The fact that the vikings are looking to gain some sort of an edge on the Cardinal because their starting QB is hurt and probably won't start shows how desperate this club is for a win after showing their true colors by getting blown out by an 8-8 caliber team on the road last Sunday. Wouldn't it be nice if the vikings could actuallly bet a team with a winning record fair and square for once without relying on their opponents main starter being hurt.

I sure hope they don't expect a cake walk over the Cardinals. They could be a tough team to beat, especially if we make some mistakes. Hopefully our guy's come out on top. Go Vikes!!

Oh, oh, the Cardinals are just the kind of team that can blowout the Vikings,especially, if whomever plays QB for them on Sunday, can hit Fitzgerald for a couple of quick touchdowns.

prplstooge ... The 49ers are 5-2 and had no key missing starters. The Vikings are doing just fine given how young they are at so many key positions. Expect growing pains and enjoy what positive results they get. BTW ... they were 8-8 last year without RGIII, just saying.

8-8 caliber, not actual record ... sorry.

In today's NFL there is no automatic win as the overall talent level is so good across the board. On paper though, this looks good for the Vikes. The AZ D is very good, but if we can get in a groove, get some points early, that forces the AZ offense to come from behind which would be tough. Overall - pull out the same game-plan as we used for the 49ers and we'll be good.

If this is some sort of good news then the Vikings are in serious trouble. Maybe after we vote Ryan in as VP some of you will return to America's true team. Go Pack!

It's all about what the Vikings offense will be able to generate. We've seen our defense can win games by themselves, but will our Offense score? Trent Dilfer 2.0 should be good for his usual 1 passing TD in the game. GO #7!!!!

Arizona is probably thinking the Vikings might be a cure. This team, although improved, is not good enough to look past anyone.
