Your hatred runs deep, sir....
Hey - I call it like I see it. I see MIN struggling a great deal right now learning a completely new offense. Ive said from the beginning that Culpepper was overrated both in fantasy and as an NFL QB. He has serious flaws in his game that Moss was able to smooth over. Im not saying he's bad or anything - but for what this offense has become without Moss - yes - his flaws will become much more apparant and MIN will struggle to move the ball.
Defensively they have a lot of good names, but that doesnt make them a good defense - yet. It will take some time for them to jell and they still have holes at LB that can be exploited.
As a division rival Homer I absolutely love seeing MIN and GB struggling - but my reasoning isnt coming from that standpoint like many said when I first started talking about this. I also expected CHI to be a much better team than the majority thought the preseason - if Im such a Homer, why would I say one division rival will be much worse than the majority is expecting while the other would be much better? I know Im wrong often, but my theories and projections are rarely based on emotions.
That being said - MIN is no better than an 8-8 team this yr.
