To synchronize. Great. We're. Do boo vehemently. And that would lead giving guys in the right position. To recognize certain things when the ball snapped on and affordable map. And then we shall we here's. I think they six. Pro Bowl on that team and I did. It the ability legal tools support him. Also obviously yeah pension Griffin on the outside.

Item our receivers to get comfortable at all he didn't do it but talk and he does about physically. Do indeed your finger on each in their report in total vikings there's no clue. Being number one on National Football League in terms of points. And in terms the ability to. To assert just give people that feel. They are on third down we think about the so. Only want our processor completion percentage. The ability to move to mix down should try to do for our. Only 25%. That was the National Football League console they'll ill 3.4. Please. They whip Dick column explosive gains plain old reboot sixteen. Or twenty yards. Or running back or wide receiver. They're fees per game there's 3.4. And it can do that the National Football League you're gonna get so the chance to win and that's what they've been able to you know give it most teams they equally. And getting single picture business and and one inaction employee programs in the Steelers. And receive some very good cookbook in during the year on schedule and voted not the law. Tell me about case Keenan some talk has been made of him never playing in a playoff game before and maybe the stage. May or may not be too big for money think. Well natural Google always what it is in this it is first experience not the solely in the post season. And mentally or out of figured out that. When those boat that reasonable right to abuse China and so forth. I've not forget the first game being in the viking wore moment I've got this incredible series Kane. That game was won by Sam Bradford. Brett there was accord he threw for three got her seat to the premiere and 43 arts. And the industry are very weird week that he got hurt and there is keen optical. The kid is using the reelect guide to seeing him. The only child to do he can do and he has been spectacular this see the vikings certainly wouldn't be. Playing these glow in saint. In a game like this without him epic charmed season and another bring that up to get there or Europe and more running. That aren't an oracle. So they kept it more open. Because of the players that stepped in cape kingdom being the big one. I kept Atmel. Larry floor relate to go how you see the game. Ending would you take a win I guess predicted and prediction is one amassed in the in my own clumsy way. Well they don't seem to agree that there are OK there's no secret to that he's more accurate quarterback. In Seattle Pro Bowl history and so are not crazy. I don't know that. If he plays well I deeply last week. Deputy the ability. To be Korean in the park. And to complete 70%. Of this. It don't matter would be pension plan against mobile. To street is gonna delivers clean water and so. That would be the answer right there return of the vikings played with Betty. And the saints gotten all. The bike in with the crowd in the game the rate you're going to be in trouble sort I don't think in. That's going to be game like. That because of the vikings are pretty. Predictably.
