    was it 4-6 or 3-5?
    For some reason I was thinking 3-5.

    Let's just hope these guys keep rolling. I honestly think if we win these next 2 games though, we won't be looked at as underdogs.
    Damn.

    I remember the 87 vikes. You guys destroyed us in the playoffs.

    I hope we meet again this year. (Would have to be the NFC Championship game)

    The agony of rememberance.

    If memory serves my friend a certain man by the name of Green had alot to do with that "Drop".

    Minnesota then advanced to the Washington 6-yard line, but Wilson's fourth down pass, intened for running back Darrin Nelson in the end zone, was batted away from him by cornerback Darrell Green with 52 seconds remaining and the Redskins ran out the clock.[1]
    Darrin is still, to this day, one of my favorite players regardless of that play.
    ;D
    It was a drop, plain and simple.
    Yes, I am sure happy that we drafted Darrin Nelson.
    We couldn't have gotten a better back when we drafted him.
    Oh wait, there was a great back that was drafted after Nelson.
    Do you remember him?
    He won the the Heisman in 1981.
    Coach John Robison said about him, "The greatest player I ever saw".
    Marcus Allen would have looked great in purple.
    I agree on both counts. Nelso flat out dropped that pass that could have brought us our first SB victory and the fact that we drafted Nelson over Marcus Allen has pissed me off for decades. I finally let it go this year when we ended up with AP. He is going to heal many of the ills that have befallen this team if we can keep him healthy and remember even he needs a blocker once in a while
