    Watched 1998 Championship game for 1st time..

    I've got every vikings game on tape since 1989. I haven't watched the
    nfc championship game against the falcons since it was taped. Just
    watched it for the first time and still gets me as riled now as it
    did then.
    The reason I watched it was to see the difference in the way moss
    played that season as he has played this season. He was just plain
    awesome that year. Had 17 tds; won rookie of the year award. He was
    just plain explosive. He was singled covered most of the time; imagine that.
    I say all of that to say this; he was single covered mostly because
    of the receivers we had on that team. Of course, it started with
    carter, but we had reed, hatchette, and palmer not to mention the
    humongous te in andrew glover.
    Moss has not been as explosive lately because the receivers we have
    now don't compare to the receivers we had then. Now I know their all
    young. Campbell is small but has speed; Burleson just doesn't seem to
    be able to get open. Bates....does he even play anymore. K-sasser is
    good as a checkdown receiver but he can't stretch the field and get
    into the middle of the field the way other te's can.
    I believe the reason that pep looks for moss is because he's the only
    receiver he feels comfortable with. It says alot when you're second
    leading receiver is a rb(Williams).
    We've become too predictable on offense. The other defenses don't
    have to repect our other receivers so they lay all over moss. We've
    got to have other guys STEP UP AND MAKE SOME PLAYS!!!!!
    Man, we were one field goal away from going to the show in '98. [V]
