NFL Opening Weekend never lacks intrigue, but this year's slate is shaping up to be one of the best ever.
The worst game - Jets vs Dolphins - has instantly turned into a must watch with the Brett Favre and Chad Pennington drama. Now, one the NFL's biggest rivalries featured on Monday Night Football has some bonus trash-talking pizazz.
Just under four weeks until the Minnesota Vikings visit Green Bay on the first Monday night of the season and the Vikes are already talking some game. Namely, defensive lineman Pat Williams and Jared Allen.
Williams, the Vikings defensive nose tackle, was asked if he'd been keeping up with the Favre saga:
“I’m going to try to crush all of ‘em. That’s been the focus of my whole summer – the Green Bay Packers.”
Allen, the newly acquired defensive end had a more particular focus.
As I've long predicted, it may last all of one quarter before the Packers front office wishes they had a capable back up quarterback. Best of luck, Aaron. I've got my odds on the big angry Pro Bowl defensive linemen.
