The Good

  1. Minnesota Vikings regular season football is back!  Fans have been waiting all year for this.  It’s the chance to see Teddy Bridgewater and Adrian Peterson on the field together at the same time and see what kind of magic they have together.  So just watching regular season Vikings game is a plus!
  2. Beautiful blocked punt from Andrew Sendejo.  Not only did he get the start at safety, but he made a key special teams play to set up a nice return by Marcus Sherels.  It looks like special teams might be the best part of this Minnesota Vikings team at this point.
  3. The Harrison Smith hit on Colin Kaepernick.  That hit is enough to rattle almost any quarterback.  You notice that after that play, he was much more likely to drop to the ground than try to make a play to the sidelines.  You don’t want to take too many licks like that.
  4. This game is over.  I’m absolutely serious when I say that the best thing about this game is that it is over.  Anyone who tuned in to this dumpster fire knows exactly what I’m talking about.  The only worse thing is that I have to record a podcast to talk about this crap show, so I can’t just forget about it.
  5. Nothing.  I want to forget this game even happened.
