threats) followed by the FootballLOCKS.com classic schedule analysis
and a record projection summary.
Rushing defense, passing offense,
defensive line (DE Jared Allen, DT Kevin Williams, DT Pat Williams, DE Ray Edwards),
RB Adrian Peterson, QB Brett Favre, WR Sidney Rice (out), WR Percy Harvin (migraine
headache issues), WR depth (Greg Camarillo, Bernard Berrian)
TE Visanthe Shiancoe,
LG Steve Hutchinson, CB Antoine Winfield, K Ryan Longwell, WR Percy Harvin

CB depth, RB Adrian Peterson's fumbling, offensive line depth.
Return of MLB E.J. Henderson & RG Anthony Herrera.
WR Sidney Rice hip surgery (return date unknown), WR Percy Harvin's
migraines, QB Brett Favre's aging body, loss of RB Chester Taylor,
CB Cedric Griffin still recovering from a torn ACL,
1st round draft pick CB Chris Cook torn meniscus, C John Sullivan calf injury,
LT Bryant McKinnie level of play,
choice of Tavaris Jackson as the #2 QB instead of Sage Rosenfels.
In 2010 the Vikings will play 8 games versus teams that made the playoffs a season ago;
Of note is in week 5 the Jets still could be missing a few top players like CB Revis & OLB Pace,
the Cardinals are without Kurt Warner (retired), and New England's defense appears
uncharacteristically weak up front.
Other potentially competitive matchups include;
The Vikings have sudden issues on offense, but they still field an imposing defense.
Overall we predict the Vikings to go (10-6) in 2010.
The chance for upside certainly exists.
It will be interesting to see if Minnesota drops the game @Chicago this season-- which could be
a bit of a trap with Green Bay on deck.
