Week 5 Titans @ Vikings
 
Trap game. Good coaches have their teams ready for these kinds of games, lets see if Frazier can do it.

I'll say Vikings 27 Titans 24

And by Vikings @ Titans I mean Titans @ Vikings.

Can you change that djp?

Done. Thanks for making the threads this year.

Going to the game today. Bummed that we don't get to see Locker, but i've only seen hassle-wassle in a pre-season game a few years ago.

Agree that this is a trap game (how weird is it to say that about the Vikes this year?), but we should be able to walk out with the V.

Baroot Baroot!

Yeah I'm nervous about a game. Its the first game I really feel like We should win but that scares me. Hopefully we can just shut down CJ and Ponder continues on progressing.

Have fun at the game today. Skol Vikings!

Jesus ******* christ I hate these third down checkdowns.

yo123 10-07-2012 06:33 PM

It's hard to tell how much of it is the Titans offense but man our defense looks amazing today. 6 first downs through almost three quarters.

The secondary continues to be studly. Chris Cook is picking up where he left off last year.

We are gashing them right now. I like how physical we have been all year.

Nice win today. Run game looked great. Pass game was decent. Ponder's first INT wasn't all his fault but it was a bad throw. 2nd INT was his fault but he came back out and rebounded. Still can't believe we are 4-1.. I had us winning 4 games this year to be honest. Really loving our D this year so far.

And it was nice to see the secondary shrug off Smith's early ejection. Especially considering, while the D-line got pressure on Hasselbeck, they only sacked him twice.

Ponder could have had 3-4 picks today, at least. Needs to clean that up still. Other than that, very good game, although the Titans are seriously horrid in every facet of the game.

Our defense has been so rock solid this season. Alan Williams deserves a lot of credit. Impressed to see that the absence of Harrison didn't hurt us that badly

Anyone know whats up with Jairius Wright and why he can't get on the field? I was pretty excited about him but he's been basically our only disappointment in our draft class this year.

For all intensive purposes he's redshirting. Doesn't make sense to me, but apparently he is really not ready (according to Vikes beat writers on Twitter)

Pelissero said that he has not been a good practice player, and then with his injury in preseason lingering into the first couple weeks that didn't help. I agree with you on the draft class, though. That's been a big reason for our 4-1 record so far.

Heck of a game, though. Defense was great other than at the end when the game was over and they clearly let off the throttle, but they still played well then. I was worried that the safeties would be exposed after Smith was ejected, but Sanford and Blanton played well.

Other than Ponder making a couple dumb mistakes and actually paying for it this game, the offense was great. I would have liked to have seen Peterson get a few more carries, but there was no need to and he apparently tweaked his ankle on the 2nd play of the game, so even less of a reason to give him more carries. There's really nothing more that can be said about Harvin. The guy is an absolute ************* stud. His two TDs were amazing. The jukes on the second were deadly and the power on his first is amazing for someone his size.

Didn't even know that Smith was ejected until i got home from the game. Couldn't hear the ref make the call, i just knew he wasn't out there. But, i knew he was out there when he flattened the Titan right in front of me.

Watched Locker stare down the wasted Vikings fan who relentlessly harrassed Hassleback the whole game.

Overall, a good game to be at. To be honest, it was a quick game & not overly exciting, but still fun.

Last thing.... Percy is now more valuable to the Vikings than AD. One guy can not bring him down alone. Gotta Love Percy
