Vikes Win in NY (really NJ)!!!
Could the Vikes actually make the playoffs? I'm not gonna hold my breath but at 5-6 they are in the race for a wildcard berth. Four of their last five games are against opponets with losing records (Bears, 49ers, Denver, Redskins) and the fifth game is this week against the Lions at home; The Lions have a 3 game losing streak. Three of the last five are home games. It's hard to believe but the Vikes could conceivably win out and be 10-6. I am guessing that 9-7 will be good enough for the playoffs. Like I said, I won't hold my breath even with AP coming back this week.

Ice Update:Ice is on Platte and Bulldog(???), however I am in no hurry to go out and test it. It's conceivable that I will be out within the next 2-3 weeks.

Happy Thanksgiving All!
Especially to family and the U.S. Armed Forces.

For the record: Thanksgiving 2007 was quiet with the Dinner being me, mom, Dad, and older brother Jeff. We all took an after meal nap. Todd and the girls were in Hoboken and Steve and the girls were in Florida. The food was excellent, Mom cooked a small turkey. There was a light dusting of snow on the ground, the Packers kicked Lion tail, the Cowboys kicked Jet tail, the Colts kicked somebodies tail that I didn't see cause it was on NFL network. The big news of the day was the Gander Mtn was open today, Tori Hunter signed a 90million $ deal with the Angels, and Jay Leno had to show last years Thanksgiving program due to the writers strike.

Also of note is that on November 20 was my 3rd Blogirthday or Blogiversary. You can check out the past 3 years in the archives which are down aways on the right colomn.

The return of Daunte...

Vikes Win!!!

Well Daunte Culpepper was back in Minnesota for a football game today. I was a big Culpepper supporter up until the point he gave up on the Vikes. At that point I joined the "Chokepepper" bandwagon and wished him nothing but failure. Failure is exactly where Dante landed, first with the Dolphins, now with the Raiders. I really could care less what happens to Dante from now on, I'm over it. It was however good to see the Vikes beat Daunte in there first meeting since the falling out.

It's kind of sad to say but Culpepper would be an upgrade from anything we have at the QB position right now. I just don't think Tavaris has it in him to be a big league quarterback.

It's really to bad that Adrian Peterson got injured last week, cause I think he would have had a shot at 200yards vs. the Raider run defence. Sure Chester did a great job with 164 and 3 TD's, but I think Adrian would have done even better.

As for the blowout by the Packers last week, that was just a pathetic performance by the purple. If I were Chilly I would have kicked the field goal rather than get the doughnut. It sucked that Mewelde Moore got in and had the ball bounce off his hands for a turnover in the red zone. After this game, I'm not so sure that coach Chilly should get a 3rd year.
