Those three guys I mentioned above had swagger. I hated everytime Culpepper came out and did his "roll with it." lol.
I'm not sure it intensifies but I don't think it will go away or down for myself any. I have always been excited for Packers Vikings even when we were bad.

See, I'm different.

The Fran Tarkenton years were bad years for Packer fans. I just didn't care when you guys pounded us with Chuck Foreman, Bill Brown, Allen Page, Jim Marshal, and Sir Francis, and I didn't care until we had Favre because we were terrible before that. My thing is, the it intensified during the Moss/Culpepper years and it's died down until the Favre years and then, died down again.

It's all perspective and I respect everyone on both sides.

The all time record between Vikings vs Packers is 54-49-1 in favor of the Packers. Playoff record 1-0 in favor of the Vikes

Of course it's a rivalry in the sense that every team has a rivalry with the other teams in their division. They play twice a year, know each other well, records go out the window, etc. But to state it as if the rivalry is now charged back up is a bit premature imo. My guess was Packers fans still look at the Vikings as just the team in their way right now, and the Packers fans here seem to agree. Again, they have to consider how well the Vikings know them but being a huge game bc it's MIN/GB only comes from one side.

And btw, I'm a MD fan and the MD/Duke game is HUGE to me... one of the biggest reasons I hate that they're moving to the Big 10. But keeping it real, it's just not the same feel in Durham. I'm also a Ravens fan and like the Redskins... and know exactly how both sides feel when talking about the Steelers or Cowboys. Vikings/Packers is more MD/Duke.

Where I'm at, I am friends with a lot of Packer fans. The rivalry did fade a little the last few years, but this last game really intensified things.

Another thing to say is that I love that this game is happening. I would rather be playing the Packers than say, if we were playing the Falcons or 49ers or any other team. I love division rivalries in the playoffs.
That'd be a different story NEXT year. It's got to build up. Splitting 2 games in one season doesn't create that huge build up... especially with GB dominating recently before that also. If this weren't a playoff game, it'd just be a nice division match up. Skins/Boys, Ravens/Steelers, Pack/Bears, etc. are huge rivalry games no matter when they're played.

Let's hope the team is looking at it that way, too. Maybe then the Vikes will be 2-0 all time in the playoffs @ Lambeau

The Vikings should be looking at it the same way.

Go Vikings.

If the Vikings keep winning, and Seattle does too, we get a home playoff game.

With the ability to secure four tickets to a playoff game, I really want that to happen.

Along the border where I live, Packer and Viking fans consider each other to be the biggest rival. This is the worst week ever.

I can see where other parts of Wisconsin are more indifferent. I know exactly how it is to have a third wheel trying to pipe up and horn in on an historic rivalry.

It only seems like it intensified more because it's the playoffs.

But again, if we would've won last Sunday I doubt this would even be a conversation right now. Sure, historically and record wise, it's "close" but looking at recent history, other than 09 and the Moss/Culpepper years this has been a one sided "rivalry".

I have no reason to "hate" the Vikings and actually respect a lot of their players. Dayman said it best in that it'll take more than 1 or 2 games for this rivalry to pump back. The dook-Maryland comparison is an appropriate one Maryland Fans(Minnesota)always look forward to beating dook(Green Bay)and treat those games as their Super Bowls while Packer Fans are like "meh".
