Dominating performance by the Vikes! 4-1, top of the division...looking good! Anyone see how Green Bay did today? Anyone? Can I get an update from one of the Packer trolls? SKOL VIKINGS!!!

O line and D line continue to dominate. Another building block for a young team. Titans might not be that good but it was still a dominant performance against an NFL team. I'm sure some people are going to be calling for Ponder's benching because he threw 2 picks but he bounced back just fine. That's why he has potential in this league because he doesn't get down when he makes mistakes. Solid team effort today.

Nice to know Ponder will get chewed out for a few bad throws in a win. 4-1. Call the Titans a bad team but at least we lost to Indy in OT, not in regulation like the Pack did. Lol! Excuse me while I get some cheddar to chew on. Unless the Colts didn't leave any behind lol! Discount double-choke!

just a great dominating performance. i was watching her in chicago, surrounded by Bears fans, and while the Bears were kicking the Jags, they were also commenting on to each other on how strong the Vikes look. Ponder bounced right back and made super sweet throw to Rudolph - that's what I needed to see to know that this kid's for real.

There has never been a better football team in history than this year's Minnesota Vikings. Actually, there has never been a better sports team, period, than this year's Minnesota Vikings.

@allforwon - "Relax SKOL fans! You will never get by SF" and "Pack 4 Superbowls" and "Queens 0" ..................................................... Already beat SF this year! Did the Pack? As for the Superbowl wins, fine! Live in the past! Resting on laurels caused GB fans to go into a funk, just like you accuse the Vike fans of. Welcome! Nice to see you joined us. Bring your hanky! Sore loser.
