Good Morning Gjallarhorn Episode 030 – In The Raw: Celebrating Sackles!

The Postgame Reactions of the Vikings win over the Lions

Good morning Horners! The Detroit Lions came to town where they had beaten the Minnesota Vikings twice at US Bank Stadium. Well, that did not happen on Sunday where the Vikings defense put on a clinic and set a new Vikings record sacking Matthew Stafford 10 times. Ted, Drew and I celebrated wildly. We loved the results.

Danielle Hunter now leads the NFL with 11.5 sacks but is not just a pass rushing specialist. He’s the whole deal playing the run game just as well. We saw that Everson Griffen, Sheldon Richardson, Linval Joseph, Tom Johnson, and Stephen Weatherly all combining with Hunter to put on a show. Andre Patterson has coached these young men to a level rarely seen and definitely deserved a game ball himself.

Adam Thielen extended his touchdown streak. Woot! Chad Beebe debuted and caught everything thrown his way. Then there was the return of the explosiveness of Dalvin Cook, who was clocked at 22.7 mph on his 70-yard run. He and LaTavius Murray look similar to Robert Smith and Leroy Hoard. Expect more of that in the future. Next stop will be for a Sunday night prime time game at the Chicago Bears to battle for the lead in the division.

We look forward to the bye week, where GMG has special shows planned, but for right now it is time to celebrate a very good win and the invention of the “sackle”. Laugh and relive this game with us, and tell us what you think.
