Curses?

It seems as though the Vikings are cursed to forever be without a SB title. Maybe it started when the ref was hit with a whiskey bottle after the no call push off. Maybe it was before possibly one of the original Vikings urinated in a sacred burial ground. No one knows if the curse is real and no one truly knows what the cause may have been if there is one but what I do know is that this site is cursed with roaming posts. Posts that were made around 9pm but have somehow crawled into the 5pm range or even earlier. Was this caused by HCG preforming his namesake in front of his computer or has wordpress gone bat shit crazy we may never know.

Insanity? No, it’s called being a Vikings fan.

  1. I have had it this year. Just done. There is nothing more to say. There was one positive take away Sunday and that was when Ponder was benched. That was the smartest move all year, although he was playing well early– and Cassel was intercepted right away– but the fact that Frazier made a big change like that — a change he has been reluctant to do in nearly three years, was a good sign. A sign of what? Again, I don’t know. The end.

    • That draft would be awesome! From what I’ve read, Nix would be exactly what we need on the DLine – a massive, blocker eating behemoth for the 1-technique to give the other 3 linemen a bit more freedom to get in the backfield.

      With that in mind, Nix is the first DT off the board in this mock with our 2nd round pick, and I highly doubt that no team is going to pick a DT in the first round. Everywhere I’ve looked, Nix is projected as the #1 player at his position, so if anyone is selected, it will probably be him. Here’s hoping though!

  2. Well, I was a Ponder pick-six away from nailing last Sunday’s game dead-on. It’s a new week with an old opponent and the same prediction:

    Satan’s Minions 34 Team Travesty 20…… (it doesn’t matter who QBs, there isn’t a starter in the bunch)

  3. How’s this for a positive spin:

    Innovated, orchestrated, and implemented the widely adopted Cassel Carousel, utilizing different quarterbacks every quarter, resulting in 25% decrease in QB injuries

  4. “Wilson completed 13 of 18 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns.

    Ponder, who was coming off an injury to his non-throwing shoulder, completed 13 of 22 passes for 129 yards. He was playing pretty well before throwing interceptions on back-to-back possessions.”

    How sad can it be when our QB totals 101 fewer yards on the same number of completions, and writers say he was “playing pretty well.” ??????

    • Honestly, except for the fumble in the first 90 seconds, Ponder was playing decent the first half– but that is like saying we have an excellent heart surgeon– he performs well until the final 30 minutes and then drops the operation instruments. I think he has shown enough that we could get a good trade value– with the right coach/mentor I bet he would be decent.- but we definitely need to move on while AD is still in his prime.

    • Senility setting in. A quick check of the all-time QB stats doesn’t put him at the top of any list other than “QB’s Named Fran Tarkenton.”

      8th in career passing yards, 6th in TDs, 7th in game-winning drives, and tied for 58th in passer rating. Matt Cassel has a better rating than Tark.

      Love him, but he’s slipping.

  5. “The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What’s that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you’re too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating…

    …and you finish off as an orgasm.”
    – George Carlin

  6. Vikings rally for one more win this season before hanging up the cleats and planning for the future. 24-21

    I’m outta here for a 2-day conference in Hopkins, then burning up north Friday night so I can spend all weekend in a tree.

    Skol y’all!

Keep it purple...
