Vikings So Bad It's Scary

The Minnesota Vikings left at least one fan moaning, "Booo!" this week in their 38-13 pre-Halloween loss to the Carolina Panthers. The blood-curdling screams were of course due to the play of the offense, which seemed to have risen from the dead last week against the Packers, but proved this week to be only zombies. The defense also looked lifeless, making me wish they had electrodes on their neck so I could give them a jump-start. I'd like to dress up as a fan of a different team because the Vikings, like vampires, "suck."

Derifter,

I feel your pain. The KC Chiefs lost also. Look at it this way, we found one more thing that we have in common.

I'd rather have in common that our teams are facing each other in the super bowl.

I could handle that, if the Chiefs won. Ha!

And they would! There's no doubt in my mind that they would. Unless the Vikings won just to get under my skin...

Until the Chiefs figure out that there is another part of playing football, called defense, I'm not going to be wasting much time waiting for them to get to the Super Bowl.

What's defense? What's offense? What are special teams? When you start talking like that, remember I'm from Minnesota. You'll have to explain all this fancy footbal lingo.

It's one thing when a team is playing bad, but it's another when a player gets hurt. I hate to see the Vikes quarter back go down with an injury, that may take 12 months to heal.

At least the Vikings had a good QB, now they don't even have that.

Brad Johnson was here about oh, maybe 8 or 10 years ago and as I recall he was ok then. He can't run like Culpepper, but he's got experience and an arm. He took the Bucs to the Super Bowl.

So he'll probably take the Vikings all the way this year, huh? (I can't keep a straight face when I say that.)

Johnson is ok. He's a better back-up than what most teams have at back-up.

It sounds like you might not get to see what Randy Moss is all about. Sore ribs, sore groin. I wonder if he'll play Sunday.
