    Re:NFC North Division Champs!!

    Darn right, NFC North Champs. And we're not stopping there, despite our setback tonight.
    ...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.

    It doesn't matter unless we step up and do something with it

    Now we just need to win one more game to take a bye. Something I think we will really need.
    We're bringing purple back.

    Wrong on some accounts & dead on in others. I'll definitely eat crow on winning the division & the fact that he Favre turned the ball over a lot fewer times than I expected, but lets not forget we lost 2 of our last 3 games.

    Lest not forget Mars was the one claiming Favre would win us the SB. He has not done that as of yet, so he hasn't proven me wrong on that. In fact he backed out of his bet.

    It was NP that won the $20 bet when I said that Favre would fail to deliver us an NFCN Championship. Thanx to the Packers sucking early & the Bears sucking all year, he has done just that.

    Last nights game was yet another indication, IMO, that Favre has definitely degraded from what he was earlier in the season. Play like that will net you 1 and done in the playoffs & again IMO, that's were we are headed.

    Some may call that being Mr. Negativity, but I call it taking off the Purple shades & being Mr. Honest. That last pass of his that was thrown into coverage, while a wide open Shiancoe stood alone in the endzone (most everyone here said Favre was great at making his reads) & was intercepted in the endzone was reminiscent of his gun-slinging. Also there were passes that would support the term "noodle arm".

    I loved the Favre shovel pass to Shiancoe though. I would have thought that the tendon he had cut would have affected his ability to do so. It was beautiful.

    What has happened to the so called "quick release" most here said we would see? 31 sacks thus far doesn't support that theory. Our line is to blame for some of it, just as it was last year (many here blamed Frerotte & Jackson for it), but he has been hanging on to the ball way to long too many times & on several occasions could have, but failed to throw it away to avoid the sack.

    Favre as well as many others, need to step up their game if we want to even think about a playoff run. Favre's QB rating went from the 100's most of the year thru November, but in December he is now had 79.4, 79,2 & 79.7 respectively. That is significant & unless you are a Favre CSAer or blind, that is definitely degrading late in the season. Right Marrdro?

    We won the NFCN when the Packers lost yesterday (some here call that "backing into the playoffs, LOL) are in the playoffs & have 11 wins. That is all moot moving forward, IMO. Now it's not about how many wins you've accumulated thus far in the season, it's now about how well the team can play in December, January & hopefully February.

    We have two more weeks to figure it out. Let's hope we do.

    Congratulation, Minnesota Vikings on back to back NFC North Champions. You've earned it. You are 11-3. This was just part of the process to achieving your ultimate goal. I don't think you will be satisfied with Division Champs. I'm raising a glass to your accomplishments. Now let's not rest on our laurels, and it's time to steamroller into the postseason and to Super Bowl glory.


    SKOL VIKINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Congratulations to the Wilf Ownership group, Rick and his Front Office staff, the Chiller and his coaching staff and the team.

    Been a very very very long time since I've seen back to back divisional championships from this organization. Regardless of the outcome of this season, I continue to be very excited about the path this team is on.

    Heres to continued success this season as well as a "Three Peat" next year.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Good to have the NFCN locked up. Now get the first round bye worked in and get ready to play some real football.

    Re:NFC North Division Champs!!

    Congrats to us, Although I would have like to win on the day we clinched the division, I'm not gonna be too down on 1/16th of the season, Every team in the league except one has lost, only 3 others have 11 wins though, We could end up 13-3 and that would easily exceed my pre-season expectations.
    Even if the Vikings lose, I can still find happiness in Bears, and Packer losses.
