    Why did birk go in at the end of the game

    He did not want to end his streak of games finished...
    or
    Maybe he felt like he contributed to the win...

    I must admit I missed that but perhaps because Withrow was not blocking anyone!
    can we clone Bud Grant?

    Why did birk go in at the end of the game

    Heres the article of why he replace withrow.

    KFAN dot com

    Punt returner Keenan Howry suffered a sublexed right shoulder, which could sideline him for a month or more. The injury will be re-evaluated Monday.

    Center Cory Withrow suffered a right knee sprain in overtime and was replaced by Matt Birk, who spent most of the game on the bench to rest his high ankle sprain. Withrow will be re-evaluated Monday, although Birk is expected to start Sunday against New Orleans.

    Linebacker Dontarrious Thomas strained his right groin. He split time the rest of the game with Max Yates.

    Nickelback Terrance Shaw sprained a toe on his right foot. He was replaced by Ralph Brown, who played poorly.

    Reserve cornerback Rushen Jones suffered a strained hamstring.

    Looks like the Vikes are going to pick up Bill Conaty (I think I butchered his name). The backup center we had in preseason when Birk was hurt.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
