Brad Johnson vs. San Francisco.
I played some pop warner QB and I think I could throw for 300 and 3 td's against this defense.
at least this is what I am hoping for because McNabb is one bye!!!

Don't think so. It might happen, but consider me skeptical.

HAHAHAHA

j/k :-D

Brad Johnson is a solid QB in real life, but doesn't put up stellar numbers. I have a feeling that MIN is just going to pound the rock with Chester Taylor and walk away with a quick win.

Exactly. He's like Roethlisberger. He doesn't make the dumb mistakes or forced passes that can lose your NFL team the game, but he isn't prone to putting up 300+ yard 3-TD games that win the week for your fantasy team. And quite frankly, the Vikes this year aren't built for that kind of game, either.

Not to say that either of them can't go 350 & 3, but I wouldn't ever bet on it. Even against the Niners.

Chicago could have done the same thing: ie "pound the ball"

I am probably so optimistic because I need him to produce!!!!

I'm not sure when the last time Brad Johnson threw for 300, but it wasn't this year and it wasn't last year.

I think he's done it before, but not with the Randy-Moss-less Vikings.

If any Viking stands to have a great game, I think it's Chester Taylor. I expect that the Vikings will win and wins usually mean big rushing performances while losses can mean big passing performances.

I wouldn't laugh, I'd say it's so obvious, I wouldn't of bothered posting it.

In fact my opponent has McNabb this week with Leftwich as his backup, and I'm very much hoping someone else in our league will nab BJ before my opponent wisens up.

I'd do it myself for the block, but don't have the roster space! :-o
I hate LJ Smith!

Frye isn't an option, but Seneca Wallace gives you a higher ceiling than Johnson.

Honestly, and weird as it is to say, but the Bears are more of a passing team than the Vikings. Grossman has a hell of an arm and a fantastic rookie receiver. Johnson does the smart play, isn't really a long ball guy, and has some pretty mediocre wideouts. The only guy who is really interesting is Williamson and it's always a crap shoot if he's going to actually catch the ball or not. And Childress is dedicated to the running game.

Johnson might end up with 3 TD's because the squad moves the ball and then he hits Travis Taylor or Jermaine Wiggins in the red zone but as I said earlier, I wouldn't bet on it. And I certainly wouldn't count on it. If you need to rely on him, you might want to check your other options.
