Here's a little PH tradition that I bet some of you were not aware of. Smile

I think the Packers will edge out the Vikings.

Magnifying glassass: Man! I wish I had your confidence on the Viking game. I see an awful lot of inconsistency with this team and all its injuries. Still no definite line-up for the "O" line and the "D" line looks pretty doggone slim to me. Lot of holes need filling and the guys they need are not available.

Its not so much confidence as much as its a accurate prediction Smile We dusted them last year 34 - 0 and our team is very similar. They upgraded their DL, but they also got worse in the run defense in the process.

We have a QB who's not a future HoF'er, but I feel he's still efficient enough to get the job done because he won't throw the ball to the other team as often as the previous guy.

I'm extremely excited for this one. I think it's going to go down to the wire, probably a field goal to end the game. Should be a really good one. I have some doubts, but I have to stay positive.

27-24 Packers.

I don't think this game will be close. We either blow them out or they blow us out.

We blow them out by scoring early and scoring often, then AP gets tossed aside for Jackson and it just gets worse for the Vikes. Mike McCarthy continues to hammer them and by halftime, the game is over.

They blow us out by turnovers. They get pressure because of our weakened OL and start forcing turnovers. It becomes like that cold Bears game when we just wish the dang game would end.

I see a sloppy, defense-driven game. We'll intercept Jackson twice, and Rodgers will be sacked 3 times - but not by Jared Allen.

TD toss to Jennings early. TD run by Grant late. 1 FG for IceMan Crosby.
AP scores on a long run, but the rest of his day is "meh" at best. Longwell gets 2 easy FGs after our defense turns the Vikes away in the redzone.

Packers win 17-13.

We have to stop peterson because they have no passing game.

Run the ball hard and often

establish the run and jennings and driver will get open.

Lots of field goals.


We have had a little trouble in the red zone, and our defense bends but doesnt break.


23-13 The Good Guys.

I think this is a good call Pack.

For me, reading the comments here I think many have followed this team so closely that the problem areas become "glaring" while the reality of it is the opposition has their "problem areas" just as well. We just don't follow the other guys enough to get over-hyped about where they fall short.

Of course we are worried about our "O" line but then again this the same group that went out in game three when we were in the MOST game LIKE mode of any time during pre-season and actually played the BEST three quarters of football of all four games. The rest of the time it's been rotating chairs in there.

I think at one point Arod was something like 18 for 22 in that game. I'll take that.

Our "D" line has been a little soft on the run but then again how many plays have Pickett and Jolly been in there together? Not many.

We're going to be fine. Nice to hear Hawk was back at practice.

Or receivers are TOO GOOD for the Vikes DB's. Our eleven defensive starters playing for real are TOO GOOD for a team with one threat.

Let's not make it more than it is. Our twenty two as whole are better than theirs and and our other twenty three on the sidelines are WAY better than their backups.

Blah. Now I'm nervous. I think our WRs can cause headaches for the Vikes DBs all day long.

But I also think the Packers' running game + O-line play isn't as polished as it should be going into week 1. Add that to a D that I think is still struggling to get back to it's level of play last year... and yeah I don't have a good feeling about this one.

Vikes win 24 - 17.
