    A few points about the season, and the upcoming match at Phi

    The first point that must be made - Culpepper's amazing year and Moss' ailments aside, is that Antoine Winfield is a freakin' pimp. Actually, pimp doesn't quote cover it, but it'll have to do. When Brian Williams matures more, and I believe he might (though I'd still try to draft a Marlin Jackson if we had the chance), Winfield has given our defense a new fire.

    We have learned the importance of a good linebacking corps - we needed one throughout the year and still need one, but we're getting better.

    We've learned that Randy Moss is an amazing player - we knew that already - but a fickle leader. He's a great guy, we know this, but he has to know that he is under a microscope and needs to take it easy.

    On that subject, though Moss did burn him when it counted, and make me knock over and break a $100 glass in the process, Al Harris is someone we will have to remember in the future. I hate the Pack, but Al Harris got shafted from the Pro Bowl - Lito Sheppard did not face the type of competition he did.

    We have also learned that Denny Green was right - nobody plays like we play when we play. Daunte is maturing, and will continue to do so, and as his maturation continues, so will our success.

    We SHOULD be learning that we need a go-to running back. The RBBC only works with two backs and a third down specialist - in my opinion, Michael Bennett, Mewelde Moore, and Moe Williams (or Onterrio, if he can block,) and we need to learn this lesson real fast, before Corey Simon teaches us.

    We've learned that once a Chicago Bear, always a Chicago Bear (read: Marcus Robinson.)

    We've learned that Joe Buck is so concerned about morality that he works on a television station that brought us Temptation Island, and other such clean and novel television shows.

    And finally, we have learned that confidence is EVERYTHING. Not our confidence - it counts for very little - but that of the team.

    Have no expectations of the Vikings this Sunday, but have hope. It worked last week. SKOL VIKES!

    A few points about the season, and the upcoming match at Phi

    I have learned many things this season as well.

    I have learned that I do, in fact, love Daunte C-Pepp.

    I have learned that I do, in fact, love Jimmy K ( it has sucked without him, but not as much as it could have)

    I have learned that I love watching our defense play good defense

    I have learned that there is still really nothing special about our special teams, except that most of the people involved with it should be wearing different types of helmets, and are special in a different way.

    I have learned that I actually physically shake before a Packer Viking playoff game.

    I have learned that the Vikings are like a son, they may disappoint, but you still believe that they can do whatever they put their minds to, and that nobody elses sons are, or ever will be as awesome as yours.

    We have also learned the value of a reliable kicking game, both for field goals and kickoffs.

    i have learned

    I have learned what it means to be a "true" fan. I was always a true fan but I think this year comes close to being one of the most frustrating years in my Vikings fan history. I have learned though that no matter what they do, I always have faith and I will always stand up for them no matter what anyone else says. I have experienced the nervousness (I shake too bdubya) of knowing we were playing the Packers in the first playoff game when everyone said we weren't going to win, but then the sheer joy of being able to watch them kick the crap out of them. I have also learned that I really can't stand Joe Buck and from now on I'm listening to the radio along with my T.V. so I don't have to listen to him criticize the Vikings. I have learned that no mattter how much sometimes I wish Moss would change his attitude, he never will and I accept him no matter what he does even mooning the Packers fans. I have learned that the media are a bunch of losers who don't know a good story when they see it, they don't care about the important stuff in life, all they care about is putting others down no matter what the cost, well I guess I kinda knew that before. I have learned that even though the Pioneer Press calls themself Minnesota's number one paper, they really are Packers fans. I have also learned how cool it is to be able to talk about the Vikings with other people who care about them as much as I do, meaning all of you. As corny as it may sound it's true. I pray to God that the Vikes can go out on Sunday and kick the Eagles butts, it's our turn to show everyone what we're made of, it's our turn to make it all the way!

    It's good to know that there isn't something wrong with me. Unless there actually is and it just affects you too.

    Ok you think there's something wrong with you now you can hear about me and determine that you might actually be the normal one. The whole week leading up to the game I had butteflies in my stomach just thinking about it. On Saturday night before the game I couldn't sleep cause I was so excited/nervous, on Sunday I was literally shaking, if you had seen my hands you would have thought I was on a caffeine buzz, but no it was all because of my Vikes. My heart was beating a hundred miles a minute, and I was clenching my teeth so hard my jaw hurt except for the times when we got touchdowns, and at the end of the game when I was able to finally breathe, and yes I do hold my breath for the majority of the game. And finally at the end of the game, I was so excited that I couldn't stop laughing, and my face hurt from smiling. Ok so now determine who the normal one is.

    Why you picking Lito Shepherd out? He had the best numbers of any of the cb's picked to the Pro Bowl. Why not Ronde Barber or Dre Bly? And if you think Al Harris is better than him...he wasn't let go by the Eagles in favor of Sheldon Brown and Lito Shepherd for nothing. He's solid, but that's about where it ends. I like his aggressiveness at times, but it also gets him in trouble.

    Hmmm, I still don't know. The reason I was shaking is because I was freaking freezing. The heat was on, and I was covered in blankets, but I was freezing and almost every part of my body was shaking. I wasn't sick. At all. But I could have fooled myself. I was fine until about 5 minutes before the game when I turned on the TV to watch. All through the game I just sat there, shaking, freezing, with my jaw sitting open, not wanting to move for fear of jinxing the team. At halftime, I finally tried to move my mouth, but it was actually stuck there, and I had to pop it back to where it should be.

    Why did we ever let Mitch Berger go? I remember screaming when they didn't resign him. I say this because I had just witnessed the Skins go through 4 or 5 kickers that season and saw how much it cost them...sure enough, without Berger to kickoff, we couldn't resign Gary Anderson (who was still kicking very well and making decently long FGs)...since the the kicker's spot has been a revolving door (and has taken up TWO roster spots). Also our punting game has suffered...and we have been through a few punters as well. Why couldn't they have left well enough alone...dumb butt front office! ukeright:
