Vikings rank # 6 on SI power Poll

Despite the 3-0 start, the Vikings are STILL NOT getting any love from the people at Sports Illustrated. According to SI, the Ravens, Saints, Giants, Colts and Jets rank just ahead of the Purple and Gold at this point.

The Vikings have the NFL’s 4th ranked defense, but are ranked only # 18 on offense.

Pretty in pink: Brett Favre, Chad Greenway, Chester Taylor and Antoine Winfield won’t be making a fashion statement wearing pink cleats on Monday Night Football on Oct. 5 against the Green Bay Packers.

The Viking starters have agreed to wear the customized cleats to support the NFL’s breast cancer awareness effort for Week 4, and pink is the internationally recognized color for the cause.

Greenway said he’ll be proud to wear the shoes because of his family’s close connection to breast cancer. His grandmother and his wife Jennifer’s grandmother both passed away after battles against cancer. Chad is the team spokesman for breast cancer awareness.
Favre’s wife, Deanna, is a cancer survivor, and she has been a notable activist with her Deanna Favre Hope Foundation.

Players from around the league will wear the pink cleats and many are also expected to wear pink gloves.
