    Re: Week 8 power ranking

    Peter King puts the Vikings at #6.

    6. Minnesota (4-2). Talk about a leap up the rankings. Can't avoid respecting the Vikings any longer, not after they've held six foes this season to 16, 13, 19, 17, 17 and 13 points and beaten the defending NFC champs at their impregnable home by 18.

    Re: Week 8 power ranking

    I can live with a ranking of 12.
    Keep in mind we did get beat straight up by Buffalo, struggled 3 quarters against Detroit, and got lucky against Carolina.
    The upside is the Bears got lucky they beat us, and we spanked the feathers off the Seachickens.
    12 sounds reasonable for now.
    After our Monday night win I'd like to see us ranked at least 7.


    SKOL!!

    Re: Week 8 power ranking

    Fox!! what a joke.
    :

    They are claiming that the reason we won is because Hutch held on Taylor's 95 yrd run and I guess that was the difference in the game.
    Never mind the other 24 points we scored.
    Of course it is Fox that was claiming that the injury to Hasselbeck was intentional.
    I don't think they actually watch the games.
    Probably too busy tapping out text with one finger on their keyboards.
    :P

    Re: Week 8 power ranking

    A hold by Hutch on Taylor's run?
    WTF?
    Seriously, you and I know that OL do hold a little bit on almost every play, but from what I could see on the TV, I didn't see any holding that play!

    Also from Peter King:
    Offensive Player of the Week

    (tie) Steve Hutchinson, G, Minnesota. Made the key block/mauling on Chester Taylor's 95-yard touchdown run -- the longest in franchise history -- that gave the Vikes a 24-10 lead in the third quarter and clinched the upset at once-powerful Seattle. Hutchinson left the Seahawks in a controversial free-agent defection last winter, so you'll pardon Mike Holmgren if he didn't invite Hutchinson over to the house for a latte the night before the game.
    And the ESPN guys are talking about what a great job hutch did by holding his block until CT was past him.
    Fox is just being silly.

    Re: Week 8 power ranking

    FOX is a joke, its what they do.
    They have some good shows but for the most part they try to be the joke network with shows like Family Guy and American Dad.
    Their News Channel is also a joke.
    They are about as fair and balanced as a teeter-totter with an anvil and feather on either end. Also their sports channel has a lot of crappy, joke shows.


    That being said House is awesome, their pre-game is good (but much better with JB).

    The Vikings should be ranked in the Top-10 at least.
    And if it wasn't for an untimely fumble against the Bears we'd be 5-1 and leading our divison.
    When it s all said and done, you ll have to admit we re number 1!

    The Bears will slide.
    There is no way Grossman can pull through for the season, 6 turnovers against the Cardinals and still pull off a W?
    Their upcoming road trip will be their demise.

    Re: Week 8 power ranking

    Hey I'm not complaining yet, going up to 12 from 18 is pretty dang good if you ask me.
    At least they are starting to give us some credit.
    the New England game will be huge, what are you guys gonna do if we win?
    I don't even know, I might have to break out the bikini a little early, but oh wait Cajun hasn't sent it to me yet!

    If the Vikings win we could send you a case of bikinis and neum can video tape you modeling them.
    We'll send the clip to Winter Park to help perk up the boys for the midseason push to the playoffs.
