Viking bandwagon just picked up a new passenger
« on: December 10, 2007, 07:41:31 AM »

This comes as no surprise to Torp of course but FWIW:

http://sportsillustrated...._king/12/09/week14/5.html


i. Adrian Peterson rushed 14 times for three yards at San Francisco, and the Vikes won by 20 points. Yes, the tide is turning for the Vikes all right.

j. I'm no ratings maven, but I'll bet a dime that a Dallas-New England or Green Bay-New England Super Bowl would draw the biggest audience in American television history.

k. Why do I think the Vikings might have something to say about that?

Some talking head yesterday named the Vikes the hottest team in the NFC.   Huh?

Guess I'm not seeing it just yet although I'm we're not getting enough televised Minnesota games to really hold an opinion.  The Detroit and Giants wins are fairly impressive but Oakland and S.F. not so much. 

Just seems there are a couple of teams with a combined record of 23-3 might have something to say about who's hot and who's not.

7 and 6 of course has nothing on 12 and 1, and 11 and 2 respectively.  They are obviously the "hot" NFC teams this season.

Hot, I agree in terms of just "getting things together".  This is a completely different team the 2 and 5 debacle that opened the season.

Fair enough.  I defer to the distinguished gentleman from Minnesota homer.

I guess "hot" is in the eye of the beholder. Yeah, they're playing better than the beginning of the season, but let's not forget that even though they've won 4 in a row, two of them were against sub-.500 teams, and one was against a Detroit team that is only at 7-6 by having beaten some pretty awful teams (including the Bears twice, and that 2-5 Vikings debacle that started the season). Let's also not forget that 5 games ago the Vikes were shut out by the Packers.

Cowboys are undoubtedly the hottest team in the NFC, Packers being a close 2nd, IMO, though a strong argument could also be made for the Seahawks.

I think it's widely acknowledged that they were stealing our signals.

Now that you've brought fanboyism into the thread I don't think anything tops his love affair with Favre. There have been a couple stories that I thought were actually a little creepy.

At least someone in the game was reading them right.  Devil

At one point, the 'Aints had won 4 in a row too, beating SEA and JAC in that stretch. They've lost 3 of 4 since.

I won't diminish the effort by the Queen's D.  2 interceptions by the defensive line, one for a touchdown is impressive.

AP didn't get 14 carries for 3 yards by being ignored.  Peterson stays home, and Frannie doesn't commit 9 men in the box, and covers the soft screen better.

Now Williamson staying home.......... Devil  Grin

Ooops.  Wrong thread.
