Simple question: Can we beat the Cheatriots in our house?

I think so. But I suspect Jacksonville might have something to say about it first. This is not a dominant Patriot's Team. The Defense is has weaknesses and the offense is not as potent as it has been in the past. Not saying it would be easy, but I'd rather play this version than the '16 squad.

I'd rather see us play PIT than NE.

Yes. No doubt. I think they matchup very well with New England. Minnesota's defense will give Brady fits and NE's defense is down quite a bit from where it usually is.

Anyone who wants to beat the Patriots has to rush Tom Brady. If you can put pressure on him and hit him you have a good chance to win. I think this Vikings team could definitely do that but it would be difficult no doubt.

Offseason Goal: Draft durable, tough, intelligent offensive lineman who are dependable technicians and avoid penalties aka drive killers.

Gronk would be my biggest worry. They'd need to dedicate Barr to him on almost 100% of the assing plays, but that hurts given how effective Barr is at blitzing. Kendricks will get eaten alive by Gronk..Same with Sendejo.

I don't think they make it to the big game this year.

Hit Brady and take Gronk out and you win. Simple as that. When Gronk has bad games, they lose.

Those assing plays can make or break a team.

That's okay because if Barr gets within five yards of Brady the yellow flag will already be in the air.

Isn't that the truth.

It could be. How about Sonny Bono?

No, its about the Super Bowl, which has nothing to do with Sam, unless something bad happens to Case.

Hoo boy. Hopefully Zimmer can keep these guys focused and not reading their own press.

Why the Vikings are a Super Bowl Favorite
They say defense wins championships. And over the last nine post-seasons, the #1 defense in points allowed has not lost a home game. Pittsburgh and Seattle each lost a (neutral site) Super Bowl during that stretch, but no #1 defense has lost a playoff game at home, according to Pro Football Reference statistics.

And when the #1 defense in points allowed also has a first round bye, they have made it to the Super Bowl every time that’s happened (5 times) over the past nine years, and won it 3 times.
