  • Vikings at Detroit Week 2 Discussion

    This Should be a good test for our improved Pass defense mainly Marcus McCauley as he should be matched up against Calvin Johnson the most of the game. Martz offense is about timing if we can Play them physical and bump them off their routes we should fair well against them. Their O-line definatly looked improved last week but it's still not great we should be able to control the Line. I'll be looking to see if Robison can follow up a good 2 sack performance last week with some more this week. All in all i am very confident our defense will do very well against them. In the 2 games Last year against the lions kitna threw 6 interceptions against us. I think we should be able to nab 1 or 2 more this week.

    Offensively I expect a Monster game from Adrian Peterson Rushing and Recieving. If Artose pinner can put up 125 and 3 tds, and if the Raiders can put 92 Rush yds led by Lamont Jordan 70 Rush Yds 1td 4.7 Avg With their Crappy O-line. You can imagine what AD & and our O-line can do to them. This also could be the week to build Tarvaris some Confidence against a lacking secondary. I wouldn't at all be shocked to see Tarvaris have a good game.

    My Prediction: Vikings 30 Lions 14 With atleast 7 of the 30 comings from a Troy Williamson TD(Yes im predicting a TD by T-Will)

    Note: Vikings have not lost to Detroit in their Last 10 meetings. I wouldn't be shocked if it Ended this meeting but I honestly I just don't see it happening

    This one is a very interesting match up to me. It's basically our strength vs their strength and their strength vs our weakness.

    We didn't look good against the pass, against Joey Harrington and the only receiver group worse than ours. So it should be interesting to say the least.

    I expect Peterson to run well, whats the latest on Taylor? He would be a big out if he doesnt play, but at the same time, I like that Peterson is a real home run threat and almost prefer him as a single back.

    I expect them to score more on us, Martz wont waste time trying to run down the middle and Bell can certainly get outside. Be interesting to see if their OL can deal with the blitz because ATLs couldn't. That will be the deciding factor to me. If they handle the blitz and thus any chance we have of a pass rush, they will throw all over us. If they cant handle it, we win.

    Personally I cant see us scoring 30pts, if we do my fantasy teams with our defense will win ;).

    I see something like 17 to 10 for us. In a hard fought battle.


    Props to BK on the sig!

      Well as un-inspiring as our offense is that defense is just flat out bad. Last year we had 26 and 30 points against them in our two meetings we have a better offense this year so 30 certanily isn't out of the question but i based that prediction on the fact i think our defense will create a good amount of turnovers giving us a short field for our offense, or scoring themselves. Add that to the fact i think AD will have a monster game and i have 30 point prediction.

        Unlike most of the people on this forum (non-Viking fans), I see us winning. Our defense had the biggest effect on the two games last year. Kitna looked like a little girl, and we didn't even have a pass rush. I imagine more of the same this year, especially with better edge-rushers.

          i agree crazy, and oakland, who had the worst offense in the league last year, scored plenty of points against detroit.

          detroit scored 24 points off of turnovers on drives less than 35 yards last week against Oakland, they only had TWO drives out of 13 where they drove the ball longer than 37 yards....the Vikes did an excellent job of making Atlanta start within their own 25 all game long, IMO, if we do that and create a couple of turnovers to give us a short field, i definately see the Vikes holding detroit to 14 points or less, which i think will give us the win, their secondary is terrible (mccown threw for 300 plus yards) so i think our offense can do something this week....

            They don't understand just how badly we dominate the lions.

                  Chester is listed as Questionable so who knows if he plays it won't be very much especially if AD is having a good game.

                    update on Chester:

                    On Friday, the Vikings listed Taylor as questionable for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions, and coach Brad Childress said the decision would be up to the running back.

                    "Sometimes those things get better as they go," Childress said. "He's done everything he can to put himself in the position, so we'll see.

                    "We'll leave it up to him."

                    Asked if Taylor will travel to Detroit, Childress said, "I'm planning on him playing, so yeah, he is going to make the trip."

                      Do you guys think we'll run off the right side as much as we did against Atlanta going against Redding and White?? and if we do with as much success?
                      What if everyone simultaneously disobeys?
                      It aint a game if no one plays, oh.

                        Yeah, I think we'll go off both sides evenly today. I hope Peterson is successful. He should at least be able to get 100.

                          To be honest fellas, I see this week as another fairly easy victory. I just think that we match up fairly well against Detroit and see us taking the game by the score of 27-13.

                              Here's some things we need to do after this game:

                              1. Fire Brad Childress

                              2. Bench Tarvaris Jackson

                              3. Never let Ferguson see the field and put Sidney Rice in

                              4. Revamp the right side of our offensive line

                              5. Put some god damn pressure on the quarterback

                              6. Change our defensive scheme, because we can't cover for ****.
