HERE COMES ROUND TWO
In Wisconsin, we typically get 8 days with 2 inches or more of snow. And 3 days with 6 inches or more. My old weather days taught me that.
And while it doesn't seem like a lot, we can get it this time of the year.
And that's about the only reason to like the Humpty Dump. The Metrodome is the most sterile, loudest, most obnoxious place complete with speakers behind the bench, and mind numbing carnival type sounds.
So that's why I love this rivarly. Packers fans cross the border, and typically are well represented. And let's face facts...who likes a Viking and a team that wears purple, anyway?
When the Packers have the ball: Ryan Grant the only running back to go over 100 yards against the Vikes at the dome last year. And a couple seasons ago, Donald Driver took advantage of Darren Sharper's aggressive nature, saw him flat footed and cheating up in the box, and he made him pay with an 85 yard TD strike.
When the Vikings have the ball: The Packers can only hope that Brad Childress does what he's done before. Not give Adrian Peterson even 20 carries. It's ridiculous that he doesn't feed his best player the ball more. But like I said in week one, the Vikings are more dangerous with Gus Frerotte at QB, because he usually takes care of the ball, and has been throwing deep to Bernard Berrian.
Prediction: In the battle of 4-4's, I say the Packers make it 6 in a row for the first time since the early Lombardi years....winning 30-27. My yearly predictions at 6-2, so I'm 2 up on the Pack at this point!
