Dear Santa, Why?!... Ugh. Last night was the Cardinals game in repeat. It hurt. I'm not gonna lie. Anger, disapointment, and a flash of (its over) hit me. But I stay strong because of one reason...
We're still the #2 team in the NFC. That means we still have a first round bye... for now. If the "Hot 'n' Cold" Vikes can manage to pull out a big game monday night and lock up the 2 seed, we'll have our somewhat, well deserved bye. This gives me hope. Lots and lots of hope.
We have yet to lose at home this year. Doesn't mean we can't lose, but we haven't. Winning our division already means a home playoff game. We need that bye. We do not want an extra playoff game, playing in Philly or someother horrible outdoors stadium.
I strongly believe that if we're the team 'we thought we were' lol we'll turn it up on MNF and beat the ugly Bears. We need to get back to that 6-0 team. We need that bye. We need to hand it to some team like Dallas, or Philly in the playoffs at home. This will induce a sense of hope going into the NFC championship game.
This is still our year guys. We can't lose faith. It's the NFL, and we're bound to lose games, including the ones we really, really, really don't want to lose. :(
So join me. Rekindle your faith. Have hope as we lock up that 2 seed. Then we can all be gleeful as we say "We are the NFC North division champion Vikings, with a first round bye. Life is sweet!"
