Adrian Peterson elaborates on his belief that the Vikings can win it all

Getty Images

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson recently told Peter King of TheMMQB.com that Peterson thinks his team can win it all this year. Appearing on Friday’s PFT Live on NBC Sports Radio, Peterson elaborated on the basis for his belief.

“First, it starts up top in the organization and some moving pieces that have taken place the past couple of years,” Peterson said. “[General Manager] Rick Spielman is doing a great job when it comes to bringing quality guys that fit our system. Along with coach [Mike] Zimmer and his great staff I feel like we have that core system and guys in the right place to be able to accomplish great things.

“As far as players, I feel like we  have a young group with some veteran guys mixed in and some young guys that really can play some good ball. What really excites me the most is our defense. Our defense jumped up the charts from the previous year to this past year and what those guys have accomplished just as a unit.

“Offensively just going off of what we were able to accomplish this year and we really weren’t the type of offense that we wanted to be. But you look at that and we were right there in the mix of really going on to play Arizona and end up in the NFC Championship game with what we had offensively. So with the moves we’ve made this offseason with [Alex] Boone and [Andre] Smith and then some of these young guys that really have a lot to prove, that we drafted. Then the veteran guys we have on the offensive side for us, receivers and things like that I feel like the sky is the limit for us. That’s why it’s going to be important when training camp do come around, even though I don’t like [training camp], to see how the chemistry and guys mesh together. So I’m pretty excited about it.”

One of the young players with something to prove on offense is first-round receiver Laquon Treadwell. Peterson seems to be excited by what the rookie will be able to do for the team.

“I watched some film on him and he’s a big body receiver,” Peterson said. “He does a great job at positioning himself and snatching the ball at it’s highest point. He does a great job when it comes to run blocking, too, and the kid’s from Chicago so he has that dog mentality in him and you really don’t find that with too many guys at receiver. But just watching him during the draft process I know he was disappointed that he didn’t go lower. Of course, I was happy that he ended up right there at 23 for us. So just kind of looking in his face and looking in his eyes I could tell that he was upset and that he has something to prove. There’s nothing better than that, having a young guy who for the past two years was the best receiver that they had on the charts. Then . . . you run a slow 40 time and you have a couple guys jump past you. I’m glad it happened selfishly because we have a tremendous athlete and a player, but just looking in his eyes I really felt like he has something to prove to the world.”

Peterson has something to prove to the world, from a team and individual perspective.

“I’m the type of person I like defeating the odds,” he said. “I’m sure there’s gonna be a naysayer this year, ‘Oh, he’s 31 what is he gonna do?’ and in my mind I’ll go ahead and prove them wrong again.”

If the Vikings accomplish what Peterson thinks he can, they’ll be proving a lot of people wrong.

  1. “But you look at that and we were right there in the mix of really going on to play Arizona and end up in the NFC Championship game with what we had offensively.”

    Huh? You lost in the first round because what you had offensively couldn’t even remotely cut it, only managing 3 field goals in the first round at home after winning the NFC North.

    The Vikings QB didn’t even throw half as many TD passes as Carson Palmer did during the season, yet only trailed him in INT’s by 2.

  2. This team is definitely going in the right direction. Already NFC North Champs. Teddy had performed very well in the domes he has played in. Nobody has ever won a championship with the mindset that they weren’t going to win it all. Go get em Adrian!

  3. He would be saying this if he was on the Browns too. He’s hit the age 30 ceiling and it’s all downhill from here.

  4. Another Vikings article, another comment section where the first comment is by a GB “fan”.

  5. Really can’t rip on anything that happens. Every given Sunday. If you don’t have faith in your team just quit playing cuz that’s an attitude no teams want.

  6. Adrian Peterson talks to Peter King then elaborates on PFT Live and he’s running his mouth? If Florio didn’t ask him to come on this story doesn’t exist.

    Peterson is excited to be on a talanted, well coached young team. He’s anxious to see how good they can be. Can Aaron Rodgers please say something about someone somewhere? The bias must be restored.

    Too much Vikings news. I want Packers 24/7 again. Why can’t we have that? Aren’t they the best?

  7. If Aaron Rodgers went off like this, the Viking fans would be trying to get their vitriol out of their mouths so fast, drool would run off their chins.

    This guy should just shut up. He is trying desperately to ignore the elephant in the room.

  8. If you are riding on a rookie receiver you got rocks in your head Adrian. He will show flashes if good but gonna take a season to see it. Pie in the sky with baby hands.

  9. As much as I cheer for the underdog…

    … I will say it…

    … Minnesota will not win a championship with low character adrian peterson on the roster.

  10. They lose in the first round and he thinks they were just about in the NFC Championship game. Sharp as a tack – or is it “As flat-headed as a tack?”

    So it’s not just Bridgewater. The whole team is great at being mediocre.
    —————————————————————-
    It must really suck to be unable to beat a mediocre team at home with the division on the line. What does that say about the losing team in that scenario?

  12. Anything Adrian Peterson says is like listening to a 4 year old only he is a 30 year old that beats and whips 4 year olds.
    He is a disgrace to our team and our fan base. I’m ashamed of this child abusing scum. The Vikings are an embarrassment!

  13. The beloved Green Bay Packers are attempting to win a NFL record 14th world championship this season.

    The hapless and tasteless MN Vikings will try to win their first.

    What does that tell you?

  15. What exactly is he supposed to say: “we have no chance of winning the SB”? Every player on every team should believe they can “win it all” in the upcoming season.

    ==================================
    It says that the losing team was upset, which occurs from time-to-time. In this case, this was confirmed when the Division Champ lost it’s playoff game at home (which is what they are known for, an NFL record 28th playoff loss), while the team it beat went on the road to win it’s playoff game.

    It tells me you’re full of crap with the 13 world championships. Only 4 have been since the 1960’s, the modern age of football, the other 9 were when you played teams like the Chatanooga Choo Choos and Iowa Haymakers before there were more than a dozen football teams. And your greatness this season remains to be seen.

  18. “It must really suck to be unable to beat a mediocre team at home with the division on the line. What does that say about the losing team in that scenario?”

    That they were without their best WR and CB and had a Guard with a bad back trying to fill in for their injured LT? I don’t know – just trying to help.

  19. Rarely does this type of bravado play out as expected. Its one thing to predict in the week before the Superbowl that you’re going to win (ala Joe Namath), its quite another to make that prediction before training camp even starts (remember the Eagles’ “Dream Team”, the same one that didn’t even make the playoffs). If Peterson had studied history, he would see more similarities to the Eagles than the Jets.

    But consider the source, Peterson once compared playing in the NFL to slavery so its not like we are dealing with a deep thinker here. I think if Peterson devoted as much thought and energy to actually meeting and raising his own children as he does to predicting the future, the world would be a better place.

  20. IF they get to the playoffs he must believe somehow the other 5 NFC teams planes are going to crash before Bridgewater does. Even if that happened they would stand no chance of defeating the AFC team without being able to at least score some touchdowns. The Queens would be meat on the table for Pitt, NE or Denver, heck even Cinncinati or KC for that matter.

  21. This is even more funny than the time he compared Teddy Bilgewater to Tom Brady. Must be something in the water up there in Minnesota that makes Viking players, coaches, and fans all live in a perpetual state of delusion.

  22. Laugh all you want. Nobody thought Russell Wilson and the Seahawks could win the Super Bowl either. The Vikings defense is n0 joke and the offense is catching up.

  23. “It tells me you’re full of crap with the 13 world championships. Only 4 have been since the 1960’s, the modern age of football, the other 9 were when you played teams like the Chatanooga Choo Choos and Iowa Haymakers before there were more than a dozen football teams.”

    The Packers have won seven World Championships since the Vikings were formed. If you don’t want to count winning in NY against the Giants or beating Jim Brown and Cleveland as World titles, that’s your problem. The NFL disagrees.

  24. Wrong again, Linda. The Packers won 6 championships between 1929 and 1944.

    They won NFL Championships in 1961, 1962, and 1965. They won Super Bowls in 1966, 1967, 1996, and 2010.

    That’s 7 NFL Championships or Super Bowls since 1960- and that’s not counting NFL Championships in 1966 and 1967, prior to the Super Bowl game (Vikings’ fans, on the other hand, love to talk about their NFL championship prior to losing the Super Bowl to the Chiefs).

    Who’s full of crap now?

  25. The child beaters mouth is the gift that keeps on giving. I think his words are evidence that he’s getting extremely nervous with reality setting in that he will never win a championship as his career starts to circle the drain. So what better way to try desperately to offset that than echo the sentiments of the most delusional Vikings fans. Soon he will be in the stands with them.

  26. Well according to Vegas Adrian has a 1 in 18 chance of being right. New England 15-2 Seattle 9-1 Pittsburgh 10-1 Green Bay 11-1 odds. The difference between the Vikings and the other teams is an elite QB. If they had a QB the caliber of Rodgers, Brady or Roethlisberger their odds would be as good as these teams. I’ve watched Bridgewater play. He’s decent but he won’t win you a Super Bowl. The Vikes need an elite QB before realistically talking about Super Bowl championships.

    Yet another flawed argument. The fewer teams there are in the league, the more stacked each roster is with college talent since it was not diluted as much. So in reality, it made it even more competitive, not less.

    You also might want to check the names again. Teams like the Packers, Giants, Lions, Bears, Redskins, Rams, Eagles, Steelers, Cardinals,etc were in the league already. The only obscure names are the Yanks and the Tigers.

    You’re not really good at this.

  29. Frank,

    Linda is like most other petulant 8 year olds… she thinks if she just keeps on telling the same lie over and over again, people will eventually come to believe it.

  30. I’m pretty sure he said the Packers are chokers. AP has confident in Vikings, that’s what it takes to win it all. Nothing wrong with that.

  31. Adrian says he is the type of person who likes to beat the odds. With HGH, he has done that as a player, but it couldn’t help him beat the odds as a person.
    #playinginnfllikeslavery

  32. 1 SB win in 20 years, with HOF QB play. That’s all you need to know about the Packer team.

  33. On paper they look good, and have built from within (we all know free agent splurging doesn’t really work in the NFL). All the pieces are in place for a successful stretch of seasons… but they will only go as far as Teddy BH2O can take them. Maybe in a couple years they’re legit contenders.

  34. It is still kinda of early to be able to tell if the Vikings can win it all this year but I am pretty confident the Packer fans can eat it all at all times this year.

  35. I like how all these Packer trolls always refer back to the pre-Super Bowl era. News flash: nobody cares but you.

    Back-to-back HOF quarterbacks, and 1 SB win in two decades. Go ahead and tell me how great you’ve been since 1967?

    A damn shame all-world Aaron Rodgers is still going to waste in Green Bay. Guy should have at least 4 trips to the SB by now.

  36. “I just want to live long enough to piss on Lambeau’s grave.”

    ==================================
    Actually, that would be 2 in the last 20 years. The Packers won the Super Bowl that was played after the 1996 season (in 1997) as well.

    6 HOF QB’s have won multiple Super Bowls. 6 have won one- and 6 have won zero. It’s hard to win a Super Bowl.

    Ask your Fran Tarkenton- he blew it 3 times.

    The Vikings had a HOF QB, led by a HOF coach, put together by a HOF GM, with 5 other Hall-of-Famers in the 1970’s and couldn’t win a single Super Bowl. Their QB had a 14.1 rating in one of those games.

    They haven’t been back in 39 years.

    So what does a Viking fan do? He tells you about players that have won a Super Bowl, but they just haven’t won it enough.

    It’s called sour grapes. And for Vikings’ fans, they’ve aged to a fine whine.

    2 Super Bowls in 20 years, actually.

    But coming from a fan of a team that lost 4 Super Bowls, and a QB that lost 3 of them, that has the most playoff losses in NFL history, and has been around since 1961, your opinion means less than very little.

  41. Again, apparently according to cheesers, neither Vikings players nor their fans are allowed to express any optimism whatsoever without first bowing in honor to those to the East. If so, the usual suspects rush to comment faster than a Clay Mathews hair flick — the more pathetic ones multiple times. Then again posting any purple optimism is the formula to create site hits — that way cheesers have something to do on a Sunday afternoon once the car races are over.

    ________________________________

    That the 2nd place NFC North Packers and their fans will only have the past to keep them all warm and fuzzy. The times they are a changing’.

  43. People saying vikes can’t win because they don’t have an elite qb must have missed the last SB. One of the worst performances of a winning qb in history so it can be done. They lost a playoff game because their kicker missed a FG just like pats lost to Broncos on a missed extra point.

  44. You knuckleheads. All of you. Vikings fan here, just cracks me up how PFT gets it going. Nobody knows how the season will go. GB is strictly all Aaron Rodgers, he completely carries that team. Yeah TB has no arm, but last I saw that means very little for contending. AR hit some prayers but they were prayers and just luck shots. At least Minnesota has a team. GB is all AR. He goes down, that team is shot.

  45. Funny that as soon as someone mentions the packers loosing every home division game last year it’s all excuses.. Your obviously scared of what the Vikings are capable of right now when the main topic in the comments is how great the packers were before we landed on the moon.

  46. I keep saying it and AP keeps doubling down:

    The annual offseason paper champs have something else coming in week 2. It’s going to be SO sweet to christen their new “stadium” with an L by their arch rivals.

    Go to any Packer or Bears article (they are each other’s biggest rival) and you don’t see any major trolling.

    Using logical deduction would tell you that it’s the Vikings fans who bring it on themselves and then cry wolf when they can’t handle the heat. You’re all like the 3 little pigs.

    I just looked. That does not appear to be true. And I sure hope you are not implying that I am one of these aliases. I would hate to be confused with anyone else. It’s part of my brand.

  72. Frank Booth swears he is a Bears fan LOL.

    Spends more time in Vikings posts than any Bears fan I know.

  73. I swear some of these guys here have NO purpose in life but refresh PFT ALL DAY AND NIGHT waiting for Minnesota Vikings stories to trash talk!
    Your comments mean nothing to us, You see the teams progress but here are the same tired and lame comments from the same guys year after year.
    Even the pathetic move in creating several screen names to post multiple times under different names.
    It is SAD….. you need help.

  74. I see one big difference in the Team since Rick took over drafting, Minnesota is no longer Drafting from behind like we used to. Now we have young quality players deep waiting for their times to play. Just look at last years Arizona game, nearly 1/2 our Defensive starters were out with injury, yet we played them down to the wire, with Rookies and 2nd stringers.
    This team lost a trip to the Super Bowl in 1998 due to
    injuries, a lesson well learned. Another lesson is Drafting the right players and keeping them. The Draft is a Crap shoot and having 10 picks makes up on Players like Paterson, we got the 5th round Pick for Diggs from a trade!
    Spielman has Free Agent Contracts under control without losing players because we don’t have money free, The Finances are ready for the next years contracts and the decisions have already been made.
    Results are coming in, and it has our competition, (and their fans) scared as hell!

    ===================================
    I’d be a fool not to. Vikings’ fans are as amusing as anything.

    Now they’re saying the reason that people post on Vikings’ threads is because were “scared” or “terrified” of the Vikings.

    I think most sane people are hardly afraid of an opposing football team and whether or not they’ll be good or not. Watching football is entertainment (just like PFT), not life or death.

    And, if nothing else, Vikings’ fans are entertaining, but probably not in the fashion they’d like to be.

  79. This team lost a trip to the Super Bowl in 1998 due to
    injuries, lesson learned.
    ———-
    No. You as a fan might want to believe that it was due to injuries and a lesson learned. But that would be a blatant lie. Is that what your Grandpa told because you weren’t even born yet? And Rick Spielman was nowhere near the Vikings to learn any lesson in 1998, it was Jeff Diamond. It was your kicker who was perfect all season that lost the game at the end, not injuries. Seriously, it’s like you queenie fans just like to make stuff up as you go along.

    Unless you can tell me which of these inured players cost you a trip to the Super Bowl?

    “The 16–1 Vikings, boasting the league’s first post-merger 500-point offense since the 1983 Washington Redskins, were heavy favorites at Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome”

  80. the fact that you think we were talking about you proves our point that you probably are multiple posters
    ———
    Not at all. But I have made a lot of posts on here. The usual Viking fan logic would then try to conclude that it must be me. I’ve seen it before. Not really sure why anyone would bother doing that in the first place or why anyone would actually care?

  81. Why do we even bother playing the games? Let’s just argue this out. A rep from each team can stand before a podium and argue his case for why his team is going to win it all. Then a 5 judge panel …

  82. Real Men talk Smack At Games, I guess that says it all for the non-Vikings posters here.
    ———-
    I’ve gone to every Packer game in the Metrodome for the last 24 years. Never once had any real men approach me I guess. Except for that one guy. He tried to punch me and I knocked his teeth out. It was fun watching him go away in handcuffs in his Kenechi Udezi jersey.

  83. Peterson has done some pretty stupid things in the past, but I tend to agree with him on a lot of what he’s saying now. Speilman has brought in more than his share of great young defensive players over the last three drafts. They definitely have some talent. Generally you need a great QB if you want to be a serious contender, but if your defense can keep your opponents from scoring, you can win with an average QB. I think Bridgewater, at best, can become an average QB. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to see the Vikings battling Carolina in the NFC Championship. If you can pressure Cam Newton, you can beat him. Cam can play well with a big cushion, but get him in a close game and he can fall apart.

  84. I can’t help but notice that the people saying the Vikings have no chance and that Viking fans are delusional are the same people who were saying last year that the Packers would have the division clinched by October. Forgive me if your incredible football acumen doesn’t worry me.

    How’s it feel losing to mediocre? Last I checked the Vikings were #1 in the NFC north.

    Your team minus Rodgers is worst in the division easy and possibly worst in the league.

  86. but seriously, kids cant keep recieving thirst place trophy’s, and they have to know that loosing is part of being a winner, and know when they’ve done wrong! I’m with Ya Adrian, most these hates got no kids, much less brains to pass on to their heirs! You have my respect Son!

  87. His only chance is to get out of Minny for his last couple years.

    He used to talk them up when they had Percy harvin and that didn’t work out to well.

  88. Packers are are back to their mediocre ways such as they were in the the 70’s and 80’s- they were the door mat to the NFCC, now NFCN Div. The Viking’s are coming, hide your cheese, turpentine and grandparents. (I know you stashed your sisters already)

  89. Gotta say this Vikes team reminds me of Seattle a few years back. Granted Teddy isn’t Wilson, but he is young and going to get better. The team is loaded with talent and I think AP might be right. Seems everything including new OL coach, new OL help, new stadium, and arguably one of the best 3 head coaches in the league and this thing is starting to feel “right” for a run…

    SKOL!

  90. He would be saying this if he was on the Browns too. He’s hit the age 30 ceiling and it’s all downhill from here.

    So apparently “all downhill” means yet another rushing title lol!!!!

  91. Sorry guys, but Bridgewater need to mature a ton, before you have a chance. In last years, last game against Seattle he look like a disillusoined child that was getting his butt kicked. Almost like Cam Newton in the SB, except Newton had a tantrum.

    There is an old military saying, that when the going gets tough, the tough get going.

  93. frank booth says:

    It says that the losing team was upset, which occurs from time-to-time. In this case, this was confirmed when the Division Champ lost it’s playoff game at home (which is what they are known for, an NFL record 28th playoff loss), while the team it beat went on the road to win it’s playoff game.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    The Vikings weren’t favored to win. They almost “upset” the favored Seahawks.

    The Packers were favored to beat the Redskins – a team that wasn’t of playoff caliber.

  94. Ya know, I wouldn’t trade even 1 actual Packer Lombardi trophy for 40 of these imaginary Viking trophies. Come football season, they don’t seem nearly as satisfying as the real thing.

    In closing, Packer fans prefer actual championships to all these pretend ones.

  95. frank booth says:

    Wrong again, Linda. The Packers won 6 championships between 1929 and 1944.

    They won NFL Championships in 1961, 1962, and 1965. They won Super Bowls in 1966, 1967, 1996, and 2010.

    That’s 7 NFL Championships or Super Bowls since 1960- and that’s not counting NFL Championships in 1966 and 1967, prior to the Super Bowl game (Vikings’ fans, on the other hand, love to talk about their NFL championship prior to losing the Super Bowl to the Chiefs).
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Just for clarification….

    The first official Super Bowl was an exhibition game played between the Vikings and the Chiefs after the 1969 NFL season had ended with the Vikings winning the NFL Championship.

    You can’t win something that doesn’t exist – unless you’re a Packer fan – I guess.

    Which reminds me of another fallacy perpetuated by Packer fans.

    That they really “won” 13 NFL Championships…

    In 1930 – the Packers were credited with the Championship – despite the fact that they only won 10 games and the Giants won 13.

    Now remember – there weren’t any playoffs back then. The Packers and the Giants played each other twice – both teams winning one game by a 7 point margin.

    The NFL, just like today, fails to make very much sense. Any reasonable person understands that 13 wins is more than 10 – and would have awarded the NFL Championship to the Giants.

    Yeah, those Championships in the years where the Packers were playing the “little sisters of the poor” are so relevant….

    You sound uneducated. Move along.

  97. Packer trolls still so scared. Scared last year at this time. Scared today. Vikes may not win the SB, this year or ever. But the Vikes, and everyone else in the division rolled the Pack at home last year. Packer trolls know it’s over. But they spend the majority of their time on Vikings posts trolling away. Why? Because the Vikings aren’t even their true rival? Riiiiight.

  98. OK…it’s a fact that Green Bay has won more Super Bowl/championships than the Vikings. Now that the history lesson is over, let’s talk about 2016 and compare the two teams. Green Bay has the better QB, but beyond that, Minnesota is better in just about every facet, especially defense. On offense, the Vikings improved their OL through free agency, landed a highly touted WR in the draft and still have the best RB in the NFL. If Bridgewater can improve even slightly, the Vikings should be a serious contender, especially with a dominating defense and a coach that seems to be taking the team in the right direction.

  99. It is really obvious the Packers are very concerned, the Vikings are doing very well on defense and the Offense is going to be much improved and it looks like the division is highly contested! The Vikings are a good running team and play great team defense and that is what you need to survive in the playoffs! This is not rocket science, the best RB in this league makes the statement that he did not make prior and most of the media gets a hold to what he says and everybody is listening! The Vikings need to improve on Offense and will not be kicking those field goals instead i look for their Offense to score more touchdowns getting into the red zone was not the problem, scoring from the red zone Mr. Bridgewater with the right receivers and blocking up front! It is not rocket science its just NFL football and the Vikings will cause many DC’s to lose sleep!

    *NFL does not give the Vikings any credit for this non-existent championship.

    Ah but the NFL does give credit to the Vikings for this championship.

    Everyone who is not a packer fans acknowledges it. We don’t care if packer fans acknowledge it.

    It’s very sad that you have no clue about NFL history or the Super Bowl. The league merged in 1966. It just didn’t become a LEGALLY merged entity until a few years later. Basically paperwork. Which is why Super Bowl 1 was in 1866.

    It’s pretty sad that you do not know what is public knowledge.

    Another Vikings article, another comment section where the first comment is by a GB “fan”.

    —————

    We wait 5 years for your return and this is the best you have? We have 30 other vike fans who can say “look, a packer troll is the first to comment…” I thought you were better than this.

  107. Notice how Packer fans always use “championships” to prove their argument. The sky is yellow because “349 championships last year blah blah”. How does a “DIVISION RIVALRY” argument boil down to “LEAGUE RESULTS” ? Especially league results from when the Vikings weren’t even in existence yet? Explain that to me.

    When any sane person compares “division rivalries” they do so based upon the results of common games and goals (ie. division championships). The Vikings, with the most division championships since 1970 (league merge), and thus are by DEFINITION the best team in the NFC north in the modern era.

  108. gtodriver is wrong.

    The Super Bowl (or AFL-NFL Championship Game) has never been considered to be an exhibition game. In the 1966 agreement between the leagues, it was decided that there would be an NFL-AFL championship game beginning in 1966, a common draft starting in 1967, and exhibition games could be played between the 2 leagues.

    Also, the Packers won the 1930 Championship because of a better winning percentage (ties were not included in the calculation at the time).

    Gtodriver tells you that the Giants won more games, but conveniently leaves out that the Giants played 3 more games and lost one more than the Packers did that year.

    Also, the NFL recognizes the Vikings NFL Championship, but does not recognize it as a league championship. The 1969 season concluded play following the Vikings loss to the Chiefs for the championship.

  109. The best way to determine a rivalry between two teams would be their head to head record, and the Packers lead the Vikings by 9 games in that.

    All the Vikings have is their division championships. When they get to the playoffs, it all comes apart.

    Even at that, the Vikings dominance in the division ends in 1980. Since then, the Packers have won the division 11 times, the Bears 10 times, and the Vikings 9 times. Since 1980, the Bears have one Super Bowl victory and 2 appearances, the Packers have 2 Super Bowl victories and 3 appearances.

    And the Vikings? No appearances.

  110. Hey Vikings fans — thanks for making me laugh. I actually feel sorry for you because you have to latch on to the fact that the Vikings won the NFC North last year as the only thing you can brag about.
    But — how did it work out for you? You were one and done in the playoffs as usual while the Packers took the Cards to overtime in their building in the 2nd round of the playoffs.
    So, since the playoffs is what it’s all about — the Packers had a better year anyway than the Vikings.
    And we let you borrow the NFCN Crown last year, but we’re taking it back this year.
    Tell your team to have fun on the golf course when playoff time rolls around, because that’s where they’ll be.

  111. frank booth says:

    “All the Vikings have is their division championships.”

    Yes, and the 2015 division championship was especially sweet; clinching it over a vastly superior Packers team playing on hallowed frozen tundra.

    Good news Pack fans: Jordy Nelson is returning!

    I’ll make no apologizes for my favorite team and shoulder no responsibility for its failure to win a Super Bowl. I’m curious; how do the uppity GB fans show their respect to the superior human beings that follow the Steelers or Cowboys? Both (and the 49ers) have more SB appearances and wins than the Packers. You must envy them.

    No idea what happens in 2016, but GB is praying Minnesota goes soft. Vikes = better roster.

  112. I almost forgot…one of the Sharpe brothers (Sterling?) said on ESPN that (because Jordy Nelson is returning) that GB would WHIP Minnesota in their home opener and run away with the division. Vikes are a 9-7 team. Maybe.

    Loving this.

  113. Sure not the Pack ten but Pittsburgh.

    OMG–now you are reduced to this? Not even talking about the Vikes but bringing up the Steelers? It must really suck to pull for a team that has sucked so badly for so long. Oh well, more power to ya. I do feel sorry for ya though

    Mel kiper Jr. once said jamarcus Russell would be an elite top 3 QB for whichever team drafted him.

    Hang on to what other people say though. It seems to make your day.

  116. Frank booth: Your argument falls apart as soon as you add illegitimate qualifiers like “since 1980”. You don’t get to pick some arbitrary date that makes your statistics look good or to prove your argument. Even the Detroit lions could make the argument they are the best team based upon some arbitrary qualifier.

    The impressive thing is that in your arbitrary time frame the Bears had dominant defenses and the Packers had back-to-back HOF QBs and the Vikings still kept pace in division titles.

    As for lifetime records, thanks for proving my point. In 50+ years the head-to-head record is very even with their SLIGHT lead at the moment completely attributed to their HOF QB’s in the last two decades. That luck has run out and the Vikes have surpassed them without relying on ONE player.

    As for the Bears, even you know your team is a joke in every facet of the game. It’ll be another decade before you’re relevant, but by then even the Packers will have a hard time calling the Bears a true “rival”.

  117. As for lifetime records, thanks for proving my point. In 50+ years the head-to-head record is very even with their SLIGHT lead.
    ————
    9 games is not a “slight” lead. Think about how long it would take the Vikings to break even playing twice a year. Most likely decades.

    And the only thing that matters are championships. End of story. It’s the only reason players play the game and fans watch it. They want to win a championship.

    Unfortunately the Vikings have ZERO of those, even though they had a chance to win 4 of them and choked them away.

  118. I do agree that the Packers have had 2 great QB’s. Well run teams usually do. And neither one of them was by luck or accident.

    They traded a 1st round pick for a drunk backup in Atlanta drafted in the 2nd round only 1 year before.

    The drafted a guy who was a coin flip to be the #1 overall pick when they already had a HOF QB that played another 6 years in the NFL. To make matters worse, the Vikings passed up the opportunity to draft Rodgers not once but twice…….in the favor of superstars: Troy Williamson and Erasmus James!

    SKOLOLOLOL!!!

  119. Quite frankly, I can pick any time frame I want for any reason, and no matter how far back I go, I’m not going to find a Vikings’ Super Bowl victory anyway.

    Fact is, the Packers lead over the Vikings in head-to-head isn’t slight- it’s 9 games. And the Vikings have hardly surpassed the Packers by winning 1 of 2 games last year, and then blowing their home playoff game while the Packers moved on.

    And if all it has taken is one player to beat the Vikings, that’s a pretty sad statement.

    The Vikings have shown that they can win a division, and lose a home playoff game. That’s all.

    No, the Bears aren’t a joke. They took a couple of bad losses last year. Especially embarrassing was that Bridgewater threw 4 TD’s against their horrible secondary.

    But I’m not sure what’s more embarrassing- that the Bears gave up 5 TD’s on the year to Bridgewater, or that 8 of Bridgewaters 14 TD’s came against the Bears and the Lions in 4 games, leaving Bridgewater with 6 more TD passes over 12 more games.

    And of course, even the most casual football fan knows that it can take just a couple of years for a team to return to relevance.

    It was Shannon Sharpe but his bro Sterling was a Cheesehead when he played in the NFL so I’d say he was a bit biased to start with. His reasoning, and the reasoning of others, is really baffling. The Vikings are bringing back all if their 11-5 team except Wallace, signed two free agent OL plus Sullivan and Loadholt are back from injuries, and we had a great draft, yet just because a 31 yr old wide receiver is coming back from an ACL injury and fat Eddy isn’t quite so fat anymore, the Packers will miraculously rebound from last year’s “fluke season”. I just don’t get it, unless it’s more wishful thinking than anything concrete.

    I don’t mean to be disrespectful, I really don’t, but this may be wishful thinking on the part of Viking fans. Beating a down-year Green Bay team once, finally securing a long-awaited post-season berth, and then Charlie-Browning the opportunity into the stands, does not a champion make.

    Nobody, realistic Viking fans included, believe the Vikings have suddenly leapfrogged the Packers. Nobody.

    That’s not to say the Vikings won’t be a force to be reckoned with, because they will be, but the Packers are still the team to beat in the North Division.

    I know it. You know it. Everybody knows it.

  122. @stellarperformance–I beg your pardon, but if I remember, the Vikings already leapfrogged the Packers. That’s why it’s called NFCN champions. If the Packers leapfrog the champs this season, then we’ll talk again.

  124. Also, 9 games out of a 111 meetings is by definition a SLIGHT amount. That’s an 8% difference. Again, all of that is attributed to the QB disparity over the last 6-8 years. Both teams will regress to the median.

    4 Superbowls: Finding a HOF QB is mostly LUCK! If it wasn’t then how come outside of Favre/Rodgers/Starr every other QB’s you’ve drafted hasn’t done anything? We passed on Rodgers, so did every other team. Lots of teams, including the PACKERS passed on Tom Brady at least 5x each. If the Packer office has the magic crystal ball for finding HOF QB’s why aren’t they loading up their team with these HOF QB’s just for trade bait? Why is your entire franchise and team one injury to Rodgers away from a 4-12 record?

    Actually, yes.
