    The Vikings would have to have some HEART to win this game.
    From what I witnessed at the Hoosierdome, ;), we do not possess that.

    It sucks, I paid a lot of moneyt to go see my Vikings play the Colts, and I thought we should have been able to handle them, even though we don’t have any help for P. Harvin, C. Ponder, and a recovering AP.

    Oh wait,
    We don’t have any LB’s other than Greenway, and we dont have a secondary other than #26, whom is still hurt and getting older by the minute UNFORTUNATELY.

    But the whole team played like they just didn’t give a damn.
    Having seen this, why should they build them a new stadium ? ? ?

    @stonginator…I really feel for you man, having paid good money to go see the Vikings lose…AGAIN. I really thought that they could handle Luck and Indy, but our defense just wasn’t there. We STILL need a secondary, and a better pass rush. I feel like it’s gonna be another long year for us die-hard Viking fans.

    @aaron rodgers…you are a real jerkweed, immature, and a homophobe. I really feel sorry for you, man. I apologize, you are NOT a man, you are a child.

    It’s worse than you think:Look at those stupid uniforms, that’s what also sucks. It’s an all time low for the Vikings. They’re going to get killed all year. I saw this movie last year. QB looks like a little kid with a safety helmet his mommy made him wear. The coach thinks he has all the time in the world. I hope he doesn’t. He’s a dip. The whole staff is lame.1-15.
