It's still the NFL - I take nothing for granted.

If they were playing the University of Minnesota - then I would agree.

Can I just say that I'm peeved because I had Minnesota +14.5? Surely they cover in a snow bowl, right?! Come on, NFL, you pansies!

Browns beat Saints 30-17 on the road on Colt McCoy's 2nd start, then beat Pats 34-14 earlier this year.

That's true, but I seen the Vikings last week and they have no offense or defense. Atleast the Browns had a offense

Peterson can be a game changer if he plays.

The degree of difficulty is high for the Vikes to win - but you never know.

In the McNabb administration, there were plenty of times that we played down to our competition. That's probably in my mind more the anything else.

they trot out "fan safety" and that's supposed to be untouchable. you know, it's for the fans "saftey" and that's why we did it. Don't even bother questioning it.

it's like "it's for the children", you can't argue.

nice whopping 12'' of snow you got there in Philly, that's a dusting in Green Bay. Or Buffalo. Or denver. or MPLS/St Paul.

heck, they played games this year in worse conditions. Just last week in Minnesota. I really didn't realise Philly was so tropical but that would explain all the palm trees and flip flop wearers in winter there.

I mean there's only a subway station right across from the street.

if people believe in conspiracy therories I can't really blame them.

TVSG - Don't doubt me. This is still the NFL. Take nothing for granted. Learn it. Expect it. Live it.
