Vikings: Pushovers?
 
Just wondering if anyonen else is worried about the opening day game like I am. Sure, the Vikings lost their #1 WR in free agency, but they have the best guard in the game coming over, right next to a Pro Bowl center in Birk. The running game shouldn't be too bad.

Their defense has also been steadily improving over the years. In addition, they added Chad Greenway in the draft who should contribute immediately. For some reason, I don't think this will be the blowout many of us are predicting. Thoughts?

I think this is a team we should beat. I don't think they are pushovers, but Brad J. has to be close to empty in the gas tank.
I see us pounding the ball for like 180 yds.

I admit that Brad Johnson is old, but he is a late bloomer of sorts. We must not forget that he won a superbowl, and with protection he can be a dangerous quarterback to face.

I still think we'll win the game...there have been too many changes for the vikes in the offseason.

We will win the game but don't expect a blowout. The Vikes will be ready to show that all of the distactions of the last few seasons are behind them. They will play hard and give us a good game but we have way too many weapons and I dont think their d is the stong point on that team.


on a side note, I heard BJ might hold out. he will be the lowest paid starting qb in the league. I dont think thats right being that he is a SB winning QB.

I think we'll win, but by no means will it be a blowout.

Let's see...

Brunell vs. Johnson = REDSKINS
Portis/Betts vs. Chester Taylor/Mewelde Moore = REDSKINS
Moss/Lloyd/Randel El/Patten/Cooley vs. Koren Robinson/Travis Taylor/Troy Williamson/Marcus Robinson/Wiggins = REDSKINS
O-Line = REDSKINS
Defense = REDSKINS
Special teams = REDSKINS
John Hall vs. Ryan Longwell = VIKINGS, I'll give them this one!

I get nervous about every game, in fact I get really nervous before some games because I feel like I'm not nervous enough. I guess I'm just a worrier, that's probably why my friends call me whiskers.

Half or quarter? ;)

We are at home, in a season opener on national TV and FIRED UP!!!

I think the Skins win, but it may be closer than you think. Chester Taylor was a good pick up at RB. I think he will be a pleasant surprise for them this year.

Buster, that looks real good on paper but that's why they line between the white lines my man. But your point is well taken!

[quote=paulskinsfan]The only reason Im nervous is that I think it will take a few weeks for the players to become confortable in Saunders offense.[/quote]
...and in the meantime the vikes defense may have figured out how to play up to their expectations.

I'm willing to take the players off of the board for this one.

Match up the coaches in this case. While Childress may turn out to be a very good coach, he'll be sitting at the grownup's table for the first time ever, matched against an offensive coordinator with more head coaching experience, a defensive coordinator with more head coaching experience, an offensive line coach with more head coaching experience, and inarguably one of history best head coaches. They will be in a stadium [u]full[/u] of Redskins fans (since the Vikings aren't exactly a traveling fan base), who will be Monday Night loud.

The Vikings will require perfection from themselves and mistakes from their opponents to win this if personnel was even.

OK, now put the players back on the table.

Jesus. Our guys are a lot better than their guys.

Redskins by 14.
