Once again, the ground rules for the Game Threads:
-Thou shalt not promote illegal feeds of today's game, or I shall kick thy arse to the curb until the game is over. Thou hast been warned.
-Thou shalt make an attempt to keep the swearing to a minimum. Understandable that it will slip occasionally, but do try to limit it.
-Thou shalt not feed the trolls. Rather, thou shall simply point them out, and they shall be banished to the fires of Mordor. Or Wisconsin. Whichever we feel is more harsh at the time.
-Thou shalt not bait the fans of other teams into trolling.
With that, the Minnesota Vikings will attempt to do something today that they have not done in their entire existence. . .defeat a team named the Colts on the road. They went 0-8 against the Colts in Baltimore, and they're 0-2 against the Colts in Indianapolis. All seven victories over the Colts in Vikings' history have come in Minneapolis.
With Brian Billick doing this game, maybe he'll bring Gerald Allen with him. That would give the Vikings a huge boost.
Last week's game against the Jaguars was exciting. I could do without all that excitement today. However, with this Vikings' team, victories never come easy. . .usually, neither do the defeats.
Also like last week's game, this week's game is between two teams that nobody is really expecting a whole lot from. Hopefully the Vikings can do what it takes to get a victory this week, and put themselves 2/3 of the way to last season's win total.
Enjoy the game, ladies and gentlemen. We're about 90 minutes from kickoff, which means the inactive lists should be coming down just about any time now.
