Let me think crgildart... are you by any chance from Minnesota?

I have to say, I was surprised how comprehensively the Vikings took the Cowboys apart.

1964-1972 Oklahoma, Virginia, Korea, Virginia
1972-1982 Minnesota-disappointed by Vikings many times but still like them
1982-1986 Oklahoma (college) Sooners NCAA Football champs senior year
1983-1989 New York There for 86 Mets WS and Giants SuperBowl Champions
1989-1999 Plano Texas Cowboys 3 SuperBowl titles while I was there


With Adrian Peterson being a great Oklahoma product it was pretty easy for me to pull for the Vikes this year.

And Favre's final pass is an interception.

Fixed it for you   ..just like his last pass as a Packer.  I suspect Farve will die of complications from pain killer addiction in his fifties just like all those pro wrestlers do.



I couldn't believe the Vikes put the ball on the ground that much and were still in the game at the end.  Neither team looks as good as the Colts.  But. alas I will pull for the NFC in the SuperBowl.  One thing is for certain..  They'd better order a lot more booze out there in Miami to stock up now that the Aint's are headed out dat way

Viking did the honorable thing after that many fumbles and INTs, 

They lost!

$64 question, can Saints stop the Colts?  I think not.

If da Brees can have his A game, they won't need much of a defense.  Remember that the Vikings have one of the best front 4 defenses in the league..along with a great D-back corp.
As poor as the Saints played last night ya can't win with that many turn-overs......

"There is no quarterback, past or present, which could have taken the abuse that Favre did and still almost lead his team to victory. He once again defied the odds and showed why he will go down as one of the all-time greats." - The Bleacher Report

Fixed it for ya'.

Almost is a word that separates the glory of victory and the anguish of defeat. Many QB's have risen to that challenge and staked their claim on greatness. Favre is a great QB but to place a loss in a best performances of all time is ludicris. If so why did he lose ?

Ever heard of YA Tittle or John Unitas ?  Wanna see a beating ? Watch the less protected early greats perform under fire and pain. In comparison these  recent QB's are protected by rule and sympathy to allow the show to proceed with it's 'special ' players intact.

That's a little more accurate.

There is just something about having the Boy Scout logo on their helmets that makes dem Ain'ts seem very "vinceable"

"Who dat bunch of boy scouts uvver der?"

I'm still pulling for the NFC anyway
post #43 of 59
Who dat, be my Aints ?  Not any more.  Gettin it done with a Reggie Bush show would be great and keep the ball out of Manning's hands any way they can .
post #44 of 59
 My heart says Saints, but my head says Colts.

I'll be rootin' for the Saints though. They need this win and an old buddy of mine is the D-Coordinator down there. Let's hope he has something special cooked up for Peyton.

Hot damn it IS Tuesday isn't it?

post #47 of 59

Wow, if his ankle didn't come back he may be serious about leaving the game this time.

 

Imagine being a 40 year old gimp getting chased by those young meat eaters.  That could truly cause the end of your world. 

post #48 of 59

So the latest is that Farve hasn't said anything official to Vikings coaches or staff about NOT returning.

post #49 of 59

This guy can be a real soap opera in August.

I am sure in the future we will see a headline... Brett Farve dead at XX, retirement still uncertain. 

post #51 of 59

He's meeting with his ankle surgeon again next week. I'm guessing it will be at least some time after that until he announces anything.

Today's Tuesday Farve News

 

The Vikings appear to have convinced Brett Favre to return for a 20th NFL season.

 

 

 

Oh, and by the way I'm really sorry about Reggie Bush having to retrun his Heisman Trophy

post #53 of 59

I guess the meeting with his orthopedic surgeon went well. I think this whole decision has hung on his ankle. Now the big question...can he start 15 straight games and get to 300 straight starts?

Brad Childress' House Egged Monday Night (AP)

Minneapolis police reported that an individual attempted to "egg" Brad Childress' house Monday night.


An empty egg carton was recovered at the scene. According to police, two eggs hit Mr. Childress' house, 3 eggs went over his house and hit his neighbor's back door, 2 eggs hit the houses of each of his next door neighbors and the remaining 3 eggs were found broken on the ground near the carton from where the individual threw them.

Judging by   what was hit, police officials say they consider Brett Favre to be   the primary suspect.

Bears, Vikings to settle their differences outside in Monday matchup

(Sports Network) - NFL outdoor football will return to Minnesota for the first time in 29 years this coming week, though that wasn't the intended plan.

With their normal facility still undergoing repairs, the Minnesota Vikings will take on the Chicago Bears this Monday night at the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium in a Week 15 divisional showdown that could declare this year's champion of the NFC North.

Man, has it really been almost 30 years since they retired The Met?

I heard it mentioned that the Vikings might have their eyes on Donavan McNabb!

 

They had Tarkenton for the most of his good years then went with Ugh, Tommy Kramer.
Then over the years...
Archie Manning out to pasture
Jim McMahan out to pasture
Warren Moon out to pasture
Dante Culpepper ended up in alcohol rehab
Brad Johnson out to pasture
Bret Farve out to pasture.

Yep, McNabb fits the "Old Mold"
