Well once again we had a very close and competitive game against the Bears. This was a very closely fought battle and we all had to have known it was going to be this way. Every time we play these guys it is a nail biter and last night was no different. We won in somewhat ugly fashion but these are the dog days of december and it is meat grinding time. I give Kudos to Childress for turning this season around. I know all you naysayers out there will reply but that Plate of Crow is looking like it is almost ready to serve. All that I can say is go Philly and Buffalo. Do you realize that we can very possibly be a 5 seed in this conference?
Here is a shot out to Jim Souhan of the Star Trib. and all of you negative nellies out there. Why is it that there is always a few fans of the purple out there that always have got to rain on the purple parade. Souhan writes that TJack has still got a lot to learn and that he pretty much played terrible last night. If he truly played terribly than why did we win. Why did we have 375 yards of total offense. I know he threw 3 picks and had 1 fumble. But the first pick and fumble were clearly not his fault. So in reality 2 of the to's were his fault. But isn't the good supposed to outweigh the bad. I saw alot more good throws than bad throws. What about the strike to Kleinsasser in the seam. What about finding Boddy Wade multiple times when we needed a first down. How about that throw on 3rd and 10 to Fergie that nearly ended up a 70 yard plus td which would have set a Vikings Record. He only completed 64 % of his passes and threw for a career high 245 yards. Sure he didn't play the perfect game but he played far from terrible. It is so funny how our fans have such good memories when it comes to mistakes but they never remember the good plays. We all knew going in to this season that TJack would have his ups and downs. Then I was on the Viking Update Purple Thoughts thread and someone actually thought that his leg cramps were an act and that cramps shouldn't keep you out of the game. BS. Have any of you had leg cramps while playing football. It is absolutely impossible to play on because it hurts so damn bad. They though he was faking the injury because it was getting too tough. Bullpucky, this guy is tougher than we give him credit for. Did you see him get blasted by the Bears defender when he threw his 2nd pick. He came back from that. I was just waiting for a phonecall from my stubborn brother-in-law saying "see I told you he was injury prone." Remember being injury prone is more about luck than is about that individual. TJack is one tough cookie regardless what some of you there think.
So now come the Redskins another game that will be very hard fought. The Redskins are still alive in the playoff hunt so this could be a very tough game. Then on to Denver where I am the most concerned but we shall jump that hurdle when it nears. Skol Vikings!!!!
