    On a side note, you have amazed me with your refrain from all the Smoot bashing this week so far.

    Knowing he would be welcome if he returned to Washington made Smoot willing to sign a five-year deal that might have been less than what he could have received had he negotiated with more than one team.

    "Money wasn't what I was chasing this time," he said. "It was a chance to be happy and play high-level football."


    I don't seem to recall anyone preventing him from playing high-level football in Minnesota.

    This game will be physical and will come down to who makes the least mistakes and who wants it more.
    I hope we show Mr. Smoot how to play high-level football.

    There, a little subtle Smoot bashing just for you!
    ;D
    I really thought my pal Singer would have been defending ole Smoot a bit more this week.
    Usually he is quick on the keyboard when it comes to Smoot or Memo.

    I for one like his loyalty to them.
    ;D

    The Vikings' insistence on taking one game at a time should pay dividends as they prepare for Sunday night's game against Washington. In terms of playoff implications, this one is as big as it gets.....

    Sixteen NFL teams either have clinched a playoff spot or haven't been eliminated. Seven of them have been forced to start at least two quarterbacks. The Panthers lead the way with four, followed by the Vikings with three.

    "Obviously, you hope it doesn't happen to you," said Redskins coach Joe Gibbs, who has had to turn over his team's playoff push to backup Todd Collins, who went 10 years, two days and three teams between NFL starts. "But should it happen, your backup quarterback becomes one of the most critical decisions you can make."

    Gibbs put Redskins owner Daniel Snyder's money where his mouth was last season. Longtime Chiefs assistant Al Saunders was hired as associate head coach/offense. He wanted to bring Collins with him, even though Collins hadn't started a game in eight seasons with the Chiefs...

    Check out the Game Notes for this Sunday’s game as the Vikings play host to the Washington Redskins in a key NFC showdown.
    Minnesota currently sits at 8-6 and holds a one-game lead over the Redskins and the New Orleans Saints, who are both 7-7.
    The Saints host the Philadelphia Eagles this week before closing out the regular season at Chicago in week 17.
    Meanwhile, after their game against the Vikings, Washington wraps up its regular season as they play host to the Dallas Cowboys.

    Note: To view this week's Game Notes, you must have the ability to download and view PDF files with a program such as Adobe Reader.

    The Vikings’ game against Washington on Sunday night is officially soldout, meaning it will be aired on NBC affiliate KARE (Ch. 11) in the Twin Cities. No corporate assistance was needed to sell the remaining seats.....

    ASHBURN, Va. - Nearly 10 months after he was cut by the Vikings, Fred Smoot will return to a place where he was truly miserable when the Washington Redskins play Minnesota at the Metrodome on Sunday night....
