Yes, not having fans present creates a competitive disadvantage. Especially for teams that enjoy a significant advantage from having a loud, raucous home stadium. The Vikings provided definitive proof of it on Sunday. With no fans at U.S. Bank Stadium to disrupt the Green Bay offense, Aaron Rodgers and company sliced and diced the Minnesota [more]

Florio is still full of it. Not having fans in the stands is NOT a competitive disadvantage. It creates a more level playing field not a disadvantage. But the home field team should still
have a slight advantage. They are after all, at home. It is simply not as big of an advantage as they are used to having.

Florio is a bitch.

As for the Vikings surrounding the most points in their history in an opener to the Packers:

Quick Reality Check


The Vikings scored 34 points against the Packers.

Great offensive shows are great, but rarely repeatable. The Packers will need improve on defense as the season moves forward.

I prefer the stat of the 43 points being the most points any Zimmer Vikings defense has given up... of course the old record was 42, but that was set in Zimmer Vikings first meeting with Rodgers back in 2014 before he got to make it indepth his.

As for Flirio's excuse, I think context is key, if he means it's a disadvantage from what a home team would normally have, then he's right, if he meant there was just purely disadvantage, then he's being a crybaby making excuses.

Vikings only scored 10 points through 3 quarters...

But yeah, teams that don't get.behind with run the ball more.and better QBs might be able to do more than Cousin and good OLs will give us hell, especially if we don't have Clark.

You are right as usual. However, a team that requires excessive crowd noise to be a good team really isn't a good team.

Again you are correct about the defense. MN may have scored 34 points but the Packers were up by 2-3 scores for most of the second half. Right or wrong the Packer defense was coasting. They stepped up big time in the 1st half when it mattered more.

Qualifying the Vikings 34 points is like the fairy tail king that believed he was wearing cloths. The fact remains that GB had 34 points scored on them.

I can guarantee that the GB Coaches have not conveniently overlooked this point. Much attention will be paid correcting weaknesses that the Vikings took advantage of. GB's Defense should do well against Detroit, but they will face a much better Saints team on the road in week 3.

Someone claimed Zimmer said the Packers played a different defense in the 4th quarter, suggesting why they were able to rally in the end... so the defense took the foot off the petal.


Also don't you dare over look the Lions! Kenny Clark is injured and they have Adrian f****** Peterson and love to run the ball, plus the Packers CBs could cover Lions WR Kenny Golliday last year until he got injured... the Lions will surely be looking to run over our defense like the 49ers...

Which yes running over our defense like the 49ers has become a stupid, annoying cliche but with powerful linemen is the Lions preferred methods and RB Peterson has given us hell over the years...

We won both games against the Lions by the skin of our teeth last year.
So I’m not taking anything for granted.

Amen. There are no bonus points for a larger winning margin.

When it comes to tie-breakers, points can factor in though.

dfosterf (21-Jul) : 1 light pole climbing, a couple of river swimmers, 1 crowd surfer, and only 3 shot during the celebration. Church-like behavior by NBA fan standards

Zero2Cool (20-Jul) : That comes to you from Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter
Zero2Cool (20-Jul) : Rodgers declined the offer, proof it’s not about the money.
Zero2Cool (20-Jul) : This off-season, the Packers offered Aaron Rodgers a two-year contract extension that would have tied him to Green Bay for five more seasons and made him the highest-paid QB and player in football. R

dfosterf (19-Jul) : They moved (replaced) that tank in order to make room for an undisclosed expansion to Lambeau. There is a lot of (humor) material to work with here in the upcoming shareholders meeting
dfosterf (19-Jul) : The construction workers in 2003 put a sign on the old tank that read: "Minnesota Vikings locker room"
Zero2Cool (19-Jul) : We have Bears locker room under the parking lot?
dfosterf (19-Jul) : Plus we moved the 400,000 gallon poop collection tank to under the player parking lot, so we have that going for us as well!
