Cardinals at Vikings: That Stuff Was Bananas. . .B-A-N-A-N-A-S

Try getting that song out of your head for the rest of the afternoon. Come on, I dare you.

Anyway, I'm still sort of digesting the win for the Vikings this afternoon. Don't get me wrong, I still want Brad Childress out of town on the next available flight, but this afternoon this team showed more guts and more character than they had for almost the entire season, and came back in a game that showed them with a big advantage on the stat sheet, but where they kept shooting themselves in the foot to the point where it looked like the game. . .and the Vikings' season. . .was all but over.

And, in case you haven't heard yet, Brett Favre. . .in his 293rd career NFL start. . .threw for a career high in yardage today, finishing the afternoon with 446 yards after completing 77% of his passes and connecting for two touchdown passes. . .one to Adrian Peterson in the second quarter, and one to Visanthe Shiancoe with less than a minute left in the game to send the game to overtime.

We'll have more on this game later on. . .for now, after all the drama that's surrounded this team this week, let's just kick back, relax, and enjoy a Vikings' victory, ladies and gentlemen.

Oh, and in case you're wondering where the inspiration for the picture caption comes from. . .here you go.
