Minnesota Viking Talk

Well Hello out there. Welcome to Vikings Hot Talk. I will be your host Cyrus Bahr. Just to let you in on what I plan to do on this blog, I hope to raise some interest in some of my opinions on the Minnesota Vikings and other sporting issues out there. I hope to get our fan base out there to voice there opinion in a free but tactful way. I hope to generate a little controversy with some of the local columnists like Mike McNegative, aka Mike McFeely. Enough about me. What about you people out there. I want you to voice your opinion. Without you this site will not be possible. So let's speak our minds. Lets talk sports and lets see what people really know out there.

All Minnesota Sports Chat:: In Gus We Trust.

Well finally a win. I didn't get to write after last week because I was quite busy but the move was made and it looks like it paid off. This is exactly what the doctor ordered, serve me up one Gus Frerotte to get this season rolling again. I know I know you are all going to say,"Cyrus I thought you supported TJack, you thought we should be more patient." After the Colts game my mind really changed. It seems as if TJack lost a little bit after his injury this preseason. I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt after the Green Bay game but the Colts game I saw some things that were quite troubling to me.
1st off in the Colts game it seemed as if he was rattled just by the booing. As an NFL quarterback you have to have more of a spine than that, which is something I am now questioning with TJack. He may have a future but his future isn't now. So thus the decision to put in the GusMan. I think it may have been a way to save Chilly's job as well. It looks as if this decision may pay off. Now defenses have to honor the pass more which will open up lanes for AP and Chester Taylor.
At first a fan would think that this was a call from Zygi but after more research it has been found that Bevell and qb Coach Kevin Rogers saw things that deemed this move to be necessary. I wouldn't doubt if some veterans in search of a 1st championship may have a say or two about it as well. By the looks of the way the defense played I think it injected some life into them as well. Let's hope that things continue to improve. We shall have what could be our mirror image of a test coming up next in the Tennessee Titans. I believe our strength maybe a little better than ours but our lone disadvantage is the fact that I could see us getting slightly outcoached in this game. I pick the Titans in a close one 16-13.
Finally each week from here on out I will pick the offensive and defensive players of the game. For week 1 I will say offensive would be Adrian Peterson with our defensive MVP being Greenway for he made some plays in the backfield and was all over the field.Week 2 I would have to say our offensive player of the game would once again be Adrian Peterson and defensive player of the game would be Pat Williams for his stonewalling of Addai(I still don't think that it was a td). Week 3 I will say the offensive player of the game would be Gus Frerotte for sparking the whole team and I will have to pick co-mvp's for defense. Antoine Winfield and EJ Henderson are the most deserving of this award. Man was that a great trifecta of a play by Winfield and Henderson looked like a man possessed out there. This is going to be one heck of a defense barring any serious injuries to key players.
