    1 game can have an impact.

    If the Vikings have a good showing and win against the Packers on MNF, it will help generate more excitement for the Vikings.
    More excitement means => ticket sales => more sellouts => louder crowds => higher moral for the team

    Fans, IMHO, help drive the energy in a game, and does have an impact.

    One game means a lot, especially against a division opponent.
    Not like in baseball, hockey, or basketball.
    Yeah but you can lose game 2 anyway and then you'r back from where you started

    I think you are overstating this game. It will be a great measure of where we are as a team. I can't wait to see Jared Allen on the field!

    Re: Opening game against the Packers may be the key to the season

    For two young QB's that still need to prove themselves:
    Rodgers that he, although not truely replace Farve, will not hurt the team.
    TJ, although he's solid as the Vikes starter, still needs to win a BIG game and at GB MNF is a BIG game.

    I think it's crucial to their confidence for the season.

    Well you know the first game is an indicator for nothing.
    The team will grow game by game, the performances of players will be incidents....

    How can it not be. We have lost 4 straight games to the Pack. If we can not win this game, thats a pretty good indicator that we are not yet ready to be division champs. If we win this game, it will be a pretty good indicator that we have begun to turn the corner.


    Botton line....If you can't beat the best, then you can't be the best!

    Not really.
    Game 1 is against an NFC division rival.
    Game 2 is against an AFC team.
    A win in game 1 and a loss in game 2 is preferable to a loss in game 1 and a win in game 2 (even though I do NOT want to lose our home opener).
    Of course, [s]if[/s] when we win them both it won't matter.

    You are 100% correct.
    Not only from a logistical and statistic standpoint, but in your argument as far as confidence and all the invariables.

    No offense to the number and stat crunching fans, but if you don't factor in the invariables, you are only factoring half of the sport.

    The Fupas have swept us for two years. We need to straight up embarrass them, demoralize them, destroy them. 1998X10. Knock McCarthy's eyes straight.
