    Vikings Open at 12/1 to win 2011 Superbowl

    GB also 12/1, Indy is favorite at 6/1.


    You would have to be nuts to bet the Vikes at this point with Favre in limbo.

    I'd lay a few bucks on the Texans and Panthers at 40/1 though.

    And before you say I'd lose a few bucks how many would have taken the Saints at 25/1 this time last year

    I've seen the Colts at 13/2 mostly. They're a little cheap on this one. Lol.

    The Texans are a great pick to put a couple of bucks on right now. I know I would. If they come away with a good draft and/or one key FA signing, they'll be a contender. They where so close this year.

    ESPN had the Pack at 8/1 odds I think. We weren't even listed amongst the top.

    The Saints have a cake schedule, if Favre doesn't come back thay have a good shot at returning to the SB

    I'd be willing to bet on the Saints not making the playoffs next year.

    That would be one of the dumbest bets ever.

    Don't let a bitter loss jade your feeling about the Saints. If Brees stays healthy they are going to win a lof of games

    Spin it how you want but they beat 3 HOF QB's to win the superbowl.

    If Favre does not return we have a good chance of missing the playoffs with the hard ass schedule we have.

    I'm not really gonna bet on it but I just think their defense is gonna be worse and cost them at least a few games and really it's just a gut feeling I have.

    I don't think they will only lose 3 games like this year but with that easy looking schedule I can't see them not winning 10 unless they suffer major injuries and lose some players to FA

    Your hating life waiting on the Noodle aren't you my friend.....

    Relax, he signed a two year contract for a reason. Everyone knew this plan was gonna take 2 years. He is coming back.

    As to the line........

    Funny when you think about it that the odds makers would put us that high based on the Waffle (aka Noodle) and his typical approach to getting out of training camp, unless of course they were smart enough to also recognize that this team is good enough to carry the likes of TJ into the big dance.

    In the end, all is not lost my friend if your hero doesn't come back. I suspect we will win a few games regardless of who is under center.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
