– Ponder has some experience in dodging live bullets. He also has faced the Packers and he did well. So well the Vikings almost pulled it off. I think going into the game at the Dome, to a man, people thought the Vikes would get destroyed. Ah. Not so. Lost by 6 with said rookie QB tossing two INTs.
– I liked the scheme from the defensive stand point in the last tilt. Keep everything underneath and don’t get beat deep. Mission accomplished last game. I mean technically, Jennings caught the ball “underneath” and then walked 70 yards into the endzone.
– Bye Week. Any time a team comes off a bye week I like it. You have had extra time to rest, extra reps, extra film, extra, extra, extra!
So in the end, I like the Purple’s chances this Monday night. So much so, I think I’ll go ahead and predict a Vike’s victory and not one of those moral ones… a real legit victory.
