    I imagine Webby paying you with "Pretzel Stix" for doing the "Pillage & Plunder" show hardly qualifies for getting paid for your vast football knowledge & points of view.

    Are they even salted or did he suck the salt off them 1st?
    Webby hasn't even given me saltless pretzels yet. There looks to be an over abundance of non thinking writers out there, so I assume there are some openings.

    It doesnt bother me in the least that we aren't getting credit.
    Everytime the media talks us up, something bad happens.
    An injury, an off the field debacle a losing streak, something.
    We are winning tough games, by being tough minded and physical, and thats what counts.

    As far as the way we are winning, I think I remember during the Pats dynasty they won some games due to mental mistakes by their opponents (see super bowls 38 and 36).
    If thats how we have to win, so be it.
    If we have to force our opponents into mistakes to win, whats wrong with that??
    Thats one of the many factors that wins games in the National Football League.
    ...Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.

    MINNESOTA VIKINGS

    The Vikings have been the worst of the 2–0 teams so far. Both wins were essentially ties — decided by just two or three plays that happened to go Minnesota's way. In the final quarter against Washington, the Vikings benefited from two facemask penalties, an unnecessary roughness call, and John Hall's missed field goal that would have sent the game to overtime. This week, Carolina was leading by a touchdown, then absurdly called a trick lateral play on a punt return, resulting in a fumble that gave the Vikings the ball just 21 yards from the game-tying touchdown, which they scored on a fluke play themselves, a 16-yard touchdown pass thrown by kicker Ryan Longwell on a fake field goal.This is how an average team wins games, not a great team, and the Vikings won't beat undefeated Chicago this week if their game plan is to wait for the Bears to make similar mistakes.
    Fluke is not the right word.

    I can see where he is coming from, but a play that was designed, worked on, and is executed is not a fluke, it is perfection.
    It would have been nice if he would have just said we were opportunistic in our victories.

    Exactly. They make it sound like these plays are drawn up in the sand.

    Thier not gonna give us respect we're gonna have to earn it.A win Sunday should "hopefully" shut the critics up.We gotta be the better team Sunday, everyone at the dome needs to be going nuts.I hate how they dont give any credit to our defense.Hell our defense is the only reason why we where in that game.However it seems that no sportswriters saw that Sunday.Maybe they finally will this Sunday.

    Re: Several Unexpected Teams are 2–0, but Are They for Real?

    The one thing is that there are a few pretenders in this bunch of 2-0 teams. First would be the New Orleans Saints. Drew Brees is a decent QB but their defense lacks the depth to win in the long haul. Atlanta, wel this one is a toss up. They started last year hot but dwindle late in the regular season. The Bears are legit. No question. The only thing that worries me about them is that their offense still isn't better than the middle of the road in the NFL. The Vikings are a real threat to many teams. The Vikings need to find the offense that made them 7-2 under B.J. last year. Jacksonville is another team that deserves respect after knocking off Last Year SB champs. Indy is always good and a contender. The Bengals play in a relatively easy division so watch them fall to wild card potential.

    The New Orleans Saints are pretenders, they will be exposed against the Falcons on Monday Night Football.

    Drew Bree's is a good QB, but their defense is horrible, and they haven't played anybody. ( Green Bay Packers, Cleveland Browns)

    The Falcons will beat them by 14 points or more.
