly two players that deserve our consideration and are going to have to be game planned for, but they are not enough to bring down the Pack. Take those two away and what are they left with? We outmatch them on pretty much every level.

    Yet I heard the same worry about the Rams game, that we would take it too light and could be upset. Okay we didn't beat them by 50 points, we still thoroughly took care of business. I expect the same for the Vikings.

    Packers up by 17, I think Crosby will be 11 for 11 and the Packers 7 -0 when they reach the bye.

    I dont understand how people come up with predictions of scores, I find it really stupid.
    What if A-rod goes down in the first 5 minutes of the game?
    There goes your 35-14 or whatever game out of the window.
    All I'll say as I think we can beat them, we have some great tape from last week to see how to stop AP but that all might change this week with Ponder depending on how well he throws the ball.

    That's why we call them "predictions." It's based on what is likely or probable to occur if things remain as they are. Of course nobody really knows what's going to happen, the predictions are rooted in probability. Unless you are psychic like me!

    Well, your passing attack should pick up ground tomorrow. Vikings defensive back Chris "I beat my girlfriend" Cook committed domestic abuse and was arrested at 2am. He is spending the weekend in jail. Miscreant misanthropes like this should be kicked off the team. This Cook twit just can't stay out of trouble. At least Jared Allen will be putting Rodgers on the turf a few times and Viking fans have a chance to evaluate Ponders ability against the defending NFL champions.

    Skol!

    Kitten, I respect your opinion and agree with several points, but, there are a few other players to account for than just Peterson and Allen. On offense you have Harvin... and that is about it. Defensively, you have E.J. Henderson and again, that is about it.... sheesh... my Vikings (yes, mine. I own them - think the crazy Irishman from the movie Braveheart lol) are going to get spanked. lol It will just be fun to watch football being played. Enjoy the game Kitten!

    After the win against the Falcons I cannot be convinced the Packers will lose.
    Especially against a 1-5 team. Child, please.

    Indeed, I forgot Harvin and Henderson! How could I of! Everyone is focused on Allen and AP! Enjoy the game, too! :)

    Don't know if it's been posted in here yet but it looks like we'll see So'oto play tomorrow. I'm really excited to see what he's got.

    I think Ponder will be to nervous about playing the Packers in his first game to have a "miracle"

    Much like the year we beat them both times in the regular season 34-31, then in the play offs, an 8-8 Minnesota team, in OUR house beat us down 31 to 17, with Favre throwing 4 picks, and Culpepper just shredding us.

    Oh the horror, much why I hate playing Minnesota.

    I wonder if we're gonna play Devon House this week, with Shields probably out, idk...
    Don't like Bush in coverage.... I mean, unless Dom just sends him on the blitz every down, idk.

    I hope Shields plays this week, I really don't like the way Bush covers either.

    It will be very interesting seeing as how the Packers have the #4 ranked run defense, so I'm excited to see the Packers get another true test being Adrian Peterson cause they've already had a test in Micheal Turner of the falcons.
    should be a very good game with a Packers win for the 7-0 into bye week.
