    Yes, it has been a while since the Vikings' D has done their share in the spoils. It is nice to finally have a team that can potentially win in different facets of the game. I am really burned out on the potent offense with nothing to complement it.

    I think Sharper will get two today.....unless big ben goes out early hurt then it will be atleast double that.

    I see alot of running in this game today from the Steelers, so I'm hoping for some fumbles..

    PHAT Pat and KW, combine for 2 fumbles, both being takeaways..

    2 INTS....... One Sharper, One Smoot.......

    All I can say is that the pittsburg offense scores under 20 giving us an awesome chance to win! We will score 20-13...
