Well, I just got back from attending the NFC Championship here in AZ, and I can't believe the Cardinals....yes, the perennial loosers Cardinals, are going to the Super Bowl! Unbelievable. They played a great game against the same Eagles team that beat the Vikings. Yes, this is the same Cardinals team that the Vikings destroyed....in the same loud home Cardinals' stadium exactly a month ago today.
From a Viking's standpoint I can only think that they must look at today's game as hope that this Viking's team is not far from being able to win a Super Bowl birth themselves. Having a veteran QB was essential to this win. Warner made a number of great plays, not only completions but some of his incompletions were throw aways that avoided sacks. TJ just hasn't seemed to make the progress needed to be able to advance as a leader.
I hope the Vikes fix the QB problem. The Viking's team doesn't need an overhaul, just a new leader in the huddle. And oh yeah, Wisenhunt is a great coach who assembled a great staff....too bad the Vikes didn't grab him when he became available from Pittsburgh. I'm not a Chilly fan, it wouldn't break my heart to see him go, but that would probably set the team back at least 2 years.
If the Cardinals can make a Super Bowl, the Vikes have to keep up the hope that they are close to making it back themselves. Good luck in 09 Vikes! We will see the Purple here in AZ again next year!
