Vikings Loss, a huge win!

why doesn't anyone talk about the fact that we literally came one play away from beating the Vikings WITHOUT THE NFC's SECOND LEADING RUSHER IN OUR BACK FIELD? Seriously, the Vikings get little respect from me. They beat the lions, browns and a Niner team without their main offensive weapon!

IMO, the game would of been very diffrent with Gore. There where a few runs where Coffee made it into the secondary and instead of trying to break one, he put his head down and hit the defender. There is little doubt in my mind that Gore with his fantastic vision would of either taken one to the house or got us in scoring positon since he excels when he gets into the second and third level.

We deserve a lot more respect then we are getting...

Can anyone think of one person from the media mentioning the fact the Vikings almost got beat without Frank Gore. How is that not news worthy...

Um...we beat the Seahawks without their starting quarterback.

A win is a win.
we're about to beat a crap rams team with a quarter of the team missing....which of course makes them crap times two

that being said 3 divisional wins is niiiiiice

Ah, we were beating them with Hasselback for a whole half. They only had one real drive at the very end of the second.

What don't you understand.....
This is Brett Favre's media.. Until he is literally out of the NFL, the coverage will always be about him.. Fact is, Greg Lewis made the catch what it is.. Favre threw up a prayer ad Lewis answered it.. The media however is all on Favre's jock and makes it seem as if he knew exactly what he was doing..

I feel we got shafted by the media as well, but as someone pointed out a few weeks ago, let us stay out of the limelight.. We do better as underdogs.. And I still hate Favre.. He needs to give major props to his receiver..

Again, your missing the point. The Vikes are suppose to be one of the best in the NFC and we almost beat them without the most important player on our offense.

The fact that we are about to stomp out a crap team is irrelavent, unless of course e lose.
Who cares about respect? Wins are all that matter.

True that
I don't understand why everybody is so down and out about the Vikings game. It was a great play,bottom line. Yeah, it was a heartbreaker, but this is a new week and a new opponent.

No, you are missing the point. A win is a win and a loss is a loss. ALMOST beating a good team (no matter the circumstances) doesn't mean jack compared to beating ANY team (regardless of the circumstances).

And in all 3 games, we had a chance to ice the game TWICE, once with 5 minutes left and once with a minute or two left, and all six times we went 3 and out and gave the other team a chacne to win.

We are the type of team that seems to play about the same game against every opponent. Close, hard hitting, low scoring game. That's fine, but if you are going to be within a score or so of your opponents at the end of the game every week, you need to be able to ice the game when you have the chance.

We lost to a good team becaue we were not good enough to do that. All the "positives" that come out of the game don't mean jack compared to a win.

At the end of the season, if we miss the playoffs by one game, no one will let us in because we had a "moral victory" against the Vikes and the team in front of us won an extra game against an awful team.

Win=Good

Loss=Bad

It's as simple as that.

Hello McFlys...we were beating a Hawks team missing 9 of their starters.

And the so-called NFC champions are currently 1-2, same with the defending SB champs, well gosh be darned!

But it was our Fysical team that knocked half those players out. We beat the crap out of Seattle, literally and figuratively.
