    Favorite or Best Play of the 2009 season

    Lot of good ones, beating the Pack Twice, AD running over Randall Gay in the Pittsburgh game, any of Harvins KR for TD's but this one takes the cake for me

    Id have to agree. That play really seemed to get the positive vibes rolling on having Favre on the team and the Vikings serious contenders to go all the way. Amazing what one little play can do!

    I don`t think there`s any better play.

    The Harvin returns were great, but none really had teh impact that one play did. That single play exemplified why why brought Favre in. Imagine if we didn`t make that play, we might not even have the 2 seed

    SO FAR, that is my favorite. But we still have a lombardi trophy to hoist.
    ...Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.

    Sweeping the Packers is awesome. Sweeping the Packers with Favre is priceless.

    Re:Favorite Play or moment of the 20o9 season

    The TD pass in the '9ers game definitely takes the cake. Other awesome moments:

    The Hauschka miss in the Ravens game even though it wasn't a vikings achievement per say. I feel for the guy, him being an NC State alum and former Vikings practice squader but it was a big game at the time and the crowd exploded with the miss.

    The Adrian run against the Steelers where he trucked and stepped over Gay. Very nice but the interception a play later really killed the beauty of it.

    The Percy Harvin catch in Lambeau.

    The Percy Harvin run backs in the Steelers and Ravens games.

    Adrian's run against the Browns.

    Jared Allens sacks against Aaron Rodgers (both games)

    There's a lot of good ones in that video.

    The '9ers play was special for a few reasons though. Favre hadn't really "let loose" in a game up until that point. A lot of people really had their doubts about Favre prior to that point. Is he going to play like a chilly "system" QB, is he the Favre of old or the 22 INT's Favre of last year. He solidified himself as the leader of this team when he took hold of that game and then threw a miraculous game winner with 2 seconds on the clock. His season took off after that. Definitely my vote for best moment.

    Re:Favorite Play or moment of the 20o9 season

    The Favre to Lewis play was definitely it for me. That was the one regular season game I chose to attend in person. Even though things looked bleak (especially after the previous drive ended in failure), I knew that if the Vikings could get the ball back, with Favre they had a chance. The guy has made his career out of pulling rabbits out of his hat like that one. When Lewis caught that ball, the stadium exploded and my joy was unbounded. I remember screaming to ZDog "This is why we pay the man $12M a year!"

    My only regret is that my wife and daughter had left to go to the restroom with about 6 minutes remaining in the game. When they got out and she saw the score, the wife decided that the Vikes were going to lose and that they would just wait for us out in the concourse rather than trudge all the way back up to our seats in the 25th row of the upper deck. They did, however, go crazy when they heard the crowd erupt and saw what had happened on the monitors.
    SKOL VIKINGS!
