    [size=13pt]Vikings' greatest upset was vs. 49ers[/size]

    Back in the 1987 playoffs, Anthony Carter had a phenomenal game in beating San Francisco. Minnesota has to avoid overlooking the 49ers today.

    ...NINERS (+8.5) over Vikings
    We're in December, which means we're in the month when bad teams start covering artificially pumped-up spreads like this one. Regardless, the contest for "Coolest Newcomer of the Year" is down to two candidates:

    Great Adrian Peterson

    Great Adrian singlehandedly turned around a moribund Vikes franchise; Isaac saved an unlikable "Real World" cast. The Vikes fell apart in Green Bay when Great Adrian left with an injury; same for the "Real World" house when Isaac disappeared for two weeks. Great Adrian had the record-setting 296-yard game; Isaac had the record-setting moment when he swam naked in his house's giant fish tank. Great Adrian is averaging an astonishing 6.5 yards per carry; Isaac is dating the best-looking girlfriend in "Real World" history. Great Adrian has Vikings fans dreaming of an entire decade with him as their franchise guy; same with "Real World/Road Rules Challenge" fans and Isaac. Both of them have signature styles that we haven't seen before, and both of them bring a ton of stuff to the table and take nothing off it.

    Here's why I'd give a slight edge to Isaac with a month to go: I haven't gotten an e-mail about Peterson nearly as glowing and psychotic as the Isaac-related e-mail from my friend Jacoby after he saw the fish tank scene: "I mean for [expletive's] sake ... can this guy get any awesomer? He is now so awesome that I am experiencing internal Isaac blacklash as a self-defense mechanism so I don't get too down on myself. I would seriously go to one of his 'speaking engagements' just to be in the same room as him. I am an Isaac groupie. I would never talk to any of my current friends again if I could trade them for Isaac, Cahutta and Ace."

    (Now there's your "Sportsman of the Year!" Imagine if SI had put Isaac on its cover instead of Brett Favre? I would have been fine with this.)...

    NINER INSIDER by Kevin Lynch

    December 8, 2007

    Defensive end Marques Douglas could write the manual on how to beat the Vikings, the 49ers opponent tomorrow on Bill Walsh Field. Douglas, who will be a free agent at the end of the season unless the 49ers re-sign him, had his best game as a 49er last year against Minnesota.
