    Re:5 Reasons Why Vikings Will Win NFC Title Rematch

    The DB's will be fine.
    Lito isn't a washed up guy, he was cut because of a $10 mill roster bonus and the Jets were good at CB.

    Plus, adding Cook and Allen's improvement to the mix could prove the Vikes have a better #3, which the Vikes need against a pass happy offense (like the Saints).

    I'm hoping Tyrell will have a breakout season he didn't have last year.

    LB's will show improvement.
    I have confidence Brinkley will show improvement during an off season, knowing he will probably start again. Won't be a healthy EJ but Jasper will be better.

    Greenway is in a contract year, so that provides a bit of motivation.

    Front line, what can I say, best in the NFL.

    5. Favre Is Back With Dallas In Mind:
    2/5 reasons include Brett Favre... interesting.
    I think the guy didn't need Favre in either of those statements.

    Vikes offense outgained the Saints. Don't get me wrong Favre played a great game, but the WR's and Shank also contributed.

    And I think the whole team, FO, owners, and fans have Dallas in mind.

    I'm glad the Vikes are playing the SB champs. There's nothing better than kicking the best to start a new season.

    Vikes are hungry and the Saints already ate, and NO is a feast.

    Re:5 Reasons Why Vikings Will Win NFC Title Rematch

    The most important reason is #1. -4 turnover differential. All of us know that didn't happen to the Vikings all of last year and it was a fluke in that particular game. Harvin or Berrian doesn't fumble (hell inlcude APs that was blamed on Favre in the 1st half) and it is a totally different ballgame. In fact it would have been a blowout.

    The Vikes are a very talented team. It should always be pretty easy to find a few reasons to believe that they will beat a team in a given week. Most of these in the article are pretty good ones.

    But the Saints are good too, and they also have plenty of reasons to think they will win: home field; pumped up getting their rings; won the last time; maybe the best qb in the league right now; etc. I also think the defending champs are undefeated in these Thursday night openers since they started doing it this way about 5 or 6 years ago. My guess is that the Saints will be slight favorites when the time comes.

    It should be a great game if both teams come to play. Can't wait for the season to start. And of course I hope the Vikes rip 'em apart.
    When the age of the Vikings came to a close, they must have sensed it. Probably, they gathered together one evening, slapped each other on the back and said, "Hey, good job." - Jack Handey [Deep Thoughts]

    Brett is the key for sure. The thought of a TJ vs Brees contest is really not something that would go in our favor.

    I think our D can stop their offense no problem

    I also think we can move the ball on the regardless of who is at the helm

    Re:5 Reasons Why Vikings Will Win NFC Title Rematch

    haha I love Mars' continual love for Fav-re. It makes me more optimistic since I have traditionally been on the Marrdro side of the fence regarding Farve.

    As far as the article goes, it is written with some crazy purple goggles on. I do think we will win the game though. Reason 1 is NO is punch drunk with the SB win. They have so many distractions. NO is fat and happy with their SB victory. Reason 2 is the Vikes are hungry with the sting of giving that ring away. That is why they win that game.

    Looking forward to it.

    Re:5 Reasons Why Vikings Will Win NFC Title Rematch

    I have to say that we should be motivated like hell to win this game. It's not going to make last year's title loss any easier to swallow, but I think we're going to have a chip on our shoulders and come away with the win. You also have to take into consideration that this is just NFL Kickoff and not the NFC Title Game, so obviously the only real thing at stake here is to start the season off 1-0.

    I really would like to see how our secondary improves in the off-season. I really hope our corners can hold their own and not have to rely on our D-line for pressure. This will be Tyrell Johnson's make-or-break year to see if he has what it takes to play safety in the NFL.

    To win Week 1 I think if we can just minimize the turnovers and keep Brees and Co. off the field we'll win. Like I said, this isn't for a trip to the big dance, but it will be a nationally televised game nonetheless and it would be nice if we can actually show up. Last year when we played on National TV we kinda stunk up the joint so hopefully this year we can kick the year off right and get a big win in the spotlight.
