    Having delt Minn a lose already, watching a bottom feeder bears team tear the queens a new one..... I think we will be just as fine as wine. Bridgewater is mobile, but I think having the claymaker in his new role can help with that aspect and bridgewater is still making rookie mistakes and throws he should not. No way in frozen hell does Minn put up a fight.

    Even on their turf:

    Packers - 37
    vikeQueens - 13

    Even if AP comes back (Hopefully he won't) I think we will sink the Vikings ship.

    Packers: 439
    Vikings: 3

    AP wont be back by next sunday. Red tape issues. Plus he has not played nor practiced for some time now. He wouldnt be much of a factor, he is in a decline anyways.

    I don't think AP will play against us even if reinstated this week, which I doubt. This should be an easy win. I don't even see it as a trap game. The Vikings are just bad and they screwed up royally by starting Teddy Bridgewater too soon. According to MN sportswriters, he has now taken a few steps backward. That's what happens when you see if rookies will sink or swim. Often times they sink, and now the Vikings stink.

    I'm not sure if 439-3 is optimistic enough.

    Well, I wanted to give them at least 3 to be nice.
    Thought about 2 but a safety is very rare.

    No way the Packers lose this one. Games over before halftime as Rodgers pads his stats for the MVP voting

    One thing frightens me about this game... our special teams.

    The specials teams have been pretty good so far this year by Slocum standards... but the past two weeks starting to look like the special teams of years past. The only way we lose to the Vikes is if special teams totally kill us.

    It figures for me that I have Rodgers as my fantasy QB and he's not even playing 4 quarters these days!

    Greedy??? he has thrown out plenty to be happy about in his limited role lol. He should be close to leading in FF points now.

    :tup: So do I! ...and so am I! I figured Cobb would be fantastic this year and I also figured he'd slip in the draft further than he should.

    Us: 59:59
    Them: 00:01

    We let them kick the FG to keep it classy because we don't really want to embarrass them with a shut out, do we?

    Honest I give a slight pass on STs last week. The blocked xp n muffed hold are anomolies and the missed FG was from 50 in conditions I dont think MM even attempts if we're not blowing them out..... Will say the blocked punt was concerning and should be looked at though

    They didn't return any kicks back for a TD and they let one of the Bears slip by?

    I don't see any reason to worry. Our O and D has been great and the STs could be a lot, lot worse.
    I think a lot just want more perfection. A complete team. Maybe that's what it takes for some to feel good about the Pack even though there is already plenty to feel good about them already.

    Yeah, I guess predicting a shut out and a full 60:00 TOP would be something only homers would say. :whistling:

    No game in the NFL is a guaranteed win. I think a lot of Broncos fans at this time last week figured they would score more than 7 points and win against the Rams. It happens a lot. (Let's not get into the KC game during our undefeated year)

    The game is on the road and Minnesota, who appears will not be playing in the post season, need something from this year and this game is a big one for them. I'm sure Bridgewater wants his first "huge" win/upset.

    With that being said, I'm confident and I think the team should be confident, but don't ever overlook any team, especially one that has something to prove and a division opponent. With that being said, I do think we go out, take care of business and celebrate thanksgiving with an 8-3 record (and maybe even in 1st place if Detroit doesn't win in Foxboro)


    Packers: 34
    Vikings: 17

    (Game is on the road and minnesota gets a garbage TD? This score is actually hard to predict, I don't know why)

    They've done fine, Masthay fumbled the ball a bit, and the Eagles blocked a extra point. It only cost two points, nothing to worry about.

    This game it would be cool to put up another 50 points.

    Only dumb Broncos fans penciled in a win. Those Rams have had arguably the toughest schedule so far. They knocked off the 49ers, the Seahawks, and the Broncos while losing to this list of top teams: Dallas, Philly, San Fran (split series), Kansas City, and Arizona. Those are all contending playoff teams. Their only two easy games were Vikings and Buccaneers. I'm not sure that the Packers would be better than 4-6 had we played that schedule!
