1st time on here.being a pitt fan i ahve to say i am also a nfl fan, and I have watched all the vikings games, and it seems everyone is stacking the box against ap and the vikings are only using him as a decoy he is getting carries but they seem to be just to setup the pass and favre is on FIRE he is doing everything to make the team win I think they are 2nd in the nfl in redzone in scoring. Thier dfense has looked really bad but its only when they get way ahead. They are probably the most complete team in the nfl right now. our steelers can beat them at home but the vikings offense hasnt scored less than 27 pts.

So then we just need to score 28 points and hold them to their low. No problem.

They should be 4-2 right now. My wife is a 49ers fan and they won that game in the last second on a very lucky pass and a bad call by SF's def coord, who instead of covering the endzone, decided to blitz and Baltimore's kicker won the game yesterday for the Vikings.

I like when we play teams that are unbeaten . We seem to have a knack at giving teams their first loss . Remember the unbeaten 49's ? That was one of my favorites . They went with one loss to the super bowl , instead of unbeaten . Nothing sweeter than giving an unbeaten their first loss .

how can you say they are lucky.. there is a lot more to a game than one play. example the 49ers had a fluke blocked fg for a td and a fumble for a td so whose lucky. every wants to say they ar elucky byt yet they are arguably the best team in the nfl with the saints!

A self proclaimed Steeler fan and he's slobbing Favre's knob before his own team's QB who is currently making his own case for MVP with record breaking pace stats...

http://www.nfl.com/stats/player

1st in yards
2nd in completion %
4th in rating
2nd in yards per game
1st in avg yards per attempt
1st in avg yards per completion
1st in 20+ plays
2nd in 40+ plays
1st in 1st down %
2nd in 1st downs

The only stats where he isn't completely lights out is his TD/INT ratio, where 3 of his 6 INTs aren't necessarily his fault and a few TD opportunities were missed due to drops.


also note, Hines is the league's leading WR... :tt03:



And as far as complete teams go...

http://www.nfl.com/stats/team

well, our offense certainly isn't too shabby - 5th overall (2nd best passing), and our D, while not as good as we'd like is 3rd overall (2nd best rushing)... The Vikings don't even register in the top 5 anywhere on those 6 major categories, I guess they lost their one claim to dominance, their run D (the only major category the Steelers D was not #1 in last season). In fact, we're the only team to show up in at least 4 of those 6 categories.

my favorite unbeaten spoilers were when we deflowered the Eagles and Patriots in back to back weeks during the 04-05 season and did it in dominating fashion. Granted, the Pats unfortunately were able to get revenge on us but still, that stretch of 8 days was easily one of my favorites in Steeler history.

Heh, I was AT that game. I remember Ray Wersching (kicker for the 49ers) had a chance to put the 49ers ahead with like 2 minutes left, but instead he drilled one right off the upright. Then the Steelers marched right down and kicked a FG of their own. Probably one of the more dramatic endings I've seen in person, even though I was like 6 years old at the time.

SF was about six inches away from being the first team to go 16-0, which in hindsight, I probably would've liked a lot more than the Patriots doing it.

As I said in another thread, Favre can be quite dangerous if he's on his game and he has a nice compliment of receivers and a TE to toss the pigskin to. Sure he's a drama king, but he can still burn you if you give him time to do so.

The Steelers need to be in his face ALL GAME, as Favre hates being pressured and is prone to making mistakes when under fire. The Vikes aren't unbeatable and neither is Favre.

and miss out on them going 18-1? I don't know about you, but with hindsight I actually prefer that they went 16-0. They can never brag about it because they lost the Superbowl. Its the same deal as the Bengals winning the AFC North in the 05 season, but on a much greater scale. Let them brag about if they're stupid enough to try.

Man, I thought this was a Steeler forum. Its funny to see all the man crushes on Favre and the Vikings. I'll tell you right now...you say the Vikings are the most complete team? The Colts or Saints would tear them apart. The Vikings are the worse unbeaten team left. Lets see how they do against us this weekend. On another note: I wish some Steeler posters here would be as adamant and supportive of the Steelers as they are the Vikings. Its comical to watch them praise our opponents and rip into the Steelers.

You ignorantly mistake "man crushes" for FACT and TRUTH. Anyone who discounts Favre or the Vikes this coming Sunday needs a lobotomy. You want to keep staring through those black 'n gold colored glasses - go right ahead. I'm a diehard Steelers fan and though I believe the Steelers can handle Favre and the Vikes, I'm not guaranteeing a victory against - YES - one of the best teams in the NFL thus far this season.

Key matchup will be Timmons vs. their TE Shiancoe (sp?). The Steelers only need to worry about him in the passing game. Their WRs are average at best. This game will probably be low scoring like the Titans game in wk 1. I still think The Titans have the best Offensive line theyíve faced.

The Vikings are stacked, and Brett (as much as I dislike his diva-ness) has found a new lease on life in Minnesota and is playing better than he ever has in years. They're unbeaten for a reason. This will be the first real challenge the Steelers have faced all season.

No, he's not trolling, he's just bringing up legitimate points.

Sure, some of the Vikings wins were close, but saying they're lucky to have won is just wrong. As a Steelers and Pens fan I have to hear all the time about how lucky they were to have won their championships and a good number of games...and that's just bs. Good teams create their own luck.

All the OP is doing is bringing up concern about how well Favre and the Vikes are playing right now...and it's all true. Outside of the Ravens, the Vikes will probably be the hardest team on our schedule this year.

I guess I missed the rule though that you had to register at a certain time to be able to have a valid opinion on this board lol.

This sets the table for a barn burner and Ben is up to a shoot out with Favre. How cool is it going to be for Ben to play against one of his heroes and have a shot at beating him?

As much as I hate seeing our D getting a run for their money, this could be one for the ages.

Like Drew Brees lighting up the #1 defense in the league at the time in the Giants for 48 points or the meltdown by the Vikes that took a choke by the Baltimore kicker to win? If you're gonna have man crushes at least make it a decent team. You think the Vikes are good? I bet you thought the Jets were good too when they came out of the gate at 3-0.

I said nothing of "LUCK" sonny boy . I said we have a knack of making the unbeatins , beatin . We gather steam as we move along . We are movin along , and nothing would be sweeter than knockin the vikes from their unbeaten rank .
We are the "CHAMPIONS " , until someone proves to me otherwise .
There are a couple of teams out there kinda smoldering as of now . NEW ORLEANS ,VIKES TO ME ARE JUST LIKE THE BENGALS . They will simmer down right where they belong .
It's a long season mi amigo , and never forget it .
I would not be surprised if Peterson had a season low in rushing this sunday .
I would not be the least bit surprised if Bret had a season worst game
Picken up the steam as you go along is the key to a teams success . Danger lies in peaking a little too early .

This is one game that I circled in the preseason as a possibility of a loss. Only because Favre seems to be pretty good early in the season. Not saying we can't win, but we have to have a very good defensive game against them. They are supposed to have a great defense, but Ray Rice absolutely torched them. So our offense should do ok.

I think the offense will do a great job and the defense will play good enough if not better to keep the vikings under 28 points. I say we win this one by 7.

Vikings are a good team. At the beginning of the season I had them beating the Steelers, but after the last few weeks of seeing the O-Line play better I think the Steelers can win this one. Even if itís a shoot out, which I donít want. I rather see a score of 27-10 Steelers win with Mendenhall getting 100 yards. My only 2 concerns on this game is the Vikings front 4 and the Steelers pass rush. But the Vikings showed some cracks last week they the Steelers should be able to exploit.

I'm not saying that he's spewing lies.. but that he SMELLS like a troll. It's one thing to go on a oposing fan board and fly your colors and comment about how your team will beat them, and it's another to hide pretending you are a Steelers fan and profess your love for the Vikings and Favre.

I have no respect for the latter.

Some clues to trolledom:

He refers to the Steelers as "Pitt".
He refers to Roethlisberger as "Roth"
His name is jarodthegood -- as in nordic viking

Yeah, their good but not one of the best IMHO. The Steelers will beat them. That's right I said it and I'm sticking by it. I'll go one step farther in saying it'll be a shootout but I believe our secondary is better and that will be the deciding factor. Favre gambles and Troy will have 2 picks, maybe even a pick 6.Hell, Ike might catch one.:tt02:
