    Re: How the NFL screwed up the schedule

    WTF

    Come on give us some credit

    Chicago got a whopping five games on national television. FOX gets the short end on that one, with the league picking five Bears games that involve NFC teams (Green Bay on NBC in Week 1, Atlanta on NBC in Week 6, San Francisco on the NFLN in Week 10, Philly on SNF in Week 11, [size=10pt][size=10pt]and [size=10pt][size=10pt]a[/size][/size] MNF game on ESPN in the final week of the season).[/size][/size]

    (and get your week right)

    Dec. 28 MINNESOTA, 7:30 p.m., ESPN
    Jan. 3 at Detroit, noon, Fox-32

    Re: How the NFL screwed up the schedule

    I for one HATE IT when the Vikes get "Monday Night" games, "Thanksgiving" Games etc.

    Firm believer that the team needs to get into a schedule/rhythm and not deviate from it.
    Long story short, games of that nature equate to short weeks and added pressure that isn't needed by anyone.

    This article breaks it down better than any of them I read today.....

    By the way............A little snippet from the article that kindof shoots the League is against us "Conspiracy theories " crap all to shit........ ;D

    MINNESOTA: Not only do they not play a Thursday game all year, and not only do they have a Week 9 bye, but the Vikings landed a three-game home stand against the Lions, Seahawks and Bears Weeks 10-12! And that precedes a road game at Arizona and a homer against Cincy. And they play 11 dome games this season!! Someone in the NFL office wants Adrian Peterson to be the league MVP ...oh, and they open at Cleveland, at Detroit, vs. San Francisco, vs. Green Bay and at St. Louis. Peterson should be an absolute MONSTER.

    It's about time they do us a favor. I'm sure this nice schedule only means we'll get screwed more times than usual in the season.

    Re: How the NFL screwed up the schedule

    You do have quite a favorable schedule indeed, looking at run defense. Alot can still happen though, but it looks good at this point. I asume that this is the year that Peterson joins Ahman Green in the 1800 yards group. If he stays healthy, ofcourse.

    Am I missing something about the fines and getting screwed over? Is there some secret anti-Vikings conspiracy going on with the refs? Because I'd like to join in on that and say we got called for holding way to often.

    Don't listen to them Molder.
    If it isn't the refs screwing us over because of bad calls it the commish taking a few bucks from a DE for hitting a PUKE GREEN QB to hard.
