Who will win the title of The Worst Team in the NFC North Division? The loser of this game, that’s who.
Going into week 3 with no wins puts teams in a “do or die” situation. Desperate for a win, the teams usually battle it out. But as I was tuned into NFL RedZone, (since the game wasn’t on in my marker), I waited..for an update.. and waited.. and waited. Okay, so, the 1st quarter is almost over and no one has scored?
I turn to Twitter…there are a few tweeps at the game. .. The first tweet I read is : “Vikes fans are booing Favre.” Really? you don’t say. Doesn’t surprise me in the least. Worst fan in the NFL. It’s a fact.
More updates, Lions punt, Vikes punt, Lions punt, Vikes punt, Lions punt.. mmm.. good game. The next update was a Favre INT. Yeah! finally something good to report. The rest of the game was pretty much a sloppy series of punts, interceptions, fumbles a field goal and a couple of TD’s.
The one good thing that happened during the game was an 80 yard run by Adrian Peterson for a TD. (I did mention in my Friday Trash Talk that Vikes were lucky to have him since he’s the ONLY thing they have going on right now).
End result, the Vike pull one out, great. The Vikes fans will be gloating and talking about winning the division, perhaps the Super Bowl! But even as I congratulate some of my friends who follow the team, the response was always the same “Meh, well, I guess”. Typical Vikes fans.
Fast forward two days later and it’s all “We haven’t lost a game in our division”, “we’re so much better than the Packers” …although our record is still better than theirs.
Over all, not impressed by either team. Offense, defense, special team, WR’s, QB’s..all less than par. But someone had to win, right? I’m still predicting a 4-12 for this team of misfits and has-beens.
Favre’s age is starting to show. 201 yards passing, one TD and 2 INT’s. Speaking of age, I know he’s a grandfather now, and he seems to have aged 10 years this offseason, but I have to ask, what the hell was with that shirt he was wearing in the after game presser? I mean, I know he’s a grandpa, .. but really?
