Too bad the Bears didn't hold on to win that last night. and Rodgers missed a bit of the game with an ouchy knee.

Got to take it to those jackwagons at the oldest piece of shit stadium in the NFL. Hallowed ground my ass.

Its PUCKERS week!~ What the f--k happened to the TalkVikes I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? This could be the greatest week of our lives, but you're gonna let it be the worst. 'Ooh, we're afraid to talk about Rodgers injury and the pack weekenesses, we might jinx something... Well, just kiss my ass from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Rodgers, he's a dead man! McCarthy, dead! Clayroid...

That's the spirit !

I picked the Packers to win this game before the season began, but am now liking the Vikings' chances.

I like playing a good team (the Packers are, when Rodgers plays), coming off a narrow win. I also like it when the Vikes won the previous week, but there are a lot of mistakes they will see on film and want to correct.

Hopefully this leads to a kick @$$, dominant Viking's win.

Rodgers or no Rodgers, it doesn't matter. If we play our game we will leave Lambeau sitting atop the division with a 2-0 record and the chesseheads will be crying in their beer.

The Vikes' D is too much for the Packers UNLESS the Packers can scheme a quick-hitting nickel-and-dime type of strategy that mixes in lots of misdirection in the running game (Barr fell for misdirection like my dogs following a treat in my hand last week). Assuming the Pack utilize this type of strategy, can Zimmer counter or will he continue to rush 4 and play a soft zone similar to the NFCCG? If Zimmer can adjust and manage the clock and the final four minutes of the half better than we saw in the week 1 then the Vikes will win by two scores. If not, get ready to hear about 'The Great Aaron Rodgers' and his latest come-from-behind miracle as an underdog at home.

Watch the play where the 49er guy got hurt running into his own guy. Barr is right there in the picture in the dead center of the field unable to change direction to pursue the running back going to Barr's left after O-line all go to his right. He's literally stuck to his spot unable to change direction.

I believe the D will play better this week and not let tight ends run free and the line will get pressure on Rogers so he can't stand back and pick us apart. The O should play better as well I like our chances to win this game

This is a MUST WIN for Green Bay. Vegas is no longer taking bets. Speculation is that Rodgers has a torn MCL. He can get it repaired now and come back after the bye but will run into the Rams and the Patriots. Green Bay will essentially be pushing all their chips into the center of the table on Sunday.

Wow! That is huge! I wonder if he plays with the injury can it do more damage?

Not to the MCL. But, its not like he cant tear the knee up even more. But, more likely, becuz he's stationary, he could suffer another type of bodily injury.

If he does indeed have a torn MCL, as David has suggested, they need to sit him. Like for real. Theyre flirting with big time danger of their 140 million investment.

If Rogers misses 4 to 6 games that may have an impact on the packers making the playoffs

I talked to my nephew who lives in Minnesota and he said Rogers is not practicing with the regulars he is practicing with the injured players for what it is worth

All I gave was speculation based on rumblings. Sources you ask? A huge gambler with his ear to the ground. (not me lol)

IDK I just watched the so-called experts say pretty much the opposite.

Saying that we need extra D-backs in the game, and keep Rodgers in the pocket? (Which is what we usually do)

Makes sense to me that Rodgers won’t be able to get through those gaps left by Griffen/Hunter when they pin their ears back off the edge.

Frustrates me when all they do is cover their gaps when they rush Rodgers like they usually do. Nobody gets off the ball quick.

IF aaron plays, and IF we knock him around early, we win this game without a problem. He seems to get rattled if he has to pick himself off the turf a lot. And, the pack defense looked slow and disorganized last week. Cousins, Cook, and the gang should have their way.

Since going 0-5-1 against the Packers, the Vikings are 4-1 against Green Bay and have not given up more than 14 points in any of those victories.

adams being questionable with a shoulder injury peeked my curiosity, Rhodes needs to press and be physical at the line.
