If there was a league award for assistant coach of the year, Special Teams Coordinator Brian Murphy would have to be a candidate. They are playing so much better this year on coverage units and returns. Huge difference.

Oh - and the Packers suck. Almost forgot.

AJ Hawk didn't strip Robison but he did throw him down. Pay attention to the game.The better team won today clearly. Also where was that forward progress call that Grant got today in the Metrodome? Grant fumbled. The Vikes have too many weapons for the fudgepackers.

YES! I was thinking the same thing.

I suspect the real reason the officials came back with the forward progress excuse was because they mistakenly wistled the play dead before the fumble was reviewed, causing (Allen?) to stop running toward the end zone. Would have been really hard for the officials to come back after the review and say, "Sorry, you're right. You get the ball, but we'll have to place it at the spot of the fumble, since we just screwed you out of the TD return..."

Whatever. Vikes won, I'm happy.

Actually, it's 'KAREN'. Or Erin, or Sharon. Whichever you prefer.

This is a dangerous team with the ball. Edwards should have fallen on the ball last week. Robison should have done the same yesterday. Neither one of these guys are reasons why we are dangerous with the ball.
Its been great to see such a dramatic turn around on special teams. Much better talent, credit to the front office and Chilly and much better coaching, credit to Murph.
What was the name of that special teams coach we had last year? Oh I think he went to the Rams. They're a good team, right?

My hammie is fine. Klink hates me. If I'm not back returning punts after the bye week, something's seriously wrong. I think Klink was scarred by T.O. in Philly. Am I going to get fired on X-mas eve or fined if my Grandma dies? At least I wasn't benched in favor of Maurice "lead bottom" Hicks.
