Everyone I talk to, Packer fans and otherwise, seem to have a giant purple chubby for the Minnesota Vikings right now. Sorry folks, they're not that good.
Maybe it's just my hate for everything Minnesota in general, but anointing these guys Super Bowl Champions already is pathetic.
Great, you got through the Browns, the Lions, and the Niners. If that's not any reason to brag I don't what is. Barring the Browns game (perhaps the worst team in the NFL) the showings weren't all that impressive either. You were down to the Lions, down to the Niners, and only a last second LUCKY pass saved your ass and welcomed mine to the world of Favre is amazing all over again.
Gimme a break. That pass gets completed maybe one out of 50 times, if not less. It was a miracle pass, in a desperation moment, which has somehow turned the Minnesota Vikings into America's darling, again. It's not godlike, it's not historic, and it certainly isn't biblical.
Brent Favre, please reacquaint yourself with Al Harris and Charles Woodson. These are the two gentleman that are going to wreck your day on Monday night. We all know you can't play against the 3-4 defenses. It didn't take many Patriot games over the years to figure that one out. Al and Chuck will be eating the leftovers all day long.
Face it, you got a guy who can run, two fat asses on the defensive line, and a backwoods hick on the end and that's it. That may be enough for the cellar dwellers, but won't be enough against the Green Bay Packers. Consider Monday night your first step to 4-2. Exactly where you'll be after the Raven's game.
I remember a team last year that went 2-0 to start the season and was already headed to the big show in many people's minds. We all know how that worked out.
I expect the same thing here, a whole lot of hype followed by a colossal meltdown shortly thereafter. We all know why the Packers dumped Brett on the street. He can't win the big game.
This could be the biggest of them all.
I'm not buying it, drinking it, or even giving it the time of day. The Vikings are average, and trying to convince me otherwise is going to lead to the longest comment section ever.
Try me, you'll regret it.
