    weiiird…I went 4-0. And I’m a Patriots fan, so it kind of hurt to be right.

    Well done. I should have seen the stinking Eagles game coming. Plus, I HATE the Cowboys. Maybe I WANTED the Jets to lose and HOPED the Pats could win. I WANTED to see Favre vs. Packers again.

    Less emotions this week so maybe I’ll do better. Interesting note, both animals lost on Saturday and won on Sunday.

    Tough to make an argument for Minnesota based upon personnel, so hopefully the hate will save you on that pick!

    The Vikings have so many weapons on offense and their playing at home. Jared Allen will put the pressure on Romo and force him into some mistakes.

    I know you think the Cowboys have the most talented team in the league, but the Vikings more than stack up with them.

    QBs – Edge Favre and his experience
    RBs – Vikes
    WRs – Vikes Rice and Austin are equals. percy and berrian are better than roy and crayton
    TEs – slight edge to witten, but shiancoe is a much better red zone threat
    K – Vikings

    Allen and Ware are equals
    Pat, Kevin, and Ray Edwards make the Vikes front four superior

    Without EJ the Vikes may lose the LB rankings

    You probably have them in the secondary.
