Vikes vs Saints

I think the vikes are gonna be sneaky good this season..they have 2 great pass rushers on defense in Griffin and young star to be Danielle Hunter..some nice pieces on offense to in Cook who is gonna be real good, Diggs is a real up and comer, Rudolph at TE and Thielen a nice slot wr thuis season..Bradford is ok if the OL keeps him upright

Agreed Greek. Next week will be a battle. Vikes were a legit contender before the Bridgewater injury; they are trying their damndest to get back there.

I'd be inclined to agree, but it's the Vikings....you can pretty much bank on a losing streak to end the season or a total choke job in the playoffs.

That was some drive by Bradford there the last 5 minutes of the half. Some really great throws.

Note to Haley, no screen passes next week. These Viking corners eat them up.

The Vaccarro one is the only hit that deserved a penalty.

It appears we will have our hands full next week.

So Burns on Diggs? Haden let guy's blow by him last week...not sure if he thought he had help or still unsure about his responsibilities....or both.

Ben cannot have another mediocre Cleveland game against the Vikes. Bradford is shredding the Sinners.

That Vikings D is pretty nasty. Brees and Co. are making some things happen this drive though.

What's the most points ever scored by both teams combined at Heinz Field? We're about to challenge that.

Pure guess off the top of my mind, the Steelers vs the Vick led Falcons that ended in a tie has to be way up there?


Steelers packers as well with the GW laser from Ben to Wallace with no time on the clock also way up there id guess

Yes, it is the first game, but look at who are the top two rushers in the NFL thus far.

They are not Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles. No, instead they are two rookies drafted to be the future and that future is now. Their teams are not afraid to draft a young RB and play him from day one and EXPECT production. In Pittsburgh we have fans that say it would be IMPOSSIBLE to just let Bell leave and draft a rookie RB and expect him to be any good.

The KC Chiefs moved on from Charles, they drafted Kareem Hunt in round 3 (86th). He leads the NFL in rushing with 148 yards. The Vikings moved on from Peterson, they drafted Dalvin Cook in round 2 (41st). Cook is second in rushing in the NFL with 127 yards.

Yes, it is that damn easy to move on, to replace a Peterson, a Charles and when the time comes, even a Leveon Bell.

You really think our offense is going to contribute much to a record like that?

I think it's a home game, so the Steelers will play less conservatively on offense, and it's likely that will result in more points, especially vs a defense with an injured Xavier Rhodes and PI machine Trey Waynes.

Our defense is going to get shredded by Minnesota, unless there are some mammoth changes in personnel. We have no answer for Theilen. None.

Burns on Diggs, Shaz on Rudolph, Watt after the passer. The rest of the guys need to show up and not miss tackles like the last time we played Minnesota.

Under is the play this year.

It's gonna take Vegas 3-4 more weeks to adjust that the Steelers aren't an elite offense.

-7 is too much. It's going to get bet down and end up right in the Vegas zone which basically means they don't have a clue what will happen. Wouldn't shock me if we struggle big time to score next Sunday and the Vikes beat our ass.

Playing like a man possessed right now. He and Bradford have that AB/Ben radar going.

I never pooh poohed Thielen-- I didn't even know who he was coming out. I even watched some of his college games and didn't know who he was.

Although I wouldn't be entirely surprised with that result-- the Steelers are at home, and they call a completely different game at home, especially coming off that bullshit.

You would think we'd open it up more, but who knows with these guys.

Nothing would surprise me. I mean, just look last year at the difference in Philly then back home against K.C.

I do think Thielan gets 100+ yards easily.

Thielen has turned into a stud. He runs a 4.45 forty, 6'1", is 208 lbs., has great hands and has really worked on his craft. The way he's playing right now, he would easily be WR2 on our team.

No, it isn't. I think the Browns are on the verge of being pretty good. Vikings have a few really good players on D, but they have problems vs the run and their CBs are either bad or hurt. Everson Griffin is a beast but I think you can work around that.

Vikings got after the QB pretty good
Which means
Runs ups the middle, screens and things of that nature
