    They are claiming that the reason we won is because Hutch held on Taylor's 95 yrd run and I guess that was the difference in the game.
    Never mind the other 24 points we scored.
    Of course it is Fox that was claiming that the injury to Hasselbeck was intentional.
    I don't think they actually watch the games.
    Probably too busy tapping out text with one finger on their keyboards.

    I am as big of a FOX BASHER as any sports fan.....but if their powerranking paragraph is what you are referring to....I dont think they meant that Hutch was holding....but rather that he made a great play by "holding his block".
    Here it is again....

    #18 Vikings
    The Vikings won the “Steve Hutchinson Bowl” behind Brad Johnson’s arm and Chester Taylor’s legs. But Hutchinson, himself, played a major role in the biggest play of the game. By holding his block for an extra second as a hole opened up, Hutchinson gave Chester Taylor the running room needed for his game-breaking 90 yard touchdown scamper. The Vikings are now 4-2, heading into a Monday night showdown with the red-hot Patriots.


    At least that is the way that I read it.
    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    Saying we are top 5 in the NFC is pretty obvious. We are tied for the 3rd best record.

    bears, vikes, falcons, giants, saints

    --in order

    That's extremely generous. Consider this synopsis of the top 5 vs. winning teams:

    Bears:
    Beat Vikings by 3
    Crushed SEA
    2-0 but they also have dominated their easy games.

    Vikings:
    Lost to Bears by 3
    Beat DET by 12
    Crushed SEA
    2-1, good solid wins and we have all the looks of playoff contender. The Buffalo loss was a big letdown though especially considering what the other teams have done against losers.

    Falcons:
    Crushed CAR
    lost to NYG by 13
    Blown out by NO
    1-2, but definetly a tough schedule so far.

    Saints:
    Crushed ATL
    Beat PHI by 3
    lost to CAR by 3
    2-1, like the Vikes but they have not had a let down, and nobody wants to play NO in the superdome.

    NYG:
    beat ATL by 13
    beat PHI by 6
    lost to IND by 5
    lost to SEA by 12
    2-2, really tough schedule but they are still 4-2. Thier only games against losing teams were against division rivals, where anything can happen.

    There is a strong argument for every team there IMO. Although the Vikes are not given enough respect, I feel bad for the Giants. Their schedule is just plain scary.

    At least that is the way that I read it.
    I see where you could read it that way.
    I read it as a criticism since we were #18 the week before and they kept us at 18 even though we beat one of the stronger teams in the NFC and the Seahawks are at #10 in their ranking even though we beat them.
    I guess I took it as we didn't deserve the game since we got no reward for winning.
    Other teams that won that are ahead of us in their ranking moved up yet the Cowboys at 17 just ahead of us lost and yet didn't even drop a place.


    I don't know maybe I am just reading too much into it.

    Re: Week 8 power ranking

    i think all the extra crack not used up by GWAR's video productions has gotten into the fox sports coffee room..

    these guys are more of a biased joke then any other group i've read.

    You are.
    And that's okay - because we're all homers here and that's what we do.

    That quote is clearly talking about Hutch staying with his block that extra tick which allowed Chester to break free.
    It's what Hutch does - block like a maniac until the whistle blows.
