WEEK 8: Minnesota Vikings @ Cleveland Browns Discussion

Post by 808vikingsfan » Wed Oct 25, 2017 6:54 pm

Headline from the last meeting between the Vikings and Browns: Third-string QB Hoyer helps Browns stun Vikings

Looks like Kizer is getting the start.

Let's hope the Vikings are taking this game seriously.

Cleveland will be without LT Joe Thomas and I just read that Myles Garrett was placed into concussion protocol today. You'd think it'd be shocking for him to get the green light to play on Sunday. Something to keep an eye on. He's a beast.

Kinda hope he plays, I never see any Browns games up here, and he is special. But then again, I'd rather have a win before the bye.

3:30am Kickoff here in Hawaii. Do I sleep and wakeup for the game or do I just stay up all night?

I am really looking forward to a Vikings victory in London. It's another opportunity for the defense to prove how truly great it is. SKOL!

This should be a good game for morale. Should be an easy win, *should be*.

EDIT - Bridgwater may be active in London, reports about slippery grass concerns not true. Also, Case is suffering a chest injury?

If it was me I would eat a big meal and try to nap around 10. Wake up at 1:30 and get a good pregame buzz going.

With it being 9:30 for me, I'm just gonna have whisky for breakfast :thumbsup:

That game was Hoyer vs. Ponder. Hoyer was better by a significant margin. I remember posting the pictures to prove it.

Ditto on your last point!!!

You're kidding, right?

The Vikings aren't even going to "do London." All I've read about is that they're going there for football and nothing else.

This team is focused. They're motivated. They're in first place, and they have the experience of last year's disaster to draw from. That's not to say they won't lose another game. But if they do, I highly doubt it will be because they don't take an opponent seriously.

I hope so. This is a good test for this team. See how focused they really are. If you remember last year, I think the team started believing the hype. The shirts came out and it was downhill from there.

Everything I'm seeing, hearing and reading from the team indicates to me that they are determined not to let that happen this year.

Here's where I'm optimistic. In 2015, the Vikings won by playing well late in games. Last year, they didn't play well at the end of games, and it cost them at least 3 wins, maybe more. This year, they're playing some of their best football in the fourth quarter.

I believe this team is going to take advantage of an overmatched rookie quarterback in London. I look for a dominant win.

Yeah it really sucks. I would sleep a few hours. I'm going to miss the game, I need to be up early on Sunday. At least it's only the Browns...

Lmao. Nothing like a good ol food coma for a nap.
Here's hoping that the Vikings are treating this as a business trip.
