    Vikes discussion on Mike&Mike today (ESPN)

    I heard Mike (Golic) and Mike (Greenberg) talking about the Vikings this morning on ESPN radio. Some of the things they said:

    - The Vikings have surprised themselves with the win streak. Each game they say 'wow, we are good'.

    - They only have beat one good team during the 6-game win streak (NYG)

    - Losing Culpepper forced them to run the ball more and throw less. Thus, less interceptions. Brad Johnson was thus good, because he forces them to be more balanced.

    - The Steelers game will tell if they are "for real". Golic thought the Steelers would win by not turning the ball over, and just doing what they did against Chicago.

    I haven't been this anxious about a game this early in the week in quite some time.

    I wonder if they take into account that the bears D played pretty bad that day. the tackling up front was just awful at times. I hope the bears D bends like that for the vikes in week 17, but I think the steelers benefitted from a porous bears D last sunday.

    Re: Vikes discussion on Mike&Mike today (ESPN)

    I tend to agree with you guys. I think the Vikings in the "Terrordome" are very, very hard to beat. One of the toughest gigs in the NFL is to come into Minneapolis and beat the Vikes. The crowd will be loud ! The hits will be just a wee bit harder. The defense is going to have another good game. I think it is very, very critical to stop Bettis. I also think we need to put our best corner on Heins Ward (how does he spell his first name !?) and then limit any "run after the catch". If we do those two things, we should be o.k. I think Roethlisberger looks very, very mediocre right now. I heard he hurt his hand and it shows. I don't think you can come into the H-dome with a banged up paw and throw on us, either. Not with our corners and safeties.

    Ultimately, we need to not make mistakes in this game and to win 3 or 4 critical 3rd-downs, and then maybe get some luck. But I disagree with people who say the Steelers are favored.

    I just think this is the real test for us so far...

    i am extremely excited myself, more excited than i was for both of the gb games. this is almost like a playoff game. i think if we can stop their running game, force them to pass, our d will have another amazing game. i hope that our offense turns it up a notch and continue doing a great job of not turning the ball over. we are getting better and better every week, i hope it continues on sunday and throughout the rest of the season. skol vikes!!!!

    Bettis has one average game, and everyone squirts themselves.
