We usually play well against Minny but to do so in this game will depend on how over confident Minny is and how flat they are for this game. Nobody has much respect for us but we will always have a chance in games where the other team thinks it will be an easy victory and comes out completely flat for us.
I'm hoping they are flat and my prediction is Minny by 17-14 otherwise it will be Minny 45-17.

FYI guys the Lions are leading after 1.

Trivia: When was the last time the Lions were in the lead after the first quarter?

When was the last time we had a lead at all? Or scored first?


Matty S to CJ. BOOOSH! Many more of those to come.

Pettigrew has looked pretty good.

KSmith has had some nice runs and horrific runs.

Delmas has been shaky. Dropped an INT.

Brown looks bad returning kicks.

CJ has 5 touches. Not nearly enough.

Jason Hunter has been our best defender.

I think that ManaRam might have just taken over starting G position permanently???

My impressions ...
Backus was Jared Allens' beatch today.
Manram did looked good enough to start ... but that's not saying he was a Pro Bowler today. Still looking for that 100+ yd rushing back that IS NOT the other teams RB though?
Julian Peterson played with some fire that was lacking last week, Sam Hill was okay and may be more than the developmental small school player he was tagged with in pre-season. Still not getting CJ the rock enough. Why not 10-12 touches a game? Why?

That block Pettigrew put on Jared Allen early in the game on that 4th down was nasty.
