  1. There is some irony in the new coach opening against the team that cost the old coach his job.

  2. Green Bay did not cause Zimmer to lose his job. Zimmer was 7-8-1 vs. Green Bay.

  3. I’d prefer these two teams play each other after they both first shook the rust off in three or four weeks, rather than straight out of the gate.

  4. If the Week 4 in London game is at 9:30pm then we get to watch it at 3:30am right?

  5. Two cold-weather outdoor division-rival venues in a row to end the season? This should be interesting.

    Cold weather is a myth….. both teams have to play in the elements. Even in the Vikings glory years at the Old Met I never believed in that cold wetaher bit. Footballs get just as hard, do not fly well in the kicking game, ball handling skill become tougher, gettin ghit stings a little more… for both teams. Its a mind thing. Vikings can practice with the doors open those weeks and have a better running game. I’m not worried.

  7. The two games to close the season definitely puts the Vikings playoff hopes on thin ice. But hey; they are professional players so they should be unaffected – unless of course the games are played in 30 below temperatures or in the midst of a blizzard. Is this where we insert Denny Green’s old weather analysis about “Calcutta Clippers”??

    Classic!
