    Injuries were their excuse for going 6-10 last year.

    One day they will face it that Rodgers is all flash and no substance.
    He doesn't know how to lead and inspire.

    Same for Cutler IMO, his press confidence looks like a kid who got beat up in the playground trying to explain it to his dad.

    I have to disagree quite strongly about the Rogers things.
    He's in his second year of starting and has been proven to be quite a QB.
    As a starter he's young, and he's getting his bell rung over and over.
    Aaron Rogers has more time to throw and nobody would be saying something like that.
    The issue is Rodgers DOES have time to throw.
    He hangs onto the ball far too long, in fear of hurting his stats.
    He seems much happier to take a sack than risk an interception or even incompletion.
    He doesn't throw the ball unless a receiver is wide open.

    +1

    I don't get it.
    Driver and Jennings are suppose to be elite receivers, but they can't get open?
    If they are covered, then in the WCO there's always a checkdown.
    If not then THROW IT AWAY.
    Wait! That would count against his stats.
    Rodgers is playing NOT TO LOSE or look bad.

    Re: will the vikes lock first

    In a weird way I hope the Vikes don't clinch the division early. I hope we win every game but I hope Chicago/Green Bay stays close. I want to get one of the top two seeds and I don't want them to get complacent after winning the division.

    In theory, MN can clinch in the next 5 games if they win them all.
    If MN wins 5 of 8 and one of the wins is against the Bears I believe they clinch the division.

    I might be wrong, but I could swear if the Vikes beat the Lions and Bears in the next 3 weeks, they will have locked up the division.
    Vikes would be 5-0 in the division at that time and none of the other division teams can beat that.
    The other 6 games will be to obtain HFA.

    Thus, the Vikes will probably clinch in week 12, but a loss to the Bears in MN would mean that it could come down to week 16 if Chi wins all other division games.

    It depends on what the Bears and Packers do.
    In order for us to clinch with a win against the Bears, the Bears would have to lose all three of the next games, and the Packers would have to drop two of the next three, with us winning all three.

    Vikings' magic numbers:

    Against the Bears: 6
    Against the Pack: 5
    Against the Lions: 2 (next week should take care of that!)
    The earliest we can possible clinch is week 11.
    But I think more than likely it will be week 13 or 14.
