Fine, Let's Get This Over With.

If you care (and I think I'm just about tapped when it comes to caring about a washed-up hick who held my favorite team hostage for the last five years), your predictions for the Vikings - Packers game in the comments.

My (brief) take: the Vikings are the better team; our run defense sux; and Favre won't throw enough picks to change the outcome. 'Queens, 28-17.

Favre throws 4 picks and the Vikes lose 31-17. I know, wishful thinking.

Pack wins after A-rodg leads the Pack on a 4th qtr drive to take the lead, only to see Favre (as he attempts to get his NFL record 856th 4th quarter comeback) throw a desperation pick to charles woodson to secure the Packers W 31-28.

It's obviously a very interesting matchup. Will Brett come out "fired up" like he has in so many other big games and overthrow guys leading to interceptions? I think that's the only way we win this game. I don't know what our turnover ratio is exactly(im guessing it has to be greater than +6 thus far), but I know we've won the turnover battle in all 3 games. In spite of that large and favorable t.o. differential, GB still barely squeaked out a win against Chicago at home, lost to Cincy at home, and let an absolutely atrocious St.Louis Rams team actually hang around. Conclusion.....the Packers are going to have to play out of their minds to win this game imo. Horrible GB O-line vs top3 Minn D-line, and a mediocre GB front 7 vs top 3 Minn run game. Minn 27, GB 20, but the game isn't as close as the score is.

TO differential is +8.

EMoney said...

Yeah that's what I thought. When your differential is that high, you have a pretty efficient offense, and have played 3 mediocre teams, you should be 3-0 and have beat them all pretty badly.

Slow claps for E's analysis.
Where were your college picks this weekend, E?

You are a Baffoon said...

LeRoy Butler said that the Pack will win tonight...I'm going with that analysis he owns a Super Bowl ring. Eric you can throw all the numbers and stats out there you want. In the end it's a rivalry game where all the spreadsheets and excel formatted B.S. doesn't mean diddly. I foresee a close one down the stretch with another possible game winning field goal opportunity by Mason Crosby to win...

D3 - First of all, your slack a$$ didn't get your picks in until friday afternoon. Being that I have a social life and drinking habits, I was unable to do it friday night and/or saturday morning (naturally). Second of all, you can thank your lucky stars I didn't get them in. I didn't see how you fared, but I'm pretty sure that if I got my picks in on time I would have been smoking Cubans and lighting them with $100 bills on saturday night. Get your picks in earlier this week and it'll be on again.

I went 8-8, a HUGE improvement over my first two crap-ass efforts.

EMoney said...

Stats? Excel spreadsheets? It's black and white my friend. You (Baffoon) of all people should know that the game is won up front. Neither of which for Green Bay is as good when compared to Minnesota. Due to this, I'm going with Minn. I'm sorry that I'm not looking at this matchup through my green and yellow glasses.

This of course doesn't mean that I wouldn't love to see GB go into the Dome and absolutely throttle the Vikings....and put Favre on his ass multiple times in the process. WHO DEY! Wait, sorry (when in Rome).

GO PACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Vikings 17 Packers -3

After the Vikings kick a field goal in the final seconds, Brett Favre requests that it be subtracted from the Packers score. The NFL grants his wish because they love all the attention he has garnered for the league by flip-flopping the last several years... and because everytime he puts on a new jersey, "Hey, more money!"
