The Viking Lounge
« on: August 12, 2012, 01:48:00 PM »
A place for Vikings fans and any of our rivals in the NFC North....what I think is the toughest division in the NFL.  3 playoff caliber teams, and a Minnesota team that could surprise some people if they stay healthy, and improvement is seen at QB and in the secondary.

The Viking Lounge is also a nice dive bar in my city.  Here's to a exciting NFL season! cheers

Try living in Iowa, 44.  I swear that some people have Vikings, Packers, and Bares gear in the closet, and they just dress according to who's winning.  Never saw so many Pack fans come out of the woodwork after that last SB win....good people though.

You guys will have some representation here!

Keith, 1hotchev, a few others.

Great news...Vikes took AP off of the PUP list...he participated with the offense in walkthroughs this morning...I just hope he isn't rushing back(pun intended) too soon.  Too much pressure on Ponder with him out of the lineup.  We saw that last season when he went down....teams were just going after Ponder every down.

DL, it will be a tough division this year, if Cutler stays healthy, and the Lions stay out of jail. drveby  I read that the Pack have interest in Cedric Benson..not sure what his legal situation is, but he is pretty productive when healthy.

This division is great, 3 playoff teams and the Vikes, I'm hoping for Ponder prooving he is the future, All Day coming back strong, and I would kill for good line play.

Hey 1hotchev.
 You're right it will be a very tough road to the Division crown this season.  Packers are the obvious favorite but Detroit and Chicago are not far behind...then you drop back to Minnesota, who still has some pretty good pieces in place, and can count on high draft picks for the next couple seasons,  who knows?  I'm still not convinced with Spielman.

 time will tell, Spielman looked pretty sharp draft day, we will see, I expect a long season but I look forward to venting here.

1hotchev, that was one of the intentions for this place....to soak our wounds as the season goes on..who knows?  maybe a couple guys step up...I like the two ND TE's as nice security blanket for Ponder.  The real key is if AP stays healthy.

Wmich, I would say GB, Detroit, then Chicago and finally the Vikes.  As you said though they have to stay healthy and out of the backs of cop cars. drveby

Chicago and Detroit who finishes 2nd? If Cutler keeps his jersey clean they win, if the DL get to him I like our chances
