Move Over New Orleans, it’s Minnesota’s
Yes the Vikings lost yet again to the Saints
to open the season but without their two
starting corners, their best receiver and
a rusty quarterback.
Here’s what the Vikings have learned. They
must gain home field advantage in the Playoffs
and they will. They must get Greg Camarillo
involved more in the offense, and they will.
They must figure out a role for Toby Gerhardt
other than the bench, and they will. And
they must figure out how to get Bernard
Berrian deep, and they will.
It took my beloved Saints 42 years to finally
win a Super Bowl and now it’s time to break
the half century blockade keeping the Vikings
from taking home the Lombardi trophy. Who
else better to bring it home than beloved
Packer himself, Brett Favre.
Everybody keeps talking about how Favre’s
seasons keep ending in a game losing interception
but in both the Giants and Saints Championship
games it wasn’t Favre’s interceptions that
lost the games. With the Giants it took
a miracle long distance field goal during
a blizzard and with the Saints, an overtime
drive capped by yet another miracle field
goal - especially if you saw the Saints
kicker in game one of this year.
Brett is ready and it’s a perfect scenario.
With Sidney Rice out for the first half
of the season it will allow him to finally
set up some rhythm with Berrian and their
latest great acquisition, Greg Camarillo.
Peterson will not fumble this season and
when Gerhardt gets going everybody will
forget about Chester Taylor.
As for everyone’s pick to represent the
NFC, Green Bay, remember you heard it hear
first. Brett Favre will never lose a game
to the Packers and that means they finish
behind the Vikings.
Super Bowl 45 Champions. Minnesota after
a 50 year draught… WOW I can’t wait!
