An Open Letter To Stupid Viking Fans

Dear You,

You know who you are. You’re the one booing the second an interception is thrown or whenever the Vikings just don’t quite meet your expectations. I’ve been wanting to write this for quite some time; last Sunday we played the Packers and many of you showed your faces giving me the ammo I was waiting for. Our Vikes, being on a winning streak and all – I’m sure you expected them to do more than they did, right?

Twenty minutes south of Green Bay I watched the game from my house and could clearly hear roars of ‘GO-PACK-GO’ throughout the entire fourth quarter …because all of you stupid fans left. 

Did you not want to face the Packer fans? Can’t handle a little grief? Were you just that disgusted that you couldn’t bear to watch another second? Trying to beat the traffic? …All stupid reasons. I don’t give a flying shit what the score is with 8 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter… why are you leaving?!

Friendly Tip: Just don’t go. Save yourself the misery and fake fandom.

Listen, I’m not unreasonable. I also don’t enjoy being a Vikings fan 100% of the time, it’s not always fun. Hell, let’s be real, watching them kick ass in the first half only to be a completely different team when they come back from halftime sucks. I get it. Do you know what I hate more than even that, though?

Being associated with you stupid fans.

I live in Wisconsin – if there is one other Viking fan that’s in the general vicinity – we’re lumped together and I don’t appreciate it. The Vikings have the worst fans in the NFL (that could be an exaggeration… I didn’t look it up) and 79% of you only support them when they’re winning (another made up statistic).

We lost against the Packers… what about before that? The Vikings won five games in a row for the first time since 2009. We’re still playoff contenders. Our team is a talented group of guys with crazy potential and the coaching is finally where it needs to be. We play our biggest rival to defend the North Division and you let a bunch of Packer fans take over in your house. That’s gross.

While I think the Vikings deserve that new stadium… you stupid Viking fans do not. Maybe with the extra bells and whistles you’ll enjoy your time more. Meanwhile, I’m going to start drafting a letter to whoever is in charge over there – maybe they can work on some technology that can drown out your fairweather, wishy-washy-boos so the team… that you’re there to support don’t get distracted…by their fans. 

You’re dumb.

-A Non-Stupid Viking’s Fan.

SKOL.

 

Onside Chick: Vikings Vs. Packers Prediction

The last time the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers dueled, it ended in a 26-26 tie. Prediction: That will not happen again… 

Offensively Speaking…

The Minnesota Vikings have a lot to be excited about after Sunday’s win against the Falcons.  Rookie QB, Teddy Bridgewater threw for 317 yards and ran five times for 27 more. His calm demeanor and mature movement in the pocket, certainly doesn’t scream, Rookie!

As good of a game as it was for the Vikings on Sunday – Let’s not forget that the Green Bay Packers are 7-1-1 in their last nine games against the Vikings at home &… they do not need stellar performances by a rookie quarterback to get their fans excited; they have Aaron Rogers – who recently told fans:

R-E-L-A-X…He’s got this.

Since Adrian Peterson has been out dealing with his legal woes, Viking running backs Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon have had a good run… (pun intended).  McKinnon exploded out of the backfield for 135 yards last week and Asiata added three rushing touchdowns against the Falcons. This week, these two get to go against the less than stellar Green Bay defense – who has given up 175 yards on the ground… per game.

Packers running back, Eddie Lacy rushed into the end-zone for the first time this year securing 1 out of the 4 touchdowns Green Bay scored against the Chicago Bears last Sunday.  It’s safe to say, Green Bay may not a running team… but they don’t need to be to get a win.

Because, the Packers have him & Jordy Nelson… & Randall Cobb.

Defensively Speaking…

The Minnesota Viking’s overall #1 pick, Linebacker Anthony Barr seems to know what he’s doing with 2 sacks so far & Free Safety, Harrison Smith made his intentions clear in the 4th quarter against the Falcons by sealing the the Viking’s win with an interception.

The Packers defense has struggled this season, but they managed to hold their own against the typically high scoring Bears offense last week. The packers have key players on their defense like Clay Matthews who intercepted Jay Cutler & Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix who had 5 tackles, all on his own last week.

Prediction:

It pains me to say this as a Minnesota Viking Fan…but, I have to be honest. The combination of playing at Lambeau Field & Teddy’s minor ankle setback… I can not sit here and say I think The Vikings will come out victorious.

Green Bay Packers:  34
Minnesota Vikings: 27

I’m expecting Mr. Rogers to sling the ball & connect a few times. I mean, obviously…

I think Mr. Bridgewater’s game will be less smooth than his game against the Falcons. If he can stay as collected as last week & the offensive line continues to protect him though…

Who knows?

One more prediction…

We will see this.

Fun Fact: The Packers–Vikings rivalry is noted for being very balanced. In the first 97 meetings, the total offensive yardage, points scored, wins, turnovers, and time of possession are all within 5% of each other; these are the closest margins for a rivalry longer than 15 years.
