    It doesn't matter if he has 8 or 8,000 posts. We don't, or at least I don't, treat a person or their post any differently based on post count.

    Most of us here are Vikings fans & we are all on the same plane. We are all here sharing our opinion & love for the vikings.

    Sometimes we agree, sometimes we disagree. That's what makes this site what it is.

    Great post, But I can't agree wth you on Chicago's Defense. Overrated? how? Didn't they almost set a record for least points scored agaisnt them last season. They are returning all their starters, which I think means they got better. Chicago is definetly the team to beat in our division, there is no denying that.
    Ok, the raw numbers say I'm wrong, but look at WHO they beat up on last year.

    Washington - Lost 7-9 - Offense ranked 11
    Detroit - Won 38-6 - Offense ranked 27
    Cincinnati - Lost 7-24 - Offense ranked 6
    @Cleveland - Lost 10-20 - Offense ranked 26
    Minnesota - Won 28-3 - Offense ranked 25
    Baltimore - Won 10-6 - Offense ranked 24
    @Detroit - Won 19-13 - Offense ranked 27
    @New Orleans - Won 20-17 - Offense ranked 20
    San Francisco - Won 17-9 - Offense ranked 32
    Carolina - Won 13-3 - Offense ranked 22
    @Tampa Bay - Won 13-10 - Offense ranked 23
    Green Bay - Won 19-7 - Offense ranked 18
    @Pittsburgh - Lost 9-21 - Offense ranked 16
    Atlanta - Won 16-3 - Offense ranked 12
    @Green Bay - Won 24-17 - Offense ranked 18
    @Minnesota - Lost 10-34 - Offense ranked 25

    So, their Defense looked really good against really BAD offenses. The media ignored that fact and started making them out to be the '85 Bears all over again...not even close. Even ignoring the last game against us (Bears fans do, since they pulled their starters...AFTER we humiliated them), they really didn't beat anybody GOOD, but they lost to every good team they faced (and they didn't face many) except one.

    Unfortunately, this year they again have a fairly soft schedule, so we're likely to hear about how wonderful the Bears defense is...again. The truth is, they're GOOD, but not that good and I stand by that 100%.

    Caine
    I have mentioned almost the exact same points a few times and hopefully you have gained a few converts here. I think that defense is GOOD, but they are highly overdone. The comparisons to the 85 team are a frickin joke ... just look at the 85 Bears schedule sometime and then see what they did to VERY good teams in the playoffs and you will see why it is not even a comparison ...
    Solid summary Caine.

    Oct 22 @Seattle 4:15pm - Nothing would please me more than to give Seattle a big fat black eye right here. You know the media is going to fuel the fires on this game with the poison pill contracts in the offseason. Look for Hutch to prove his worth, and Burleson to prove why we let him go so cheap. The question will be, can we stop Shaun Alexander? If we can, we steal this game.


    I can't wait to see S.a run into our D-line and realize that he can't go through a 600lb concrete wall.

    Destroying the Seahawks and Dolphins are top priorities. Especially destroying Culpepper's confidence in Miami.

    I disagree this is an 8-8 team, 10-6 with bad luck, 12-4 with good luck. There are always bewtween two and four games that go down to the wire, the vikings will win these games this year with our D!

    I also disagree with calling the bears D overrated because of the teams they played. I think there are a few vikings fans here who tend to think johnson is better than he really is because he beat up on crappy teams last year.
    You republican whore!

    Re: Challenges facing the '06 Vikings

    i'll be pleased with 9 & 7, 10 wins is possible if the defense can adapt to Tomlins cover 2 and a tailback that can eat the clock. in the nfc lately its always anyones game.
    p.s. all i want for x-mas is for fred smoot to be able to tackle or make a play on the ball
