Polishing it Off

This one was over by the half.  The Vikings scored 24 in the second quarter to take a 17 point lead, and the Bears never threatened in the second half, despite starting things off with a long kick-off return to set themselves up in great field position (the Bears ended up settling for 3 after a big Vikings defensive stand, and that was basically all she wrote).

There are going to be negative things to talk about despite the giant trouncing on the scoreboard and in the stats.  Adrian Peterson had 2 more fumbles.  There were loads of penalties.  The kick coverage was, frankly, dismal.  There was even a missed extra point.  But, overall, the Vikings were dominant once again, while the Bears…they are just flat-out feeble.

With the Vikes now at 10-1, we await Monday night’s showdown between the Saints and Patriots, which could leave Minnesota in a first-place tie for best record in the NFC.  Yup, that’s where we’re at:  talking playoff positioning 11 games in, and not sweating whether we’ll even make the postseason.

Life is good.

    Here’s the deal, YES, the vikings have talent, loads of talent, but they are still lacking in football intelligence. Yes Favre is a smart guy, but many of the other players seem to lack the smarts that they’ll need in order for them to take it to the next level, and typically the two teams that get to the super bowl base their games around the talent that they possess but more importantly on the overall teams decision making capabilities, a team with high number of penalties and fumbles is not an indication of an intelligently disciplined team. ie… Peterson is one of the best runners of all time, and yet he still fumbles more than any other back in the league, he knows his weakneses, and yet he still repeats the same fumbling mistakes over and over again, when will he learn to cover the ball with both of his hands and arms when he’s in the clutches of an opposing defense? In order to win the super bowl they have to become a smarter team and that means making better decisions upon the field of play.

It looks pretty promising and its backed by a clickback guarantee which means your going to get your money back if you don’t like the system or it simply doesn’t work. Has anyone tried anything like this?
