Every haymaker the Packers landed, the Vikings were able to bounce back. It is a trend with this team.

it might be tough for some guys to swallow, but that's an indication of good coaching. and that players have bought in to it.

i'm not trying to stir anything up, but who was missing...?

Percy.


I don't believe Percy's absence and the team's victory say much about each other.

It was an amazing team win that probably would have been that much more amazing with Percy on the field making plays for us.

Oh my goodness, what a game!!!

Now to put this in perspective, I was at 34,000 ft flying from Chicago to Seattle during the whole game. Got to check in on it with some air time on the iPad . . . and as the air time ran out, Blair Walsh connected . . . I think I might've re-joined the mile-high club Laughing

I've watched the highlights and read the play-by-play so from a hind-sight perspective, I can only pray the Vikes play similarly well -- but without penalties in GB on Saturday night.

I don't know how Adrian keeps going the way he does, but I can say that if he rips off 3 or 4 15+ yard runs early at Lambeau, the Packers defense might get a little demoralized.

Now for Kudos -- The Whole Organization gets a major high-5 Very Happy Even as staunch (and blind) as one can be as a Vikings Fan, I don't recall anyone predicting they would truly/seriously finish 10-6 and be in the playoffs. This was truly a great team win!!!

For this game -- top performers are:
1. Christian Ponder
2. Adrian Peterson
3. Everson Griffen (barely nudging #4)
4. Blair Walsh
5. Anyone and Everyone that blocked all day long!

The coaches have been "brilliant" the past few weeks, but I will say they need to do better at getting the Pack off their passing game cushions.

I love hearing Marshall Faulk's commentary on Tramon Williams deciding not to tackle Peterson the other night as a business decision. Laughing

Erin Henderson: “I think it was everything you hope a game like that would be. I believe it lived up to the hype. After I finished watching it, I asked my wife, ‘That’s an instant classic, huh?’ That should pretty much be on ESPN Classic right now. It was that good of a game.”

“It’s amazing to watch. Sometimes you have to kind of remove yourself from it in order to be able to see it from that perspective. All so often, we get caught up in what we’re doing and what we have going on that we forget we were also fans growing up. And that these are the kinds of players and the kind of legends that we would have been cheering on and watching.”

“When you watch the TV copy, you see Adrian’s eyes. You see how he’s looking, what he’s looking at when he’s making all these cuts. And you get a different appreciation for it. When you go home and watch it, you’re like ‘Ohhhh, this is why everybody loves the NFL so much.’”

One hundred-year-old John Edward Larson likes the Vikings on Saturday night. The former road paver from East Bethel has never been married, never moved from the quaint farmhouse in which he was born and, until six days ago, had never been to a Vikings game.

Larson, who turned 100 on Dec. 12, received a birthday card on White House stationery signed by President and Michelle Obama and another card signed by Gov. Mark Dayton. But the most thrilling birthday greeting came from the Vikings, who, after reading a news story about Larson, invited him to be their guest at the regular-season finale Sunday against Green Bay at the Metrodome.

"Here's a fan who religiously watches our games and had never been," said Jeff Anderson, the Vikings' director of corporate communications. "We all felt, this guy needs to be in the Dome for a game. It was an easy decision."

Larson was absolutely stunned when Vikings representatives arrived at his rural home in East Bethel at 1:15 p.m. to pick him and his family up -- "in the biggest stretch limousine I've ever seen," said Larson's sister, Irene Anderson, 95.

^It's nice to see the young fans getting some attention!
