A Vikings Holiday Christmas Wish

If I had one wish that I could wish this holiday season, it would be that all the children of the world to join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace. If I had two wishes….

Viking Thunder was not expecting a Christmas miracle today. In fact, with the state of the Viking defensive back field, the Bears should have won handily. As usual, the defensive back field has been a big bust this year. With a pretty red ribbon on. (To see the pretty red ribbon and the big bust click here.) It was no small miracle that the Vikings kept the game close. That small miracle has a name. And that name is Jared Allen.

Jared Allen recorded 3.5 sacks today (The team 7 total) as he pursued the NFL single season record for sacks. The record is 22.5, Allen ended with 22. A spectacular season for sure that sheds maybe just a glimmer of hope for the Vikings next year. For sure the front runner for defensive player of the year. Even though media whore Brett Favre is no longer with the team, he still haunts us. This nightmare, Favre smirking after he was sacked by Strahan has been playing like a bad movie through my head for the past day.

But....

Keeping in the spirit of this magical time of year, this Viking fan has a bag full of wishes I hope will be granted.

If I had just one wish I could wish this holiday season,…
It would be for a blue chip draft pick that would start right away. Say an offensive left tackle from USC named Matt Kalil. However, with the #3 pick, perhaps the Browns or several other teams will want to move up to select QB Robert Griffin. The Browns have two #1 picks. And let’s not kid ourselves, the Vikings are more than one drafted player away from restoring the team to competitiveness. With extra high picks, the Vikings could quickly restock talent.

If I had just two wishes I could wish this holiday season,…
It would be that the Vikings are active in free agency.The short list the Vikings should target this year are, a top flight receiver to compliment Percy Harvin, a left guard, a right guard, two cornerbacks, a safety, and a linebacker. (And that is the short list)

If I had just three wishes that I could wish this holiday season,…
It would be that the Vikings get the stadium issue locked down by the end of January. The lease is up and every day without a home, the Vikings move farther away. I don’t want to cheer for the L.A. Vikings.

If I had just four wishes that I could wish this holiday season,…
It would be a new head coach. Leslie Frasier and his scheme is not working. And it’s not only Frasier, it’s the entire management. Like a good Catholic exorcism, it’s time to cast out the entire lot. (I need an old priest and a young priest) How about Fischer, Cowher.

If I had just five wishes that I could wish this holiday season,…
It would be that Adrian Peterson returns to the field 100% and on time for training camp. It appears that his surgery has gone well and by the looks of his hospital New year’s Eve picture, he is in good spirits.

If I had just six wishes that I could wish this holiday season,…
It would be that the Vikings win the North, get the bye week in the playoffs, beat the Saints in the championship game and obliterate the Steelers in the Super Bowl.

And that all the children of the world to join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace.

Happy New Year Viking Fans.
