    Adam Schein from FoxSports.com picks the Vikes to go 7-9

    Can you believe this guy? He picks us 3rd IN THE DIVISION, no less!!!

    [size=18pt]Picks and predictions for the 2009 NFL season[/size]
    Adam Schein,
    FOXSports.com

    OK — so the Falcons didn't turn out to be one of the worst teams in football.

    Dallas didn't go deep into the playoffs.

    Miami was just a little bit better than I'd expected.

    And the Saints didn't make the playoffs.

    But it's a new season — and with a new season comes a new chance to get it right.

    So hide the women, children and Gregg Easterbrook.

    It's time again for the fifth annual SCHEIN preseason picks on FOXSports.com.

    NFC North

    Packers 12-4

    You've already read my awards column. If I'm picking Aaron Rodgers to win MVP, you know I'm high on Green Bay. The Packers defense became better the minute Dom Capers walked through that door, and they will become a feared unit this season. I think Mike McCarthy is a winning football coach and really has instilled toughness in this team.

    Bears 9-7

    This is my biggest regret. I think the Bears upside is high enough that they could make the Super Bowl, yet I have them as the seventh-best team in the NFC. I love Jay Cutler and Matt Forte, but is anybody else just a tad concerned about Tommie Harris becoming Tommie Harris once again?

    Vikings 7-9

    Why the downgrade in wins for an en vogue Super Bowl selection? It's because of the downgrade at quarterback: bringing in the leader in interceptions last year who also happens to be an injured, aging diva who has already created a "schism" in the locker room.

    Lions 5-11

    Packers cornerback Al Harris thinks Detroit can win eight. Let's slow down there, cowboy. Still, five more than last year could be worth a parade after the single worst season in sports history. Look for Louis Delmas and Brandon Pettigrew to have solid rookie years under Jim Schwartz and his new staff. The best news in Detroit? Matt Millen is locked in a studio somewhere.

    Im certainly not saying that the Pack cant win the division....but be real....7-9?
    What a tool!
    This team is way too talented to go sub 500.
    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    It does seem very far fetched...but look at the Packers last year, they had basically the same roster last year as this year but finished 6-10.
    Anything can happen in the NFL.

    I think Schein is trying to draw attention to himself with a prediction like that though...that or he is a true Packer fan.

    I would be shocked.

    We have every key player from last year's division champs plus what most people would consider an upgrade at QB.
    Our RT and receiving corps should also be better.
    I don't see us blowing people away all year, but I do think we win the division before week 17.
    Rock out with your cock out!!!

    What a jackass.


    Even if Favre is an asshole, or throws a lot of picks he brings people out of the box because defenses know he's capable of burning them regularly. Add that to upgrades at the wide receiver position, a healthy defense, and guys who have had a solid number of NFL starts in a backup role at QB, depth everywhere but the offensive line, and Adrian Peterson equates to more wins than the previous year IMO.


    Schein needs to step away from the keyboard and go back to being the meat in his Rodgers-McCarthy sandwich.
