A Good Day for the Vikings


Even while enjoying their bye week, good things keep happening on the field for the Vikings.

The good things I refer to are a pair of somewhat stunning losses just suffered by the Purple’s two main opponents in the NFC North.  Down in Tampa, the Packers failed to mount a late rally against the previously winless Buccaneers, and lost 38-28.  Meanwhile, in Chicago, the Bears got their butts absolutely handed to them by the Arizona Cardinals, despite Jay Cutler’s 369 yard, 3 TD performance.

I’m not sure which development was more shocking:  the Packers going all Redskins and handing the Bucs their first win, or the Bears getting destroyed 41-21 at home.  I do know that the Vikings are now 3 games up in the division with 8 to play.

Yes, it’s too soon to start printing up those back-to-back NFC North champion t-shirts.  But the Vikings are definitely in the driver’s seat.

    “Shocking” that the packers lose to a pansy-@ss team that is managed by a white rate and is coached by a tub of lard?

    “Shocking” that the pretender sharon rogers couldn’t take the pressure (and is responsible for most of the sacks too – he cannot make up his mind to throw the ball).

    The green bay pea pickers are truly a crappy crappy team. No wonder favre wanted out!

    Last year i picked Minnesota and Pittsburgh for the Super Bowl, unfortunately we did’nt have the leader at QB. Right now, it would seem that these two teams are the best in the league, and this year we should’ve beat the Steelers had it not been for the zebras, and a couple of fluke turnovers. Yeah, we’ll take em’ one at a time, but this year we’re not gonna choke. Our defense looks better than the Saints, i still worry about the Cowboys, but after Sunday nights’ game versus Philly, i’m convinced our pass rush will rattle Romo and Brees if we meet in the playoffs. Go Purple People Eaters!!!!

    What are you on, freak? One minute you apologize, the next you say something stupid, xpackerfan. You should’ve stuck to your horrible Packers, cause’ you’re not welcome on Purple web sites. I thought my prediction was pretty accurate last year, stupid, accept for the fact that T-Jack blew it for us, but i did pick the Steelers, and they won. Hey you freak, until you’ve been in a pro camp yourself, like i was with New England, for a free agent tryout, don’t try to tell me you know anything about football, until your candy-a#s has been in the trenches, you don’t know sh#t. Unless you’ve got something about football to add to the blog, go somewhere else and play your little harassing games, cause it’s obvious you know nothing about football, especially Viking football. Do you even know who Mic Tinglehoff was? How about Joe Kapp, Chuck Foreman or Alan Page? I thought so, you’re no Vikings’ fan, so go blow away in the wind you pussy.
