    I think its the verge of old for the NFL. You usually dont want to have a bunch of 31 year olds on your team because they will retire soon. its like the beginning of aging for NFL players. :roll:

    Re: Vikings Turn Focus To Carolina

    ... depends on which position you are talking about. 31 for a QB is not too old, but for a running back it is, because it usually means, you have about 6 years of pounding from linebackers already on your body, and you tend to lose a step or two. Unless you are Jerome Bettis, that is not good (but Bettis has fast feet, so it is ok for him). I would say, 30 is the limit for running backs, after that, it goes downhill very fast.

    Re: Vikings Turn Focus To Carolina

    I think our next 3 games are all huge, we really need to get the Road-Turf Game Monkey off our backs though...

    This would be a great game to do just that...

    Just win baby......Just Win...


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    steve smith is a top 5 wr this year. he is doing great work. smoot/winfield and a safety will have to step up big to shut him down.

    Smith worries the piss outta me. He is so dangerous. Put Smoot on him, not AW.

    Hopefully Smoot can keep up with Steve Smith, who is much faster. Winfield is more suitable to cover him with the Size comparision and also speed. Smoot is better at covering though, so hopefully smoot doesnt get smoke that they do need to put Winflied on Smith, becuz we're going to need Winflied helping with stopping the Run, becuz they have two good backs. Power back Stephan Davis (who is more of a goal lineback or 1st down back) and Foster (who is their best bett to break one open). I think they will run at us 1st and see if we can stop the run, if not they might just keep on pounding our Defense, and they look for a cherrie pick for Smith.

    We absoultely need to stop the run right from the get go, and be able to handle Smith. They better double him.
    Its going to be a Big game for both teams.

    Depends on the person.

    Some RB's were still good after tha age of 31.

    Besides, the comment was made that is is old now.

    Re: Vikings Turn Focus To Carolina

    after just looking at the defense stats, we are pretty close besides the turnover difference. you can pass against their def, but you cannot run. i think this game may be closer than alot of us think. and we should not have a problem covering the spread.

    Re: Vikings Turn Focus To Carolina

    If the offense that we had in the second half of last Sunday's game shows up this Sunday, we should be able to win this game (as well as most of the others)...the defense has already proven that they can handle their business if they don't have to be on the field all day. This could be the beginning of something very good! GO VIKES!!!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
