Former Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman recently shared his thoughts about his former team losing to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11.
On Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings had a historically bad performance in a 37-point loss to the Dallas Cowboys inside U.S. Bank Stadium.
Since then, many have offered their opinions on Minnesota’s embarrassing loss to Dallas, including former Vikings general manager Rick Spielman.
Rick Spielman reacts to Minnesota Vikings loss in Week 11 to Dallas Cowboys
Spielman didn’t hold anything back when talking about Minnesota’s performance on Sunday. The former Vikings general manager referred to the play of his old team as “horrible” and “very flat” in their terrible loss to the Cowboys.
As for a reason why Minnesota suffered such a bad loss on Sunday, Spielman believed that Dallas felt they had something to prove after their surprise loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 10, and the Vikings might have been riding a little too high after their emotional win over the Buffalo Bills last week.
The former Minnesota general manager did end his reaction by saying that he believes his old squad is still a “very good football team [that has] shown they know how to win games [this season].”
Obviously, Spielman is going to think the Vikings are a very good team since most of the roster is still filled with guys that he signed or drafted during his tenure with the franchise.
With that being said, he could be onto something when he points to the emotions of last week’s big win over the Bills being something that might have had a negative effect on Minnesota in their loss to the Cowboys.
Whatever the reason was for the Vikings’ poor performance, they better figure it out quickly since their next game is on Thursday against a tough New England Patriots team.
