Awesome stuff, Kapp

I'll echo that Anthony Harris had the play of the game. Runner up was KC to AT. That forced fumble took 7 points off the board and erased momentum completely.

I like Case, however I cant help but think, with our WRS, our o-line and running yards per game a lot of average QBs would look good starting for us.

Definitely. Let's not forget the complete game Harris played. Not only did he make that incredible play, he led the Vikings in tackles and had a couple of nice pass breakups.

Think Mike Zimmer might be able to coach DBs?

Man, that Thielen TD ... I cannot stop watching it. I think I've replayed it about 25 times now. Case did a great job on that play reading the blitz and getting the ball out to his best player. Just a beautiful thing!

Underestimate this man.

I agree, which is why I would love to see what Teddy could do with it. But you really cant replace Case at this time. If he loses thursday though, who knows. The Detroit game is the must win game this year.

Absolutely. I've always been a Harris fan. Love his game.

I loved that AT juke for the 30-yarder almost as well. Broke an ankle. Beautiful to watch.

And how about Rick while we're handing out accolades? This is as complete of a roster as I can recall. Studs and depth all over. Best QB depth chart ever (Where's Jim?).

During the offseason, I compared Adam Thielen to Jordy Nelson. Same body type, same ability to get open. Thielen is actually faster.

JordysGhost absolutely laughed his butt off at me and ridiculed me for even thinking such a ridiculous thing.

Through 10 games in 2017
Adam Thielen: 62 Rec, 916 yards, 14.8 YPC, leads all NFL WRs in explosive plays.
Jordy Nelson: 35 Rec, 384 yards, 10.9 YPC, leads all NFL WRs in absolutely nothing.

Oh, and what was that final from Lambeau today? Oh yeah, 23-0.

The Defense rests.
Did JordysGhoast get banned?

Packer fans are calling for Callahan to start next week.

Case has been sacked once in 6 games.

I cannot fathom this. In my wildest dreams I could never realistically have predicted an offensive line turnaround this dramatic. I still can't.

Vikings are 4-0 this season when I'm at games. Willing to take donations to travel to all other games this season.

It's great to see people stepping up.

We're starting our third string QB and our second and third string RBs. Look at GB fall apart from just losing a QB. We lost a QB, about 10 linemen and an OC last year. Said it back then and I'll say it again, no team can survive that. But I think it's great that this team is showing that it can overcome adversity this year. Last years adversity was plain ridiculous.

Best I have felt as Vikings fan since 1998. Better all around team then the '98 team.

Lions vs Bears. C'mon Chicago, YOU HAD 1 JOB, 1 JOB! I mean look at the Ravens!
