The only way we lose to them is if we have the AFC locked up already and we bench out starters. And that is very possible considering how weak the AFC is.

Peterson is missing a lot of blocks in pass pro. He's practically cost his team several plays.

Is he normally this bad at it?

It's just one game, sometimes teams show up flat (Green Bay anyone?).

Speaking of sitting our starters, if we end up resting against Indy at the end, it'd sure be a nice consolation prize to screw them over a few draft slots if we have to lose to them.

Default Re: Not quite as worried about the Vikings..

I thought they were pretty overrated, especially defensively. I think if there's anything consistent about them, it's probably their pass rush. Ponder isn't very good. AP is AP, a beast. Harvin is also a beast, but they don't have any other weapons outside of those two on offense. This game being week 16, I don't even think it'll matter the way the AFC is going right now. Hope it doesn't so we can rest our starters for this game.

If the goal is first seed, depending how afc goes..we may need to play starters and win all the way to end to lock up first seed.playing the afc chapionship game at home is a good advantage..

I was hoping they would make a game of it, but all I got was 1 great TD run from AP, and that was it as far as come backs.

Default Re: Not quite as worried about the Vikings..

Vikings are on the rise..but not a complete team yet. I'm thinking that they won't be a pushover at the end of the year. We are probably playing for homefield advantage so we will have something to play for most likely.

Don't undersell the Bucs. They could even beat the Texans on a good day. They are a young team finding their way who could just as easily be 6-1 right now. Heck maybe even 7-0, I can't think of a game they were blown out and had no shot of winning.

Let me review their losses (because I now live in Florida and have watched all of their games) ...

Giants (they were up big in that game and should have won that. As a real young team they just choked up and let the SB Champs come back. It took a monster effort in the 2nd half by Eli to pull this off.)

Cowboys (they had no business losing that game. They dominated the Cowboys for most of that game however Schiano was handcuffing Freeman. If they had an resemblance of an offense they would have blown out the Cowboys like they did the Vikes tonight.)

Redskins (I was at that game. They should have won this one too. However miscues led the them to giving the Redskins a chance and the Skins win it on a last second FG.)

Saints (Another game where they had a huge lead. Just like the Giants they let the Saints back in the game. This time they miraculously tie the game in the closing seconds ... but wait there is some stupid NFL rule where a defender can throw a WR out of bounds and eliminate him from the play ... so a penalty is called and the Bucs lose)

That's their 4 losses. So don't think the Vikes got thrashed by a horrible team tonight. The Vikes can still beat the Texans if the chips fall into the right places.

My only concern with them is Jared Allen being a dirty SOB trying to put a kill hit on Schaub, same thing with Suh in Detroit. Hopefully we have the home field locked down by the Minnesota game and we can let Yates go then.

The Bucs quit on their coach last season. IIRC the Falcons were up by over 40 points by halftime last season. The Jags beat them by more than 30 points I think.

They are a different team this season. Look, I am not trying to say the Bucs are as good as the Texans. In context of the OP, I am just saying they are not some doormat that the Vikings got rolled by last night. My end point being that game doesn't prove the Vikings are horrible because they got bounced by the Bucs.

However as someone else mentioned the Vikings game is weeks away and anything could happen before then.

Default Re: Not quite as worried about the Vikings..

And don't forget our only loss is against an NFC team, look at the stats for the AFC, they are not looking good against NFC, hence the parity over there also. I would be very cautious about getting too confident about the Vikes and esp the Bears, besides that we need to worry the most about NE.

I think someone said something similar about the Packers & the Colts.
