Vikings over Rams, easily. Rams don't have a QB and the Vikings offense should be able to outscore the Ram's. Our defense is suspect with all the young players but I have faith in the addition of Zimmer. Vikings have been holding teams in ways I haven't seen in years this past pre-season (we went 4-0 thanks to great defense and good offense). Should be an easy game for the defense as I don't have any faith in Shaun Hill.
Ram's defense is stout as hell but Adrian Peterson has shredded them before and he will do it again. Hope Norv Turner draws up a ton of screens for CP 84. Put up a ton of yards. All Cassel needs to do is move the chains and with the amount of healthy offensive options he has, that should be easy: Greg Jennings, Kyle Rudolph, Cordarelle Patterson, and Jarius Wright look sharp as hell and they should make it easy for him.

So...the Jets starting corners for week 1 will probably be Antonio Allen (safety turned corner) and Ellis Lankster. Great. Allen is actually a pretty decent safety, but the dude has never even played corner before. So yeah, the CB situation is ****ed. The good news is they're playing the Raiders, and Rex Ryan defenses usually feast on rookie QB's.
Matt Schaub already benched for Derek Carr. Which has-been/never-was QB will Oakland trade for next off-season?
I don't mind him as our backup. I liked what I saw from Carr in the preseason, so I am okay with him starting. We actually have a pulse on offense in the passing game. I just hope the o-line doesn't get him killed.
