Farve Watch and a Prediction

I'm having computer issues, so no big preview post before today's game. I'll be at the game though, rocking my new Antoine Winfield jersey and singing "Skol Vikings" after the Purple score ("Hail to the Redskins" has nothing on "Skol Vikings"). I've managed to get a working computer, so I'm going to start my Farve countdown and make my predicition for the game.

First off, after being intercepted twice against the Bears, Brett Farve only needs to throw 21 more interceptions to pass George Blanda (277 INT thrown) for most picks thrown in a career. He can set the record this year--he's thrown 23 or more interceptions four times in his career. I wonder when ESPN is going to start putting up a fancy graphic over his INT highlights, like they do when Barry Bonds hits a home run?

And my prediction: Vikings win 17-10. The Vikings' defense is dominate, the line opens up some holes for Chester Taylor, and Travis Williamson steps up and has a good day, in support of Brad Johnson, who plays a smart game, out dueling Mark Brunell.

Hope you are right on your prediction of a Vikes victory, Tbird! I'm out of the country for the next three weeks but by the time I return, I expect nothing less than a 4-0 record. Ha!

have fun at the game!
