Favre Fever

Yes! The dream continues! No one can deny that this Vikings offense is championship caliber, and in the last few games they have been showing how much juice they really have. Clearly, Brett Favre is playing at peak performance levels, and with him the Vikes’ offense has to be one of the most complete in the league with Adrian, Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin, and so many others. It really makes you wonder why Brett stuck with The Pap as long as he did.

But today it was the Vikings’ defense that really shined as they completely hammered the despised Cowboys. Only the most emotionally dead NFL fan wouldn’t admit to experiencing pleasure watching pretty boy Tony Romo being chased and smacked around today by Jared Allen and Ray Edwards, and the cuts to him sitting on the sidelines sulking were priceless. Hey Tony, what hot celebrity date are you going on tonight!?

Next stop: The Saints for the championship. This will be a tough one. But even hardcore Green Bay fans I know are getting behind Minnesota. Who couldn’t support Brett and the Vikings in this magical run for the big win? As far as I am concerned, Brett Favre has been the sports story of the year (at least on a national level that is, excluding the forthcoming Winter Olympics and World Cup 2010).

Go Vikings!

I missed your posts following the Vikings’ losses.

I know it must hurt seeing Favre play the best he has ever played as a Viking, and loving it. I suggest you stop drinking the hatorade and get on board the bus Dave.

I think he stuck with the Packers because he liked playing there and they paid him a bunch of money.

Anyway, Sidney Rice is a great player who barely gets any mention.

That is true. He is a solid receiver and has developed great rhythm with Brett, along with Visanthe Shancoe. Ironically, Adrian Peterson still gets more attention than the other offensive players even though his season hasn’t been nearly as explosive as his first one was with the Vikings.

Having said that, he is still one of my favorite Vikings players and probably one of the best RBs in the game. The fact that he remains such a threat and the opponents have to focus attention on him so much is one of the reasons why the Vikes’ passing game has been so successful this year.

I can’t wait to see how things will go down on Sunday. I will be crushed if the Vikes lose, but man their run this year has been one of the funnest and most exciting sports experiences in recent memory.

How’s that Favre Fever working out for you these days?

I was waiting for a post about last night’s game, but forgot that we don’t get those after Vikings losses. 

Since comments aren’t allowed in the post anymore, I’ll just mention here how spot-on my prediction was.

OK, OK, damnit - the egg is on my face on this one… But I was having a ball as long as it lasted. It WAS a great run.

How about World Cup 2010? I heard that England, Slovenia and Algeria were shaking in their boots at which group they got in. wink
