Wild Card Team Makes Super Bowl

Minnesota Vikings fans are probably glad the Pittsburgh Steelers made it to the Super Bowl. It makes their victory over us seem a little less painful because, well, they are the best team in the NFC after all. I hope they go on to beat the Seattle Seahawks because seeing a number six seed team make it to the Super Bowl and win will be a big triumph considering they had to basically win five road games in a row to get there.

A Good Farewell to 2005

Our 2005 season finale against the Bears was the best way to go out, but I wish we would have made the playoffs. I am considering buying tickets to the Super Bowl but not if the Broncos beat the Steelers because I’d Rather see the Steelers battle the Carolina Panthers.

Childress Joins Vikings With High Hopes

Brad Childress has been named the Minnesota Vikings new coach. He is the seventh coach in franchise history and some believe a great choice for the position. He took weak college teams like Illinois and Wisconsin and polished them into Rose Bowl and Big Ten championship teams. His NFL record is just as impressive. His work with the Eagles was a paramount example of how he can strengthen and hone his team into a playoff contender in a matter of a few years. We have high hopes for his time with the Vikings and see his time with the Eagles as a great achievement and a good omen for things to come.

Vikings Final Win-Loss 9-7

The Chicago Bears gave the win to the Vikings on Sunday. They rested most of their starters with the playoffs in sight and really allowed us to clinch the victory. The Minnesota Vikings played a fine game despite with Brad Johnson making 27 completions for a season high. We scored 24 unanswered points and we rushed for 149 yards. Our defense played very hard and we made some amazing plays on offense. All in all we posed more of a threat than the Green Bay Packers and if we had played the Bears last week they might not be the NFC North Champs.
