    [size=13pt]Vikings put pedal to the floor, crush Lions[/size]

    Super rookie Adrian Peterson returned and darted through the division-rival Lions for two TD and 116 yards. A couple of late gadget plays didn't swing the tide of the blowout, but the no-holds-barred message was clear.

    The bandwagon won't be big enough now that the Vikings have bounced back from a 34-0 licking at the hands of the Packers to win three games in a row and put themselves in position to make the playoffs.....

    It's so good to see us ascending in December, and starting to play our best football. The team is really playing in "sync", with our best performance of the year with 227 yards passing, and 216 yards rushing. This by far is the best game of the Childress era (BGCE). Peterson's comeback, ask nothing but air Kenoy Kennedy, and Tarvaris playing like a NFL QB with more confidence really has this team fighting for him.

    Childress stated that it takes 21 days to build a habit, and after that embarrasing defeat to the Pack we have regrouped and refocused, and are ready to tear down the stretch run to the playoffs.

    We are a young team and the young guys are really stepping up, 4 of the 6 touchdowns we scored last week were by rookies. Man this is gonna be a exciting run to the finish.
