    A little slow for opening game week... so why not a poll?

    How many rushing yards will Adrian Peterson have this week against our bolts? Over or under 120 yards?

    I'll save my opinion for later in the day...

    PS: If anyone has the actual betting line on this, post it up.

    I say 130 yds rushing, but we still win. Hoping I'm wrong about the rushing yards.

    When it comes down to brass tacks and basics, the Chargers look like they have a lot of work to do on rush defense. They weren't closing gaps; they weren't blowing up runners; they weren't making solid tackles. Adrian Peterson was made for this defense, to beat it, and I hope that will not be the case. However, I have little confidence as it stands now.

    I'm thinking under because we will key on the run early with McNabb still learning their offense. Late, we will be up and running will not be an option.

    But I'm an optimist this time of year...

    I'm not that worried about what the other guy is going to do. What about our guys? How many yards will Rivers throw for this game? How many yards will Mathews & Tolbert chew up? How many sacks will our D get on the Vykes?

    Well, how he does is kinda a byproduct of how our d is doing, but since you asked:

    How many yards will Rivers throw for this game? Over 240

    How many yards will Mathews & Tolbert chew up? 80 and 50

    How many sacks will our D get on the Vykes? 3

    Thanks Skuzzle, I was referring more to way we post threads, makes it look like we are worried (chicken little syndrome) about what the opposition can do, than in our own team's abilities...

    As long as he has more drops than RM24, I'll be happy with that. (and of course we have more points after 4 quarters)

    After what we saw from our run defense in the preseason he might threaten his own record. He will gash us in the first two quarters before the purples are forced to play catchup. 140 yards. 1 TD.

    Greg Manusky's debut as our Defensive Coordinator, and the beginning of his job application towards becoming an NFL Head Coach. (our last 3 DCs became HCs, Wade & Rivera in the NFL & Ted Cottrell in the UFL)

    AP may break off on a big run or 2, he'll get his yards but by in large, we'll contain him when it counts (3rd down, & red zone plays) and limit the damage he does, forcing McNabb to try to beat us with his arm & aging legs - he won't be able to!

    Adrian Peterson: 115 yards, 1 TD
    Ryan Mathews: 85 yards, 1 TD
    Philip Rivers: 276 yards, 2 TDs

    Chargers 24, Vikings 10

    Oops, didn't see his. I'll change mine to somewhere just under 100. I don't think he breaks 100 and I'm making a bold prediction that we don't give up 100 yards more than once this season (unless it's in garbage time.)

    just as long as he does not break off any huge gains, and we hold him to 2-3 yards a carry I hope he does get 50 carries. That just means the Vikings eat the clock up on offense, and we score 35 + points, we will win.

    He sets a new NFL single-game rushing record but PR bails us out in a wild one, 59-52. :tup:

    If we score 35 points, I expect to see less running from Peterson and more passing from McNabb.

    and thats why I said what I did, if they cant throw it and have to rely on Peterson to win it, as long as he gets 2-3 yards a carry, we will win.

    If we can score early and often then the vikings will hopefully abandon the run and have to rely on Mcnabb throwing the football.

    It's AP. 120 yards is about right, I went with the over. He'll have a good game rushing, but he can't beat us by himself.
