    Looking to the Lions

    While there are endless threads going on about why we suck so bad, who's responsible for what, and even still talking about the Dolphins game, or at least in that thread. I think we should look forward to what's going to happen in a few days, that that is the Lion's game. This is an extremely winnable game, and if we play if right, it can be a huge confidence builder. We need this game, and I think that everyone can agree that this is a must win game. If we can't beat the Lions in our own house, then we sure as hell can't beat anyone else in theirs. The Lions only real threats are Calvin Johnson and Jahvid (Javhid?) Best. I think Best can present some problems, as a lot of quick speedy RBs do. Calvin Johnson is a huge guy, and it would be very helpful if we have Chris Cook back, what with his long arms and him being relatively tall.

    The Lions only real strength is their D-line, and I think Favre gets harassed all day, with Ndamankong Suh ripping his head off at some point during this game.

    Like I said, this is a must win game. The most important game of our season so far.

    I think our defense capitalizes on their weak o-line and plays like its been playing the past few games. I think Favre will go something along the lines of 19/27 250 yds and 2 Tds, with AP having a huge day for us.
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

    All indications are that Harvin will be healthy.



    But we don't just have to win....

    There's such a thing as winning ugly and failing to gain the optimism and confidence we need going into that Bye.

    I think we have to win pretty and sure as hell not win ugly.

    My guess is we barely scrape out a win and then hope to get the ship righted after the bye.

    While that isn't what I hope for, I could handle that.

    Re: Looking to the Lions

    We will win if......

    1. Our OL pulls their heads out of their asses
    2. Our WRs get open, run crisp routes, or even catch the ball
    3. Our coaches finally out coach the other team
    4. Favre figures out it is the regular season

    I agree, but Favre can only do so much.

    The team has to step up.

    And would add that Peterson has to keep reading the note to self on his hand, "DO NOT DROP BALL."

    Re: Looking to the Lions

    And our pass protectors.....

    ALL need to write two names on their hands......

    Bosch and a boy named Suh.

    Be ready or we're in big trouble.

    Give Favre time and he'll pick apart a weak secondary.....fail and you may make up his mind once and for all about retirement.

    Those are your choices.

    Favre knows that the Jets and the Packers have even better pass rushers.....and the Pack will be highly motivated by their revenge issues with Favre.

    Re: Looking to the Lions

    This weekend, the Lions need to be reminded of who they are, and their place in the division. They're coming into the Thunderdome, and the fans need to do their part to make it live up to it's name.

    The Vikings have their backs up against the wall, and as much as I hate to say this at this early point in the season, the Vikings are playing for their Playoff lives.

    Our guys, I believe, will rise to the occasion and win quite convincingly with a double-digit point spread.

    That's my purple-shaded post of the day.

    Re: Looking to the Lions

    I believe you're right.

    I'm guessing 28-14.

    Eternal optimist.....but I suspect there are a lot of Vikings who feel like their back is against the wall in their own house--and they're exactly right.
