Vikings Fumble Away Season, Saints hoist Halas Trophy

Where’s your messiah now, Viking fans?

I would like to personally thank Drew Brees and the Saints for saving all of us from two weeks of Favre-ageddon.   The Vikings did everything to gift wrap this one for New Orleans with a plethora of turnovers.  (Sorry, I had to use plethora – it was on my Word of the Day calendar today.)  Check out the highlights:

Sure, there are still plenty of annoying story lines to follow heading into the Super Bowl: the Saints will save the city of New Orleans because of this win, the Archie Manning New Orleans angle, the Peyton Legacy, etc., but none of those come close on my annoyance-meter to the pathetic Favre slurping that the networks would be doing over the next two weeks.

Congrats to the Saints on their first ever trip to the Super Bowl.

Seeing them win made me remember being at Soldier Field for the Bears’ NFC Championship victory over New Orleans three years ago.  Seems like so long ago, doesn’t it?

    The Vikings, with Favre in command, creamed the NFC North. Understandably, you are aggrieved. Understandably, your grief has turned into hatred for this acclaimed future Hall of Famer. Crawl into a pool of despair and rot. Despite the interception, despite the 5 turnovers, the Vikings were still just 3 points short. The Bears were about 65 points short!

    … said James whose team was beaten by said Bears which actually cost them Home Field Advantage. Despite our lousy season, I am thrilled that our lousy-ass team had even the smallest part in preventing the Vikings from advancing.

    I realized watching this game that it’s not Favre I hate as much as the over the top coverage of Favre. With every hit, they have to show him wincing and his wife gasping in the stands. It’s worse than a fucking Lifetime Movie my wife would watch. I could not have survived two weeks of Favre Super Bowl coverage.

    Enjoy the next seven months of Favre retirement watch and wondering what if the best running back in the game could hold onto the damn ball and the future Hall of Famer didn’t throw it away when you absolutely could not afford it.
