Oh, how I wish we still had a WR like Anthony Carter around to torment the Niners. But A.C. won't be necessary to lay a spanking on these bums. If the Vikings just plow Chester Taylor behind Steve Hutchinson every play of the game, I'll rely on the Viking defense and Mewelde Moore returning punts to outscore the Niners without any offense. But there's no reason to do that--this is the chance to get that offense into some rhythm.
Chester Taylor will run all over the Niners. Brad Johnson will complete some passes downfield; even if he underthrows WRs as bad as he did on Monday, the Niner secondary is so lousy it won't take Randy Moss to come back and adjust. What's the magic number for sacks by the defense? 5? 7? They'll also force 3-4 turnovers. This is going to be a party.
Vikes win, 33-0.
