    Coming off back-to-back road losses, the Vikings return to the friendly confines of their home stadium Sunday in desperate need of a victory..........

    Good Morning, singer.

    But yeah I totally agree with this article. This is definitely a "must win" game for the Vikings. If you look at our schedule after the bye week, we play 4 teams in a row who made the playoffs last year. (@ Bears, @ Cowboys, vs. Eagles, vs. Chargers)

    If we don't beat Green Bay this Sunday, it's going to get ugly.
    In the P.J.'s, my blend tape plays, bullets are strays
    Young bitches is grazed
    Each block, is like a maze, full of black rats trapped
    Plus the Island is packed
    From what I hear in all the stories when my peoples come back, black

    A win would be refreshing, but, at this point of the season it is not a must win.
    It is how they progress as the season wears on.
    It doesn't take a mathematician to figure out that four games into a 16 game season with one W recorded that it is impossible to be in a must win situation.

    This would be a very good game to win.
    Mostly because its the packers who need to be deflated a bit.
    Losing this game will hurt emotionally more than anything.

    "Must win", I guess thats in reference to making the playoffs, but once again thats assuming we are going to get slaughtered when the real competition lines up against us.
    If thats the case, hten who cares if we make the playoffs.
    If we really want to be in the playoffs, then to me, whats important is winning a few games against the better teams on the schedule.
    Winning 3 of the next 6, putting us at 4-5 with seven games left would be a decent mark for this team.
    Going 5-2 and finishing at 9-7 could very well make the playoffs.
    NFC has no power teams, everything is up for grabs.
    Dallas may be the best NFC team right now, as hard as it is to say that.

    Don't get my comments confused with thinking I believe we will go 9-7.

    I agree...winning this week would be a good emotional lift...going into the bye week!
