Hot Talk Minnesota Vikings: Playoffs Here We Go.
Here we go folks, finally the big game Pats vs. Giants. I have to admit I am somewhat surprised about the Giants but at the same time I felt going into the season that the Giants were a very underrated team. It seems like when the New York media is down on their own team it is greatly magnified and blown out of proportion. Eli has proven that he was worth the 1st pick of the draft by getting them to the Super Bowl, now lets see if he can lead them to an improbable victory over the unbeaten New England Patriots. I will be rooting for the Patriots myself. I know that by cheering for the Pats I will be in the minority but I have been a big fan of Tom Brady since he came into the league. I remember mentioning to someone that he is going to be another Joe Montana and by god he is just about there. Patriots in a very competitive game until the 4th quarter. New England 41 Giants 24. Randy Moss will be the MVP.
Now to some Minnesota Vikings talk. So what would you guys think of JP Losman, chances are is that he will either be traded or cut by the Buffalo Bills. What the heck he has got the attitude and he is still fairly young and heck maybe it will help us keep Mewelde Moore. Also there has been talk at the Senior Bowl that the Vikings scouts have shown alot of interest in Colt Brennan. I hope not, the guy is 6'2" and 185 lbs... that's right I said 185 lbs. He is absolutely puny by NFL standards. Although there have been comparisons to Jeff Garcia who also has a very small frame. I just don't trust a guy who plays in the spread offense though. Does anyone remember Andre Ware, Ty Detmer, David Klingler. These are all very good examples why not to take him. I would only take a waiver on him if he was available with one of the Vikings two 3rd round picks. Then and only then would I even take a chance on this guy.
All this talk has brought me to this, I would like to hear your opinions of what the Vikings need to do in the off-season and be specific. I don't want to hear" get a new QB." If so then who is it tell me who is out there. Lets get some offseason speculation rolling. Also I would like to hear what you think is going to happen in the Super Bowl. Hopefully I can get some reaction to you Viking fans out there to what you thought of the Championship game between the Pack and the Giants. Tell me how you really feel. Skol Vikings.
