"the vikings cant afford to lose the next two games. the jets should have calvin pace, revis, and santonio holmes back soon......i'm worried about the jet game." (From Vikings message board)
Vikings are not a good road team in Primetime.
Right now they are one dimensional.
Jets are very good at stopping the run.
Cromarty could guard Berrien with a kid in each hand.
Pool & Wilson will take Shianco out.
Revis will send Harvin to the bench with a migraine.
Vikings running into a BUZZSAW!
Jets Offense is rocking
Jets defense gets Revis & Pace back (Pryce gets his 2nd game)
Jets special teams are really solid.
Jets want to stick it to the Media in Primetime.
Jets stadium will be SOLD OUT & SHAKING.
I'm foretelling a lot of praise from Gruden during this game, he knows talent when he sees it & this Jet team is stacked.
The Minny 'O' is NOT clicking yet. Maybe the Old Man should show up to training camp someday and workout. I don't see them suddenly clicking in the meadowlands in prime time. I think the Jets have a real good shot of taking this one :yes:
don't underestimate favre....this is a very good vikings team but with that said, the jets should win...if they eliminate peterson it could get ugly...folks...yes we're becoming "that team"....this W will go a long way to proving that.
The Vikings are a run first team, especially with Rice out, and the Jets are very good against the run. Everyone knows Favre will try to fit some throws into some tight spaces, giving guys like Cro, Pool, Leonhard and Revis (if he plays) chances at INTs.
While the Vikings are stacked in the middle on their DLine, LT and Greene are both capable of turning the corner on the outside and making people miss. Keller is a matchup nightmare for any D, no one on the Vikings has the size to keep Braylon contained in the redzone, and Cotchery and Holmes will make plays underneath and can make yards after the catch.
The only thing Minnesota has going for them coming into this game is that they have had two weeks to work on their timing with Favre and the WRs and two weeks to prepare for us. Other than that, all signs point to us to win this game.
I wanna see us stop AP and force Favre to win the game. We know how he does as of late when the pressure's squarely on his shoulders. If we can get to him and knock him around the way the Saints did in the NFCCG, we'll force him into bad throws and hopefully come up with some picks. I have a feeling Rex will have something fun dialed up for old Favre from a defensive stand point.
before the season this was a meeting of 2 possibly elite teams, but the Vikings right now don't even look like a top 20 team. their fans should be scared, that team is playing poorly right now. they have Adrian Peterson and not much else.
