X Factors, Sleepers, and things rarely talked about - Vikings game


Hi All,

This is a relatively short post because I would rather hear from you. 

We know what the big obvious factors for the vikes game will be.  Henne and Marshall, R&R v. excellent run D, containing AP, Favre and who he has to throw to, etc. 

My questions include what you think may happen in this game to swing it one way or the other that isn't really being talked about.  Is there a sleeper pick in this game for the phins?  Is there something that we just have no way of predicting how it will go that will affect the game?  And why? 

My answer:  Sleeper/not being talked about is Hartline in the Redzone.  I know there has been a lot of venom spewed about the kid, whether justified or not, but he has had a few clutch redzone TDs including one in the preseason in which he got in perfect position.  Marshall will be double teamed and while Ronnie and Ricky are our go to guys in the redzone, the vike's have an excellent run stuffing D.  Hartline should get opportunities in the Redzone and seems to be capable of capitalizing on them.
