    No, not me. I'm too fucking old to be chasing that mofo around the field.

    But my boys in purple have a damn good shot at it.
    Quit smoking and I bet you could!
    Done! Didn't I tell you if we got a win yesterday, I'd quit today?


    Although chasing him around the field with a cig hanging out of my mouth would be funny as hell.

    (I loved that part in the movie, "The Replacements" I believe, where that FG kicker would kick the FG's with that cigarette hanging out of his mouth.)
    Did you really quit? I better not see you with a cig in two weeks!

    Yep, the patch has been on since yesterday.

    As for the new vice after this Sunday, it will be celebrating to excess.

    Way to go singer, the wife is trying to stop right now also, and it's not easy. Now to stop Farve...

    We must keep the ball on offense and control the clock. This does two things it keeps Farve off the field and it keeps our defense fresh. We have to mix blitzes very carefully, mix zone and man coverages, and disrupt the packs recievers off the line. Farve is a better passer than Rivers, who missed some throws that Brett would make. The pack are a timing offense and if we can disrupt that timing with pressure we can cause mistakes. So we'd better have our A game going again. The wild card is getting some turnovers, and as the road team we have to get some turnovers, and knock Farve down every chance we get.

    Key play of the game.
    Bigby intercepted a deflected pass from Holcomb with 1:11 remaining in the game.

    Trust me my friens, even though we lost that game, we were alot closer to winning than some PUKER fans want to admit.

    Sure the Packers have come along pretty nice and are probably a better team than when we faced them the first time, but I contend that we are a much better team than when they faced us the first time this year.

    Things to watch.

    Time of possession.
    If we can keep the hated PUKERS on the bench a bit longer than we did last time, Lord Favreeeeee will get antsy to make a big play.
    Hopefully the odds are in our favor for him to finally start chucking them up like the Brettly of old.

    He is ranked
    as the 8th best passer with 2406yds, 13 TDs and 8 INT's.
    Again, he still makes mistakes.

    With our team first in the league in the rushing catagory (AD 1036 yds Hell Parker is closest one with 768 ) we should be able to run at a pretty good clip.
    One of the PUKER posters said something along the lines of limiting ADs yards to 6 or 8 or something like that.
    Hell, I will take 6 to 8 yards at a pop, send CT in for a series or two to give him a breather all the while keeping the PUKER D on the field.


    That should spell doom.
    Fresh legs against tired leggs = TD for AD/CT in my book.

    B-wade had 83 yards against them last game.
    Seems they are just as bad at the slant route as we are.
    Throw a few of those in with a heavy does of AD and thier vaunted D might get a bit soft.

    Another PUKER fans comment was that AD would be slower in the grass to make his cuts.
    Hmmmm. Unless I'm mistaken, AD will be running on the same grass as the PUKER D will be on.
    Seems to me that AD is faster than them on turf no matter what the composition.
    ;D

    Can we convert 3rd downs at a better clip than that game (3-15).
    Again, this will keep lord Favrrrrreee off the field.

    PUKERS seem to have pre-snap penalty issues.
    Hopefully we limit our and they continue to have issues in that area.

    The PUKERS have some significant injury issues that might or might not be resolved on D.
    The biggest IMHO is the loss of CB Collins who will be replace by the rook Aaron Rouse.
    I know this kid from his time at VT.
    Not a bad defender but he is/has had injury issue in the past as well as this year.
    Lets hope he has to deal with B-wade (slants) or match up agains Rice/T-will deep.
    Might be something to exploit if they are cheating up to stop AD.

    Vikes QB play.
    We will have to have good play out of our QB whoever that is.
    This equates to no turnovers, with a passing game that gets us 3rd and long conversions when needed.
    Nothing fancy, just enough to keep them honest, as we did against SD.


    Anyway, I just don't see this as the big blowout or eventual loss that some have contended on here.
    I look forward to a very rewarding win in Lamblow against the Hated PUKER team and the groveling of thier fans that dare show thier face after the win.
    ;D

    SKOL Vikings.

    Re: Can you stop Favre and the passing game?

    Key play(s) of the game: Our moron coach keeping AP on the bench almost the entire second half of the game after gaining over 100 yards in the first half.

    After this week's game, maybe... just maybe... Childress will realize that it is possible for AP to break a game open in the second half.

    What a moron our coach is. It's sad that some of you still stand up for the guy.

    I thought either you or V would ping on that one.

    Getting pretty bad when I can type something and know pretty close who is gonna say what.

    Guess I need a break.

    If the Vikes lose it will be because of the Lambeau "12th man" (the guy in the striped shirt) or the guy in the headset (Childress), not Farve (spelling corrected). Remember how Farve started the last game by flinging yet another pick? Hmmm... bad story line, let's call it back. Apart from the obvious ref bias, I'd hope that Farve could play forever.
    Yep, blame it on the refs.. I seem to remember bad calls going both ways that Sunday.. but pick out the ones that favor you.


    You can try to dismiss the argument, but you know it's true. That game and many games end up being decided by ONE possesion, so, yes, it was decided by the refs. I've seen it too many times over the years and almost always when playing the Fudge. I've seen it in the Vikes favor when playing the Lions in particular but never to the same extent. Revisit this unprecedented apology: http://espn.go.com/nfl/news/2002/1211/1475659.html . You can bet on it being a factor.
