Just gotta laugh at them.
Congrats on the win guys. Peterson is a beast. I was playing with the NFL playoff machine on ESPN and was trying to figure out ways yall can make the playoffs. If yall beat the texans next week, you control your own destiny. But... If yall lose, the playoffs can still happen. Things that need to happen:
Win at home vs Packers.
You need the cowboys to win This week and Next Week, But then lose to the Redskins.
Then You need the Giants and Bears to each go 1-1 the final two weeks.
Giants play at Baltimore, Then at home vs Philly.
Bears play at Arizona, Then at Detroit.
Very good chance that the Giants lose to the Ravens, and bears lose at Detroit. Also.. If the Giants somehow lose their next two games, Bears go 1-1, Vikings are in regardless of the Redskins-Cowboys week 17 matchup.
Johnny Football For Heisman.
Passing- 273-400:3419 Yards, 24TD. Rushing- 1181 yards, 19 TD.
Are you people really complaining about Ponder after that game. He had 70% completion, threw for over 100 yards (yeah I know not a lot but still improvement). He also made some nice throws and had an impressive TD run that showed toughness. Get over the hate. We are now 8-6 and kept our playoff chances alive for another week. Just be happy for once and smile.
I just watched a interview of Everson griffen and he sounds just like Bobby Bouche from the waterboy lol
On a side note. Christian did fine this week. Everyone downing him has a reason in the past but let off the guy... He did a good job managing the game this week.
With the Texans taking the south and being at 12-2
Do they have anything to play for until the playoffs?
Are they a lock as the 1st seed, right?
Just thinking the Vikings going on the road just may be facing a resting team next week.
The same could be said the following week vs the Packers, #2 seed may be out of reach and playing the Vikings in Minny the final week may not be of any value to them.
With that said and a little help, the Vikings are still in the run.
Texans aren't a lock for the number one seed therefore we will get there best next week.
I would have never guessed that we would have eight wins at this point in the season.
I don't care if AP gets 10 yards. Get a win!
Its funny to see folks say hey Ponder completed 70% of his passes for over a 100 yards...progress. Whatever though this offense is all about Peterson and the miracle season coming back from career ending type injury to be on the brink of breaking the all time rushing yards in a season record.
Whatever Minnesota does roster wise over the next few seasons a few things they better do is lock up these guys for as long as they can.
Percy Harvin...nuff said
Harrison Smith...finally a real safety in Minnesota hallelujah!!!
Kyle Rudolf...next great TE
Everson Griffin...dude is just a special playmaker
Blair Walsh...isn't he already the best kicker in the league.
Jerome Felton...ask AP
"Do these pants make my butt look big babe"
We need to remember that we need to take it one game at a time. Having said this we officially control our own destiny. On nfl.com they do a if season ended today playoff picture. As of now we are in as the sixth seed and would play at GB. Here's the link http://www.nfl.com/m/playoffs/playof...content_stream. Time to do this guys. We have a chance. Let's make the most of it. SKOL VIKINGS!
