Action Law Suit
To peak, or not to peak ... that is the question. The words of Shakespeare,
sort of speak. It is without question that New Orleans, and Drew Bree's
are now the scariest team in the NFL. That Monday nighter made sure of
that ... or is nasty cheatin' Brother Bill, of those nasty Boston Beaners
playing with us once again.
You might remember the start of the 2009 season. It was the Jets and their
remarkable rookie quarterback that was tearing up the league. What soon
followed was the 5-0 New York Giants ... an unstoppable machine. Then it
transferred to the undefeated Broncos and the Bengals, the later of which could
of been undefeated if not for that fluke play between these same two teams on
Then the head to head match-up in Pittsburgh. A 28 point swing which
proclaimed the Steelers as having the most dominant defense in the league.
The actual result of which was an exposing of the reigning NFL champions.
Several loses then ensued.
Of course, Peyton Manning then found his way onto the radar screen only to
survive several fourth quarter come-backs. Then is transferred to San
Diego and soon it might be those pesky Titans. For now its the New Orleans
Saints which are on top of the pyramid. The question is, was Monday
November 30th too early to peak. Only time will tell.
Which brings me to my beloved Vikings. Dane Cook couldn't of said it any
better. Is it MFC ... is your name MFC. We've seen this crew
dismantle teams consecutively, and to a man, they will tell you unequivocally
that they haven't played their best game yet. Yeah, it sounds like just
talk ... but is it?
In watching their last game, it was entertaining if not completely dysfunctional
in many ways. Am I concerned ... hardly ... especially with Chili/V-V
keeping tempo going with The Finger. It's
funny in that the more they screw up as a team using the finger ... the stronger
and stronger this team gets. It is completely counterintuitive, but again,
victories can be that way. Apparently the safe bet gets you
Pretend for a moment that we didn't play the Hawk's and look at the play of
AD. If you put Detroit and Chicago's games together, AD clearly has a
problem. The best news of all is that this is all about to be put to bed.
In the last game, in one series of plays, I could swear there were five
penalties, where 1 of the 5 was an off sides cadence secured back by
Favre. If this isn't evidence, along with the other drives with penalties,
of a monkey screwing a coconut, then I'm in la-la-land! MFC, are you MFC!
So, getting back to the point. It is quite clear that the Minnesota
Vikings are not peaking as a team. That's ok. It's not time to do
that yet but that day is coming soon.
Which brings me the THOUGHT of thoughts. For a good deal of my life it
wasn't acceptable to make that run. It's ok now. Don't be
afraid. I give you my permission to cast your lot. Here is why.
The Minnesota Vikings are the first team in the history of the NFL to lose four
Super Bowls. This is a stigma that I've lived with my entire life.
Do you think it matters if the Minnesota Vikings are the first team to lose five
(5). Gentlemen, its a headline ... that is all it is. If we played
that game in that 1975 season, it just might have been that way for almost 45
This is your headline. Losers of five. They are words. I'm a
big boy now. I can handle it. The difference here is that I don't
care about that any more as the fear is completely gone. There is a
greater purpose now for each and every one of us.
There was a senior aged newly wed wife that once described her sex life.
She said it was like the lottery. You got to play to win. The same
applies to this game. It is time.
You need not ask for any ones permission, especially mine, however I always
appreciated when my father said, it's gassed up (and you have my permission to
take the car). Then he's say, "Have a good time son".
Maybe you just needed to hear these words. Maybe you need to hear these
words from more than just me. Believe me when I tell you, that there are
many that feel the same way that I do, they are just incapable of saying so.
I live happily like a hermit. They drag me out and about almost kicking
and screaming. Why? It is because I add color to their lives.
Maybe it is time to paint that picture.
