    Vikings: Strong start on the road could set tone


    Overall, a pretty easy schedule. Chance to start out 5-0. Do have a buzz saw with Steelers and Ravens back to back. What do other Vikes fan think?

    i was just going to say that. the early schedule looks promising, but 5 of the last 6 could be very tough. I do like the schedule in Nov with 3 straight homes games vs Lions, Seahawks, and Bears.

    Re: Vikes fans

    I don't think it looks very easy....

    Out of conference games against Baltimore, Arizona, Carolina, Pittsburgh, and the Giants? That's a lot of playoff teams.

    according to espn we have the 2nd easiest schedule this yr. I guess Lions 2x, Browns, Bengals should be 4 easy ones right?

    From year to year it's hard to tell which teams will be "easy" in the NFL.

    I think we get the lions twice, split with the pack and the bears, beat the browns, bengals and seahawks. There is 7 wins. We would need about 3 tossups to make the playoffs.

    Yeah, I guess it balances out with some "really easy" games.

    Re: Vikes fans

    What is the word on the Williams'? Are they going to be suspended to start the season or not? That would make a huge difference in how we start the season.

    The Vikes get the Browns, Lions, 49ers, and Packers in the 1st 4 weeks. Not the best running teams in the league, so the loss of the Williams wouldn't hurt as much. Hopefully the back-ups could hold their own if need be.

    2008 Rushing YPG:
    17th - Packers
    26th - Browns
    27th - 49ers
    30th - Detroit

    The Pack don't need to run to kick the Viqueen's arses. I'm trying to find out a way to hate Minnesota without hating Sage. It's about the same as having Kampman on the Packers.

    The Vikings also have last year's 2 Superbowl teams on the road while the Bears have them at home. The Vikings have the toughest schedule in the division which makes sense given the NFL's policy of assigning schedules based on standings.
