St. Louis Rams at Minnesota Vikings
Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome
Another game has come and passed. . .
Another team has kicked our ass. . .
Wake me up. . .when the season ends.
-Sung to the tune of Green Day's "Wake Me Up When September Ends"
There's actually a song for that based on the 2005 Vikings. . .I can't find the link at the moment, but when I do I'll post it here. I'm sure (hopeful?) that whoever did the '05 version will come up with an updated version for '06.
With the Rams (and pretty much every non-New York Giant team in the NFC) being eliminated from playoff contention with the Giants' win last night, neither team is playing for anything here. The only "drama" in this one is the return of Scott Linehan and Corey Chavous to the Metrodome, as well as seeing if the Vikings can set the modern-day rush defense record. On top of that, we need to see if Tarvaris Jackson will be able to rebound from his performance at Green Bay last week.
I think all of those things will happen. . .I also think the Vikings end the season with a 6-10 record.

My commenting in the thread might be a bit limited. . .I've got some work stuff I need to get done that I've been putting off for the last week or so. Feel free to participate, though!
