Can you see it? Can you feel it? Change is in the air. A Nordic storm is building momentum in Minnesota-a storm so powerful, so menacing, even the bravest of souls quiver in its wake. Venture outside if you dare-face the vengeance of the “Vikings.”
As game-time approaches, I can’t remember a time when I felt more confident about our team moving forward as I do right now. Gone are the days of the soft defenses-this is smash-mouth at its very best. In less than two seasons as head coach, Zimmer has brought on a mindset that has an edge to it-a nasty edge, an edge that says “I’m gonna punch you right in the mouth and watch you bleed.”
The Vikings have an opportunity to put a stranglehold on the NFC North with a victory against their hated rivals-the Packers. The pundits are still giving the Vikings a 50/50 chance of coming out victorious on Sunday…they are still expecting the Packers to rise up to the occasion like they have since 2010, but, as I mentioned earlier, and what we fans know to be true-this is not the same Vikings team that the Packers had their way with in recent history.
So let’s sound the Gjallarhorn, the Vikings are going to battle! Change is coming…the momentum has shifted…can you feel it?
