Well Rat Turd, What NFL Team do you have in that state of Musty-Cornfield Illusions? Only wine there is, is from the sour grapes you grow in that cesspool you call a state..

Wow just read an article that shows me why you Viking fans are such cry babies. Your coach is "King cry baby" saying the Saints did things outside the rules of the NFL. Well riddle me this Batman...How come only 2 flags were thrown, one was sketchy and only 1 fine was given to DE Bobby McCray if the Saints played dirty and outside the rules.

I think Childress needs to worry more about his RB's fumbling issues and making sure after eack series that Favres diaper is changed rather than what took place last season losers!

For the people who keep knocking Brett down.
Please read my above comments about a whole team effort is needed to win a game.

For years in Green Bay, Brett was the team. Management hired pathetic runners, receivers and blockers. There were very few people that Brett could go to in a pinch add to that a poor defense a few fumbles and the team gets behind. Then Brett in these situations pushes it and when he does he makes mistakes as he tries to pull the game out of the crapper. How many times did Brett pull off a come from behind victory in the last 2 mins?

Instead of focusing your anger against Brett, focus it on the GB management team who should have built a better team giving Brett more options during the game. As for Rodgers he is no Brett and unless GB management gives Rodgers better receivers and running backs then GB will never make it to the SB on Rodgers back.

Really?? He was the whole team? Favre had plenty of weapons in GB, and some good defenses also. Ahman Green was one of the best running backs in the league for a 3-4 year span. KGB was one of the top sack leaders in the NFL for numerous years. He had plenty of talent that surrounded him.

Remember this is a team game, so no Brett can't do it all by himself. Your whole comment is dillusional. Rodgers may not be Favre, but who is??

Though the problem is looking at the GB stats shows me a different picture.(Note: I looked at the stats for 1997-2007) Just looking at the First Downs via rushing in 2007 they had 69, compared with 103 back in 1997. The only year they got over 103 was in 2003 when they had 127. Look at the Packers Stats page (passing yards/rushing yards etc..) and you will come to the same conclusion, you will start to see a decline in overall team performance starting after their last SB. In the 2007 season the team was pathetic, Brett carried the team that year. Poor coaching and management was to blame.

McMuffin still has these dweebs fooled.
Whatever nonsense comes out of TT's mouth, McMuffin is right there to say 'yes sir', they are joined at the hip.
When the fans have had enough, they will be a package firing, two for the price of one if you will.

I say sign em both to a lifetime contract, then I'll hope they live forever, LOL.

I agree they are a package deal. When one goes the other will follow. The real problem is Mark Murphy the president, he's just another yes man for Thompson.

Hey Saints fans. Thanks, again, for caring so much about the Vikings that you come on a Vikings blog after reading the stories.

However, I've never read anything interesting about the Saints that would make me want to spend the time getting onto your papers to comment.

It's a great compliment for all the time and attention you give the Vikings.
