Get ready for another large dose of "dink & dunk" from washed up old "Double-chin" Donovan. If us homers are lucky maybe Musgrave will call something other than having A.P. run straight into the middle of the line for his patented 1 yard gain!!!

PG, just give it up already. You're clearly no fan of the Vikes and your schtick is simply old. I don't know whom you root for, but it' s too obvious which team has caused you the most wounds over the years. Lick 'em and move on with life. I say Vikes 24, Cowboys 22 tonight. McNabb runs for a TD, Jenkins grabs one for a score, and a late pick seals the victory.

I think the Cowboys will be hurting units when were done with them. I think this is the game where we start to gel a little. I'm looking for turnovers favored in our direction. H hopefully Romo gets fluttered a lot and throws some interceptions and I foresee Romo breaking his right wrist on a huge sackarola. SKOL VIKINGS!!!

Vikes should not have any problems with the Cowboys and aliens

Can the Vikings block Demarcus Ware? That is the only thing that I'm wondering about this game. If they can't stop him then everything will fall apart offensively. Also, I'm willing to bet Bernard Barrian has no significant contribution. Any takers? He's not fast enough to get open and too weak to make catches in traffic. Anyone disagree? I'm willing to bet $. CUT BARRIAN NOW!!!!

@purplegod- I LIKE UR SCHTICK! some people take life too example wld be MR...needs to lighten up...if ur this uptight during the preseason...this yr is gonna be a tuf one to follow for YOU...


The only thing worse than purplegoo's comments is the fact he thinks they are worth leaving. You're camouflage isn't working here, perp. We don't believe in the ol' hold your enemy close. If it was up to me, I'd punt you down the field out of play. With fans like you, who needs the packers.


Preseason = The 3 P's. Practice, Protect and Pretty much ready for the season to get under way!

In preparation for tonight's game, the Vikings have pulled out all stops. They had a full pad scrimmage against Our Lady of Perpetual Hope Home for the Aged and Infirm. Although the Vikings lost by three touchdowns and were shut out, they almost scored several times.

a lot of you worry warts are saying that the O-line is going to be a big problem this year. keep this in mind. that was Tarvaris Jackson last Saturday night in a green uniform running for his life. and that was Darryl Bevell on the Seattle sidelines as their offensive coordinator. enough said! Coach Frazier has brought in a whole new offensive coaching staff and he has our quarterback of the future in the hands of Bill Musgrave and Chris Johnson. Childress and Bevell aren't around anymore. Leslie Frazier is making all the right moves around here.
