Dude, that is so cool. What a day for your 7-year-old! My dad took me to my first Vikings game at the old Met in 1969 when I was 9. The Vikings beat the Colts 52-14, and I was hooked!

Hopefully you get a blowout Vikings win for your child's first game.

Yeah I get SF or Raiders if not Dallas or Denver

Never a Vikings game except when Farve played
for them or a prime time night game.

I got it worse than all of you, I get THE N.O. Saints EVERY WEEK plus usually Tampa Bay or Atlanta. I can't stand all three TEAMS. And for some weird Reason they show the Patriots almost every week and Green bay ALOT. Green bay Vikings game will not be on TV THIS WEEK but the Packers have been on TV here all of the first five weeks

I don’t have a good feeling about this game the league
is already In full blown Rodgers love affair mode.

If our defense doesn’t play lights out and we don’t
run the ball at will, or both I think this game could
really kill our chances at the post season.

Sounds like you're being punished for something.

And still thet can't figure out why ratings are down. Both Fox and CBS should be able to show two games EACH WEEK. Screw "leave the people wanting more", don't give more we lose interest.

Don't hate on my Buckeyes. Some of the best Vikings went to Ohio State.

That was cool. Enjoyed watching that and learning.

Also glad that the Vikings are one of the few teams who have figured out how to combat this. Doesn't mean they'll win Sunday, but my guess is they'll make life difficult for Aaron Rodgers.

Agreed. That was really, really interesting. I hate that GB is one of the pioneers for this, though. It is...grr...smart.

Thanks for posting that! Excellent analysis; got me excited to see if we can succeed with our pass rush today. The key to beating GB is hitting Aaron early and often. H

JA always seemed to be able to get to Erin, or hurry him with his throws. We need to contain him though too, the guy is a freak when hes moving. I think we can have a big game from both Griffen and Hunter. Hopefully no offsides on Grif.

The guy is amazing and may go down in the end of his career as a top 5 quarterback of all time.
