The Giants win at the Dallas Cowboys was impressive, and it was something the Vikings weren’t able to do in the regular season...But the game at Green Bay seemed like it would have favored the Vikings. Basically, I could see the Vikings in the position of the Giants: making late game interceptions and missing field goals until they finally make one. If the 10-6 Giants were able to maneuver their way through some tricky playoff situations, I could totally see a 9-7 Vikings team doing the same...if we could have only beat those Redskins! Now for the question if the Vikings could compete in the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots… that’s another issue entirely.

This years Super Bowl is in Phoenix, Arizona – I see local ticket broker Ticket King has Super Bowl Tickets for $3,400 – wow! If I could pay it I would, I just want to get out of this freezing cold tundra! A trip to sunny Phoenix sounds wonderful…

Oh, the poor Packers. The good folks of Green Bay, Wisconsin thought it was all wrapped up. I even saw a cartoon in the opinions section of the Pioneer Press joking that the game would be a cakewalk for the Pack. Brett Favre was at the helm in sub-zero temperatures. What could possibly go wrong?
Well… everything. Favre’s offense stalled when the Packers needed him the most. The New York Giants had multiple chances at winning the game due to Favre’s turnovers. Basically, the Packers handed the game over. Oddly, the weather turned out to be to the Giants favor. Put Favre in a dome or in 20 degree warmer weather and it would be no contest Packers all the way. Oh well, Favre is coming back next year right?

Compared to other NFC North teams, the Vikings ranked first with six players while the Detroit Lions had no players voted All-Pro. No All-Pros on a team that was supposed to go 10-6 this season according to Jon Kitna? The Vikings six All-Pros was second to only the New England Patriots, who had nine overall. Way to go Vikes!
